Wedding Photography Costs

Unfortunately, wedding photography is usually one of the most expensive parts of the wedding budget.

Unfortunately, wedding photography is usually one of the most expensive parts of the wedding budget. It can be up to 20% to 30% of the total costs, depending on the photographer's choice.

The average price seems to be putting Americans to capture your special moments is about $2,000. Keep in mind this is an average and that is with about 150 to 200 guests for the wedding. Your wedding expenses may be more or less depending on how much you want to take the same day.

Wedding photographers usually have different packages that you can choose from, with varying cost of each package. It's a good idea to go through each package and their corresponding costs, so you can choose a package for you. If possible, ask to see pictures of past clients, if the photographer still has them.

It's a good idea to check with local owners, where you will be having your wedding; they will usually have contact information on the photographers and the prices that they have worked with in the past.

When researching various wedding photography prices, make sure you take detailed information about each package. Some photographers may charge for an hourly rate and others may have a flat rate per package. When searching for a wedding photographer, you may come across someone's work you really like, but you’re not so crazy about their price. In this case, you can have them capture formal moments, such as a religious ceremony and pictures of the family wedding.

The rest of your photos you can have disposable cameras on the tables at the reception and the wedding guests have them. Also, check with your family and friends and let them know you are looking for a photographer for your wedding day. Good referrals can lead to discounted pricing as well.
