IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT PRICING:

When researching photographers I recommend looking beyond the numbers, at least initially, as it’s important to compare apples to apples. I work hard to customize the experience and deliverables for each of my clients and that’s a hard number to package. As a boutique studio, I accept a maximum of 15 weddings per year, in order to give my clients the individual attention a wedding necessitates. Which in turn means an increased attention to detail and a resource throughout your planning/design process. In addition, I personally and individually edit every image to ensure consistency and style throughout your gallery.

I familiarize myself with your aesthetic and photography goals for the day through Skype and/or in-person meetings. And although I may have worked at your venue in the past, I won’t simply come with a list of shots that worked for someone else in the space. To me, personalization and discovery are key.

In some cases I include an assistant throughout key moments of the day (typically getting ready until the start of the reception) and a second camera during the ceremony. My assistants, however, are not second shooters. If a second photographer is a must have for you, this is something I offer occasionally, and does make sense with my coverage in some situations, however, it is rare for me to work with, or require a second. If this is make-or-break for you, I recommend seeking out a team that shoots 100% of the time together. Not someone with an intern, or a new graduate learning the ropes; seek transparency. Style is why many couples contract a specific photographer, so it’s important to ensure the work you fell in love with is also what you’ll see in the deliverables. This is why I strive to cover your wedding with a well laid out timeline, rather than defaulting to two photographers.
