PRICING

One of the key elements of wedding photography pricing is the quality of the resulting photographs. Here, a bride and groom embrace on a summer day.

The Process

Before we even get to the point of discussing wedding photography pricing, I should make you comfortable with what I’m all about. And it’s this: your story. Therefore, I’m committed to using my photography to help tell it the right way. I call this my artistically-engineered photography experience and it begins from the moment that we first touch base and continues all the way until I deliver your prints to you.

So, here’s the rundown on my approach:

1. We’ll Meet

After we make initial contact, I’ll invite you to meet for a complimentary, no-obligation consultation. During this 20-30 minute meeting, I’ll ask you about the high-level details of your wedding, your photography needs and goals, and the timeline and location of your special day. What’s more, it’s going to be a conversation; I’m genuinely interested in getting to know you two. Please feel free to ask anything! Using Meet, FaceTime, or Skype to meet virtually is always an option, too.

2. We’ll Take Pictures

This is the fun part! On your wedding day, I utilize a mixed photography approach. To explain, I capture candid moments in a documentary manner as well as efficiently guide you through the portrait portions. I’ll use what I’ve learned about you two during our conversations and your wedding planning. You’re my clients and I’m here for you. Tell me your ideas along the way and we’ll see if we can try them out.

3. You’ll Enjoy Your Artwork

Definitely the cherry on top, this is the last stage of my artistically-engineered photography experience. During this stage, I’ll present you with a digital gallery of your photos. Accordingly, I’ll help you keep track of the ones you love and would like to have in your album and on your walls. Then, I’ll place your order with my professional lab partner and deliver your prints a short time after.

Wedding Photography Pricing and Packages

Packages from under 2000…

After we’ve talked and decided that we’re a great fit for each other, we’ll get into the logistics of booking. Upon contract signing, a nonrefundable initial payment of 50% of the total package fee is due to reserve your date and retain my services. Once this is handled, I’ll jump right in and become more than just a wedding vendor to you, but a friend right from the beginning. Starting under 2000, my wedding photography pricing offers great value for your money.

Engagement and Couple Portrait Sessions

Like wedding photography, couple portrait sessions tell stories, too. Once I’ve convinced you that I can make your perfect portrait session come true, it’ll be time to book.

Then, after your session, you can round out your experience by purchasing additional artwork of your favorite images.

Artwork & Prints

Helping you tell your story for years to come

Artwork is the final piece of the experience that I create for my couples. Every story deserves better than being stored on a hard drive or getting lost in the cloud. This is why I’ve put in the time to research photographic artwork options, in order to provide you with physical products that I know you’ll love.

Frequently Asked Questions About Wedding Photography Pricing and More

I want you to be comfortable, so feel free to ask me anything when you reach out. In the meantime, here are some of the more common questions that I’m asked about my wedding photography and other offerings:

Is anything included in your wedding photography pricing besides the packages themselves?

When you book me for your wedding, you’ll obviously have a great experience consisting of photography and ending with artwork. But, there’s much more to it than that. Put another way, I’ll be trying to be a friend, an honorary member of your wedding party. Providing advice, guides, and finding out about your most important details are just a few of the tasks I’ll take on. Your other vendors will be on my radar, too, especially your planner (if you have one) and venue. Within a few weeks of your big day, I’ll find a convenient time for us to get together on Meet or the phone to go through any last-second changes. By the way, I’m a resource to you the entire time. You can reach out any point with questions or concerns!

Where can we read reviews of your work and experience?

Past clients have written me great reviews. You can check me out on Google and Facebook to see them.

Do you only offer services in Connecticut?

Not at all! Though I live here in Connecticut, I’m more than happy to travel elsewhere to capture your day. Please note, however, that a fee will be assessed for services provided outside of the state.

Have you ever photographed a wedding at my venue before?

Photographing weddings since 2019, chances are your venue is new to me. No problem! So as to be efficient, I’ll even contact your venue’s management beforehand, in some cases, to learn what I can or even visit. Regardless, and especially if your wedding will be taking place at a private location, I’ll arrive early enough to be adequately prepared.

How soon will we receive our photos and how many will we get?

After a typical wedding day, I deliver about 40 images per hour of coverage. As a result of an average 45-minute portrait session, your proof gallery will contain about 20 images. Depending on my workload at the time, I usually am able to finish editing a wedding within four weeks and a portrait session within one or two. Please note that these are typical figures.

Will we receive every photo, unedited photos, etc.?

As a full-service wedding photographer, part of my process includes choosing only the best photos from your day and editing each and every one of those selections. Therefore, your finished gallery will be a curated selection of the images I capture, telling your story in the best way possible. One of the things that I’ll do when helping you solidify your timeline is ask you for a list of must-have photos. While wedding days are quite unpredictable, planning methods like this will help to ensure that I’m working hard to meet your expectations.

How do we receive our artwork?

After choosing your prints, I’ll place an order with my print lab for your artwork. Depending on the size of your order, it usually takes no more than a couple of weeks for the prints to arrive to me. Whenever practical, I prefer to hand deliver client artwork. Any digital images you purchase (as well as the ones included in your wedding package) will securely uploaded to my website and I will email you a link to your private gallery. Given their importance, I always recommend that clients keep their outwork out of direct sunlight and back up their digital images.

Our venue requires that our vendors have insurance. Do you?

You bet. Terrence Irving Photography, LLC is fully registered, legal, and insured.

What have you changed as a result of COVID-19?

To help ensure the safety of my couples, their guests, and myself, I will be photographing weddings while wearing a mask until further notice. Anyone working for me during weddings and sessions will be required to, too. You may also notice me stepping aside from time to time to use hand sanitizer or wash my hands. We’re in this together!

We’re interested in learning more. How do we go about that?

Just head over to my Contact page and fill out the short form to send me an email. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can, usually within 24 hours.
