Wedding Photographer Cost Guide
How much does a wedding photographer cost?
Wedding photographer prices can vary depending on many factors including your wedding’s location (photographers in big cities tend to cost more than in other areas), the type of services and packages you’re looking for, and your chosen photographer’s experience and level of expertise. In general, wedding photographer prices in EUROPA tend to range between €1,200 and €3,000, with the average wedding photographer cost hovering around €2,000. Your wedding photographer will likely comprise about 12 percent of your overall wedding budget.
What's covered in a wedding photographer’s prices?
When researching wedding photographers, be sure to read the information about their pricing and packages carefully—these tend to differ widely from photographer to photographer and can greatly affect wedding photography pricing. A few items and services to look for include:
Time: Wedding photographer prices typically include between six hours and an unlimited amount of coverage. The more time you’d like your photographer to cover your event, the more you’ll have to pay. Additional hours will cost extra.
Travel: Does your photographer have to travel a long distance to your event? You may have to pay a per-mile charge if he or she is driving to your wedding, or you might have to pay for airfare and accommodations for a destination wedding.
Second Shooters/Staffing: Will your photographer have a second shooter or assistants present? If so, expect to shell out more.
Editing: A large part of your photographer’s time will be spent editing and retouching your wedding photos to make sure they look absolutely amazing.
Images: Your wedding photographer’s cost should include the actual images. Digital files can be provided to you in a variety of ways including in an online gallery and/or via a USB drive.
Print release: Many wedding photography packages include a “print release,” which means that you can use the photos for your own personal use. However, be aware that you will likely not have a full “copyright release,” so you don’t own the photos and can’t sell them, and that your photographer can use your photos for marketing purposes.
Prints: Some photographers include photo prints (or a print credit—money you can put toward purchasing prints) in their wedding photography rates. While you don’t have to purchase your prints through your photographer, they’ll likely come out better if you do.
Albums: Your photographer may offer a wedding album as part of his or her package. You can choose whether you’d like to design and purchase your album through your photographer or do it through another service.
Additional shoots: Some photographers include an engagement shoot in their package (62 percent of couples do a pre-wedding engagement shoot). Other shoots that will likely cost extra include bridal portraits, trash the dress sessions, or coverage of your rehearsal dinner.
There are other, less obvious parts of a wedding photographer’s business that may be included in their package pricing, which include equipment, employees, business expenses, marketing, liability insurance, and more.
Do I need to tip my wedding photographer?
While tips aren’t included in a photographer’s package, they are certainly something you should factor into your wedding photography budget. If your photographer owns his or her business, you don’t need to tip, but if he or she works for a larger company, a $100 to $200 tip is a nice gesture. You should also write an online review for your photographer as an added thank-you.
When should you hire a wedding photographer?
Wedding photographers are usually among the first vendors couples book after they secure their venue. We recommend starting the search for your photographer about 11 months before your big day.
What are the different wedding photography styles?
As you start researching wedding photographers by checking out their work and reading their online reviews, be sure to pinpoint the wedding photography style you like best. There are a few wedding photography styles to choose from, including:
Photojournalism: This wedding photography style is all about telling a story. The photographer will capture candid, emotional moments as opposed to posed portraits.
Traditional: A more formal, classic photography style, traditional wedding photography includes lots of posed shots.
Fine Art: This style is all about dramatic compositions and stylized images. It’s a more modern approach that creates frame-worthy images.
Fashion: If you want images that focus on your attire and look like they belong in a magazine, this is the wedding photography style for you. Think creative backdrops and unique poses.
Vintage: This photography style uses filters and other techniques to give your wedding photos an old-school feel.
Should I get a second shooter for my wedding?
When it comes to the great “one versus two wedding photographers” debate, the “right” answer tends to vary from photographer to photographer, and often depends on the size of your wedding. If you’re having a very intimate and small wedding, having just one photographer present may suffice. However, if you’re hosting a larger wedding with lots of guests, you will likely need a main photographer as well as a second photographer, and perhaps assistants to help with lighting and coordination. 35 percent of wedding photographers include a second shooter in their starting rates, but for many, it's a separate charge.
