How much do photographers cost?
There are many things for a couple to consider in planning their wedding. Among those things, in my experience; quality, value and cost are rather important to people. Especially these days. People want the best photographer, for the lowest cost, and they do not want any mistakes. And who can blame them?! On my San Diego wedding day, I wanted the same thing. As with any field, you will find those who have very little experience and are willing to charge very little. You will also find San Diego wedding photographers who charge great amounts of money for their work. Their work might be excellent, however, if your budget is tight- some couples just wonder "how low can we go and still make sure that the photographer is an expert?" There are some things to take into consideration: First, one needs to take a look at this photographer's work. My advice would be to take a look at a high-level photographer's work (I am willing to show my work to anyone free of charge- I offer consultations free to anyone). www.photographysandiego.org/weddings.php Look with your own eyes and see if their work is any good. The difference between an experienced photographer's and a fledgling "novice" San Diego wedding photographer is like night and day. Your San Diego wedding only happens once. Then next point to consider is if you make a connection with your San Diego photographer. Novices are usually found for less money. As stated, novices can make costly and "dire" errors and usually, yes you bet, the pics are not nearly as good as ones from an expert. Experts know where to go, where to stand and they are excellent at anticipating the next moves. The finished product is a photo journalistic account of your special day which is tailored to what YOU want- not something forced.
This comes from their years of experience. Novices aren't working with bad intentions, they are just not experienced. All of us started as novices. We had to start "there" to get to "here." And, yes, we charged less also. But if you want to work with San Diego wedding photographers that have mastery over ALL of the hows, the whys and the whats, you need to work with someone who is established. "You get what you pay for." And how. This could not be any more true than in this profession. We have been at it for a long time. We know that many are strapped for cash. They are wondering about discounts and some have even been willing to sacrifice their pictures.... We get it. I get it. And myself, I have kept my prices as low as I can for the quality and assistance that I am providing for the clients. But I am always trying to tell clients- please! there are reasons to hire the more qualified people on your wedding day if you: a. don't want things going wrong & b. want the day to cost less.... "Wait...did he say spend more for the say to cost less?" Yes! Another great thing about an expert: AND it can save you money! CONNECTIONS. Experts know people! Many higher end San Diego wedding photographers can connect you with the other vendors, etc and they are going to give you some amazing insights which you would not expect. For many, this can save thousands! Not to mention time.
The wedding album is where the history of the wedding day is told. Is that precious element of a San Diego Wedding photography that brings it all together. All the moments, elements and details of the San Diego wedding day goes in the wedding album. Only the most history-telling images goes in to really move and touch who is seeing the album. The wedding album is a must and the premium ones last a life time.
The coverage of a San Diego wedding day starts at the bridal suite documenting the early preparations, the dress, shoes and other details. It's critical to document the bride getting ready. The finish touches on the make up, getting into the dress, the interaction with the bridesmaids and finally the first portrait of the day with the bride at her suite. It's also important to document the groom's preparation and also a portrait of the groom is required.
Some people overlook that initial part of the day not realizing how special it is and how relevant to the wedding day it is.
A good coverage range from 8-10 hours. if you choose to go with less than that you may be risking to loose important moments that happens on a wedding day.
Also important is, how many San Diego wedding photographers you need on your wedding: Minimum of 2 San Diego wedding photographers would be required. This way you always get both ends of what is happening on your san Diego wedding.
