“DIGITAL ONLY 12 HOUR RECOVERY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGE” $2000

With the abundance of digital cameras, and so many inexperienced amateurs owning them and calling themselves “Wedding Photographers”, remember that the most important factor in selecting a Wedding Photographer today is that Photographer’s Inherent Skill, Talent, Experience and “Eye”. After that, nothing else really matters. It’s all in your Photographer’s Proven Ability to capture those once in a lifetime special moments. That being said, I can now offer my 25+ years of Wedding Photography skill and know-how to you at nearly one half the cost of my usual standard starting package. Here are the details, laid out in a very short and concise form.

  • I will be with you for up to 12 Hours of Wedding Day Photography coverage, capturing an unlimited number of images of your special day. You will receive DVD’s containing all of the Copyright Free, Adjusted and Edited Hi-Resolution Digital Images captured on your Wedding Day. Just into my 2014 season I am averaging around 2500+ Images per Wedding. That’s it. No Printed Proofs, No Albums, Just All of your Full Sized Digital Images, which will allow you yourself to print and enlarge all of your favorites, whenever, and wherever you may wish.
  • Included at NO CHARGE is a Complete, Password Protected Online Gallery, which will be posted with all of your final, edited Wedding Event Images…I provide Professionally Printed Gallery Password Cards for each place setting at your Reception, which will allow your family and guests to view, and if desired order their favorite images directly online. Posted Galleries will remain online for a minimum of one year.
  • Add up to 4 hours of Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner Coverage if you wish, on the night before, for only an additional $300. Same deal, DVD of all of the Copyright Free, Hi-Resolution Images and No Printed Proofs. Rehearsals more than 50 miles from Horseheads, NY will be priced slightly higher. Let’s talk about it.

 

“THE COMPLETE PHOTOARTISTRY ALBUM PACKAGE” $3300

  • Complete Wedding Day photographic coverage by Rick Bacmanski (described in detail earlier in this text).
  • Rick will shoot only one Wedding per day, & I will not be rushing from your event because I have to shoot another.
  • To be best prepared, I will attend your Wedding rehearsal, unless I am committed to photograph another wedding on that same day. If I am unable to attend the Rehearsal and Dinner, you may deduct $300 from my Package Price. If invited to the rehearsal dinner, I’ll also shoot memories from that fun event for you!
  • Depending upon the size and complexity of your wedding, I estimate that I shoot an average of 3000 or more photographs, from all of your Rehearsal & Wedding day activities. (Described in detail earlier in this text).
  • Photographs will be shot using top of the line Nikon Digital D3s Camera’s providing Hi-Resolution Digital Images. Weddings can also be shot on film if desired by you, for a higher price. Please inquire if this option is of interest to you.
  • Your will receive ONE of either of these two following options:
  • THE PRINT OPTION FOR WEDDINGS TOTALING UP TO 1500 PRINTS ONLY: For weddings with more than 1500 final images, an added charge of $125 for each additional 250 images will apply ($.50 per print). This additional charge is necessary due to greatly increased professional paper and lab costs over the last few years.
  • 1500 of your selected, edited images, as 4” x 6” Professionally Printed Prints, in Fine, Top Quality, Fabric Covered Presentation Boxes. These Presentation Boxes will contain the final, best selection of photographs taken from your Wedding Weekend Shoot. (This option of printing every single image is really great for Scrapbookers too!)

OR

  • THE 24 PAGE/48 SIDES, LEGACY ALBUM OPTION: The 48 Page Legacy Album Upgrade, as described in more detail below, which will contain 24 pages, with 48 mounts (sides) to hold 48 of your personally selected, favorite 8″ x 10″ Photographs from your Wedding Weekend.
  • You will also receive Digital DVD’s containing all of the FULL SIZE image files shot. This will allow you to print them, e-mail them, or show them and view them on your home or workplace computer.
  • OPTIONAL: Additional Digital DVD sets will be available for purchase as gifts for Wedding attendants, relatives etc. for the price of $150 a set. Purchase 3 or more sets and the price drops to $100 a set.
  • $1000 deposit is due at the time of booking. $750 more prior to Wedding Date, with remaining balance due upon receipt of finished photographs & DVD’s.
  • For Weddings outside of the immediate Elmira, Horseheads, Corning, and Ithaca, New York area additional travel charges, as well as lodging (in most cases) will be added to my standard pricing.
  • Additional $$ charges for some selected areas:
    • Binghamton, NY…… $150
    • Syracuse, NY………. $300

Additional Complete Sets of up to Qty. of 2500 Wedding Day Prints

$850

  • Should you desire or require additional sets of 4” x 6” prints, for Parents, Relatives or Friends, and additional complete set can be ordered and printed at the same time your original set of prints is processed, at a cost of $850.
  • Just into the 2014 Wedding Season I have been averaging 2500+ prints per Wedding. Having an extra set or two saves you a lot of work in that you don’t have to go through all of the entire Wedding photographs later, and pick and chose each print, find and select the digital files, take them to the lab, then pay much higher individual re-print prices.
  • If additional sets of prints are desired, I will need to know this fact before we depart the Wedding Day events, because your processing and printing usually begins within a day or two after your Wedding.
