About the Book
Wedding Promotion Book. Excellent work, affordably priced, unobtrusively performed by a consummate professional - what more could you ask?
"Frank has the training of a fine-art photographer with the instincts and timing of a photojournalist."
In the last 20 years, in addition to my photography teaching and fine art career, I have photographed literally hundreds of weddings. These days, anyone with a camera can call themselves a wedding photographer. What counts is experience. What counts is results.
I can do any of the traditional posed shots you may require, and I pride myself in doing them as quickly and as painlessly as possible. Typically, weddings tend to follow a pattern. I look for what makes yours unique. I've gotten countless referrals simply because my candid shots are done as unobtrusively as possible yet capture the spontaneity and spirit of the occasion. Couples frequently tell me they don't even remember me taking the photographs. I consider this the highest compliment. My easy-going manner and well-honed people skills have been known to ameliorate many a stressful situation.
Ultimately, I take my responsibility very seriously. Being trusted to photograph your wedding is an honor and a privilege. I look forward to working with you. That being said...
I charge couples $1,500 for up to 6 hours of coverage. If you think you might need me longer, I'm available at an additional $75 per hour. You'll receive a DVD with all files, expertly processed and color corrected, ready for printing at your convenience, as well as a proof book of all images. All images will also be posted to an online gallery for viewing by you, your family, and your friends. For your convenience, prints may be ordered from the online gallery as well. Engagement sessions are $250 and traditional leather bound "heirloom albums" are also available for an additional charge.
That's it... no hidden costs. All that, and I'm a heck of a nice guy, too.
