Reasonable fee for weddings?


I had a friend ask me to shoot her son's wedding. Aside from some nerves about such an important event - and it being my first stab at it, I think I want to do it. She said they aren't asking anyone else - so it's me or a family member. What is a reasonable fee?

  I am going through all the other threads and am getting all the info I need - so I will not be offended if no one responds to this thread.

  Robert, this is a hard question to awnser, because it depends on your skill level, and where you live. For example, there are pros in big cities that make 20,000$ a wedding. There's also beginers in rural areas, that are making 100-200$ a wedding. There was a thread here, where someone for their first wedding, was just going to charge for prints. What he did, was charged the couple 25$ an image, and then put them on a cd.

  Sorry, just reread my post and realized part of it didn't make sense. So just ignore "was just going to charge for prints. What he did,".

Jerry Frazier   I always say that you should profit about $500, even if you don't know what you are doing.

It's hard work, and does deserve some coin for the effort.

At $500, you are losing money. So, I am using the term profit very loosely. But, still, it's better than nothing.
