How much for Photography?
Posted 29 February 2004 - 09:04 PM
We are lucky enough to know someone who does wedding photography as a hobby but his work is really professional. He has done 60 weddings this past year and has never advertised.
For $700 we are getting 2 sets of approx. 280 photos (one set displayed in 2 albums the other set loose) in the larger 5" x 7" prints, this includes a roll of black and white and borders on the prints and all the negatives. He is going to come to my parents house, where I will be getting ready and take photos there, at the church, formal wedding party photos and photos at the reception for about three hours to cover speeches etc.
We thought that this was a great deal, but there is also the fact that we do know this person, however his prices are generally around this mark anyway.

I can't remember all the details of our photography package, but we paid about $1100 I think. That included our professional album and the proofs. We ordered reprints etc separately, and the negatives were not included (this didn't concern us).
I think it was well worth the money, we were completely satisfied with the great service, and everything turned out beautifully. Rob was very prompt in getting our album finished, I was very impressed as it was over the Christmas period.
We opted not to have a professional video done, so we had a little more money to spend on photos.

However, we also took this photographer to London to do our wedding there. She covered two days. I won't go into total price, except to say we ended up with two fabulous albums and it was worth every cent!

We loved him, he was great! We haven't seen our photos yet (I CAN'T WAIT!) but everything else we were very happy with.

Enlargements were more (the cheapest was around $23) and we have also requested our pics on a CD which is an additional charge.
We are thrilled with our pics though and would do it all over again! It is well worth the money to have a professional photographer to take pics.

He is a pretty good photographer and all the ones I went to were around this price.
We get the album and two enlargements with this package but I need to ask about proofs cos the engagement ones were too small and showed little details....

We had the photographer at the guys house, my house, ceremony, 3 hours of location shots and then the start of the reception, unlimited photos, and a proof album of all shots taken on the day.
We also got a big 15 page digital album with 110 photos in it!!! Had we gone for a standard album we would have had to cut it down to about 50!!! It was hard enough getting down from 340 to 110!!!
If it hadnt have been a friend we would have gotten a much smaller package, but the standard of the photos is phenomenal!!! We have had comments from lots of professional photographers about how great the photos are, so they must be pretty great(to others that is, not just me!!!)!!!
There is no hard and fast rule about how much to spend, the most important this is to find a photographer that you are comfortable with, who shows you lots of previous albums they have done, and definitely tells you exactly what is included with the package you are purchasing (definitely in writing!!), and also that is adaptable to your style of photos, you dont want someone who only takes 'formal' shots if you want very candid, fun photos!

Im going to say the opposite and totally NOT recommend our photographer to ANYONE.
Most of the photos were fantastic, a few could have been better (photography is a hobby of mine so I am very fussy and I know what to look out for) but the actual SERVICE was disgusting.
The owner of the business was all nice until our balance was due a fortnight before the wedding. He contacted me and abused me over the phone, was a very smarty pants and even said horrible things about my husband. He questioned why everytime he spoke to my hubby, hubby didnt know anything about the details of the payments etc....Its because I was organising every detail of the wedding myself (this is how we agreed) so I knew all about it. The owner questioned whether my husband knew the date of our wedding!!!
He yelled at me over the phone, and got me very upset. At the time, I was 5 months pregnant.
The actual photographer, I didnt meet beforehand but I had seen his work and had spoken to him on the telephone and he sounded nice and professional.
On the day, he was very sleazy and spoke to the guests in a horrible manner. He even made sexual remarks about the bridesmaids and one of my S-I-Ls.
The way he was talking to me while I was posing, I felt like I was posing for a Playboy shoot, not my own wedding day.
The hard thing was, I had to shut up the whole time because I had total trust in this guy to take nice photos. If I had caused a scene, he would have ruined my photos for sure.
This business is in Melbourne. If anyone has booked anyone or is looking to book anyone in Melbourne, PM me and I will be happy to let you know who the business is so that you hopefully dont have the same experience.
On a happier note, yesterday when I collected my photographs, I told the owner what I thought of him and how unhappy I was, infront of a couple who were potential clients......

He was reasonably priced for what we got, and did take nice piccies, but was an absolute a**hole, not to mention a bit loopy-loo-la in the end. He used to advertise in Bride to Be, but seems to have vanished off the face of the earth now (too bad if we wanted reprints eh!)
The saddest fact was he was recommended to us, but Anths cousin who happened to work fot the mag!
