NOTE:

Wedding photography is rewarding and being a part of such a joyful day is exhilarating but arguably the most difficult type of photography.

Wedding photography tends to costs more for lots of reasons including having the right personality to work with lots of people at a very emotional time over a long period of time, fast paced, long days, difficult lighting, excelling with uncertainty, the additional micro events & staging portraits, pressure of no 2nd chances, hauling equipment, specialist expertise and experience given the importance of the day, knowing where to be to get the shot at the right time without being intrusive to the couple, guests or videographers. Constantly observing for special moments and where appropriate making suggestions or guiding shots into the best light, backgrounds, framing… to help create natural, magical images to cherish.

After the event there is intense creative crafting during the post processing stage.

We need to allow for reduced demand in the colder months and also limit bookings to only one wedding per weekend for absolute attention, faster image delivery and frankly avoid burning out.

Professional Wedding Photographers typically charge between 2.5 to 10k. With Portraits In The Park you get premium quality, emotive, sculpted photos and a reliable, personable Wedding Photographer starting at $1450 for an 8 hour wedding package.

Booking well in advance could reduce the cost or if you honestly believe your Wedding Day is just a chilled out simple event more similar to a party see our Event Photography Packages and we can work something out.
The Photographers time on location is only one attribute that makes up an hourly rate. Almost the same amount of time is spent processing and grading the images. Equipment, training, travel, parking, superannuation, insurance, online services and other business related costs play a big part. On top of that there is the intangible cost of reliability, personability and unique creative style and flare, the last three points are ultimately why you would choose one Portrait or Wedding Photographer over another and for such a broad price discrepancy. Professional Wedding Photographers typically charge between 2.5 to 10k. With Portraits In The Park you get premium quality, emotive, sculpted photos and a reliable, personable Portrait or Wedding Photographer starting at $165 for a Family Portrait session and $1450 for an 8 hour Wedding Package with all photos included.

At Portraits In The Park our prices are cheaper then most other Professional Family Portrait or Wedding Photographers in the Sutherland Shire and service comparable or better. You can get an idea of our photography style from work we have provided to other clients here. To get an idea of our personability as fit for your Wedding Day we can meet up or offer 50% off a portrait session and if we photograph your wedding day we will refund the total cost of the portrait session.
Copyright ownership always remains with the Photographer. It just means when you engage our service you can use the photos for their intended purpose i.e.: Sharing on social media, getting prints and framing. Not using for advertising, financial gain or publishing. For example supplying photos to a celebrant or venue to use as a feature image in marketing their service. If you’re unsure just get in touch.
