A Wedding Photography Proposal for:
Gerritt & Skye
Venue: Tunnel Mountain Reservoir & Fenlands
Banff, Alberta, Canada
Guest count: 150ppl
Hello Gerritt & Skye!
Thank you for taking the time to connect with us last night! Congratulations again on your planning your wedding this year! We want to take a minute to officially introduce ourselves: we’re David and Breanne, a husband/wife duo who make it our mission to provide couples not only with timeless, beautifully documented memories, but also to provide the experience in the way it should be felt: stress-free and enjoyable! We’d love to create incredible portraits of your celebration!
From our conversation (and from hearing your epic engagement story), we know that you value an incredible experience. You want your celebration well-planned and intentional. And that’s why we're here guide you through everything photography-wise that you need to think about or know, far in advance, so that you are free to focus on what matters most to you, confident that the memories of the day will be documented well!
This proposal offers you three different packages, specifically tailored to fit the vision and tentative timeline you've shared with us for your day. From our conversation, it looks roughly something like this below (give or take, if your shift your ceremony earlier or later). I've also built in buffer to account for summer traffic flow in Banff area.
9:00am - Coverage begins with getting ready coverage (1-1.5hr)
10:30am - Leave for Tunnel Mountain
11:00am - Ceremony
11:30am - Family portraits on site (~20min)
12:00pm - Bridal party portraits (30min)
12:30pm - Leave for couple portraits
1:00pm - Arrive at portrait location, walk out (likely Lake Minnewanka)
1:15pm - Couple portraits first location
1:45pm - Head back to vehicles
2:00pm - Leave for second location
2:15pm - Arrive at second location
2:45/3:00pm - Leave for Fenlands
3:15/30pm - Bride & Groom join cocktail hour (3-4pm)
X - Dinner, speeches within
X - First dance, a good time to end coverage is 15min into everyone hitting the dance floor
We've bundled the packages to offer maximum value in each (as opposed to, for example, piecing together items a la carte, so you can enjoy more significant savings). Your portraits should be not only a timeless reflection of your best day ever, but be a tangible heirloom for you to look back on and remember well the moments and the story of getting married.
First, we’ll map out the packages designed around your vision. Then, we’ll clarify and explain what makes some of the details so great! We’ve also included a few extras, such as more sample galleries from previous weddings we’ve shot (to give you an idea of what a whole session looks/feels like).
Okay! Let’s jump in!
"So, I came across Heidrich Photography during my EXTENSIVE search of photographers. I have heard from far too many people that the only thing they regret is not investing in a good photographer. We are so glad that we did our research and decided on David and Breanne. My biggest compliment to this duo was that I never felt awkward posing for our photos. We are not comfortable human beings in front of the camera and David was so good at coaching us through out the day and everything felt natural."
- Larry & Mandy
"If you are looking for a wedding day photographer, look no further! I am at a loss for words on just how absolutely incredible it was to work with David and Breanne and have them photograph our wedding.
They were incredibly easy to work with, from the first consultation meeting at Monogram to the final delivery of our photos (which by the way, were printed and placed in a STUNNING wooden box!)
David is flexible, detailed, and incredibly talented. Looking back at our photos, we realized that he didn't only capture some beautiful portraits and pictures of my husband and I, but also photos of our guests and our families while they attend the events, and those really warmed our hearts.
I could not speak more highly of Heidrich Photography and their work, thank you David and Breanne!!!"
- Ian and Lamess
1. The Ultimate Experience Package
This is the package that takes care of everything for you! With up to 11 hours coverage, you can be confident that your wedding photos will be without any rush or stress, timeline-wise, regardless if anything runs a little behind. It’s a done-for-you, luxury experience enabling you to be present on your day, knowing that all the details are taken care of and you’ll have the memories documented beautifully, forever.
2. The Perfect Fit Package
This is the package that checks all the boxes. You’re guaranteed to get beautiful portraits documenting your celebration. We’re here to support you in creating the the most stress-free, enjoyable wedding photography experience ever, as well as enabling you to relive your wedding day again and again.
3. The Petite Package
This package gives you the basics for your session. While not as loaded with value and buffer in your timeline, it still offers a wonderful wedding photography experience with beautifully documented memories to cherish.
Possible a la carte add ons (to any package):
Engagement session - 695
First added hr - 395
Each additional hr - 595 (available in half hour increments)
Let us break down and explain the reasons behind specific package items and what makes them awesome!
The Second Photographer (Assistant/stylist):
While David is the main photographer on a wedding day, Breanne works as the second photographer, as well as a photographer’s assistant and stylist. The most wonderful part about having a second photographer assistant/stylist is the power of the details being taken care of. For parts of the day, in scenarios that need multiple angles captured (for example, the ceremony, the reception, getting ready), we are able to split up, shoot opposite sides, capture more emotion and cover moments beyond what only one photographer would be able. For other parts of the day, where you don’t need two photographers, Breanne helps to take care of styling details (ie. the dress, a flyaway hair, etc), helps to keep the photography timeline on track, as well as helps to navigate and coordinate family photos. We know how treasured wedding family portraits are, and we always strive to provide a stress-free, organized and fun family photo time.
