Wedding & Event prices do not include physical prints. All photography and videos will be returned on your choice of a digital CD, Flashdrive, or Direct Digital Downloads from my website. If you would like prints such as wallets, 8x10's, canvases, and posters, or any specialty items such as mugs and keychains in addition to your CD/Flashdrive, you can order them thru RBP; we tend to have better prices than the average printing company!
Because Weddings and Events are generally more time consuming, the packages and services offered are slightly different than studio pricing. Please remember that I am a solo photographer which means I work alone (without an assistant) and will only ever be photographing or recording at once, never both at the same time. When deciding how long you will need me, please take into consideration all aspects of the wedding that you want captured and how long each one lasts.
Do you simply need the ceremony photographed or the reception, too? Maybe you want one part photographed but the other filmed so you can watch it later--For example: you might photos of everything but you literally only want the "I do" moment recorded. Or you might want the whole ceremony photographed but the entire reception recorded just to look back on those dance moves! Some people aren't fond of photos, maybe you were hoping for just a videographer with no real need for photography. On the other hand, maybe you love photos but feel no need for videos. Many people treasure aspects such as the preparation leading up to the event, as it is incredibly special---Perhaps you want your makeup process in the photoshoot, or you want to get that great photo of your mom helping you get dressed.
$150.00Celebrity Sessions are great for weddings!! (Option A) These is the perfect opportunity to get those studio portrait images of the bride & groom! This session includes the main person(s) of the event. I.e, the birthday kid, the bride & groom, the nominee/winners, etc. For a wedding, this includes the bride and groom, and the actual wedding court (i.e, the people who walk down the aisle and stand with them.) Please note that the $150 does NOT includes the fee that is necessary to purchase the background of your choice. Background prices vary by colors and images chosen.
Red Carpet Photo Op
Want to have your family, friends, and guests to join in on the red carpet fun? The celebrity session only includes the main persons of the event, but choosing The Red Carpet Photo Op allows you to also let your guests get in on the action.
Now everyone who attends can get a photo with the bride and the groom, or your friends can model and walk the "red carpet!"
Choose between two photo setups! Option B and C are listed above! Let your guests be the stars, too!
(*There is NOT literally a red carpet, it's a background/design in the color of your choice.
Price of background varies by what you choose.) Take me back to the top
Photo Op B: $225.00Photo Op B is a static setup in a designated area in the venue. You choose two hours during your event--they can follow each other, start and close your event, be spaced out, whatever you want; the two hours are at your disposal---and your guests use those two hours to line up and stop by to have their photo taken red carpet style on the colored background of your choice. They can even leave Video Messages to the host/hostess/guests of honor! Every guest/family gets 2 individual photos taken.
Photo Op C: $350.00Photo Op C is also a static setup, however, you pay for guest photography during the entire event--meaning your family, friends, and guests can stop by anytime they like, as many times they like, with as many friends as they want to have their photo taken! No photo limits! These can be taken as individuals, groups, or with the guests of honor. They can even leave Video Messages to the host/hostess/guests of honor! *If you still want candid photos in addition to the photo op center open throughout the reception, I can do that as well, but will close the photo op center for 30 minutes at a time in order to capture candids.
HighlightVideo:$50.00 per video. The highlight video is a short 5 -10 minute film. It's great for weddings! It's like a cute little movie trailer where I interview the bride & groom, family members, & friends and then edit it some great moments from your event.
