My first wedding photographed and edited and delivered.
And I learned a LOT. Most importantly, I did not charge NEARLY enough.

oh I feel you… My first wedding I went into thinking I was building my porfolio and that it would be a learning experencce. but with all the editing I did it made my working time on the photos be way bigger than ever expected. I must ask… how much did you end up charging them?
The groom is my coworker and friend, so I put it forth to them to see what they could pay. *cough*200*cough*. Not NEARLY enough. Like, I can’t believe I thought it would be an acceptable figure crazy. Oh well, talk about a learning experience…
So excited it’s done and ACCOMPLISHED!
Um, yeah. $200 is the *sitting* fee for my birth photographer. lol
Just goes to show what I was valuing my time for, apparently. Not going to make that mistake again!
and yes … next time, charge more. xo
Thank you, hon! And oh yes, most definitely will. Most definitely.
Oh yes. I know what you mean! It is SO MUCH WORK. Do we get to see some of the pics? Did I miss them?
Here is the post I did: https://mrssoup.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/wedding-preview and I should have some more of them up on my Flickr, now that they are actually done!
