If it was me I'd find out their budget before I started laying it out. There's a huge difference in price depending on size and number of pages.
Which I plan to do.
That's some Confucius sh!t right there.
I didn't mean to offend you in any way. Your post indicated this was your first wedding. Consequently, I would assume you are just learning the ropes of the wedding business. I was also unaware that you had experience creating digital albums. You should charge what you think your time is worth. However, keep in mind that "word of mouth" advertising is probably the best way to build your business. At least that's how my business took off many, many years back. My personal advice is set your fees based on your experience and customer recommendation. You aren't going to be able to make a go of your business if you charge the same rate as photographers with more experience. I wish you all the best as you pursue your career. I"m sure you will do well. Again, my comments and advice were based on experience and not intended to offend you.
No offense taken! I'd rather have all kinds of advice then non at all. I am on the learning the ropes of weddings. While I've done digital albums (family stuff) just not wedding albums.
And I do plan to just that, adjust accordingly per my experience.
I wasn't offended and I apologize if I came across as such.
No worries George, I appreciate the advice
