First of all, congratulations on your engagement and mahalo for getting in touch! I am truly honored that I made it to your list of possible wedding photographers. I have been in your shoes so I know how wedding planning feels like. One thing I can say, is hiring an amazing wedding photographer with the vision you have was one of the best decision I made for my own wedding day.
Associate shooters are carefully chosen and assigned by me and I do not take this lightly. I carefully select a couple photographers whose work reflect my own in almost every aspect. I go through the images and make the final selection and editing to make a product gallery very similar to what you would have expected as if I was the photographer who showed up to your wedding!
Wedding packages come with one associate photographer, edited digital files, a print and personal release, an online gallery that is active for one year and two year image hosting on my cloud service. Typical delivery of 60-80 images per hour of shooting. Engagement Sessions and Day-after Sessions are offered at $450 (that is a $200 discount) for all booked weddings and elopements.
8-hr package - $2850
6-hr package - $2350
4-hr package - $1850
A custom package can be provided should any of the options above not cover your needs for your wedding day!
HI GET of 4.17% NOT included in pricing above.
These rates are subject to change at any time but locked in once date is officially reserved.
Weddings outside the Big Island subject to an extra travel fee ($250).
Turnaround time for delivery of wedding images is 4-6 weeks.
Digital files will be delivered via a download link through your private online gallery.
Prints and products can be purchased at ala carte prices.
A 30% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract are required to book your wedding. A date is not considered reserved until both of these are completed. Let me know what package you are going with and I will send the contract and invoice to your email. In many cases, I will be able to create a custom package for you. Please contact me should you need something specific to your day.
The retainer can be paid via credit card or check. Your final balance will be due 14 days before the wedding day. Please scroll down for an FAQ section!
Looking forward to hearing from you and planning your wedding day photography coverage!
Are the digital files included?
Yes. Every wedding package includes unlimited downloads of your digital images in a gorgeous online gallery (online backup for 1 year included!). They are all beautifully edited and a print release is included. You can print them anywhere – as many times and as often as you would like!
How many images do we receive from our wedding?
This will depend on how many hours are included in your chosen package, as well as how many locations. You can plan on about 60-80 images per hour.
When will I receive my images?
You can expect to see your images around 4-6 weeks after your wedding.
How do I book?
Easy peasy! A signed online contract + 30% retainer need to be completed to hold your date. This is non-refundable and will be applied to your total balance. We can do this 100% online or by mail. The remaining balance is due at least 14 days before your wedding. For inter-island destination weddings, all of the travel fees are due at the time of booking or 6 months prior to the date of the wedding which ever one comes first. Everything can be done online!
How many weddings do you shoot a year?
I give my clients my complete attention and so I do limit how many weddings I take each month and the rest are shot by a couple super trusted associates! I currently do not shoot more than 2 weddings per month so both wedding and portrait clients get the attention they deserve! And in the same way I never book more than one event in a single day!
Do you take credit cards?
Yes. I take all major credit cards along with cash and check.
What file type do you photograph in? RAW or JPEG?
All images are shot in RAW format, developed and 100% edited in my digital darkroom and given to you in high resolution JPEG format.
Can I have the unedited files? I want to do some editing of my own.
I do not release my unedited or RAW files. You will receive a 100% beautifully edited finished product.
