I believe that a wedding should result in an heirloom, a legacy, a memory forever remembered. Pictures posted online can disappear with one click. Years of memories can be wiped from a hard drive with one power surge. Yet people will run back into a burning house to retrieve their wedding albums. THAT is what I shoot for on a wedding day – moments upon moments that tell a love story to be forever remembered in a beautifully laid out book. This final finishing touch of your wedding experience is something you can be proud to own, display, and pass on to your children. I’ve been offering albums in all of my wedding collections for almost my whole career as a wedding photographer, and as my couples celebrate their anniversaries I often get notes and messages about how much they enjoyed looking through their album and remembering their wedding day once again.
So, with that being said, I really hope that you will also choose an album or two in your own custom wedding collection. I know you most likely came to this page looking for pricing information, and now that you understand a bit better what it is I strive to create at your celebration, here it is. Ready?
NEW simple pricing for 2015: Wedding day coverage starts at $1800 for up to 7 hours with 2 photographers. That means you’re getting me, Kristina, as your main photographer, plus one more (indispensable!) photographer/assistant who will help with posing, lighting, groups, details, etc, for the majority of the day. This also includes all the pre-wedding planning/communication and post-wedding editing and posting of images; the final product is an online image gallery for the guests, and a laser-inscribed DVD for you of 500-800 edited images at full resolution for printing as well as web resolution for posting on social media.
You are welcome to build upon this base, depending on your needs and budget. The majority of my clients add an engagement session and 2-3 albums in various sizes. If you’re like most couples and want a fuller experience, expect to invest $2500-$4700 in your wedding photography. I’d be more than happy to create a custom quote for you. Use the contact form at the top of the page or email me directly kristina[at]photokisses[dot]com with inquiries.
I work with a couple of amazing album companies to provide unique books that reflect the couple’s styles and personalities. There are so many options, from various sizes to different covers, design styles, page quality… So basically throw something out there and I will see what I can do to make it happen – while maintaining a classy look that will stand the test of time.
Every custom designed album starts at 30 pages (60-80 images)
Cover: Hard, thick picture cover.
Page thickness: stiff, .5 mm thick.
Sizes: 8×8 – 12×12. 4×4 copy available as a parent/brag book. Prices start at $500.
A gorgeous art book, this album is beautifully assembled with thick pages that, due to the printing process, help the photos stand out in quality and color. Custom designed in spreads, with no fear of anything getting cut off in the lay-flat spine.
Premium: 6×6 hard cover book. A guestbook is a great way to showcase your engagement photos, and a modern way for guests to wish you all the best. All 2015 engagement sessions receive one 6×6 book with 25-30 favorite images. Ask to see them in person at our meeting.
Here are a few examples of wedding albums I’ve designed for my wedding clients:This is a 10×10 15 spread album with 100 image design.
