I know that there are a plethora of options when it comes to photography and video, and it truly means so much that you are trusting me with your images. I can assure you that what we capture on your wedding day will be moments and memories you'll cherish throughout the years!
This proposal is meant to serve as a snapshot of your day and our plans for coverage.
You'll be able to find all your information regarding who will be covering what and where during your big day, which payment option and plan you'd like to accept etc.
At the end of this prompt there will be a form that you can use to help inform me of a narrowed selection of packages, payment plans, as well as ask me any further questions that you may have or provide me with further information on your wedding itinerary.

Whether I am leading your photography, or leading your videography, I will be present in all areas of creative management as well as present on highlight and important moments throughout the day. My main focuses are going to be capturing with a wider lens, aiming to create images that encompass the entire moment.

Payment Plans Available
*Please note that your initial deposit is non refundable. This varies from payment plan to payment plan. Your deposit holds the date for the event and clears it off the calendar of all creative teams involved.
From the day the proposal is accepted, we take the remaining months up to 30days before the event and equally split the cost to help lighten the load and make it easier on your budget by spreading out the deposit.
3 Months from June = $400/month
The 40-30-30 Split is a 40% deposit up front, 30% halfway through the remaining months until one month before the event, and the final 30% one month before the event.
40% in June = $480
30% in July = 360
30% in August = $360
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 Big Day. This option allows for bonus prints and other add-ons as thank you for your generosity.
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.
