Offering my photographic services, my creativity and my passion to fully capture your day…moment by moment
Doing Things A little Differently
My style is to shoot your whole wedding day. Usually meeting with the bride around 10am for prep and staying until the party switches gears at 10pm or so.
I work closely with couples in order to properly re-tell the story of the wedding day while keeping the process as smooth as possible and delivering timeless images.
Pricing is kept simple with no packages or time blocks for a solo shooter.
My reasonable rates include no additional travel fee within Ottawa.
My Creative Process
Offering a fun and unique approach to wedding photography.
My style is a mixture of journalistic and classical approach where the story of the day is the key. I use the skills honed through years of commercial, landscape, product, portrait and party photography to best capture the details of your day. I play an active and outgoing role, I don’t hide in the shadows and do not mind giving out direction when it means a better photo.
All my delivered images are processed to professional standards. I edit each individual wedding in a unique way based on colour theme, setting as well as time of year. These factors all play an important role in the look and feel of the days images. My approach is realistic, I remove blemishes, stray hairs or other temporary imperfections, but nothing overly drastic.
I like to get to know the people that I work with… It only makes sense to get along with your photographer considering how close we will be with throughout the day. I like to meet my clients 2 or 3 times over coffee or beer before the big day so we can talk out ideas and plan some shots, this goes a long way to keeping things smooth and relaxed.
I take this gig pretty seriously, I understand what an honour it is to participate in such a major life event and I make sure that my attitude reflects that. From initial contact to final product delivery you can be assured that I will always reply promptly and carry myself in a professional manner. I carry backups of everything and come prepared to every shoot.
Full Day Coverage
I’m not a fan of offering tier pricing or prices based on how long you want me there for. When it comes to weddings it makes sense to tell the whole story. I don’t plan on doing anything else on your wedding day so if you’re game for cool evening shots I am too! My reasonable rates include full day coverage for every wedding I shoot.
Details & Services
Working prepared makes things much smoother day of. I like to scout locations in advance, so the more I know about your wedding plan, the better prepared I can me. If I know the approximate time of day events take place then I can plan for lighting and locations beforehand. I shoot with a range of Canon gear including several bodies, a selection of prime lenses, portable flash heads, triggers and CF cards. I always have a selection of useful items including tape, tripods, umbrella, etc. I like to shoot minimally so I do not carry large light-boxes or stands. I use some off camera lighting but my approach allows me to move quickly and capture the detail of the day as efficiently as possible. Click on the question boxes below for additional information …
My pricing for wedding day coverage includes full day shooting (bridal prep til 10pm), 400+ professionally processed images delivered on USB in JPEG format. Both packages include a no charge 1 hour “save the date” or engagement shoot.
Full Day Package (bridal prep until 10pm) – $2000 Tax Inc.
I’m happy to follow the wedding party wherever you decide to go! Multiple locations within the city are no problem, no additional travel time or mileage will be added.
I provide photograph-only coverage for the day. Preparation, ceremony, reception and party until 10pm are all covered. I provide all gear necessary and ensure back-up camera and gear are on site for consistent coverage. I shoot in raw and process all images with Lightroom / Photoshop. Full backups of your shoot are maintained after the event in case you lose or delete images.
I require a deposit upon validation and signing of my contract. My minimum deposit is $400. The balance of your payment is required upon delivery of final, completed product.
Once the wedding is finished the second part of my job begins. I now sort through to cull, refine, edit and process the images shot throughout the day. Expect to see a couple teaser shots posted within 24 hours. The remainder of your polished images (400+) will be ready for delivery 3-4 weeks after your wedding day.
I provide my clients with a USB stick containing two folders. One folder contains full resolution JPEG images as a hand selected, photographic re-telling of your day. The second folder containing web-resolution duplicates perfect for sharing on social media or through e-mail. You can expect 400+ unique images.
In my experience most customers no longer require physical albums and prefer to manage this process themselves. However if this is something you wish to have included we can discuss pricing above and beyond my coverage and digital delivery.
The image copies provided are the Bride and Groom’s. These copies may be freely distributed amongst family and friends. These image copies may not be re-sold in any way, or entered into competition, etc. The original RAW images remain under Richard Webster (RePicture) copyright. My contract states that I may use these images for competition, exhibition and promotion or financial gain.
