Charlotte, North Carolina, is famous for its large wedding venues, but its residents are also famous for their affordable wedding photography.
The city is home to a plethora of wedding venues and is considered to be a great place to do weddings.
Wedding photographer John Clements has been the best-selling photographer in Charlotte, and he is doing a great job selling the city’s affordable wedding venues.
We asked John Clement about the benefits of having a cheap wedding venue in Charlotte.
John Clements says the cheapest wedding venue is a $10,000 wedding.
“You can get a wedding photographer in town who will be able to get the same number of clients as you would with a larger venue, but you’re going to have to spend less money,” John says.
“And, you have to take the time to look at the space, and the people that you’re getting, and really think about it and decide if you want to go with that type of venue.”
John Cules has been shooting weddings since 1999 and says that the cost of getting the wedding to take place has decreased significantly over the years.
“When I first started out, I was trying to do a $50,000 event for my husband and daughter, and now I can do a smaller wedding,” John tells us.
“The more you shoot weddings, the less expensive you are going to be.
You’re not going to pay for a wedding unless you get the right people.”
We asked John if he would ever recommend a location to anyone who wants to go cheap.
“I think it depends on the location, but if you go with a large venue, and if you’re not a wedding planner, I wouldn’t recommend it,” John said.
“It depends on what type of space you’re using.”
John says that he is not sure if this is the best way to go about it.
“My advice is, if you need a big wedding, get a big venue,” John told us.
“The only thing I would suggest for people who want to shoot weddings is to go out and get your friends, your family, and maybe even your closest friends and go to a big-name photographer who will do you the honor of shooting your wedding,” he said.
