Wedding Photography Save Me! Photography is your wedding day parachute. Make sure it opens when you need it!

Your Wedding Photography Parachute

Expenses are piling up and you’ve already spent more than you want to. But keep this important fact in mind: Low-budget wedding photography is about as risky a decision as you will ever make. It’s extremely chancy to skimp on something that you want to enjoy for the rest of your life!  It’s like the old joke about negotiating a discount with someone to pack your parachute and then going skydiving–the money you saved won’t mean a thing if that chute doesn’t open!

Well, what should my photography cost? The Knot does an annual survey of brides to find out what they paid for “average” wedding photography. The latest survey results (2014) as published in USA Today show that average wedding photography costs $2,440. If you want above-average photography with amenities such as two photographers, more than 8 hours of coverage and/or a wedding album, then you should expect to pay more than that.

The good news is that paying more for great photography is actually cheap wedding day insurance. Guard your photography budget like a skydiver checking her chute before getting into the plane. Be certain that your parachute will get you safely on the ground. It is far better to spend more that you had planned than to look at those pictures afterward and wish you had spent more. They can never be done over again–there are no upgrades next year. Knowing that as you look at pictures you don’t like is the very definition of heartbreak. At that moment, the $1,000 you saved won’t be worth ten cents.
