The wants of a couple that are planning to wed are as unique as they are. To keep things simple I offer a few creative packages as I have found couples appreciate simplicity in the decision making; yet every package is 100% customizable to ensure you get exactly what you want.
Wedding day coverage typically runs 8 to 10 hours but can be of any amount. When possible, I host the first client meetings (I call a ‘meet and greet’) at my home office where we discuss what you want in photography on the day of your weddings and keepsakes. We will review how I work, what you want out of your wedding photography, my time and technique in processing your images after the wedding, why professional printing services exist and when to use them, my elegant custom thank you cards and finally my coveted contemporary album options.
We also discuss the free online password protected gallery of your final images that you can share with family and friends around the world. When everything is all done you will receive a custom USB thumb drive with the final high resolution edited images. How many images will you get? Since every wedding is different I can’t give an exact number, but can say that from my years of experience that 500 is a good approximation for the typical 8 hour coverage.
Because I live in the eastern side of the beautiful Kawartha region of Ontario, most of my weddings tend to be in the Kawartha’s. However I have shot weddings outside of the Kawartha’s such as on the shores of Lake Ontario and at beautiful locations in the Muskoka’s. In such cases sometimes there is a small mileage fee or in the rare case a requirement for over night accommodations.
What about wedding venues? With having 10 years experience, I’ve shoot weddings at almost every Kawartha wedding venue. From farmer fields and the cottage waterfront to resorts like Viamede, Beachwood, Elmhirst and Eganridge … to golf courses such as Baxter Creek, Black Diamond, Peterborough Golf and Country Club … to unique locations like the Peterborough Lift Lock or one of the hidden gems of Peterborough, Champlain College at Trent University … I’ve shot it all!
Packages start at $2,000 which include 8 hours of coverage, Photoshop editing on images, a large wall art mounted print, extra credit for prints or custom Thank You cards PLUS a high quality, beautiful starter album. From this starting point packages go up in cost but the packages substantially grow with more keepsakes.
Feel free to contact me at any time to check on my availability and to ask for my private pricing document. Please note, if you are looking for me to shoot your wedding my calendar is usually filled one year in advance.
Who doesn't like a photo booth? Have me bring my studio gear and run a photo booth during your reception! I guarantee it will be a blast. I've had parents approach me as I run my photo booth and thank me for creating great memories. Why not have that experience at your wedding to?
Paper, metal, acrylic or canvas ... professional printing service should result in a unique presentation of your images. I can help guide you and your family to get impressive prints that simply aren't possible at a Joe-average 'print for the masses' printing service.
the "Parent Album"
Beautifully elegant parent albums using the same design and printing process as the master Bride & Groom album. These are fantastic high quality keepsakes that mothers love.
What is an engagement shoot? It is a time to spend with me before the wedding to capture some great images to share with family and possibly use on the wedding day. It is a great way for us to get to know each other better so that come the day of the wedding we have built a bit of a re-pore. It also helps to relax my couples for the day of the wedding because at the e-shoot they learn just how easy great photography can be when working with an experienced professional.
Thank You cards
Custom designed Thank You cards. Choose between traditional folded cards or my very popular 5x7 two sided postcard. Custom designed with your image selections and text choice, your guests will be impressed at the quality as it conveys how truly thankful you are.
With out a doubt, one of my most popular and successful wedding keepsakes. My albums are custom designed with your input and are printed on 75+ year archival paper and bound by hand for a very impressive presentation. With different size and colour options, I continually receive thank you e-mails from clients after they receive their albums because of the 'wow' factor.
The buzz word is Fusion. This is the capturing of video while capturing stills and then combining them in a HD video that provides the ultimate keepsake of the day. I can combine video snippets from the day (and all of the speeches) in a video that incorporates your still images. Clients love the results. Blending still images and video is one of the best keepsakes. All of your family will want their own copy!
If a familes home was on fire and the family members are safe but they could run back in to recover one item, what is it people most commonly say? They say they would save their family photos. With out a doubt photography is the most important service hired for a wedding. In time the ceremony, the guest list, the dinner, speeches and dance become distant memories. Invest in professional photography for that unique, once in a lifetime experience.
