Couples come into this wondering if we'll meet their budget – as if this was always done in a fixed way at a fixed cost. That was sometimes true as freelancers. But doing this as a team flips the art on its head and allows it to be about fitting your needs.
Pricing is all about making sure the package fits your priorities. We have some options as low as $700 and others ranging past $7000. Schedule a time for a consultation and we're happy to help you explore options. Whatever artist or package you go with, here's how all our pricing works:
You're going to be looking back on this for a lifetime. We hope you have a few minutes to find the right match for your memories. If you're truly short on time, our Standard is a great fit for the vast majority of weddings. Just pick the size of day, basically: small, medium, or large.
If you're too tight on time to research approach, but also tight on budget – that's where you might get into trouble. Find the cheapest option with a good portfolio? Throwing a Hail Mary does work sometimes! We would just never feel good about quality "sometimes" when it should be something you're looking back on for a lifetime.
Most people think pricing all depends on coverage. But that's totally missing the biggest part of what makes a package what it is. You have to understand an artist's approach so you know what those hours of coverage are worth and what your package will give you.
Approach is how an artist adapts to your unique day to make sure they get the quality you want for your own galleries. We have 2 robust baselines:
Coverage is how many moments you really want to be looking back on, part of the day, the whole of the day, or even multiple days. Here's our most common:
Package is where priorities get real, it's all the numbers linked with approach and coverage: how many shooters, cameras, lights, hours, images, etc.
The above examples work on the same pricing model. You start with a base rate, get 25% off for the second service, and then a special rate for any additional sessions. Our pricing model is straightforward, fair, and easily scales to fit your needs.
There are lots of ways all these numbers can fit together. Which is why we recommend a consultation so we can help you explore best options. We want to make sure we're making the best use of your budget, because yes – if you want quality – there's no getting around the fact that this can be an expensive art.
For even a simple $1200 backyard wedding we’re showing up Standard with almost $50k in equipment. But what part of that Standard list isn’t needed?
Skip the dual cameras? But when the real moment happens and you're on a wide angle, you just miss it? You'd just never get that moment. Or how about skimp on lenses? It’d be saving you maybe $100 of the package total now, but at the cost of a lifetime looking at poor quality for anything shot indoors or at night.
If the goal is just to document, everyone has a camera in their pocket. Ask your friend with the newest iPhones Pro Max to snap some pics for isntworthagram! Oh did we spell that wrong? Sorry too spicy, only kidding.
But really, why spend $1k on pictures? Or for that matter, why buy $50k of picture taking equipment? Because of all times in life worth capturing with a quality that you'd want to look back on for the rest of your life, this is it. We can make a tight budget go a long way, or as a team we can make a big budget do things you won't find anywhere else.
