Varies greatly with experience, weather or not they do it full or part-time. I know hobbyists who charge $300-$500 and professionals, like me (although I don't shoot full-time anymore), who charge $700.00 and give the customer the digital photos on a disk, and otheers who charge $1500- $1800 and pri…nt anywhere from 10 to 30 portraits. Wedding photography is like any other art form there is the low end and the high end. Being a wedding photographer and working for Michaelfrancis Photography for 20yrs in the city of Toronto.I can tell you that prices for wedding photograhy vary from $2,400.00 to $10,000 plus. There are some American wedding photographers working in major cites that charge $20,000.00 plus. I think Herb Ritts was paid 100,000.00 plus to shoot Liz Taylors wedding. (MORE)
There is no average cost as you tend to get what you pay for. Your best option is to come up with a budget and stick to it. Decide what you want, how much you can spend and then find photographers that will work within your budget to get you what you want. I offer three packages and keep it simple. …The only difference between the three is whether you want a small, medium or large album. Some brides like what I have and some don't. If you know what you want going in, you'll be much happier in the end.. (MORE)
There isn't one; it's like asking what the average cost of a wedding dress is. Just realize you get what you pay for. You won't get a $4,000 package for $1,000. You'll get a $1,000 package. The best thing you can do is, prior to setting your photography budget, get prices from a range of studios i…n your area. You may want to ask around town to get the names of the more reputable photographers in terms of quality and service. Your married friends and family can help since they probably used a photographer when they got married. Another great source is other wedding vendors. Ask your florist, dress retailer, and banquet manager. They all talk to lots of brides and probably have heard stories of who's good and who's not. Some photographers will mail or email you information. Others may only give you specifics if you come in to their studio for a meeting. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though. It's VERY good for you to meet your potential photographers and see their work in person before making a final decision. You will want to see at least one sample album showing a complete wedding from start to finish. This is more useful than looking at a bunch of random samples from many weddings because you will see how they tell the entire wedding-day story from start to finish. You also want to meet them to experience their personality. Believe it or not, how well you "mesh" with them should have an impact on your decision. Think about it, your photographer will be very close to you your entire wedding day. So if you're not comfortable with them for some reason, that will show in the images. Once you've gotten information from a number of studios, you can establish your photography budget based on the various products and services that are available, and the level of quality you can afford. Keep in mind that the better and more well-established photographers will nearly always charge more than a hobbyist who only shoots a few weddings a year. This is because the professional has invested in better equipment, back-up equipment, education & training, extra staff (if they bring assistants with them), and years of building their quality and reputation.

There realy is not a percentage that should be used, and not really a set amount. As a wedding photographer and the owner of my own company, I would expect no tip unless I went way out of my way for a family. Generally if the photographer is working for someone else (another photographer, studio, et…c.), then I would tip $50 to $100, maybe as much as $200 if you receive really good service. I would not tip if the photographer is working for himself. If he/she brings an assistant, then tip the assistant. Some people go as far as waiting for the proofs before tipping. This is completely up to you as the client. (MORE)
It all depends. In this industry you get what you pay for. Here in Toronto the average wedding packages range between $2000-$4000 by reputable wedding studios.
The exact amount a wedding photographer makes in a month willdepend upon the company and how much they charge. Manyphotographers will make over $1,000 a month if doing at least fourweddings a month.
Wedding photographers have the opportunity, as well as other wedding professionals, to be a part of a couple's special day. Not only can they tell a story, but they allow the couple to see their day in another light and re-live their wedding day. A photographer provide a time capsule of a unique ev…ent that will last much longer than the memories. For miami wedding photographry, visit http://www.sunnyweddings.com (MORE)
Well recently Ihired Mornington Peninsula Wedding Photographer who did afabulous job and charged me with a very reasonable price.
Some photographers work to a package deal which has a set price and a set amount of time given to the wedding. For about 6hrs of coverage and about 300 photos including a custom-made photo album and two dvds we paid $3000.. Shop around for a photographer. Look at their work and see what package dea…ls they can offer before you commit to one. (MORE)
Before hire any wedding photographers, you need to check his or herphotography experience, skills, reviews on web, portfolio andbehavior and manageable as per the working situation as in weddingseasons, each and every one may very busy on their own work. Youneed to ask and confirm whether they can h…andle this situation ornot. Finally the delivery to get the project on right time. (MORE)
Check your local phone book and search the internet. Best to use recommendations from people you know, if possible.
Before hiring your wedding photographer, make sure you have answered these important questions:. Who will be taking the pictures? Make sure that the photographer whose portfolio you review will be the actual person who takes the pictures at your wedding. The person whose name is on the contract s…hould be the same person you met with. Some contracts claim the studio's right to send any staff photographer to your wedding. Do not sign if you do not agree with this policy.. What is the photographer's primary style? Make sure your photographer knows exactly what you want. Do you want mostly journalistic style or formal poses? Many photographers claim to do both, but in reality, most are better at one or the other, so make sure you know his or her strengths and background to ensure you get the wedding photos you want.. Do you shoot mostly in color, black and white, or both? While some images call for color, other moments are best captured in black and white. Your photographer should have experience with both and be able to customize to meet your needs.. How many rolls do you shoot? Obviously more rolls of film means more wedding photos to choose from, but remember that more rolls usually cost more money. Make sure you review this with your photographer so that he or she has an idea of your expectations.. Are you familiar with the location? Your photographer should be familiar with the ceremony and reception site so that he or she can quickly and efficiently capture the best shots.. What are your references? Call each reference and ask whether or not the person was satisfied with the overall experience and received the desired photos. (MORE)
Unless the wedding photographer is a friend of yours then no, he/she is not invited to the wedding rehearsal dinner. It's generally the bride, groom, their parents, bridesmaids, maid of honor (flower girl or ring bearer if you are having either or both.)
It is entirely up to the bride and groom to invite the photographer to the wedding (most do.) In most cases the bride goes to the photography studio with her Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids along with her mother and have pictures taken. The photographer of course would be at the church and if you are …having your wedding reception at a hall, hotel, etc., then photographer would usually attend to take more pictures. (MORE)
You have to shop around and get different prices. Some photographers have a well known name and they will be more costly, but there are other more common photographic studios that are just as good. Make an appointment with several photographers and ask to see their portfolio (of other weddings.) You… can trim down the cost by requesting certain pictures at the church and at the reception. At the reception the photographer will take the bride, groom, Maid of Honor, bridesmaids, etc., out to an pretty area and take as many pictures as you would like (you are going to have to decide how many pictures you would want.) There will be pictures take of just the bride and groom; then the Maid of Honor with the Bride; Best Man with the groom only and then a group shot of the Bride, Groom, Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids and of course the Best Man and Ushers. Pictures of parents on both sides should be taken with the Bride and Groom. Inside the reception is where you can save the money. The photographer can take a couple of pictures of the Bride and Groom toasting each other; pictures of the head table; cutting of the wedding cake; first dance of the Bride and Groom. Then find a couple of friends or family members that are good at taking pictures and have someone also bring video equipment and have them take the more natural shots of guests; bride and groom, etc. Sit down with your fiance; parents and decide how to trim down the amount of pictures you would like to have taken.

