Hi all, we have recently been to an event and met a lovely photographer and her work is amazing.


I've not a clue what the going rates are for photographers so needed advice!
For £995 she is offering the whole day, bridal prep to first dance, boxed USB with all images, up to 200 edited images of our choice.
Is this a good price?! We're based in the Midlands!

    Midlands here too. That price sounds about right. One question though is the " up to 200 edited images of our choice"

    Does that mean you get shown -- say 500 and you have to pick 200 which will then be properly edited ? 200 sounds a little short.

    For reference after editing I deliver at least 400 images from a full day coverage.

    Thanks so much for the reply. I'm not 100% as I haven't spoken to them about that package directly, I wanted to get a bit more knowledge. Thank you 😊

    Ok its just that some will will have a set amount and then it will cost more if you want more. You will be shown many more than the low set amount - and of course you are going to want many of the others that you have seen, at extra cost.

    I state that for an all day coverage it will generate be at least 400. I do take more than that and then sort out the shut eyes ect but if they are good then you will get the extra at no extra charge.

    I’m in Surrey (so automatically more expensive! 🙄) and we are paying £1200 for whole day - bridal prep to after first dance and a USB. Not sure on amount of photos yet - the contract says all images copyright free on USB so sounds like we get them all!

    This sounds quite reasonable to me! I’m in the Midlands too and paying £1600 and the only difference is that we will get 400-500 images xx

    This sounds about right to me! I'm a photographer in the midlands and offer 7 hours for £950 however the only difference is that I would give more edited images at around 400, 200 seems a little short. I also deliver them in an online gallery rather than a USB. I would ask them to clarify what images you actually do get. Some photographs may charge you additional above that 200. thanks xx

    Hi, we’re getting married in Derbyshire and our photographer is 899 for a digital package - 10 hours bridal prep - first dance. 30 printed 6x9 professional prints, full gallery set to music, social media online sneak peak preview gallery within a few days, all photos on a wooden USB and a full set of social media images for direct upload to instagram or Facebook.
    We can also choose to pay to have an album done after the wedding as long as it’s within 6 months. He does beautiful albums so we will do that for definite, but trying to cut costs for pre-wedding.

    I’m north east and paying £1600 which seemed to be the going rate near me for what I wanted. It Sounds like a really good deal to be honest however I would say we get around 1000 edited pictures which almost sounds like too much to me! I’ll need a whole weekend just to view them all 🤣
