PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGE DETAILS
  • Be sure to browse my wedding gallery for examples of wedding & engagement photos & videos.
  • Every package includes a full copyright release and digital copies of all your photos. That way you have the option of printing them yourself or ordering your prints through RJO. Some wedding photographers sell copyright releases for hundreds of dollars. RJO Photo includes it free of charge.
  • All of these packages include one photographer. A second shooter may be added but may be subject to an additional charge of their own personal rates.
  • I do have a commercial insurance policy with $1 million liability coverage in case it's required by the venue.


Photo Retouching Rates

OUTPUT SIZEPRICE PER IMAGE
Standard-def
(web resolution)
$25
High-def
(print resolution)
$35


PHOTO EDITING DETAILS
  • The main variable which determines retouching cost is the output size. At web resolution (~600x800), less editing work is needed than at higher print resolutions like for large format prints.
  • I also offer freelance retouching. So if you choose to use another photographer for your wedding or engagement session, please keep me in mind for any desired retouching.




"Do you have a combination photo/video package?"

The closest thing I offer to a combination photo/video package is to add videography of the ceremony vows and reception speeches to your photography package. Essentially, I would shoot photography as usual then switch to video for only a couple specific moments that were decided on beforehand. I do not switch back and forth throughout the day.

I would recommend against having one person do both. It's not worth missing out on something and getting a key moment on video when you wish it had been on photo, or vice versa!





"How and when do we pay?"

Once you're ready to book you'll be emailed a contract with a detailed list of all services included in your package, the price agreed upon, and any other important information or add-ons. That contract can be printed, signed, and mailed or digitally signed and emailed back to me. You are welcome to pay the full balance at the time of booking, however a minimum payment of $300 is required and is considered a non-refundable retainer in the event of a cancellation or postponement. This payment is applied to your total amount due. The remaining balance may be paid on or before the day of your wedding.

Payments can be made via cash, check or money order. After a payment is received, you'll be emailed a receipt for your records.

On the day of your wedding, if additional time is needed because of schedule delays, an hourly rate of $150/hr will be used. This on-site payment can be made via cash, check, or credit card.

"Can we get photo prints or albums?"

Yes! Prints of all sizes are available. See this link for a list of print items & their prices.

Because every couple is different, I do not have standard wedding album packages. I believe each album should be unique and suit the couple. If you are interested in ordering it through me, I would be more than happy to do the footwork and answer any questions about the different possibilities for your album. The labs I use do wonderful work and can create something beautiful and unique for you.

"What does the copyright release include?"

Your copyright release can be tailored to suit your needs, but generally it states that all content created during our shoot or modified afterwards becomes your intellectual property. You are the owner and you can use it however, wherever, whenever, and for however long you wish.

Usually I include an optional clause that states that I can display your content on my online portfolios. But this can also be removed from your release if you desire complete privacy.



"Are you insured?"

Yes, RJO Photo is fully covered with a commercial insurance policy against liability and damage. The reason I include this information in my FAQ is that often certain venues require a photographer or videographer to have liability coverage in order for them to photograph on the premises.



"What does the Keepsake DVD/Blu-ray look like?"

Keepsake DVDs for photography have custom graphics and come in a decorative case. Visit MillersLab.com to see sample photos and additional information.

Keepsake DVDs and Blu-Rays for videography have custom graphics and come in a traditional plastic DVD or Blu-Ray case with a decorative insert.




     "We couldn't possibly be any happier with our decision to hire Ryan to be the photographer at our wedding. Ryan was very professional and made everything very easy. He is truly a great photographer, and was always quick to respond every time we had a question, and accommodated every request. On our wedding day he arrived early and stayed as long as we wanted. And the photos he took of our wedding and reception were truly amazing! We would highly recommend him to anyone."
~Steve & Keisha S., [PHOTOGRAPHY 6/15/2013]

     "We really enjoyed working with Ryan before, during and after our wedding day and loved the results he produced. (In fact, we already referred him to another friend of ours.) He was very flexible and catered his services to exactly what we wanted. I was completely at ease on our wedding day knowing he was capturing great shots without needing any direction from me. He knew what we liked, and delivered two great videos that exceeded our expectations."
~Hannah & Andrew P., [VIDEOGRAPHY 9/22/2013]

     "Ryan did a wonderful job with our wedding videography. The footage is fantastic and high quality. He put together a beautiful trailer of our wedding that we absolutely adore. It's super fun to share with our family and friends. Ryan's service was great and very reasonable. He managed to capture our day without feeling intrusive which was perfect. I'm so glad we decided to get the video taken. Thanks Ryan!"
~Dana & Chris P., [PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY 9/1/2012]

     "Ryan is an amazing photographer! All the pix we got back from our wedding were beautiful (not to mention he got them to us in less than 2 weeks!) and I was impressed by how well he captured not only the overall feeling of the day, but our individual personalities in each photo. He has a unique creative style that I have not seen duplicated by any of our friends' wedding photographers. Just the right mix of photojournalism, candids and traditional shots. He tailored our package to exactly what we wanted!"
~Erin & Vince F., [PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY 8/1/2009]

     "Ryan was great to work with. I would say that I was a somewhat "particular" bride and Ryan was very accommodating and never made me feel like I was asking too much. Ryan is very responsive to e-mails and turned around all of our products very quickly. During the wedding and reception, Ryan was always in the right place and I like that he seemed to fade into the background (sometimes wedding photographers are very obvious/distracting at weddings). Ryan is very nice and laid back and easy to work with."
~Michelle & Josh H., [PHOTOGRAPHY 10/2/2010]

     "I hired Ryan for a few photoshoots and they were always awesome. Naturally, when I got married, I immediately came to him. I ended up hiring him to do our videography and everything was great. He was punctual and very professional. He kept me in the loop with the editing, which I really appreciated. Everything was wonderful!"
~Jessica & Alex C., [VIDEOGRAPHY 8/3/2013]

     "Ryan did a great job! I barely even noticed he was there, yet he captured so many great moments on camera. Simply beautiful. I'm very pleased with his work and received so many compliments saying our trailer is the best wedding video they have seen! I highly recommend him."
~Rebekah & Tylor O., [VIDEOGRAPHY 8/31/2014]

     "Ryan was great to work with and the outcome was incredible. I have had so many people tell me that our wedding trailer was the best they've ever seen and we will treasure it for years to come. We hired him on a friend's recommendation and are so glad that we did!"
~Lauren & Jaden S., [VIDEOGRAPHY 9/21/2014]

     "Mike and I are thrilled with the pictures!! We've shared the [online photo gallery] link with our close family and they are also in awe. You captured the important moments and also took some great artistic shots. Well done!"
~Sara & Mike G., [PHOTOGRAPHY 9/26/2015]

     "The wedding trailer is amazing! We love it, and couldn't have asked for anything better! I'm so happy we hired you to shoot our wedding, I couldn't have been any more impressed with your work!"
~Jean & Mitch B., [VIDEOGRAPHY 8/22/2015]
