I will be at your event for a full 8 hours. Travel costs up to 200kms total is included. You will then receive a USB with all professionally edited high-res photos completely free of watermarks. You may print and share as you wish. It also includes a complimentary Port Hope engagement session. Investment is $2600.00
I do not guarantee a minimum number of images. I promise that each photo you receive will be professionally chosen and edited. On average an eight hour package produces 400-600 edited photos. Each photo will be in colour and black and white.
I request a 30% non-refundable (there are no exemptions) retainer to reserve your desired date. The reminder is due on or before the wedding day.
You will have your photos within 6 weeks of the wedding date. I will also send you a sneak peak along the way.
A selection (40-60) of photos will be available on your private online photo gallery for one year.
The types of edits I provide are as follows; minor blemishes, eye white brightening, teeth brightening, cropping for composition, lighting, saturation and minor retouching. I do not offer hair, makeup or body alterations.
Yes, I have shot weddings that have been in buildings with little light and outdoors in the full sunshine. Not to mention the rainy day wedding!
I am based in Port Hope, ON.
I only book one wedding in a day, nothing else. That way if you decide last minute that you want me earlier or later it is not a problem.
Two pro Sony A7III Bodies – Sony Zeiss Lenses – 85mm 1.8 , 35mm 1.4 , 16-35mm, a flash kit and various Hassleblad lenses with my Mirrorless Kit. As a Sony professional services member I also have access to a range of lenses and equipment.
Yes, I retain the copyright but you have permission to print and share at your will.
Yes, generally I reserve the right to use the photos for my portfolio and advertising.
I am available to meet in person before you book me. We can meet over coffee or Skype/Facetime consultations are also available.
Yes, you are hiring me to shoot your wedding not another photographer working under Macpherson Images.
I have worked hard to develop my own style as a artist over the last 15 years so I prefer not to copy another photographers style or editing technique. I have had some brides send me ideas from Pinterest but they are more of a guideline to work with. It is difficult to "copy" Pinterest as I need to work within a framework that is guided by budget, venue, weather and time allotment.
I use back up cards on each camera, as well as bring multiple camera bodies and lenses should one fail.
Generally about an hour and a half, two if needed. I like to shoot when the light is nice, either earlier or later in the day. My package includes a complimentary local engagement session in Port Hope or close by. If you would like me to travel a fee will apply.
I do not work with a second shooter for a few reasons. I try to provide my couples with the most value possible. I have yet to find that a second shooter is necessary. I have many couples who are shocked that I am able to grab all the angles without them being aware of my movement. One went so far to refer to me as a ninja! (yes I told my daughter about that one) Lastly, I prefer work on my own as I don't want to have any restrictions on the day.
