Before looking at pricing, consider some things when choosing a wedding photographer...price isn't everything! It may be a lot but consider all that an experienced 'professional' wedding photographer can do for you and consider that the price is not just for wedding day coverage...
I include a free engagement session with all my wedding clients. It gives us a chance to get to know each other and gives you some photos to use to celebrate being engaged! Consider it a test drive. I spend about 20-30 minutes taking some beautiful engagement photos then we can sit down and go over our wedding package needs. Once you book your wedding the images are yours for free! Doesn't get any better than that, does it?
I will work with you closely up until AND after your wedding to make sure you get the best photos possible with a great experience. We meet, talk on the phone, chat via email, skype on the computer, whatever it takes to prepare for wedding day and get you all you need and want from your wedding images. I like to meet clients to customize a package, take some engagement photos and then we touch base prior to wedding time, often several times so we are both prepared. I will send you info to help prepare both you and I for what to expect on the day of your wedding. A prepared wedding photographer is a better photographer.
I work with you on payments for your package, offer payment options and am flexible as long as your wedding is paid for 2 weeks prior to the wedding. I do not charge for payment plans. We will go over the wedding day timeline and I like to get as much info of the day as I can.
After the wedding you get a preview of the wedding photos online (Facebook and/or Google+) to help hold you over until the rest are done :) I know your excited to see your wedding photos so a preview is a good way to show you the best of the day! I won't lie and tell you the rest of the photos will be done quickly, they wont! I individually edit, crop, touch up, resize every photo you will see in your online gallery. A wedding produces over 700 photos (at least) and it takes time to weed out the bad, perfect the good and prepare them for you to see and get prints from. They all get uploaded to your own personal online gallery for you to view and share with family and friends then we work on getting you the goodies that came with the package you chose. This also can be a long process as we go back and forth to choose the right images and products etc. I also edit and process my photos in order of the wedding date so i will finish previous weddings before starting the next (except for the preview).
I like to prepare wedding couples. So when people ask if the price is just for the wedding day number of hours i'm photographing, i say absolutely not...read this page on my website and lets chat about the process and time and professionalism and experience you'd be getting as well ! I tend not be a traditional photographer but like to create a unique photo from the scene of the day. Keep in mind the place, lighting and time of day have a lot to do with the way your photos will look. I don't cart along my studio with me to a wedding so i will utilize what is available to me (including whats in my camera bag) to get the best photos of the day. So please consider the time of day and available light for the best photos possible. Be sure to view my work also but know all weddings are different :)
All my wedding collections are a template for your custom package needs! Use these packages as a base but I like to meet clients to see what your wedding day needs are so I can customize a package for you!
