Wedding Budgeting. Two words that are almost certainly guaranteed to induce tachycardia in brides & grooms the world over. Where do you start?!
Figure out your priorities and budget accordingly.
Is it the dress? Is it car hire? Is it the honeymoon? Only you two as a couple can figure out what should be at the top of this list.
Of course we are biased. ;) We could regale you with all of our personal reasons for why professional photography should be somewhere in the top 3-ish but we will limit ourselves to just a few (please do not think that any mention of other vendors serves to minimise their contribution to the day - all vendors are equally important!):
You will have your wedding images/album long after you have devoured the last remaining slice of frozen wedding cake or sold off the (now) dust-collecting decorations; in other words, you will have a lifetime of tangible memories.
Who you choose - Uncle Bob or a professional - has a huge bearing on how those tangible memories are translated. As a general rule, price is proportional to talent &/or experience. As we stated previously, “A great photographer will make an ‘average’ wedding look stunning. A bad photographer will make a stunning wedding look average... or worse”. Cheap does not necessarily mean value-for-money.
Simply put: if you are going to spend months & months planning such an important day in your life, you may as well record it.
Plan for the event that the budget could be blown due to unforeseen costs.
We have listed the cost of photography with us on our website. If the numbers line up with how your budget looks, we’re happy to meet up and have a chat in person. The next step is to see if we’re a good fit personality-wise. Feel free to contact us here:
