    • Wedding: September 2014

    We paid 3k for 2 photographers and 3 videographers all day, with 3 edited videos (the ceremony, toasts and we’ll wishes, and a highlight video) plus over 1,000 edited images on a disc and the rights to everything. I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

    We’re paying $3250 for all day coverage, photography only (we chose to skip the videographer because although nice in theory, we just don’t think we’d ever watch a video of the wedding). The price includes two photographers.

    We’re paying just under $3,000 for two photographers (one of whom is doing all-day coverage) and the hire fee for a historic building to do our wedding party shoot and for lights. and $1,750 for 10 hour videography. We lucked out since the main photographer is an acquaintance of mine but prices generally start at $2,500-$3,000 for great photographers in Auckland.

    photography: 3600

    videgoraphy: 2650

    I don’t even remember what that includes. I know for videography we got all the footage on a harddrive, two edited videos and entirety of speeches and ceremony. Photography includes 8 hours, full-res photos, engagement shoot, 2 shooters… man, this whole thing is a money pit.

    • Wedding: September 2017 - Ceremony and Reception: Historic mansion on the water

    Photography so far is $6500.  Haven’t booked the videographer yet.  Let’s face it at the end of the wedding day all you will have to remember the day by are the memories you capture on film and in video.  For both of these areas we said we’d pay top dollar for if that is what it cost for the vendors we want.
