When it comes to wedding photos, you only have one chance to get them right—a key reason to leave this work to a pro, not a snap-happy friend. Top professionals work with equally top-notch equipment. They’re everywhere, not missing a moment, capturing the magic of your day... which is why their fees are lofty. On average, professional wedding photography costs $1,853, according to theweddingreport.com. Still, there are discounts to be found—even from the top pros, who share these tips.

The Basics

1. Ask about price breaks if you’re having your wedding in slower months such as November, February or March, or if your wedding falls on a Thursday or Sunday night. The pros we spoke to tell us to expect between 10 and 20 percent savings.

2. Hire local talent. Most photo and video professionals base part of their fees on travel time to, from and in between locations, but, if asked, will often grant discounts if you’re having your wedding and reception in the same location, or if your sites are close to one another.

3. Don’t skimp on fees or food by eliminating photo assistants. These key technicians help set up the lighting and sound so the photographer can spend her precious time shooting you.

4. Ask about discounts based on referrals.
If a friend books a photographer or videographer based on seeing initial proofs or footage from your wedding, many pros will knock as much as $500 off your final payment.

5. Always mention who referred you. J.B. Yong, CEO of Sweet Dreams Studio Photography in Washington DC says, “I offer special discounts based on referrals.” (Case in point: He’ll offer $100 off to Bridal Guide readers if they mention this article.)

Did You Know: In big-ticket regions, such as New York City, average costs can be as high as $3,345 to $4,460 for a photographer’s time, with added albums, prints and slideshows bringing that total up to $6,201 to $8,268. And for videographer services plus editing in NYC, costs can reach an average of $2,169 to over $5,000 for more extensive editing. In Chicago, you could expect to pay between $2,451 and $4,085 for photography and videography in total.

Before you book your photographer
6. Plan your package: Photographers offer different packages (often called Budget, Gold or Platinum), based on time frames such as five or seven hours of shooting, plus the number of proofs, albums and other items wanted.

7. Choose the optimum number of hours. Discuss your itinerary and shot list with your photographer to determine how many hours you’ll need. You could save hundreds of dollars by not getting the seven-hour package.

8. Choose a package that offers fewer proofs. It’s far easier to choose your final selects from 300 fabulous proofs than from 1500!

9. Choose a simpler package. Emily Schlipf, a wedding photographer at Michael Grecco Photography in San Francisco, says, “Look for packages that don’t include an excessive number of albums, thank-you cards, proof books and more. The final fees will be far less.”

10. Go à la carte. “Brides on a budget might choose to skip certain types of album covers or a large canvas portrait from within a package,” says Yong. Ask if you can remove some pieces from an overall package for a price break.

Hot tip: If you book both your photography and videography from the same company, they may throw in a photo booth for free!

After the Wedding
11. Make big plans for free print proofs. “Proofs” are small, often 3x5 or 4x6-inch unedited prints of a select number of your wedding photos. If your package offers 100 free print proofs, use some for framing and for making albums for parents and grandparents.

12. Skip the proof book and review proofs online. Photographers offer an optional spiral-bound proof book, which can cost an average of $168, according to theweddingreport.com. If you review your proofs online you’ll save that extra cost. Plus, you can always order a proof book later if you really want one.

13. Ask for low-resolution images on disk. Professional photographers mark up the prices of high-resolution images for print quality, so ask for a disk of “low-res” photos to share on your Facebook page. The savings, says Schlipf, can be 15 to 20 percent less than high-res.

14. Ask for a free brag book. Many photographers throw in a free, small photo album (called a “brag book”) containing a few dozen photos.

15. Know which special effects are free. With digital photography, most experts won’t charge for sepia effects, black-and-white, soft-focus and other easy accents.

16. Be patient. Rush or same-day editing costs over $300 extra.

17. Order smaller prints. When you order from the photographer’s image gallery, choose budget-friendly 4x6 or 5x7 prints rather than larger sizes that can be twice the price.

18. Ask about extra freebies. Some photographers will throw in buyone- get-one-free prints for parents’ albums.

19. Lose the leather. The average cost for a leather-bound photo album is $464. Look into alternate materials, like canvas, that cost close to half the price of leather and still look lovely.

20. Go magazine style. A traditional hard-page album in flush-mount style (with one image glued to each page) costs on average $746, but a glossy magazine-style photo book with images on both sides of the page costs $400 or so from a pro, and $20 to $60 from a discount online photo company like Shutterfly. Plus, with a magazine-style album, you get more photos per page.

21. Stick to one album style. Schlipf says, “60 to 80 percent of the cost of the album is in the designer’s work to lay it out and retouch it. When you design your album, get an exact, smaller copy for your parents, which costs less than designing and editing a separate album for them.”

22. Skip the fancy detailing. Don’t pay hundreds extra for add-ons such as gold edging and rounded corners. Choose a standard design and let the photos shine. Plus, many experts will throw in a gold or silver monogram for free on the album cover.

23. Choose archival-quality photo albums. Don’t skimp with inexpensive store-bought albums as a way to save money. Quality albums protect and preserve your photos with acid-free papers and cover materials that will protect your precious prints for years to come.

24. Order thank-you card photos later. Unless they’re included for free in the photo package, it often costs far less to order wallet-sized photos from discount photo-ordering sites.
