When it comes to keeping your wedding within budget there are many aspects that may be up for debate. For example, do you really need to release a flock of doves at the exact moment you and your sweetheart say “I do”? Probably not. That said, what is never up for debate is whether or not you should have a fantastic wedding photographer; to this question the answer is always yes.
Since we know your wedding photographer is a non-negotiable, the best plan of attack is knowing how to leverage your superior communication skills to get the best wedding photography prices and, of course, the best photos. To help you find your way, we’ve been chatting with brilliant wedding photographers who have some handy advice at the ready.

Sadler Photography shares, there are a couple of common factors that most photographers consider when setting up their pricing structures. “Some go by market prices (what those of a similar caliber in the same geographic area are charging),” while others “gauge how much they need to make a living, therefore how many weddings a year at what price in order to make a living.”
