-One of the biggest and smartest trends in weddings has been a shift to hiring the most experienced photographer you can find for the shortest amount of time on your wedding day, maximizing the quality of your images with minimal intrusion by the photographer. I am thrilled to introduce my SHORT STORIES wedding photography coverage.
Up to Four Hours of Photography
Your wedding represents day ONE of your new family. It would be a great honor for me, and a cherished responsibility, to be with you to photograph the key elements of your wedding:
- The finishing touches of getting ready, including some timeless bridal portraits
- The ceremony where you are surrounded by your nearest and dearest as you exchange vows
- The treasured family portraits and newlywed portraits right after the ceremony
- and the cocktail party where you will be on cloud nine as you meet and greet your guests.
Short and Sweet
My four hour wedding photography is ideal for the couple who want a refined and streamlined experience with their photographer. They want an exceptionally skilled and thoughtful photographer to capture the essence of their elegant single location wedding.
They do not want an engagement session before the wedding or an excessive amount of images from the entire wedding day. They do not want lots of photographs but they want a high quality mix of portraits and reportage documentation.
As their photographer leaves toward the end of the cocktail party they will feel beyond satisfied with the experience and will then relax into their reception knowing that all they key images have been beautifully recorded.
My approach to your wedding is to make as many lovely story-telling images as I can in the time that we have together: your love for each other, the joyous moments, the interactions with family and friends, the energy and the atmosphere are all important to capture in a unique and real way.
If this sounds like what you are looking for, then I am the photographer for you.
Timing for Each Section
Plan for one hour for each part of the day that you would like captured. If you only want one, two or three parts covered then great, you will have a one, two or three hour coverage. The maximum four hour coverage includes the following four parts of the day:
- Getting Ready and Portraits (one hour)
- Ceremony (one hour)
- Family Portraits and Newlywed Portraits (one hour)
- Cocktail Party (one hour)
As well as recording those priceless moments, I will create a variety of elegantly arranged, timeless group photographs of you with your families, bridal party and other honored guests. All through this I will also artistically record the ambiance and details of your dress, suit, décor and overall environment.
My strong reputation in the industry is based not only on my quality photography but my ability to make each of my clients feel completely comfortable in front of the camera.
It is very much your day. I work closely with the two of you and your planner to make sure that I can achieve the high standard of professional photography I am known for, in as relaxed an atmosphere as possible.
$800 plus HST for each hour of photography includes the ready-to-print high resolution polished digital photographs. I will gladly create beautiful archival wall prints (starting at $200) a clean elegant wedding album (starting at $1800) and even thank you cards (starting at $4 per card) and gift prints (starting at $40) for you afterwards based on your wishes. The process will be simple and enjoyable for you from start to finish.
