How to Find Inexpensive Wedding Photographers

Finding an inexpensive wedding photographer does not necessarily mean you have to hire an inexperienced photographer. However, it does require you to do some research and negotiating in order to get the best possible price from the photographer. Here are a few tips to get you started in your quest to find a reputable yet inexpensive wedding photographer.

1. You should get estimates and price quotes from several photographers in your area. This way you can have a little bit of leverage when you begin your negotiations.

2. Start looking online for coupons to your local photographers. Once you have a few coupons for different photographers you should get a price quote. Make sure you do not tell the company you have a coupon, save that for when you are signing the contract.

3. Negotiate with the photographer. If there are things in your package that you do not need, offer to relinquish those for a reduced price.

4. Keep in mind the number of years a particular company has been in business. Normally, you can expect to pay more money for a highly experienced wedding photographer. But don't feel that you can not negotiate with a veteran photographer to get an inexpensive wedding photographer.

When you are in negotiations with the photographer, you need to be realistic with your expectations. Do not think you are going to be able to get the price reduced by several hundred dollars. That would be offensive to even ask the photographer. They are providing a necessary service and should be compensated for it.

You have to approach the situation with class and style without making yourself look like you are trying to get something for nothing. However, you can approach the photographer without causing him or her to feel offended by simply leaving the ball in their court.

For example, let them know you are not interested in a particular part of the package and ask if there can be a change in price if you do not want the full package.

With these tips you should be able to find the perfect inexpensive wedding photographer for your wedding. Don't get discouraged if you do not get the massive discount you are hoping for, instead be ecstatic that you got a discount at all. At this point, every penny you can save on wedding related expenses is a penny more in your purse.
