Basic wedding coverage starts at $2800 and includes:

  • Up to 9 hours wedding coverage by Ieva Sireikyte
  • Unlimited locations, unlimited photographs taken
  • All full-size JPG files on DVD or USB
  • Development and corrections of your photographs
  • 1 16x20in and 2 12x18in retouched to perfection wall prints

You will receive not watermarked, high quality, full-size JPG format files on DVD or USB/HD (provided by the client). All photographs you receive will undergo editing in Lightroom: color and exposure correction, perspective fixing and cropping, if necessary. Extensive skin retouching in Photoshop is done to selected 100-150 images that usually are close-ups or bridal portraits. Pictures from further away usually do not require extensive Photoshop intervention and come out perfect after developing them in Lightroom.

When there are multiple takes of the same portrait or scene, I usually only choose one to retouch since they are almost identical, but include all others with the rest of the photographs. Just in case you like yourself better from a slightly different angle. I only remove totally unsuccessful images like out of focus, flash did not fire or somebody accidentally walked in front of the camera type.

Right after the editing is done, I usually compose a blog post about your wedding day so you can immediately see some photos and share them with your friends and family on social media.

Extra coverage can be added if available on the actual day of the wedding at the rate of $200/h unless specified otherwise in the contract.

Second Photographer is always a useful addition to your wedding day capture. Two of three couples usually ask me if I think they need it. And here is my answer: Second photographer has an ability to be in different place from me at the same time – this is the best advantage of having 2 photographers!

Be it the groom’s preparations (and I am not talking just about false-fixing the tie in the mirror before the ceremony);

Cocktail room details (while I am still working on family portraits because one side of the family were late to arrive);

Those beautiful super wide balcony shots of the the ceremony while the bride is walking down the isle or dance floor during the first dance;

Possibility to divide a 20-people bridal party in half to do photos quicker on a super-hot and humid July afternoon;

Each set of parents wants to do an extended 40min photo session with their friends and co-workers while the bridal party is going wild on the dance floor;

And the list of pros can go on and on.

So do you really need it? I would say just weight all those pros towards the only (but very important) con – increase in price of your wedding photography.

The rate for a second photographer is $850 for up to 12hours or until primary photographer is staying, whichever ends sooner, unless specified otherwise in the contract.

Wedding Collections: Coverage + Albums

With so many styles emerging nowadays the only way out to match your needs is to offer distinctive style wedding albums that are designed just for you using no templates and no outsourcing.

From traditional hand crafted Photo Albums with solid thick pages for extensive durability to Fine Art Albums printed on museum quality paper with vibrant and vivid archival inks. Every Designer album is composed specifically for you, telling the story about your wedding day.

20 spread (40page) Album can fit around 75-100 photos, 25 spread – 125 photos, 30 spread – 160 photos and so on.

For album design samples please refer to my Blog -> Categories -> Albums.

While I try to do my best to describe and show Album options here online, it’s always a good idea to take a look at them live, at my office, located in midtown Manhattan. Contact me to set up the meeting.

Please, note that Wedding Collections listed below are very customizable, should you need to remove or add something to suite your needs.

Photo Album has evolved through the years way beyond just a photo book with leather cover. The choice of format options, papers, covers and coordinated accessories are very extensive. These options are perfect to produce your own unique book tailored towards meeting your specific needs.

Indian Weddings usually run longer than regular 9-12h coverage, thus requiring longer hours on wedding day and extra coverage for the events leading to the wedding like Mehndi or Sangeet.
To accommodate that, I offer discounted rate of $150/h for extra coverage on wedding day and same $150/h rate for other day events with minimum of 3 continuous hours, meaning coverage cannot be split to morning and night ceremonies on the same day, unless agreed otherwise.

Engagement or Bridal (Day-after) Session
What if you want your mad love documented before the wedding for save-the-date or the display at the wedding reception or just for your facebook profile? Maybe even display in the screen show if your venue has screen and projector or DJ service comes with 2 flat screens?

And what about you really wanted to do bridal portraits the heart of NYC, but your wedding timeframe did not allow 5 extra hours for traffic, parking, getting around on feet in busy Manhattan? Or maybe you wanted to run barefoot on the beach with your wedding dress feeling salty water under your feet, but you had to keep you dress neat for the reception?

Well, who says you can’t have it all!

Before and after sessions are priced at the rate of $150/h with 2 h minimum in the city (includes Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Bronx) and 3 hour minimum outside.

  • Session coverage by Ieva Sireikyte
  • All full-size JPG files on DVD or USB
  • Development and corrections of your photographs
