Weddings & Events:
**Due to client privacy restrictions, I am unable to show many of my images online. However, private showings of my portfolio are available by appointment. Thank you for your understanding.**
Why does wedding photography seem to cost more? Why can I not just get a 'one size fits all' price?
As you search for the perfect photographer who clicks with the two of you and your style, You may notice a higher fee for weddings than for other services. That is because weddings are very photo-intensive, there is more risk involved to the photographer, and the work is not only on the wedding day.
There are options for all couples and celebrations; whether a small intimate gathering for a few hours to a multi-day event with many specific details and a guest list the size of Baltimore. There are also options for your post-event images such as albums, prints, canvas or glass images, etc. These options and choices are as individual as your fingerprints. Just as wedding dresses have different prices per designer, fabric, embellishments and customization; your photographer also needs to consider your specific needs for your day before creating the estimate for your needs and wants.
This is why you will rarely find a 'One size fits all' price for your wedding celebration. Before becoming a wedding photographer, I was skeptical. Why couldn't I just look on a website and get a price for say, 8 hours of wedding day coverage? It was like 'Mission Impossible!'
Here's the Skinny: And it took my becoming a wedding photographer to understand it:
Your Celebration is Unique - Yes. That's it. Seriously.
What I mean is your vision for your wedding coverage may not require any additional equipment be brought to the site or rented; not require additional photographers or length of coverage time. It may not require an overnight stay or extra mileage outside of my general coverage area. My wedding coverage provides a lot of service for most wedding celebrations, but your needs may differ.
Just some of the individualized services I provide as your photographer:
I consult with the couple / family before and after the wedding; I list your desired locations, goal images and timelines of your event. If local, I do a site inspection of your venue and other key locations for lighting and locations for your best images (if not local, I consult with your site managers); I consult with your planner and if applicable your other vendors for any potential issues with layout or lighting; I identify and discuss any known or potential problems prior to your event so that your day is worry-free; and there are many hours after the wedding editing photographs and if applicable, laying out albums so that your memories are cherished for a lifetime.
Wedding coverage includes up to 3 pre-wedding consultations, up to 8 hours* of wedding day coverage, up to 3 post-wedding editing consultations, retouched images and viewing gallery for up to 12-months, retouched digital images delivered on flash drive..... Starting at $2000.00.
*(Extended coverage available at additional cost).
**(Wedding Day of 8 hour minimum coverage)
**Wedding photo books / prints and canvases available at additional cost.
