Why does quality custom photography cost ‘so much’?

We’ve all been affected by the current economy to some degree. We’re all on a budget of some sort. Everybody is looking for ways to save money – and that includes planning their weddings! I am a big fan of DIY and finding ways to save money, but I believe photography should be one of those things you don’t cut corners on. Brian and I had a relatively small budget for our own wedding, and we spent nearly one third of our budget on our photography – because it was such a priority for us. One of my good friends (and bridesmaids) had a tiny little budget, and she also spent a third on HER photography. I know that not everybody is going to dedicate that large of a percentage to their photography, but the cliche of it being the only thing left is very true.

Instead of me taking the time to write up the reasons photography costs what it does, let me just point you to a few people who already took the time. 🙂

    sing it sister! sadly, i've had so many clients say their friends/family have had terrible experiences with their photographers and bad photographs of their wedding because they hired an inexpensive less qualified photographer 🙁
