Wedding photos are more than just individual images; there’s an entire story to be told about your day.
Your album is your first family heirloom which is why all of my albums are hand bound to last. They’re printed on archival photo paper and each spread is designed in house and your album is customized with fabric or a photo cover, featuring an image from your wedding.
After your wedding, I will pre-design your album for the initial draft, but you’re in full control during the revision process. Each album is designed to tell the full story of your wedding day; from start to finish.
Albums are available in either 10×10 story book or 10×10 flush mount albums. Each album comes with 30 spreads and an option of linen covers or a photo cover. Additional spreads may be purchased for 100/spread
FLUSH MOUNT ALBUMS are printed on thick, durable pages that lay flat for viewing and displaying. The weight of the pages combined with lustre photo paper and are a little more traditional.
STORYBOOK ALBUMS are my personal favorite. They’re hardcover albums which are lighter in feel. They are printed on gorgeous felt matte paper with invisible binding for full spread, flat image viewing. The thinner pages have flexibility, but are resistant to tearing or dog-earing. The printing is most similar to the professional prints available to order from your online gallery.
And if anyone in your family would like to purchase an album to have for themselves, 8×8 duplicate copies of your album are available for $800 per album.
FAQ & Answers
- Q: What is required to reserve our wedding date and book Nessa as our photographer?
A. When you’re ready to book, I’ll send you an online contract for you to fill out online. Both the signed contract and a non-refundable retainer fee of 1500 are required to secure your date.
- Q: What are the payment options?
A: I accept checks and cash. Most of my clients make two payments, including the retainer fee.
The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding, but don’t worry – I always send out reminders to help keep you on track!
- Q: Can we add on hours if our wedding runs a little long?
A: I’m happy to stay if your wedding runs over a few minutes, however, if we stay over 30 minutes, you will be billed for overtime and no proofs will be posted until the overtime has been paid in full. Hours may be purchased to lengthen your wed-ding day package, as well. My houly rate is the same as the pre-paid rate for extra hours (450 per hour)
- Q: How long before we see our photos?
A: Engagement portraits will be posted 4-6 weeks after our session and your online wedding gallery will be up 6-8 weeks after your wedding.
- Q: How many photos will we receive?
A: Portrait sessions average about 40-60 proofs, while most weddings range between 400-600.
- Q: How will our wedding pictures be delivered?
A: I provide an online gallery for you to share with family and friends to view and order prints from and for the high res files, I’ll send either a thumb drive or a downloadable zip file of your images for you to print, share, post on Facebook, etc. Shared photos are happy photos! You are only asked to please not edit or modify them or use them for commercial purposes.
- Q: Will all of my photos be edited?
A: All of the images are print ready; they’re edited for exposure, contrast, sharpness, and color tone. I love sharing full wedding galleries to give you an idea of what a full day of coverage is like!
All images 8×10 or larger that go to print, and all photographs in your wedding album are edited for blemishes, textures, distracting elements in the photo (light switches, electrical outlets), etc.
- Q: Can I add on an album after I book?
A: You can! Package upgrades are available anytime before the final balance is paid in full.
Albums purchased after the wedding will be subject to current pricing.
- Q: When will my album be ready?
A: You can expect the first draft of your pre-designed album 1 months after your wedding is delivered. I provide 3 album drafts with unlimited changes to ensure you love your album; nothing goes to print until you love it.
After the album is aproved and any final balance is paid on additional spreads, the photos are then edited and sent to be printed and hand bound with an estimated one month turn around.
- Q: Can we meet you before we book?
A: I would just love that! I’m based in Baltimore and would love to sit down and get to know the two of you (what your favorite animals are and how planning is going and your favorite season or whatever else comes up!) while we go through some albums together.
And if you would like to chat and are not able to meet in Baltimore, I’m also available for FaceTime meetings, as well! Just let me know what times might work best for you and we can set something up! I look forward to chatting with you!
I really value your time and I appreciate you reading through the pricing guide and FAQ. Look at you go, though, you’re even reading this part, way down here at the bottom!
I know, I know – I’ve basically written you a novel, but I do hope I’ve answered some of your questions! Of course, I’d be happy to answer any other questions you my have (what’s my favorite color, what kind of dog is best, etc) if you’d like to reach out.
I’m an open book if you have any inquiries or would like to see some full galleries, please feel free to contact me via email using my contact form. Thank you again and talk soon!
