The Next Steps

Ok! So here we are. You’ve looked through my galleries, price points, maybe now you even know all about my assortment of pets and favorite coffee. So what happens next? A few things, all really easy for you!

Step One: We have a consult, either in person or a video call, so we can get to know each other a little and see if we are a good fit for each other. No pressure, and I will even buy your coffee! After going through all of the details, we usually set up a rough draft of a timeline (if there isn’t already one) and from there I can give some recommendations on coverage and albums, and answer any questions you have for me.

Step Two: Booking! I e-mail over an agreement and after we have both looked over and signed everything, I am officially yours and booked for the date!

Step Three:  Your engagement session to have even more fun before the big day! Images can be used for save the dates, reception books, and for you to remember this time.

Step Four: The wedding itself! I will be there with myself and an additional shooter if desired, observing and doing my thing!

Step Five: Editing! After the wedding, I hand edit each of the best images and upload them into an online wedding gallery within 4 weeks of the ceremony. These are yours to download and share with all your loved ones, and you will also retain printing rights to the images.

Step Six: Preserving your day! After your gallery is delivered, we set up a album and print consultation so you can not only share your images on social media, but have them displayed in home too!

Throughout the planning process, from consultation to albums in hand (and beyond) I am here for you!  

Starting Prices

Engagement Sessions – $450

These are a must have before your wedding day! It is a great way for us to get to know each other, and for me to see you interact as a couple. Also excellent for recall on the wedding day, “Hey! Remember that pose we did during your engagement session? Let’s do that again.” It’s almost like a photography rehearsal, and I have noticed couples who do their engagement sessions make the wedding portraits go by just a touch faster. These are especially great for couples who feel awkward in front of the camera. The bonus? Every one of my wedding packages include engagement sessions!

Are you already married or together with someone and just want a couples session? This works for that too!

Wedding Prices – $2700+

Wedding packages start at 6 hours of coverage for $2700, with my wedding couples spending on average $4000. All of my packages include an engagement session, all of the edited images available for download in an online gallery, and a hard copy of all of your images on a USB. I do offer a la carte options for hourly rates, an additional shooter, day after sessions, albums and prints. Price depends on so many factors, so I customize packages specifically for you! We typically will set this up over some coffee or over a phone call so I can get all of the details of the wedding to help determine the best fit. 

Elopements/Small Ceremony – $1200+

Elopements have evolved quite a bit over the years. They not only encompass the “run off” together quick ceremonies, but also more intimate celebrations that are really a clear focus on the couple getting married. Sometimes it’s in a backyard, a courthouse, on top of a mountain, or a walk down the beach. My prices start at 2 hours of coverage for $1200, with couples spending on average $2000. All of my packages include travel up to 4 hours from Oak Harbor, all of the edited images available for download in an online gallery, and a hard copy of all of your images on a USB. I offer a la carte options for additional hourly rates, an additional shooter, albums and prints. Like with a full day wedding, price depends on so many factors, so I customize packages specifically for you and your elopement needs. I do offer just ceremony and portrait pricing too, so please e-mail me for a specific price list!
