Welcome to Thera VanDerveer Photography and thank you so much for inquiring. Below you will find some information regarding the packages and options available. These prices are valid for contracts signed on or before December 31, 2018 and may change after that date. Dates are not officially booked until a signed contract and retainer is received. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the process. I try to be as detailed as possible, but I'm only human ;-)
All of the packages located HERE include:
<3 An engagement session so you and your fiancé can get comfy in front of the camera and we can get used to working together. This will make your wedding day portraits a breeze. You can use the images from this session for your announcements, save-the-dates, invitations, to decorate your venue, or any other personal use. This session can take place during your favorite season at a location that is meaningful, or maybe not meaningful but beautiful.
<3 Two photographers on your wedding day. Typically the day begins with me (Thera) at the location the Bride is getting ready, and my associate photographer at the location the Groom is getting ready. The second photographer shoots different angles during all parts of the day as well as assists with Family Formals (which is often a lot like herding cats- hehe), gets candid shots while I am directing portraits, and is generally getting shots I would otherwise not be able to get. I cannot be in two places at once of course.
<3 An online gallery of edited images to share with friends & family as well as to download and print as soon as they are ready. I deliver all images after getting rid of the blinks, blurs, test shots, duplicates, and otherwise subpar images (think about the worst double chin shot of yourself you wish you had never seen- those are what I get rid of). There is no limit or minimum amount of photos delivered for your wedding day. I tell your story in however many images it takes. A good estimate would be between 50 & 100 images per shooting hour. Engagement photos are typically delivered within two weeks, wedding photos shot between January & August are typically delivered within one month, and wedding photos shot at the peak of wedding season (September- December) are typically delivered within six weeks. If you would like to see a few full galleries, don't hesitate to ask.
<3 A custom designed USB Drive & Display box. This is a keepsake item which I will design with your unique personalities or preferences in mind. I have designed them with everything from a monogram to a Snitch (Harry Potter reference in case you don't know- I had to look it up also), to a winter tree on the top of the box. The possibilities are endless. I will design and order yours prior to your wedding day so I can photograph it on your big day. View the options for this item HERE. View a few sample designs at the bottom of the page HERE.
<3 A custom designed photo album. These albums are available in genuine leather or quality linen in multiple colors. The albums are not like the slip in albums from the 90's, these are actual books with your photos printed onto the high quality rigid pages. I begin the design of your album after I have delivered your image via your online gallery. View the options for these albums HERE. View a sample album HERE.
I typically blog and/or share images from each wedding I shoot, but I have no problem not sharing if there are privacy concerns, just be sure to let me know.
I look forward to working with you!
