Content Policy: 

The Uncorked Project is a community of engaged couples, newlyweds, and wedding experts who share their stories, advice, and wedding woes.
Through this community you can comment, post, discuss, debate, learn, and support other brides and engaged couples who are going through it just like you. While not every discussion may not be for you (you may find some discussions unrelatable or even offensive), no discussion should be used for bullying, defamation, or hate speech.
The Uncorked Project and its community are only what we make of it together, and can only exist if we operate by a shared set of rules. These are platform-wide rules that apply to everyone and these guidelines explain what is and isn’t allowed on Uncorked. Everyone on Uncorked must follow these rules and agree to follow them upon signing up for the membership.
  1. Be Kind and Courteous. 
We’re all in this together to create a welcoming and supportive environment. Treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.
  1. No Bullying or Hate Speech.
It’s unacceptable to attack a person or a discussion based on attributes such as their race, ethnicity, caste, national origin, sex, gender identity, gender presentation, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, age, serious illness, disabilities, or other protected classifications.
  1. Respect Everyone’s Privacy
Being a part of this community requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions are what make Uncorked Project so great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the discussions stay in the discussions. No exceptions.

Featured Question

Q: Is there really a wedding mark up?

Do you feel like the industry charges more “because it’s a wedding” and they know it’s an emotional purchase?

Do companies think that they can charge more for weddings since the bride and groom may be willing to spend more on their dream wedding?

Hey wedding pros – is this higher price tag justified? Why? Do you charge more for your service if it is a wedding?

This is a taboo topic, whispered but not discussed… until now.

    I have been asked this so many times... does the wedding industry inflate prices when they hear it's a wedding?

    Here is my honest answer (as a former wedding photographer)... NO. Did I charge more for a wedding than a 50th birthday party or a family portrait session? Yes, absolutely. I charged A LOT more for a wedding.

    Was I taking advantage of the emotional sell? Absolutely not.

    The main reasons I charged more for a wedding were: the unseen amount of work involved in the 12+ months leading up to the wedding, the skill level needed on the day, the INTENSE pressure to create perfect "portfolio level work" no matter what the reality of the situation- but mostly it is to compensate for the time AFTER the wedding in post production.

    Little known fact about wedding photography - the real job is sitting at a computer editing photos. Photographers spend many hours behind the computer carefully selecting and editing photos. They make adjustments, crop, and adjust colors to ensure each image it's best. Don't forget the time it takes for batching, renaming, importing, exporting and uploading the photos and preparing them for delivery.

    Do you think this justifies why photographers charge more for weddings than for other types of shoots?

    Couldn’t agree more! And on the videography side its an absolute ton of data + editing discipline.

    Its a double sided coin- weddings are extremely high pressure but also high reward when we nail it.

    Our products (photo video) in particular are the only thing that genuinely will last forever . Having fun and ALSO nailing the product is worth the price of entry and frankly more.
