Scott L. says, "Bobby was great to work with! He's very personable and a great photographer. We didn't give Bobby much direction as to what we wanted but he has a great eye and was able to direct us to get some great shots. As we were taking photos it felt like we were in the same pose a lot but once we looked at the photos we realized he used different angles and focuses so they turned out differently. Bobby went out of his way to print and frame a few of the photos he took at the wedding to give to us at the reception later that evening. We love our wedding photos! " Read more

Your Wedding Photography questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much are wedding photographer prices near me?

Wedding photography costs $1,600 to $3,600 on average but often exceeds $4,000 in major cities. Wedding photography prices range from $700 to $10,000, depending on the package, add-ons, location, and number of photographers.

When to book your wedding photographer?

Book your wedding photographer as early as possible, ideally as soon as you choose a date and reserve a venue. The best photographers book events more than 12 months in advance, especially for weddings during the peak season.

What to expect from your wedding photographer?

Before the wedding day

  • Discussion of the photographic style and your needs and wants
  • Contract and initial payment to reserve the date
  • Reviewing the wedding day timeline to ensure you schedule enough time for key photos
  • Engagement photo shoot, if included
  • Rehearsal dinner coverage, if included

On your wedding day

  • Capturing key moments during the getting-ready process, ceremony, and reception
  • Traditional or posed photos of the wedding couple, bridal party, and family
  • Photos of candid moments throughout the event

After the wedding

  • Photo editing and retouching
  • Delivery of proofs, typically via a private online gallery
  • Assistance with photo selection and album design
  • Delivery of prints or an album, if included

How much should you tip a wedding photographer?

Tipping a wedding photographer is not required but is usually appreciated. Consider tipping $50 to $200 to express your gratitude if the photographer exceeds your expectations.

How much do wedding photographers make?

Wedding photographers make $40,000 to $60,000 per year on average, depending on their experience and location.

How do I find wedding photographers near me?

Start by searching our list of wedding photographers, then compare reviews and costs. After finding and contacting potential services:

  • Decide which photography style and aesthetic best suits your wedding.
  • Ask for referrals from friends, family, your wedding planner, the venue, and other wedding vendors.
  • Read their reviews on Fash and Google.
  • Choose a pro who specializes in wedding photography.
  • Interview your favorite photographers and discuss your ideas and vision.
  • Ask the photographer about their pre-wedding, wedding day, and post-wedding process.
  • Schedule an engagement photo shoot to allow you to work with the photographer before the wedding day.
  • Get a detailed contract in writing that breaks down everything included in your package, the payment plan, and the refund and cancellation policy.
  • Discuss the photo usage and printing rights to confirm how you and the photographer can use the images. Photographers typically retain the copyright to the images, giving them the right to use the photos for marketing and social media.
  • Beware of basing the decision solely on pricing. The photographer with the lowest price may lack experience or isn't as good as local competitors.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the photographer in your area.

  • How would you describe your photography style and approach?

Working with Heather was simple. I loved her suggestions for where to have the session AND advice on what to wear. She made my kids, and husband, feel comfortable right away. I enjoyed how she took time beforehand to understand my kids likes and the effort shows in the photos she took.

Luz is one of the kindest and artistically gifted people I know. She genuinely wants to capture you’re greatest moments while ultimately sharing them with you. Her photography will always put a smile on your face.

We had a frantic morning and nothing seemed to go right! David and his wife, Tamika, helped out with the wedding preparations in addition to their photography duties. The images are really excellent and the canvas adds a nice personalized touch to their package. They definitely went above and beyond and I would highly recommend them.

I've had nothing but good experiences working with Jeff. We work together on a regular basis and he continues to deliver on the needs we have. He also goes beyond just completing a job, but now knowing our business some he has brought things to our attention that we otherwise might not no about since we are in Philly firsthand. That is something you just don't get with most freelancers. I highly recommend Jeff.

I have no experience in front of a camera, but I decided to adventure to do a photoshoot. I was so nervous but the photographer was so professional; he guided me and made me feel so comfortable. Pictures came up better than I expected!
