How many people (Poul Jensen below), earning $2k per year can buy a D700, plus the lens and flashguns needed. I started with 2 bodies,2 lenses and 1 flash. Cost $1,000. The female photographerwho replied to the initial Craiglist post, earns about $50 per hour before tax etc. Low for a professional. Some photographers advertise prices that will lose them money. Most work 12-14 hour days including weekends. Spread over the cost of the business, you can earn the same per hour working at a supermarket checkout ($10/hour) approx. I wonder how much Bridezilla was willing to pay and what she expected to get for it? Occasionally when couples do query the price, I tell them, after the cost of the album(s), they are paying form my time, experience and abilities as a wedding photogarpher. That is basically what we are selling - and although this is what this bride seemed to be looking for, she did not seem to want her photographer to make a profit or a living
