Wedding Photography Pricing

A la carte coverage

I fully believe that every wedding is different just as each couple. Different wants, needs, and desires, which is why I have created the perfect a la carte system for you. Start with the hours you believe you’ll need and if you want a second photographer. Scroll through this page to find more pricing for different wedding services and products I offer.

Hourly Coverage

Every wedding includes me and my assistant so I can quickly create photographs within the timeline of the wedding day. A second photographer is available if needed.

If you want help determining how many hours you need and if a second photographer is necessary, schedule a phone consultation or send me a message and I will answer these questions and more.

If you already have a good idea, simply use the wedding coverage calculator to view pricing!

Travel fees only apply when weddings are greater than 80 miles from Lexington, KY. Travel fees are based on total driving time to and from the wedding.

I use Google Maps to determine the driving time. If the trip is 2.5 hours between Lexington and your venue, the total driving time would be 5 hours.

If driving time is outside of six hours, then other travel accommodations may be required. Read about destination weddings below for more information!



The standard delivery time for your wedding photos is three weeks from your wedding date. However, I am happy to rush your photos for a fee of $400 and deliver your gallery ten days after your wedding.

Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are priced based on wedding coverage + travel. If air travel is required, travel cost would include airfare, rental car, and hotel costs. If travel is within driving range, travel would be calculated by round trip drive time + hotel. Since travel can vary greatly between locations, please schedule a phone consultation or send me a message to receive a quote. Also, go to my destination wedding page for more information!

Editing & Retouching

Editing is included with your wedding coverage. This includes correcting white balance, exposure, contrast, and cropping images. This editing creates a cohesive look to your wedding gallery.

Retouching requires more involved techniques and includes object removal, skin retouching, teeth whitening, etc. Retouching is available for $20 per image. Any photographs included in wedding albums or ordered through me for fine art prints will receive complimentary retouching.

Wedding Albums

Complimentary retouching is included for images in your album. I custom design the layout of your photographs and then your album is handcrafted by a local small business using the finest materials in the world. Such as Italian leathers, Japanese silks, and European linens. 

Albums come in three size. 8×8, 10×10, or 12×12 inches. Album prices begin at $750, and increase depending upon the options you choose. Visit my Wedding Album page for more information.

Fine Art Prints

Your wedding deserves to be displayed in your home, your families’ homes, and cherished for generations. Fine art prints are printed on Canon archival quality paper, and come matted for a beautiful finish. Fine art prints begin at $150 for a 7×10 print in an 11×14 mat. Go to my products page for more information!
