Wedding Photography Packages Sydney

There is little that’s more variable in the wedding industry than the cost of a wedding photographer.  Not only is the range of available packages huge, but also the quality and value offered by each photographer is specific to their own style and experience. 

Because of this, the cost of wedding photography varies widely across the city and for many customers it’s difficult to know which packages offer value for money. 

In 2024, the average cost of wedding photography in Sydney is $3,890 for a standard 6 hour package including all high resolution digital images. More than 60% of Sydney wedding photographers charge between $2,800 and $4,600 for this basic 6 hour package.

How much money you invest in a wedding photography package will depend on your total wedding budget, your required coverage and the value you place on having high quality wedding images. 

On average, Australian's spend 10% of their wedding budget on a professional wedding photographer. So if your total wedding budget is $30k you'll start with a wedding photography budget of $3,000. But you can adjust your spend on wedding photos according to your preferences and average up for a high end photographer or down to save for other expenses.

Standard Wedding Photography Packages

In 2024, wedding photography packages in Sydney have become more streamlined making it easier to compare one photographer's prices with another. Most basic photography packages now include a single photographer who provides a specified number of hours of continuous wedding day coverage and delivers a set of high resolution images to print and share online.

Standard wedding photography packages in Sydney do not include a wedding album and only around 50% of wedding photographers offer album design. Most photography studios that sell wedding albums are in the average to higher price brackets and the albums themselves typically start at $1,500 for a high quality 22 sided spread. 

In addition to wedding albums, Sydney photographers offer a number of add-ons available with standard photography packages. Additional camera operators can be added to wedding packages and are typically priced from $700. Extra hours of photographic coverage will usually cost between $200 - $400 per hour and specialist equipment such as drones can add several hundred dollars to your invoice. 

Small Wedding Photography Packages

The last two years have seen a noticeable increase in the availability of elopement photography packages right across Australia. Wedding photographers in Sydney have responded to changing consumer demand and now regularly offer small photography packages as part of their standard offerings.

The price of small wedding photography packages in Sydney starts at under $1,000 and comes with all the standard inclusions as their larger sibling. Elopement wedding photographers work in a different environment to larger weddings hence we recommend picking a specialist elopement photographer if you're planning on running into the sunset.

Pre-Wedding Photography Packages

Pre wedding photography packages have also become more prevalent in recent years as more and more couples opt for engagement shoots and adventure sessions. The average price of pre wedding photography packages in Sydney ranges from $500 to $1,200 and these sessions are sometimes refunded if you book your wedding photographs with the same studio.

Booking your preferred wedding photography package

Ready to find & book a Sydney wedding photographer? Competition for the best Sydney wedding photographers is stiff with most award winning creatives booking out 12 months in advance. Affordable wedding photographers who offer high quality candid and natural wedding photos also tend to book our quickly, so if you're in either of these markets you'll need to enquire early.

If you're wanting to book one of Sydney's best wedding photographers we highly recommend taking the time to share a little about yourselves & your wedding along with your enquiry. To increase your chances of booking your preferred wedding photographer, show them you value their work by saying what you love about their images. 

How to get a discount on the wedding photography price

If your preferred Sydney photographer offers wedding packages that are priced a little out of your budget don't be shy to ask whether they can make a package to suit your budget. This approach creates an open and honest discussion with your wedding photographer that values their time and effort while allowing them to empathise with your situation.
