Hi all,

do you all know roughly how much does it cost to get a wedding event photographer nowadays.
Tasks is for the whole day from morning to night. Just a rough figure will do. Coz my colleague is getting married but do not know how much to budget for this.

thank you for your help.

cheers-
CLQ

Hi CLQ, I'm a wedding photographer, and with regard to pricing, it really depends on what your friend wants at the end of the day. Service fee can start anywhere from $800-3500 depending on the photographer, does your friend want the whole wedding shot on medium format film etc, after that it depends on the album you choose where the range can be anywhere from $250 to $5000. On average, most of my clients spend about $3500-4500 and i think for the Singapore market we are considered on the higher side. Hope this helps.

hey all.
thanks for the replies :)

when you all say 3000++ is it does studio photos?

what i meant was actually the photographer to go around with the couples to maybe churchs, homes, wedding dinners on the actual day.

as for studio, i do not know if my colleagues need the price too. i will check with her.

once again thank you all for the information.

best regards :)

there's a certain hamster here that does it free
Oh, yes, he does free service, but I think you have to be a member first......... heheh.

A average wedding day photography is around $800~$1k, spend more if ones can afford it, and try not to save money on this, because this is an once a lifetime event.

Hi CLQ, no, it's not for studio photos. I only specialize in actual day photography so the $5K is towrds their actual day. Yes, most photogs use 35mm slrs, but the higher end ones may also use medium format. I do sometimes.
An increasing trend among couples is to forgo their pre wedding/studio shoot and just spend all the money on their actual day wedding photography. Or that's the way with most of my clients anyway. Can't really speak for other photographers.
