    I've a coworker who started out with wedding photography & film, then moved to digital, and now has an online magazine (and has started real-life publications). He doesn't do weddings anymore (except the odd favor). Basically, he said it can often not be worth the drama. It is an important event, and many people can be overbearing or have unrealistic expectations. Just something to keep in mind if you decide to attempt this.

    For what its worth

    When I am pricing out a quoted price is always better than by the hour
    I give at less
    1. some detail what is including (time on job site, number of photos and if book is made(
    2. when I will be done with the work (photos and books)
    3. some detail of quality , equipment and materials you use.
    4. What not included and will not do

    I have work in Manufacturing Hangar doors, Custom work machine work and gunsmith I not been ever paid for photography work
    Ever one was happy even if had to go back the quote and say it was not in the quote and will be happy to do that for this price
    This save and made a lot of money for me and almost all time they happy too. They will be one or two a year that will need some free just give them a few thing and will save you lot of headache then next time change them extra for the headache,

    Note: By the hour is almost always they will say you took to long so and so would do it for $xxxx.xx

    Good luck

    It really depends and I say that because I've seen crappy work from photographers who were charging way to much for their work. I think you should always check a portfolio first and then decide if the price has what you are looking for. Package number of photos ect. I think it really depends on the area and the rates are determined from there.

    Chi, you are a digital photographer posting on a non-digital forum. You are new here, and your posts aren't adding anything to the threads you post them on but you've been sure to include key-worded links in the signature of your messages. This smells like spam to me (link spam to be perfectly accurate) and I have reported it to the moderators. If I'm wrong please feel free to correct the record.

    No not Correct not smelling like spam ( nor link spam ) to be perfectly accurate. I didn't realize you weren't allowed to be a digital photographer and view or post on a non-digital forum. I've always had an interest in non-digital photography. You are entitled to your opinion which i've noticed you share quite often.

    Pricing your wedding services is easy, think of a number and double it then add some for your profit, because because whatever you think it's going to cost you in time film and processing is going to end up costing you at the very least double that figure.
