    They're monsters!! Seems like you get nothing for 500k :/ what a rip.

    hahahaa...then don't charge so much if no one believes you.

    Most of them do more for a little extra.

    I've seen awesome wedding photographers who charge less than 5k...they also wear a tie :)

    Probably one person said that.

    I would wear a tie too if I charged 500k. Even if I don't shoot the reception.

    Is that another 500k!? I bet he tripple double quad prices the enlargements rather than just double the price it costs him.

    If I hired this guy, I'd have to hire a second just to shoot me getting ready (Yes thats important to me, so are candids at the reception)

    I admit he does a nice job, but not worth the price. If these people can afford it sure, but there's 2 Ottawa photographers that are a hellava lot cheaper that I know personally that can do just as well and better.

    Theres one wedding shot I HATE...omg, what a bad idea it was.

    I'm bitter and spiteful today.

    I love the comments
    "Did You Know... That Robin Spencer is a "Master of the Soft Focus Portrait". People often remark that his soft focus portraits "look almost like a painting"."*
    They probably make a few other remarks as well.
    'I've paid $500,000 for a picture and it's out of focus!?!?'
    But I realy love the $250,000 retainer on booking.
    With prices like that he only needs to find two idiots... sorry... clients a year to make a living.

    Sheeesh! Half a mil for a wedding shoot? Crap, I need to charge more for my violin wedding gigs, I'll charge 'only' $100,000 and I'll play the entire day and night. :)

    That's very funny.

    It's quite alarming to think that there's the smallest possibility that those people did actually pay something approaching that kind of money..... nah... can't have happened.

    I would imagine you could get Patrick Lichfield for that kind of money, and he pretty much only does the candid wedding shots - can you spot the celeb in this one:

    I like this:

    "Believe it or not we do get the odd call or email from people telling us that we are priced slightly out of their budget, so we are offering a $35 Discount Coupon towards the purchase of our Two Hour a la carte Wedding Package"

    Gee, that was generous of them. That $35 saving will go far! by the way, thats a 0.0007% saving! Woo.
