Wedding Photography

I clearly remember the love and emotion of my own wedding day and I truly believe in capturing the spirit of this very special day. Wedding photography is quickly becoming one of my favorite photography sessions!
What does a wedding photography session cost?
Wedding photography can vary greatly depending on the number of hours you will need a photographer. 
Most weddings require a minimum of 3 hours photography time, however many need 4 to 5 hours of photography or more, depending on the festivities planned for the day.  When deciding how long you need a photographer, you should consider that a session typically starts when the bride is getting dressed and typically ends when the bride and groom drive away.   Also consider that the bride and groom formal photos usually take about an hour of time, with group photos taking another 30-45 minutes of time.
Weddings fees start at $500 and include three hours of shooting.  Additional hours are available at $150 per hour.  A $150 non-refundable retainer is required to hold your date and final payment is due 14 days before the wedding date.

Wedding fees are all inclusive.  This fee includes a proof book of at least 100 of my favorite photos from the day.  It also includes a CD of all edited images with a "right to print release".
Sometimes it's easier to just have the photographer provide prints for you, so I am willing to provide design and prices for prints, thank you cards, canvas wall prints, photo books and additional copies of your proof book.  I print through a professional photography company and the prints are very high quality and reasonably priced.
If you have special editing requests, please ask.  The wedding fee includes the right to request speical edits of photos for up to 30 days after the wedding at no additional charge.  So if you decide that you want color-touched photos, the vintage look or some other special edit, please contact me. 

What can I expect from a wedding photography session?
Everything!  I don't underestimate the importance of this special day and pull out all the stops to make your photos special.  This is the one session where I really get the chance to know the couple and share a few very special hours of their life. 

Need engagement photos too?
Do you need a photo of the couple to include with your wedding announcement.  Want beautiful photos to display on your special day?  Then book an engagement session too.  Engagement sessions can be booked in either one or two hours session and range in price from $100 to $200.  This includes a CD of all edited photos from the engagment session.
