When you think of San Antonio, you may daydream of eating spicy Tex-Mex on The River Walk, cheering from the sidelines of the rodeo, or taking in the historic sights of the Alamo.


There’s always something new to experience. From one weekend to the next, you will find unique local exhibits, from live country music scenes to food festivals and cultural activities.


Because of this, it’s no surprise that it’s in the top 20 most visited cities in the nation.


But when we think of San Antonio? We think of weddings with a whole lotta’ Texan flair!

How much does wedding photography cost in San Antonio?

One of the top questions that we hear from brides and grooms around the great state of Texas is how much wedding creative services should cost and what they actually cost.


If you’re planning a wedding here, you’re likely beginning to think through your finances and trying to figure out what wedding photography costs in San Antonio.


When you start to break down your expenses, you may find that wedding photographs and/or videos can become a significant part of the budget. According to The Knot, an average of 12% of a wedding budget typically goes to photography and videography.


Getting married in San Antonio? We estimate that wedding photography and videography will cost anywhere between $2,000 and $4,000 for each individual service.


If you’ve done a quick Google search about wedding expenses, you may find quotes for creative services that highly vary. Like with many wedding details, keep in mind that there are often hidden fees which get added to the total cost later in your planning process.


If you do find quotes that come in lower than our estimate, make sure to do thorough research about what’s included in an offering. For example, this could include finding out if you receive full rights to the assets, and how much cost will be added for prints or copies.
