You’ll bid a wedding based on your time. You know what your worth by the hour, right? Multiply that by how long your gonna be on this, including post. You’ll get better at calculating this as you go. Taking one on the chin is a great learning experience.
A flat $1k is a fine price to start out with in doing weddings. They’ll be paying the photog more than that and wont get to enjoy a montage. You’ll be learning as you go and can charge more later.
