Understanding your investment.
Did you know that a photographer will spend an average of 40 to 50hrs working on each individual wedding? That’s right 40 to 50 hours! Believe it or not, taking the pictures on your wedding day is probably one of the shortest things on the “to do” list, it’s by far the most important but not the longest. Included in those 40 to 50 hours are things like: Planning, Itinerary design, travel, meeting with clients, emails, invoicing, photographing the actual event, culling through images, image processing, uploading images, archiving, photoshopping, blogging, social media sharing, administrative tasks, print ordering, album designing and more. For every hour of actual shooting time on a wedding, a photographer may estimate about four hours of post processing work (uploading, backup, culling, processing etc). So, if a photographer shot a 7 hour wedding, they may leave the wedding day with approximately 28 hours of work ahead of them. This doesn’t include e-mails, consultations, album design, album edits, equipment preparation and much more.
Now that you’ve seen the hours, ask yourself this: How much do you expect to be paid for 40 to 50 hours or more of work? Add on top of that the cost of the photographer’s expertise, artistic perspective and experience. You also want to consider the cost of the professional products they are offering, their professional affiliations, their insurance (such as Public liability), their travel on the day and photography equipment (like cameras, flashes, lenses, tripods, memory cards, computers & hard drives). If you expect your photographer to arrive at your wedding with a professional camera kit and backups (sometimes totaling between $10,000 – $20,000 worth of equipment) should you not be expecting to pay a professional price?
The truth of the matter is every photographer has their own reasons for their prices. They can charge whatever they feel their craft, their products and their time are worth. Our simple aim is to inform you, the engaged couple, of the number one reason why wedding photography costs what it does, TIME. So when you allocate your photography budget and start to look at photographer’s prices keep in mind that all that time as well as their expertise, eye and their artistic perspective is what you are really paying for when you hire them.
