Get the Most Out of Your Wedding Photographer Budget

For all the couples out there getting married on a budget, this is for you! Photography can be one of the most significant investments for your wedding, but it doesn't have to be. Wedding photography in Rathdrum is all about balance. You don't want to skimp on quality, but you also don't want to spend more money than you must. Here are some tips from Deborah A Cole Photography on how to get the most out of your wedding photography budget:

Pick a Photographer Whose Style You Love - When you're looking at potential photographers, you should already have a good idea of the style of photography you prefer. Whether it's classic and timeless or fun and creative, choose a photographer whose work reflects the style you desire.


*If you're unsure what style you want, look through as many wedding magazines or my website as possible to get an idea of the different styles.

*Ask your friends who have recently gotten married for recommendations on photographers they used and loved.

Set a Budget - Before you start talking to potential photographers, it's important to have a realistic idea of how much you're willing to spend on wedding photography. Once you have a number in mind, you can start the process of elimination by crossing off any photographers whose rates are out of your budget. With my affordable Rathdrum wedding photography prices, my average cost of a wedding package will fit any budget.


*Consider factors such as the number of hours you need coverage for and whether you want engagement photos when coming up with your budget.

*Don't forget to factor in the cost of prints and albums when setting your budget.

Get a List of What’s Included in Your Package - When you're looking at different photographers' rates, make sure to ask what's included in their packages. Some photographers include the cost of prints and albums in their rates, while others charge extra for these items.


*If you're planning on ordering prints and an album from your photographer, ask about package deals to see if you can get a discount.

*Find out if your photographer offers discounts for booking multiple hours of coverage or for booking engagement photos as well.

Schedule a Consultation - Before you book a photographer, meeting with them in person is important to ensure you're on the same page. This is your opportunity to get to know them and see if their personality meshes well with yours.


*Prepare a list of questions to ask during your consultation.

*Discuss your wedding vision and what you're looking for in a photographer.

Ask About Discounts - If you're getting married on a weekday or during an off-peak season, you may be able to get a discount on your photography services.


*Don't be afraid to ask your photographer if they offer any discounts.

*If you're flexible with your wedding date, see if there are any dates where your photographer offers a discount.

Book Early - The sooner you book your photographer, the more likely you will get the date and time you want. If you wait too long, you may have to settle for someone less than your first choice.


*Start looking for a photographer six months before your wedding date.

*Once you find someone you like, don't hesitate to book them.
