Frequently Asked Questions

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 Brides.com, 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.

Do I need a wedding photographer?

Technically, you don't need a wedding photographer. Some people prefer a simpler occasion with a few photos taken by friends. However, hiring a wedding photographer ensures that you have professional, high-quality photographs of your wedding that preserve memories for generations.

How long do I need a photographer for my wedding?

Most wedding photographers are hired for eight to 10 hours to set up, travel between venues for the ceremony and reception, and capture events, including the wedding party getting ready, the ceremony, and occasions during the reception. In rare cases, a wedding photographer may be hired for multiple days.

How many photographers do I need for a wedding?

The number of photographers for a wedding is a matter of the organizers' preferences. Sometimes, a couple may feel that having two gives them more coverage of the event, but beware that many photographers include an exclusivity clause in their contracts, so they'll usually arrange a second of their choice.

How many pictures do wedding photographers give?

If you hire a single photographer, they'll usually take 50 images per hour on average with time spent setting up, positioning wedding party members, and transporting equipment to and from venues. The average wedding has between 400 and 800 images total.

What do photographers wear to weddings?

Many photographers choose to match the wedding theme and attendees or wear all black so they don't stand out. If the wedding organizers or couple getting married have specific requests for the photographer's attire, they'll usually do their best to comply.

Do you feed your wedding photographer?

Since most weddings are all-day events and the photographer is expected to be working before, during, and after the festivities, it's polite to make sure an extra plate at the reception is reserved for them. Many photographers do bring their own food to feed themselves over the course of the day.

How do I become a wedding photographer?

Helping a more experienced photographer as their "second" is a good way to learn the industry and get the experience you need to shoot weddings on your own. Many wedding photographers are classically trained and educated in the art of photography before they serve weddings.

What do I need to get started as a wedding photographer?

In terms of physical equipment, all you need to shoot your first wedding is a couple of high-quality lenses, a camera body, a flash setup, and film or memory cards to store images, if you're shooting digital. You'll also want to bring backup equipment and make sure your gear is insured in case anything happens.

How do I become a great wedding photographer?

To develop your skills as a wedding photographer, you need to know your equipment and its capabilities. Seek training from a professional, take courses in photography, or find a mentor to assist — experience is key. Networking is important when you start out. Research, experiment, and practice with lighting and different styles to broaden your skills.

How much do wedding photographers make?

According to Salary.com, the median annual income of a wedding photographer is just under $50,000. Many wedding photographers are independent contractors and either have another part-time profession or take photos of other events, such as baby showers and engagements.
