Have to make sure everything is in black and white with the contract. We make it iron clad. Like Mike said, you don't specify, they expect everything and when you don't deliver, issues arise. Our norm is 300. If they want more, we can do this but the price is different.
I use to think be kind and give them a lot more anyway, they love us, raved about the photos, so we will get a lot of jobs from them if we are extra generous. Never got one. Not that we don't get reco's we do, but in this case, she was worried her friends would have just as good or better photos from us and she did not want that! Some of these brides can be crazy. Its a Northeast U.S. thing. One potential client actually reached out to us to confirm we were booked and I said how did you know we were booked? She said the bride that loved us told her we were by stating she would contact us for her to find out if we were open. Go figure. And not that we are that great We hit a homerun her day and everything just worked out perfect so her photos were great.
Listen to your wife.
