Wouldnt mind some advice and to see what people think about this situation.
I have a couple who wants me to photograph their wedding. They first contacted me a year ago and since I knew them 10 years ago they wanted a 'mates rate'quote. Well I didnt really know them back then but they wanted to pay cash so fair enough I dropped £50 off the total back then.
They asked a lot of questions and so on over the course of a few months but nothing had been paid and I had not taking any booking fees. I went to the US for three months and when I got back emailed them again and asked if they were still interested in me doing their wedding. They really wanted me to do it so I got updated information and forwarded a new quote to them back in Feb of this year.
I got an email back with my original quote saying that they wanted the price I had put in May 2010 and that if I could split the time into two as they didnt weant me to be there while they are eating.
I sent an email back to them explaining the increase of cost and that me stopping for an hour or two wouldnt be cost effective for me but I was wondering what other people think.
Basic short version, I quoted back in May 2010, no booking fee paid, client contacted again in Feb 2011 with new quote. Client wants old quote and time split into two as they dont want to pay me while they eat.
Thanks in advance
