Hello Brooklyn & Dan!
Welcome to your private page on our website. All of our clients have a private page on our site, just like this that holds links to all of their photographs and links to special labs for prints and products.
This is a sample of the page that we will create just for you.
Your quote for wedding day photography is below, as well as a private link , to our sample wedding portfolio that highlights what your online gallery would look like as well as galleries of our work not listed anywhere else. You will see the Brides preparation shots, formal shots, ceremony, reception etc...all in a gallery just like the one you will receive from us.
So on to your quote for coverage for such an important day in your lives. First of all, I am so happy for both as you are planning such an important step in your lives and would like to thank you for your kind words about my photography and valuing the work that goes into covering such an important event.
This is something I do with a passion and I do not take my clients trust in me for granted. With over 20 years in this business, starting first as a newspaper photojournalist, its not just something I've picked up as a hobby. Photography been my life, and I love it. You have my promise that I will work with you to create images that you will love for a lifetime, just like those pictured here of Alex and Rebecca. (your images will take the place of these on this page)

Please keep our pricing arrangements private as I can only provide a limited number of discounted events per year. I try to do this primarily for our friends in the truth. This is a better way of helping witness couples get the same great service and products that we offer.
With your wedding being so close, we have altered our standard payment process to help you with this important investment.
$500, non refundable deposit will reserve your date with us
The balance will then be split into 1/3's with the first payment due 30 days prior to the wedding or by September 10th or 11th. We can then make payment arrangements on the balance.

Balance of $2000 due following the wedding.
We are happy to help you be able to afford professional photography and getting the coverage and style of photography that you love. You may create a payment plan for the balance that works within your budget. It can be per month, but will need to be in writing and signed in our contract for services with you prior to the wedding date.
If you are in a position to pay in full at the time of reserving your date, you can take an additional 5% off the already discounted price, or a total of $3325.
If this will work for you, please get back to me and I can send you the reservation information & contract which can be signed online via Echo Sign.

YOUR COLLECTION- While some photographers choose to give you their choice of favorites, and limit the quantity, I do the complete opposite. My custom style of photography is a bit of guided posing, along with capturing candids...special moments, real moments. I look at spending the day with you as capturing a moment in your life...a time that will never be repeated. Doing so allows me to share with you all of the very best, at times this is well over 100 images. All of your images are edited so that you can download and print them as is.
DOWNLOADING- As a shoot and share photographer I want you to have access to your images forever. I want you to be able to make prints, canvases, products like books, albums, cards and display your images in your homes. This is available for you to do by downloading any image. Your gallery will be online for 10 years but we still encourage our clients to download and make a couple copies of the images on disc or usb flash drives as a backup.
RETOUCHING- The images in your gallery are ready for downloading, saving, sharing and printing. However, there may be one or two that you would really love to showcase, perhaps blow up on a large canvas and hang over your couch. I am happy to do this for you at no additional charge on up to 50 images. All you need to do is share the photo with me, via Facebook, you can share just the image number and tell me what you'd like done. It will be back in your gallery in just a few short days...or within hours if its an absolute rush for you...and I can get it done that fast.
PRINTING- You can make your own personal prints with the images you download, but PLEASE read the print release before you do so as there are inclusions you will need to be aware of. Your images will look their very best printed from a professional lab, but if you are a do it yourself person, like me, you'll want to explore all of your options. Take it from me, resist the temptation to have your images printed from Walmart, Snapfish, Walgreen's etc...these places do not match color profiles and your images will have ugly color distortions. If you want to make your own prints please use a pro-consumer site like Mpix. The cost is only slightly higher...pennies really. Mpix matches the color profile I use when editing your images. Click here to view our suggested Professional Printing Labs.
You can also print right from the your online gallery, but please keep in mind that if you want special touches or complexion retouching, this must be done PRIOR to ordering prints from this gallery. Your order will come directly from a professional printing lab at wholesale cost. Its just a fraction of the cost of department stores and very well worth the investment. I have accounts with many pro labs, and have access to thousands of products, if you need anything, please let me know and I will most likely be able to get you the highest quality, at a fraction of the cost.
I am always available to help you make the most of your images, if you need a special print or product designed please contact me.
Thank you for the incredible experience I had with you and your family during our time together. I hope to have provided you with a photo collection that you will look back through the years and remember how beautiful that special time was in your lives. The very best from your session will be on the blog soon. I will let you know when it is launched.
