Re: Good Wedding Prints Bring New Customers

I should have used 'budget weddings' as I understand many can't afford a full time working pro and that's where all the photography hobbyists with thousands of $$$ of equipment come in, many know how to use their equipment and can produce good results for the B&G.

My 1st wedding was a 2nd wedding for a relative in 1970, I was still in high school and had a Nikon F, I was paid $50. (that $360. today), I gave them the undeveloped film. 2nd wedding was a neighbor who was at the 1st wedding, they paid me $100. and again I gave them the undeveloped film.

I liked doing wedding and made a business out of it. I understand that many could not afford my companies services, but there are enough that will pay thousands for 2 or 3 days of coverage with 2 or 3 photographers.

mandmp; 100% of my income since 1972 has been due to a camera in my hand. My hobby turned into an enjoyable & profitable career. Retired in 2008ish I now shoot for fun and for charities (for free).
