    So I learned somethings over the years:
    -not to pre-judge the work by the camera used.
    -the repute of the photographer far outweighs the equipment
    -kit lens are never used
    -cheap is good only if you know the photographer (he gives you discount)
    -expensive need not produce that much better results.
    -spend what you can afford. (if the work turns out bad, blame the photographer; if you under-spend, then you will blame yourself too)
    Great points.

    Cheap deal does not means good deal.

    Cheap and good deal does not comes often, there's often a catch.

    Expensive does not always mean good deal, but it could mean a great deal.

    Expensive could mean the law of diminishing returns set in, but that seldom matter to high end clients who can afford.

    The point is do not skimp on areas that you definitely can afford and dont short change yourself and your beautiful wife.

    After the deal is done, it's too late to cry over spilled milk.

    To the lousy photographer, it's just another wedding he messed up while earning cheap dollars. To the wedding couple it's their wedding photos for the rest of their life.

    Some money cannot save one. For the decades to come, when there is some unhappiness, the wife will bring this up everytime...

    Well Said....

    I have from time to time, people who charge cheap and screw up and PM me for help...

    What can I say?

    How come, people sometime think that my help should come whenever they need it... it doesn't... I try to help, but only for those who truly need help...

    Come back to Cheapo photography buyer... I have seen a lot in the last 4.5 years. I often had to go and shoot a newborn on short notice because the last photographer did nothing but unsatisfactory job. Client ask for quote and unwilling to pay for the price, well, they end up paying me and the other person who screw up the job... u go figure.

    If you charge, make sure you charge according to your "deliverables" and don't use someone else's price list and minus or plus a percentage then call it your own.


    Regards,

    If the couple cannot afford expensive package, they just need to lower their expectation.

    sorry may i just check what is considered cheap, mid-tier and high end and beyond?

    All talk & no show only. So what is cheap, so what is poor quality here? So what if it is cheap? Like food, hawkers fare can be cheap & delicious, even if it may not be those served by famous chef in expensive high class restaurants. Different people have different expectations imo.

    With a dslr & some skills, one should be able to take some nice, decent photos of any event, although these may not be considered as professional, high society, artistic kind. I suspect to many people, particularly the ordinary folks who are less well off, photography is just to record an event for memories sake. It is not for "showing off" & is not their most important, urgent priority & therefore they dont want to spend too much time or money on it.
