Which 1826 Wedding Collection Is Right For You?

If you’re reading this blog post, we’re guessing that a congrats is (or is soon) to be in order! Maybe you’re recently engaged and planning your dream wedding, or maybe you’re a parent or a friend helping plan the big day. Whichever applies to you, CONGRATS!!! You’re about to embark on such an amazing time in your life. From the dress to the cake, the rings to the kiss, the couple to the guests, we know that each moment of your wedding is just as beautiful and important as the next. Couples spend months planning for their special day and, unfortunately, it flies by in the blink of an eye. This is why we believe the photographic memories of that day deserve to last a lifetime.

With over 15 years of experience in the wedding industry, you can feel confident trusting us to handle your wedding day with the utmost care. When booking 1826 Photographic, we become part of your family and you become part of ours. We can assure you that we won’t be “just another vendor on your list” but rather an experience you’ll never forget! Showcased in the four wedding collections, we created these packages to fit the needs of anyone looking for high-quality, timeless, full-service photography.

Our 1 Carat Wedding Collection is our smallest wedding package. This package is meant for those who are planning a small wedding or vow renewal on a non-Saturday date (hello Friday and Sunday weddings!). On a typical 1 Carat Wedding day, we are there to capture the things that are the most important to the couple. 6-hours sounds like a lot of time but on a wedding day, it goes by oh so quickly! Sometimes couples who choose this option will have to decide to prioritize one section of the day over another (ex: capturing more dance floor photos and not photographing any of the “getting-ready” portions of the day), but trust that we will capture the most important parts of the day: the ceremony, the creative portraits, and the formal family photos.

  • 1 Carat Wedding Collection* – $2800
    • 6 hours of wedding day coverage
    • One photographer
    • Retouched, high-resolution digital negatives (delivered on a standard USB Drive and online gallery)
    • Ownership of all high-resolution images with print release
    • *** This collection is only available for non-Saturday weddings ***

Our next package is our 2 Carat Wedding Collection. They always say that two is better than one and we definitely agree! During a hectic Saturday wedding, it’s always best to have an extra set of hands, and in our case, eyes capturing your day. This is why all of our Saturday wedding packages come with 2 photographers. With a team of photographers, you’re getting more photos at different angles, or even another part of the day captured that you can’t be at. One of us might be with the bride/groom while they get ready, while the other is with their partner-to-be capturing them get ready for the day. Or one of us can be outside capturing creative portraits, while the other photographs their venue before their guests arrive! There are so many bonuses to having 2 photographers – we could go on for days! Not only do you get 2 photographers, but you will also receive our standard wedding album with this package – the perfect way to commemorate your union. This package is only 8 hours but trust us when we say that we can get a lot done in 8 hours! We will try our best to work with your timeline to make sure that all of your photo dreams come true!

  • 2 Carat Wedding Collection – $4800
    • 8 hours of wedding day coverage
    • Two photographers
    • Retouched, high-resolution digital negatives (delivered on a standard USB Drive and online gallery)
    • Ownership of all high-resolution images with print release

Our 3 Carat Wedding Collection is our most popular wedding collection, and we can see why! This package covers all the bases – there is ample time for photos (allowing for all of the “musts” of the day to be photographed and then some), two of us will be with you during the day, and you also get a custom, high-end wedding album AND an engagement session with us! After the “yes” and before the wedding planning even begins, it’s important to mark the occasion with an engagement shoot that’s distinctively the two of you. It’s also a great way for us to get to know each other and get even more excited for the big day! You can get a sense of how we work with you, our shooting style, and a glimpse of just how fun the big day will be with us at your side!

Our 4 Carat Wedding Collection is the largest wedding package that we offer, and man, does this package have it all!!! Not only will you have a team of photographers capturing your ENTIRE wedding day, but you will also see us during your rehearsal dinner AND at your styled engagement shoot. You also get a TON of print options included in this collection: a guest signature album of your engagement session for you to put out at your wedding, a large, custom, high-end wedding album, and $250 in credits to go towards any prints or other keepsake items (like upgrades to your wedding album or even a parent album you could use as a gift!)
