If you are searching for a wedding photographer for your wedding you probably already know that its one of the most important elements after the ceremony venue, reception venue and your dress.
Yes it is kind of serious purchase as more weddings hire a pro than weddings that just engage a relative or friend with “a great camera” don’t forget though a camera is only as good as the person behind it just like a guitar or any instrument is as good as its musician.
Good photography is an investment in years to come whereas flowers, alcohol and food will disappear at your wedding by midnight. Photos will be a part of your life history and keepsake for generations so book a professional whose work you truly (excuse the pun) click with.
If you’ve already started researching in professional wedding photography in Sydney you’ve probably asked yourself why are the good photographers so expensive ? Sydney wedding photography prices can vary greatly from anywhere from under $1000 up to $15,000, at Studio Zanetti we are in the mid wedding photography price range and are on the website which can be viewed HERE
So here is a breakdown of just why a photographer who has a good reputation charges and whats really involved when you book a professional.
Firstly, decent equipment costs thousands of dollars, you then have a full day that your photographer is with you and they are generating ideas, directing the shoot, keeping an eye on the time for you so you can relax and enjoy your wedding day and photo session. Editing a wedding then takes around 6-10 hours, on top of that you have probably several face to face meetings, emailing each other and time they spend generally getting your wedding photography planned and organised and the album design process and the time it takes hasn’t even begun yet.
As much as wedding clients sometimes think a wedding photographer only works on weekends is a total misconception, however there is allot of photographers who do this part time and have a real day job as well. With this lot you’d be lucky to get any before or after wedding service.
A full time professional photographer in Sydney is also covered by public liability insurance and also safeguards your images after the wedding day has finished.
In summary cut back on some costs in your wedding that aren’t that important and put that money into a great investment like your photography When you invest good money into a reputable photographer, you not only get experience, but someone with an eye for detail and a way with people that brings out the best in couples. someone who operates professionally with the right equipment and insurances, is reflected in what they charge.
Back to Sydney wedding photography prices, many photographers are really just charging the same as what it cost you and your partner to own a smartphone each and those phones only last a couple of years at most compared to photos that last generations.
