I'm a well-known, compassionate photographer who loves to do weddings. Brides need a lot of support on their wedding day, which only sometimes does the Maid of Honor provide. I consider it part of my job to watch out for the bridal couple, pay attention to the timing of all the many things that need to happen, and help keep the day on track. Additionally, I'm a great photographer and will capture your whole day beautifully. And because I'm a photo-journalist I work hard not to let any special happenings slip by un-photographed.
Just a few of my credits: TIME Magazine, People, US Magazine, TV Guide, covers for Women's Fitness, Health & Beauty UK. Six book covers, four album covers, two Olympic Games. A New York Times best-selling list photo book published by Putnam that sold over one million copies. Five calendars. Hundreds of jobs photographing celebrites on their film and TV sets, theatre stages, sports arenas, and in their homes. And, to date, 64 weddings. You can easily view over 130 samples of my work on www.ChristieJenkinsPhotography.com.
What I offer the bride:
1. Your complete wedding day, from an hour before the ceremony through all the major events of the reception.
2. Respectful, unobtrusive, no flash photography throughout your ceremony (yes, sometimes it means I am hiding behind a plant or under a choir pew.)
3. All of the standard formal portraits, plus individual portraits of the couple's families and closest friends, and of course, gorgeous bride and groom portraits.
4. Complete reception coverage, from standard shots (cake, flowers, first dance) to your food, table arrangements, and groups shots of each of your guests.
5. Whatever else needs to be done!
My two, most popular, very affordable packages are as follows:
A: All of the above (#1-5), PLUS I will GIVE YOU your film at the end of the wedding day, with instructions as to how/where to best have it developed and finished. $1,000.
B: All of the above (#1-5), and I will develop the film, assemble the photographs in a pretty proof book, and GIVE you the proof book when you return from your honeymoon, AND the negatives to keep! $1,500.
No extra charges for meeting with me, my driving time, no lists of proof numbers that you have to give me, no months of waiting to see your photos!
The more-expensive-complete-works-wedding package:
C: All of the above (# 1-5) PLUS: Photographing a pre-wedding party of your choice (such as the rehearsal dinner), giving your your proof book when you return from your honeymoon, taking your order for friends and family photos and giving you those gorgeous prints (includes 50 4x6's, 15 5x7's, 10 8x10's, 3 11x14's), AND also giving you your negatives when all is finished. Total cost: $3,000.
A: We meet, sign a contract together, half ($500) is due to hold that date for you so that I accept no other work on that day, and the other half is due at the wedding.
B: We meet, sign a contract together, half ($750) is due to hold that date for you so that I accept no other work on that day, and the other half is due when I give your proof book (within two weeks of the wedding.)
C: We meet, sign a contract together, half ($1,500) is due to hold that date for you so that I accept no other work on that day, the next $1,000 is due when I present you with your proof book (within two weeks of the wedding day), and the final $500 is due when I deliver the enlargements and negatives and other special prints that you've ordered.
I truly look forward to meeting with you in the near future!
