Sarah Shearer Presents: Preserving Memories | Wedding Info and Pricing

We believe wedding photography is an art. Seeing everything without being seen...being everywhere without being felt... creatively capturing all the memorable moments of a wedding day... that's what makes wedding photography an art.
Photography is our love and our career.
When you open a really amazing wedding magazine spread what knocks you off your socks... The real images of that specific wedding day: the details, family emotions, wonderful guests interactions and of course the couple in their most beautiful moments. 
We’re here to perfectly document your stunning wedding day, to help you and your family remember everything that happens on your special day that will help define the rest of your lives together.

Should you opt for this, we would schedule a chat or a meeting based around your schedule over the next few days. We can meet at your desired location. I know that weddings are time consuming and each minute is valuable so if you choose to just talk via email or messages that is completely fine as well.
This meeting is more to determine that our personalities are a good fit! It’s so important to mesh with your photographer and have great chemistry! 
Once we have you on our calendar for your wedding, we’ll begin planning your engagement session and/or bridal session dates and locations. 
Getting married is such an exciting time in your life and these sessions are the perfect way not only to document it, but it allows us the opportunity to get to know each other a little better. Learn how we each work and get comfortable before your wedding.
Now, your big day is here! My assistant and I will arrive and begin walking through the venue – taking detail shots where we can and begin setting up in the reception area. We’ll shoot your wedding from you getting ready to your final exit. There will probably be tears during your first look.. your vows.. and maybe during the reception.
Once your images are ready, the process is much like your portrait sessions.We’ll post your teasers, blog your images, upload the images to an online gallery to share with your friends and family and contact you to send your images and begin designing your album!
It’s a fun and seamless process. Our goal is to make your wedding planning experience more enjoyable and turn your moments into tangible memories!
How long does it take to get our images?
Online galleries and digital files are ready within 4 weeks of the wedding date. Upon final approval of album designs most albums are ready for delivery within 6 weeks.
How many images will we get?
The number of photographs taken depends on many things – the number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events.  From a typical 10 hour wedding you should expect no less then 500 images, but usually the number is much higher.
Do you come to the rehearsal?
Rehearsal dinner coverage is available if you’d like to add it to your collection, otherwise we do not attend the rehearsals.
Can you hold the date for me?
Sorry, unfortunately we can not  hold the date or pencil you in. To be fair to everyone we can’t “hold” a date without a retainer and a signed contract.  
Do you refund deposits on cancellations?
No. The retainer fee is non-refundable. The retainer guarantees that we will hold the date exclusively for you and once you’ve signed the contract we do turn down all other commissions for that date.
We’re ready to book, what’s next?
Great!  When ever you’re ready, we require a signed contract and a retainer fee of $500  The remaining balance is due 1 week before your wedding date.  A signed contract is required in order to book the date.
