Like the question, what do the girls who say that wedding photos are not important think? If the financial foundation is sufficient, do they still choose not to shoot?
In fact, going to different places to take wedding photos, the cost or budget is very different. Based on my own experience, I would like to briefly talk about the most popular cities for domestic travel photography, the main style of shooting, and the approximate cost. There are mainly islands: Sanya, Qingdao, Xiamen and Dalian. Comprehensive (with mountains and water): Dali, Lijiang, Lugu Lake, Shangri-La, Xinjiang, Qinghai, Tibet. Other categories: Chengdu, Beijing. (There may be memory problems and omissions) The styles mentioned below are based on the mainstream of the market, and the prices are average prices, except for those who have friends or relatives doing this business. (Because of different relationships and different profit margins, I believe everyone can do it. Understand) Except for large-scale chain studios nationwide (because the style of large-scale chain studios is basically based on the aesthetics most acceptable to the public, it is rarely adjusted based on the destination city. The price is higher because the shop rents are higher, the decoration is more luxurious, and the advertising costs Countless, so the price is relatively higher than the average price of the city) First, let’s talk about the islands. On the whole, Sanya has the best natural conditions among the current island travel cities, with an annual average temperature of 25 degrees and a maximum temperature of 32 degrees. The lowest temperature is around 18 degrees. Suitable for shooting all year round, the main shooting elements are beaches, sea water, reefs, coconut groves, and some artificially constructed bases. Compared with the other three cities, it has the highest quality of seawater. There are many scenic spots to choose from, such as Sanya Bay and Dadonghai at the beginning, and then various five-A-level scenic spots such as Dadongtian, Wuzhizhou Island, and West Island, etc., there are also high-end hotel gathering areas such as Qingshui Bay and Haitang Bay. The overall style of shooting in Sanya over the past few years is still based on the atmospheric beauty of the islands, plus some Internet celebrity shooting methods that have emerged in the popularity of Douyin in the past two years. The style depends on this preference and does not elaborate too much. However, the shooting methods of internet celebrities are not very recommended. For example, pour a pot of water soaked with flowers on a person, and then create a very large effect in the later stage. In fact, most of them are pursuing a visual impact effect, but if you really want to shoot, you have to A photo with this effect is at least 200 to 800, because there are a lot of post-processing things, mainly because a lot of things are added. If it is not processed well, it will be fake. Let’s talk about the price of a trip to Sanya. It doesn’t include airfare, boarding and lodging. Basically, it should be around 15K. Don’t believe in Sanya, it’s either a very poor level or invisible consumption. heap. In terms of prices in Sanya, the average price of a house price of 30,000 or more would cost around 800 for a barbecue for five or six people. Four or five thousand would definitely not be able to shoot. Don’t be greedy for petty and cheap. It will affect your mood. The big one is not necessary. If the budget is not that high and you want to take pictures of the islands, you can consider Dalian and Qingdao. These two cities belong to the northern cities, and the climate and environmental conditions are restricted. Generally speaking, the price is at least two-fifths cheaper, because it is Sanya. Taking away many customers, the customers in Dalian and Qingdao are not much left. In addition, the prices are generally cheap. The local permanent population is large and it is easier to recruit workers, so the price will not be too high. Of course, this The natural conditions of the two cities will also be worse, mainly reflected in the climate, air quality, blue sky and white clouds, and the sea and beaches are not as delicate and clean as Sanya, so the budget for these two cities can be controlled at 8K to 10K. Let’s talk about Xiamen. Xiamen’s travel photography was developed very early. I didn’t compare him with Dalian and Qingdao because the style of Xiamen is different from that of the above three cities. The overall shooting is mainly literary and fresh, and the atmospheric and beautiful style is relative. It is relatively small, basically low saturation, and the price is not much different from Dalian Qingdao. It is suitable for newcomers who like Japanese art and freshness, but the quality of seawater is really gray and black, so it may also be caused by this aspect. Shooting style. Comprehensive category: Dali and Lijiang are popular cities in the past two years, but the shooting styles are not very the same. The reason why they are classified into the comprehensive category is because the shooting elements are relatively rich. These two cities have their own waters. Dali is Erhai. The area is relatively wide, about 150 kilometers around the sea, and the scenery can be photographed along the way. The mountain view is the Cangshan mountain that stretches for dozens of kilometers, as well as ancient towns, wetlands, characteristic buildings and some constantly updated man-made bases. The waters of Lijiang are relatively narrow, that is, Lashihai, Blue Moon Valley and there are some artificial pools at the foot of the snow mountain. However, the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is more beautiful, but it is only