We build your ala carte package to suit YOUR needs for time and any merch you may desire after the wedding (Although MetroStyle offers a full-range of post-wedding merchandise - reprints, enlargements, wall hangings, albums, thank you cards, etc., - there are no pressure sales and no obligation to buy anything! I don’t tempt young couples with low prices to come in here so that I can upsell them!)
My flagship product is the Contempo Collection ala carte package starting at $989 for five hours, which includes the assistance of Best-Of-Weddings Award Winner George Day throughout your wedding planning & shooting:
BEFORE THE WEDDING: A free sales consultation to chat, view photos and albums, and answer all your questions about my services
We meet in my comfortable kid-free, pet-free, smoke-free private home studio located just east of Crystal Airport and adjacent to the 42-acre Crystal Wildlife Preserve. HOURS: Except for summer Saturdays, I can be very flexible 24/7/365 to accommodate your busy schedule.
THIRTY DAYS BEFORE THE WEDDING: Free 90-minute planning consultation to help you lay out the timeline of your wedding photography
30 days prior to your event, George Day will meet with you for a 90-minute planning session to assist you in laying out the timeline of your wedding day photography,thereby insuring that George and his team help you have a picture-perfect day.
ON THE WEDDING DAY: Up to 8 hours photography with 3-time Knot.com Best of Weddings Award-winner George Day (and his professional assistant/second shooter if desired).
An eight-hour package at $1,439 will generally gets you from the last 20-30 minutes in the dressing room to the first 20-30 minutes of partying on the dance floor after your first dances. Travel up to 60 miles round trip is included free, additional charges will depend on location - we usually shoot all over Minnesota & Wisconsin with some restrictions.
WITHIN ONE WEEK OF THE WEDDING: Expect about 50 fully photofinished wedding photos per hour of shooting time. Photos are delivered as highest-resolution jpgs, both on a USB Drive AND in your own private online gallery within only one week of the wedding!
Full high-resolution photos are delivered to the couple on a USB thumb drive within one week of the wedding, and will appear for 180 days in an online gallery where you, your family & friends can download high-res images for free, or purchase top-quality reprints, enlargements, and merchandise at the lowest prices in the industry (LOWER than shutterfly!)
Price includes photoshop photofinishing work, and permanent file back-ups at our studio for your long-term safety, & a signed copyright release form for the couple so that you may print or otherwise use your high-res images as you wish.
AT THE COUPLE'S LEISURE FOLLOWING THE WEDDING:
We are a full-service studio, offering top-quality reprints, enlargements, cards, albums, canvas & float wrap wall hangings, etc. Expect NO pressure sales. There is no obligation to buy. My clients are savvy modern young couples - mostly already burdened with student loan debt - who know where to find online options that are better suited to their limited budget.
ENGAGEMENT / SAVE-THE-DATE CARD SESSIONS: Due to the layers of bureaucracy and the licensing requirements for photographers to shoot in Minneapolis proper, I no longer contract for sittings in any of the Minneapolis parks. I offer a convenient package for those couples who wish to send save-the-date cards, as follows: For $189, I will shoot a 30-to-40-minute session in Kylawn Park or the Crystal MAC wildlife reserve, both of which are within walking distance of my home studio. This session will produce about 10 images, from which we can choose your favorites so as to make a 2-sided 5x7 full-color save-the-date card.
I will design your card for you, and upon your approval of the layout, I’ll produce 100 cards and envelopes for your use. Additional cards are $1.00/each and must be ordered in lots of 25.
For other engagement sittings, which must be outside the Minneapolis Park System, travel fees will be charged. Please inquire.
