With all the buzz about the “Royal Wedding” I got to wondering what William and Kate were thinking; they didn’t hire us to shoot their wedding. I am sure that my dad and mom could do as good a job as any photojournalistic wedding photographer they could find. So, I laid on my dad’s pillow a little longer than usual thinking about this and trying to figure it out.
Is it because we are commoners? Nah, that can’t be it because we used to have a Land Rover, and I think it would be fun to have a walk-about for some grouse.
Is it because I don’t bark with a sophisticated British accent…well maybe but I doubt it.
Hmmm…what could it be?
The cost of the wedding is fascinating to me. The price is estimated to be $32 million! Did you know that the cost of the cake is $80,000 (that is 290 years of dog food)? I wonder if I would like a bite of an $80,000 cake? Would it taste good? Could I eat the whole thing or would it make me sick? I have been told I don’t make the best gastrointestinal decisions.
Kate’s gown is $434,000…it better be pretty (1,502 years of dog food)! The flowers are $800,000. Woof, that’s a lot don’t you think?
Wait a minute…could it possibly be? I think I’ve figured it out. Real Deal Wedding Photography’s basic package is only $1200 and it’s a really good price. BUT, those Royals want people who are way overpriced therefore we don’t fit the bill. I wish I could talk because I would tell them that hiring an affordable wedding photographer is the smart way to go. They seem to think that overpriced = better quality…silly Royals.
I had my heart set on sniffing some Corgi, but we will just have to watch the wedding on TV like the rest of the world. As for us, we will be quite happy doing a really good job at a really affordable price. We make our couples feel like royalty!
