WEDDING DAY PHILOSOPHY

My wedding coverage is a little different than most, because I don't offer multiple-hour packages. I hold the philosophy that as a wedding photographer, I should be more interested in my craft and your day than how many hours I'm clocking. I have an option A or B, if you will, and the only difference is having one or two photographers. 

I believe that choosing your wedding photographer(s) is one of the most important decisions you'll make while planning your wedding. Yes, your dress will be amazing and you'll probably want delicious food, and I believe those things do matter. With the exception of your photos, however, nothing lasts past your wedding day. Your venue will be used by another couple, your dress will hang in your closet, the beer will (most likely) be gone. Most importantly, you'll have your spouse, but I hope you also have a collection of images that can remind you over and over again of the covenant you entered on your wedding day. That's the point of the wedding after all. 

My shooting style is very laid-back and detail-oriented - I often use the word "photojournalism" to describe my work.  My goal is to capture the emotion and humanness that exists in every relationship but is unique to each couple. I don't run through a shot list. Every photograph I take is directed by your natural interactions with one another, combined with my creative direction. You'll find that my wedding coverage focuses on documenting the day and not handing you a gallery full of random photographs.

A 50% retainer is required at the time of the contract to secure a wedding date for all collections and vendors. 


COVERAGE A

Each wedding collection is crafted to offer you everything you need for your wedding day. There are no 4 or 6 hour packages because I believe in being present for the entire day. 

  • Consultation meeting: often completed over Skype or FaceTime, a consultation meeting is about 30 minutes and serves as a time for us to get to know one another better and discuss the many details of your wedding day. A detailed questionnaire follows the consultation. 
  • Up to 9 hour of wedding coverage: I've learned that a 9 hour spread covers everything from the end of getting ready until the end of your reception. 
  • A day-of schedule: To ensure that every important moment is covered in the 9 hour spread, I create your wedding schedule based on your goals and visions of the day. 
  • Photo gallery: Your images are delivered through Pixieset and the collection includes full personal printing and distribution rights to every high-resolution photo in your wedding gallery. You may print and hand out your photos, personally, for as long as you wish. 
  • 2 photographers: Collection A includes two full-time photographers.

Collection begins at $4,250. Travel fees and PA sales tax are the only additional fees. 

COVERAGE B

Collection B is crafted identically to Collection A, but includes only one photographer, Autumn. If needed, we can discuss the option of having a second shooter for part of the day. 

  • Consultation meeting: often completed over Skype or FaceTime, a consultation meeting is about 30 minutes and serves as a time for us to get to know one another better and discuss the many details of your wedding day. A detailed questionnaire follows the consultation. 
  • Up to 9 hour of wedding coverage: I've learned that a 9 hour spread covers everything from the end of getting ready until the end of your reception. 
  • A day-of schedule: To ensure that every important moment is covered in the 9 hour spread, I create your wedding schedule based on your goals and visions of the day. 
  • Photo gallery: Your images are delivered through Pixieset and the collection includes full personal printing and distribution rights to every high-resolution photo in your wedding gallery. You may print and hand out your photos, personally, for as long as you wish. 
  • 1 photographer: Collection B includes Autumn as your photographer. 

Collection begins at $3,750. Travel fees and PA sales tax are the only additional fees. 


ENGAGEMENT SHOOT PHILOSOPHY

Rather unsurprisingly, I'd like to think, my engagement shoot philosophy runs similarly to my wedding philosophy: the focus should be on making your love and relationship come through in the photographs and nothing else. 

Engagement sessions run about 1.5 hours long and can include as many locations, outfits, or experiences you can think to include! I don't run through a shot list and I feed off of your natural couple vibe because - more than anything - I want you to look at the images and think, "This is us."

If you've booked your wedding with me, your engagement shoot is $500 with added travel fees. If you're only interested in an engagement shoot, they are $600 with added travel fees. 


THE EXTRAS: VIDEOGRAPHER, ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHER, & WEDDING ALBUMS

VIDEO

I'm very excited to share that I've added a full-time videographer to my team. Sam joined me at a few weddings in 2016 but will officially launch with the 2017 season. You can see a collection of his work here

Video collection ($2,250 plus travel fees and PA sales tax) includes:
All day video coverage alongside of a photographer (up to 9 hours)
A short film, 3-5 minutes, of the day's highlights delivered via USBs
All raw video footage from the entire wedding day delivered via USBs
Extra: extended highlights for the short film

 

ASSOCIATE

So, there are two things that could happen during the booking process. One, I'm already booked, or two, I'm outside of your budget. No hard feelings - it happens! For these two reasons, I'm launching my first associate photographer for the 2017 season. Kriste has been trained by me and will offer couples the exact same love and detailed coverage as I do. All of your wedding photos are still edited by me in order to keep our aesthetic cohesive and consistent. You can learn more information about Kriste and using an associate photographer right here.  

Kriste is available for $2,750 plus travel fees and PA sales tax. 

WEDDING ALBUM

Get your photos off of your computer and printed forever! I personally design and develop each wedding album for our clients and then print through RedTree Albums. RedTree is a phenomenal printing company and I can do nothing but rave about their quality and exceptional materials. Your wedding photos deserve to be stored someplace else besides the depths of your hard drive.