recommended to shoot at the foot of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, because the snow mountain is more than 4,000 above sea level and newcomers in the plain area. Shooting up the mountain is easy to cause high reflections, and there is a certain danger. Another thing is that it is actually snow when you go up to the top of the mountain. There is not much difference between shooting snow and it is of little significance. Lijiang also has an ancient town, and the man-made base is basically renewed every year. The annual average temperature of these two cities is about 22 degrees, the highest temperature is 28 degrees, and the lowest temperature is about 14 degrees (the above temperatures are daytime). They are suitable for shooting all year round. The temperature in Lijiang is about 1000 meters higher than Dali, so the temperature To be five or six degrees lower. In Dali, there are basically green plants in the four seasons, just how many, and there are more flowers. The blue sky and white clouds are basically standard for the four seasons. In winter, you can also take pictures of Jesus light. In previous years, you can also feed seagulls to take wedding photos at the Erhai Lake. There are small animals. The photos will be more natural, but it is said that feeding will not be allowed this year, and the seagulls are worried about the infection caused by the new crown virus, and the control is stricter. In winter Lijiang can also take pictures of snow-capped mountains, but the temperature at the foot of the snow-capped mountains is low throughout the year, and strong perseverance is required to take photos in winter. Because of the cultural environment and natural selection in Dali (mainly because of its slow pace of life and relatively low commercial atmosphere), most of the studios here are based on entrepreneurial young photographers, and most of the shooting styles are Japanese, literary and fresh or documentary. The employees in Lijiang are basically Sanya branches or those who have opened stores in Sanya. The commercial competition is too high, so the style will be closer to Sanya. The style is mainly atmospheric, fresh and natural style will be less, and the price will be less. It is reasonable for these cities to be between 8K and 12K a day. Although Shangri-La and Lugu Lake are not far from Dali and Lijiang, there are almost no direct flights from cities outside the province. They can only transit within the province. The high-speed has not yet been opened, so it takes about 5 hours on the road, which leads to long shooting time. It will take at least two to three days. In addition, there are few studios and photo studios in Shangri-La and Lugu Lake, and the competition is relatively small, so the price will be higher. The style is basically based on travel style and ethnic style, supplemented by atmosphere or literature. It mainly depends on which city you are looking for. If it is Lijiang, the style is more atmospheric or travel style, if it is Dali’s style, it is more literary. The price ranges from 12K to 20K, usually two to three days, one day shooting is basically impossible under the current traffic conditions. Unless some freelance photographers take the order and drive the newcomer by themselves, there may be situations in which the contract is not binding and cannot be completed. Choose carefully. The three provinces of Xinjiang, Qinghai and Tibet, I think the natural scenery conditions are very good, and there are many shooting elements and styles, but the disadvantage is that the temperature difference is large in the four seasons, and the energy-saving shooting in autumn and winter is relatively difficult to complete. Although it is possible to shoot snow scenes, the temperature of tens of degrees below zero is not acceptable to ordinary people. There are also many shooting elements in these cities, including mountains, lakes and hills, Populus euphratica forests, characteristic buildings and characteristic costumes, and Xinjiang also has deserts. In these three cities, it is recommended to shoot from June to September, the temperature is more comfortable, and there are more types of food. Ili, Xinjiang, Qinghai Lake, and Lhasa, Tibet have a lot of sceneries that can be photographed, but the distances are relatively long, often hundreds of kilometers, and the shooting starts in at least two days, so the cost is basically around 20K. Moreover, the transportation cost is relatively high, and the round-trip time is relatively long, so it is more suitable for newcomers who want to take photos of small scenic spots with sufficient vacations and sufficient funds. Finally, let’s talk about Chengdu and Beijing. These two were not actually travel cities before, because of the limited natural conditions, there is no blue sky and white clouds, and they are not cities that people yearn for tourism. But in the past two years, some newcomers from other cities will choose these two places to shoot. The main reason is that the advertising shops are relatively fierce, and the two cities themselves want to squeeze into the travel because of the poor natural conditions If you take a share of the city, the frequency of technology development and sample shooting is quite fast, so overall the level of technical staff is fairly good. In terms of price, the average price in Beijing is higher than that in Chengdu. After all, the price is high. Beijing basically needs to shoot at 10K to 12K in a day. In Chengdu, 6K to 8K is almost the same. No matter how high the price is, there is no need to choose these two places. After all, the basic conditions are not very good. If you want to go to Chengdu for food, you can consider shooting by the way.
