This is all well and good for my paying customers, BUT when friends ask me to shoot their weddings i feel like i should do it for free, but at the same time, i know im worth what i charge.
HELP! I need all and any advice you can give me, do i charge, do i discount? What do you do?
Business is business. You brought the cameras, lenses and flash plus other things therefore, you need a return on your investment. Matt gives good advice above, but it's up to you how much you charge each group. If your friends object to your charges then, suggest they get a quote from a Pro and they will soon come back to you.
