Ah, the age old price battle. Marti, long term, what's your ideal number of weddings and quincineras per year?

Marti you're charging Craigslist prices and complaining about budget brides? Now what I've long suspected is all clear.

Whatever Sergio.....another 2 seconds of wisdom from you as expected. Now go back
to playing with yourself moron.

You know NOTHING about my business, a business that I run legally, pay my taxes,
provide quality products in terms of albums and images, provide my clients with
an honest, ethical business experience. But as for you, from your remarks, it shows
what kind of person you aren't.


Wow, that's a bit rough. You've lost my respect right there.

Thats my entry point pricing for a 4 hour shoot and burn. Believe me, I hate it.....but I do this full time and frankly, Im not as good as most of the photographers here. I get what I get.

It's much easier to get 20 clients than 60 clients.
It will only get worse for you dude as clients become more "photo savvy" every year. Listen to the advice you were given or start working on a back up job soon.

And you can't really compare yourself to groupon photographers. Most don't survive a season. at $3h they get for their work it is impossible to make a living. Sergio is an ass,yet perhaps it is the kick you need so you can actually start listening to all the advice you've been given on this board.

The quicker you realize the problem isn't your clients and that it's with you, the better off you're going to be.

If you're not ready to accept that then stop complaining about it on an public forum.

Interesting philosophy.


Sounds like a very realistic philosophy.

Hate to say it, but if you're charging around $1000 for a wedding in California, you can't expect too much from folks.

I mean, maybe a whole lot changes in the 30 miles between OC and Rancho, but that is NOT a price bracket I would want to be in.
