There are few things that can cement a memory as solidly as a picture can. Smells are related feelings... maybe in another article we can investigate how to package those up for a future memory. Today we're discussing visual memories and your wedding day is certainly a memory you want to keep close. Although professional photographers vary in price, skill and availability, here’s a general estimate of what you can expect:
Price: It seems like the world is teeming with amateur photographers with nice cameras nowadays, and you can conceivably find someone who will take pictures for a minimal price, even for free. However, this is probably not advisable. Decent photographers range anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars, depending on where you live and who you pick. A couple words of warning when picking a photographer:
-Photographers don't often post prices on their website. You’ll have to contact them directly.
-Some quotes do not include the “sitting fee”—the fee for taking up the photographer’s time, and it can be surprisingly expensive and is charged even if you don't like any of the pictures.
-Some photographers offer touch-ups for any photos they take. If this is something that is important to you, make sure you find someone experienced in that field. If you don’t want altered photos, be sure to check and let your photographer know.
-Most photographers allow you to own the rights to your pictures. However, a few of them retain the rights and you are essentially buying the right to have a copy of the pictures. You don’t actually own them. Beware! If you want to have access to your pictures years down the road, BE SURE YOU OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE UNTOUCHED ORIGINALS.
Packages: Every photographer does something different. Some of them include engagement pictures, wedding day photos, reception photos, etc. while others only cover part of the time. Just make sure you know what you’re getting up front.
