There are many different ways photographers will put together a wedding photography package. There are generally pros and cons to each type of package. You can use the chart below to assist you in analyzing the package type that fits what you are wanting.  For information about our packages and what is included, you can fill out a package request form.

Package Type Description Pros Cons

  • Printed photographs are better than digital files for preservation reasons
  • Photographs printed by the photographer will be better quality
  • Prints are loose or come in a box and can easily be lost or damaged
  • It will be up to you to organize the pictures in a photo album or scrapbook
  • You have to purchase duplicate or larger prints from the photographer
CD only The photographer provides a CD of the images from the wedding day
  • You have a file of every image taken
  • You can print images out at your convenience
  • Release of copyright is generally given from the photographer to you
