My standard rate is a very reasonable £725 for a typical day (up to around 10hrs).
Or, if you prefer, £100/hr for shorter or more modest weddings.
The day rate is based on a typical 8-to-10-hour day, including things like bride/groom prep, ceremony, formal photos, reception, speeches, cake cutting, first dance, and a bit of partying afterwards (I never understood why photographers finish straight after the first dance – some of the most fun photos happen afterwards, when everything’s done and there’s no more pressure!).
Of course every wedding is different, so if you’re having a shorter or more modest celebration then pricing will be reduced accordingly. I wouldn’t charge the same for an evening wedding as one that starts at 10am!
That’s all you’ll ever be asked to pay; there are no hidden charges for editing, delivery etc.
You’ll get your photos as digital downloads in full resolution, which you can view online and download to use however you like.
You will receive a lot of photos – it varies too much to give an official min/max figure, but often works out around 100+ photos per hour. 800-1200 fully edited pictures is pretty typical for me after a full day wedding!
(Events, portraits, headshots and all other non-commercial work)
A lot of people won’t need to deal with photographers regularly, but I think everyone should have access to nice photos when they need them! So I think it’s important to have pricing that’s clear and affordable.
For most typical photography work (events, christenings, family portraits, pet photos, graduations, headshots etc), you just pay £50 per hour, as long as it’s for for two hours or more.
For a single hour (or less) I offer a fixed price of £75. My day rate (8 hours) is £400.
I love working with businesses and have extensive experience in promotional photography, real estate and corporate portraiture. Please get in touch to find out more about my services! I don’t generally offer food or product photography services, however, since I feel they’re best left to a specialist in the field.
