3 Things To Consider When It Comes To Wedding Photos


Your wedding is something that you will remember for the rest of your life. This event often takes months of planning and is a wonderful way to bring friends and family together in order to celebrate your marriage. Documenting this event is very important, and that is why choosing the right wedding photographer is a must. You'll look at these photos for years to come, so it's important to make sure that they are what you want. Here are three things that you should consider when it comes to photos of your wedding.

What Do You Want Photos Of?

The first thing to consider when it comes to your wedding photos is what you want photos of. Chances are high that you will need multiple photo sessions to fully document this time in your life. Before your wedding, you may want an engagement session. Many couples choose to have their rehearsal dinner photographed, as well as other events that happen in the days before the wedding. Of course, you will want your wedding ceremony and reception photographed. It's important to discuss what you want to have photographed with your wedding photographer. 

The Cost

When it comes to your wedding, your budget is likely going to be a key concern. Weddings can be pricey and often cost thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars. Wedding photography can make up a surprisingly large portion of your wedding budget. Budget wedding photographers typically charge around $1,000. Mid-range wedding photography will typically cost between $1,000 and $3,000. Upscale wedding photography starts around $3,000 to $5,000 on average, while luxury wedding photographers charge between $5,000 and more than $10,000. When it comes to your wedding photos, it's important to carefully consider your needs and your budget carefully.

Getting Your Photos Takes Time

Another thing to consider when it comes to your wedding photos is how long it will take before you get the finished product. Sorting through the photos and editing them takes time. It's important to discuss this estimated timeline with your wedding photographer when you hire them. Often, photographers will send you a handful of photos a few days after your wedding and then the final full suite of photos later on. On average, it can take anywhere from 3 to 12 weeks to get your wedding photos.

When it comes to wedding photos, there are a few things to consider. First, it's important to discuss what you want to have photographed and also what type of photos you are looking for. Your budget is also a key consideration. Wedding photos can cost thousands of dollars. Getting your photos back also takes time.

The Ocean and Photography: My Two Loves Combined

Ever since my parents allowed me to snap a few photos on their camera on vacation when I was a young child, I have loved photography. While we lived in the Midwest, I became hooked on taking photographs of the ocean and boats when we visited the Florida coast during one of our trips together. I found that just being near the ocean really made me happy, and after we returned home, I was able to "take the ocean with me" to experience that same feeling by taking photos of it. Being near the ocean is so calming and uplifting, but most people don't live near the coasts and don't get to experience its beauty every day. I now live by the ocean, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips about how you can best photograph the things you love.
