Ohh man, this one could be a doozy! It’s a good thing I’m sitting in sunny San Francisco right now wearing shorts and sandals because otherwise I could be all shakin in my boots! This week’s question that came in from Alexis Cuarezma. Alexis is a total baller photographer who started in weddings and has since moved to sports portraiture. In fact he just photographed the US Men’s National Team (It’s a soccer team people!) before they went down to Brazil to dominate Ghana in the World Cup. Check out his photos for Sports Illustrated here!
Because he is a photographer he mentioned getting this question being directed towards him quite often, and thus wanted to hear another photographer’s thoughts:
“How much money should a bride expect to invest for “good” wedding photography on her wedding day and what should she expect in return for that amount invested (e.g. albums, prints, digital files, hrs, etc).”
I could imagine about 40 different analogies to this question, “How much should I pay for a car?”, “How much should I pay for a purse?”, “How much should I pay for a lifetime subscription of Taqueria Cancun burritos?” … wait… Anyone else ask that last one? Just me? Damnnit!!!!!!
Well… burritos aside. Here goes nothin!
