"This is YOUR wedding. Do what you love. Invite the people you want. Dance to the songs that bring you the most joy. Eat the best food you'll ever have. Enjoy all the moments. Share the photographs with your children & grandchildren. Most of all, spend the rest of your days with the person you love."
What are the options for my Wedding Day?
We book a limited number of weddings per year, by interview. Each includes a one hour engagement session and digital download of images at no additional charge. Two experienced photographers and eight hours of coverage at the locations you choose are included. A flash drive containing five hundred plus edited images and a print release are included. We work closely with our couples to determine exactly what they are looking for and we create a detailed individualized plan to make sure we get the shots that are important to them. We are available to answer questions seven days a week not only during the planning phase, but until the final images are delivered and beyond. The investment for the wedding described above is $2,500.00. Many clients add a First Look or Shoot the Details component (detailed below), and the majority of clients invest an additional $750-$2,000 in specialty albums, photo books, prints and wall art ordered directly from our website through their online gallery (although there is no obligation to do so)
We offer "First Look" sessions as an additional component. The Bride and Groom meet at a location of their choice before the ceremony. We capture the candid emotion as the couple catches a first glimpse of one another in their wedding attire, after which we capture posed, contemporary portraits of the bride alone and of the Bride and Groom together. The "Mini First Look" is approximately forty five minutes and is as described above. The cost is $125. A "Full First Look" is a ninety minute session (essentially a "double session") that adds the bridal party and or immediate family for the second portion of the session. The fee is $175. Either option provides the luxury of relaxed and dedicated time instead of the usual rush to get photos taken between the ceremony and reception. A couple may choose to have the majority of their formal photography done during a ninety minute First Look while everyone is relaxed and the hair & makeup are fresh. By the way, none of our First Look couples have reported any misfortunes due to seeing one another before the wedding! See samples from a "First Look" session in the wedding photo gallery.
We offer "Shoot the Details" sessions as an additional component. The bride makes the dress, veil, shoes, rings, bouquet, invitation, jewelry etc. available to the photographer before the wedding. This allows the photographer one hour of additional, uninterrupted time for artistic staging of these items at a location chosen by the Bride. The fee is $175. See samples from a "Shoot the Details" session in the wedding photo gallery.
Extended coverage is also available for clients whose festivities are require more time $125 for an additional forty five minutes and $175 for an additional ninety minutes when time is reserved by the timing of the final payment, two weeks before the event. Last minute extensions of time will be at $200 per hour, rounded to the next half hour.
We will travel to locations outside our one hour (each way) travel radius is billed at $65 per hour. Overnight stays, when necessary, are an individual matter for each wedding and are negotiated in the Wedding Contract.
