Wedding Photography Package For Your Clients

Ever wonder how to start making a wedding photography package? You may know an exact amount that you can charge from your clients. However, a breakdown of price will give a convincing idea to the couple for what they are paying to you.

Here’s a list of the things you need to include in your wedding photography package:

1. Number of Events to be Photographed

First thing that you need to discuss with your client is the number of events that need to be covered. You can divide it into number of days too.

Few of the wedding ceremonies last long and the client ask you to cover all the events. It is recommended to discuss the events in details before signing up the contract.

2. Number of Photographers Shooting the Wedding

Most of the wedding photographers have second shooters to cover the details of the all events. It is also a value added service to charge a good price from the client for delivering more in less time.

Number of Photographers

The wedding photography contract should include number of additional photographers that are assisting you in the wedding shoot. You can add or remove the second shooters on the basis of need of your client.

3. Number of Hours for the Shoot

For each event that you signed to shoot, you should talk about the number of hours. Most of the clients would expect you to be available for all day. However, you should charge on hourly basis to restrict the misuse of your services.

  1. I would focus on one camera, zoom lens (24-105mm is my pick), & a strong compact flash, along with several camera & flash batteries in your pockets, & extra memory cards. Manual or aperture setting on camera. Know what setting to use on your flash beforehand. Bring along a backup camera, & one or two portable strobe light with stands, and a flash meter (with spare batteries).