When you’ve invested in such beautiful documentation of your wedding day, you deserve to have an equally beautiful way to share the story of the day. Our albums are the perfect blend of art and story, handcrafted and one of a kind, and made from materials of highest quality.
The Artisan Album (11x 14 or 9×12 or 8×10) is a gorgeous statement piece, the perfect way for the bride and groom to cherish their wedding day. It features lay flat binding, fine art print pages, calligraphy imprint on both album and box, a vellum first page as well as a matching bespoke album box.
The Fine Art Album (11×14 or 9×12 or 8×10, great for parent albums) features lay flat binding, fine art print pages, a calligraphy imprint on the album and a standard box.
Both albums are designed tell the story of the wedding day, having 25 spreads (50 pages), however, can be upgraded in size and/or to hold up to 35 spreads. Each additional spread (two pages) added is $32.
You receive the most value when you include an album in your wedding package – when bundled together, you enjoy significant savings. However, we totally understand that in some cases, couples prefer to wait and add an album at their own pace, as well as consider albums for parents or grandparents. When purchased al la carte, here are the album prices:
11×14 Artisan / 3295 CAD
9×12 Artisan / 2895 CAD
8×10 Artisan / 2495 CAD
11×14 Fine Art / 2795 CAD
9×12 Fine Art / 2395 CAD
8×10 Fine Art / 1995 CAD
*Duplicate design orders: Enjoy 20% off a second (or more) album ordered with the same design. It does not have to be the same album type, just the same design layout.*
If you have any questions or would like to know more about albums, we’d love to get you more information!
24 Sneak Peek:
Receiving a handful of your professional wedding photos within 24hrs after your wedding day is the best! Keep the excitement alive the day after by enjoying a few portraits from the day before, as well as share professional photos right away on social media with friends and family.
Photos To Hold:
All of our packages include our signature heirloom box of 4×6 prints from your entire day. We’ve found the experience of tangibly flipping through your wedding day is incomparable to any digital viewing method. It get’s pretty old, pretty quick asking people to gather around an iPad. There is just such a different experience created by passing stacks of photos around with family and friends – similar to when we find an old box of portraits in a closet and then time flies while we’re lost in the memories. We want you to experience your wedding day tangibly!
Your Wedding Gallery:
All of the packages include an online gallery with your high resolution, printing quality digital images. You will receive a download pin to access, download and back up all of your images from the day, and depending on your level of convenience and privacy, you can feel free to share your pin with those you want to share your wedding day with. The gallery is a great, easy way to share your big day with family or friends. (And if you have a portion of the day, for example, the getting ready, that you don’t want everyone seeing, you have the option to hide certain images from the main gallery view.) If you, or friends and family, are interested in ordering prints, the gallery is also connected to an online print shop. Print orders are shipped to your door and your online gallery will be live for 12 months.
Photos Before The Big Day:
We touched on this in our call, but will expand on it because we really believe engagement sessions are so good! Taking portraits prior to the wedding day is something we always recommend our couples do for three reasons:
1) We all feel nervous & awkward in front of the camera, right?! We know how strange and uncomfortable it feels to have the camera lens pointed at you. But we’ve got you covered. We’ll show you all the tips and tricks to looking your best and guide you every step of the way so you can feel natural and comfortable!
2) You can get to know us and feel comfortable working together before the wedding! It’s valuable to have a bit of warm/up and getting to know you time with us before your wedding day – because you have more important things to give your attention to! The beauty of meeting and working together prior to your wedding day is that we aren’t strangers on the most important day! Since you already will know how we work and what to expect, you can focus your attention on those people you love most all around you.
3) You want to feel confident, excited and ready to rock your wedding photos! Not only do we guide you in all the ways to feel and look awesome, you’ll have added confidence from knowing what to expect, as well as see the amazing photos you’ll be about to get for your wedding day!
"We loved working with David and Breanne and will forever treasure our photos. At our first meeting they took the time to get to know us and what we wanted out of our day and we felt that they carried the same thoughtfulness through until we received our photos. They were both a pleasure to spend time with on our wedding day and made things really easy on us communicating about anything we needed to think through in advance so we didn't have to worry about it on our wedding day. Would recommend them in a heartbeat! Thank you!"
- Mike & Jocelyn
"Right from the moment we met Heidrich Photography we knew we wanted them to photograph our wedding day. David made taking photos so comfortable. When we received our wedding photos we were blown away, going through them we just kept saying oh and I love this one too. There are too many amazing photos to choose from and they perfectly captured our day! We would recommend David and Breanne to anyone, they are amazing to work with and we can't wait to share our photos with everyone!"
- Cam & Megan
Okay! So what next?
Take a few days to review this proposal. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need any quick clarifications. Your follow up consult with David is booked for Tuesday at 5pm Pacific Time. David will answer any lingering questions you may have. If what you’ve reviewed sounds like a great fit, we will jump into next steps for solidifying your date. If you’re not ready to move forward or have some questions that need answers first, we can chat about what you need to move you there!
We’d love to work together to give you the best wedding photography experience ever!
David & Breanne
