Wedding Photography Prices and Packages

For current pricing and package information please contact us here!

Every wedding and every couple is unique, so it only makes sense that wedding photography should be unique and tailored specially for every wedding and every couple.

However, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. 

Therefore, I offer pre-set collections in order to get the brainstorming process rolling and from there I offer a la carte offerings, so we can all figure out exactly what you want and exactly what you need for your wedding date.

Wedding Photography Pre-Set Collections

We offer three wedding photography packages. Each comes with the following:

•     A password-protected online image gallery for easy downloading of low-resolution digital files, as well as ordering of reprints

•     Your collection of hand-edited digital files delivered within six weeks of your wedding date

•     At least three in-depth and face to face photography consultations before your wedding date

•     A post wedding date consultation to help showcase your wedding photographs

What makes each collection different is the following

•     Each collection has a different number of hours of photography coverage (7, 8, 9, etc).

•     Some collections include a 10×10 fine art album of up to 60 pages

•     Some collections include a secondary shoot (engagement, bridal, trash the dress, family, rehearsal dinner, etc).

•     Some collections include an assistant/secondary photographer

What does all this mean?

A USB drive of the high-resolution images is how you receive your digital files. It’s delivered to you within six weeks of your wedding date either in person or by mail depending on location and travel. Once you receive your gallery you can use it to order prints, share your images with family and friends or to back up the images for the future.

Every photographer has a different post-wedding process and please let me explain mine. After your wedding, all of your images are downloaded and meticulously backed up. I then lightly cull through the images, removing all true outtakes (eyes closed, backs to the camera, etc.). I then edit each image one at a time, by hand. I personally oversee that each image is the best, resulting in a complete wonderfully finished final project. Finally each image is sized to maintain print integrity in sizes up to canvas-sized prints, while also being manageable for you to back up and move around your devices.

All photography consultations will be meetings with me and will give us a chance to discuss what aspects of the wedding day you care about the most. Some couples are looking for a hands-off photographer with no portraits and wish everything to be candid, other couples want more time devoted to photos of the guests and other couples want to devote more time portraits of the wedding party. We also discuss the timeline of the day and any other photography concerns you may have. You will also have a chance to see more of my work and what photographs I can create on your day. Last, the consultations give us a chance to get to know each other. I’ve found that if clients know me and I know them, I can really capture their personalities on camera. After all, it can be awkward for a stranger to be taking your photo and not everyone feels natural and comfortable in front of a camera! Getting to know each couple individually allows everyone to be comfortable and let their personalities and relationship to truly shine!

A la Carte wedding photography pricing

I absolutely understand that packages not for everyone. What if you’re looking for a different amount of hours, a different size of album and few different add-ons than what are included in the packages?

I firmly believe that you should not have to include anything you don’t want in your wedding photography collection. For that reason, I have an a la carte list of hourly coverage options. Each hourly coverage option also comes with:

•     A password-protected online image gallery for easy downloading of low-resolution digital files, as well as ordering of reprints

•     Your collection of hand-edited digital files delivered within six weeks of your wedding date

•     At least three in-depth and face to face photography consultations before your wedding date

•     A post wedding date consultation to help showcase your wedding photographs

 

Wedding Albums

One option in my pre-set wedding photography collection comes with an album. We have albums of all sizes, starting at 8×10 and going upwards in numbers of pages and sizes of the actual physical book.

If you decide to order an album, you will be able to decide which images are included. I will design the wedding album based off your preferences and give you final design approval. You’ll have three redesigns to the album. Once, we’re set on the album design I’ll have the album printed and sent to me where I’ll personally make sure all photos were printed to the highest standard.

Engagement sessions

Some wedding photographers out there require every booked wedding to have an engagement session. I do not, realizing that engagement shoots aren’t for everyone and sometimes it’s just not feasible based on travel expenses, timing or the couple’s budget to shoot an engagement. However, if you do choose an engagement shoot with me, then you will have some greater benefits to the shoot more than simply stunning photos of the two of you.

First, the engagement shoot helps us get to know each other even more and allows even more comfort and familiarity between us so that the wedding day photos will be even better. 

Wedding days can often leave to tight schedules with minimal time for portraits and on top of that can run behind schedule, leaving both you and me with limited time and locations for any portraits. Therefore, the engagement shoot can give us a stress-free two to three hour window to travel to multiple locations and use multiple outfits and to really get some incredibly creative and breathtaking shots. I will also go back and personally look through the shoot and use it as a baseline for what poses really fit you as a couple and what situations led to really authentic moments.

Wedding photography add-ons

I also have a long list of add-ons for you to include with a collection or a la carte hourly options. Some have been mentioned already, but they include:

•     Overtime by the hour

•     An assistant/second photographer

•     A secondary shoot

•     Rehearsal dinner coverage

•     Parent albums

•     Engagement albums

•     4×6 photo proof book

•     Wholesale print options    

What makes you different from every other photographer?

I know that there are countless choices for a wedding photographer. There are many artists to choose from and it can truly be difficult to differentiate between what makes one photographer “better” than another. Some is technical skill. Some is the artistic eye of the individual.

Here is what I’ll bring to the wedding date that may be different than others

•     I’ve been a published and professional photographer for 10 years

•     I’ve studied photography in college and continue to take online classes where I have learned and learn from some amazing photographers around the country and world.

•     I stay cool under pressure! Before wedding photography, I worked as a photojournalist in the newspaper world. Journalism can be an intense deadline-driven industry and you may work in both tragic and high-emotion situations. Coming from that world, I know how to stay cool and relaxed even if things get behind schedule or it rains or any number of things. I’ve been told by many guests and wedding party members that they enjoyed working with me, because I was less “stressed” than all the other photographers they’ve worked with in the past and I knew how to make the portraits fun.

•     As a photojournalist I’ve been honored with numerous awards for photography and multimedia in a state-wide competition in Nevada.

•     I’m highly trained in all technical aspects of wedding photography. Situations change and I can create beautiful images for you in the rain, in the snow, in the dark or when the timeline falls apart and changes, whether it’s the middle of the day or in a park, downtown or on the beach and so forth.
