WV Wedding Photographer

Once the ceremony, the dancing and the celebrating are done...

...the cake has been eaten, toasts made and the grand exit is over...

Your wedding photos are what you have left

to bring your day back to you, to let you live through the joy of it over and over again.

I know you have a long list of vendors and artisans to find, purchases to make, and tasks to manage for your wedding. My first step toward making your wedding preparations flow smoothly is to make my wedding pricing transparent, straight-forward, and easy to understand.

"What are the advantages to booking with Laura Priestley Photography?"

The following benefits are all part of the package when you book with me:

Complimentary planning consultation (in-person, via video call, or on the phone, according to your preference)

Complimentary Expert Timeline Assistance (when should hair and makeup arrive? how long do you need for family portraits after the ceremony? I help with all these decisions!)

Complimentary Engagement Portrait Session (Get to know your photographer and feel comfortable with me, so I can show up as a trusted friend on the wedding day.)

Wedding-day photography coverage with Lead Photographer and an Expert Day-Of Coordinator, (or two photographers and a Day-Of Coordinator, depending on your chosen package)

Professional processing and hand-editing of all your keeper images after your big day

Delivery of all your beautiful, high-res digital images in a beautiful, easy-to-use online gallery

My pro lab can create stunning archival-quality prints, enlargements, albums, cards, and wall art from the digital images in your gallery after the fact. No physical products are included in my flat rate wedding photography services.
