Planning and financing your dream wedding can be quite the adventure! From selecting the perfect venue, dress, favours, flowers, and of course, a talented wedding photographer, there are countless details to consider. Managing your budget can be a tricky task on its own, but keeping track of payment options and due dates for all these elements can feel like an absolute nightmare.
Don’t hesitate to have a conversation with your wedding photographer regarding their available payment options. Are they open to accommodating your individual financial situation by creating a personalised payment plan? Keep in mind that budgeting varies for everyone and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. We’ve had brides who prefer paying the full amount upfront as it’s a generous gift from a relative. On the other hand, most couples find our standard payment scheme for wedding photography quite satisfactory: an initial 10% booking fee followed by three equal payments leading up to the wedding date. Another alternative is choosing the 10% booking fee option along with six equal payments spread across six months, allowing you to manage smaller monthly instalments comfortably. These payment plans incur no additional charges; they simply provide you with the flexibility of pre-paying through instalments prior to your special day.
Basically, the earlier you book your wedding photographer, the more time they will most likely offer you to pay for the service. We will work with whatever is easiest for you.
When you reach out to us regarding your wedding photography, our form will prompt you to specify your desired coverage. This is where you can indicate how much of the day you would like us to capture. The majority of our couples opt for comprehensive coverage, starting from the bridal preparation all the way to the first dance, encompassing every special moment in between. Interestingly, this happens to be our most popular package. However, we also have couples who prefer a shorter duration of two to four hours, beginning from their arrival at the ceremony venue and concluding with group shots. Once we understand your preferences, we will create a personalised quote tailored just for you.
The quote presents a comprehensive breakdown of costs for wedding photography services with one photographer. Alongside this information, couples have the freedom to customise their package by opting for additional services like a second photographer or choosing from various album options. Moreover, they can decide whether to pay in monthly instalments or make a lump sum payment.
Once the couple has made their selections and accepted the quote, they will receive an invoice detailing all their chosen elements, including the booking fee (minimum 10%) and a clear timeline for future payments. Rest assured that our emailed invoices contain step-by-step instructions on how to settle payments; however, if any queries arise along the way, we are only a phone call away and ready to offer our enthusiastic support.
