So, how Much Does A Wedding Photographer Cost?
Wadkin -Photography says to expect costs starting from £1,000 for the full day. Anything less and I would be worried that maybe the photographer doesn’t have the correct experience to cover your day.
For a full day’s coverage, I would expect you to get 350+ fully edited images on USB.

Wedding Photographer Kevin Wadkin recommends that you set aside 10% of your budget. At the end of the day.
With the average Wedding in South Yorkshire costing £15,000, setting aside 10% for your photography budget works out at £1,500.

Half Day coverage

Some photographers offer an hourly rate and can charge for as little as 4 hours coverage.
Half day coverage with all images on a USB will cost around £500


For less than £1,000 your photographer might be relatively new to the industry or it could be because of location.
A price less than £1,000 doesn’t mean there no good, but it takes experience to get all those special moments. You should ask how many weddings they have shot and check there work on there website.

£1,000 – £1,200
For £1,000 to £1,200, you can often get exactly the same package as above, but with a large wedding album and framed prints. 
Always check exactly what a photographer’s package includes. They might charge £1,200 but the standard coverage is only until the end of the first dance.

Ahead of the wedding you should expect a pre-wedding consultation. This is essential for the photographer to know and will help you feel more comfortable with them on the day.
