Tag Archives: Silver Package

Heavy Metal

Gold, silver, and bronze.  Not Olympic medals.  I’m talking about wedding photography.

More exactly, the ‘Gold Package’, the ‘Silver Package’, and, you guessed it, the ‘Bronze Package’ (for cheapskates).

Any wedding photographer who markets their packages in these terms is an unimaginative sheep, just following what countless other unoriginal wedding photographers have done.

Alarm bells ring when I see this ‘Gold’, ‘Silver’, and ‘Bronze’ format.

Why?  Because it shows a lack of imagination and creativity.  And that’s the last thing you want in the photographer capturing your wedding day.

Here’s the only bit of innovation you see from ‘heavy metal’ wedding photographers-  every now and then one of them includes a ‘Platinum Package’ (= more expensive than ‘Gold’).

Under what circumstances is it okay for a heavy metal wedding photographer to get away with this corny phrasing?

– If the wedding album cover is actually made of gold, silver or bronze.
