We're paying $3,000 for 8 hour coverage, two photographers, personalized USB with print release; high-resolution edited images (500+), and stained heirloom box with 10- 5x7 prints. It also comes along with a complimentary engagement session that runs for about an hour and a half, 2 outfit changes, about 80+ photos of best captured, and travel fee for anything past thirty minutes of local destination. Ours will be about 2 1/2 hours away so I will be paying for that travel fee. I think it's a good deal for their kind of quality work, and they're such a lovely couple too!☺❣
We are paying I believe **** that includes 10 hours, 2 photographers, a photo album (the albums that the photographer designed are beautiful), online gallery, and the engagement photo is being thrown in.
I did my due diligence and while this is on the higher end, one regret or overspending joy I hear from brides and grooms are the photos. Either some regret not spending more for better quality or they were glad they splurged to have a day they'll relive again and again.
I’m paying $2300 for engagement and 6 hrs of wedding. All photos are edited and I will have full printing rights. I liked my photographers editing style. But I also have a friend who paid $1000 and her photos were edited but much simpler style.
I'm from greater Boston and it was HARD to find a photographer we liked for our budget of $3,000 BUT we found one we're so happy with! We're paying $2,950 for 10 hours, 200 prints, USB Drive of all photos, 2nd shooter, and we nixed the engagement session so we could get it under $3000.
$4354 for 9 hours for both photographer and videographer, 12 X 12 60 page album, three 5 X 7 replica parent albums, 2 engagement shoots, 16 X 20 portrait, all proofs on CD, all negatives on CD, unlimited shots, 150 thank you cards, drone, 3 DVDs with menu and chapter selection, we also were selected to win a 2 day 3 night hotel accommodation lol. I am in NYC.
I haven't booked mine yet, but I would like to see some of the responses here. Average I have seen **** in the DC area. I found one I love for #5,500 (engagement shoot, 8 hours, second shooter). Is this too much?!
3800 for 7 or 8 hours plus engagement shoot in the Tampa area but my photographer is from Georgia. So part of the 3800 is a $300 travel fee. Photos were the most important thing to me and a big priority. I wanted to make sure we absolutely loved the photographer and was willing to pay anything under 4500 to get it! Photos and entertainment were the biggest part of my vendor budget after venue and food/drink. Our photographer will cost us more than our florals!
We are paying $1K from a reference/family member who has a connection. He's providing a second photographer on the wedding day and also did our engagement photos. He will be there for the duration of the five hours. We feel so lucky. This is a huge cost in a wedding and we have a costs savings.
You can select the vendor category (Photography) and the city & state where you'll be getting married, and get recent data on average wedding spend! It's really helpful when starting to make your budget and for finding realistic price ranges!
Right now most couples spend between $1,150 - $3,000 on wedding photography!
