Choose the right photographer for your big day!
Let me start by saying your wedding day is one of the biggest events in your life! I truly believe everyone couple deserves beautiful photographs of their big day.
Why do photographer’s packages and prices differ so much?
Prices can start from as little as $500 right up to $25,000! Who can put a price on your memories from the biggest day of your lives?… Only you can.
Couples who value photography as an investment will put aside a larger percentage of their wedding budget to it. What you have to ask yourself is, once the evening is over and you wake up the following morning, what’s left of your memories? All the things that make your big day will fade away as quickly as the flowers will. Then all that remains are your photographs and rings as a reminder of your wedding. This is why it is so important that the photographer you choose can capture your moments of your day the way you want them recorded.
In a market that is over populated by hundreds and thousands of photographers how to you begin to choose the right photographer for your wedding day.
There are three or so groups that make up the industry.
- Part time hobbyist and amateur photographers and colleague students
- New business start ups
- Full time professionals
How do you recognize the different types of photographers?
I have put together some questions to help you decide which type of photographer and risk you’re willing to take. For instance a colleague student would be grateful for a portfolio and to be the main photographer on a wedding day. They will not have top of the range equipment, insurance, let alone back up equipment with their experience being very little. However your get a great deal on the price. But what if something does go wrong? You have to be willing to risk this in order to make big savings on the cost.