Having a second shooter can be beneficial in capturing different perspectives and angles throughout the day—and can make your wedding-day timeline run even more smoothly. With two photographers on hand, both your and your future spouse’s getting-ready processes can be photographed at the same time. It’s best to discuss your specific wedding and needs with your photographer to determine the best staffing situation.
Are albums included in a wedding photographer's prices?
Many photographers do include an album in their wedding photography rates. However, some photographers offer it as a separate line item, which can add several hundred dollars to your total. There are indeed other services that allow you to create your own wedding photo album, but it can sometimes be more seamless to go through your own photographer.
Do I have to cover my wedding photographer's travel costs?
If your wedding photographer is based near your wedding location, you likely won’t have to pay any additional travel costs. However, if your photographer will be traveling a significant distance (often over 60 miles), you will likely incur additional travel costs, up to € 2 per mile or more. If your photographer is flying to your wedding destination, you will probably have to pay for his/her airfare and accommodations, as well as an additional travel fee. Again, these wedding photographer prices vary from pro to pro, so be sure to ask your chosen photographer for pricing details before booking.
Do I have to pay for my wedding photographer's meals?
For your wedding vendors who will be present during your actual wedding (your photographer, videographer, DJ, wedding planner, etc.) you will need to provide hot meals. Yes, this is indeed an added expense that you might not have expected to incur, but it’s an important one—vendors who are well-fed and happy will better be able to bring their A-game for your big day! Your wedding caterer is likely accustomed to providing these vendor meals, so be sure to discuss this with them.
How much do engagement photos cost?
We definitely think doing an engagement shoot is worth it, as it helps you and your partner get comfortable in front of the camera and with your photographer before your big day. Oftentimes engagement photo sessions are included in a with the cost of wedding photographers. However, some photographers list these shoots separately, and engagement shoot prices can range from € 150 to over € 600 for a session. These prices usually include a shoot at a location of your choice and an online gallery and/or USB of images. Some photographers allow you to make multiple outfit changes during your shoot, though that may cost extra for others.
When should you take your engagement photos?
Couples usually take engagement photos about three months before their wedding date. You should work with your photographer to determine the best time for your needs. Some couples will adjust their timing to have a warm-weather engagement shoot, but don’t shy away from a winter photo session. We find winter engagement shoots to be among the most intimate, cozy and romantic!
Wedding Videographer Cost Guide
How much does a wedding videographer cost?
Your wedding videographer is an important part of your vendor team. He or she will create a priceless memory of your day that you’ll cherish for years to come—one that includes visuals, sound, and motion. The cost of a wedding videographer does vary widely depending on your pro’s experience and level of expertise, in addition to your wedding’s location. The average cost of a wedding videographer in EUROPA is around €1,700 with most couples spending between €1,000 to €2,500.
What impacts a wedding videographer's prices?
There are a variety of factors that can impact wedding videography prices, some may be obvious and others less so.
Time: The amount of time that your videographer is present at your wedding will greatly impact the cost—most wedding videography packages include the amount of time that your video pro will spend at your wedding. The more time he or she is filming, the more you’re likely to pay. And if you would like your videographer to cover other events, like your rehearsal dinner, that will add more to the cost of your wedding videographer.
Staffing: Your videographer may bring a second shooter and/or an assistant to your wedding. The more staff members present, the higher your wedding videographer’s price is likely to be.
Final Product: What will you receive from your videographer? Most videographers will provide you with edited wedding videos (a highlight reel and an edited wedding film), and some will also provide your raw footage. If you’d like short edited clips for social media or other types of edited clips, that will likely add to your wedding videographer cost.
Extras: Some videographers (about 38 percent) offer drone footage, Super 8 film, extra DVDs or USB drives, or other extras and effects at additional cost.
Travel: If your wedding videographer will be traveling a long distance to be present at your wedding, you’ll likely have to pay for his or her gas mileage, airfare, hotel or other travel charges.
What's included in the cost of a wedding videographer?
