Below are details about package options, how photo galleries will be given out and how many photos will be given to you
“The Party Queen”- You will get one photographer; The Party Queen Joyce will oversee the entire day. When the sun peeps through early in the morning. It is the beginning of a big work day. Joyce will begin with the bride and bridal party prep photos, then drive do the ceremony location and get ready for a lot of ducking down and walk-sprinting from row to row in the church or squat in the middle of the aisle and get those damn good kiss shots, whilst I try not to block the view of the guests. And of course, she’ll get the friends/family/work colleagues formal group photos done too. She shall then sprint out to the parking lot and proceed to drive to a pretty photo location where she will speedily get all the groomsmen’s photos done, bridal party photos done, romantic bride and groom photos done. It’s gonna turn out so cute!
Finally, we get to the reception location now! YAS! And what does this mean? It means partay time! In comes the speeches, the toasts, the food (DINNER TIME, I LOVE THIS MOMENT!) the first dance, the cake cutting, performances from the bridal party. She’ll somehow figure a way to also do the backdrop photos and roaming photos and dancing photos, but most likely cannot guarantee that this aspect of the event is covered cause she is only one person and can only overwork so much. She’s a hardworking ninja that zips through crowds of people to get to where she needs to be to get the shot. Please feed her if you may, cause ninja-ing is a tough job. She photographs very quickly and captures all the great laughs and candid loving moments with friends and family. $240/hr
2. “Scooby Doo Doo Duo”- Joyce will be the main photographer for the event and she will bring a second shooter with her as well, to cover other angles that Joyce does not have the time to run over to cover. The second shooter will be in charge of photographing the grooms prep photos in the morning and will also take photos of guests mingling happily amongst themselves while Joyce focuses on photos of the newlywed couple and their close family and friends. Of course, food, drinks, venue, guests, dancing, speeches will all be photographed cause at May Dream we like to capture the all rounded vibes.
3.“Star22y Twirl”- This is a “Party Queen” and May Dream videographer goodness combo. Joyce will not JUST WATCH you dance, she will dance with you on the dance floor once the music starts. She will do her job amazingly fine while having fun with you and the guests, and don’t worry about her getting drunk, because she has been sober her entire life. The videographer will most likely be circling around the outskirts of the party hoop to get those brilliant movements which really adds flair into the final edit of the short film. We will both stick it through to the end with you. $380/hr
4.“Wowzah Trio” – This is the package that will blow your mind away, that’s right! We bring you, the “Wowzah Trio” to take care of your event. There will be one main photographer, one second shooter and one videographer whom will edit the footage into a beautiful short film for you, so you guys can watch the video and relive the beautiful memories. Aside from getting work from our two photographers mentioned in the first two package options, our videographer will document the little precious moments such as children playing hide and seek or parent’s holding back their tears when they make their speech. $500/hr

How many photos will be given out?
Events are one of the most complex photo-sessions as they require a photographer’s flexibility with working in different lighting conditions and adapting to them from one area to another. A precise number of photos given cannot be promised as the photographer does not know what will actually happen on the day, it is quite dependant on what activities happen at the event and also how keen the guests are to have their photos taken, some people just hate having their photo taken, and we totally respect that. But what the photographer can guarantee is that they will go home and spend looking through all the photos they took, hand pick out all the good photos and then proceed to edit them so that people’s faces glow like they are sun-kissed.
From experience I can estimate that with about 80-180 guests attending the wedding, after I moderated the numbers for four hours of coverage, I can give out approximately 50-160 edited photos per hour. This is just to give you a general idea cause every event varies so drastically. Like I spoke about in the above statement, we photograph as the event unfolds itself, leave it to us, we’ve got the media side of things sorted out for you.
