Some Quick Thoughts on Wedding Photography Pricing...
Our philosophy on pricing is this... we don't try to compete with other photographers by setting our prices lower. Instead, we try to compete by setting our quality as high as possible. We believe that although we've all been trained to seek out the bargains, a wedding is one time in life when you should feel free to go against that training and seek out the absolute best instead.
Here's a test to see if you agree.... does your wedding ring have a real diamond or a Cubic Zirconium stone? Our goal is to produce outstanding images that both LMP and you will be delighted to display on our walls and in our albums. We strive to be creative with each of our images and always on the cutting edge of new technology in the photographic world. We like to get back from every single wedding we do with a set of images that are different and more beautiful than anything we've ever done before. If you agree that those are important values, then we would love to work with you.

Why is photography so expensive?
It’s true that you will invest a good portion of your budget to get good photography. To put it in perspective with your other wedding expenses, photography generally will account for roughly 15-20% of your total wedding budget. That money seems well spent when you consider that, other than your rings and maybe your
wedding gown, your photographs are the only tangible thing you will be able to keep as a visual reminder of your wedding in the years to come. If you've ever looked through old albums of pictures from your childhood, you may realize that the memories you have of your childhood are actually somehow tied to the pictures. For example, you probably have many pictures where you can't remember anything else that happened during that day or even that month, but because you've looked at that picture many times over the years, the events immediately surrounding it are somehow burned into your memory. I can't explain how it works, but I do believe that photographs help us to store memories in a way that makes them last for the rest of our lives.
Because photography is so important to most of our clients, we have many couples who choose to 'skimp' in other areas of their wedding in order to be able to properly invest in quality photography from a photographer they know they'll love to work with. We also have couples ask for gift certificates to LMP from family and friends so that, instead of receiving another fondue pot, they canput this money toward the photography of their dreams.




The different prices each photographer charges are usually indicative of the geographic location and the experience and or the quality of work each photographer can produce. However, more experience does not always indicate a higher quality and there are thousands of photographers out there that have been working for 20 years or more and are still producing mediocre results that cannot begin to compete with the artistic quality of some of their less-experienced peers.
LMP’s photographic service prices are in the same range as quality photographers in the Atlanta market.
The simple truth is this...Photography is like everything else in this world... You get what you pay for!
Keep in mind that, in commissioning the srtistic services of LMP, you aren't paying for simply our shoot time and your prints. We spend countless hours with each wedding after the big day creating beautifully-retouched, artistically-designed prints and albums. In addition, our wedding photography is priced around our high-quality equipment and products as well as our experience. In addition, we pride ourselves on our fine-quality materials that make up all of our presentations. We will not use cheap materials that will easily damage or fall apart. We put a great deal of attention and pride into our work and wish to provide you with albums, prints, and framing that you will be proud to show off to your friends and family for many years to come!



At LMP, we offer a-la-carte pricing as our main option for wedding packaging, with which you have the option to mix and match to create a unique package to perfectly suit your individual needs. In creating your package, please be sure to include the basics first (hourly coverage and proofing style), as well as your preferred album style and any additional elements you’d like.

----Hourly Coverage----
Our ‘hourly coverage’ is, essentially, our base fee with which to start your package. It includes the actual shooting coverage of your event, local travel and set-up at one location, an assistant for larger weddings, and general editing through images. Coverage begins after set-up from the time we begin to shoot.
The hourly coverage right for you depends upon the size of your wedding and which memories you wish to have included in your album and loose prints.
Please keep in mind any time you may wish for: getting ready shots, pre-ceremony formal shots, ceremony, post-ceremony formal shots (with family, bridal party, and the bride/groom alone), and reception shots (including arrival, cake, garter/bouquet, dances, toasts, and send-off).
Please add $10. per mile for multiple locations.
Up to 1 hour: $300.
Up to 2 hours: $500.
Up to 3 hours: $600.
Up to 4 hours: $700.
Up to 5 hours: $800.
Up to 6 hours: $900.
Up to 7 hours: $1000.
Up to 8 hours: $1100.
Unlimited all-day coverage up to 3 locations within 10-mile radius: $2200.
----The Bridal Portrait----
You’ve spent months picking out the perfect dress, thinking of exactly how you’ll wear your hair with it, and what jewelry would suit it best. With a separate bridal portrait prior to the big day, you’re able to calmly sit for a portrait without the pressures of the wedding or of your guests seeing you in your gown before the ceremony, in addition to being able to have a trial run of your hair and make-up at the same time. Chances are, your mother had one, your sister had one, and your grandmother did, too: the bridal portrait is a long-standing tradition. On the same note, today’s bridal portraits can be all but traditional in style. At LMP, we love to create not only the traditional-style bridal portraits that are elegant, timeless, and classic,
but also our sophisticated editorial-style studio portraits which we set up and light as we do with our models to make you look like you’ve come straight out of a magazine.
(Includes indoor or outdoor studio sitting, editing through your images, web proofing of images, retouching and conversions on your printed images, and a print credit toward your Bridal Portrait prints of $100.)
Your bridal portraits can be included into your wedding album at no extra charge.

