the essential pricing guide for wedding photographers is here!

Pricing can make or break a business. We see it every day”¦and we know that even with the highest level of skill and talent, if you do not have the ability to understand your business, your finances (costs, profits), and your value, failure can be eminent. But, it doesn't have to be! Understanding the true cost considerations of your business allows you to determine how to price to cover your costs and your time, then to price for your brand - two very different, but equally important, concepts. In addition to 100+ pages of solid content, our Essential Pricing Guide for Wedding Photographers includes ready-to-use price lists that you can implement today and immediately start elevating your business practices and achieving sales that reach a higher level of success and profitability. Finally, of course, we have our industry experts weigh in with their advice and experiences to place everything into perspective for you. We designed this product to be an investment that pays for itself multiple times over with every wedding you book and every sale you make.

From the guide:

"... far too often, we see people arbitrarily throw up pricing numbers, typically too low, and attribute it to factors such as experience or Cost of Living or shooting “all digital” and not considering costs, value, skill, or uniqueness and differentiators of what they offer. Typically they have not even begun to factor in the total amount of time it truly takes to service an end-to-end wedding client..."

"I was able to price myself in a way that was truly satisfying for the first time. I learned that time equals money and how to value my own talent. I want clients who love my work, and if they truly love my work, they will find a way to afford me. I want clients who trust me, like me, and value me...and if those things are true, they will pay whatever it takes to have me be their wedding photographer. That is exactly how I want things to be." - Bre Thurston

"Shooting weddings is so much more than shooting weddings, it's knowing your vendors, and understanding your bride's schedule, and having a support staff that can help you out. And it's experience that helps builds that." - Caroline Winata, Milou + Olin Photography

"Relationship and experience are key. You are essentially selling the invisible. You are the product. If you are a good photographer and can't sell, find someone else to represent you. You have to be a believer, it's not good enough for clients to like you, you want them to be evangelist of you!" - Brook, Alisha + Brook Click here to see more!

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
