How HCP's Custom Pricing Works

    High Contrast Photography's services are charged at $325.00 per hour. This rate includes:

  • Two photographers on the wedding day
  • Your final edited images hosted in an online hosting gallery
  • A crystal flash drive of your final edited images, with a print release

 Most weddings book for between 6-10 hours of coverage. 


2) Do you need an engagement session?

    An engagement portrait session is an excellent way to get practice in front of the camera so you're a pro by your wedding day! Engagement portraits can be used for:

  • Save the dates
  • Invitations
  • Wedding decor
  • Or simply to just have displayed in your home!

 An engagement session is free with any wedding package of 8 hours or more.


3) What kind of albums would you like?

    High Contrast Photography offers custom designed luxury albums in a variety of styles:

  • Albums come in sizes of either 10x10 (80 images) or 12x12 (90 images)
  • A discount is offered on your album when it is packaged into your wedding contract
  • Parent albums are also available, which are excellent holiday gifts or wedding keepsakes

 Approximately 70% of High Contrast Photography's couples purchase at least one album.
