The average wedding today here in the US is right around $20,000. While everyone has their own tastes and preference, averages show a couple will spend their money in the following way:
51 percent on Reception, including reception hall, catering, cake and alcohol
10 percent on Photography
8 percent on Videography
9 percent on Ceremony
7 percent on Attire
6 percent on Rings
4 percent on Flowers
3 percent on Music
2 percent on Limo and transportation
So if a bride is planning a $20,000 event, she’s expecting to pay around $2,000 for her photographer at the average point. Some will like photography more, and be willing to bump that figure up, and others will obviously bring that down, going more for the show than the memories.
The important thing to remember here is if you only charge $250 or $500 for your photography, a bride expecting $2000 will wonder “what’s wrong with this photographer?”
We basically need to meet with you to determine pricing. There are so many variables involving one or two photographers, albums, time, actual products delivered (cd’s, DVD’s, books, etc.) that we just can’t list everything.
Our prices go from around $500 to $4500… So, as you would expect there is a wide variation in what we deliver. We want to work with you to get the right fit for your event.
So let’s make an appointment, look at the work, set the date, and work out the details.
I just hate websites where you can’t figure out where the people are.
So we want to make it as easy as possible to find us.
