Wedding Photography Pricing
Metro Detroit Area

8 Hours Coverage

$2,900 - One photographer - Me! Great for couples who have ceremonies starting after 2:00 ish. This meets 90% of my clients needs.

10 Hours Coverage

$3,300 - One photographer - Me! Perfect for couples with a noon or 1 pm ceremony start time or have a really late dinner planned. This one offers a bit of breathing room in the schedule.

Add A Second Photographer

+ $1,000 - Add in a second full time, seasoned professional photographer to either of the top two packages. None of the images you see on my website are from weddings with a second photographer. I photograph 99% of my weddings solo.

Why is 8 hours the most popular? 90% of weddings do take at least 8 hours if you're looking for coverage of a bit of getting ready, the ceremony, portraits and you're having dancing and/or some activities planned after a meal. I do offer shorter hours, but that only works if you're planning a wedding without a reception, which is pretty rare. If you're not sure which package suits you and you don't want to overpay (who does?!), let me know your ceremony time, the time they are serving dinner and if you're having a "First Look" to knock stress levels down and get the majority of the posed pictures out of the way. That way I can give you a really good ballpark of which package is best for your needs.

Having a Shorter Wedding?

6 Hours

$2,500 for 6 hours of continuous coverage with one photographer. This package works for clients who are in one location, aren't having a first look and don't want much coverage of themselves getting ready.

4 Hours

$2,000 for 4 hours of continuous coverage with one photographer. This package works for clients who are in one location and aren't having a typical reception with dancing.

2 Hours

$1,500 for 2 hours of continuous coverage with one photographer. This is enough time for a ceremony and some family photos. Only available M-TH or within a month of the wedding if on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

Looking for shorter, smaller packages? I'm happy to work with you. The photographer for your wedding will be either myself or my photography partner and fellow photojournalist, Rodney Curtis. If you are booking my regular, 8 or more hour wedding package (which really and truly is what 90% of clients who want coverage of a bit of getting ready and have a dinner and dancing planned really and truly need at least 8 hours), you are specifically reserving ME for the day and I will be your photographer. But of course, feel free to hire Rodney to photograph your full day instead of me. He's AWESOME! Travel fees will apply for any weddings further than a 20 minute drive from Troy!

Having a Michigan "Destination" Wedding?

8 Hours

$4,000 for up to 8 hours of continuous coverage with one photographer. Printing and download rights of edited, high resolution digital files included. I will pick up travel fees.

10 Hours

$4,500 for up to 10 hours of continuous coverage with one photographer. Printing and download rights of edited, high resolution digital files included. I will pick up travel fees.

12 Hours

$5,000 for up to 12 of continuous coverage with one photographer. Printing and download rights of edited, high resolution digital files included. Can be split over 2 days. Travel fees included.

Having a wedding up North or on Lake Michigan or more than 2 hours from Troy? I am happy to travel around "troll country". Why are the fees higher than the "regular" packages? Let's say your wedding is a 3 hour drive from Troy and you have an 8 hour wedding, that's a 14 hour day for me. I will need to get a hotel coming and going so I'm not pooped for your wedding. It also means it is more challenging to book weddings back to back, so it effectively limits the number of weddings I can photograph on the weekend of your wedding. But I also LOVE beautiful settings, so here I am. I can't offer a second photographer at this time, but that shouldn't be an issue since I photograph almost all of my weddings by myself anyways.

Add-Ons, Bells and Whistles …

Wedding Albums

$1000 for either one large 14x11 inch flush mount album with 40 sides or one large 14x11 inch lay flat album with two smaller (11x8.5) identical parent albums. These are hand designed to your taste and the material alone are quite expensive. I'm happy to point you in the direction of fun DIY albums if you'd prefer.

Engagement Photos

$350 for a one hour session with my booked wedding clients. My couples tell me this is a great way to meet me, get to know each other and learn to speak Marci fluently. You'll be amazed how great you look! Please check my portrait section for locations.

Add An Extra Hour

$400/hr. for any of my wedding clients needing an extra hour of coverage. This can be added on the day of the wedding if need be.
