Wedding Photography

There is a feeling of pride that comes with being a wedding photographer and being able to produce romantic, authentic and timeless wedding images for a couple. It is a constant pleasure to be able to watch that couple, whom I have spent so much time getting to know, speak their vows and promises, and publicly declare their love and commitment. These feelings are what continue to feed my creativity and need to document weddings. (Photo of me and my other half) 

If your future spouse, celebrating with your loved ones and a killer dance party are the most important parts of your wedding day, I know we will get along just great!  And, total bonus points if you love organic, soft palette floral arrangements with a pop of color!  

Below you will find pricing, collections and wedding photography details. As I understand every wedding and couple is unique, I would be more than happy to prepare a custom collection based on your needs. Just let me know! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

The Process 

ONE | executed contract & paid retainer

After an executed contract and paid retainer of $3,500, you will receive a copy of my wedding guide with some helpful information regarding how we can further connect, quality vendors, help with the family portrait list, timeline samples. A wedding questionnaire will also be sent at this time. If you will be working with a wedding planner, please let me know as soon as possible, as I love to connect with them as well.  Feel free to reach out if you have any wedding related questions, as I like to be as much of a help as I can! If you are still in the process of scheduling ceremony and reception start times and would like to make sure you have more than enough time for photos, do not hesitate to email me. I am more than happy to provide you with some suggestions to ensure we have ample time to create beautiful portraits.

TWO | 6 months prior to your big day

50% of your remaining balance is due.

Three | 4-6 weeks prior to your big day

We schedule a meeting (Skype or phone call) to review the timeline, details and any outstanding questions.

100% of your remaining balance is due.

FIVE | week of your wedding

If you will not be using a wedding planner, I will be sending you a wedding photography timeline and worksheet so that you know where me, and my assistant(s) will be throughout your wedding day. If you will be using a wedding planner, this will be coordinated through them.

Timeline - How much coverage you will I need? 

This really depends on your wedding and whether you are looking for coverage from getting ready through the reception. Below I have outlined the various parts of a wedding day and approximate time needed. We can chat about this more to get a better idea of your needs. 

details & prep (2hrs+)

Prep begins with photographs of all your glorious details. This may include: your wedding gown, fancy shoes, accessories, invitations, rings, bouquets. Once the details are photographed, getting ready coverage begins, including the finishing touches on your hair and/or makeup and candids with those helping you get ready. 

getting dressed (45min)

All your attendants should be dressed by this time to help you carefully step into your wedding attire. I also love to use this time to do a few portraits. 

travel (varies)

Whether you need to walk or drive to the next location of events, it is important to leave ample time to travel to that location. This includes enough time to pack up, load and unload any details and important people from one location to the next. I suggest having at least 15-20 minutes for packing up and another 15-20 minutes for unpacking.

ceremony (30min+)

It is best to discuss how long your ceremony will be with your officiant. This includes procession, ceremony and recession. If you are having a receiving line, I recommend leaving 15 minutes for every 100 guests that are attending your ceremony.

ceremony prep (30 min)

This gives you enough time to be tucked away before your guests arrive. During this time, we introduce ourselves to the officiant and setup our gear.  It is important for us to understand any rules your officiant may have about where we can and can’t photograph from.

wedding couple portraits (45min+)

This is not only time to capture some of the most beautiful images from your wedding day, but also time for the two of you to enjoy some precious time away from your guests on your wedding day. If you are looking to go on an adventure for portraits, the more time, the better. 

wedding party portraits (30min+)

For an average size wedding party (12 attendants), 30 minutes allows enough time for portraits of your full wedding party, photos with each individual on your side of the wedding party, photos with your full side of the wedding party. If your wedding party is larger, or any additional combinations are requested, more time will be needed. 

family portraits (30min+)

Family portrait time allocation varies greatly from one wedding to the next. For smaller portraits (2-4 people), plan to allocate about 3 minutes for each portrait. For medium portraits (4-8 people), plan to allocate 5 minutes for each portraits. For larger portraits (8+ people), plan to allocate a minimum of 5 minutes for each portrait. 

cocktail hour (1hrs+)

While you mingle with your guests and enjoy those specialty cocktails and appetizers, the details of your cocktail hour and reception space will be photographed. If time allows, my second photographer will be circling your cocktail hour taking photographs of your guests. About 20 minutes prior to your main entrance, we begin setting up our lighting for your reception. 


reception (2hrs+)

The first two hours of the reception generally include: entrances, first dance, 2 specialty dances, 2-3 speeches, a dance set, and a mock cake cutting. It is important to go over how much time is recommended with your coordinator and band to make sure everyone is on the same page. I always check with you before I leave to be sure you do not want any additional coverage. You are more than welcome to have us stay longer. Any additional coverage will be invoiced a few weeks after your wedding, so you do not have to worry about it on your big day!

Other Questions? 

Can we see what a full wedding gallery looks like?  

I am so glad you asked! I honestly believe that this is one of the most important things a couple should do when deciding on a wedding photographer. Every year I receive at least 5 inquiries from couples who hired another photographer and would like to do an anniversary session to reshoot their wedding portraits. It isn't necessarily because their wedding photos were bad, but more often than not it was because of a mismatch in style. The style that you see reflected on a photographer's website and social media should also be reflected in their full galleries. You can view various full galleries of my work here.  You can also view more details on the album design process here

Can you hold our wedding date? 

Unfortunately, I cannot hold your wedding date without a signed contract and retainer of $3,500. Electronic contracts expire in 48 hours for this reason.

What equipment do you use? 

A lot! Ha. I use a mix of digital, medium format film and 35mm film to document your wedding day. 

Is travel included? 

Travel is included for weddings taking place in the contiguous United States. For weddings taking place outside of the contiguous United States, please contact me for a custom quote. 

How many images do we get? 

I am a firm believer in quality over quantity. For weddings, you will receive a minimum of 600 color corrected digital images. These images will be uploaded to an online gallery and are ready to print!

What forms of payment do you accept? 

I accept check. 

How do we receive our digital images? 

If digital images with reprinting rights are included in the collection you booked, I will deliver the images through the online gallery with downloading instructions. It is very simple to use and easy to share with your loved ones, so your Uncle Bob from the south can download his favorite picture(s) from the dance floor. 



Thank you

The romance, laughter, tears, promises and the beauty of weddings.

A way to always remember the feelings and love from that day.
