How much do you charge?
Let's get the big question out of the way first, yeah?
Local Weddings - starting at $2500
Out-of-state Weddings - starting at $3500
International Weddings - Starting at $6500
Elopements - $1500
Engagement, family, and other similar sessions - $500
Of course, every event is different and every client has different needs, so I'm always happy to move things around so that you can get exactly what you need (or as close to it as possible).
Disclaimer: my prices and packages can change without notice. If they do change after you contact me, I will honor the prices and packages listed when you first reached out to me.
The other big question! The answer is "it depends", but all my wedding packages include a minimum of 7 hours of coverage, an engagement session, and a neat wooden box filled with 5x7 prints. ALL packages also include an online gallery with high resolution files and rights to print. Don't worry, I'm not gonna get you in my studio and try to sell you individual images for $350 a pop, nobody wants that (and if we're being completely honest I don't even have a studio).
How long have you been shooting for?
I've been taking photos since I was in high school and I'm 29 now, I started focusing on weddings about 3 years ago and haven't looked back since.
Do you travel?
When are we leaving? Where are we going? LET'S GO ALREADY!!
But if you want a serious answer, yes, I definitely do travel. Anywhere in Southern California falls under the local wedding category, travel to Central and Northern California (i.e. anywhere beyond Ventura County) is an extra $500, while travel for out of state and international weddings is included in the appropriate packages. Please contact me for more details.
What's included in your packages?
It varies, but ALL my packages include an engagement session, a minimum of 8 hours of coverage, an online gallery with high-res files, rights to print, as well as some prints delivered in a super cool custom wooden box. Some packages also include albums and other products. Get in touch for more details about what's included.
Do you have a second shooter?
It depends. Only my middle and top packages include a second shooter, but I will, at my discretion, have a second shooter with me for a few hours if I deem it absolutely necessary (e.g. bride and groom getting ready in separate locations). That said, you can add a second shooter for an extra flat fee.
How long does it take for the photos to be ready?
You'll get a sneak peek within 3 days. I try my best to deliver my weddings within 5-6 weeks, though when things get busy it can take up to 6-8 weeks. Smaller session typically take less, around 2-3 weeks.
How will the photos be delivered?
I deliver all my photos as high resolution files on a private online gallery. You'll be able to view, favorite, and download any of the photos, as well as share the gallery with all your friends and family so you can show off your beautiful pictures and make them all SO envious ;) And as mentioned above, you'll also receive the super cool custom wooden box filled with even cooler looking prints.
How many photos do you usually deliver?
This depends on a number of factors, like how long the event lasts, how many people are involved, etc., but on average you can expect about 60-90 photos per hour of coverage.
Do you edit the images?
Yes, all images are edited for color, exposure, etc. to achieve the same general look as the images you can see on here and on my Instagram. I generally apply some light object and blemish removal, but any heavier retouching will have to be requested and paid for separately.
Can we see a full gallery?
You bet! Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a contact form and I will send you a link to it.
What's the booking process like?
Fill out a contact form to get started. I will get back to you and we can talk more details to figure out the best package for you, ideally over coffee or a drink if you're local, but Skype or a simple phone call are ok too. Once you're ready to book, all that's required is 50% of the total to lock in your date and a signed copy of the contract. After that we're in business and we can start planning your engagement session and everything else!
