It is my hope that your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life, and I consider the ability to capture the day as it unfolds for you to look back on a great honor. Except in extreme circumstances, weddings will not be scheduled without a face-to-face consultation with the bride and/or groom. It’s going to be a long day, and we will be spending a lot of time together. It is important to me that we meet in advance so we can discuss your hopes and dreams for the day and what you would like to see result from my coverage. I’m happy to answer any questions you have about your wedding coverage at our consultation.
In sticking with my “I don’t do packages” philosophy that I have applied to my portrait sessions from the beginning, I have eliminated wedding coverage packages. Instead I offer of you this: Wedding coverage is now $300 an hour with a minimum of four hours coverage. At your consultation we will discuss the parts of your wedding day that you want covered and determine how many hours should be necessary for complete and effective coverage. I don’t really love walking out of a reception before the bride and groom make their exit, but if you plan on partying for hours and your budget doesn’t allow for photographic coverage of everyone dancing their hearts out, that’s totally your call. I will capture your day with no hidden fees, charges, or surprises. All edited images will be uploaded to your personal gallery for convenient and affordable print purchase from my professional lab and you will receive one low-resolution disk for personal use.
Base wedding coverage (4 hours): $1,200
Each additional contracted hour: $300
And there you have it. Simple, straight-forward coverage and pricing. I offer products such as wedding albums that are usually found in wedding packages, but they will be available a la carte. If you’d like to include one in your contract, we can write that in so you don’t have to worry about ordering and paying for it after the ceremony is over and you’re adjusting to married life. In a sense, your “package” is completely customizable. You don’t have to choose from one package to get the album or another to get some bonus prints. I’ve taken that out of the mix to eliminate any confusion, indecision, or hidden mark-ups.
Since I still work full-time and have a regular schedule of baby plan clients, I do limit the number of weddings I will shoot in any given time period. Please contact me to see what my availability is and schedule your consultation.
