the rule about pricing is you're never supposed to talk about pricing.

wedding photography pricing

My favorite part of being a wedding photographer is photographing your dog at your wedding. Let's face it, nothing represents unconditional love better than a dog. In lieu of dogs at the wedding, I'm also a fan of gluten free desserts, non-traditional decor, weddings with costumes, vows that make me laugh, Halloween weddings, and taking photos at sunset. I secretly hope someone will take me to the Hobbiton Movie Set in New Zealand sometime for a Lord of the Rings themed wedding (huge discounts offered if that's you). 

When you're ready to book your wedding with me just contact me and we'll star the process. I require a 50% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract to book your date. Photographing weddings where I get to celebrate your less-traditional elements has been one of the most rewarding experiences over the last decade. I look forward to working with you!

This is how I roll

(It's awesome btw)

engagement sessions

They are more than just practice with your photographer. 

Some want engagement sessions for their save the date cards, their wedding invitations, or to practice with their photographer so the wedding day photos will be the absolute best they can be. These are all great reasons to have engagement photos done. 

However, the real reason to get engagement photos done is to get beautiful photos of yourselves, relaxed and away from the chaotic and busy environment of a wedding. Not only that, but the experience of getting photographed is an amazing way to reconnect. I encourage your engagement session to be a little bit like a date. Take the day off from work, take your time getting ready, go somewhere uniquely special to your story, and make memories laughing, reminiscing, and telling your story to me. Engagement photos are a great way to bring you closer and give you lasting visual photographs to commemorate what it's like to just hang out together. 

Sessions take approximately 1-2 hours. Bring an extra outfit and let's meet at one of your favorite spots at sunset and enjoy!

1. How much is the retainer?

Here are some frequently asked questions about my pricing:

The retainer is 50% to reserve your date and ensure nobody else can book it.

2. How do I book?

If you're ready to book, just shoot me an email to see if your date is available and then you sign the contract and you pay your retainer. The retainer payment and contract signing is all taken care of digitally online. 

3. Can we meet before I book?

I live in a pretty remote part of the mountains in Colorado! That can make it a bit difficult for me to meet all of my clients in-person. However, I'm happy to ease your fears and meet on Skype, Facetime, or do a phone call before you book. 

4. How soon should I book?

As soon as possible! Especially September, October, and other significant dates like New Year's Eve or Halloween weekend. 

5. When is the final payment due?

Final payment is due by the date of the wedding. However, I do send out your final invoice as soon as we confirm the timeline for the day in case you want to get it out of the way prior to the wedding day.

6. The minimum booking is 4 hours. I don't need that many. Do you have options for less hours?

Custom packages are available upon request. 

7. What if I decide I need more hours later?

You can always add on more time later at the current hourly rate.

8. Do you offer prints and albums?

I do! However, you get the digital files included in your pricing so you can always order prints and albums on your own. Check out my information on printing to get more details. 

9. Are the digital images included in your pricing?

Yes! Once the wedding is done I cull through your photos and get rid of duplicates, test shots for lighting and then I edit and process the rest for you. 

10. Do you edit the photos?

I sure do! I spend as much time as I do shooting, doing the editing of your photos. I edit them to fix things like exposure, lighting, and any retouching to fix things that are temporary (like blemishes). 

11. Do you provide black and white photos?

I love black and white photos, so I provide a copy of all your photos in both color and black and white. That way you don't have to choose. 

12. I'm having a costume wedding at the Hobbiton movie set in New Zealand. Will you travel for my wedding?

If you want to take this hobbit to Hobbiton, just pay for my travel and the wedding photography is on me. I'm ready check the box of the number one thing on my wedding photography bucketlist. Also talk to me if you are having a Harry Potter costume themed wedding at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I'll accio over my custom pricing list for that too.
