The photographer charges a premium price, but “isn’t your career worth it?”
You get what you pay for. Right?
Your career may be worth it, but you don’t always get what you pay for.
While we often equate product quality with price, a photographer who charges a premium price doesn’t necessarily provide photos that are better than a photographer who charges much less.
So be careful not to be manipulated into working with a photographer simply because their rates are above the average of other photographers in your area.
In the end, choose a photographer based on the quality of their work and your specific needs.
