Wedding FAQ

Can you explain the photo packages?

There are 2 options when purchasing your photos: Some packages will come with a photo credit that can be used towards the purchase of photos, some packages will include all of the candid ceremony photos delivered via email download. The photography session increases with each package, so the larger the package, more photos are taken.

How to use the Photo Credit:

Our professional photographer will be taking candid ceremony photos during your ceremony as well as posed/formal photos of the couple after the ceremony. You will be viewing a quick slideshow of your photos directly after your ceremony. You will have the opportunity to purchase all of your photos digitally, which will be delivered via email download with a copyright release. There are different packages available and the pricing starts at $299, depending on your package. You will be able to use your photo credit towards the price of the photo package and receive all of your photos the same day. If you do not want to purchase a Photo package, you will then be able to use your credit to purchase individual prints online, at a later time.

Printed photos are priced at $15 for one 5×7, and $30 for one 8×10.

With the purchase of the Photo package, you will be able to download and save the images to your computer, print them at any store or online, and also share them with your friends and family and on social media.

Packages that come with the candid ceremony photos:

With these packages, we will be able to include your immediate family and wedding party in the photo shoot after your ceremony. After the ceremony and photo session, you will be viewing a quick slideshow of all of your photos. The photos that are taken during the ceremony (from the moment you walk down the aisle until the kiss) are included in your package, delivered via email. You will have the opportunity to purchase all of the posed/formal photos which are delivered via email download with a copyright release. These will only be available for purchase at this time. There are different photo packages available, and the pricing starts at $499, depending on your package.

Personal Online Photo and Video Gallery:

Every package comes with a personal photo and video gallery online. Your photos and the video of your ceremony will be on our website for a minimum of 30 days, with unlimited viewing. This is great for those who are unable to make it to your ceremony.
