Wedding Prices & Contracts



Basic wedding pricing sheet

There are many variables that can effect the pricing of wedding photography. To arrive at the actual final price we will meet to talk specifics. This price guideline will give you a good idea of how I work and my basic pricing.

 To begin, I have an hourly charge of $100 with a three hour minimum and charge $30 per roll of film shot. That fee covers the price of the film and produces a set of 4x6 prints for you. These are your proofs to keep and use to order any reprints or enlargements. How many hours and how many rolls can be up to you. In this way you can have some input in order to arrive at the price you would like to pay. Likewise, the number of hours I shoot depends on the amount of coverage of the event you want.


This is basically just the ceremony with all group formals and bride & groom portraits. The cost entails my 3 hour minimum and as many rolls you would like shot. On average, three to five rolls could cover these shots. That would make the cost anywhere from $300 to $400.


This includes the above events as well as things like the rice toss and car ride to the reception, etc. Also a couple of choice events at the reception that you know you want pictures of. i.e. cutting the cake, the bouquet toss, or the best mans speech. This could be three to five hours and four to six rolls of film. This option would cost from $375 to $525.


This means an entire day of shooting starting with the preparation of the bride and the pinning of corsages on the wedding party all the way to candid and/or table shots at the reception and all events in between. This could be six to eight hours of shooting and six to ten rolls of film. So this rings in at anywhere from $600 to as much as $850.

 With this as a guideline you can start to see what you get and how much you can pay for it. Now before we meet, you can think about how much of your wedding you want photographed. What events during the day do you want recorded? And how much do you anticipate spending for this work?

Another thing I should address briefly is what happens to your negatives. It is the express right of the photographer to keep all negatives of his/her work. That having been said, I keep my negatives one year from the date of the event. I keep them in acid-free archival negative sleeves and you can at any time order reprints and enlargements of any picture you have. After one year, if you like, I can turn the negatives over to you to keep. Or you can have me archive them for you in my own filing system. If you absolutely want the negatives at the time I deliver you the proofs, you may. For this there is a fee of $200 that is added to the overall price of the wedding shoot.

For a deposit I require 1/3 of the total cost that we have agreed upon as soon as possible after you book the wedding date. The remainder can be paid any time prior to the day of the wedding. If you are keeping the negatives you can pay for them when I give you the proofs after the wedding. This, of course, will all be worked out as we talk and get to know each other long before the wedding day.

I look forward to hearing from you. I'm sure that we can come up with a price that is agreeable to both of us.


 Reprint and Enlargement Price Guide
Any reprints can be ordered in two sizes- 4x6 and 3x5. The proof prints you get initially are 4x6. I think the best way to order reprints will to be to give me the actual proof photo you have. On the back of each photo well attach a post-it note with the number of reprints of that particular picture.

3x5 reprint cost is $1.25 for the first of each image ordered and $1.00 for each additional.

4x6 reprint cost is $2.00 for the first of each image ordered and $1.25 for each additional.

The second reprint of the SAME image is discounted. So an order for three 4x6 prints of the same image would cost $2.00 for the first one and $1.25 for the next two.

Enlargements can be ordered the same as above, in fact on the same post-it note would be good.

I offer the common sizes from 5x7 to 8x10 or 11x14 and even 12x18.

5x7 prints cost $7.00 for the first of each image and $6.00 each additional of the same image.

8x10 prints cost $15.00 for the first and $10.00 for each additional of the same image.

11x14 prints cost  $30.00 for the first and $20.00 for each additional of the same image.

12x18 prints cost $50.00 for the first and $35 for each additional of the same image.

Black and white prints are in a separate category. I custom print any B&W enlargements myself and can also print any reprints as well as send them to an outlab for a more inexpensive reprint.

4x6 custom B&W costs $3.50 each. (no multiples discounts)

5x7 custom B&W costs $9.00 each

8x10 custom B&W costs $20.00 each

11x14 custom B&W costs $40.00 each.

Outlab B&W 3x5 costs $1.50

Outlab B&W 4x6 costs $2.00
