Weddings - colinruggiero

I shoot a very limited number of weddings these days. If you're interested, please send me an inquiry using the contact form. The wedding industry is such a racket - trying to leverage that this-only-happens-once factor to charge three times as much as they should. But I do love to shoot weddings. As a photographer with a background in cultural anthropology, I am drawn to them as one of our culture's most beautiful celebrations of love and community.  My approach to weddings is simple:

When I shoot a wedding I am there for the entire event. I’ll be there before set-up begins and stay through the end. I believe this is what is required to capture a wedding well. I select roughly 250-400 images, depending on the length of the wedding, to edit and post in an online gallery. The gallery can be password protected if you wish and this gallery is the best way I know of to share photos with those who couldn’t be present. High-resolutions downloads are available of any image in the gallery and in addition, all of the photos are optimized and color-calibrated for printing through the professional lab I use and these services and print options are integrated directly into the online gallery.

My standard rate is $3000 for local weddings and $3500 plus travel for destination weddings. While I don't offer a bunch of pre-made packages, I can accommodate a wide range of special requests, custom slideshows, engagement shoots, trash the dress sessions, etc. Please contact me for more info on these rates. I’d love to talk with you about your wedding. Feel free to call or email me with any questions or just to say hi at 406-570-9532 or ruggiero.colin@gmail.com. Or use the contact form on my site.
