Michigan Wedding

Photojournalist's

Pricing Guide

My Top Two Wedding Packages Include All Of The Following:

~ You own the wedding photos and may use them however you'd like!

~ Edited (for color correction, contrast, exposure and clarity) and ready to use HIGH resolution digital files are uploaded and ready to download and/or print using my favorite professional lab within two weeks of your wedding day. I usually average over 1,000 delivered wedding photographs.

~ Photoshopped retouches done on up to 10 of your favorite wedding photos. Only 1 client has taken me up on this offer after 10 years!

~ Professional, award winning, five-star and experienced photojournalist's coverage throughout the day.

~ Multiple locations throughout Metro Detroit, Michigan are fine.

~ Free mileage up to 50 miles from Troy (otherwise it's $50 to travel 50-100 miles from my home).

~ When time allows, I set up a slide show during the reception highlighting my favorite wedding photos from your wedding day so far.

~ My stellar reputation after photographing over 1,300 weddings and having over 1,300 ecstatic couples who love vouching for me!

8 Hours Coverage

$2200 - One photographer - Me! Great for couples who have ceremonies starting later than 2 o'clock. This meets 90% of my clients needs. This is $500 savings from my hourly rate!

10 Hours Coverage

$2700 - One photographer - Me! Perfect for couples with a noon or 1 pm ceremony start time or have a really late dinner planned. This one offers a bit of breathing room in the schedule. This is $800 savings off my hourly rate!

Add A Second Shooter

+ $600 - Add in a second shooter to either of the top two packages. None of the images you see on my website are from weddings with a second shooter. I shoot 99% of my weddings solo.

Why is 8 hours the most popular? 90% of weddings do take at least 8 hours if you're looking for coverage of a bit of getting ready, the ceremony, portraits and you're having dancing and/or some activities planned after a meal. I do offer shorter hours, but that only works if you're planning a wedding without a reception, which is pretty rare.

Add-Ons, Bells and Whistles...

Wedding Albums

$1000 for either one large 14x11 inch flush mount album with 40 sides or one large 14x11 inch lay flat album with two smaller (11x8.5) identical parent albums. These are hand designed to your taste and the material alone are quite expensive. I'm happy to point you in the direction of fun DIY albums if you'd prefer.

Engagement Photos

$300 for my wedding clients. My couples tell me this is a great way to meet me, get to know each other and learn to speak Marci fluently. You'll be amazed how great you look!

Add An Extra Hour

$300/hr. for any of my wedding clients needing an extra hour of coverage. This can be added on the day of the wedding if need be.


Having a Smaller / Shorter Wedding?

4 Hours

$1400 for 4 hours of continuous coverage with one photographer. Printing and download rights of edited, high resolution digital files included.

6 Hours

$1800 for 6 hours of continuous coverage with one photographer. Printing and download rights of edited, high resolution digital files included. That's a $300 savings off the hourly rate.


Looking for shorter, smaller packages? I'm happy to work with you. The photographer for your wedding will be either myself or my shooting partner and fellow photojournalist, Rodney Curtis. The fee is $350/hr with a 4 hour minimum. If you are booking my regular, 8 or more hour wedding package (which really and truly is what 90% of clients who want coverage of a bit of getting ready and have a dinner and dancing planned really and truly need at least 8 hours), you are specifically reserving ME for the day and I will be your shooter. But of course, feel free to hire Rodney to shoot your full day as well! He's AWESOME! Travel fees will apply for any weddings further than a 20 minute drive from Troy! These shorter wedding packages also do not include the "Day Of Slideshow", since there is just not enough down time to put one together. Other than that, everything is the same as the larger packages.
