Malay weddings are not cheap. It definitely isn’t as cheap as some might have come to believe in recent times. In most cases, a couple has to work the budget creatively around the big-ticket items like the baju, decorations, pelamin, catering, Mak Andam fees, to the point that photography might take a back seat.
Having said that, in terms of pricing, one needs to be realistic about what to expect within a specific budget. Today, wedding photography packages in the market can range from $400+ to a whopping $5000+ a pop.
The main differences between the packages are:
1) hours the photographer commits to your majlis
2) professionalism and experience
3) the amount of deliverables they provide within the packages.
So what can you expect for $400?
