Wedding Photography Pricing

Wedding Photography Prices

Since you’re looking at wedding photography prices, chances are very good that you’re wondering, “How much does a wedding photographer cost?”

In a city like Austin, the average price for a wedding photographer can vary wildly. I’ve found that most talented, creative, and artistic wedding photographers tend to fall into the range of $4,000-$6,000 for an 8-hour wedding.

I believe my wedding photography prices are an excellent value for the level of beautiful photography, remarkable customer service, and heirloom-quality albums you receive.

My simple and transparent wedding photography pricing, which you'll find below, makes it easy to create the perfect custom package. You'll also be able to easily compare the cost of my wedding photography with other Austin wedding photographers.

Wedding Photography

I charge $500 per hour of photography.

Typical Saturday weddings need between 6 and 8 hours of photography to capture the entire event. More-involved weddings with multiple locations, many guests (175+), or long receptions may require between 8 and 10 hours to capture the whole day.

Micro weddings and elopements often require much less time, often from 1 to 3 hours. Pricing for smaller weddings and engagements can be found here.

Saturday weddings must be a minimum of 6 hours. However, 4-6 hour weddings may be booked within one month of the wedding date if I still have the date available.

Weddings on major holidays are subject to an additional fee.

Some weddings, especially larger or longer events, would benefit from a second photographer. A second photographer can be added for $150/hour. I'm happy to offer my best recommendation as to whether your event needs one or two photographers.

Engagement/Bridal Sessions

Bridal Session at Laguna Gloria in Austin, Texas

Engagement sessions and bridal sessions are $500 plus tax.

Engagements and bridal sessions are great, low-pressure ways to get comfortable in front of the camera as well as to get some fabulous, frameable photos to show at your wedding and hang in your home.

Engagement and bridals sessions may be purchased separately from wedding photography. Some couples choose to do this if they are visiting Austin for their engagement session but are having their wedding elsewhere. I am always happy to travel for weddings though!
