4. Review the important details:

Prices are inclusive of all state and federal taxes.  I accept payments by mailed check, VENMO, ACH transfer or credit card.  To secure a date for a wedding or elopement, I require a 30% retainer as well as a signed agreement.  The remaining 70%, plus the cost of anything you would like to add after the contract is signed, is due one week before the event.

Payment for proposals and standalone engagement shoots is due at the end of the session. No deposit is required.  Please contact me directly for information about about standalone pricing.  Additional coverage for photography and videography coverage for is $300/hour.

I do offer a reduction if your wedding or elopement is scheduled either on a weekday.  I also offer a reduction for all current and former members of the military (thank you for your service!) as well as fellow alumni of USC (Fight On!).  Please be sure to include this information in your inquiry.

Please note: Only one discount is allowed per event and the weekday discount does not apply for national holidays, associate coverage or destination weddings.

You may contact me directly at 310-874-7321 or by using the form below if you have any questions at all.   Thank you for your consideration!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Tell me about weddings:

There will always be two photographers present (Jonathan and a second shooter), at least 8 hours of coverage and a password protected online gallery where you may view, download and order prints of your wedding photos. Add-on packages with additional coverage, larger albums and engagement shoots are available as well.

For destination weddings, the rates and packages remain the same, but all travel expenses (i.e. airfare, incidentals, ground transportation and lodging) must be covered for two photographers. In exchange, we will extend our coverage to include any non-wedding related activities (i.e. hanging out by the pool, hiking, exploring, various adventures and activities) at no additional charge. This will ensure the complete story of the weekend is told.

Why do I need two photographers?

Having two photographers is always beneficial. For example, while I capture the action (you walking down the aisle), my second photographer will capture the reaction (the look on your partner's face). While I am covering you preparing, my second shooter will cover your partner. While the three of us are making beautiful sunset portraits, my second shooter can cover details and cocktail hour. While I am capturing you both reading your vows, my second shooter will photograph guest reactions. The list goes on...

Please also note that my second shooters are not just inexperienced assistants or recent photography students. They are talented, independent professionals who also have their own businesses and share a very similar documentary style approach.

Tell me about videography:

Starting in 2023, I will be offering a brand new videography add-on service for all photography bookings. This can be booked in addition to photography or as a stand-alone service. My videographers are extremely talented and experienced professionals who also run their own wedding videography businesses. They will be responsible for on-site production only and I will complete all post-production responsibilities (i.e. sound mixing, editing etc) and deliver all of the final clips. The turn-around time for videography is approximately one month. I will also be your main point of contact throughout the entire process. Of course, I would be more than happy to connect you with my videographer should you have any questions.

Do I need a videographer?

I would lean towards yes. Remember, the decision whether or not to hire a videographer shouldn't be based on how often you're going to actually watch the video. You might watch it once every three years, but even then I think knowing that it's there and having the luxury to relive those memories is definitely worth the extra expense. Also consider the value of having your vows, toasts and other spoken moments recorded beautifully so you can listen to them again and again in the future. The iPhone might be great at capturing video, but sound is not always going to be so great. Finally, I think videography is especially beneficial if your venue lends itself to beautiful cinematography or even drone cinematography.

Tell me about elopements:

Elopements are smaller, more intimate events that usually require less time and coverage. All elopement packages come with one photographer (me), up to 4 hours of coverage and a password protected online gallery where you may download your photos. Add-on packages with more coverage, engagement shoots and larger albums are available as well.

Tell me about engagement sessions:

All engagement packages come with a minimum of 2 hours coverage. If you have a really cool location in mind for a session, I would be happy to drive out there regardless of the distance, provided we can complete everything in one day. Drone photography is included (if desired) assuming we are at a location where it is safe to fly. All sessions come with a password-protected online gallery where you may view and download your photos.

Who is your associate?

My associate's name is Carsten Schertzer. He is an award-winning photographer who can cover your wedding on my behalf at a discounted rate. Carsten also serves as my certified drone pilot for wedding ceremonies as well as my second shooter when there is a need. For associate bookings, I will be the main point of contact. I will also be selecting, editing and delivering all content to you. Carsten will also be available answer any questions or concerns as well.
