Most of the time we just charge for a hotel room depending on how far away from home we are. If it is somewhere we have to fly, the flights, hotel and travel costs are additional.
I have a very photojournalistic approach and only stage formal photos. Even those are kept as natural as possible unless doing a really edgy epic portrait. I concentrate on making the most of beautiful moments in the most creative way possible. Many of our clients hire us for our personality, comfortability, creativity and editing style.
Most of our weddings are around 10 hours however we offer an intimate package for smaller weddings with no wedding party and less house for a lower price. Average package includes two photographers, 10 hours of coverage and a ton of high-res images that you will be in love with for $4,000.
I use Skype and also have a studio. I prefer to meet on Skype though as we all have super busy lives, it tends to be the most convenient. My Skype name is Karmapants. Go figure :)
I picked up my first camera at 12 years old. I photographed anything and everything. My parents believed I had something...so theyI send me to Philadelphi to Drexel University for a BS in Photography with a minor in Photojournalism. I worked in Manhatton at PDN Magazine for a year before I got knocked up and fell in love with make photographs of my children. Before you knew it friends were asking me to photograph their weddings and families. The rest of the story is just evolution.
