Thank you for your interest in investing with Blackwell Photography on your wedding day. We understand how important it is and want to provide you with clear and important details regarding our pricing.
Our online gallery is provided by a great company, Smugmug. They provide unlimited high resolution hosting and professional printing. After your photos are done being processed and edited you will receive a link to your Online Gallery. From this link you will be able to view all your photos in a number of ways (via slideshows, on a mobile phone, and individually big or small). You can then download individual high resolution photos, download ALL of the images, order prints, share the photos on Facebook and other social networks and a whole lot more. Your Online Gallery will be hosted at the same place for years and years to come so you can always come back and view the photos or order more prints!
When you order a package that comes with 1 photographer you are either going to be working with Marc or Stacey Blackwell. We both have unique yet similar styles. We also compliment each other creatively and have grown leaps and bounds since we opened our doors. When you work with either of us you can rest assured that you're getting one of the best photographers in Southern California.
When you work with both Marc & Stacey you're getting the complete package. You're getting 2 awesome photographers with creative styles. You're getting the female perspective as well as the male edge. With 2 photographers you get twice as many photos and ensure details are more than covered.
We work with Blurb, a photo book printing company to publish our photo books. We've worked with this company for years, printing dozens of books for ourselves and clients. Not only do they have lots of options, sizes, templates and looks but it also allows open collaboration from all parties involved. The quality is great, the price is affordable and we couldn't be more excited to offer these fine products to our awesome clients.
We work with a Forbeyon to provide you with beautiful high quality. We help you with every step of the processes, from narrowing down your favorite images, to which type font you want on the cover. Leave the designing up to us and sit back and wait while your album is delivered right to your door! Or Grandma's door, cuz - you know she loves those leather bound albums!
DVDs come with certain packages or a la carte and are a great way to receive, back up and share your photos. You can either opt to receive a DVD (or DVDs depending on how many images) via the mail or we can generate a link (or links) for you to download all the images directly to your computer. Either way works for us and we're happy to provide this service.
An engagement shoot is a great way to get to know each other before the day of the wedding. We will collaborate on unique locations, visually appealing props, and help you decide which outfits you and your significant other should wear as we explore the city and have a blast taking photos. An engagement session comes with unlimited time and locations, an online gallery, and really, really cool images.
Just as important as having professional photography, you may want to make sure your wedding day is videoed. We collaborate with Make My Day Videography. They offer High Definition Digital Videography at affordable rates and we highly recommend them.
Photobooths are the latest rage. You may want to incorporate that into your wedding and we would be more than happy to find and hire the right company for you. Ask us for more details!
Remember prints? You know, the paper matte or glossy 4x6s you put in albums? We offer those too! We offer a wide variety of prints from small to big. You can even order wrapped canvases for your wall, coffee mugs with your spouses' face on it, or t-shirts. But let's not get too crazy. We order all our prints from a great lab in San Fransisco, Bay Photo and can vouch for their quality. They even offer frames! Ask us for more details on prints and print packages!
Processing and Editing
We process each and every photo we take. Your online gallery comes with ALL of the best images from your engagement shoot or wedding. Processing ensures the highest of quality and creativity for each photo. We color correct, lighten or darken, crop if need be and or make photos black and white. If you have a special request, or want a photo retouched or edited, just let us know! Certain charges may apply for major touch ups.
We ask all our clients to review and sign a mutual agreement between Blackwell Photography and yourselves. This makes sure we are all on the same page about EVERY THING and there is no confusion before, during or after the wedding.
Retainer and Balance
We ask for a retainer of at least half the total amount to hold your date. The remaining balance is due 14 days before your wedding.
Have more questions? We understand - there is a lot to think about. Don't hesitate to contact us!
