Photographing weddings and life milestone portraits are similar in that my process is designed to help us develop a personal relationship. With weddings, we plan and play with ideas together well before the event, and I take care of the details behind the scenes, so on your big day, I already know a lot about you, and you can have exactly what you want. While life milestone portraits are simpler, it's still very important I get to know you. See how that works below.
Wedding day coverage starts at $2700. My price list includes several packages, and we can always customize them to fit your needs. Discounts apply for off-season and weekday weddings. Prime weekends always go quickly, so please book well in advance.
Here’s generally what you can expect.
Information. First please send me your information using this form. I’ll let you know if I'm available and send you a brief online questionnaire to complete. Once I know more about your event, I’ll put together a package of samples and the fee menu and send them to you through US Mail.
First Meeting. We’ll set a time to meet each other. You can see more of my work and sample album designs, and we can talk more specifically about your hopes for the day. If you decide to work with me, we'll confirm the date, and I’ll email you a contract to sign online. Then the excitement of planning begins.
Engagement session. Most wedding packages include an engagement session. You can see some of those photographs in this gallery. Not only is this a great opportunity for some casual photographs, it’s one of the main ways I get to know you. Meanwhile, we are exchanging ideas, meeting at the wedding location to talk about lighting, formal (and not so formal) photographs, and generally making sure we're completely prepared for the big day.
The Big Day. At this point everything has already been planned, embrace the excitement and focus on having a great time! I’ll make sure you get to share the memories forever.
Galleries, Prints, and Albums. I'll post a teaser with some images and a slideshow on my blog a week or two after your wedding. Within a month or so, you and your guests will be able to see all of the images from your wedding online, and be able to proof and purchase them very conveniently. Your wedding album could be ready within three months, depending when you want to pick and choose, often the hardest part! Many couples simply pick the most important ones, and let me do the rest of the work. You can tweak the choices before we go to press.
Travel is my next love after my family and photography, and music, and skiing. Actually it's hard to rank my top loves. If you are planning a wedding out of the area, especially at a Swiss Alps ski resort with killer music, think about how incredible it will be having me along to document the entire awesome experience. Destination weddings start at $4,600 plus travel, hotel, and meals. Let me know your plans when you fill out this contact form, or call for more information.
I love to photograph pregnancies, births, new babies, children and families, high school seniors, engagements, and other family events. Getting to know you and your family is what makes the difference between a pretty picture and a photograph that feels personal and unique. I'm lucky to have worked with some of my clients for many years. We feel like we are an important part of each other's lives. Many have become fast friends.
If you are interested, please start by sending me information using this form, and I'll send you some more information about how I work and what you can expect. We can then speak about setting up the shoot.
Local photo sessions start at $350. Discounts apply for repeat clients and client referrals. Fees depend on the location and number of people.
