    GREAT tips! I love that in your photo of the photo grouping, near the table, you included photos that don’t normally get up on canvas. Shoes, bow tie, bouquet. These shots make the grouping sing.ReplyCancel

    So true! I wish that all brides had this information when they are deciding on their photography budget. I think it would be rather eye opening if they would see this perspective.ReplyCancel

  • Jackie McKeeverFebruary 24, 2014 - 5:52 PM

    What about all the ‘general’ business costs? Telephone, internet, transport, accountant, premises, electricity …….ReplyCancel

  • Tracie Howe PhotographyFebruary 24, 2014 - 6:26 PM

    Thanks for this! So many couples don’t know this and then they end up regretting it when they don’t spend enough. Yes, some photographers are cheaper, but there is a reason. Usually inexperience unfortunately. ReplyCancel

  • Mary WhiteFebruary 24, 2014 - 6:28 PM

    That is so very true. When I hear people who have lost their homes say nothing matters if we are all okay…and I wish I felt that way but I would be absolutely devastated if I lost my picture albums, the pictures on the walls and the scrapbooking albums I have done…they can’t be replaced either. It would not compare to losing a loved one, no, but saying they don’t matter isn’t possible for me to say.ReplyCancel
