Being a wedding photographer is super easy. You just show up on a wedding day, take some photos and your work is done. Right?
For some brides, many of them really, that is the belief. They balk at your pricing, and liken you to their friend who also has a nice camera and maybe they should just have him take photos for them.. Some people just don’t understand the work involved in wedding photography.
Of course, in most service based organizations, the job is usually thankless and requires more work than people actually think about and understand. The following is a fun infographic created by an Italian portrait and wedding photographer Francesco Spighi, that shows just how much work is involved in wedding photography and why we charge so darn much. I’m sure you wedding photographers can relate, and any photographer really, who may be taking a brief editing break right now to read this.
So whether your specialty is weddings, portraits, landscape or whatnot, we understand your pain, even if a bride may not. Happy Sunday.
