When it comes to cost, what you're getting for your money is just as important as the budget itself.
First of all, expect good, solid teamwork from me. That's important because we're about to spend a lot of time together-the photographer is the one person who's with you from your last moments as a single person to your last dance at the reception. You can count on me to be a partner, a friend, a sharp set of eyes. Also, I have a great deal of wedding experience, which I am happy to share.
Second of all, I'm there to make your life easier. Weddings can be unpredictable, and that's why I don't charge by the hour. Let the day unfold at its own pace. I'll be there to shoot it start to finish, without the worry of extra costs. Another thing that's important is I'm easy to get along with. No one should have to put up with a moody photographer, especially during a wedding.
Third, I give you options-not packages. Flexibility is important. Also, I don't charge extra for black and white.
Fourth I don't push albums or other items that can add expense to photography costs.
And finally, with us you keep the negatives-at no additional charge, within two weeks of your wedding.
With all that, your whole wedding should cost about $2,500 - $2,900 to shoot.
