Thank you for considering us as you plan your upcoming wedding! Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the biggest creative decisions you'll make during your wedding planning. You'll spend time and money selecting the perfect venue, wardrobe, floral design and color palette for your day. With Nutmeg Photography LLC, you’ll have the confidence in knowing that your wonderful milestone will be thoroughly documented with the care and attention to detail that such an event deserves. We present you with a blend of classic, photojournalistic images that stand the test of time and will never go out of style. Our goal is to tell the unique story of your day in pictures, documenting the emotion and love in your day with a timeless elegance you'll fall in love with over and over again.
A Glimpse into our Wedding Day Photography
You will always have 2 photographers covering your wedding. We feel 1 is insufficient to catch all the important moments going on during the day, so no discounts are available for booking “just one of us”. Based on your timeline for the day, we arrive at the Bride and Bridemaid’s “getting ready” location for all the hair, makeup and “first look” photos. The Groom & Groomsmen will also have their wedding day bonding and preparations captured in all their fun, handsome (& sometimes silly) glory. We aim to catch a mix of candid and posed shots of both sides of the bridal party. You’ll find we are fun and easy-going, but we also help keep you organized and on-track since time flies!
We’ll head to the church or ceremony location and candidly photograph your loved ones arriving and greeting one another. Many angles of your ceremony are covered with 2 of us strategically positioning ourselves to catch the special moments. Please know that restrictions imposed on us by the venue management (such as off-limits areas or “no flash photography” rules) may limit our ability to photograph everything adequately. Please speak with your clergy or site directors to find out about such restrictions. Should your event venue require proof of our insurance prior to the wedding, we will be happy to provide you with that information upon request.
We will cover your grand exit at the conclusion of the ceremony. The reception’s cocktail hour is traditionally when the “formal” posed family photographs are taken. Please build in at least one hour dedicated strictly to this photography time. This hour should not include your travel time between the church and reception. Once the reception gets going, we cover it all - introductions, first dances, toasts & speeches, guests dancing, bouquet and/or garter tosses, cake cutting and any other points we discussed at our consultation. You will receive plenty of candid guest and bridal party photos as well as detail shots of your cake, rings, flowers, favors & centerpieces.
After the Wedding
When the wedding is over, hand-editing & retouching of your many photos begins. In approximately 6-8 weeks, your finished high-resolution digital files will be ready. We'll also check in with you about print and album design options. Our couples can expect to receive several hundred photos in their collection, be assured the emotions & details are all beautifully covered. You will receive a mix of candid, semi-candid and posed photographs of moments throughout your day. Some photos sing to us in black & white, so you will see a nice variety of those as well.
Our Wedding packages start at $3995.00 (sales tax is additional) and are quoted from there, according to the details of your event. Included in the initial price is local travel, a full-day (8 hours) of coverage with 2 photographers, our creative/post-processing time, all final images in high resolution on a USB drive and a print release. Additional factors such as extended travel/accommodation requirements for us, number of venues to cover and any add-on items (bridal/parent albums, print packages) will determine your final price. A non-refundable 50% deposit (half of your total quoted price) will be due in order to reserve your wedding date.
We are happy to schedule a complimentary consultation meeting with you. Meet us, ask questions, view sample work and learn more about our wedding photography. You will receive a Wedding Welcome Package in the mail with your Wedding Photography Agreement (aka “Contract”) and all the information you’ll need to plan this piece of your wedding. Since all your day's details may not be fully planned until a month or 2 before the wedding, we'll meet for a final planning appointment around then so we can discuss the flow of the day (venues, timeline, etc) and be sure all of your photography needs are addressed. Your remaining balance is due 14 days prior to your event. As with all Nutmeg services, we accept cash, check or credit. Payment plans are available.
Consider booking your Engagement photo session as a bundle along with your Wedding package for a $100 savings. Engagement session prices fall under our Standard Pricing menu. Our Boudoir "Little Black Books" are popular with our brides looking to give their spouse a unique & personal gift on their wedding day - take the opportunity to do a Boudoir session (for yourself as much as for your spouse!). We promise you'll look ah-mazing!
Albums & Print Products
Hard-copy print or canvas packages and bridal/parent albums may be added into your package at any time. Life gets going pretty quickly after your wedding, so we recommend working the album into your initial package before time gets away from you. We offer superior archival-quality print products through our professional print house and custom album vendor. You will have invested in professional photography - complete your experience by displaying your images as heirloom pieces of art in your home.
Custom album production time depends on the size and style album you order, but turnaround time is about 8 weeks. You'll have input on cover style/wording/material as well as what photos are included. To ensure perfection prior to printing, you'll have a chance to view/make changes/approve your album from cover to cover using our virtual proofing tool.
