Wedding Photography on Couch

Wedding Photographer Pricing

We believe in transparency and always making sure your best interest is the same as ours.  So each package is the same for you, my friends and family. All are all-inclusive so there is no upselling and we can focus on your wedding instead of which package.  We are able to do this partly because we teach all our photographers old school film techniques applied to the current technology allowing for better quality, cleaner editing and timeless photos.

All weddings include Copyright Release and Fully Edited Full Resolution Photos. 

For elopement style weddings we offer hourly packages to customize based on your needs for your wedding.  These are typically 3 hours for $950

Fully edited files and copyright release avoid the standard 300% mark up on photo products by getting them at wholesale price.  You can do this through the hosting website or at a local professional lab such as Robin Imaging.  

 

Do you have print packages?

We edit all photos from your wedding and deliver them fully edited and full resolution with a copyright release so you can print them yourself at local professional labs such as Robin Imaging or DLS Photo Lab.  We also have all the photos uploaded to Pixieset for you and your family to print at the wholesale pricing listed below:

Printing

(Additional Sizes Available)

We include full resolution files with copyright release with every package for you to print as you see fit.  We offer wholesale pricing as a convenience for you to avoid print credits and more confusion to packaging.

Do I get an album?

Much like printing enlargements we don't attempt to upsell your package to sell additional products.  You have all your photos fully edited with a copyright release and are free to make an album anywhere you like.  If you would like one of our albums, they are custom designed according to your stylistic and photo preferences and printed by zookbinders.  We sell them at wholesale price plus the design cost ranging from $350-$750 depending on album style and upgrades.  Typical sizes are 10x10 and 12x12.

How many hours are included in the package?

I certainly understand being paid by the hour.  But there is no way to truly know how many hours you will need till your wedding day is already happening.  Timelines rarely go as planned.  If you have 6 hours or 8 hours and you hit that number before your first dance, you have to choose if you want to pay more or miss moments.  We don't want to rush your evening or miss special moments. We want to capture more than just the standard photos.

We list hours as a guidline but rarely charge for extra hours.  Not once since 2011 have we charged for extra hours.

Do you include engagement photos in your packages?  Do we have the copyright release and high res images?

Typically yes, but it’s completely up to you.  Yes and Yes.

Do You Charge For Travel?

Most destination weddings are photographed by our Senior and Master photographers.  If that is who you hire, there is no charge for travel for our one person team.  That offer cannot be combined with other discounts.

Anything within 1 hour of our Reading studio is not counted as a destination wedding.  

If you have a unique situation, we will customize a package.
