    I 100% agree on every item.  Music, flash, money are the big ones.  Photogs on WB will probably complain about these things though.

    I actually liked hearing music on the photographers’ websites!  It’s how I found a lot of the songs I want played at the wedding!

    But I do agree with the cost.  I want to know right away if I can afford them rather than having to waste time to sent them an email and to wait for their response.  It’s also annoying when their site and images take forever to load.  Finally, I also agree with a simple statement on where the photographer is located and where they take their business!

    I voted for all of them except the fifth–I especially agree with not wanting any popups or a really slow site, and pricing!

    I never understood why people don’t share costs. At my old job (daycare) we weren’t allowed to give prices over the phone the whole idea being that once people see the place and how amazing everything is they will want to spend the extra money. Thats just ridiculous, I have X amount of money to spend no more no less (ok I’d be fine with less), all these emails back and forth to find out your are triple what I can pay is just wasting both our time!!!

    omg 100% on ALL of these points. the music drives me nuts, and my biggest pet peeve is the “custom packages” and “we travel” thing – i ended up having all these emails in my inbox of people way out of my price range and could have saved us BOTH alot of time if the info was there upfront.

    and flash doesnt work on my work computer. bleh. lol

    I agreed with all of them. although i dont care that much about the facebook thing. My two biggest pet peeves are music and flash. I HATE FLASH. And it is like industry standard or something. It doesn’t make me think you look more professional, it just annoys the crap out of me. 

    And yes… why not just post pricing right on there? It saves both of us time!

    Lol, I posted a mini-rant about this last week!  I HATE the flash/fancy stuff that takes forever to load on my old school computer, and it drives me nuts to go through the process of calling or emailing someone just to get their prices… It wastes everyone’s time!

    OMG. I just posted something this morning on WB about ‘investments’ on photogs site. I wish they would put their pricing on the site for all to see. That’s the biggest pet peeve I have with them. Fall in love with their pics and then see that they are out of your price range Cry

    @ddw: Oh, this exact list get’s tossed around on all the photography boards all the time! You would think more photographers would listen to it. Imagine that, stubborn big headed artists…. lol (and I say that in the most loving I’m a photographer way: -) I’m only guilty of MAYBE 3… depending on the size of your screen 😉
