Wedding Photography Pricing

Wedding Investment & Our Pricing Philosophy

"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten"
- Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin’s quote couldn’t be any more relevant than it is today. You have one chance with your wedding day photography. There are no do overs. Having photographed over 300 weddings, I have the experience to help you take the worry out of your wedding day photography . 

Wedding Photography is a necessity, but GREAT wedding photography is a CHOICE.

Like every wedding couple, every wedding day is different. So, we will offer customized, hourly options for select clientele on a limited basis. But, generally, we have a completely different pricing philosophy for those looking for a high end experience. We believe that your wedding day is just that. An entire day. 

When researching your photography budget, keep this in mind. You should not have to worry about scheduling your day around your photographer. With us, you can let your day unfold, let real moments happen, and we will be there to document every one of them for you. Your wedding day deserves the best wedding pictures. What you pay for your photography should reflect that. 

While considering what you will pay for your wedding photography, these are a few things to consider when hiring us…

 You will ALWAYS receive the following in every one of our collections:

1 You will never have time limits:  You will have us from the beginning of your day until your day is over. It’s that simple. (All day wedding coverage means all day). My thoughts on all day wedding coverage. 

2 You will always have two photographers.

3 You will receive an engagement session: This is always included. It allows us to get to know each other better, and get you more comfortable in front of the camera. See my thoughts on engagement sessions

4 You will receive an additional photo session: We will do a photo session in your wedding dress on the day of your hair and make-up trial. These will be included with your wedding pictures. This is a great way to get the creative “posed” pictures taken care of and open up your timeline on your wedding day. 

5  A handmade, custom album is always included: Call us old fashioned, but we can think of no better way to display your favorite wedding pictures than in a wedding album. A tangible item from your wedding day that will become your first family heirloom. We strongly believe that your wedding should be presented as beautifully as is possible. That is why we go the extra, very careful and important step of always including a wedding book for you to display your favorite wedding images. See an example of one of our award winning wedding album designs.

6 Digital Files: Digital files can be included in any of our Collections
