Your package always includes:
Fill out my contact form (or call, email, text, or send a carrier pigeon) and I will get back to you within 48 hours. I'll send you detailed information about pricing, what is included, and a few possible time slots for our first meeting.
If you think we might be a good fit (no pressure!) we’ll schedule a chat to get into finer details. We’ll discuss your timeline and priorities, and I’ll have a quote for you by the end of the meeting. Of course I’ll answer any questions you have and offer suggestions as needed.
Within a few days you’ll get a preliminary contract to review. You can look over the terms and see if you have any additional questions or changes you’d like to make. Once the contract is finalized and you’ve decided to move forward, you’ll sign an online copy of the contract and pay the 50% retainer. Congrats! The date is reserved for your wedding and you can start stressing about something else on your wedding planning list.
Wedding coverage starts at $4,000. On our first chat we will figure out what kind of coverage will best suit your needs.
As many as you like! Get in touch and I will send you access.
I feel strongly that these photos are extremely important, and I always take them. They’re just not the most exciting to look at so I don’t have them on my site, but if you browse any complete wedding gallery you will see them.
Your date is booked only with a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer. To be fair to all potential couples, I cannot hold your date without those things.
I have photographed many, many weddings on my own and am always happy to do so. However, a second photographer provides some valuable services. If there is a need to split up, such as bride/groom getting ready in different locations, a second photographer makes it possible to cover both. During the ceremony, a second camera can get more guest reactions during key moments, as well as different angles and perspectives. If we do portraits during the cocktail hour, the second photographer can stay behind and cover guests and details. You will not feel like anything is missing with one photographer, but you will get more comprehensive coverage with two.
I have network of full-time wedding photographers, some of the best in the industry, that I pull from for second shooting. One of them photographed my wedding, one of them my sister’s wedding, so these are people that I 100% trust as main photographers.
Not one bit. As someone who likes to experience things through a camera, I understand the impulse. If you prefer to have an “unplugged” wedding, I’ll support that too and make sure everyone knows they will have free access to the photos I deliver.
I hand edit every image individually for color, contrast, exposure, cropping and anything else that is a global application to the entire image. You can request additional retouching such as removing things from a frame, and that will be outsourced to my retoucher on staff and charged at an hourly rate.
About 75 per hour of coverage, but that’s just an average. I don’t put any limits on the number of photos delivered.
As I’m shooting, the files are being copied to two identical memory cards in case one fails. Once finished, I back them up on site to portable drive. When I get home, I copy them to my main drive, a backup drive, and the cloud. I do not erase or reuse the original memory card until the photos are delivered to you.
It’s likely! Just ask and I will will show you examples from your venue or someplace similar. If I have not been to your venue before, I will arrive early to scout on your wedding day.
The photos will be delivered to your email with a link to your online gallery. From there, you can download your photos with the provided PIN, share the link with friends/family, share to social media, and order prints and printed products. The images you download are unwatermarked and in full resolution, do do with as you wish.
