I have a big investment in my *pro* equipmen, back-up equipment & software. I have to advertise to attract clients ... in a very competitive environment. I work like a dog April, May, June, Sept & Oct. I have very little work, November thrugh Feb. & I've lowered my prices f/the past three years to stay competitive. Doesn't sound like the job f/everyone. But I love what I do. And I've remained friends (& get referrals) f/many previous brides.

Yes, some charge (in this area) starting prices of $1,500 to $1,800. But I'm below that (entry point) this year. As are a # of my pro friends.

Some pros have egos & will not touch a wedding below $2k. They are really hurting in this market. You have to do what is necessary to keep your business solid.

It isn't a job f/everyone. You have to have a very calm personality & know the technology inside & out. The best photographers are creative -&- have the technical expertise. But you won't get rich doing (only) wedding photography.
