Photography is one of the few lasting souvenirs you will have from your big day, but it is the last thing you should have to worry about during the hustle and bustle! 


You should feel comfortable with your photographer's ability and reliability.  With over 15 years of experience, and a love of my work, I will help you have a you a worry-free day, a beautiful product, and all the attention you need before and after! 

I also believe you should like your photographer; so let's meet!  I want you to be excited! 

My pricing is transparent and up-front.  I take only one wedding client a month in order that I might give each client all of my attention.

I am happy to chat about the schedule for your day and how we might be most budget aware.  Sometimes an 8 hour shooting day is not necessary.  I love doing 1-hour City Hall shoots as well as destination, multi-day events.


Partial Day Services

2 to 6 hours includes:

  • A pre-event consultation to understand your hopes and expectations for your event, and the details of your day (I am available for any additional questions any time)

  • Editorial coverage on the day of your event, including posed portraits, detail and & setting shots

  • A combination of color, black and white an, sepia, high resolution, 35mm format  original jpgs (typically 50+ images per hour of shooting)

  • Editing and processing of your images- I aim to deliver within four weeks of your event, but usually it is closer to two weeks

  • A custom website gallery where you, your friends and family may access your images, order prints and download

  • Private viewing session and a digital presentation of your images

  • 1 hour of custom, post-production editing of up to 20 images for any specific, additional edits you may have

  • Travel time and expenses within a 3 hour radius of Pacifica


...2 hours:  $1100 

   ...4 hours:  $2200   

...6 hours: $3300

Full Day Service​                                                                     ...$4400

8 hours plus includes: same as partial day, plus:

  •  2 hours of custom, post-production editing of up to 30 images

  •  An online, sharable slideshow of your day

  • Hard cover, custom presentation coffee table book 



After an event, it is always a great pleasure to invite you to my studio for a viewing and presentation of your images, with a few celebratory treats!  For full day weddings, you will also be given a custom book to take home with you.



Because many clients prefer to be involved in album design (or make their own), and because delivery dates for albums can vary widely from album producer to another, traditional albums are priced and delivered separately. 


I offer a custom-made, coffee table book for any shoot.  I can provide simple  guidance or design and produce the the whole book. Another option is a hand-bound, linen album from Cypress Albums. However, should you choose a different album, I am more than happy to help find album providers and materials to fit any style and budget, and pass them along at no additional cost.

You spend hours thinking, supposing, and planning to make the moment you pop the question as memorable as possible- so don't forget the photographer! With a photographer nearby, hidden away, or sometimes mingling in plain view, you can capture the genuine surprise and emotion of your fiance/e- to- be in a tasteful, unobtrusive way. Then make an album or frame it as a gift...or use it for your wedding invitation.  In any case, it will be something truly special to have for years to come.


On-site shoot, typically 1-4  hours                                                                       ....$375 - $1,500    

  • Mix of color and black and white

  • Online proofing and image access

Destination Weddings

There are several advantages to hiring a photographer close to home for your wedding away:

  • you can choose the photographer of your dreams in person rather than using the choice of your venue,

  • you can meet in person to plan your event and establish a trusting relationship before the big day,

  • you can use your photographer for engagement photos,

  • you can have peace of mind about photography so you can enjoy your day

  • it will make also make viewing of your images and album creation much more convenient and fun once you are home from your trip!


Because Destination Services do require additional funds for airfare, accomodations, and transportation for Jody, and often require travel of three or more days, please call to schedule an appointment to discuss logistics and fees. Thank you!
