What should you include in your wedding photography package?

If you are starting out as a professional wedding photographer then one of the things which you should look at very carefully is the different package you will offer your clients. It is very important that you should take care while selecting the payment package for any wedding photography campaign (it should also include pre-wedding photography). While selecting the package, you should research very thoroughly about your competitors in the market to gauge what kind of package they are offering and how much money they are charging for any photo shoot. This will give you an idea of what is the price that some of the best candid wedding photographers in Goa (or any other city in India) are asking and what price band you have to fix to be competitive in this field.

In this article, we have taken the advice of the top wedding photographers in Udaipur and Goa to find out what are the important points that you must include in your wedding photography packages.













You can create multiple packages to cover different aspects of the wedding. You can put a premium package in which you will cover the entire wedding event. This will start from the engagement ceremony and end in the Vidai ceremony. It will include all other major programs that are associated with an Indian wedding like Mehendi ceremony, Sangeet ceremony, the actual marriage, and the Vidai. You can also include a pre-wedding photo shoot in this package so that your client gets the complete picture of their wedding celebration in one place. While this is very attractive, it is also very expensive. The reason being, you have to engage multiple photographers who will have to stay with your client for 3 to 4 days to ensure all the important aspects of the wedding ceremony is shot properly. Most of the time you will find that people are not looking to cover the entire event, but only want you to shoot the actual marriage ceremony or the pre-wedding photo shoot.

Most middle-class Indians do not want to shell out a huge amount of money to cover the entire marriage ceremony so for them, you can design different wedding photography packages that will suit their needs. You will find that in most wedding ceremonies there are normally to photographers one of them is a still photographer and the other is a videographer. If your client wants either the still photographer or videographer,  then you should design the package and its price accordingly.

On the other hand, if your client has to keep pockets and want to take pre-wedding photos in some exotic locale, then you should design the package in such a way that it will include the charges of the photographers, technicians, and others who are essential for any photo shoot campaign. Make sure the package is priced as per the number of days your photographers will be engaged in the photo shoot. If the photo shoot is out of your city, then make sure to include the cost of a hotel, transport, and food in your package.

It is important that you should provide a list of charges beforehand to your clients before they start negotiating for the price. This transparency will help you a great deal in averting any problems at the time of payments. It would also include your code will in the market.
