In an age where everyone has a digital camera many people feel they can hire just anyone to photographer their Vancouver Wedding, and they question why are Vancouver Wedding Photographers so expensive?
Here is a basic cost breakdown for a typical eight hour Vancouver Wedding.
Typically a Vancouver Wedding Photographer meets with the bride and groom several times before and after the wedding, there is usually a consultation, multiple emails back and forth, a pre wedding walk through or an engagement session.
Then the eight hours on the wedding day plus travel time to the wedding and back.
The next step a Vancouver Wedding Photographer will take is to spend time downloading, backing up files, blogging, and editing, for most professional Vancouver wedding photographers this is approximately 25 to 30 hours.
When all the time is added up a typical Vancouver Wedding Photographer will spend 30 to 40 hours per wedding.
Your photographer is more that just your photographer for the day they are typically looked to for advice on how the day will run and what vendors to hire, the wedding photographer will generally become your portrait photographer for life, someone who documents your growing family for generations.
