What do good wedding photographers charge?
Wedding photographers based in the major cities on the west coast all charge around the same price. You should expect to pay anywhere from $2,395-$7,500 for a day of quality wedding photography. Finish and edited images will be included as well. Also there will be items you may want to include such as fine art wedding albums, prints and engagement sessions.
For me a single wedding usually requires at least 40 hours of work to sort through the images we take at the wedding. This included making colour adjustments, uploading the photos to the proof site, designing the wedding album and more. The best part is shooting the wedding for sure! There is a lot of work the happens behind the scenes as well between the weddings like correspondence between clients answering emails, working out the logistics of the wedding day.

Typical Wedding timeline:
-Allow at least 60 minutes for getting-ready photography.
-60 minutes to 2 hours with your bridal party is ideal. Depending on where the wedding ceremony is taking place locations can be at the venue or if the wedding is taking place in the city finding a favourite place you love to visit can always be a great place to start.
-30-60 minutes for family photos work well depending on the size.
-30-60 minutes for the ceremony should be typical but allow for extra time even if you plan on having a short 15 minute ceremony.
-Cocktail hour – 60 min. This is a great time to slip away and get a quiet moment together.
-60-120 minutes for dinner and toast.
-Plan on 30-60 minutes for first dance. This is when the schedule is usually running a bit behind.
-Dancing. This can be anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours depending on what is planned.
So if your looking for all the key moments to be captured on your wedding day you are looking at 7-9 hours of photography coverage.
