Don’t go overboard with the wedding photo album.
You will want to keep things simple especially if you don’t want to end up spending way too much money on your professional wedding photography services. The simpler your wedding photo album will turn out to be, the less money you will have to end up spending for it. This is some extra money that you can spend on the other needs that you may have for the wedding. It is either that or you can opt to reallocate the money on other products and services that you might want to include in the wedding photography package that you are building up with that particular professional photographer instead.
One option that you can take into account is a magazine type of wedding photo album.
This kind of photo album costs considerably less money and will not be as ridiculously expensive compared to the gilt edged and leather bound wedding photo albums that you are quite used to seeing all of the time. A modest photo album would be the wisest thing for you to go. Think about it. It is the kind of thing that makes perfect sense. You still get the best wedding photos that you could possibly get your hands on and at the same time, you aren’t missing out on the significant memento of getting an album to collate your photos together. And then of course, there is the possibility of a digital wedding photo album that you can upload, download, and reprint at any point in time and in any way that you may see fit.
Hire out your professional wedding photographer for less time if it is possible for you to go ahead and do so.
Wedding photographers cost a lot of money. And given the fact that this particular cost is based on professional services, it will be expensive if you have a professional photographer on board far longer than you would probably need. Take this into advisement all throughout the time that you are working things out. And besides, you only need a professional wedding photographer during the most important parts of your wedding anyway so you don’t have to stress yourself out too much with the thought of always having to extend the work hours of your photographer.
Earn discounts from the referrals that you bring to your wedding photographer’s way.
You can definitely get generous price cuts from something like this because of the fact that wedding photographers are always keen on looking forward to getting business in the future. This is the kind of thing that you can definitely play up to your advantage. Tell him how many contacts you have in your pipeline for people who might be marrying soon or for friends and family who might be planning out a wedding in the near future and who might need the services of a really great wedding photographer. Your word will be as good as good so you should make it a point to save as much money as you can by gaining discounts out of the deal that you map out with him at some point or so.
