40% in July = $260

Pay in Full
This is a more rare option that we see, but it has happened! Paying in full upfront secures our team in getting all the gear and materials necessary to prepare for your Proposal.
Custom Payment Plans
If you do not see a payment plan that fits your needs, feel free to select the "custom payment plan" option in the form at the bottom of this proposal and I'd be happy to work with you on options that suit you best!
The Content Ratio
60% - Photo
The majority of your deliverables will be Photography based. Photographer's needs in regards to content will be primary to that of the videographers. Throughout your day be sure to familiarize yourself with our photography team and get them in contact with you Point of Contact for the day to help ease your stress throughout the day.
40% - Video
Though a lower percentage in value, you will receive 100% in quality and effort! This just means that in regards to director priority, you'll hear less from the videographer throughout the day. We will be capturing in a more subtle and candid way while being mindful of the photography team.
The Engagement Session
The Engagement session is included in your proposal package! This will be a great time for us to work and get comfortable together. It's a time to have fun and really take the time to fall into each other and celebrate your new milestone.

The West Bottoms
If you are looking for a location that offers urban and rustic tones, the West Bottoms is the best option! From brick, stone, and metal buildings and walls to wood doors, graffiti, train tracks and fields, the West Bottoms has it all.
