    Great day, I can't believe that studio can be afforded. Wow, I could do two weddings and retire for life!

    It's funny. But I can't help but think that it's a spoof.

    I'd be willing to bet my next year's income he doesn't steer his real potential clients there and only there.

    But it is something to remember if you need to justify your price no matter what it is. "Ma'am you think i'm expensive just look here."

    Two hours? Oooh...

    Judging by the fairly poor quality of some of the images it's definitely a spoof. Then again if you make something expensive enough people will buy!

    I think this guy has lowered his price. I swear that last time I looked his only package was a cool million.

    Heck, even Gary Fong only charges $20000.

    What a great idea to get visitors to your site... have people tell their friends about the "spoof" wedding... but then offer many legitimate services as well. Brilliant.

    And then on the off chance that some rich idiot actually pays him the fee... well, then, who's the one laughing.

    :thumbsup:

    The first time I saw that site, I figured he was one of those photographers who has shot weddings and became tired of dealing with all the stress involved. Rather than having to turn people down...he just raised his prices to a point which would mean that he wouldn't get many (any) wedding gigs.

    I'm with Jim, it's a clever marketing idea. Have you read his bio?...it's pretty funny as well.

    Actually, that reminds me of a diner where I grew up. The owner thought BLT sandwiches were horrible things, but they were on the menu for $15. (I think a steak was $8). She figured if you're willing to pay that much, I'll make it.
