The first 60 miles each way is included. Otherwise the costs for travel and accommodation is excluded from my packages. Mileage will be added for travel beyond 60 miles. The cost of lodging will be added for weddings requiring an overnight stay.
For weddings I provide a print release that allows you to print photos as you please. However, I do recommend you order your beautiful albums or fine art prints from me to ensure quality. Many of the discount labs do not provide great quality. I use only a professional photography lab. This way you will be sure that you get the best quality and the best color.
My goal is to have your photos back within two weeks. That's not a guarantee as it may be a busy wedding season or I may have something else pressing that comes up and keeps me from making that goal. But typically I am able to return photos and video within two weeks. I challenge you to find another company that will get them to you sooner!
I use only the best professional equipment including the best prime and zoom lenses and full frame Canon cameras. I also use professional Profoto lighting gear. You can be sure that I always bring backup equipment to each wedding.
Yes, I offer an hourly rate of $200 per hour for your wedding. The $200 does not just cover the time spent at the wedding. It also covers the editing time. Likewise, if you want to add hours to a package it is $200 per hour.
Yes, I have been doing video longer than I have been doing photography, and have a talented partner who helps with videography.
I have three photography collections that are based on how much coverage you want. I have a complete package profile that I will gladly send you upon request. Every collection includes high resolution files carefully edited and stored in a downloadable online gallery for one year. The prices also covers consultation, planning and my guidance throughout the wedding process.
I would describe my style of photography as natural and classic, fun and authentic storytelling. I want to capture the essence of your day and turn it into timeless pieces for you to appreciate for a lifetime. I don't use the trendy "light and airy" style nor do I make my photos dark and moody, unless it's appropriate for a particular photo. I like them to look well-exposed and natural.
Most of the weddings I shoot are in Lincoln or Omaha. I do, however, travel throughout Nebraska and beyond.
I will send you a contract that spells out details. You can sign it online. I require a 25 percent non-refundable retainer fee. The remainder is split into two payments, with one due two months before the wedding and the second due one month before.
