Wedding portraits aren’t just what we do, it’s what we’re passionate about.

 

With 10 years experience and over 200 weddings photographed, we still find our photojournalistic style the best way to capture your perfect wedding day. Our job is to photograph your life’s biggest moments while letting you enjoy them. It’s what inspired us to start Lifeworks Photography Studio and its what we still believe in today. Nothing makes us happier than telling the story of your life.

You've got questions? We've got answers!

 

HOW MUCH ARE YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES?
Our wedding packages start at $2,000 and go up from there. Our average wedding client spends between $2,500 & $3,000, but every couple’s needs and wants differ, so we’d love to discuss your options. Give us a call or send us a message. 

HOW DO WE BOOK?
We require a $500 non-refundable retainer that goes toward your purchase to hold your day/time. We never double book a day, meaning we take your day off our marketing calendar, which is why it is non-refundable.  

HOW SOON SHOULD I BOOK MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Honestly? As soon as you can. Typically we book our weddings 8 months to a year in advance, so the sooner you can book, the better chance of our availability. We also only accept a limited number of weddings a year to keep our sanity and spend time as a family. If you're wondering about availability, please contact us.

DO YOU OFFER MORE THAN ONE SHOOTER/PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes! In fact, that’s the only way we offer our packages. We’ve found it best to have more than one shooter for all our brides and grooms to insure you get all the angles covered for your big day. It helps ensure that you get the full amount of coverage for your day. 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS OR DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! We love new locations and traveling. Generally we travel in a 60-mile radius for free, but offer very limited travel fees for anything above and beyond that. And...if you like us enough and want us to fly out for your destination wedding, we do that too! No, seriously! We love destination weddings. 

DO I GET THE RIGHTS TO MY PHOTOS?
No. We as the artists always retain the rights to our work. But...you do get a print release to all of your images, meaning you’re welcome to make prints at your leisure whenever you want, as well as cards, books or use them for personal use all you’d like. It’s just a legal technicality, so don’t worry, you’ll be able to put them all over facebook or email them to all your relatives if you’d like. 

HOW DO YOU DELIVER YOUR PORTRAITS?
All wedding portrait packages come with a personalized storage case, designed with portraits from your wedding day and are delivered on a usb drive personalized with our logo. The usb will have all your edited portraits, your digital story book, your print release and any additional digital products in your package. 

WHAT IS A DIGITAL STORYBOOK?
Our digital storybook is the perfect way to share your edited portraits with friends and family. It’s kind of like a slideshow, but so much more. Each storybook is custom-built with music from our video production site and typically ranges between 20 and 25 min, depending on the number of hours of coverage. It’s way better than your grandparents vacation slideshow.

Wedding Products

Check out the products we offer in our wedding packages below

 

DESIGNER ALBUMS
Designer Albums is our ultimate goal for our wedding clients. Albums are important because it’s the only true everlasting piece of your wedding besides your own true memories. Technology advances over the years don’t guarantee that thumb drives or video files will be able to be played throughout the years, but books and albums will always be around. In 50 years, it’s doubtful you’ll pull your usb drive out for your grandkids, but we can almost guarantee you’ll know where your wedding album is. Our albums are printed with archival inks, premium flush mount pages with no binding, allowing us to print large designs across seems to properly show off your wedding portraits. Albums come standard with 15 spreads (total of 30 pages) and with up to 10 additional spreads that can be added as an option. A padded custom cover adds a soft aesthetic to the album to make you both fall in love all over again with your wedding day. We build a quick proof of all your wedding images and present them to you to discuss changes and make any corrections that you’d like to the album. You two get the final say on how your album looks. 

DIGITAL STORYBOOK
The Digital Storybook is more than a slideshow. It’s a story. Your story. It tells your story from the beginning of the day until the end with music played behind it and photos that come to life, rather than clicking one-by-one to show your friends and family. You’ll get to watch this in our home-studio together by yourselves for the very first time. It’s the best possible way to relive your wedding day. You’ll also get a copy of it to take home with you to share with friends and family if you so choose. 

CANVAS PORTRAITS
Remember your day with a canvas print. Canvas wall portraits are carefully printed on canvas material with archival ink and then hand-stretched to wrap around the sides making your portraits standout while hanging on your wall. The texture of canvas gives your portraits a unique look, while retaining all the clarity and vibrance of traditional prints. This is our personal favorites for our household as you’ll see when you come in for a consultation or viewing. 

THANK YOU CARDS/SAVE THE DATES
Our Thank You & Save the Date cards are printed with amazingly vibrant inks and premium quality card stock paper. We offer four different finishes, including matte, semi-gloss, gloss and art linen, as well as a fifth optional finish of pearl for an additional charge. Cards are 5x7 and size you’re allowed to choose from over 50 different designs to choose from. 

PERSONALIZED USB CASE
These personalized hard case for your usb drives are decorated with your portraits to match your albums and other products. They come with one or two slot place holders. One for your engagement shoot and one for your wedding portraits. The hard covered cases have a magnetic lock and a tight-gripping foam holder on the inside so you know where your wedding portraits will be at all times. 

PRINTS
We proudly use White House Custom Color as our sole print provider for professional portraits. WHCC is a leader in high quality professional printing and offer a fast production time and shipping options to get you hanging all your prints. Portraits are printed with archival inks and are attached to a hard backing for all prints 11x14 and larger, making sure  that your prints never curl at the corners or warp inside their frames. We offer a bevy of framing options and matteing options to go with any decor. All framed prints come directly from the printer ready to hang. 

PRESS PRINTED BOOKS
Press Printed Books are great alternative to our designer albums. Printed in a similar manner to our albums, but with thinner paper and binding in the center, they’re mostly ideal as guest sign in books made with your engagement portraits. Our books are made with higher quality papers and ink than your traditional books from large retailers or commercial printers. 

BRAG BOOKS
These small books are made on 5x7 proof prints and are printed in 45-page or 90-page and are ideal as gifts to parents for all their hard work and help with your wedding day. Let them choose the portraits or you choose for them. The pages are spiral bound at the top and are the perfect way for mom and mom-in-laws to show off your portraits to their friends and coworkers.

Narrowing down our favorite portraits is probably our hardest task. Our wedding portraits are kind of like our children. We love each one for different reasons. They’re all unique and lovely in their own way. But alas, we must choose. These are just a small snippet of our favorites over the last few years. Our favorite part of choosing these is diligently sifting through each couple’s gallery and remembering the details of each day. Hopefully our clients feel an ounce of the nostalgia we do when we look at these. And most importantly, we’d like to thank our clients wholeheartedly for making these memories with us.
