Actually all photographers in all fields charge different prices, as do painters, sculptures, and others in the art field. Yes, photographers are artists, at least if you consider us to be. And because art is in the eye of the beholder, it is the beholder that sets the prices. If you (the bride) do not see any difference in the work of 2 photographers, you would be foolish to choose the more expensive one. From our point of view, we charge what we feel we are worth and what the market will bear.
It sounds crass, but if we don’t get any work, we will lower our price and if we are turning down work, we will raise our price. By and large, the wedding business is just like ebay.
