Fill out my contact form. When you’re ready to book, 50% of the collection price is due to retain your date. The remaining 50% is due 30 days prior to your wedding. I do offer payment plans if this needs to be split up a bit more, but the minimum amount to hold your date is $1000.
I wouldn’t even dream of shooting someone’s wedding without backups of everything. My primary camera bodies both have dual slots so your wedding photos are immediately backed up twice. I have two backup camera bodies just in case I drop one down a mountain or walk backwards into a river. I even have backup lenses and flashes. You never know when a guest is going to accidentally kick a $600 flash off the top of your camera while you’re trying to take some creative shots on the dance floor (true story).
Speaking of that time someone dance-kicked your flash across the room – do you have insurance?
Sure do! I have full business liability insurance and am happy to share this certificate with your wedding venue upon request. All of my second shooters, associate photographers and photo booth attendants carry liability insurance as well.
This all depends on the hours of coverage, the schedule of events, whether you have a second photographer and how great your guests are at hitting the dance floor. Typically, you’ll receive 50-100 images per hour from your wedding day. Your contract states the full image gallery will be ready in 4-6 weeks, and it can truly take that long if I’m in the middle of a busy wedding season, but I strive to get your images to you as quickly as possible. On average, that takes about 3 weeks. I know, waiting is hard, but I’ll be sure to put some sneak previews for you on my Instagram and Facebook while you wait.
All of my collections are customizable. If your collection includes an engagement session you can add/remove it as well as hours of coverage, the second photographer or the photo booth for either a reduced rate or an album credit. You can see the full break-down of my pricing here.
Since it’s 2020, just about everyone has a smartphone or tablet with a built-in camera (except for maybe your old Uncle that insists his flip phone gets the job done). I will go over this more in-depth in your contract, but other people are allowed to take pictures at your wedding. I do recommend that you at least have an unplugged ceremony, though. Looking out into a sea of iPads and iPhones isn’t nearly as touching as seeing the actual faces of your guests during the ceremony. Also, I really don’t want to throw elbows when someone steps in front of me as I capture your partner’s face when you come down the aisle.
