Focal Point Photography LLC | Information


view a short video about my style and what you receive

How much does it cost?

I try to keep things as simple as possible so I charge a flat hourly rate of $230 per hour for weddings.  An additional travel fee is added if the number of hours booked is less than four (50 cents/mile from Appleton).  The initial investment is $300--this and a signed wedding agreement locks in your date!        


What will I receive?

You will receive a flashdrive with edited images and a password-protected online gallery.  The same gallery also allows your family and friends to view and purchase digital photo downloads.


What about engagement photos?

Engagement photo sessions are separate from wedding coverage and are $140 per hour.  Multiple outfit changes and locations are included.  Like wedding coverage, session includes a password-protected online gallery where you can download the images.

What is your "style" of photography?

There are a lot of photographers out there and so defining style can be difficult.  I started my photography career as a newspaper photojournalist and therefore I cover a wedding in many of the same ways that I would cover it as a newspaper assignment.  I prefer to be a "photo ninja" (one of my wedding couples called me that).  I love just floating around, blending in to my surroundings and capturing what is happening--always looking to capture emotions and tell stories with my photographs.


What are the other benefits of choosing Focal Point Photography LLC?

I have already covered the hourly rate, quick delivery, online gallery, and photojournalistic approach, but there are other benefits!  I have a degree in photojournalism from an accredited journalism university and have been a staff photographer for two different newspapers--these experiences have given me the tools necessary to photograph in all types of conditions under varying types of pressure.

I use high quality professional equipment from Canon and top-of-the-line editing software to create exquisite photographs.  I also have backup equipment so you can have peace of mind knowing that your wedding will still get covered even if malfunctioning equipment occurs.