You may think that you’re just paying for your final wedding videos, but actually there’s a lot more to wedding videography prices than just the actual videos. Here are the main things that are typically included in a wedding videographer’s cost.
Videography Service: You are paying for your videographer’s time and presence at your event, usually for a previously agreed-upon number of hours. Any extras, like drone footage, or travel expenses can add to this cost as well, as can additional team members.
Post-Production: The editing process is actually the most time-consuming part of creating your wedding video. Sometimes the editing will be done by the same person who filmed your wedding, other times a separate editor will work on your wedding film. Your videographer may also allow you to make a round of edits to your wedding video, but additional edits may cost more.
Final Product: Your wedding videos will likely be provided to you via DVD, Blu-ray, or USB drive. A highlight reel may also be made available via YouTube or Vimeo for easy sharing. If you require additional copies of your wedding DVD, Blu-ray disc, or USB, you will likely incur additional charges. Some videographers add personalized packaging to your final product, which can be a nice touch.
Equipment: Your videographer should have the most up-to-date equipment that is in working order—from high-definition cameras to lighting equipment and more.
Do wedding videographer packages include anything in addition to wedding videos?
Most basic wedding videography packages include a full-length feature wedding video and a highlight reel, sometimes along with the raw footage from your wedding day. However, your wedding videographer can create other videos including save-the-date videos, reception introduction videos, and a photo slideshow or montage for your rehearsal dinner. Of course, these “extra” videos will add to the cost of a wedding videographer, but they can make a great (and creative!) addition to your wedding. Your wedding videographer may also be able to cut video snippets ideal for sharing on social media.
When should I hire a wedding videographer?
We recommend hiring your wedding videographer at least eight months before your wedding date, as these pros tend to book up quickly. Start the research process by reading online reviews of vendors in your area, and viewing their work. Once you’ve narrowed down the list of videographers you’re interested in, reach out and set up meetings with a few.
What questions should I ask a wedding videographer before hiring?
It’s important to find a videographer whose work you love and who is within budget, as well as a professional whom you feel comfortable with. You’re going to be spending a lot of time with your videographer, so he or she should have a personality you love! Here are a few questions that are important to ask a wedding videographer before hiring:
How would you describe your videography style?
Can I choose music for my wedding films?
Have you worked with my photographer before?
How many weddings have you filmed? How many weddings will you film this year?
When will I receive my finished, edited wedding video?
Have you shot at my venue before?
Can you describe your editing process? Do I get any input into the final product?
Can you share your wedding packages list and wedding video cost?
Can I see a finished wedding video that you created for another couple?
Do you typically bring a second shooter or assistant to weddings?
Do I have to tip my wedding videographer?
Wedding vendor tips are an important cost to factor into your wedding day budget. If your wedding videographer owns his or her own business, you do not have to tip him or her. However, if he or she works for a larger company, you may tip between € 100 to € 200 as a thank-you for exceptional service. We also recommend writing your wedding videographer an online review as an additional thank-you.
How can I save money on my wedding videographer?
We highly recommend hiring an experienced wedding videographer for your wedding (as opposed to a friend or family member)—and yes, that does cost money. However, there are ways to save some cash without sacrificing having an awesome wedding video:
Cut the time: As mentioned, the more time your wedding videographer is filming at your wedding, the more you’ll pay. To save money, you can have your videographer skip the pre-wedding getting ready process, or leave halfway through your reception. A four-hour videography package will certainly cost less than a 12-hour one. Some videographers can shoot your ceremony only if you prefer. You can adjust your wedding timeline to make sure your videographer doesn’t miss the important moments like special dances or toasts.
Don’t ask for extras: Extras like drone footage or Super 8 film will add to your wedding videographer’s prices. Keep your wedding video simple, with minimal effects to keep costs down—and don’t go overboard making revisions to the final product.
Ask for raw footage: The editing process tends to be the most time-consuming—and therefore, the costliest. Your videographer may be willing to film your wedding and simply give you the raw footage rather than editing it into a final wedding film or highlights reel. You may choose to have this footage edited later on, or not.
