Weddings


I don't think I'll ever be able to explain the joy and satisfaction I derive from wedding photography. I love the challenges and opportunities every wedding day presents, but most of all, I consider myself truly blessed to have worked with so many amazing brides, grooms, families and friends. I hope that feeling, and new opportunities, never disappear.

I understand how important this day is for you, and my promise to you is that I will do everything in my power to find spectacular wedding photos you'll be able to cherish for a lifetime.

I do not book weddings for just a few hours because I dislike time limits and never schedule more than one wedding on any particular day. I generally start when you arrive at the ceremony site for last minute preparations and end the day around midnight, or whenever I can catch that very special last dance.

In addition to all day wedding day coverage, every Spilker Portraits wedding package includes a high-resolution DVD of all your photos, with copyright release, and an 11x14 print. The DVD of print ready files includes color and light balancing and some touching-up. The 11x14 print, on metallic or lustre paper, includes more touching-up and special effects. Mention this webpage, and I'll include a free engagement session and CD--that's a great way for us to get to know one another before the big day.

Beyond your original package, individual prints may be purchased at Package+ rates. Most couples choose a combination--they print their own 4x6s and order enlargements and tricky edits directly from me.

A two hundred and fifty dollar deposit reserves your wedding day. Another two hundred and fifty dollars is due anytime prior to the wedding, and the balance of your package is due when your DVD is finished--always ready when you return from your honeymoon.

Schedule permitting, I will travel to any location. Within driving distance, mileage is charged at $.75 per mile. For further distances, please inquire about specifics.

I also want everyone to understand that regardless of who writes the check, I work for the bride and groom. Thanks for understanding, Mom. And if there's ever any disagreement between the bride and groom, I work for the bride. Thanks for understanding, guys. And if your wedding happens to have two brides or two grooms--we'll just figure that out as we go.
