Your wedding is unique, so your pricing may reflect that. We can discuss timelines and details for a more accurate price, but this will give you a good idea. *This pricing does not include state taxes which are dependent on the location of your wedding.
A Word About Albums:
Albums come in various styles and sizes are available to fit every budget. Most clients spend between $900 -$1500. Parent albums are also available. Coffee-table Style Books are available at a lower price point dependent on style, cover materials and number of pages. I can show you samples when we meet.
Q.Will you have a second photographer with you?
A. I can, however, I usually shoot solo. If we decide your event is very complex or large, we can engage a second.
Q. Why should we consider an Engagement Session?
A. An engagement session will help with any uncomfortable worries about being photographed. We can practice how you will stand in your dress clothes together and I can discover what expressions or angles are most flattering to you both. This is a very important part of our preparation together. Please consider an Engagement as it will help put you at ease and help you know what to expect. Besides, who does not want even more photographs of themselves in love?
Q. What makes you different from other wedding photographers?
A. Every person with a camera has their own vision and style. I work to capture you and your loved ones as you are, in a documentary and artistic style. I am looking for the ‘moments’. I work to be unobtrusive as possible while getting the shots you want. If you like my style from what you see on this site, let’s talk and see if we can work together.
Q. How can we book you?
A. The best way is to speak on the phone, Skype or meet in person. We can discuss the details that you are planning for your day, answer any questions you may have and get to know each other. If we feel that we can work together, then we sign a contract and pay a retainer of at least $500 to hold your date.
Q. How does payment work?
A. I accept check or credit card. You may pay in installments or in one lump sum. What works well for you is fine with me as long as payment is complete no later than 1 month prior to the wedding day.
Q. When will we get our images?
A. I will post to the online gallery within 2 weeks. If I have your permission to post a few images to social media I will do that within 2 days of the wedding. If you are local, you may come by the studio and see your images here, up close and personal. All photos posted online will be edited, color corrected and print ready. For album orders I take time to further enhance the images tastefully. (artistic crops, further retouching, etc)
Q. Why should I order an Album?
A. This is the best way to preserve your wedding day photos and portraits. Albums are custom printed with beautiful covers to choose from and archival for longevity. They will preserve the memories of the day in print for generations to come. Digital images lost in a computer hard drive will not be enjoyed. I can show you samples when we meet.
*Note: You may order your album when signing your contract OR in a separate agreement after the wedding day – which makes a wonderful first anniversary gift!
Q. How long will our images be in the online gallery?
A. You will be able to see and share them from the gallery for one year. You will have the finished digital files when all edits are done-3-4 months after wedding or with delivery of your wedding album. If there are any image files you need before then, just ask and I will make them available. For instance, for a wedding website or notices in the paper, etc.
