Seriously behind on processing photos... CONGRATS :) Here is a preview. The whole set will be ready soon. You can click on the images to get a bigger resolution (to get full resolution, email me). The first one is HUGE.
Not related to photography but I thought this was kind of interesting: http://bridepop.com/everything-else/weddings-by-the-numbers-infograph/
Basically, if you want to have a cheap wedding, go to Las Vegas or Los Angeles. I guess it kind of sucks to be a wedding vendor in these areas because of low cost margins. If on the other hand you're a wedding vendor, San Francisco or San Jose may be a cash cow! In fact, people in Northern Cal pay nearly TWICE as much for their weddings as people in Southern Cal. What's up with that? Is it because of all these spoiled rich dot-comers that have too much money to waste? Or is it the fact that there are simply too many wannabe photographers in the Los Angeles area who aspire to shoot movie stars and such? I don't know. I can only guess from the numbers. Anyways, of the total cost of weddings, about 23% of the entire budget is allocated for photography/videography. Whoa!!! That's a whopping $3691 spent on video/photos per wedding! Wow.
