£1,520 is what the average couples in the UK spent on photography when they were planning their big day in 2015.

The figure is from a survey conducted with over 400 professional wedding photographers in the UK who also said that on average, they captured 28 weddings a year and more were Canon shooters rather than Nikon fans. 

There are no surprises really that equipment was listed as the biggest expense for a wedding photographer and that editing photos took up most of their time, with most spending around 8-12 hours adjusting photos. Most who were questioned (46%) said they had less than 5 years experience working in the wedding photography industry while the percentage of those who have 10 years or more experience only made up 15% of the total who took part in the survey. 

As well as questions, those surveyed were also asked to give their overall opinion on the industry to which most agreed it was hard work but amazing to do. Although, it's an industry that's still growing in competitiveness and marketing as well as the skills needed to run a business successfully are just as important as been able to take good photos. 

"If you cannot market yourself and run a business you will not succeed in the industry," said Stonelock Photography.