Im not sure but if youre looking for a good one, try Faith Massey. Her website is imagesbyfaith.com she is a professional and specialises in newborns and weddings. She does everything else exelent though.
They are very stressful conditions to work under, there are many reasons for this. One is that you must always be on time, no matter what. Just imagine you are getting married at you always want to have pictures to remember this day by and the photographer doesn't show up, you are going to be angry.… They photographer must deal with this and know they must be there no matter what, rain or shine, sick or well, they have to show up for work. Another thing is that many people may be a little uptight on their wedding day anyway because they want everything to go perfect and according to plan. This may be cause for them to say rude things to the photographer and treat them badly because they think that the pictures will not be good enough. They also have to deal with the fact that if their pictures AREN'T good enough, and the people don't buy them, then they just wasted all that time and more importantly film. If you are using digital you have to replace the camera every few years anyway, so that is costing you money regardless if you are making any or not. Yes you can make money from weddings, but you are taking a risk trying to do this. If you want to get into the business of photography, you are better off going for a job as being a fashion photographer and being paparazzi. Both of these jobs have a income, and are at a MUCH lower risk than being a wedding photographer. (MORE)
If you want a properanswer to your question I'll suggest you to visit the WeddingPhotographer in Mornington Peninsula who clicked my weddingpictures too. Their work was really beautiful.
They take pictures of everyone and everything at the wedding. It is best for you to create a desired short list to give to your photographer so they do not miss those must have shots.
Of course, the amount of money any self-employed photographer earns depends on a number of different factors. If you are just starting out, then you will most likely find yourself making only $500-$700 a wedding . Another factor that determines the salary of a wedding photographer is how many weddi…ngs you actually work at. But let's say that hypothetically, you were to do 35 wedding your first year, and you charge $600 per wedding. Do the math. That would be.. $21,000. With more experience, your reputation will improve, and you can start charging more money per wedding. Hope I was helpful! (MORE)
Two bodies, with one wide, and one tele zoom - preferably fast pro lenses (f/2.8). Having a dedicated body for both wide and tele shots allows for quick adaptation of subject and situation. Each camera should have either a hotshoe or external flash mount with either a diffuser or bounce card. Extra …batteries and memory cards should also be carried. Some photographers will opt for softboxes, umbrellas, backdrops or other studio gear to control lighting in some venues. A recon of the location and attendance at the rehearsal is a must for any photographer wishing to properly plan the shots in advance. (MORE)

Traditional photographs taken for a wedding: .

If you hired the photographer, then no. He or she is an employee and is working. This holds true even if you offer them dinner. If the photographer is your friend and has offered to do this free, that may be his or her present. It certainly is a lot of work, and would constitute a very generous gi…ft. If your photographer is a friend and invited guest and wants to charge you for it, then it depends. If the price has been cut at least in half as a gift, that would constitue a nice gift. If not a substantial discount, then yes, they should give you gift. Having said that, Miss Manners would say that you should not expect a gift from anyone. No one is ever expected to give a gift. The rule is that they only give it to you out of their desire to. So that is that. (MORE)
