I heard this this am..Interesting...
The glut of wedding photographers and reduced amount of weddings could lead to a further decline of pricing.

Most wedding photographers have another job and weddings are extra income so I do not think many people will worry.

I heard this, too. I dunno; you never want to see the pie get smaller but it probably doesn't really mean much to the industry. Arguably, some of the decline was driven by the economy. Well, if people will not get married simply because they can't afford the wedding, they weren't likely to drop a few thousand $'s on a photographer anyway.

This was expected, the economy is worse than we actually hear from tv and radio, actually they are calming people down. I just hope it will not get worse than this, people will get married but they will not spend money on expensive flower decoration, expansive cakes that no one is eating anyway or luxurious venues. I think photographers will still have good bookings at least for 2012, not sure about video guys :(

The number of weddings I am scheduled to do next year has declined, but in it's place I got a great full-time photography job elsewhere that will fill the gaps. So... I'm not too worried! Photography is all I do for a living, but this year I am going back to school for a business degree (to help my photography business because I realized there are a lot of gaps in my business know-how) and it turns out you can get a TON of money to go back to college! Seriously, I'm getting about $1,000 a month OVER what I owe for classes and books from various scholarships. Things I couldn't dream about getting 10 years ago when I was actually going to college. Whoda thunk that going to get degree #2 in your late-20s would actually be profitable!

I figured since we're still in the heart of the recession now was a good time to go back and take advantage of everything that's being offered. Then in a 2 years when we are (hopefully) coming out of it I can hop into play with a business degree and a lot more know-how and really rock it! But during this "downtime" I may as well make money wherever I can... and if means getting another college degree... BONUS!
