Adding a second photographer on any package, something that has become popular throughout the wedding industry for an additional $795.00 adds much more variety to any photo package being multiple photographers capture various angles from different perspectives. Additionally, when hiring two photographers, one photographer can also attend the grooms house and pay significant attention to the groom and his groomsmen while the other photographer focuses on the bride and her bridesmaids. In wedding photography, the cost also increase depending on how many albums you desire or what size albums you select. In addition, to size, quantity of images makes a difference as well. Some brides and grooms purchase 100 images instead of 50 or 75. Therefore, prices vary according to how many images.

Packages with a large bridal album with custom designs and large parent albums and larger wall prints average from $3,000 and up in all wedding photo studios due to the fees to produce the work. Many clients tell us they receive prices of $8,000 to $10,000 and higher for great wedding photography and video from other studios.

A Trailer is a cost effective way to utilize unedited video coverage without a need to pay for a fully edited video for those budget conscious.

A growing new trend.... "Drone Aerial Cinematography" ~ Professional low altitude, cinemtography is being requested more and more on wedding video shoots. Videos with drone coverage is absolutely amazing and it is no wonder most brides are electing to hire a drone operator as a method to make their wedding video appear like a big screen production.

Cassarino Studios Drone operators are FAA licensed and insured

Custom photography packages are always created according to clients desires. Much like anything else, the more opulence a client desires, the higher the cost will rise. This is standard in the photography industry and the same at all studios. A Cassarino Studios sales representative will be most happy to discuss options.


If a client wants to hire a solo photographer, via the a la carte option to capture the moments of the day and purchase images without a wedding album this is often called or referred to as: "time and talent". With the a la carte or time and talent package (usually starting around $2,195 in most studios) the bride and groom can save upfront cost by taking possession of all of the images outright, and upgrading a custom designed album in the future.

When lighting assistants, and second shooters are requested, photography studios charge additional fees in order to pay their craftsman the necessary fees to produce the final product.

Parent albums can add an additional cost depending on how many images and what size.

Lighting is another important factor. Very often professional photographers, require "a team" to produce the assignment properly. Therefore, many brides and grooms, opt to add on the additional cost of a lighting assistant in order to obtain a stylish or more opulent final result that only off camera or additional lights produce.

Prices for wedding photography, much like anything else can rise depending on how opulent you want the images to appear. Very often, one photographer does not have ample time to capture all of the photographs a bride may desire. Hence, why many brides feel more comfortable hiring a second shooter to capture various angles.
