According to Zola, “The average cost of a wedding photographer is between $1,500 and $3,000. Rates vary depending on factors such as location, wedding length, the photographer’s experience level, and the types of services you want. The cost of wedding videography can vary even more widely than wedding photography—anywhere from $500 to $5,000+.
On average, couples will spend about $2,000 on their wedding video, but keep in mind that a number of factors (video length, number of videographers, and time on-site) can push that number up or down.”
The Zola estimates provided are national averages and the prices will vary based on where you’re located.
