Sneak Peek: The Essential Pricing Guide For Wedding Photographers

Establishing a successful wedding photography business, on the outset, can seem either like a dream job, or an incredibly daunting task, or somewhere in between. And while you have to have skill and talent and the ability to produce consistent images for hours and hours of shooting time, almost equally important is your ability to understand your business, your finances (costs, profits), and your value-add.

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. Design Aglow has created another exceptional educational tool that will cover the groundwork of basic photography business finance and budgets, provide you with Best Practices thinking to set up budgets for cost recovery, calculating your time and paycheck and pricing to support your brand strategy. Stay tuned for the launch tomorrow!

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping.
