How much does a wedding photographer cost?

We’ve found that when it comes to wedding photographers, couples are wanting someone who can give direction for them so they can achieve the best pictures, rather than just taking random photos as they go. This includes directions for the best ‘candid’ photography as well. This is a big difference in the skill set of a wedding photographer who has done a lot of weddings before compared to an amateur.

Especially as over the last few years, most couples prefer to capture candid wedding photos, with 63% of all couples looking for candid and natural images for their weddings. Another 33% look for a mixture of candid images and some posed images that they don’t want to miss.

Couples feel suppliers in the photography industry have excelled at engaging, supporting pre-wedding and including engagement shoots. They also like it when there are no hidden costs or fees and everything is clear from the initial inquiry, as well as when they treat wedding parties as equals, no matter what numbers they are working with.

There are also plenty of different uses for technology that you can incorporate into your wedding day, with drone photos becoming more and more popular for that unique element.
