Average Prices. Above average Portraits. The average cost for catering a wedding in North America is about $8500 give or take $50. Feel free to compare that price tag to the cost of each Wedding Portrait Package right here on this website. Now what I’ll ask is that you think ahead and imagine what happens to close to $10000 worth of food and booze within a day or two. Now, think ahead twenty years and imagine your photo album from your wedding and compare your album side by side with all that food and booze. This maybe a bit dramatic, but it’s a really good indication of the importance of your investment when it comes to planning your wedding and reception. It’s a struggle for every Photographer to figure out pricing structures, in fact, most Photographers don’t post prices. I can tell you why from my perspective. Personally it’s because taking photos is ALOT of fun. Like, ALOT. How do you price “ALOT”. An extraordinary amount of time goes into preplanning and editing, uploading, transferring, etc., etc. let’s pretend I take a hundred photos. That alone could be anywhere between 1 and 5 hours. Now we sort them so add another hour or so. Out of those 100 photos, I might want to use 10 to 15 of them, depending on the type of shoot. Now editing. Well, I’m picky, so an off colour might have me befuddled for a short while before I tweak it to the point nobody notices. Odd, 10 hours have gone by with such a small amount of photos. That’s the kicker. I purposefully try to make sure nobody knows a photo is edited. So, when I do what I love to do, and then make art. It was confusing, at least for me, to figure out what my services are worth. I’m proud of the end result because I think it’s very fair, especially for something that you and your family will be enjoying 20 or 30 years from now.
