Is Wedding Photography really exspensive?


Is Wedding Photography really exspensive?

There is a general belief that wedding photography is expensive, and that wedding photographers service charges are high.

But it is very important for every bride and groom to know the reasons behind the expensiveness of wedding photography; so they won’t have the impression that they are billed unreasonably.

Below are a list of reasons why wedding photographers charge so much. Be aware that the work of a wedding photographer continues even after the end of the wedding. The wedding photographer has other tasks he/she must carry out after the wedding is over, so as to come out with perfect wedding pictures or album. You may think that carrying a camera and pressing the shutter is the main thing photography. That is very untrue. After spending 6-16 hours on your wedding day, the photographer has to spend more hours again (ranging between 20-40 hours depending on your chosen package) editing your wedding photos and giving it perfect touches to make them look awesome. As part of image processing, the photographer checks and make adjustments to each image for colour balance, exposure, composition etc. Moreover, you will meet the photographer many times before and even after the wedding, to agree on various pictures and album to use. Another thing that contributes to the expensiveness of wedding photography is the quality of equipment used. Those equipment used for taking wedding photos are very expensive; after all, you can’t just have an awesome wedding photo with just a point-and-shoot camera. A professional wedding photographer needs the best quality, sophisticated, and professional cameras including equipment (lights, lenses, software, laptops, computers etc.) which worth £5000-10000 or even more. Who will want an amateur to take his or her wedding photos? No one, I guess. Wedding photography is for professionals who know the rudiments of photography. They know when to capture your image and how to process it. For instance, there is only one chance to get the photograph right when the bride is walking down the aisle, you don't get a second chance. That is why you have to pay for the professional skills a professional photographer will apply in taking and printing your photos.

According to John Ruskin (1819-1900), “It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better. There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper. And the people, who consider price alone, are this man’s lawful prey.”
