Wedding Photography Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the normal budget for a wedding photographer?

The average wedding photographer costs anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000, depending on the services rendered and how many hours are booked. At First & Port Photography, we find that the average couple spends about $3,500 on wedding photography and videography.

Wedding photographers may seem expensive at first glance. However, it's important to keep in mind that you typically get what you pay for when it comes to wedding pictures. If you go with the cheapest photographer in the area, you're not going to get the breathtaking photos you're looking for.

As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to allocate approximately 10% to 20% of your overall wedding budget. So if your overall budget is $20,000, you can expect to spend between $2,000 and $4,000 on wedding photography.

If you have a specific budget you want to stick to, we can sit down with you to find the best package or combination of services for your budget.

Is a photographer worth it for your wedding?

Some people wonder if wedding photographers are worth it or if they'd be better off just taking pictures on their cell phones. But hiring a photographer for your wedding is definitely worth it! Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event; having high-quality photos to cherish and remember the special moments is priceless.

At First & Port Photography, we have the skills, knowledge, and expertise necessary to capture your wedding day in the best way possible. This includes edits and retouches to ensure every detail is flawless. Even the best phone camera can't compare to the professional equipment, artistic vision, and techniques we bring to every wedding.

Your wedding day will be a blur of excitement and emotion. Having a professional photographer there to capture the moments will help you relive those memories for years to come.

Additionally, on your big day, the last thing you want to worry about is capturing every little moment. We believe you should experience your wedding to the fullest by living in the moment and letting us worry about the pictures.

How do I hire a good photographer?

When it comes to something as important as your wedding, not just any wedding photographer will do. If you are looking for a good wedding photographer in Jacksonville, FL, or the surrounding areas, you should keep a few things in mind.

First, it's important to always look at their portfolio to see examples of their previous work. This allows you to get an idea of their skill level and see whether their style matches your overall vision.

Before hiring a photographer, you should meet with them to see if you get along and feel comfortable with them. This also allows you to ask any questions, get to know them better, and discuss pricing packages.

Ultimately, you should trust your instincts and choose a photographer who makes you feel confident and comfortable.

Do you outsource or use Ai when editing photos or wedding films?

We never outsource anything when it comes to editing the photos or films. While we understand that many photographers and videographers do, we believe that it isn't a good idea because the people and or Ai were not there and did not experience the beauty of the wedding day firsthand.

Additionally, when a bride and groom hires us to capture and edit their wedding, they expect First & Port Photography to be the ones who edit the photos and or wedding film, not someone else or some thing. We believe the couple hired us for our unique style and expertise.
