A beautiful wedding we photographed at The Deering Estate

Hi Linda,

Nice talking with you.
Here are my notes that I have about your wedding.
Do they look right?
  • Tuesday, August 14, 2018
  • You don’t want the getting ready covered
  • Ceremony at the Coral Gables Courthouse – we know it very well
  • See our courthouse wedding photography gallery
  • About 10 people will attend
  • You don’t want an option for an engagement photoshoot in advance (see our engagement gallery)
  • You don’t want an option for videography with an edited highlight video (watch video samples here)
  • If you do video, do you want some drone video footage? (see our drone video weddings)
  • You’d like 1 photographer for about 90 minutes – 2 hours of coverage
  • You’d like to do some photos by the “Umbrellas exhibit” in the Gables after
  • You might want an option for an album  (watch this 90 second video describing our albums)
  • Sunset on your day is at 7:57pm – PLEASE keep this in mind if you would like your ceremony and formal photos when there is good sunlight.  If you need help with timing, please feel free to call Liam before you print your invitations.

Does that sound right?

P.S. And we included a 24 hour discount in case you’d like the price even lower.

You can lower the price of your contract

3 different ways …

Nearly all of our clients ask us for some type of discount.   And we understand.  Weddings are expensive.  So we offer you 3 different discounts right up front:   A 24 hour discount; Pay with check discount & Pay in Full discount.  Let me explain:

  • 24-hour discount – Save 4% if you pay your deposit within 24 hours of receiving our price quote.
  • Pay with Check discount – Save another 4% if you make all your payments with check or bank transfer versus credit or debit cards.
  • Pay in Full discount – Save another 5% if you you pay the entire contract off, upfront in one payment.

So, if you use all 3 discounts, you can lower the price of your contract by 13%.

If you purchase video…

Please note, if you purchase video,  our standard video package includes a “highlight” video.  Watch a sample here:

Would you like drone footage also?

And we can even add drone video footage to your highlight video for an extra charge.  Call for details.  See sample here:

What does your video package include?

All our video packages include an edited highlight video.

You can add additional items (optional) to this basic package which cost extra such as:

  • Cinematic-length video
  • 60 second Instagram style video
  • Drone video footage
  • All the unedited raw video footage

Watch more sample highlight videos here: our YouTube channel.

Our standard package does not include the longer, feature-length video.

Cinematic ­length: A cinematic ­length, also called a feature ­length video is a longer video. It usually ranges from 30-­45 minutes in length for those that enjoy reliving the full moments of the vows and special dances etc. This is an “add-on” item which you can request for an additional charge.  Please inquire.

You will also receive …

We will also create your very own smart phone App with a gallery of some of your photos.

Family & friends can download your App for free.

Here’s an example we did for another client.

Have you considered doing a “first look” before the ceremony?

There are many reasons why couples do a “first look” before the ceremony.  Read why.

And we can help you avoid the most common “1st look” mistakes couples make.

Many of our clients want a custom-designed wedding album

These are handcrafted, custom-designed, lay-flat high-quality albums.  You choose the photos and the order they appear. 30 pages with a maximum of 70 photos. Printed on hard cardstock (heavy paper for Classic book).  Treated for fingerprints and UV light.  And up to 3 rounds of editing all included!  The larger the book the at bigger sizes the photos appear.
