GREAT RANT! Why Photographers Wedding Fees Are "High"

Earlier today my friend and fellow photographer posted a link to a craigslist ad from a woman in Seattle looking for a wedding photographer. The woman was upset because she thought that $3,000 for a wedding photographer was “wack” because all we do “is hang out at a wedding taking tons of photos and editing them” and that we are “making so much money its crazy.”

I first read this post earlier today while I was running errands and my head almost exploded. I immediately started drafting a horribly mean and punishing response in my head, but by the time I got home, I realized that this is probably a common misconception and that maybe I should try to explain why photographers charge what we do for our work....

  1. Yeah, I was out the other night with a woman telling me how she was going to buy some paint and a big canvas and create her own abstract painting. Sigh. It's as if people think anyone can take a photo or create a painting, and your skills and hard work are worth nothing.
