Seattle Wedding Photographer Pricing Guide

Should a wedding photographer post their prices on their website? Many photographers have asked my opinion on why I post my pricing on my website, so I decided to do a little “for photographers” post this week! My answer is and will always be: do whatever works for you and your clientsI  put my pricing information on my website and blog for easy access for two main reasons.

1. Being upfront. I am a “what you see is what you get” type of person. I have a genuine soul that cringes at the thought of trying to be someone I’m not, so I do what works for me. I believe in being upfront about the products and services that I offer because , I think being upfront about pricing is important. I don’t typically invest in something important to me without a general budget or running some numbers, so I don’t expect my clients to either. I know some photographers who would prefer to chat with the client or meet them before divulging their wedding pricing information, but I’ve tried it and that just doesn’t work for me right now. I prefer for my potential clients to have access to it if they would like!

2. Communication. When I post my pricing on my website I am clearly communicating what I offer. It’s a great way to set the expectations and start communicating with my couples right away. In addition to this at-a-glance pricing guide, I have a more detailed, 13-page pdf that I send out to clients that describes each offering in more detail. I also have information in a wedding + lifestyle magazine that offers yet again more information, tips, tricks and FAQ!

Pricing Template by Design By Bittersweet. (Note: get this pricing guide absolutely FREE at my 2015 workshop! Seattle June 29 +30) Go check them out! I’m all about curating a lovely experience for my clients from start to finish. In general I like everything to be upfront, simple & clean. My style is all about story telling with a dreamy, romantic, fine art feel. Design By Bittersweet wedding photography templates align well with my style because they allow my pictures to do the talking, while at the same time providing information in a clear & concise way for my clients. They’re super easy to use and 100% editable. Plus, Rose & Thomas  are just great to work with!

The sunshine in Seattle has been so refreshing! I got myself outside and photographed some inspiration for the Seattle bohemian bride. Emily’s wild and free bridal look is just effortless and beautiful. I love her natural, soft wavy hair  with all tones of red and brown! A few wild flowers and a bouquet of eucalyptus are easy and beautiful. The boho bride look is perfected with  a flowy, natural wedding dress from Free People.

I photographed this session in the sun with my friend Jenna who JUST MOVED TO SEATTLE! (My incessant begging finally paid off!) Are you a photographer who would like to connect? I’m hosting an intimate, personal workshop here in Seattle on June 29 & 30. Click here for more details. I’d love to meet you!

    I am obsessed with this shoot! I think you do such a wonderful job capturing moments like this and just how clean and beautiful the bride looks. For my own wedding I want that same feel of clean and clear and highlighting her face and hair and how simplistic it all looks. You are incredible! I love her hair on this especially.ReplyCancel

    I SO wish I could do this this year! Maybe next year, though!! :)ReplyCancel

I just celebrated my 5th anniversary from when I got my first DSLR camera! I knew I wanted to be a photographer from the moment I opened that box. It has been a wonderful 5 year journey as a photographer, and I wouldn’t trade my experiences for the world. I’ve had the best clients, met incredible people, documented hear-warming stories, sad stories, beautiful stories, interesting ones… I’ve photographed amazing people, events, details– you name it.
