Business of Photography/Videography / Re: The Bride chose my images instead of the photographer, how much should I charge?« on: April 07, 2014, 09:58:31 AM »
The person starting this thread came here with a question, he is new and learning so i think its good that he is finding out what to do. I dont think he knew or thought he was doing something wrong by selling his images. It was his first wedding.
With that being said Weddings are tough hard long work, and their are some clients you should take a pass on. This was clearly one of them. If their only concern is money not the work let them find a family friend to do it for free and get what they deserve. She should have already seen his work when she hired him and knows what she is getting. A working pro should above all things be consistent. You most likely choose this individual to learn from because you liked their work. This bride is clearly playing a game to save money and renegotiate price.
Run like hell from this situation and this bride. You are lucky in that you had an opportunity to learn another aspect of the business. Always have a contract to protect yourself and always get paid up front!! Everyone else does so should you. You have a lot to learn still dont just jump in head first until you understand some of the business aspects.
