"Do prices typically vary for an off-season or weekday weddings?"

          This is another topic that varies from shooter to shooter. Many feel that they work equally as hard on a Friday in December as they do on a Saturday afternoon in May and they see no reason to discount their services. They save no money by shooting off-peak weddings and anything they deduct from their price is simply money out of their pocket. Others are of the mind that if they already have booked the number of weddings that they're intending to book, picking up an unexpected wedding at a time when they would normally be slow is serendipitous and they are willing to make a little less money. Speaking for myself only, I already book and shoot as much work as I can possibly stand, and usually still book more weddings and shoot them, not wanting to turn anyone away. I am fortunate enough to be among the lucky few who literally would not take any job in the world over the one I have because I truly love what I do and I'm able to provide for my family in the process. I treat each bride as a case-by-case situation, as to whether I'm willing to accept one more wedding onto my plate that year, and, if I feel motivated to discount if price is a breaking point between us. I've certainly booked weddings before with couples that I felt I got along especially well with and looked forward to working with, or who were getting married at a venue that I had long wanted to shoot at. A couple simply needs to tactfully present their case to their potential photographer, and if they do not participate in discounts, that stance should be respected.
