1Wedding Photography Pricing

When looking for photography services, for whichever occasion; weddings, graduation ceremonies, corporate photo shoots and the likes, one of the main areas that everyone spends a considerable amount of time is pricing.

 

What are the factors to consider when comparing photography service prices in London?

Of course, every photographer prices their work differently based on a large number of things.

 

The most sought after photographers will most likely base their price on one, several or all of the following factors:

 

- Experience
- Expertise
- Type of equipment
- Profile
- Quality of work and so on

 

You, as the customer, will want to go with the best and yet most affordable option you can find.

Hence the question, what are the factors to consider when comparing photography service prices in London?

In the next section we'll consider some things that you should look at before settling on any given quotation.

2Wedding Photographer Costs

1. Past Work

 

Before you hire a professional photographer, the very first test they will have to pass will be pegged on the kind of portfolio they have.

When you look at their past work, does the quality strike you as being worth the asking price?

Is the quality akin to what you are looking for?

The kind of work a photographer has done in the past is indicative of the kind of quality they are accustomed to producing.

This is quite frankly the kind of quality you can expect to get should you hire them. For that matter, you should decide if the quality of their work is worth the price you will have to pay.

 

2. Your Personal Budget

One of the core reasons as to why you are comparing prices in the first place is because you have a budget.

Everyone has a budget, only the scale differs. You will need to find a photographer that falls within your set budget all the while meeting your required quality standards.

Although, when it comes to picking a photographer based on your budget, if you do not have too much money to spend in this venture, something will have to give.

Chances are that you might have to compromise on the quality of photography.

 

3. The Photographers Reputation

You are far better off picking a slightly more expensive photographer who is reliable than choosing an affordable one who almost never delivers what is promised.

You should try to verify with friends, relatives, online reviews and references whether or not your short listed photographers are reliable.

You do not want to be stuck without a photographer on the big day just because you went for a cheap photographer who almost never shows up for their booked shoots.

Reputation matters a lot and it is one of the main factors that drive up quoted prices.

4. The Photographers Expertise and Profile

 

It is acceptable that high profile, highly professional photographers will charge more for their time and work. This is mostly because they are proven individuals who need not introduction and who can be trusted to always produce high quality, professional work. This is one of the main factors that determine how much a photographer charges. Mostly because they are constantly booked, high profile photographer have very limited time, which makes their commitment that much more expensive. If you are going to be looking for an expert in the field, you can expect to pay a little more than you normally would your average neighbourhood photographer.

 

5. The Kind Of Shoot You Want

 

Wedding shoots are going to be more expensive than your average family portrait; a family picnic shoot will cost much less than a corporate photography session and head-shots are more expensive than a simple body shot.

These are some of the factors you need to have thought about when shopping around for photography service prices in the UK.

You need to understand that there are some photography sessions that are going to cost more than others, it all depends on which one you need the photographer for on that particular day.

 

Finding the perfect photographer for your special event is one of the most important aspects of immortalizing that event.

When it comes to pricing, you want to find a photographer who offers exactly what you are looking for at a very reasonable price. All it takes is knowing what you want, some looking around and a little negotiation.
