Pricing

All photography work require a 50% retainer fee before the session to secure your date on my calendar. The balance is due the day of the session. Please read my cancellation policy.

Events

I cover events on an hourly rate, with a two hour minimum. Most events can be covered in two to three hours. I do not work any fixed fee arrangements. Client gets a CD containing all useable digital images (unretouched and unedited).

  • Monday through Friday Event - $50.00 per hour, two-hour minimum billing
  • Saturday Event - $75.00 per hour, two-hour minimum billing
  • Sunday or Federal/State Holiday Event - $100.00 per hour, two-hour minimum billing
  • Any event hours worked after midnight will be billed at $100.00 per hour regardless of the hourly rate before midnight.

Weddings

I rarely photograph weddings any more, limiting myself to doing so for a family member or other special relation.

However, I would welcome the chance to do your engagement portrait or bridal portrait and to discuss with you what you can expect in securing the services of a wedding photographer. I can also refer you to several wedding photograpers whose work I trust and who would be glad to work with you.

Travel Time

For photography on location an hour's drive time or over 40 miles from my home in Lawrenceville, I bill travel time at $25.00 per hour.
