Hello Brooklyn & Dan,
This is a sample of the page that we create for our clients. It holds all information and links about their wedding photography services with us. For now, it has your wedding day investment 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 you both as you are in the planning stage of a very important day in your lives. I would also 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, its 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)
This quote is based on the information that you provided for me via Facebook, message, or email. If things change, please let me know so I can make adjustments if needed.
Date: May 21, 2016 Congratulations!!

AMENDED COVERAGE VIA FACEBOOK (original messages) "Good morning. Thank you so much, we are feeling a lot better thank goodness! I have an alternate plan or idea that could cover the cost of your wedding photography and help me out at the same time. If someone on your end wants to or can trade my services for a lens I would be happy to do that. I need a Canon 24-70 USM II lens. I rent this with all of my sessions and that adds up after a years worth of work.. New it costs around 2000 with shipping. I would be happy to provide you an engagement session, full day wedding coverage, the digital files to all images and an online gallery for 10 years in exchange for a lens. This does not come with any products, however, if you wanted an album and wall collage I will give you those products at my wholesale prices. It does, however, include the additional photographer, and two assistants at no additional charge, and I will cover my normal expenses for the session and wedding coverage.. Discuss it with Dan and let me know if that will work for you.
Ok sweet, do you want the 4 year spillprotection added?
Yes, thats a great deal for a replacement if i drop it! Ive never dropped one yet but it cant hurt. I will gift you an album in addition to covetage in exchange for the spill protection.

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.
