"How much will it cost to photograph my wedding?"
The best answer is, "It varies." But since most of us have to live with budgets, here are some numbers that will help you plan. The following are based on a wedding at which a photographer and an assistant can be everywhere they need to be to capture your wedding images. If your wedding is huge or locations are remote, additional charges may apply. If your wedding is very small and intimate, some savings may apply. Please call or email for specific answers about costs for your event.
Wedding sessions start at $1000 for four hours. Six hours is $1400. Eight hours is $1800. Each additional hour after 8 is $200/hr. All wedding sessions are based on our actual "time at event". Rest assured that there are MANY more hours that we invest in creating your wedding images, including selection of proofs, image editing, and online album creation, among others.Those services are included with your session fee. All wedding sessions include your digital images downloaded to your choice of media, access to an online album for selection of additional prints, and one 10x10 or 8x12 wedding album.