Let us create a beautifully-sentimental framed wall print of your favorite bridal portrait

----The Engagement Portrait----

Our fine-art black & white studio portraits are always a favorite. Or, if you prefer an outdoor portrait, come to our outdoor studio or one of the local resorts The Engagement Portrait is a chance to sit down with your fiancée for a casual, fun portrait. Engagement Portraits are great for our for save-the-date cards, our wallet print favors with weblink information, newspaper announcements, or even for your wedding invitations…let us capture your love at this precious time while you rejoice in the excitement of your upcoming wedding.

----Our Digitally-Designed Albums----
Our Digital Albums are our signature. The latest in image presentation, our albums are perfect for truly telling the story of your wedding day and preserving your special memories. With our magazine-style designed albums, no matting is required of the images. Instead, we are able to incorporate as many as 50 images per two-page spread with backgrounds (of images like your flowers, your venue, your rings, etc.) and colors drawn from the images themselves. We custom design each album with your individual photographs in mind,
using our artistic expertise to make your album a truly unique work of art.
Image numbers within the books are determined based on
what graphically and artistically works best for each page spread set in addition to
which images best tell the story of your special day. Image numbers increase with the number of pages in the album.
Although (as we’re proud to note) we are rarely asked to make changes to our design, we are glad to offer you up to three included photo swaps or changes with your design, and you may continue to change your design after that until your heart’s content at $15. per swap and $60. per spread redesign.
Our nearly-seamless flushmount leather album has a tiny crease in the middle of the page, and the book lays flat when open. These books are beautifully hand-crafted of the finest leather in your choice of colors, sizes, and styles with a very upscale look. Each of the archival pages are made of hard art board with black gilded edges to resist wear and tear over the years. Our digital albums can also be engraved with your names and wedding date as well as embossed with your favorite image on the cover at no extra charge to you. Also included is a soft ‘pillow’ protective cover to protect your beautiful investment.
Our one-of-a-kind digitally-designed albums are an extremely impressive presentation of your most treasured images.
We offer our digital albums in a tier of design and retouching options…

Design Level Two:
With the second level of design, we begin to introduce hand-colored images , and we also begin to integrate more graphic elements and artistic effects. 10 sides will have our full design with background images, text option, etc., and the other 10 sides will have one to three images per page with black or white backgrounds, as with design level one.
Design Level Three:
With the third level of design, we integrate all elements of level two
in addition to special effects such as soft-focusing, skin softening, and fogs,
as well as the addition of being an album full of background images, text,
and a more-intensive level of retouching throughout.

Then, after your wedding, we send you a 5x7 print of each group guest portrait. Great for sending out with your thank you notes as a special gift for your guests. ($5. Per invited guest.)

----The Signature Mat----
Our well-wish signing boards (typically called signature mats) are a beautiful keepsake to display in your home in remembrance of your special day. Using an image from your engagement portraits or bridal portraits, our signing boards include signature-quality premium double matting in gallery style around a retouched print of your choice. We then frame the matted image in your choice of custom framing.
An impressive display of yourselves at your wedding and a unique, beautiful piece of art to hang in your home.
Best of all, we bring the easel for display, the archival art pens (that will not bleed or fade over time), as well as the framed print. We display the image for signing with our sign designating its purpose, and we then disassemble it and take it back to the studio with us for assembling with glass, wiring for hanging, and papering the back to prevent dust and damage from touching your treasured keepsake.
You needn’t worry about dealing with it any step of the way.
