we realize that not everyone can afford ‘high-end’ wedding photography
but that doesn’t mean that people shouldn’t deserve it.
after all, ‘high-end’ is awfully relative
and it’s our opinion that the more expensive a photographer costs
doesn’t necessarily equate to the quality of the person’s work.
it’s all just perceived value
and we’d like to offer an alternative.
we remember what it was like not being able to afford rent
and making just enough to get by.
if this is you, conventional wisdom would inform you not to get married until you were financially stable.
well, if you happen to be among the group of lovebirds that can’t wait for conventional wisdom to get with it
then we’re here to help you.
getting married on a very tight budget or none at all?
let’s make something work shall we?
this is what would equate to free wedding photography.
basically, we shoot for free, no premiums are charged, and you get all the images we take on a DVD.
all we ask is to cover whatever travel expenses we might incur along the way.
we also offer a majorly discounted pricelist for you guys too with all proceeds going to charity.
if you would like to book a RENT wedding just shoot us an email with “RENTwedding” in the subject line.
write us a quick story about why you feel it would be a great blessing to you if we shot your wedding for free,
provide a few references who we could contact
and attach a recent photo of yourself and your significant other.
remember this is only limited to ONCE a year and is very competitive.
(positions have been filled through 2011)
NAME YOUR PRICE.
yep, you read that right.
just because we only shoot one wedding a year entirely for free
doesn’t mean our prices need to be outrageously high for everyone else.
‘but can’t people take advantage of your work with this option?’
yes, so for now this is an experimental pricing method.
after a year we’ll see whether or not it’s been abused.
but for now this is how it works..
to be considered, one of the couple needs to be working at a social service.
so schools, hospitals, warming centers, non profits, etc.
couples are not allowed to contact me directly if they’d like this option.
you have to be referred to by someone who is active in the community along with you.
so a co-worker at a non-profit, a pastor, your student/patient, etc.
this person will write us a letter on your behalf
and we’ll consider whether or not to meet your proposed budget for photography.
the “NYP” package is limited to 6 hours of coverage and a disc of all hi-res digital files.
you are able to add on to the package however according to the current pricing.
acceptance of the couple’s named price will be based on wedding date (time of year), location, and referrals.
pricing under $2000 should come with at least two referrals.
happy wedding planning!
