@ orangutan: food is necessary, but not a wedding fotographer.
If some pay 3k or 11k (hello dear Mr. Suprapon!), so there will be some who take that.
If you not willing to pay so much, so what?
I never took more than €1000, but this was years ago.
Another observation: as strange it may sound: if you take less, youre work is less appriciated.
Merry X- mas from Austria!
