Let's break this down a bit.
You have a budget. You know it and I know it.
I'm here to tell you that it's A-Okay to have a budget and talk about pricing. It might not be super romantic to talk dollars and cents but my relationship with my husband became completely whole the minute he and I made the leap to have this really awkward, frustrating, but totally real and honest conversation about money. I know that you like to know how much stuff costs before you save all of your nickels and pennies and before you do that, you definitely want to know what you're getting for your coin. 'Cause I'm the same way - I want to be transparent with you and the guy who does my taxes at the end of the year.
Not every couple, family, person has the same needs and desires, so I've made my pricing as straight forward as I can possibly make it.
No packages, no collections - you pick what works best for you and your budget.

A note about pricing - Balancing a wedding budget is so hard, so it's good practice to really dig in on the things that are most important to you and try to be flexible in other areas. I'm certainly biased, and having photos to remember my life is something that's important to me (makes sense given the profession) but it's also why I got into photography. To remember all the pieces that fall out of my head, so that I can take those moments with me through the years, to the very end. And someday, I'll leave those pieces for my children. Budgets are real and you must draw the line somewhere. Before you draw that final line, think about all the things that will be left at the end of your wedding day. After the bar has closed up shop, the DJ has played the last song, and the final sparkler has gone out - you'll forever have your photos to remember every bit of this amazing day.
For weddings and elopements you can add things on to fit your needs and your budget such as... a second photographer, a beautiful linen or leather album, or actual real film (magical) to be used to capture your moments. When you put it all together, I guess you could call it a "package" or a "collection" but it's all completely custom to your needs and what your budget can handle. For a complete list of options and pricing, get in touch.
One last totally crazy thing - although I do need to pay the tax man and keep the lights on and maintain the magical devices that make the shutter go click - the device that captures your awesome once in a lifetime moments - I get that sometimes our eyes can be bigger than our stomachs. Or our desires bigger than our wallets. Whatever the saying is. If anything that I've said resonates with you and really speaks to your heart - get in touch with me. Maybe there was a moment that you just knew that no other photographer would do - that tells me that you're probably my people.
I believe in taking care of my people. You and your family do not represent dollar signs to me. Be transparent - tell me what your budget is and just maybe we can try to find a way to work together. It's worth a shot.
