Beware the Wedding Photo Mill

Just wanted to pass this along, from Gene Taylor Photography: "It started just a couple of years ago. A photographer gets the idea… 'If I book and wedding, I could stay home and pay somebody to shoot it for me. I’d keep most of the money and not do much work.'

"The concept blossomed. There are several companies (and now a local bridal shop) Doing something similar. They look for a local PWC (person with camera) on Craig’s List willing to shoot a wedding for about $200.  But, the company charges the bride $2000 to $3000 for a wedding package.  The company, with enough advertising and marketing, (and people with cameras willing to work cheap) can book numerous weddings on a weekend. Before long they are raking in the money at the expense of brides who may or may not be getting an experienced and competent wedding photographer."
