Ok here's my situation. I am getting married in April 2011. My girl and I are paying for the wedding ourselves and have a really strict budget. I am finding that Photographers that we like are in the $3,000 range but our budget is about $2,100 at most. Since I have expirence in photography, and have done one wedding myself, I was thinking about doing the after work myself but have the photog do the picture work. I know most of their profit comes from albums and such, but all i really need to the full res proofs and i can do the rest myself. What do you think will be a photographers attitude if i was to present something like this? I would basically ask them for a price on what they would charge to take the pictures, rather then a package price. How much cheaper do you think it would come out if they were to agree?
