Charlotte, NC Wedding Photography Pricing from Cheap to Luxury
Charlotte, NC wedding photographers range in starting prices from as little as $500 all the way up to $10,000. The reason there is such a large gap is because Charlotte wedding photographers can be broken into 3 categories. The price points do vary within the categories, but are kept within a much closer range within those categories. Let's explore the ranges and see what meets your needs best! Keep in mind that cheap and expensive are relative terms, and I'm basing this on what the regular or normal range is for Charlotte, NC.
The cheap category for a Charlotte, NC Wedding Photographer falls at the $2,000 mark and below for full day coverage. Generally these photographers are either new, building their portfolio, students, or shoot to burn. To make any money these photographers have to shoot a good bit of weddings to be able to cover the costs of running their businesses. This generally implies that they have less time to invest in each and every wedding. Most of the photographers in this range have full-time jobs outside of wedding photography. The cheaper wedding photographers also do not offer the quality of products the higher category of wedding photographers offer. Jennifer Brecheisen Photography offers albums and products from 2 wonderful companies: Red Tree Albums & Graphistudio. RedTree Albums are handmade in America while Graphistudio products are handmade in Italy. The cheap Wedding Photographers do no own professional camera equipment, and they have to come to the wedding underprepared or they will rent equipment for the job. A lot of them cannot afford to carry business insurance, and being protected is important in any industry. You may be able to find a gem out there that is a wonderful photographer and they are just beginning to their business, so they are offering a lower price. I don't want to discourage anyone looking in this price range. Just make sure and do a lot of research before deciding on anyone.
*Shoot to burn means they shoot the wedding and burn the images to a cd without any editing to deliver to you the day after your wedding.
This is the regular price range for a Charlotte, NC Wedding Photographer. Partial day coverage generally starts around $2500-$3500, and full day coverage begins around $3500 & $5500. These photographers have experience in the 3-9 year range as Full-time Professional Wedding Photographers. There is a lot of competition in this price range, so you can find an amazing photographer within this range. My recommendation is you interview thoroughly and nail down a style you like. Then decide based on who you feel most comfortable with and who offers the products you like the most.
With this range you can expect Wedding Collections that also contain products such as albums and prints. Both this range and the high-end range Wedding Photographers value their craft, their work, their time, and the printed product.
The Luxury Wedding Photographers starting prices begin around $8,000 and go up from there. These photographers typically have 10+ years of experience as Full-Time Wedding Photographers. They may do destination weddings, and work with CEO's, Celebrities, etc. These photographers place high value on themselves, and they definitely deserve it. They offer top of the line collections, services, experience and products that cannot be matched.
The best thing to do is go with the person you feel the most comfortable with. After all, they will be working closely with you in meetings leading up to the wedding, and they will be the ones working the closest with you all day long on your wedding day!
