Welcome to wedding planning newly engaged couples!
When beginning to plan your wedding, it can be overwhelming to balance vendors, budgets, and plans. Especially after falling down a Pinterest rabbit hole!
One of the most important vendors to book first is your photographer/videographer. Many couples are often stumped during this critical part of the process. And we get it! It can be difficult to navigate all the styles available while also figuring out what you want and need for your own wedding.
While every wedding and photographer/videographer is different, that doesn’t mean you need to navigate it alone. That’s why we’ve put together this in-depth guide to give you insight into everything that impacts the final cost of your photography/videography!
KEY FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE THE COST OF YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEOGRAPHY
1. WHEN THE PARTY IS GOING DOWN: SAVE THE DATE
One of the most important factors influencing the cost of your wedding photography is one that many couples often don’t expect – the date of your wedding.
The best way to think of it is like airline tickets or hotels. During the holidays or peak season, there is an increased demand for a limited number of supply available, so prices go up. That’s why we always like to book our tickets to your destination wedding early
It’s exactly the same with weddings. The wedding season in Malaysia runs from May-October, and the most popular day is Friday & Saturday. That means there are a limited number of dates available for most photographers with many couples inquiring for those popular dates. So getting married on a Saturday in peak season means you may have a higher photography cost.
If you’re looking to save money on your wedding, getting married on a less popular date like a Friday or Sunday, choosing the off-season, or even having a weekday wedding. Relatives and friends often won’t mind, and that means you can often get better pricing with your dream photographer.
THE PRICE IS RIGHT: CALCULATING THE COST OF YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Wedding photography / Videography in the Kuala Lumpur or Penang area can range anywhere from RM1800 to RM15000. That may feel like a big range…and that’s because it is! Every wedding is different and all of the factors above can affect your total cost for photography / Videography .
And we’ll be real with you for a moment. Your wedding photography / Videography is an investment. This is a huge day that you are pouring much time, money, energy (and usually blood, sweat, and tears!) into. There is a difference between having the day simply documented versus the day being truly captured.
One of our couples said it best themselves:
“On a whirlwind of a day, being able to preserve these moments means everything to us. I’m not just saying this to be kind, we have not stopped talking about the quality of your work since we got our very first look. The difference between good photography and stellar photography is very obvious to us both now.”
