Below is my starting pricing. All weddings are photographed by me, on a combination of digital and film. I offer packages based on popular day of schedules, but also offer custom packages if your plans don’t fall within a set package. Reach out for a full pricing guide and we can talk more about what you have planned! There are also answers to frequently asked questions below.
DO YOU ASK FOR A DEPOSIT TO BOOK?
There is a non-refundable booking fee, which is 50% of the total package price. This fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your date! The remaining balance is due the week before your event. Deposits ensure that I can turn down other work on that date, and cover time spent planning/costs of supplies, etc.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes! Let me know when inquiring and I can send more information on travel costs. 50% of my weddings in the coming year are outside of Washington.
DO YOU SHOOT ALONE OR WITH A SECOND SHOOTER?
Most of my weddings I shoot individually, and prefer to do that whenever possible. Having a second shooter can require attention to be taken away from photographing, and often isn’t necessary! We can absolutely talk through hiring one on if it’s important to you, so don’t hesitate to let me know.
HOW DOES THE DAY-OF TIMELINE WORK?
I offer help with drafting a timeline that best aligns with what you envision for your day. Since each wedding day looks different, this can be helpful in ensuring you aren’t spending an hour taking couple photos when you only want 10 minutes, or vice versa. This is something we usually talk about when trying to figure out which package makes the most sense for you, but it is also something that is completely flexible along the way.
CAN WE MEET BEFORE WE BOOK?
It is important to me that you feel comfortable and confident in your decision to hire me, so if you’d like to meet first count me in! Sometimes during the summer and fall months it can be tricky to find time to meet within the window of when you are wanting to decide on a photographer, in which case we can hop on the phone/zoom call grab drinks further down the road.
DO YOU COVER REHEARSAL DINNERS/DAY AFTER SESSIONS?
I offer an add-on for day before or day after coverage! My pricing guide covers these different scenarios. for questions as to why you might want either one, lets talk more about your plans!
DO YOU WORK OFF OF A SHOT LIST?
My photojournalistic approach ensures I am present and capturing all of the day, but that also means I don’t work off of a traditional shot list. I request a shot list for family photos if you have one, but all other elements of the day are either candid or if they are more structured they are creative and not pre-determined (i.e. couple photos).
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS & PRINTS?
I am a huge proponent of print! I do not include them in packages to ensure you aren’t paying for anything you don’t want, but I do offer a full printing service for albums, books, prints, canvases, etc. as an add-on! You will have access to this service as long as your gallery is online, so there is no pressure to decide what you want to print before your session.
