How many hours of photography do I need? JM Photography currently offers three collections, 6 hours, 8, hours and 10 hours. All of the collections include engagement sessions and the printing rights to both your engagement and wedding photographs. However, the 10 hour collection also includes a second photographer and a larger wedding album credit.
When deciding on how many hours you need for your wedding day coverage there are a few things you’ll want to to ask yourself. First, do you want some getting ready photos with your bridesmaids and groomsmen? And do you want those epic detail shots of your dress, the shoes, engagment and wedding rings, flowers and so on. If you do, then you’ll probably want to go with the 8 hour collection for sure and possibly the 10 hour collection.
A typical 8 hour wedding collection is going to get you some detail photographs through the first dances.

How do I reserve my wedding date?
The first step is to set up a meeting so we can get to know eachother better. I want to make sure I’ll be a good fit for you and learn what is most important to you on your big day. After that initial meeting you’ll have a contract to go home with. Signing of the contract and sending a deposit of $500 will reserve your wedding date.

JM Photography uses all professional Canon digital equipment including cameras, lenses and lighting. I bring double of everything in case of a technical issue.
What do you include in your editing?
JM Photography includes all basic editing, basic color correction, Black and White tones, cropping and sharpening. Retouching is available, but is not included in the price of wedding packages.
