The fully edited JPG files of your wedding day are always included with your wedding coverage. They will be of the highest quality, non-watermarked files. As a general rule you can expect about 100 images for every hour of coverage. These images reflect my best quality of work and represent the most important moments from your wedding day.

 

Editing these files includes color correction, detail enhancement, exposure modification, adjusting the contrast and artistic cropping. Rejected images may include duplicate or near-duplicate images, unflattering images, out of focus images or photographs that do not meet my minimum standard of quality.

On weddings over 4 hours a second photographer is a requirement. Choosing to add a second photographer to your wedding coverage is always a great idea. One photographer cannot be in two places at the same time and a second photographer is always a valuable addition to your wedding day coverage.

 

A professional second photographer is another professional wedding photographer who has photographed weddings for at least two years and is accomplished in all aspects of portrait and wedding photography.

 

An assistant second photographer is an assistant/trainee who not only assists me with the off camera lighting but is also learning to be a professional photographer. They are more accomplished than amateurs but are still fine-tuning their artistic portrait and wedding photography skills.

 

Another consideration in favor of a second photographer is realized when you consider your wedding coverage. With two photographers, you will have a larger number of images and the main events are photographed from different angles so, should one photographer’s view be compromised for whatever reason, an important moment won’t be missed.

Top Reasons For Having A Bridal Session Before Your Wedding Day

 

1) The comfort of knowing exactly what you will look like in your wedding dress before your wedding. It’s great to know how your hair, make up, dress, shoes, and accessories all work together- it’s like a dress rehearsal before the big day.

 

2) You get a relaxed and stress-free setting to explore how to become comfortable in front of the camera and how to interact with your photographer. Instead of working together for the first time on the wedding day, you and your photographer already have experience and can maximize the available time to get the best pictures possible without adding unnecessary stress to a wildly emotional day. You will feel more relaxed and comfortable on the morning of your wedding knowing that the photographer has already captured plenty of beautiful portraits of you.

 

3) Location Location Location: Different Backgrounds and change of scenery. Most of the time my brides get dressed and ready in their hotel room, which may not always be the most glamorous background for photos. The pre-bridal shoot will give you the opportunity to take your photos in a studio and/or a private outdoor setting that allows your photographer to control both the lighting and background.

 

4) The details: Your bridal session is also a perfect time to capture detail shots of the rings, mementoes and the dress and leaves more time on your wedding day for images of you and the wedding party.

 

Wedding Books and Wedding Albums

 

All book and album prices include professional album design and formatting and hundreds of cover material options.

 

There are so many choices when it comes to wedding books and albums.

Duplicate books, other sizes, styles and materials are available so you can create a book to suit your personal style.

 

High-end albums are made of luxurious materials from genuine leather, silk brocades or vegan friendly materials. They are expertly bound, hand-made hardcover books that include the highest quality photographic prints mounted to rigid pages. Please contact me for pricing on these high-end albums.

Raw Original Files

These files have no corrections and are not suitable for printing or Internet media without conversion to a different file format. They are delivered via a client-owned USB or external hard drive and may not be used in any media outlet as taken by Sally Carpenter.

 

4” X 6” Prints

 

From $350. The price depends on the amount of hours of coverage you have selected. The quality of these professional lab prints is far superior to the prints you will receive from a normal consumer lab. They are all color corrected and normally include all the fully edited images from your wedding day. They will be luster coated which enhances color and contrast plus adding a little more protection against scratches and finger prints.

When you want to have a photograph to hang above your mantle or pass down to future generations, I offer fine art museum-quality photographs. These photographs are printed on archival Hahnemuhle, Canson or Moab papers and you can choose from either a velvet matte, semi-gloss luster or metallic paper.
