Pricing & FAQ
Making sure each couple I work with receives the photography experience they expect and deserve is paramount to me. Because of this, I accept a limited number of wedding bookings per calendar year. Portrait sessions typically book several months in advance and weddings are often booked a year or more in advance.
All-day wedding photography collections begin at $3000 for eight hours of coverage and an engagement session.
Elopement coverage begins at $1500 and 90 minute portrait sessions for families and ala carte engagement sessions held near Seattle are $600.
I offer a variety of collection options and know that wedding photography is not a one-size-fits-all service, so I am happy to customize packages to fit your needs and budget. Let me know what you're looking for and we'll build something together for you!
All wedding collections include an engagement session, a USB of high resolution images with a print release, an online gallery for sharing your images with family, a collection of 5x7" fine art prints & timeline consultation.
Additional photographers, photo booth, heirloom leather bound albums and worldwide travel are all available and included in custom collection options. Please include a few notes about your vision and wedding plans when you send over an email or fill out a contact form, along with any questions that I can answer for you right off the bat.
Ready to book?
A signed contract and $1000 retainer secures your date exclusively for you and also means that we can get started on engagement session planning or timeline consultation as soon as you're ready. The remainder of your photography package balance is due at least 30 days before your wedding date.
What is the turnaround time for images? Wedding photo galleries are returned within 8 weeks of the wedding date and engagement and portrait sessions are returned between 4-6 weeks after the session date.
How many images will we get? I return about 75 images per hour of shooting at weddings. Portrait and family sessions vary depending on our plans and length of session, but are generally at least 100 images.
Will you travel? I will travel anywhere happily! Travel fees are based on available coach or economy travel options. Destination wedding coverage requires two nights of accommodation in a basic hotel room near the venue (the night before and night of the wedding).
Do you have a 2nd photographer? About half of my couples choose to have a 2nd photographer. I recommend having a 2nd photographer when there is a large guest list or bridal party, a longer window coverage is needed, or if there is a more compact timeline the day of the wedding. A 2nd photographer allows you to get different angles of the ceremony, more getting ready photos, and more guest candid shots throughout the day.
What kind of gear do you use? I arrive to each wedding I photograph with a minimum of 4-5 cameras with me! I prefer to shoot with Hasselblad and Canon film cameras when time and lighting allows, and then I switch to shooting with Canon digital cameras during the reception.
