Wedding Photography Prices – Do These Make Sense?

A couple of things stand out for me: 1. In your packages you use the term $3000/$2000/$1000 album. This doesn’t actually tell me what I’d be getting. Is this the value of the album? How many pages/pictures would each album contain? What is the difference in size or quality between the albums? I realise that these are a lot of questions but perhaps they could be addressed with slightly more of a description?

2. I would use the phrase “digital copies on DVD or USB drive” rather than “a hard drive”. Also, is this a disk of high res copies (unwatermarked?) and in what format? And while you wouldn’t be attributing copyright to a client, they do need to know whether they have the right to make additional prints for their personal use or otherwise share the pictures you supply on disk. You could cover this with a small “terms and conditions” paragraph at the foot of the page rather than cluttering the package description with too many words.

I think it is fairly clear, although would make clear if they get the images from the engagement shoot with wedding photos on hard drive possibly. Also make clear what sort of permissions clients have with the photos possibly. Just for clarity I would put engagement photo shoot or session. Do you want to start with the most expensive at the top? or build up to it I would be more likely to read the rest of the page and options with the list the other way around. I feel I am losing things as I scroll down page not gaining more if that makes sense?

Happy to help. Actually, I am a photographer so have had to give considerations to the very same issues!

I’m a press and documentary photographer so mainly events and reportage but I do take a very limited number of wedding commissions every year. I specialise in offbeat weddings though!

I would research ways to make your website rank higher in Google searches.  I’m sure you have your own plan for advertising, but a few changes could make it easier for people to find your business online. Just a thought!

JulieSaadWeddings:  I know Mersea Island because I have friends in Essex. I’m from South East England (East Sussex) which is about 50 miles from London and we have the most fabulous countryside round here. I’m very lucky to live here! I love NYC too though and spent a great week working on a story there. Also, my DIL is from the US (NM and Utah via Portland OR) so I’m lucky to have lots of reasons to cross the Atlantic!

I would suggest putting the photo on that page at the top rather than the bottom. That way people are more likely to see it.

i might reword the album credit thing – “album size of your choice with a total value of x”. When you list the album price per page, you could list how many pages $1000 gets you?
