Making Your Wedding Photography Package Choice Based On Your Budget

Oct 22, 2007
When working with the constraints of a tight budget for a marriage, it is often difficult to find a wedding photography package that has everything. Some couples are lucky and have rich relatives who can help fund the event's photos.

Others are already hard-pressed for cash and have to try to find the money to create the wedding of their dreams. Budget wedding photography is out there; you just have to look for it.

The reason for this is that wedding photography prices are anything but standardized. Depending on the photographer you select, the format and style of photography and the length of the celebration, the base rate can fluctuate wildly.

Added to this is the fact that there are almost limitless options in the package. The more extras you add, the higher the price.

Many who are seeking budget wedding photography decide to spend their money on hiring a better photographer to do less work. Rather than selecting a lower priced photographer and ordering a huge photo package, they go with the photographer that they most trust and order a smaller package.

Some couples even forgo the traditional marriage photography package altogether and simply buy the negatives or original digital images from the photographer. These couples then use their own technological savvy to create personalized albums and reprints that are meaningful to them.

Some professional marriage photographers maintain a traditionalist view. They feel that as the expert, the photographer is the only one truly suited to put together the marriage album.

This argument does have some merit. The photographer is the only one who knows what he or she was trying to convey in each shot. Additionally, the photographer works closely with trusted contacts at the developing lab and is able to judge when photos return with imperfections.

He or she is familiar with color balance and stylistic concerns and is therefore quite adept at placing the photos within the album to create a pleasing whole.

In today's world, many people have learned how to use their computers and digital cameras to their benefit. With all the graphics software available, many couples choose to take their own photos with digital cameras and retouch the photos at home. This approach truly makes the wedding album a personal experience.

Many couples opt for the best of both worlds. These couples purchase a basic marriage photography package that includes a small album and a few reprints. They also purchase the original media and create a personalized album as well.

They may do reprints and reorders themselves, or they may order these items from their photographer, depending on how much time and money they have. This way, the couple receives a classic marriage album to show their children and grandchildren, as well as the ability to personalize and scrapbook to their hearts' content.

Wedding photography packages are as wide and varied as the people who buy them. The market is also changing every day, and more options become available with each passing moment.

Whether your marriage is traditional or something out of the ordinary, there is a professional wedding photographer to match your tastes. Don't forget that you don't have to buy the whole wedding photography package, either.

You can always hire a photographer for his time and buy the negatives and proofs or you can find a package that offers you a little bit everything you want. The choice is always up to you.
