The following is a long article about my research into the average price of wedding photography in Toronto and the GTA.

It contains some inferred insights into charm pricing, the difference pricing page titles make (should you call it Investment or Packages?), and how, on average, photographers charging in the $2,000-4,999 price bracket all cost about the same.

My first job was—actually, let’s not talk about my first job. My second job was working as a cashier and fry cook at McDonald’s. I was paid $6.65 per hour—the minimum wage in Saskatchewan at the time—and told that we could not accept tips no matter how much a customer insisted. An incredibly small number of customers brought it up, and fewer pushed it. Despite that, I specifically recall one customer who firmly insisted that I accept his money (it was a dime), which he offered after I made him a fresh batch of fries. After he had left, I pushed the coin over the counter and let it drop to the floor. (Our tills were counted at the end of each shift, and I didn’t want to ring up too high.) I haven’t been tipped since, and I do not accept tips as a wedding photographer. However, I was surprised by the number of my peers in the wedding industry who either expect gratuities or actively welcome them. Let’s analyse tipping wedding photographers and other wedding service providers.
