What’s included in wedding and elopement packages?
Each package includes different things, but here’s a general idea of what I offer:
Vendor recommendations and a free consultation before the wedding. I’ll buy you coffee, offer advice, and we will chat details and logistics!
Wedding planning help (I’ll get you my 30 page helpful guide!)
An online viewing gallery ready in less than 4 weeks
Proposal or Engagement sessions (see HERE) Add a proposal to the wedding for a 20% discount off the proposal session!
Luxury heirloom photo albums (see below)
Rehearsal dinner coverage
Bride + groom portrait sessions
I will edit your photos naturally and beautifully. You're stunning just being you and I want to capture that. ;)
Extra retouches on your favorite images
You can expect me to not only create beautiful images that will capture all of the magic of your wedding, but I will also help the stresses/excitement of the day run smoothy. I'll fix messy hair, dance with guests, and join the celebration.
Stunning prints, USB, and linen keepsake box to house them
Full-resolution + downloadable files + personal use copyright release
What are your prices?
I want to emphasize that my packages largely depend on your needs. I do things a little differently than other photographers in that I really want to make your day the best it can possibly be, no matter your needs. So if that means you have a destination wedding, you’re on a tight budget, or you want lots included, it’s all wonderful by me!
The best way we can both figure something out that will work perfectly for you in the budget you need, is by collaborating together! :) So let’s chat. I can’t wait to hear from you!
Most people invest $4000 in their wedding
Elopements start at $600
Engagement sessions start at $300
Bride and Groom portrait sessions start at $300
Adventurous sessions start at $650
Can you send me an exact quote?
Absolutely. Send me as many details as you can, and I’ll give you exact numbers. It’s annoying when you find hidden fees or can’t get a real number out of someone, and I won’t do that to you.
What if our wedding is not in San Diego?
What?! You want me to travel to your wedding? Let me pack my bags! I am a huge travel buff. I’ve been to 20 countries, & I also love traveling around the US. There's so much more I want to see in the world and I would be happy to travel for your wedding! We can also talk about what trains/flying would look like if it will be a longer trip.
When do we get our photos?
Don't want to wait 6-12 weeks to get your photos? No prob. I'll get your edited images to you in under 4 weeks, guaranteed. Let's be real, I can't wait to deliver your images, and I’ll likely get you them in 2 weeks. I’ll be sending you sneak peeks way before then, so you can post!
How do we print our photos?
You get printing rights free, AKA you decide what you want. You can purchase through my site (easy peasy) or go elsewhere. I don’t upsell printing. You get just the production price, so you won’t have to spend hundreds after you’ve already made a big investment in your wedding. No sweat!
Do you make wedding photo albums?
YES! I’d love to create an album for you. Albums come included in some wedding packages, or you can add it on a la carte. The albums are gorgeous, customizable, and have a luxury minimalist vibe that allows your images to truly be the focal point (they’re seriously gorgeous). There are so many different albums, and you get to pick out some (or all) of your favorite photos, the cover color, customization, and I’ll do the dirty work. You can even gift specialty albums to parents or get guest books for the guests to sign at the wedding. Ask me for the info guide!
Can you help us find other vendors?
Yes! I have some incredible vendors I would love to recommend to you. I also have a partnerships with some vendors that will greatly help you! Just ask!
Will you have any assistants with you on our wedding day?
I have some fantastic go-to second and third shooters/assistants I love to have at weddings to capture all the details of the day. Having more photographers means we will be able to get unique angles on everything and you have more to choose from. Most packages include another photographer, but you can always add them on. However, for most weddings/elopements (depending on the number of people/location), I am very capable of photographing on my own. In fact, I’ve shot most of my weddings with just me, myself, and I.
$70 an hour to add a second shooter.
Do you do proposals or engagement sessions?
YES! These are some of my favorite parts of my job. If you’re looking to get down on one knee, she most likely wants it documented. I’d love to coordinate with you on a perfect plan of action. I’ll go incognito—I’ve hidden behind trees in the forest, hiked up mountains at dawn, staked out in flower fields secretly, and pretended to be an innocent bystander bystander with a friend to act like a decoy! Let’s come up with a plan so you can do your thing while I do mine (shhh!).
So let’s talk after you got a ring on it. Engagement sessions are great for your save-the-dates, invites, and wedding website. They also give you guys a chance to get to know me and get comfortable in front of the camera. I cannot stress enough how much smoother your wedding will be because of that.
How long have you been in the business?
Weddings were my first love when I started shooting professionally almost 6 years ago. Since then, I’ve grown into my style and have enjoyed shooting weddings and elopements all over SoCal, plus at beautiful destinations around the US. My work has been featured in galleries, magazines, and a museum, and I’ve been featured at wedding shows in San Diego.
