These two were so much fun! We went up to Idaho City one cold (but sunny) day to do engagement pictures in the mountains. I’m always up to photograph adorable couples in the mountains. As an Idaho engagement photographer, I love using the available nature as a backdrop, and Idaho is the perfect place for it. This was only about an hour outside of Boise. Although the icy roads slightly scared me, and there’s no phone service for a good portion of the trip, it’s all worth it, as you can see from these photos!
So, when I was getting married, a seemingly unjustifiable cost was engagement photos. You get enough pictures on your wedding day, right??? As a Boise and Los Angeles wedding photographer, I’ve seen couples do them, and do without them. So, here are the pros and cons of doing engagement pictures.
Hannah found me on The Knot. When she contacted me, I was so excited. I felt her kindred spirit immediately. Part of my silver wedding photography package includes free engagement photography. I love getting to know my couples before their wedding day. It makes it much easier to communicate on the day of the wedding.
So the other day a friend asked me about being a wedding photographer in Boise for another friend’s wedding. “That would be awesome!” I said, then asked about things like date and location. I happened to be booked for that day, but I asked about her budget, thinking I could refer another photographer in Idaho based on the budget.
This was a question I always wondered… sometimes I still wonder. As far as cost goes, our wedding photography and videography is one of the cheapest QUALITY options. There are quite a few rookie people out there who will do it for cheaper or free, but it’s usually because they aren’t any good and can’t get anyone to hire them. So here are 4 reasons wedding photography costs what it does.
