  • Introduction

    Because of the sheer number of weddings that happen each year, wedding photography is a booming industry. Couples engaged to be married should take great care in finding a wedding photographer before their big day that suits their style.

    Many people think all wedding photographers are virtually the same, but this is incorrect. Some photographers prefer unusual arrangements, angles, and uses of light in their images. They may also have unique styles and filters when editing wedding photos. This makes it very important if you're planning on getting married and looking for a photographer to take the time to find one whose style aligns with what you're looking for.
  • What does a wedding photographer do?

    Wedding photographers take pictures of the wedding ceremony, the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and the families of the bride and groom. They also often photograph the major events of the reception and the guests to help preserve memories of the entire affair.

  • What makes a good wedding photographer?

    A good wedding photographer can faithfully recreate special memories, taking care to capture the most important moments of the wedding and reception. They're able to fulfill the requests of the couple getting married and help them choose the best images from the event.

  • How do I pick a wedding photographer?

    Couples can find their wedding photographer by asking friends and family for recommendations or checking out local listings. It's important to review portfolios, pricing, and availability. When you've picked a few that pique your interest, speak to them in person to make sure they're a good fit.

  • What should I ask a wedding photographer?

    Before you make a final decision about your wedding photographer, you'll want to ask several important questions, such as:

    • Can we see your portfolio?
    • How many weddings have you shot?
    • How much do require for a deposit?
    • What packages are available in our price range?
    • What is your editing style?

  • How much does a wedding photographer cost?

    The cost of a wedding photographer depends on various factors, including their experience, photo packages, and the length of time you need them. According to, a wedding photographer can charge anywhere between $1,000 and $10,000 for their services.

  • Why are wedding photographers so expensive?

    A wedding photographer's fee reflects their experience, training, and ability to fulfill your vision and requests. The time needed to complete the process for a single wedding makes a difference as well. For a standard eight to 10 hour wedding, a photographer may spend as much as double that culling and editing photos.
