Frame a Price

Low-budget shoots usually run from $500 to $1,500. High-end services can cost $2,500 to $100,000 per shoot. “Get three bids from professionals who have had their work published,” Trent recommends. “Ask photographers or their agents for references, and make sure to negotiate your rights for exclusive use of the photos.”

“Ask for a full-day estimate,” adds Marketing Solutions’ Oskin. “Get a list of basic prices and any optional ‘extras’ that may be worthy of discussion. Share your required ‘day spa shot checklist’ with all prospective photographers.” (See Spa Shot Checklist)
