The Value of Wedding Photography | Cost of Wedding Photography

Before you begin your search for the perfect photographer, you will want to really understand the value of wedding photography. Photography is a way to relive your Wedding Day for years to come. It is a way for your dad to remember how it felt to see his beautiful daughter for the first time in her dress. This is also a chance for you to see the awestruck look on your beloved’s face when you walk down the aisle. It truly is the only way to preserve those once-in-a-lifetime moments that are easy to forget years down the road. The hope is to communicate the Cost of Wedding Photography and the true, future-value of it.

The Real Value of Wedding Photography

A talented photographer will make your other wedding investments even more valuable. Think about it this way. You say yes to the dress of your dreams, have the cascading bouquet you’ve always hoped for, and have never felt so glamorous with your hair and makeup perfect! Not to mention, you’re smiling more than you have any other day you can remember. But what if that emotion isn’t captured as beautifully? What if you paid thousands for that dress, only to not love the pictures of it? What if the flowers you’ve been wanting for years aren’t photographed with all the detail? A skilled photographer who matches your style will be able to provide you with beautiful images showcasing the money, time, and thought you put into your day!


Choosing your Photographer

Obviously, you want to love their work. Pay attention to a full Gallery’s edits – this will show you how their style differs indoors, in harsh lighting, and during the reception. Instagram is a way to fall in love with a style, but it should not be how you make a decision on who will be your third-wheel all day. Instagram will only show the best lighting scenarios that align with their ideal style.

Your Photographer is a personality hire. The person you would want to grab a drink with or make small talk with all day long – because you will. The consultation call is a great time to ask any lingering questions, but an even better time to get a feel for their personality.

Why Invest in a Wedding Photographer?

That’s why the right photographer is so important to your day. This is who will be third-wheeling your day, keeping you to your timeline (that they created), and hopefully, they have the expertise and experience to problem-solve in the moment. Oh! And something that is so, so important to me and my team is timeless photography style. You should be able to look back at your photos years later and know they stand the test of time. We specialize in a fine art, light and airy style that is more true-to-color so that your photos will always be in style. 

Most professional photographers offer customizable collections to suit your specific wedding day needs. These packages can include engagement shoots, multiple photographers, and heirloom albums. The cost of Wedding Photography does vary, but the average cost of a photographer in the midwest ranges from $4,000 – $5,500. With my personal expertise, years of experience, and nomination as Minnesota Bride’s Best Photographer in My State, I begin pricing at $5,000.

Wedding Photography

Wedding photography is not just about taking pictures. It’s about preserving memories that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life. A professional wedding photographer will capture the essence of your special day, from the nervous excitement of getting ready to the joy of your first dance. These images will become family heirlooms, passed down through generations to come.

My advice to help you choose is to read real client testimonies. Reading reviews from past clients is an excellent way to understand the quality and professionalism of a wedding photographer. Look for photographers with positive feedback and glowing testimonials to ensure you’re making a wise investment. But know the most important review comes from how a photographer handles making a mistake. My personal promise is to always make it right and put the client above all else because your experience is the most important thing to me.

Choosing your photographer:

  • Hop on a Consultation Call to get a feel for their Personality
  • Decide what Style you want – Light & airy, True-to-color, Moody, etc.
  • Read the Reviews
  • Peek at Instagram, but look at a REAL Gallery to see a sample of the full day’s edits
