Wedding Costing by Derek Avery FSWPP

Compare your prices with the ones below.

Are you under pricing yourself.

For the purpose of this article we will use the example of a part time photographer who undertakes approximately 20 weddings a year plus some portraits in the out of season months. His fixed costs can therefore be divided between his weddings and portraiture.

The photographer has a lock up studio which is open three days a week. His wedding packages include a wedding album with a number of 8x8's prints which the client selects from a preview set (which are the prints to be used in the album).

The wedding coverage we are pricing for this example is the:

Designer Collection

30 8x8 prints mounted in a Spicer Delius Album from a selection of 48 pictures taken at the church and reception.
