As mentioned in a previous post, it is quite difficult to find a reasonably priced wedding photographer. So you can imagine my suspicion when I came across one man who advertised wedding photography for $550. His portfolio looked legit, but then I started thinking. What if he just pulled those photos from another site and called them his own? What if he’s some Starbucks barista trying to make some extra cash? Perhaps he’s a serial killer that gets a thrill out of killing fiscally responsible brides to be. Is he even a real human? I’ll admit that my years of X Files watching did get in the way of reason just a bit, but still, something wasn’t right.
I emailed him to inquire why he was so much cheaper than other photographers and to ask for references. Here is the response:
So basically he was lying when he said he could photograph my wedding for $550. And what did he think, that I would gladly offer him a higher price for his sleazy services? I’m not even sure this guy knows how to use a camera anymore. And, he used the wrong form of the word “to.” Disgraceful.
I’d like to know how other people have dealt with this issue. The truth is out there and so is a reasonably priced wedding photographer.
