My male friend that questioned my pricing was just using the whole BUT ITS A FRIEND thing. I am one of those people that can be made to feel guilty really easily! Bad quality :( Plus her husband is kinda making bank so its not like they're dead broke haha.

Quoting Jossx:" No worries! Yeah they are shitting quality because like I said I just took a screen shot of my phone ... [snip!] ... like I said I even surprised myself a bit haha. The jumping one is my FAVORITE! Pain in the ass to get that shot though haha."

I can only imagine I haven't tried a jumping pictures yet but love the way they look. And like I said if they have seen your work which you said she has and you feel comfortable doing it then go for it. And charging that isn't bad because it will be an all day thing and then you will have to go through and edit them and if they want prints etc.

See thats what I think the best deal is! I'm not only giving them like 15 or 30 pictures. They get the ones I edit plus all of the originals. I think I only put 13 of my favorite ones on FB and there were around 120 on the USB drive I gave her.

If they agreed to it, then it's obviously not a problem. Your friend should butt out, lol. That's a lot of work for $400.

I have a friend that works in a studio but also does free lance work. I talked to her about doing my wedding and she said she normally charges $2500 for an all day Saturday wedding.

Most ppl around here charge well over 2000 a wedding. I did my first wedding a few weeks back and I did it for free because it was my husbands sister and it was their wedding gift to them. But I am thinking that from now on since I have received so much interest in doing weddings now, that I am going to charge per hour with a 3 hour min fee?



I have some pictures I did if you would like to see :D I love photography too so like seeing other ppls work. do you have a FB page?

That's dirt cheap. I'm starting out charging $1,000 but that's only because I have one wedding under my belt.

You do some great work! Love the colors of the jumping pose!!

I might possibly in the future make a page but I just want to get everything done under my belt before I feel I can start "charging". Like I said I've done weddings, I'll be doing my first engagement next month(for the wedding I'm doing next year) my brother's senior pictures this fall, and throughout the next couple months a whole bunch of babies/kids :D

Only bad part is I'm trying to find the time for all of them rofl.
