The RMP Wedding Experience: Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE IN MY ENGAGEMENT, BRIDAL AND WEDDING GALLERIES?
On average, I end up sending anywhere from 100 - 150 images from an engagement or bridal session. With that being said, I’m not one to really put a “limit” on how many images you’ll receive. I essentially remove the images where eyes are closed or are duplicates and edit the remaining, regardless if that’s 100 images or 200! For wedding galleries, every wedding is different and the size of galleries often depend on how much time we have set aside in your timeline for portraits, the size of your wedding, etc. As a rule of thumb, you can expect anywhere from 50 - 80 images per hour of coverage time (but again, I don’t limit it, that’s just on average)!
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY WEDDING IMAGES TO BE DELIVERED?
A link to your online gallery will be sent within 8 - 10 weeks of your wedding date. With that being said, I know how hard it is to wait for your photos, so I’m always sure to post lots and lots of peeks on my blog as quickly as possible to hold ya over until you receive your full wedding gallery. And of course I’ll share plenty peeks on social media too!
HOW DO YOU RECOMMEND I PRINT MY WEDDING IMAGES?
Well, well well, I’m so glad you asked! Check out my post on printing recommendations HERE!
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Heck to the yes! Traveling to new cities, states and countries for weddings and engagement or bridal sessions has become one of my absolute favorite parts of running RMP. If you’re getting married outside of Texas or wanting to book a little weekend trip for your engagement session or bridals, let’s chat details! More often than not I’m able to work a good deal depending on the location!
ALRIGHT, HOW MUCH IS THIS THING GONNA COST?
On average my couples spend anywhere from $3,000 - $3,500 plus tax on their wedding day. That’s including engagement and bridal sessions too! Smaller weddings and elopements will obviously be a bit less. I will be the first to say, I GET that weddings are expensive and I remember being in your shoes thinking “holy cow - why so expensive?” Wedding photography can vary in pricing based on how long a photographer has been in the industry, what equipment / gear they use, their process for backing up and ensuring your images are safe and sound until delivered to you, and whether it’s their full time or part time job. It will all be a little different based on what it costs each person to run their business and how much time they put not just into the wedding day but into the client experience and the editing + delivery of galleries. I’ve set my pricing based on a mix of all of the above factors. If you think I might be a good fit for your day, I would LOVE to hear from you and send you my RMP Wedding Guide - it’s got all the goods (including exact pricing for my various wedding collections).
