For the engagement session I'll discuss with you what location would work best for the two of you - perhaps there's a park or a cafe that you proposed in, a grassy hill where you picnicked together, or a location downtown where you like to hang out. We'll hang out together for 1-2 hours and I'll take your picture. It'll be a bit awkward. You probably aren't used to being a model and someone follow you around, taking your picture. I'm really awkward having my picture taken, and I have a lot of practice :)
Don't worry about posing or about looking perfect. It's my job to help you relax and work with you on poses/activities that will look good for you - not just a generic pose.
Many couples worry about what to wear - it's helpful to coordinate your colors as one outfit. You're welcome to bring a change of clothes - maybe one dressy/going out, and one more casual. It helps to have comfortable clothing where you can relax and focus on being yourselves, whether that's cowboy hats and boots or flip-flops and superhero t-shirts.
In planning how many hours you want to book a photographer for your wedding day, think about which events you want covered: "getting ready" photos, family photos, couples portraits, bridal party portraits, ceremony (yes), reception, dinner, dancing, sendoff. Maybe you're also having a ladies brunch or burgers and pool with the guys. Think about which events are most important to you to have photographs of.
I think it's very important for me to develop a relationship with you before the wedding so you're not having a stranger follow you around all day. This also will result in better photographs, as you'll already know me be more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.
For this reason I offer a $100 discount off the cost of your engagement session if you book both the engagement session and the wedding with me. This discount can be retroactive if you decide to do an engagement session and then later add on the wedding.
Engagement photos are $400 for 1-2 hours of shooting in 1 locations such as a park with many background options. You are welcome to bring multiple outfits :)
Weddings start at $900 for 4 hours of coverage, and are $150 for each hour after that for 1 photographer. You will receive at least 200 of the best digital photos (full/print-sized) on a hard drive.
Prices above do not include sales tax.
Refunds: As I believe in the high quality of my product and will be working hard over many weeks to provide you with beautiful edited photographs, refunds are not offered. Please carefully look through the photos on this website to see if you like this style of photography, as every photographer is slightly different and you want the best match for your style, personalities, and budget.
