event photography (concerts/nightlife, weddings, lifestyle, parties)
[event photography, fort collins things, payment options]
Event photography services are provided for between 3 and 12 hours. Payment arrangements can be made, and I do lower the cost when advertising is done on my behalf by the client, or if they assist in promoting business for me. I do not provide event photography for free to businesses, with the exception of limited non-profits. However, I seek these out on my own in most cases, and request that you please do not inquire about free photography services for events unless heavy advertising is provided on my behalf as a trade.
Event photography is due upfront, or with a payment arrangement - at least one payment is due at the time of booking and the second is due within 48 hours of the event. I am able to split payments up into thirds for events lasting 5 hours. For evens lasting 8 or more hours, I can accept up to 4 payments.
Note: I treat wedding photography as events and payment options and requirements are exactly the same.
Event, Lifestyle & Wedding Photography Pricing & Payment Plans
**WEDDINGS BOOKED FOR 5 OR MORE HOURS RECEIVE A FREE ENGAGEMENT SESSION!**
12+ Hours: $200 Per Hour
Twelve or more hours of services may be split into multiple days, and the pricing does not include the cost of travel, room and board if it is needed. This package is commonly used for large scale events, conferences, weddings, seminars and concerts. Package includes both candid and posed pictures.
8 Hours: $1800
Eight hours of shooting is typically one full day of shooting and is often used for weddings if the bride desires photographs that are taken of her getting ready, conferences and other events. An additional fee for traveling is applied if the event is over 50 miles away from Fort Collins, CO and I cover any lodging fees that may come up. Package includes both candid and posed pictures.
5 Hours: $1250
5 hours of shooting is appropriate for smaller events like graduation parties, wedding receptions and smaller weddings with a guest attendance of less than 100 people. This package is frequently used by chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and other professional events as well, and it includes both candid and posed pictures.
3 Hours: $825
Three hours of time is for very short events like Chamber of Commerce ribbon cuttings, headliners at small concerts, luncheons or short dinner parties. This typically only allows for enough time for candid pictures, although occasionally there may be time left over for a few posed images.
