Been working on finding a photographer for our daughter's wedding, the one we'd wanted to get which our daughter and her fiance wanted got out of the business and is only into advertising type photography (think I told you all that), so they're back to the blackboard. Because they're both working, I'm having to contact people, because the businesses are only open from 8-5 and our daughter and her fiance don't get home until after 6-7pm and leave around 7 am.
Found one place that does gorgeous work, but it's been a long time since I had our pictures done (1982), so I'm lost on so many things. This one you get:
$2,200. ($450 deposit due at time of booking; remaining balance due 2 weeks before wedding)
Pre-wedding consultation before booking.
8 hours of coverage
1 hour session of your choice: Engagement, bridal boudoir, or trash the dress.
Photo editing/image enhancement.
Password protected online gallery for proofing and ordering prints. All images from your gallery will be available for you to download to your computer at no extra cost. CD's containing images are subject to a $20 service fee. (HUH?????)
Printing release included. (To guarantee print quality, printing through your gallery is recommended, but not required).
Travel within 60 miles of Richland Center, Wi. (they are)
10% off all print and album products.
1 hour "Trash the Dress" or Boudoir session: $125.00.
Additional photographer: $75 per hour

"Wedding Package #1 (most popular)
