Presently, I prefer a FLAT RATE and offer individual price quotes instead of packages so customers can pay for what they need and be free from limited options. It just takes a few minutes to understand your needs, location and theme. Estimates are usually free. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Wedding photography is almost never a one-day piece of work, and takes hours of planning and preparing gear for any wedding. One couple may want photos during a one hour ceremony. Another couple may want sunrise to midnight coverage for preparation, ceremony and reception. Both those weddings will take one or more extra days to review, and process. No wedding seems to involve less than a full day and a half when all is said and done. A full day of photography may lead to several days of extra time.
HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS
Please be sure parent and student know what outfits will be brought in advance. Some parents like conservative and some students like hot styles, so don't drop surprises on each other at the last moment. Debates out in the field can eat-away at time, and lost time will cost you extra photos. My price will include a time-frame we need to stay within. Also, try to include more solids than patterns. .
