If you plan to tie the knot or elope in the Raleigh, Durham, or Chapel Hill areas of NC, you might wonder how much you should budget for your wedding photographer.
This number can vary depending on several factors, such as the location, the style, the experience, and the package of the photographer you choose.
According to Heart of NC Weddings, you can expect to pay, on average, anywhere up to $8,000 for your wedding photographer, depending on your preferences and needs.
Some photographers offer hourly rates, while others have fixed packages that include a certain number of hours, photos, and services. Some of the services that may affect the price are:
- Engagement session
- Second shooter
- Photo editing and retouching
- Online gallery or USB drive
- Prints or albums
- Travel fees
Research and compare different options to find the best wedding photographer for you and your partner. Most importantly, have a conversation and make sure the vibe is right.
Book your photographer at least 6 to 12 months in advance to secure your date and avoid disappointment. Ask for their availability, pricing, and contract details.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
