What should i be charging? Anonymous 07/05/14(Sat)21:22 UTC+1 No.2356546 Report

Small time photographer here coming up on his first wedding shoot. I have shot concerts portraits, and other paid events but this is a first wedding and I am not sure on what I should be charging. It is a very small wedding only about 40-50 people are expected and is outdoors at a very small area considering those features what would you guys charge and why? All help is very appreciated (ignore the sample photo)

The more you work, the more you charge.
Meet them before and fix your price according to how long you will stay, do stuff, whatever. Keep in mind that post-processing is heavy (take time), and your trip's duration to the wedding has to be included in the charge.
I'd go for 400 bucks.
>24mm + 18-55 (since you're on APSC) + flash, high ISOs and be there

Also google Ryan Brenizer.
