A wise man once said, “you get what you pay for.” And it’s my experience that this old saying is especially true when it comes to wedding photography. I’ve had countless married couples tell me that their greatest regret was skimping on their wedding photography budget and hiring a friend, relative or hobbyist photographer to memorialize one of the most unforgettable days of their lives, only to end up with a collection of forgettable imagery.
Don’t be this couple. Seriously.
You don’t have to hire me, but please learn from these people’s mistakes. Hire a true, trained professional with experience and a unique vision to photograph your union, a photographer who understands your love and can express its unique beauty. Remember, this level of creativity does not come cheap — that’s why people in our industry say “investment” instead of “price.” Please acknowledge, respect and value these talents in our industry. Having realistic expectations about pricing in the wedding industry and prioritizing what services YOU believe have the most worth and then adjusting your budget accordingly is paramount in the planning stages. An excellent article by A Colorado Courtship details this and many other insights into the budgeting process and is a highly recommended read.
That being said, I strive to keep my wedding photography package costs in line with the quality and unique nature of my style and coverage.
All wedding base packages begin at eight (8) hours and pricing fluctuates depending on time of year, so please reach out to me for current rates.
I offer packages with competitive market rates, including free travel & acommodations, to select domestic US cities whose natural beauty, histories and cultures inspire me and complement the unique couples I photograph. These markets include:
New York / Philadelphia
If you’re not in one of these US markets, no sweat! Destination shoots combine two of the greatest things in life — travel and photography — and I am at my most inspired when photographing amazing couples in incredible, unique places. Send me a request and we can chat about your photography needs.
In addition, I’m pleased to offer worldwide destination wedding photography packages. Pricing for international destination sessions are based upon cost including airfare, transportation, 2-3 nights’ stay at a hotel and possible extra coverage. If you’re interested in a domestic or international destination package, please reach out for a custom quote.
