February 27, 2020

Each yeah Your Perfect Wedding Photographer conducts a wedding photography industry survey for statistical analysis. Over 300 professional (full time) wedding photographers took part for the latest survey, revealing some interesting points to note.

  • The average number of weddings captured year is 28
  • The average spend on photography is £1590
  • Just 4% of a professional photographer's time is spent taking photos
  • Instagram has become the top social media platform for bookings
  • The average number of enquiries received per year is 110

This is not too dissimilar to my own experience as a professional wedding photographer. I would love to see my time spent photographing to be more than just 4% but let's not forget that this is a full time career with admin and marketing and continual training. Not to mention post-processing, which takes-up 55% of a photographer's time.

I'm also a little surprised that Instagram has become the social media platform of choice for the majority of couples booking their photographer.
