Wedding Day Coverage

The wedding coverage will include all aspects of your day within the allotted time. Including the following:


  • Getting Ready
  • First Look
  • Posed Formals
  • Details (Shoes, Rings, Invitations, Floral Decorations)
  • Wedding Ceremony
  • Wedding Reception


The time required for this complete coverage will vary based on how your wedding day is planned and any travel that is required. If you plan on having a mid-day ceremony and an early evening reception, with time for formals pictures in between, you may easily run a long time. We can always come to a compromise on time. This should not be the deciding factor. For any package, Adding extra time would be billed at $100 an hour.


Example Time Layouts:


Engagement Session

The Engagement Session is a good opportunity for us to work together well in advance of the Wedding date itself. We can choose a few meaningful locations to you and take some fun, and intimate images in a totally relaxed setting. The photos from this session will be made available to you as an online gallery. These images are handy when sending out a “Save the Date” card to your guests. If you would like to coordinate an engagement session separate from these packages, the flat rate would be $400.


Rehearsal Dinner Photos

As an alternative to the Engagement Session (some people may feel it’s tacky), we can include photography at your rehearsal dinner. This is a day that is not often Professionally Photographed, but it should be. The most important people in your life will be at the Rehearsal Dinner, but it is a very casual setting. Your family and friends can relax and enjoy the night, while you work out the kinks in the ceremony. All the while I can be capturing candid moments of you with your family and friends enjoying time together. Some amazing interactions occur between families that may not occur or may go unnoticed the day of the wedding, with all the excitement and partying going on.


Personal Attention

All photography will be done by me, using at least two cameras and plenty of backup lenses, lights and batteries. The necessary lighting and staging will be performed by my Photo Assistant. We have known each other and worked together for almost 20 years. Our continuity will seamlessly allow me to produce beautifully lit images in any scenario.


Customized USB Drive

All packages also include a Customized USB Drive of your Full-Size images. This drive will come with some elegant packaging, but the real value is that you will have unlimited access to your images for your personal use.


Online Gallery of Images

All packages include an online photo gallery where you, as well as your family and friends, will be able to see all the photos of your day and be able to highlight their favorites for inclusion in a wedding album or for individual prints. This gallery is yours to share as you see fit. If your family or freinds choose to purchase prints from the day, they can do so from this online gallery.

Personalized Mobile App

All clients will receive a mobile app that can be used to view your wedding images. This app is available to whomever you choose and can be used to shared your photo collection as a whole, or limited to only the images you wish to share.

Wedding Albums

If you select a package that includes any albums, I will work with you to determine which of your favorite images will be included and I will use my professional judgment to design an album that captures the flow of the day and includes all the key moments and people that made the day special.

A 20-page album can contain up to 120 images, but will generally have somewhere between 60-80 photos. I will be able to provide a digital proof layout of the album before it goes to print, so you can be sure that the product you receive is exactly what you want.


Parent Albums

A common saying in a Best Man’s speech is “May you get everything you want, and want everything you get.”


With that in mind, the Parent Albums are essential a smaller version of your 12x12 album, but as necessary, we can omit and insert appropriate images that are more relevant to the individual set of parents. Customization is key and it is totally in your control here.


While the highest package includes two Parent Albums, additional albums can be produced at any time upon request. A 12x12 album added separately would run $600 and a single 8x8 parent album would run $400.


Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about these package, and I hope to hear from you soon as you plan your big day.
