What are the average wedding photographer salaries?

I asked my friend who does photography well, but on the side to take pictures for my wedding in hopes of saving a bit of money. Well I think her price is outrageous, but when I brought it up, she was insulted and said it was already really low for the industry standard!

The upper end average is about $4,000, a median average is about $2,000. Much depends on where you live. What is reasonable in an expensive city like New York City might seem outrageous in a small midwestern town. Wedding photography can easily range from $4,000 or more -- to free!

The salary depends on full time and part time status as well as how many jobs they take, they charge anywhere from 500 to 10,000 dollars a wedding.

For a professional wedding photographer, including framed and unframed prints of various sizes, it generally costs between $800 and $2,500, depending on what you want and if video is included. It can cost about the same as the photographer as it does to purchase negatives from them. A non-professional photographer shouldn't charge anything more then $300-$800.

She is right. Wedding photographers are very expensive. Even a budget wedding photographer like your friend can cost around $1000. The average wedding photographer makes around $2,000 or $3,000 a wedding. Upscale photographers can cost in the range of $3,000 to $5,000, and it might even cost $10,000 or over for the best in the business.

Wedding photographer's charge high prices for taking pictures, especially of weddings. My niece paid $1200 for her wedding pictures. The photographer has usually a set fee they require to take the picture and then you can select what you want in pictures - quantity, album, size, etc. and reduce the output you would have to pay them. Check around tho.

It depends on how well known the photographer is and how much experience he or she has. You can expect to spend anywhere from $1,500 on a small package that doesn't come with many prints, to over $5,000. If your wedding is out of town, expect to pay more.
