ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR BOTH OPTIONS:


Attendance at the rehearsal at the wedding location the night before. (This is optional and I do not charge for this, but I like to be there if possible. It helps me to know who is who and where I need to be during the actual ceremony. I also like to meet the officiant to be sure of church rules. I do not generally attend the dinner, however, arrangements can be made in advance if you would like the rehearsal dinner covered with an additional charge)

 * Coverage of the wedding day and reception, total time is dependent on package chosen .    I generally recommend  looking at your day and plan on me being there an hour after the last 'event' of the reception and work backwards to decide on my start time.  

* NO LIMIT on the amount of images provided on your flashdrive. I generally provide 400-700 images for a wedding. I focus on quality of images instead of quantity. The amount of images is greatly influenced by the timeline of the day and if we keep to the schedule.   Images provided are edited high resolution .jpeg files.  I do not provide unedited RAW files. Images included are at the Photographer's discretion.

WEDDING ALBUMS

Proud to now offer Pacific Albums!!! All previous brides are invited to use their album credits!


 We love sharing images electronically these days, and I love sharing in that format too, but it doesn't replace a tangible, beautiful album you can touch.
 These gorgeous bound hard cover albums feature photographic prints mounted on thick pages, flush mount binding and lay flat pages They feature a small gutter between the pages to allow your images to spread across the pages flawlessly.
Each spread is a full panoramic design which allows allows for unlimited design capabilities. The most popular album size is a 10x10 square format. My minimalistic gallery style design uses more blank space, emphasizing each picture more.
The UV coated pages will protect your images for a lifetime. Black leatherette cover personalized with your names and wedding date imprinted on front cover for a gorgeous keepsake. Delivered in a black felt bag inside of a protective box. You pick the the images and I will custom design your pages and upload the spreads for your approval.
How does this work? Brides & Grooms can select their album selections on my website. I will design the album, upload the page spreads to my website for viewing. Once the album is approved the order will be sent in.
Ask to see one in person - they are amazing!
