- Wedding: June 2012
I am the happiest girl on Earth right now because my Fiance and I just saved hundreds!
I have an old friend from high school (ex high school sweethearts pal) and he just started his own photography company. I went to him and asked him what his prices are and he quoted me for $800. I didn’t think that was bad at all for an engagement session and all day wedding. He has been photographng for years for a company and just started out on his own so I was more than happy to help since him and I have always got along well.
Well he called me today and asked me if I was still looking for a videographer. i told him yes, I hadn’t really been looking but now that you mention it. He told me he had just hired a guy that has a really good video camera with a lot of talent and who would now be apart of his team and asked if I would consider having him. I said sure how much?
He then told me that he wants to use me in his portfoilio for his website and make a book of my wedding to show prospective clients because he just knows I will have amazing pictures. So i said sure. He then told me since I agreed to that, he will do my photography complete with a second shooter to snap candids of people and the videography for $700!!! I flipped and told him that was a GREAT DEAL!!
So now I am saving money AND helping a friend out. This is put me in a great mood today so I thought I would share with you bees!!
