Even though photography isn’t the area in your wedding where you should skimp your budget, it is possible to save some money by trying the following hacks. Here are 8 ways to get the best deal from the photographer economically.
Many photographers provide a discount to those who book them earlier than others. So when you have a wedding in the distant future, make a list of good photographers and book one for your wedding, a couple months prior to the wedding day. Sometimes you may not get a discount, but booking early gives you the time to choose from the list of expensive and inexpensive photographers.
Many families are not sure about their wedding photography budget until the eleventh hour. Be sure and let your service provider know the ballpark figure. They will surely offer a better deal to you once they know the range you are comfortable in spending.
One of the smartest ways to save you from a hefty expense is to go for digital photography instead of hard copied ones. When you have a disc full of wedding photographs, it is far less expensive than having a physical photo album containing thousands of photographs.
Don’t book a photographer to cover your entire wedding, instead classify the various events of a wedding into high and low priorities. Hire a professional to cover the high priority events and use your own camera during low priority events. After all, there must be someone at home who can click decent pictures if not like professionals!
If you are going to get copies of the pictures, purchase small sized pictures. They are cheaper than the large sized pictures and when you have a thousand plus photographs to deal with, you will be able to see that the expenses saved is quite a good sum of money.
You can check out the little portfolio of someone who is fresh in the industry. There are two benefits to it: first, they aren’t expensive like the seasoned photographers and second, they are impulsive and young and can actually come with unique fresh ideas.
In the rush of getting ready for the big day, it’s easy to surrender to the simplicity of preset photo or video packages, which usually tell you exactly what you’re getting and how much it’s going to cost. However, preset packages might include a lot of things that you aren’t looking for. So it’s always advisable to look for customized options.
Before hiring your provider and choosing your package, determine exactly how long they need to be present. You probably want to capture the high points such as the bridal makeup session, walking down till the mandap, the exchange of vows, the post-ceremony procession, and the cake cutting etc. A fixed time period will help you negotiate with the budget.
These are some important ways to get a good deal from the photographer you hire to cover your wedding.
