$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!
$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!
+ $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.
