It is no doubt that while planning your wedding can be something you’ve always dreamed about, it can also be a little stressful once you dive in. Figuring out your budget and how to allocate it is one of the first steps in your planning process, and it can also be one of the toughest in planning for your celebration.
According to TheKnot.com couples should plan to spend around 10-15% of their budget on wedding photography. This also applies to videography – meaning an additional 10-15% of your overall wedding budget. If your overall budget is $30k, then you can expect to spend $3-4.5k on each vendor. These values may also go up pending importance and your overall wedding vision. So, if photography is something you rank very high, then you may decide to invest a little more in this area and cut costs someplace else.
Tip: It is also common that if you bundle photo & video together you will likely save a little bit of money by booking thru one vendor.
