Choosing a wedding photographer can be stressful, then you have to consider their packages and pricing. Booking your wedding photographer is one of the most important tasks you when planning your wedding, so do your homework and research the cost and prices.

What is the average cost of wedding photography in the UK?

There are many reports and articles talking about the average price of wedding photography in the UK, such as this one from Your Perfect Wedding Photographer. The average cost for a wedding photographer in the UK was around the £1500 mark, slightly down from the previous years. These are averages among wedding photographers all over the country and with varying photography experience.

Why is wedding photography so expensive?

There’s not perfect answer, but what it all comes down to is time and money.

Photographing weddings is time consuming and expensive. Hidden business costs, post wedding editing, emailing back and forth, all of this is on-top of the time you actually spend photographing the wedding day. A full wedding can be anywhere from 30-50 hours of work in total, including editing, meetings and album designing.

Why are wedding photographers so different in price?

There are many variables that influence different photographer’s prices and cost of doing business. Some wedding photographers offer smaller packages, with limited post-processing and products. This really is up to individual photographers to set their prices. Some photographers work full-time and offer more products, which would make them more expensive than someone just starting out, building their portfolio with limited products.

There are many factors than can influence cost that wedding photographers charge:

  • Packages offered by the photographer

  • Length of time they are needed on the day

  • Travel expenses

  • Time of the Week

  • Region or location of wedding.

Is price a good indicator of the quality of a wedding photographer?

Price is not always a good indicator of quality of a wedding photographer, it is just part of the story.

Some wedding photographers could charge a lot in their first few years, but still be relatively new to the industry and technical side of photography. I would research any potential photographer to get an idea of their photography style, cost, personality and such.

How much should I spend on a wedding photographer?

This is ultimately up to you and what your goal and budget are for your wedding. Figure out what your budget is, how important wedding photography is to you and then start researching photographers near you. Ultimately wedding photography prices vary because of skill, experience, demand, popularity and items in the packages.

The most common question I get regarding wedding packages is …“ How many hours of coverage do I need”?

Since most couples have not even gotten to their wedding timeline planning, they do not always have an idea of the number of hours required. I decided early on that all my packages would be event-based, not hourly. 

 It is normal for most couples to book a wedding photographer as second or third vendor, and therefore don’t have enough information to correctly guess how many hours they need. Rather than limiting your photography coverage to exact hours, I base it on the coverage of your wedding days event as it unfolds. This will prevent you from having to try to squeeze all of your wedding day timeline into a hourly package, which might cost you overtime and stress.

By offering custom packages geared towards events this allows you to choose the correct package for your needs.  This will reduce any stress that might come with worrying about your wedding budget and will allow you to relax and enjoy your day!

I’d love to hear from you!
