Is it normal to pay photographers in full before the actual wedding day?

Just wondering if it is standard practice to pay vendors in full for services such as photography prior to the actual wedding day?

Hey there, it is quite common for this to happen. Most photographers and videographers have a ton of preparation and post production to do outside of the actual wedding day. The best practice is to put a deposit down (25-30%) and then pay the remaining on the day (to make sure they actually show up) so that the post production work is finished with the maximum efficiency.

Just to give you some numbers for post production works. A 300x images photo edit can be anywhere between 4-5 hours whilst a 5-6 minutes wedding video production can be anywhere from 10-20 hours of post production work. Of course this is taking the average count, as most companies have different practices to make themselves stand out, but it's a good number to go by.

Hope this helps you and your wedding organising planning.

PS: Don't choose cheap. Choose VALUE above all things.
