As I mentioned in my post “Why is wedding photography so expensive?” some photographers will charge $2,000 for 8 hours of coverage, and then the next one $20,000. You can probably find someone on Craigslist willing to do it for $400. Beware….they may be shooting with an iPhone, as we have actually seen this happen before. They also may not show up on the day of your wedding, I’ve actually seen this happen half a dozen times. Just because something is “cheap” doesn’t mean it’s a good deal.

Maybe you have narrowed your search down to two photographers. You love both their work and their pricing is very similar. How do you decide between the two?

Here, RisingSky lead photographer Sophia Hyde explains what factors other than price you should consider when hiring a wedding photographer.
