Wedding Pricing

Finding the right photographer is one of the most important aspects of your wedding day. While your venue, details and settings will set the scene for your incredible day, your wedding photos will be how you remember those moments forever. For me, photography is important –  it’s how we as humans document our existence. If you think photography is important too, we’re probably a great fit for each other!

I am glad you are viewing this page, because it means you’re seriously considering having me shoot your wedding and that’s awesome, please also take a moment to familiarize yourself with my work by spending some time on the site and be sure to let me know if you have any questions!

Intimate Story – $2000

Includes:

  • 6 hours wedding photography
  • USB with color and B&W versions of all finished images.
  • Engagement Session.
  • Online proofing with downloads. Friends and family can download, print, and share.
  • Online print ordering.
  • No photo limit, I deliver the best of whatever I shoot.

This is perfect for the couple who is planning on having their ceremony and reception at the same location. Typically I can cover most of the important parts of the wedding day including getting ready, portraits, and the reception. The Intimate Wedding Story generally requires me to show up towards the end of getting ready and leave prior to the end of the reception. Couples who pick this photography package don’t usually plan on a grand exit or don’t wish it to be covered.

Because of the shorter time period, this package generally allows less time for candids, dancing, or getting ready photos. Longer couple portrait sessions are usually tough to fit into the timeline, but I work very hard with each couple to make a photography timeline that works for them.

Wedding Story – $2500

Includes:

  • 8 hours wedding photography
  • USB with color and B&W versions of all finished images.
  • Engagement Session.
  • Online proofing with downloads. Friends and family can download, print, and share.
  • Online print ordering.
  • No photo limit, I deliver the best of whatever I shoot.

The Wedding Story is a favorite for most couples. The allowed time is great when the ceremony and reception are close, but at different venues. It allows time for getting ready, portraits, and the reception and gives me more time to cover candids and dancing. Couples who pick The Wedding Story love having a photographer capturing all the crazy activities on the dance floor or longer portrait sessions.

This plan is great for first looks, allowing us more time to do portraits and group shots of the wedding party. On occasion, I’ve been able to get some really nice candid photos of the wedding parties as well. I usually recommend starting here when considering your wedding photography and making adjustments later on if needed.

Full Story – $3000

Includes:

  • 10 hours wedding photography
  • USB with color and B&W versions of all finished images.
  • Engagement Session.
  • Online proofing with downloads. Friends and family can download, print, and share.
  • Online print ordering.
  • No photo limit, I deliver the best of whatever I shoot.

Some couples want every detail covered for The Full Story. If you’re wanting to sneak away after the ceremony for photos for an hour or so or your ceremony and reception are far apart, this is the best photo package for you! The additional time allows us a stress free, laid back portrait session and is great for first looks. Usually, we can take our time with bride and groom, wedding party, and/or family portraits. This package is heavy on candids and by the nature of a longer shoot allows more photos afterwards.

Couples who love photography and value it as the most important part of their wedding day often consider this package. It allows us the most opportunity to sneak away to other locations to shoot portraits. Cocktail hour is for the guests, so let’s get out and shoot some unique photos!

 

Extras

 

Prints

Print prices vary, but you can see my pricing in this sample gallery. I have kept print prices the same low price for years, and it’s pretty competitive with other online print shops, but the quality is far superior. If you do yourself one favor, order your prints here. You’ll love them!

Extra Time – $300/hr

If your wedding ends up going over the allowed time, I charge $300 an hour to stay longer. I always come to say goodbye at the end of a wedding, so if you need me to hang around longer, just ask!

Second Photographer – $500

I’ve been shooting weddings for over a decade, which means I’ve got enough experience to go it alone. However, if you want or need a second photographer to cover alternative shots or other events happening simultaneously to the main event, we’ve got you covered. I vet my second photographers to make sure they’re skilled enough to handle things like posing, shooting solo, and getting great shots that compliment mine.

Wedding Albums

Albums sell for $800 each. This includes an 8×8 album printed on thick pages with leather, linen, or printed covers.

Album Proofing

We have a double proofing process when we design a wedding album. This means you will have two chances to make suggestions and changes to our designs. During these proofing sessions, you can go crazy and make any suggestions you want on our design. Typically, couples simply suggest moving photos around, adding or removing some images. If, after the second proof, you’d still like to make a change, we have a $50 proofing fee. You can spend as much time as you need with the images between proofs. The first proof will take about 4-6 weeks to receive and once the final proof is approved, we will send it out for production, which generally takes about 3 weeks to arrive in the mail.

Custom Albums

While we picked our favorite albums as a starting point, we’re able to source custom albums to fit your needs. I truly believe the printed image is the best way to enjoy photos, so I’ve worked long and hard to find unique albums. My default album is a sturdy, high quality album which I can source for a good price, but if it’s not your style let me know and we can talk about custom options! Oftentimes I can source custom or unique albums and design them for a slightly higher cost than our default albums. Consider me your wedding album consultant!
