How much does good wedding photography cost?

When considering Wedding Photo Costs…you may ask yourself,  How Much is wedding photography?

Perhaps “How much is a photographer for a wedding” shouldn’t be the first question you ask.  “How much grief will the WRONG photographer cause?” may be a better way to look at it.


Wedding Photography Packages

We avoid GRIEF.  At our photo studio in Chesapeake Beach Maryland, JAX wedding photography packages can be configured to fit your unique needs. Our starting cost of 5295 (PRE-Discounts and special offers, of course…ASK US!) always include a get to know you/engagement shoot (so our first shooting experience with you is BEFORE the wedding), up to 9 hours of our team’s unique coverage on the “day of” your wedding, and a custom printed 30 page Italian Wedding album. With JAX full collections, most of our clients invest between 6595 to 9000.

Investment in Wedding Photography (or How Much Does all of this Cost?)

Some determining factors for overall Wedding Photo Costs?

  • The size and scope of the wedding or custom event.  Smaller elopements and backyard family gatherings and bar-b-ques are not the same as elaborate 350 guest DC Hotel extravaganzas.
  • Extra stuff…The type of art our couples would like for their homes and families, say parent albums, or several larger display pieces, or high resolution corrected digital file delivery.
  • Highly desirable mid-summer and early fall weekend wedding dates will figure directly into slightly higher costs.
  • Reasonable at cost travel fees (a full tank of gas for that Philly elopement, or tolls or airport parking, etc)

Small elopements and ceremonies locally can begin as low as 1595 for weekday coverage.  Full sized local weekend weddings begin at 5295 for a full experience in wedding coaching, styling, photography, art planning, day of coverage, and printed custom art. Destination weddings are by their nature completely custom and you should call us to talk about them!

FAQ’s about JAX PHOTOGRAPHY and Wedding Photography Packages

How long have you been in the business of professional wedding photography?

Jacqueline and Jay are a husband-and-wife team that has been photographing weddings together since 2003. If you’re keeping score, that’s 21+ years! We both started as NEWS photographers in 1995 (shooting on something called Kodak film…)

Is 'X amount of dollars' alot for a wedding photographer?

What are YOUR wedding photography packages?

Our pricing starts at 5295. HOWEVER Small elopements and ceremonies locally can begin as low as 1595 for weekday coverage. EVERY wedding is different. A laid-back casual backyard barbeque is not the same as a 350 guest, DC hotel wedding/reception and that’s not the same as a 3 day destination Caribbean weekend elopement. Creating customized wedding packages to meet almost every situation is something that we LOVE working on.
