Wedding photography pricing
When you’re looking at the cost for your wedding photography, it’s worth keeping in mind that good full time Seattle wedding photographers all charge around the same price.
You should expect to pay anywhere from $2,395 to $7,500 for a day of quality wedding photography. This price reflects the operating expenses of running a freelance business along with time and the final product delivered to the client.
Finished and edited images will also be included in this price. There also might be some items you may want to include in your wedding photography package, such as fine art wedding albums, prints, and engagement sessions.
My wedding photography prices are also based on the amount of time it takes to edit a batch of photographs. For me, a single wedding usually requires at least 40 hours of work to sort through the images we take at the wedding. This work includes making color adjustments, uploading the photos to the proof site, designing the wedding album, and more.
The best part is shooting the wedding for sure! However, there is also a lot of work the happens leading up to the big day. This work might be corresponding between clients, answering emails, or working out the logistics of the wedding day. Your wedding photographer costs will include all of this behind the scenes work.
