The process sometimes leads to “sticker shock” when prices are discovered.  While it is true that you are paying for the time and talent of these professionals on your important day, it is also important to understand and appreciate the work that comes AFTER the event. The photos below, by Andy Mars Photography, show some of the effects that can turn a photo into a piece of art.

Wedding, Bar Mitzvah & Event Photography Costs To Factor In:

  • Pre-work involved with planning for the event, including consultation, shot lists, scheduling, referrals, and follow-up meetings.
  • On the big day there is setup, breakdown, and travel
  • Postproduction: In addition to the time spent at your event, there is 20-40 hours spent downloading and backing up images, editing, retouching, development, adjustments, and using creativity to create exceptional photos.
  • Album Creation: Consultation, Design, Manufacturing, Layout Proofing, Revisions
