Picking an affordable Sydney wedding photographer is one of the most important parts of planning your wedding. Without them, you won’t have the beautiful memories of your wedding day to look back on. So it’s important to pick a good one. But how much will a wedding photographer cost you?
A report conducted by Easy Weddings found that the average price Australian couples are willing to pay for wedding photography is $2,952, with couples in Sydney and throughout NSW spent an average of $3,495 on their wedding photographers.
But with so many options out there, how do you pick a good wedding photographer? Here are a few tips on what to look for, and what to ask when you meet with a potential wedding photographer..
- Do you have a particular photo style? Such as light, bright, posed dark, moody documentary style. Make sure you look through their work to make sure you like their style.
- You’ll be spending the whole day with your wedding photographer, so make sure you enjoy their company and get on well with them.
- Make it special – ask potential photographers if they have any idea for personalised photos
- How long will it take to receive your finished wedding photos? Most Sydney photographers will deliver photos in 3 months after your wedding, Some might even provide you with a sneak peak album shortly after your special day
- Check the contract contract for any extras fees, such as vendor meals, travel, parking or photo albums.
- What photos would you like your photographer to capture? Some Sydney wedding photographers offer small, 4 hours packages that cover your ceremony and a short part of your reception only, which can be a very affordable option. But are ‘getting ready’ photos important to you? Would you prefer NOT to have those dirty dancing moments later in the night captured? Most Sydney wedding photographers offer half or full day options as well, and they will be able to suggest an option that will be able to include the moments that are important to you.
