- Wedding: September 2014
I really love video editing, it’s a hobby of mine. Over the last few years, I’ve done many slideshows for family and friends. I have done them for children’s birthdays, anniversaries, funerals, etc…but my favorite (and the kind I do most often) are wedding slideshows.
This has always been done by close friends and family so I’ve never even thought about compensation. I did one for my best friend last year and I was recently contacted by her Mother-In-Law, asking about my pricing to create one for her daughter who is getting married next year.
I am more than happy to do it, but I absolutely need a little bit of pay because these things take me a good 10-15 hours of work to create, especially if the photos are coming to me in hard copy. I work a pretty crazy job, so this would eat up a couple of weekends for me.
What would be a fair price for something like this? I don’t want to charge a ridiculous amount, but I also want to make it “fair” to the amount of time and energy I’ll be spending.
