Do wedding photographers/videographers charge more on New Year's Eve?

Wondering if there are surcharges for weddings on special dates like this. We're thinking of a NYE wedding.

Some might. We don't. My advice though would be to avoid the date as many vendors in general will be unavailable due to family commitments. A higher risk that people may also pull out if you have booked a cheaper vendor. Logistics at that time of year can be hard to find replacments if vendors do the wrong thing.

This one is choice which differs between each company you enquire with and what they have on or booked. Cre8tve Moments doesn't charge more for public holidays, you will just need to double check our availability when booking with us.

It depends of Videographer skills.

Most known videographers in the world are booked for special days like this and clients usually pay more just to make sure to reserve the spot.

You could always find cheaper options, but most of people who spend less, complain the most.
