Hey there friends!

Just letting you all know that I will be moving to the US on Q1 2013.
Living in the caribbean, my prices are "considerably" low to what you guys normally charge in the US.

I started working on my 2013 pricing based on US wedding photographers prize.
Does anybody know the range of wedding photography pricing on the Florida area? especially Miami.

Take a look at my portfolio if you can, and let me know if im 'good to go'. And in what price range I should get settled to start with.

Thank you all :D

I'm a long way from you, but your website seems pretty slow, mostly because it's flash based. If it cached the next image it'd be ok, but maybe it's time for an overhaul.

I'd put your skill level at competent professional, but with plenty to learn. Google for photographers, find prices, put yourself a little below average IMHO.

i'm with Tim, even as a photographer looking at other photogs work i want to see the pictures IMMEDIATELY. I understand we spend so much time on our own websites but shopping brides want to see two things.

1.) how expensive are they
and 2.) how good are they?

having your images load rapid fast will definitely help them go quickly through your site. Think, they are probably looking at 10-20 different photographers for their big day, so make it easy on em ;)

here's ours, and if you click the main picture notice how fast it is to move to the next : http://bluemartiniphot​ography.com/#/wedding-photography/ (external link)

where the bride is supported on the back of the groom, the bride is looking at the camera;
in my humble point of view is magical.

The range? I guarantee you can get a wedding photographer in Miami for $500 and one for $10,000. And then everything in between. Pricing really doesn't differ that much from one area to another, and neither does the range of quality.

I'd say do some research and Google "Miami Wedding Photographer" and look at the top 20-25 results. Look at their quality and pricing and how busy they seem to be and how they compare to you. Then price a little under since you are new to the market, but don't horribly undercut so that you piss off your fellow photographers. You never know when they can help you out. Basically, do some market research.
