I've created wedding packages designed to fit your needs, but all of them can be customized based on what you're looking for on your big day! Every package includes a second shooter within the cost, because I think it's just silly to shoot a wedding without another photographer there to capture the angles that I can't as a single human being! Feel free to send me a note and we can chat more about your day and talk through any and all questions you have. I've also included a list of frequently asked questions below, but I will answer any and everything I can that's not included below!
For equipment, I always carry at least two cameras and multiple lenses, plus extra memory cards and batteries. My second shooter will do the same, so if something happens, we will always have back ups! If something catastrophic happens to me and I cannot shoot your wedding, my second shooter will be available to step up as primary and we will find another photographer as her assistant from our large network of photographers in Charlotte. But in my years of shooting, this has never happened to me!
I pride myself in being able to get clients their images as quickly as possible, while still maintaining the highest quality of editing and standards in the final product. I will always give you at least a few sneak peek images within 24 hours of your event, with the remaining gallery being delivered within 4-6 weeks (most of the time, it’s even sooner than that!).
While I do not put an exact amount of final images I guarantee to deliver, you can rest assured that every single moment that matters to you will be captured in your gallery! Usually, wedding galleries are between 800-1,300 images. I always include both color and black and white options for you!
I do not usually provide the RAW images, and here’s why: Typically, if an image is not included in your gallery, that means that it did not make the final cut for a reason! I filter out hundreds of images that are either duplicates, not flattering (maybe you closed your eyes in a shot!), weird lighting, the list goes on. I strive to deliver the absolute BEST selection of images for your final gallery, so that you do not have to worry about any of your favorite images not making the cut.
I will provide you with an online link to a gallery of high-resolution images that is yours to access forever! You can share out with your friends and family, download single images, or download the full gallery. I would recommend saving the full gallery to your own personal hard drive as an extra back-up and for ease in accessing. I also save all of my photos to three different back-up locations to ensure they are preserved forever!
While I will always encourage you to share any Pinterest boards you’ve saved as inspiration, you do not need to send me a full shot list of images! Both myself and my second shooter are extremely confident that we will capture every single important moment of your day – both posed and candids! Please ask me to share some of my full wedding galleries with you so that you can get a sense of all of the shots we typically capture in a day!
My wedding packages include 8-10 hours of coverage, a second shooter, and an online gallery of high resolution images. Everything will be fully edited based on my style. I will work closely with you leading up to the wedding to plan out your timeline for the day, including if you do a first look or not, your family portraits, wedding party portraits, and all the juicy candid moments in between! Depending on the package you choose, there are some cost savings that include engagement sessions and/or bridal portrait sessions bundled in the price!
Engagement sessions can be such an amazing thing to consider doing for a number of reasons. 1. You get to know your photographer and feel more comfortable in front of the camera. 2. It can be a great trial run for your wedding hair and makeup to see how it looks in pictures before the big day. 3. It's a fun, no-stress time to connect with your fiance and get some great pics for your Save the Dates!
Elopements can be a great alternative to weddings and offer a a more intimate setting for couples to say their vows. I can create customized packages based on your elopement or travel needs that might be a better fit than my more traditional packages!
