How much wedding photography coverage do I need?

Posted in: Weddings

This might be a common question for many brides! In my almost 8 years of being in business, I have encountered this question many times. Budgeting is often the reason behind this question. I got you, girl! I’ll help you out with simple or complex details such as this one because all of us need a little info right?

Estimating your coverage time can be a little difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Coverage can vary depending on some factors. Determining factors are guest count, bridal party count, traditions, toasts, first dances, etc., which can be factors that will determine your final timeline.

When we first meet I’ll be able to show you how I work at a wedding. During our meeting together I will put together a customized timeline for your wedding. At our meeting, I will then suggest the most compatible package from the ones listed below.

I have created the following all-inclusive wedding photography packages. Let’s review below all about your wedding photography and how much coverage you need. I will start from the smallest to the biggest one.

Fun Sized

This package is recommended for couples who want all coverage from getting ready to some of the reception and couples who do not want/need that much coverage of the open dance floor. This package works best for 100 guests or fewer weddings, and up to 3 people at the wedding party (bridesmaids and groomsmen). I am including a sample timeline that shows coverage for 6 hours. This sample will have a ceremony at 3 PM.

My fun-sized package ($3500 + tax) includes the following:

6 hours of wedding coverage
2 Photographers
1-hour engagement session
One 8×8 custom cover wedding album
Carefully curated online gallery
Download & Print release

Timeline listed below

Let’s Party!

The Let’s Party package is for couples who want a little more. This package is different from the previous one because it includes a bridal session and a larger album. The timeline is the same as the Fun-sized, as they both have 6 hours of coverage.

The Let’s party package ($4000 + Tax) includes:

6 hours of wedding coverage
2 Photographers1 Hour engagement session
1 Hour Bridal session
One 12×12 custom cover wedding album
Carefully curated online gallery
Download & Print release
