Pricing & Booking

Booking wedding photography shouldn’t be painful!

Do you feel like looking at wedding photography packages and the variety of wedding photographers makes your head spin?

  • You want to love the photos and style. (the photos you see on here are the same, edited files that our clients received – if you like our style, you know what to expect.)
  • You want your photographer to be experienced. (our team has well over 700 weddings photographed, we know what to plan for.)
  • You want your wedding day’s entire story told. (We believe in telling your day’s story as complete as possible. This not only includes what you would expect to be captured – but also many documentary style moments of things many photographers miss or choose not to capture.)
  • You want to enjoy your day, not worry about the schedule. (We are one of the regions most experienced teams when it comes to planning a day’s time line. We help you plan ahead of time so when wedding day comes, you can just enjoy it.)
  • You have a budget – and you want to stay in it. (We are not the most inexpensive pricing out there but we like to think of ourselves as an extraordinarily great value when you look at our work and experience.)
 

All wedding photography packages include the following:

  • Lead photographer
  • your choice of hours of coverage
  • time line consultations

  • Save on your videography costs! We offer significant discounts on video to couples who book their videography in combination with their Sweet Olive Photography package! Add videography for as low as $600 when booked with photography. Please ask for details.

Next Steps…

If you think you might be interested in reserving your date, we can send you an online wedding agreement. It has all of the package details and pricing, your agreement and payment terms. If you choose to book, merely complete the agreement by paying your $300 non-refundable retainer. It is an instant receipt that your day is reserved for you. (your $300 retainer is applied to your package price.)

After you are booked we will send you our Wedding Day Q&A that helps us get started working with you on your time line and needs for your day.

  • Do you hold or “pencil in” dates? No, it takes a retainer being paid to hold a date. Even if someone inquires about the same date as you, the first one to place a retainer will have the date held.)
