All wedding packages include an engagement session where digital images for social media and small prints and press products (e.g., "save the date" cards) are included.
Standalone engagement sessions are $250 for the session fee. Afterwards, you will be able to view an online gallery of images from which you can purchase prints and products, such as a signing book for your wedding:
If I am retained as your wedding photographer after your engagement session, the session fee will be deducted from your wedding package.
The price to photograph your marriage proposal begins at $300 and includes planning the proposal, as well as the edited images, suitable for social media, delivered to you digitally within 24 hours so you can announce your engagement.
The price may vary depending on the location of the proposal and whether I am needed to scout a suitable area. Living near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I visit frequently and I know several locations where either I can remain out of sight or it would not be unusual to see a photographer present (looking as if they are taking a picture of a waterfall but secretly waiting for the moment to capture it).
I know how important this day will be for you and her, so planning is key. If you are unfamiliar with the area or will be coming from out-of-town, I provide you with a plan that includes pictures of the location and notation on where you and your girlfriend need to place yourselves to provide a good vantage point for pictures. Weather can be unpredictable in East Tennessee so we will always have a backup plan.
After she says yes, if you want her to know I am there, I will stay with you for a short time to take some portraits of the two of you, included in the price.
