Wedding Photography Packages - 2017-2018 (ask about early booking discounts)

I shoot entirely with professional high-resolution digital equipment (currently high end professional Nikon body and lenses). Professional lighting equipment and a lighting assistant are provided for many packages. You will receive a disc of your images, which you will retain full ownership and reprint rights to. All images are optimized for quality and print ready. The packages below apply to weddings in the Kingston area. For destinations outside Kingston, see “Optional Extras” at the end of this document. A 40% deposit is required when booking. Cancellations prior to 45 days before the wedding will receive a refund of 50% of this deposit.

Any of the wedding packages can be modified by adding items from the list of “Optional Extras” at the end of the list. We can also design a custom package to suit your needs. 

Pricing: When looking at these packages please consider the fact that shooting the wedding is only about 25% of the total job for the photographer. Many more hours are spent editing, optimizing and making the visual recording of your event as perfect as you would hope it to be. (example: when you book me for a 7hr shoot, you are really getting over 28 hours of my time). Prices do not include HST.

*DISCOUNTS: A 10% discount will be applied to any bookings (with deposit) 7 months (or greater) in advance of the event.
