I provide a minimum amount of service for any wedding assignment I accept.  Additional services are optionally available with an additional charge.  If you think you just might want to book me for your special day, please contact me soon so we may schedule a no-obligation consultation.  Once I'm booked for a certain day, I'm no longer available for that day or weekend.  I accept up to two full service weddings per calendar month so I'm fresh, energized and focused on your special day.  This helps ensure I may provide you the greatest attention to every detail of your Wedding Day. 

John's passion and enjoyment of photography keeps him busy doing what he loves most.  This is especially easy to see in the studio or in his outdoor photography area behind  his studio.  John's enthusiasm and excitement as he creates portraits you will love is contagious.  Expect to enjoy your portrait sessions and receive portraiture you are going to love for years to come!

M-Disc the best way to archive your Wedding Day images.

John's main camera for all weddings is the Sony A7RIII 42-megapixel camera.

This products/services package works very well for the vast majority of weddings photographed.

Optional Additional Wedding Photo Services:

2nd Photographer ShooterI must highly recommend this option for larger weddings.  This 2nd photographer also functions as an assistant to help with posing people, fluffing the bride's dress, carrying and setting up photo equipment, handling logistics and making the wedding planner's day a lot smoother and so many other things.  If Cherry is available, $300 and she works exclusively with John.

Formal Studio Style Portrait Session on Wedding Day.  This is shot on-location at venue.  Client must make prior arrangements with venue to provide an area and the electrical connection photographer needs to shoot with two professional studio flash and enough area to set-up a professional studio background.  This is usually a great option to consider when you have family and friends from distant locations and you want great portraits of them and even to gift them with great portraits for going to your Wedding Day.  They can view and download their portraits when you share your wedding day photography link.  John with portable studio at venue Add $300.

Professional Wedding Albums


This service is available exclusively through any of the wedding photographer associates you hire at Wedding Photographics.

Wedding Album Design.  We don't force or require our clients to purchase wedding albums.  We prefer that you first see all your wedding day images then decide if you would like to also enjoy your favorite images in a wedding album of your own.  Our wedding albums of choice are Zookbinders.

I have never understood the concept of locking people into an album purchase obligation without seeing photos first. Feels like putting the cart before the horse. I would rather first prove to you that I have created so many great images of your wedding day that you will want to purchase a wedding album. 

Album Design session includes sitting down with John in front of our office computer and together we design the wedding album of your dreams.  Once we have designed all your wedding album pages, I will burn them to an archival M-Disc for safe-keeping.  You may send those files to any album design companies available or use my own album printing & assembly services.  The cost of printing & assembly of a physical album depends on number of pages, size of album, number of images and other factors that a price quote cannot be provided until all these factors are determined.  Wedding albums are a custom product with many colors, styles and other options available.  Wedding album design priced at $10 per page which includes burning them to your archival M-Disc.

Black Padded Deluxe M-Disc Folio. One for Bride & Groom and two more for others included.  Photography M-Discs are provided in these disc folios for the Wedding Day coverage.

Engagement/Bridal Portrait Session

Up to two hours each, two locations within 15 miles of our studio and two clothing changes for the engagement session.  Our photo studio and outdoors in our "backyard studio" are considered one location.  You will receive about 40 full-resolution, enhanced and basic retouched JPEGs via Google Drive within three business days after session.  Purchase of our Wedding Photography services NOT required to use our engagement/bridal portrait session services$150 each sessionIf you would like your engagement or bridal portrait session archived on M-Disc, just add $10.  Comes with personalized storage case cover.
