I have 5 carefully designed wedding packages beginning at $1500. The options between the packages varies, but each come with the following:
4-10 hours of wedding coverage
Pre-wedding consultation/planning sessions
Individual photo correction/enhancements of all final images
Full resolution images delivered digitally (or mailed on a disc if you prefer.)
In order to reserve your wedding date, I do require a deposit/retainer. It's pretty simple... 50% to reserve the date and then the other 50% is due one week before the wedding date.
I love traveling. I have even traveled across seas for several weddings in the past. If your wedding is outside of a 30 mile radius of Tyler/Austin, then I charge $0.54 per mile traveled (there and back). If your wedding requires me and my assistant to spend the night somewhere, then there is a fee of $100/night plus hotel and food costs. For weddings further than a 5 hour drive from Austin, flight tickets will be required.
If your wedding will be outside of the country, be sure to mention that in your contact email. I sometimes offer substantial discounts in exchange for all expenses being paid.
