The number of photographs depends on numerous things – the number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events. My bare minimum would be 75 images per every hour of contracted time. Most of the times, this number is much, much higher. I do believe in quality over quantity. I edit out any unflattering pictures as well as eyes that are closed, etc.
I know you are very excited to see some of you images from one of the biggest and most important days of your life. To accommodate this desire I will post a couple of images the very next day to facebook that you may tag yourself in immediately. A week later, I will send you a personalized app for your smart phone or tablet that will have approximately 20-30 of your best images from your wedding day that you will be able to share immediately with friends and family. It will take about six weeks after your wedding date for all of your files to go online into your online gallery and two weeks after that your images will be available for you to pick up or be mailed.
The online gallery is a private, password protected section on my website where all of your wedding photographs will be placed online for you, your family and friends to view. It is also a secure shopping cart, which allows for additional ordering of prints. All you have to do is provide the password to anyone who you want to be able to view your images.
Once I have completed your files, I can then begin your album design. This usually takes about three to four weeks to customize and put together. I will send you proof pages of the album, and once you have signed off on it, I will send it to print. Your album should arrive four to six weeks after that.
Rehearsal of the wedding and rehearsal dinner coverage is available if you’d like to add it to your collection, otherwise I do not include that in my normal coverage of your event.
I do have a minimum and that is six hours. I have found that if you are wanting coverage before the wedding of you getting ready, followed by the ceremony, formal family portraits, unposed portraits of the wedding party and bride and groom and then the reception, that you will need at least six hours. This will allow you not feel rushed or crunched to try and fit everything in just for your photographs. If you do not need six hours because you are doing an elopement, I do have separate pricing and time frames for that.
