Generally, weddings are priced according to the hours of coverage and level of coverage. My base packages start at $3900 for photo, $3200 for video or $5800 for both and go up in price from there depending on coverage.
I typically exchange a few emails in the beginning to find out the basic event details. From there I'll either meet for coffee to learn more about my clients or speak with them over phone or video chat to get more details. If they choose to move forward with me as their photographer I have a contract that we sign and they will put a deposit down to reserve their date. Generally, we will have a consult 2 weeks before their event date to go over all the final details and timeline. About a day or two after the event I like to give my clients a preview photo of their event. Depending on the event type, the final images or videos are delivered as early as 2 weeks through 12 weeks. Of course, any time a client wants to meet, email, call or text, I'm always happy to speak with them!
I initially took film photography in high school and went on to take digital photography classes after graduating. I studied and trained for about a year to receive my professional photography certification. The certification process consists of a rigorous written exam and portfolio panel review. I keep up with classes and workshops to stay current in my skills and services. I also have a degree in marketing and accounting, which certainly helps to have as a business owner.
