This is your first time hiring a wedding photographer. You may be wondering if there are any hidden cost involved?  Perhaps also  considering which package to choose from: 6 hours, 8 hours or a full day coverage? 

I am here to guide you with what you should be getting from your wedding photography package and make sure that you get the most out of it. After all, it is the photos that will help you remember your big day for years to come.

What is a photography package?

A photography package is a preset collection of services that a photographer offers to their client.  A wedding photography package can vary based on photographers but they usually include the following:   


  • Coverage: the number of hours photographer will be present during the day
  • Number of photographers: number of photographers attending to capture the special moment
  • Engagement Photoshoot: Whether an engagement photoshoot will be included to help you and your partner feel  comfortable in front of camera before your wedding day
  • Edited image: the number of image edited and delivered to you in digital format
  • Wedding album: A printed album that includes a selection of your favourite wedding photos
  • Prints: Prints of your photos in different sizes

How many hours of photo coverage will I need?

I would always advise choosing a package with as many hours as you can afford. You'll definitely do not want look back at your wedding photos and regretted missing some important moments. A 10-12 hours wedding photography coverage will be perfect to capture all moments from pre-wedding festivities, intimate family moments, candid get ready moments, wedding portraits, family and bridal parties and full coverage of ceremony, reception and moments in between. Most wedding photography package will atleast include 8 hours of coverage, which will be sufficient to capture getting ready candids, formal wedding photos, the wedding ceremony and reception highlights.

What does a typical wedding photography cost?

Wedding photography services vary greatly depending on the experience of the photographers and many other factors. When comparing the different cost of photographers, it is important to consider the value they bring to the table. For instance, what will you photographer bring on your day? How much photography and editing experience do they have? The more value they can provide, the more the package will be worth.
