Wedding Photography Trends through History
Weddings have transformed over the last century from being a small-scale intimate celebration shared by family to a multi-billion dollar industry.
According to a WeddingBells.ca survey of 2,309 Canadians in 2014, couples nearing or just coming away from the big day indicated they believed the average expected cost of a Canadian wedding is about $22,429 or $27,899 with a honeymoon. [Source: Slice]
It's hard to pin down exact numbers. They vary a lot between socio-economic groups. However, the most consistent stat I have read is that even since the 1930s couples have been shelling-out about 25% of their annual income for their celebrations.
As the wedding itself has evolved, photography styles and expectations have also see a tremendous shift.
