Pricing for Wedding Photography in New Orleans

As a consumer, when I'm shopping for a product or service, I vastly prefer when the website for the company I am considering has complete pricing information readily available. While I can understand the marketing and sales technique of requiring that a potential customer contact me in order to receive my prices, I prefer to be completely up-front and transparent about my pricing.

Photography-only full wedding packages range from $1675 to $2275, and packages with albums start at $2950. Coverage for intimate weddings starts at $975, and weekday elopements in New Orleans start at $500. Complete details are available by downloading the PDF below.

I offer packages that include ample hours of coverage for larger events along with beautiful album options, as well as packages that are compatible with smaller budgets, including special options just for couples who wish to elope in the New Orleans area or who are having a very small event that only require a few hours of coverage time.

And although I have an assortment of packages that have been designed based on my experience with what works best for most weddings, custom packages can be built to accommodate the special needs of events that do not readily fit with my regular packages.

I photograph weddings throughout the New Orleans metro area, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, the MS Gulf Coast, and other parts of Mississippi such as Hattiesburg, Jackson, and Picayune with no travel fees. I am also available for engagement and bridal portrait sessions, with or without a wedding booking, and I am also experienced with photographing marriage proposals.

All packages include the high-resolution images with a copyright release for non-commercial use, which means you do not have to order your prints from me. Wedding day images for full packages are delivered on a custom USB flash drive. Also included in most of my packages is special type of archival DVD media called M-DISC, which has a much longer projected lifespan than standard writable optical media or flash drives, ideal for long-term off-site storage of wedding day images. For more information about properly storing and preserving your images, see this article.

If you have any questions, or would like to check availability or set up a consultation, please feel free to email me or call 504-453-8029. Though I usually book about 8-10 months in advance, even if your wedding is just a few months (or a few weeks!) away it still doesn't hurt to inquire, as there's a possibility I may have the date open by chance.
