How much does a wedding photographer cost

How much does a wedding photographer cost?

It's a fact that weddings are expensive. Apart from your house and car purchase, the most expensive thing you could ever pay for is your wedding day.

While a decline across the photography industry is predicted in the short term due to COVID-19, there is enormous market potential now that vaccines have become more widely available worldwide. Events have started to resume, and nations are striving to regain normality as soon as possible.

Hitched did a wedding survey of 2,800 couples in 2019 and found the average wedding price in the UK is £31,974.

2018 was only slightly cheaper. The professional photography services industry was crushed by government restrictions on gatherings such as weddings and other events during covid19.

As a rule, you should not be paying any more than 10% of your total wedding costs (excluding the honeymoon). So, for roughly £3,000, you should see a few professional photographers in the price range. Then the fierce competition starts to get your wedding booking. Free album, Free engagement shoot, Free Car, Free holiday if you book in the next several days. You get the picture. Bridebook UK (2022) reports that the average cost of a professional photographer booked for 2022 is £1,200. With 91% of wedding couples opting for a professional photographer over friends or family taking the photographs.

As a photographer, I want to be sure you are choosing me for the right reasons. Let’s face it, we’re in this for the money, But that’s not what I want to be known to my clients for. My wedding prices are very reasonable for the skills and service I provide. Based on several weddings a year, each wedding I photograph will cost me £300 before I start. As a wedding photographer, I am not a photographer who jumps in at the deep end and gives you a great package for free. No. I give you great service at a reasonable price that we can both appreciate.

My top wedding package costs are very reasonable, often including a beautiful USB and a private online gallery of your wedding photos. Yes, it is possible to get a photographer for less than £500. The problem is that you get what you pay for. A wedding photographer is not the same as a regular photographer. I don't photograph pets or babies, etc. That's another skill all on its own.

Absolutely brilliant

We couldn’t recommend Jim enough. He was so friendly and relaxed and made us and our guests feel totally at ease. He captured every special moment, and the quality of the photographs was brilliant. Jim presented our pictures in a beautiful box and even added a personalised touch, which meant so much. Would recommend to anyone looking for a photographer who captures memories.

To me, wedding photography is a specialisation. There are no other professionals that can cover every aspect of the day as a wedding photographer. Undeniably, I have unique skills. But I also have to say that there is a limit to what I can do. I can’t take a million pictures of your day, and I can’t even be everywhere at once.

My style is unique, and people who hire me know that. As a wedding photographer, I do my best to ensure that your wedding day is a special one. Your Wedding Photos Will Be Better Than Your Friends or family taking your photographs.

The style of my personality image

In my experience, I've photographed hundreds of weddings, and I can tell you for sure that my work is better than your friends' or families' photography work. With over 200 weddings photographed, I'm good at what I do.

Photography is my passion. It's what I love. I get paid to do it, but I do it because I love it. I don't just take pictures of pretty people. I take pictures of real people doing real things. I take pictures of you and your family enjoying themselves on your big day. Furthermore, I take pictures of your wedding party in their most acceptable attire and help them look their best.

I know what it takes to make photographing your wedding a success, and I also know what it takes to get the best photos. That's why I ensure that you, the bride, have a photographer who knows what it takes to bring you the best images possible. I am a wedding photographer who is more than a photographer, I'm a Master Photographer.
