How to get started
It is understandable that making the first contact with vendors can be stressful. I am here to answer your questions and even help you figure out what those questions are. Don't expect me to try yo upsell you to a more expensive package. Just send me a message through my contact page with some information about your plans. I can check your date for availability and we can see if I would be a good fit for you. After you ask me to photograph your wedding, I'll send an agreement that spells out the details. The completed and returned agreement with the $400 retainer reserves your date. The retainer is part of the total listed for each package and not an addition to the prices shown. The balance is due by one week before your wedding. You can pay a little at a time or all at once. I accept checks and Venmo. Note that the state of KY will begin charging 6% sales tax on photography services on 1/1/2023 and any amounts you pay after that will incur tax.
Add video service for $200/hr with a 4 hour minimum*
* I typically deliver over 700 digital images from 10 hours of coverage with the actual amount depending on the people, venue, and schedule involved. Wedding clients receive two USB drives with identical files and permission to make an unlimited number of copies and prints from the digital images for non-commercial use. I can also provide prints, photobooks, and albums for an additional charge.
Client references are available on request. They can speak better for me than I can for myself. My clients can really tell you about how satisfied they were working with me and results that produced. There are some reviews under the "Reviews" tab here on my website. You can find more around the internet with a quick Google search for "Mark E Photography reviews". Be sure to visit my Contact Page and request access to several full wedding day galleries to get a better understanding of what you can expect in your wedding photography. There are thousands of photos there to see.
* I have partnered with Caitlin Worth of Steeped In Fairy Tales for videography. Her style of editing and telling the personal story of your wedding day goes well with my photography. Video services are available at $200/hour with a 4 hour minimum.
