Pricing - Michigan Wedding Photographers | Royal Oak Wedding Photographers | Detroit

If you found your way here, then

I must have piqued your interest!


I offer a lot of different options and

I do things differently than other photographers.

I want to make sure I am the perfect fit for your wedding!

You can compare collections, choose add-ons and read what 

prior couples have to say about me.


What's my approach?

I’m there to document genuine moments as they naturally happen. For the majority of the day, I stay very hands off, focusing 100% on the story.

During portraits, it’s a little different. I give plenty of direction, working to bring creative ideas and new photography techniques to make images that are unique.

Though I do direct during portraits my intentions are to capture candid moments to give you honest, natural photos. My goal at every wedding is to develop new photographic ideas no one has ever before seen. If that’s something that excites you, we’ll be a perfect fit.

What are the deliverables?

You get all the edited files in high resolution JPEG format in a zip-file you can directly download to your laptop/PC.  

Do I need a shot list?

Not really! Over the years I developed a system for family pictures which covers the whole family. Prior to the wedding you will receive a questionnaire with everything I need to know about your wedding plans. Included is the only shot list I ask for - the additional groupings for family photos.

What's the deposit?

$500 deposit to lock in your date. I have a policy of booking with whoever first submits their contract and pays the retainer fee for the inquired date.

How do we book?

After we have talked about which collection works best for you I will send along a proposal with the contract and payment information.

What are your albums like?

My signature art books are totally different what you have seen before. You can choose between two options when you make your decision. You can read more about HERE.

Album


A single photo may be beautiful, but a series of images that are carefully crafted into a narrative can have an exponential impact in allowing couples to relive their wedding journey.

The result is a gorgeous, hand-bound coffee table book that enables you to revisit your favorite moments again and again. It comes standard with 20 pages / 10 double page spreads and your choice of leather color.


* 12 x 12 - 10 double page spreads / 900

* 10 x 10 - 10 double page spreads / 700

* 8 x 8 - 10 double page spreads / 500

* every album is created by me with custom designed layouts. you can be involved or not as you would like

* various sizes and leather options available


Unlimited / Additional Coverage


Though 8 hours of coverage is usually the perfect amount for most weddings..sometimes you need more. If you are planning an eventful day or just do not want to think about or plan around your photographers schedule then this add-on has me there as long as you want. You can also just add additional time by the hour if you think that eight hours will not be enough.


* add $500

* i am available as early as you would like all the the way to midnight.

* perfect for very lengthy wedding days when you do not want to think about the timeline at all.

* or just add additional time - $200/hour


2nd photographer


I photograph most weddings by myself, however sometimes it just makes logistical sense to have a second photographer. I can't be in two places at the same time and if you want photos of getting ready in two different locations, or you want lots of detail photos during cocktail hour while we're out taking photos - a second photographer is the best way.


* add $600

* i only use professionals that i trust and who's style is similar to mine

* all images are given to me to edit and deliver right along with my own


Engagement Session


Straightforward session when you did not set a date yet or getting married out of state. The best way to learn how I photograph and get comfortable in front of the camera. 

Engagement sessions are very helpful to prepare for the wedding day. You get a chance to learn how I approach a session, get comfortable in front of the camera and be prepared for the big day.

* $425

* 1.5h - 2h session

* unlimited locations

* unlimited outfits


Unplug Discount


I started offering discounts for unplugged ceremonies since I noticed a huge spike in tablets and phones during the ceremony. We can talk more about it in person, but I think it is a win-win with your guests being more focused on the start of your marriage and me being able to photograph moments of people laughing and hugging instead of pointing at screens.


* you make your best effort to ask your guests to put down their devices until after the ceremony (reception is totally fine for selfies)

* i give you a $100 discount on any package you book with me


Let's make it happen


If you are excited what you just read about my approach and my way of documenting your wedding day then let's go ahead and schedule a phone call or a personal meeting where we can talk more about your ideas and dreams for your wedding photography!


I am looking forward to meeting you!
