Engagement & Wedding Photography Packages

images that become more meaningful with time

Essential Engagement package - $950

Portraits shot with a high resolution professional digital camera.
The same qualities that make digital images the best choice for wedding photography, also make it a great choice for portraiture.
Engagement portraits have a long history. They began in Europe in the 1600's as "wedding portraits." Franz Hals, a dutch master, painted some of the finest. This long tradition allows the couple to also be the distinct individuals they are at the time of the public commitment to one another.
After the individual portraits, the couple is photographed together.
Individual and couples portraits taken in the photographer's studio before the wedding, taken with a high end digital camera. (More on portraits here)
Image processing for every photo.
Full digital black and white printing of three images for each portrait - total of 9 final image files.
All files posted online and
ALL files, full resolution - put onto a flash drive and DVDs for archiving, and for making additional prints at the lab of your choice.
Location photography available for an additional charge - includes up to three hours of travel time

Classic Engagement package - $1850

Portraits shot with traditional 19th & 20th century cameras on large format film.
Having honed my skills as a photographer with film, I am thrilled to offer this time-honored service.
If you're looking for something different and want beautiful images that will stand the test of time, a portrait on large format film is not only unusual in our fast paced modern world, but also has a look like no other. In addition, photographing on film creates a permanent object - not just pixels digitally rendered and then quickly erased, but light from the very moment of exposure etches its way into the film emulsion.
For portraits, the slower and more methodical qualities of film and older cameras become an asset. The entire process is more considered. Cameras are larger, fewer photos are taken than with a digital camera - and everything moves a bit more slowly. It's a beautiful and ageless way to capture a lasting image.
Individual portraits of the bride and the groom in the photographer's studio before the wedding, taken with a traditional large format bellows camera onto 4 x 5 inch black and white sheet film. Six (6) sheets of film per portrait.
Couples portrait of the bride & groom taken with a classic 2 1/4 inch square format camera and black and white film.
Two rolls film (Approx. 24 exposures)
All film, traditional hand processing and digital scans, digital printing of chosen file for each portrait.
Includes one archival pigment ink print on watercolor paper up to 16 x 24 inches.
