Tamara & Brian’s Long Island City Wedding Brunch

So, let’s say you’re the kind of couple who is just not that interested in having an engagement shoot.  How then to use the two hours of portrait time offered in my wedding photography packages?  Creatively, of course!  Tamara and Brian are one such couple.  They asked if I could photograph their Long Island City wedding brunch instead of an engagement shoot.  No problem!  And thus, today’s blog post chock full of photos from Tamara and Brian’s lovely brunch.  Bon appetit!

Tamara & Brian’s Long Island City Wedding Brunch

My Wedding Packages

Bride and groom holding Mr. and Mrs. pillows at a Long Island City wedding brunchI try to get as creative as possible with all my clients.  While my packages offer two hours of portrait time, you are by no means limited to using this time for an engagement shoot.  How about a ‘trash the dress’ portrait shoot?  Or coverage for your rehearsal dinner?  Or even two hours of coverage at your bridal shower?  Use your two hours however you wish — even a year for now for a full family portrait.  You’ve got the time…use it how you want!

To recap, every wedding I photograph always includes the following:

  • An extensive pre-shoot consultation, during which I work with you to develop a shot list and timeline
  • Photo shoot location visits to make sure everything is prepared and to assess the lighting for your wedding venue
  • No limits on the number of photos taken: on average, 75 photos delivered for every hour of event photography, and 50-75 photos delivered for every hour of portraiture
  • Post-production editing and color correction for all images, with an average of three hours of post-production work for every single hour of photography
  • High-resolution image files with personal-use print release; no watermarks ever
  • A black and white, high-resolution duplicate of each color image
  • An online, password-protected gallery to conveniently share your photos and order prints
  • The best 20+ images are ready to view within 48 hours and will be posted online for you to share
  • Final delivery of all edited images within four weeks’ time (five weeks for any wedding in Sept/Oct/Nov)
  • All images are delivered in JPG format via digital download, and are sized both for print and for the web
  • A customized flash drive containing all of edited images is also available upon request

I offer both an hourly rate, and three special packages:

  • For small weddings requiring only a few hours of coverage, my rate is $400 per hour (with a two-hour minimum)
  • For engagement portraits, separate bride and groom portraits, and boudoir sessions, my rate is $300 per hour (with a two-hour minimum)
  • For wedding-related events, such as rehearsal dinner coverage, bridal showers, morning-after brunch coverage, and mehndi ceremonies, my rate is $300 per hour (with a two-hour minimum)
