I hope you appreciate the fact that I’m not requiring you to contact me for my very affordable prices. I try to make things easy for my clients (even potential clients!).
Please use the Contact link above if you have additional questions or to see if your date is available. You can also call me directly at 757.563.4923. I look forward to hearing from you.
Note 1: I take many photos on your wedding day or at your engagement session. Not all of them are “good ones”. I cull the coverage deleting photos that are non flattering, embarrassing, blurry, eyes closed, etc. I edit all of the “keepers” in Adobe Photoshop CS (I do not use Adobe Lightroom, I edit each photo by hand, individually). When they are all adjusted to “print quality”, I categorize them all. This is what you will receive as a final product with the appropriate copyright release to do what you want with your photos.
Note 2: I upload all your photos to my lab in their respective categories. This is a great interface for you to be able to share your images with family and friends online. This is also a place where you can order low cost prints if you choose to do so. This gallery does not have an expiration date, and will be up for a minimum of 1 year. (I still have all the weddings I’ve done since going to this lab online since 2008).
Note 3: I will never, ever, send a substitute to your wedding. I will be there, personally.
Note 4: The $200 is good for engagement sessions located in the Hampton Roads area. If the session requires travel to the OBX, Richmond, DC, Williamsburg, etc, we’ll have to negotiate a fair rate for that. That 1 hour is pretty flexible. I generally won’t charge any extra unless the session goes over 2 hours. (very rare)
Note 5: I have two 2nd shooters that I’ve been working with for YEARS. They’re both excellent. I will not bring a 2nd shooter to your wedding who is not tried, true, and experienced in shooting with me.
Note 6: Crazy huh? But, 100% authentic. You pick the images you want in your album. I give you your options for style, size, cover materials, and finish. Then you simply pay my cost for the whole process. Most EXTREMELY high quality albums end up costing between $400-$600. (and before you ask the question, I’m sorry, but no, I cannot offer this service using someone else’s work as the source photos).
