so like, money is not the most fun thing to chat about with anyone. we get that. so we'll get this big question out of the way first and foremost.
we are flexible. we like to keep the dialect open.
now with that being said though, we have our prices set for a reason. running a business isn't all bells and whistles. we have expenses and taxes. we have our family. we have a mortgage and car payments. we are normal people like everyone else.
we have been in business for 6 full years. but sarah has been in the industry 10 years so we are also charging for experience and quality of the experience that you get with us. so even though we have formulated pricing, we are willing to hear what your needs are, and why you feel so connected to us and our work, and why you would like to work with us.
why yes, yes we do. as you'll see us mention in our investment page, we've got the travel fever. we are constantly looking for places to travel while photographing the most badass couples in these locations.
we are located in harrisburg, pa - but this does NOT limit us to this area. most of our work ends up being outside of the central PA area! because we love traveling so much, we offer special discounted packaging for weddings that are at least 10+ driving hours from our home. so if you were wondering - WE HAPPILY TRAVEL!
And what's so nice about this, is that we'll come up with a quote, and from there we'll take care of all the travel logistics. You won't have to worry about a thing.
Also when traveling for weddings, we're there for it all. having a day after brunch? we'll do it! all in all, traveling wedding packages are like the full deal.
you will have full access to see your entire gallery within 6-8 weeks after your wedding. BUT because we can't contain ourselves with the excitement of your wedding and photos, within 2-3 days you'll receive a slideshow that you can share with friends and family that will contain 30+ images! these are your sneak peak images, and meant to hold you over until the full cake is completed. all of the photos that are in your slideshow will be also emailed to you in a gallery that you can download awhile. so you know, so thank you's - or prints your family member is begging you for etc ..
YES YOU DO! you will receive FULL PRINTING RIGHTS to your entire engagement session, as well as all of your wedding photos. this gallery is pretty sick. it gives you the option to download web-res or high res. you can also send it to friends and family. AND no matter how far away your guests live, they can access the gallery and buy prints and products right from the link! and whatever they buy will be shipped directly to their doorstep. talk about that amazon prime experience! (and fun fact: we give out a special deal on prints and products for friends and family for a month after your gallery is delivered!
we do offer album add on's. so if this interests you, ask us for our full album pricing sheet!
this is a fab question! this is one that gets asked frequently. i'll just say up front - we are NOT a photography business that limits the amount of photos we give you. far from it. actually, we tend to over give. our cameras are shooting through moments rapidly, so there may be 25 photos from a 3 second moment, but if they fit the criteria as a good photo, then you'll get all 25. make sense? WE LIMIT NOTHING!
now, just to give you an average, since we all like averages. if you book a standard wedding package at 9 hours - with a total number of 6 in your wedding party and an average of 150 guests, you'll probably see somewhere around 850+ images. but truly, it is SO hard to pin point numbers. it all varies on how many guests, how many people in the wedding, how many different events are going on, if your ceremony and reception are in the same location, etc. regardless of all that though, your gonna get a ton!
we've got tons to choose from, baby!
so we have a 6 hour, 9 hour and a 12 hour package. BUT BUT BUT - we also offer hourly add on's as well as FULL WEEKEND COVERAGE. (ask us directly about this) if you feel like you want every single moment captured, like rehearsal dinner, wedding day and day after then this choice is for you!
we have a little something for anyone. if you feel like you are unsure on which package best suits you, please ask during our consultation! we have seen it all and can give you our most professional opinion on what we feel will be the best bang for your buck! we can make ourselves available from 1 hour to 2000. we're there for whatever you want!
obviously you want to have an idea of this. as would we if we were in your shoes! if you head on over to our investment page, it'll give you a quick rundown on what each option is and what the base prices are! this way you know if your budget lies somewhere in there!
HECK TO THE YES! the thing about us is that we pride ourselves on making you feel like we aren't even there. we're obsessed with creating time-less emotion. we have a certain super fun method that we use to help bring the real emotion and connection between you and your partner. basically, we play games! we'll explain further in our consultation with you how this goes. you guys will be interacting with each other the whole time. you'll be running around. doing things you've never done together before all for the sake of sick photos and a fun experience. we don't want your time with us to feel like a chore or a dreaded photo sesh, so we do all we can to make it a damn good time! we have never had a couple where our method didn't work for them, but in return they actually end up saying they feel they have grown closer to their partner. and THIS is one of the reasons of why we love what we do so so much.
this is something we'll explain in more detail in our consultation, but here is a quick rundown on how this works. so first thing, we gotta make sure we all connect and that we'll be one big happy family! so we have a consultation. during our consultation we'll first want to hear from you. we want to know more about your wedding, your relationship, your favorite kind of taco etc.. the more details the better. we love to connect with you and make sure we're the best fit for your wedding photography dreams. i mean, you spend your entire wedding day with your photographer, so its important to be able to connect with them. from that day of consultation, your date will be saved with us for two weeks. this gives you two weeks to discuss with parents, partner, and just figure out what you'd like to do. by the end of those two weeks, we require a signed contract and a 50% down deposit. this is your amount to save your date with us. once those two things are officially completed, your then our couple! MU-ahahah.
we frequently get asked this all of the time. and that's totally fine. i would love to make sure you know this answer up front. so yes, even though we take an untraditional approach to weddings, it doesn't mean that we don't photograph the formals that every single family member wants. as we navigate through your wedding day we're following a timeline. so that timeline is technically based off of formals such as families, bridal party etc. so as we are making sure to photograph all of your formals on your list, we're still making sure that we are keeping our untraditional approach at hand by making those formals fun, lighthearted and not too posey.
we accept check, venmo or credit card. (if paying with CC, we charge a convenience fee of 2.9%.
here is the dealio with this one. so think of it this way. an artist is given a blank canvas: they create a masterpiece. an artist is given an already painted over canvas: they create, but some someone has already started. this is how we feel at new venues. we LOVE new places. it tingles all of our senses! we're thoroughly inspired by walking into a new space we've never shot in. it's our blank canvas!! now - DONT WORRY. if we HAVE shot at your venue, that is ok! we will actually strive and challenge ourselves to find new spaces, new light and a variety of places. no matter what, we find inspiration. but we just want to reassure you that if we've never shot at your venue, it shouldn't be a deal breaker.
