You looking for one or you want to know what to charge?

If you looking for one, just make a posting in Consumers Corner, photographer for ROM wedding needed. you also can find out what are the norm rate this way.

Hope this help.

If you are the one getting married, congrats... =)

IMHO, Always check out the photographer's portfolio first before you decide if the price is reasonable. He may have a reasonable or attrative rates but if does not take pictures to your likings, it might be a waste of the reasonable amount of money and a life time ROM memory.

Different photographers have different style of shooting... :D

What does your $220 includes?

If it's just shooting time and burn a CD-ROM for you, then it's reasonable on a low side. Excluding prints of course.

It would be better you tell him directly, say you prefer what kind of style, you are the client, free to chose what you want.

A photographer would appreciate honest feedback from people, this will help him/her to adapt the changes or improve in whatever way.

Hope this help.

Actually if he's a friend hor, its even easier to tell him directly. Cos u all know his character well.

Maybe dun make it so curt and condescending loh. Juz joke with him or wad. :D

$220 or $200 sounds ok. Assuming if he only covers the solemnisation part and burns all photos to CD-R without doing hardcopy prints. If u all want full day coverage, morning till nite, den maybe $220 sounds a little low.

Yes, $220 is mid range, with prints.

For Solemnization at ROM (ROM builtding) photography service, what I know is can be range from $128 with prints and album, to $300 with prints and album.

Whatever the price range, not many ROM couples engage professional photography service.
