HERE’S THE DEAL…MONEY IS AWKWARD TO TALK ABOUT.
Listen. I would love to be able to photograph weddings and couples in love fo’ free. It’s that great of a job. But because we live in a capitalist society where life ain’t cheap, I charge money for this service. Got a budget? I’m right there with you and totally get that throwing a big party to celebrate your love is expensive. But when you think about it, your photos and dress are all that’s really left and some people sell the dress (mine is still hanging in my guest room closet — ooops). This is not to say you should spend all your money on the photos; just that these images are an investment in your family history, the family you are starting on your wedding day. They will be how you tell your kids and grandkids about your love story. It’s a big job, something I don’t take lightly, and I want my clients to feel the same way. To them, photos aren’t just something you should have, they’re what they want to have.
All of this to say…don’t let price be the reason you don’t reach out. My retainer is $750 and the rest of your package is due one week before your big day. There’s payment plans to be had, so I promise it can be totally doable. If you really connect with me, and my work, and think we could really do something cool together, EMAIL ME and let’s talk. Just remember this is my full time career and I have to survive just like you do.
