    I've seen people pay much more for much worse.

    Get it encased in acrylic and hang it on your wall.

    photography is a service, not a product.

    wow they got a bargain

    not every day someone can pick up a new photographer for so cheap and get pretty good results

    my one friend is skimming $2k photographers for his wedding next summer, and i think yours are better than their fail

    I didn't really have time, nor did I think about it in all honesty. I had 30 minutes to set up and shoot all the formals, then 15 minutes to shoot those outdoor shots.

    Lol, thanks. Since I had never done a wedding before, even as a second, I offered to do it for free just for the experience and to build my portfolio. Bride was also a friend of a friend and they paid for the entire wedding themselves so their budget was small. They offered to pay and I just asked for money to rent the 70-200 and gas.

    It's usually not a good thing...at least depending on what you're doing.

    $300 is very cheap for a wedding, or at least a traditional wedding.

    Hell, I was paid $250 for a birthday party and slideshow a couple weeks ago.
