Packages for 6000 include albums and folio boxes and products that add up to thousands. Includea also videography (3 extra professionals on the day that also need to be paid as such) and long documentary edits. A £6000 package can easily add up to £2000+ of expenses (excluding insurance, maintenance, equipment, advertisement, etc) and 300+ hours of work.
£6,000 for photos for one wedding??????? (skeptical) Do you and the cake makers rob banks together on weekends? (excited) Also, it was hard to hear you as the violins were playing so loud. I shed a tear listening to your story - how can life be so unkind???
A lot of people having a go at cake makers and photographers here. I don't know about all cake makers, but I know that on average a wedding booking takes 90 to 100 hours of my work. I charge from 1500 to 6000 and after all my expenses and time worked per wedding I make roughly £10-15 profit per hour. I have no paid holidays, no retirement scheme, no free weekends during the summer and so on. You guys have no idea. If you think wedding photography is easy money, go ahead and do it yourselves
Save the money for your divorce or hiring a hitman. Preparation is everything. Even a cheap hitman will cost you.
Reminds me of when I got quotes for repairs to a property. The quote tripled when I said it was an insurance claim rather than cash payment :o
