The average cost of a wedding photographer… 

The average price of hiring a wedding photographer in the UK is between £1100 and £1400 for full day digital coverage including images. 

How to choose your wedding photographer…

A common mindset that is very easy to fall into is “price equals quality”. Just because somebody charges half as much does not necessarily mean their quality or service is lesser than somebody who charges more. 

Why do wedding photographers charge so much?

Art is subjective, every photographer values his or her work differently but I’m guessing thats not the answer you are after. Here are a few variables that contribute to how much a wedding photographer usually charges:

Their education, training, professional equipment, insurance, redundancy equipment, upkeep, backup, storage, advertising, time spent responding to clients, meeting, photographing the wedding!, processing images, fullfilling orders, quality control, working with accountant and lawyers, writing up contracts, website design, networking with other vendors… 

OK so… I’m strugling to list more things here but you get the idea! its mostly down to the amount of time each wedding takes if I’m honest (and the fact we want to do this full time).

Do you offer an engagement session or photoshoot?

I do, every client that books my full day package receives a free pre-wedding photoshoot.

Final thoughts…

if you can’t decide who’s photos you like more, go with the personality type you can get along with more on the day. Wedding photographers are the only vender that will be with you the entire day.
