Weddings Packages

The Covenant Experience

My packages were created based on years of experience talking to couples to find out what they really want with their wedding photos or what married couples wished they had had with their wedding photos. Most people want every aspect of the wedding experience photographed. They want good quality pictures (not the kind from those little throw-away cameras!) of the bridal shower, the rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner, pictures at their house the day of the ceremony, the reception, the dancing and yes of course, the wedding ceremony! Weddings take months of planning and preparation. People want to be able to look back and see the fruit of all their labor. There are so many things that go on that the Bride or Groom would never see unless it was photographed. That's what I do. It's something to really enjoy later.

My style of wedding photography captures the entire history of the event. The way your proof book will be laid out will essentially take you on a tour of your wedding experience from beginning to end. You will see many things that will bring you joy. Things you could not see while preparing to walk down the aisle.

Through out the wedding and other scheduled venues, constant communication is maintained with the wedding coordinator. They may know certain people that need to be photographed or certain situations at a reception that need to recorded. This provides you the peace of mind that what you want to see later will be photographed. If you don't have a coordinator, I'll gather as much information as possible beforehand during your initial consultation with me.

Every single picture that I take is examined and customized post-production to ensure that it looks great when the final product is delivered. You will receive a minimum of 200 to 300 pictures in your proof book. You pick the ones that you want for your formal book and for enlargements. Depending on which package you choose, You can then keep the proof book!

I also provide a complimentary engagement photo session for clients who book package #1 or #2. That's a $225 value that is free for a confirmed booking. You will also receive a free proofbook of your photo session. That's a $125 value! You can then either purchase a digital file and use the image with your wedding announcements or purchase an enlargement of your favorite image and proudly display it at your wedding reception. (This is included in package #1)








My wedding package prices are $1,000 for package #3, $1,500 for package #2 and $2,000 for package #1. They are a bargain based on what you receive and the level of service that I provide. I usually end up as a friend of all my clients and I get referrals based on that relationship. If you are shopping for value, quality and getting your money's worth, I'm the photographer for you.

If you are shopping on price alone, you can always find a lower price, but will you truly get the kind of service and the kind of pictures that you deserve? Your wedding day pictures are a one time deal that can't be recaptured later. It's an investment that you will want to enjoy forever. You should be able to enjoy your wedding pictures forever without any regrets.

I can work with couples who are on a tight budget. We just need to sit down and discuss the most important things that you want and then customize a package that can meet your budget. I believe that EVERYONE deserves to have professional pictures of their wedding!

I don't believe you should have to pay several thousands of dollars for your pictures, but the ones that I take will seem like they are worth a million when you see them!

Thank you for choosing Covenant Digital Photography.

My motto is:'Promises Kept - You will receive what we have agreed'

If you need additional information, you can call me to schedule a free consultation to discuss your special day. I'll also show you a portfolio of previous weddings and an example of one of my custom DVD slideshows. I can be reached at any time at 313-617-1395.
