Wedding Photography Frequently
01. What are your rates? My packages range from $1800-$4000 currently, starting at 4 hours coverage and going up to 10 hours. Each package is easily customizable so you get exactly what you need. I also have an hourly event rate for events shorter than 4 hours. For more information and packages and pricing visit the Wedding Package page. If you are planning a destination wedding to somewhere amazing let me know your plans and we can often times work out a deal where your package is deeply discounted or free when you cover travel.
02. How do we book and pay? It’s easy! To get your date secured on my calendar a 25% non refundable retainer is due for all wedding packages (50% for hourly rates). Once you have confirmed you would like to book I will email over an invoice complete with you payment plan, contract, and portal link where you will have everything in one place from there on out. Our emails to each other, contract, any forms I have for you. Wedding planning can be chaotic, I aim to keep the photography portion as organized as possible for you so you have one less thing to stress about!
03. How many images do we get? I do not limit the number of images given but no two weddings are alike. The length of wedding, amount of detail, and family size/guest count can all determine the final image count. I deliver an average of 60 images per hour covered.
04. Do you edit all of our photos? Absolutely! Every single one will be edited. Editing includes - exposure and tone adjustments, as well as light blemish removal and skin softening.
05. Do you have insurance? I’m glad you asked! YES I have business insurance. Let me know if your venue needs my info.
06. What equipment do you use? I shoot with two Nikon d750 camera bodies which each have 2 memory card slots. I am always “shooting to” multiple cards, which means there is always a backup of every photo taken JUST in case of equipment failure. I always bring a range of lenses - 24-70, 70-200, 50 mm, and 85mm as well as multiple flashes to cover any situation we might encounter on your big day. I also have a wedding day emergency kit on me at all times for the non photography related mishaps you and your guests may run into. Everything from needle and thread, to scissors, to perfume, to Tide pen, band-aids, bobby pins etc. I have witnessed it all when it comes to weddings and luck favors the prepared!
07. Do I need a 2nd photographer? For events longer than 4 hours I do prefer to have a 2nd photographer there. The longer the wedding day the more stressful the timeline and having a 2nd photographer means more photos for you, more variety in the images, and more relaxed every one stays. A 2nd photographer can grab different angles ( ie your grooms face as you walk down the aisle while I get that shot of you). They may have a longer lens so they can grab close ups at the same time I get that wide angle shot showing off the venue, meaning we can move through shots much quicker. When only one photographer is present you will have to make more choices on which shot you prefer.
