My goal is to document each priceless moment of your wedding day with great focus on the details of the wedding preparation, ceremony, reception and any before and after special customs. Emotions speak louder than words and I strive to capture them in an artistic and candid fashion, combining both photojournalism with formal and traditional photography. During the formal picture times, we will stage lots of fun and artistic poses of bride and groom and wedding party at different locations of the wedding venue. The rest of the time, I will be looking for opportunities to capture candid moments during the ceremony and reception in an unobtrusive way.
Each package includes my time as a photographer and an assistant plus editing of all photographs. The couple will have full rights to the digital photographs and will receive them on a DVD. Additionally, I will post all photographs in a private viewing gallery so that family and friends of the bride and groom can view. Both web and DVD will display all photos in chronological order so that you can experience those wonderful moments again as they happened.
"The Engagement" Package - $175 A great addition to your wedding day is an engagement portrait. Dressed in your desired attire, you will be photographed for one hour at the romantic location of your choice. We will get you two to flirt a bit and capture some fun and artistic moments to express your true love for each other. Average of 25+ digitally edited photographs on web and DVD.
"The Flower Girl" Package - $1,000 4 continuous hours of photography on your wedding day - covers all of your formal photos, ceremony and cake cutting. This package works well for couples that want to see each other before the ceremony to get all the formal photos done in a timely manner. Digitally edited photographs on web and DVD.
"The Groom" Package - $1,500 6 continuous hours of photography on your wedding day - covers some getting ready shots, all of your formal photos, ceremony, cake cutting, toasts, first dance, bouquet and garter toss. Digitally edited photographs on web and DVD.
"The Bride" Package - $2,250 9 continuous hours of photography on your wedding day - starts with the moment you show up with your bags in hand, getting ready with all of your nervous jitters, fun moments with your bridal party while getting ready, formal photos, ceremony, reception, cake cutting, toasts, first dance, bouquet and garter toss, until the time you leave out the door in your getaway car exhausted and extremely happy. Digitally edited photographs on web and DVD.
If requested, photographs of the Groom and his Groomsmen getting ready will be charged an additional $100 per hour.
A non-refundable deposit of $200 is required to reserve my services for your wedding date. As a convenient to you, if desired, you can make payments on your balance up until 30 days before your wedding then the remaining balance owed will be due.
