Wedding photography

Who knew photographers and their packages would cost so much? While I’m not one for the whole in-your-face videographer aspect, I really want a photographer and a pretty wedding album. Flush-mount and all.

Right now I’m pricing some folks who take a photojournalistic approach, and the rates for coverage and the album seem to range from $2500 to $3500. Seems very high, because how much could an album possibly cost to make? And what’s the hourly rate factored in there? If you say 8 hours of coverage at $200/hour, that’s “only” $1600. So an album costs $1000-plus?

Surely I’m in the wrong business!
