Client: I’m going to propose to my girl this weekend but can’t find an affordable photographer to capture the special moment
Me: Woah! That’s exciting, congratulations !
Client: Thank you! Could you come take pictures for it?
Me: Unfortunately, I won’t be able to book a flight this last minute.
Client: But for me, you’d make me a deal, right?
Several months later, another client who said my pricing ‘wasn’t too bad’ realizes they ‘don’t have a budget that can afford much‘ after requesting full coverage & stylized edits of an entire wedding weekend. The previous client reappears.
Client: That’s messed up. How much were you charging them anyway?
Me: My hourly rate is $$$
Client: That’s not too bad. How much for me?
Me: It’s doesn’t change
You’ve got to be fricken kidding me! Prices will be doubling after having to deal with these two.
