Below is my pricing structure for my wedding day and related services.
First, choose your length of service for your wedding day. Most couples choose the longer option, giving them coverage of all the preparations as well as an hour or so on the dance floor that night. Both selections include your high resolution digital image collection with thoughtful and creative editing.. You can expect your images to be preserved and presented to you in traditional color, as well as many in black and white, and several in vintage or pop color when an extra bit of digital artistry is called for. Editing is a creative process for me and I enjoy turning your wedding day into a work of art for you to enjoy, share and love for a lifetime. Your image files can be used to order prints and products from your favorite company (I always recommend mpix.com) , share on social media, or just enjoy on a digital frame. You own them to enjoy and create with, to your heart's content.
Up to 7 hours: $2500 (Typically fine when you have a single venue for both wedding and reception)
Up to 10 hours: $2800 (Most wedding days with two venues call for this for complete documentary and portrait coverage.)
*If you are getting married in Mid- Missouri on a day OTHER than a Saturday and it's not a holiday weekend, subtract $500 from either package.
Also, will you be wanting two photographers on your team? There's no better way to ensure great coverage of the groom the morning of, as well as even more behind-the-scenes moments. I recommend a second shooter especially when your guest list exceeds 300. $750, and you can expect a larger collection of images.
Next, will you be needing an engagement session? I highly recommend it for a couple of reasons. First, it lets us build a rapport with one another, making you very comfortable and confident being photographed on your wedding day. Think of your engagement session as a romantic date! As nervous as you or your groom may be, I promise you will both have a great time and you'll have a fun and flirty set of images to help you celebrate your engagement and use for elements of your wedding day. Your engagement session is $400 and comes with your retouched digital files for personal use.
Bridal Portrait Session:
If you are getting married in the winter I strongly recommend booking a bridal portrait session on the day you have your practice hair and makeup. This will take the gamble out of whether we are able to give you due attention in good light on your wedding day. 1 hour, $350 and includes 20 retouched images.
Looking for the perfect gift for your fiance? Surprise him with an album showing off the hottest version of you!. This is a surprise for him, but a real treat for you. You'll enjoy your time in the studio feeling and looking gorgeous. Together we'll create images that will make him even happier he's chosen you to spend the rest of his life with.

Lastly, since your digital files come with every package, all that's left is your album. Yes, you can make your own coffee table book with your digital files, but my albums are the highest quality on the market and are the finest way to show off your images for a lifetime of enjoyment. There is really no comparison between an artisan wedding album and the photo books available on the mass market. I have many of these in the studio to show you when we have our first visit. Each one is custom designed by me with your favorite images.
30 Page Heirloom Album - $500
40 Page Heirloom Album - $600
30 Page Layflat Album (semi-rigid pages) - $300
40 Page Layflat Album (semi-rigid pages) - $400
(Most of my wedding albums are 10"x10" or similar in size but not necessarily square.)
8"x8" 30 page Layflat Album - $300
How to book your wedding:
If you think we can create a package that's right for you, send me a note or give me a call at 573-268-3321 so we can see if I have your date available! I'd love to meet with you in my studio in downtown Columbia to talk in length about your photography needs. For my out-of-town couples I am happy to do a phone interview. Once you've decided if I'm right for you, I require a $1,000 deposit upon booking to make sure your date is reserved for just for you.
As you can tell from my image collection, I do enjoy shooting a beach wedding from time to time. Just let me know if you have something special in the works and I'll do my best to be there for you!
