Preparing for your Event

Charges cover photographing the event, post-editing time, and all reproduction rights for all the images. Sales tax will be added.

1-hour coverage and all edited
high-res JPEGS is $300
Each additional hour is $200 including all edited, high-res JPEGS and copyright releases

We do birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, confirmations, family reunions, and special gatherings.

When scheduling, let Jan know if there are groups of people that she needs to photograph. Provide a list and a knowledgeable person to help identify the group at the time of the event. For event photography, we take unlimited photos, largely determined by the length of the event, the number of events, and any special moments that occur during the party. In the end, you receive all reproduction rights for all of the images provided. Post-editing and processing can take hours – sometimes even days depending on how large the event was and how many people attended. All images will then be shared on a flash drive for easy storage. Please allow up to five days after an event for us to get the photos to you!

Since every event is unique, it is best to call and discuss event plans and specific needs for an actual quote.
