Wedding Photography Investment Information
DSmithImages Wedding Photography, Portraits, and Events is based in the Birmingham, Alabama metro area, but I am available to travel and photograph weddings throughout the United States. If you are in need of a wedding photographer and are located in the Birmingham metro area or in places like Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery, Auburn, Gulf Shores, Atlanta, New Orleans, Nashville, the beaches of Destin and 30A, along with many other great spots, the information below is definitely for you!
Selecting the right wedding photographer is a critical and crucial decision when choosing your vendors. It's a decision you'll make months before the big day, but it will also have an impact years afterwards. A wedding is the biggest party you'll ever throw. As a result, it is important you have the right people and right vendors in place to provide to you the best services possible so that your special day goes off without a hitch. You'll eat the food provided by the caterer, you'll eventually have to throw out the flowers from the florist, and you'll probably never wear the wedding dress again. Your photos, though, will remain with you. That is why I would love for you to consider DSmithImages Wedding Photography, Portraits, and Events as your official wedding photographer.
Wedding Photography Packages Start at $1999.99
I photograph weddings with one central philiosophy in mind. YOU are the boss that day. I will not try to tell you how your wedding is going to look because it is not my wedding. It is your wedding. I strive to get as much input and creative direction from my brides and grooms as possible because I want your pictures to be exactly what you dreamed of when planning your wedding day. With that in mind, do note that all wedding photography packages include include, at least, the following:
- Full coverage of the wedding day
- An engagement or bridal session
- A storybook wedding album
- All images in high resolution (Print quality) and web resolution + color and black and white on a custom printed USB drive (Display box included)
- Print rights
- Private proofing gallery
- Print/product credit
Full coverage means you give me a start time, and I am there until the end of the reception or a time otherwise specified. This allows me to tell the full story of your wedding day without the restrictions a time limit would require. You'd also get full access to the high resolution/print quality images in both color and black and white, and they'd be included on custom printed USB Drives. Your photos would also be placed in a password protected proof gallery so only you and your friends and family can have access to them.
As mentioned, I am available for weddings anywhere in the United States, although a travel fee might be applied based on the distance from the Birmingham, Alabama area. All weddings in the state of Alabama, though, will have their travel fee waived. Please do not let travel distances hinder you from hiring me to cover your wedding. I'll be happy to work with you on those details. I have photographed weddings throughout Alabama along with ceremonies in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, and even Connecticut. No place is too far for me to travel to make sure you have the wedding photographs you deserve!
If you were to choose me as your wedding photographer, a non-refundable retainer totaling 1/3 of the package price would be due at the time of booking. The second 1/3 payment would be due 60 days before the wedding, and the final 1/3 payment would be due the day of the wedding. A signed agreement would also be required to make things official. If you wish to see the agreement before hand, I will be happy to send you a copy. Please include that request in the inquiry form below.
