We all know the costs of living are rising, from taxes to electricity and more. Planning your wedding is very time consuming trying to fit everything you want into your budget. Experienced wedding photographers recognize all the work that goes into your wedding. This is why it’s very important for me as a wedding photographer to understand this. This is your special day and sweat and tears went into planning your day. There are many costs associated with planning a wedding and costs for everything run the gamut.
Sometimes the most expensive package does not mean you get the best service or product and the reverse is true as well. I always get asked what the costs are for the average wedding and again quite frankly the costs are all over the map depending on the simplicity or extravagance of the wedding day. What I can tell you is that photography is only a very small part of the overall costs. It is by far not the most expensive cost. Investing in a talented wedding photographer will provide you with a lifetime of memories when all the other services and products purchased are long gone.
I would strongly advise you not to scrimp on your wedding photographer. I support the do-it-yourself wedding and doing as much as you can, but as I have mentioned your photographs should be considered a treasure forever and should be left to an expert. The Knot who conducted a U.S. survey of 16,000 brides in 2014 shows the average costs of a wedding.
