The complaint or excuse I hear most from people considering hiring professional photographers is that they are "too expensive". Photography prices can be extreme, I can’t deny that. But in most cases, they are entirely justified.

Photography pricing is entirely subjective to each individual photographer, what value they place upon themselves, how much work they are willing to take on, and their own personal beliefs in what constitutes a fair price.
