Reserving Your Photographer:
The Retainer fee covers the time spent photographing your wedding as well as all the time spent after your wedding in editing portraits, ordering your prints and designing your album. This fee is determined by the package you choose. The retainer fee is due the day the contract is signed and guarantees your reservation with us for your wedding day. This is a non-refundable fee and does not apply towards the purchase of any photographs or mileage.
Each package detailed below includes the following services:
Engagement Session ($125 value) – 1 hour
Bridal Session if desired* ($125 value) - 1 hour
These session are offered to help you become familiar with me and my personal style of photography. These complimentary sessions are NOT available after the wedding.
Free 30 day online proofing
I personally adjust every single photograph taken at your wedding. In other words, I will evaluate every photograph from your wedding--one at a time. I will make any needed adjustments to exposure, white balance, tone, and contrast in each photograph. This includes conversion to black and white or color tinting. This can be quite time consuming and may take a couple months to complete. I also personally design and layout, with your input and influence, the coffee table albums.
If you select me as your photographer, you can be certain that instead of receiving a series of unmodified and lifeless files, every one of your wedding photos will be exposed to my unique touch and attention to detail.
All packages include the following photography coverage:
-Rehearsal lighting test (if desired by photographer)
-Bride and Groom getting ready the day of the wedding
-Casual candid formals on the wedding day
-Documentary style photographs that really capture the emotions and details of the complete day in pictures so that others viewing those photos will be able to relive the event.
-No time limits on wedding day photography services
Below are the details of our wedding packages. All packages can be customized to suit your specific needs. If you do not see a package that fits your day, let me customize one for you.
