Congratulations! Let's go right ahead and assume that you are only looking at this page because you are recently engaged and in the process of planning your wedding! That is great, you came to the right place! First off, weddings are great, you get to share the happiness excitement of the day and to help capture the moments that will remain with the couple for the rest of their lives!
Picking a wedding photographer can be hard, and since weddings are expensive a lot of it comes down to price. A lot of people get overwhelmed with the amount of options a photographer gives the client; many different prices, different prints, just way too many choices. The purpose here is to eliminate that. My packages are simple and straightforward.
First lets talk a little bit about what goes into photographing a wedding. First we start with the Engagement Photo Session, it will give us a chance to meet and get to know each other. In doing so, the client is usually more comfortable with the photographer on wedding day, and it really gives me a chance to see what type of photos you like and don't like from the Engagement Proofing. This usually takes 1-2 hours.
For the wedding itself I will scout the location, days, weeks, maybe months in advance and check out the lighting situation of where the sun will be at the time of your wedding and photo locations. The day starts off with photographing the location of the wedding, the Bride getting ready, the Groom getting ready, arrival to the location of the wedding, wedding events, family pictures. the wedding itself, and the reception. Usually about halfway through the reception unless booked for a long time is when the photos stop and I call it a night, after the formal festivities, first dances, etc.
When it is all said and done there will be on average of anywhere from 175-350 photos. Each of these photos are professionally edited in Adobe Lightroom, and Photoshop for lighting adjustments, retouching, and style. All of the packages come with a FREE Engagement Session.
All of the Wedding packages come with a USB drive or CD of the 175-350 photos (depending on how long or how many photographers are booked) in full quality with copyright release.
You also will receive a social media disk, with re-sized images for Facebook, Twitter, etc, since the full quality images are going to be very large. For each wedding an online album will be created for you at http://www.jonfrederickphotography.com with a password so that you can share your photos with friends, and view them for up to a year. Give the password to your friends for them to order prints, order backups, whatever you would like.
So since you read all of what goes into a wedding, here's what you all have been waiting for!
Package 1. $2500 - Up to 8 hours. (Weddings with 100 people or less). 1 Photographer. Free Engagement Session with free social media disk, prints sold ala carte. (Total images for engagement session may vary, the more the merrier!) CD or USB of the edited photos in Full Resolution, CD or USB of the edited photos in Social Media format. Photos posted on website for private viewing via password.
Package 2. $3500 - (For groups over 100 people). 2 Photographers to capture every moment and angle. (To capture the day to the highest standard, weddings of over 80 people require two photographers). -up to 8 hours - Everything listed in package 2.
*** 8 hours not enough? Additional hours can be purchased. Need a whole weekend of photography? It can be done! ***
So there you have it, the base prices. Now keep in mind that this day is all about YOU! Jonathan Frederick Photography is all about flexibility and willing to do whatever it takes to make your day special! I am operating out of the New England Area and traveling an hour or two for your wedding is to be expected! There may be additional fees if travel is a long way. I am also willing to travel to destinations, if the destination fits the schedule and is a place of interest it may be no charge additionally. Destination services can be provided with an at cost basis; for example if you are getting married in Yosemite National Park, the cost would be flight fees, plus 2 nights stay (Arrive a day before the wedding, then leave the day after the wedding).
If there is something you don't see in the packages feel free to ask, it's your big day, and the goal is to make you happy! I know a lot of people love a wedding photo album. That is a great touch for any wedding! That can also be added a la carte. (or something you can probably do on your own for cheaper with the disk/usb drive prints that are provided).
Anyways, hope to hear from you soon!
