My fee to photograph your wedding starts at $1,300USD.
My rates and options aren't listed for public viewing on my blog for a variety of reasons. Some destination weddings require travel, which would not be included in a local wedding rate.
I also create custom coverage for many clients, which is something that I can absolutely do for you! If you'd like to obtain collection details for your wedding, simply DROP ME AN EMAIL and we can meet by facetime or skype, after some free consultation I will send you all of the information that you need! I promise to respond ASAP, and I look forward to chatting further!

Frequently asked questions
Do you charge extra for TRAVEL?
I will travel anywhere and will not charge extra for any wedding under a 60 miles from where I´m located (Guadalajara, Mexico).
I'VE BEEN ALL OVER THE WORLD TO PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS, TO THE CARIBBEAN, TO central and SOUTH AMERICA, Iceland, FRANCE, holland, Guatemala, Colombia AND MANY, MANY OTHER PLACES.
I AM A DESTINATION WEDDING SPECIALIST, I love TRAVELING FOR EVENTS.
My TRAVEL IS BILLED VERY SIMPLY - IF AIRFARE AND HOTEL AND RENTAL CAR ARE NEEDED, ALL YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IS A DIRECT REIMBURSEMENT FOR THE CHARGES, that´s all!
DO YOU ALSO PROVIDE Videography SERVICES?
Yes WE DO. WE HAVE A VERY TALENTED VIDEO STAFF, AND I WOULD BE GLAD TO SEND YOU all the INFORMATION, we have some crazy video options!
DO YOU shoot WITH A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes, some WEDDING DAY COVERAGE have A second shooter option, or aN ASSISTANT WHO DOES LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY, you decide.
DO YOU EDIT ALL OF OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
YES, we DO! EVERY IMAGE THAT YOU RECEIVE HAS BEEN HAND-EDITED ONE by one.
We also select some favorites for special editing.
ARE OUR DIGITAL FILES WATERMARKED?
THEY ARE NOT. THE HIGH RESOLUTION FILES DO NOT BEAR ANY WATERMARKS.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BEFORE WE RECEIVE OUR PRODUCTS AND PHOTOGRAPHS?
Usually the first slideshow will be online between 2 and 3 weeks after the wedding, ONLINE GALLERIES ARE POSTED WITHIN SIX to eight WEEKS OF THE WEDDING DATE, AND THIS IS WHEN YOUR DIGITAL FILES ARE RELEASED AS WELL. IF YOU HAVE PRINTED PROOFS IN YOUR COLLECTION, THEY ARE AVAILABLE THREE WEEKS AFTER YOUR GALLERY GOES LIVE. UPON FINAL APPROVAL OF ALBUM DESIGNS, MOST ALBUMS ARE READY FOR DELIVERY WITHIN TWELVE WEEKS.
How many pictures will we receive after the wedding?
The final number of photographs taken depends on many things - the number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events, hours of dancing, type of alcoholic drinks served, and so forth. My average for an eight hour day with a second photographer is 500 pictures, but those numbers may vary depending on the day itself.
We love pictures! and we want everything documented! Can we have more images?
Please understand that the Number of pictures all vary based on many different things. Length of the coverage, amount of guests, etc.
If you're concerned about the coverage, you can always add on a second, or even a third photographer to document alongside myself, and add more hours to your coverage, that will certainly add more pictures to your final delivery!
Do you offer BOUDOIR, TRASH THE DRESS or engagement sessions?
Yes, I do! I call them EXPERIENCES!! I adore those experiences! Please take note that those experiences have to be done Tuesday-Thursday because of a heavy wedding schedule, but there's occasionally Friday or Monday availability.
I'm available to travel elsewhere for your experiences (and would love to!); certain travel rates may apply to areas outside my usual geographic location.
If you have any questions about your experiences, please don't hesitate to contact me!
HOW DOES THE ALBUM DESIGN PROCESS WORK?
WE ARE SO EXCITED TO CREATE WEDDING ALBUMS FOR OUR CLIENTS. THEY'RE A TANGIBLE, BEAUTIFUL RECORD OF THE DAY YOUR LIFE BEGAN AS A FAMILY.
WE PRE-DESIGN CLIENT ALBUMS AS A COURTESY TO YOU. WE WILL SEND YOUR DIGITAL FILES AND AFTER YOU'VE HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT YOUR ALBUM, WE'LL SET UP A TIME TO FACETIME OR MEET IN PERSON TO FINISH YOUR DESIGN AND PRINT IT.
Can you hold a date for me?
To be fair to everyone I can't "hold" a date without a retainer and a signed contract. I accept bookings on a first come/first served basis.
What is your payment schedule?
A booking fee/retainer of approx. $1,000 is due to reserve your date. You'll have two more payments after that. 50% of your balance will be due approx. ninety days from your wedding date, with the final balance due three weeks prior to your wedding date. I'll send you an email reminder when your payments are due. I like to make things as easy as possible for you.
If I need to cancel my wedding, is the retainer refundable?
The retainer fee and all monies paid are non-refundable. The retainer guarantees that I'll hold the date exclusively for you and once you've signed the contract I do turn down all other commissions for that date.
When should we book you for our wedding?
ASAP. Since I can't "hold" dates or "pencil you in" dates are booked when...well, when they're booked. Most of my commissions contract me within a year of the wedding date, sometimes as close as two months prior, sometimes a full calendar year or more in advance. It's easy to predict what will be popular weekends, but not always easy to predict when those weekends will book up!
If we're running late, will you stay later than you were scheduled?
Surely! I do have an overtime rate and it goes into effect only with your permission and approval that I continue coverage. I'll bill you for those hours after you return from your honeymoon. Overtime includes everyone working at the event, which would be myself, my associate photographer (if one is part of your collection), and our assistant.
Do you offer discounts for off-season or non-Saturday events?
Occasionally discounts are available but are based on time of year, my travel schedule, and availability. If you have concerns about your budgetary needs, please contact me and let me know.
