WEDDING + ENGAGEMENT PRICING GUIDE

Congratulations on your engagement. I am so glad you found me.

I specialize in natural, authentic wedding photography. I love documenting unexpected images of your love, the mischief of the day, the quiet moments, and the joy of your loved ones as they celebrate with you. 

My pricing includes ALL the DIGITAL NEGATIVES. You can customize the 4-hour Simple Collection with extras, such as an engagement session, additional hours of coverage, and/or a wedding album; or keep the Simple Collection as is. It's everything you need for the perfect day. Included with the Simple Collection are 20 years of experience as a wedding moment chaser, expert dress bustler, family wrangler, and boutonniere pinner. ❤️

THANK YOU.

Thank you for taking the time to determine if we are a good fit for one another. I am honored to be considered for your special day.  I capture the essence of your story, so anyone looking at the images can instantly know what it felt like to be there; the laughter, the tears, the overwhelming joy. 

I take great pride in creating an atmosphere of friendship and am committed to creating images that you will treasure for the rest of your lives. Your experience is as important as the images we'll create together. I would LOVE to meet with you to review my portfolio, and sample wedding albums, and discuss your wedding photography needs. I want to hear about your love story, what is important to you, and what you want to remember 30 years from now.

FAQ

Can you tell me more about you?

1. Your wedding day should be joyful and relaxed. While documenting important moments during your ceremony and first look, I am invisible, but create a fun and relaxed environment when directing poses.
We create a plan for the day so everyone knows what to expect.

2. Christina Johnson Photography will be here tomorrow too. I have been in business for 20 years because I treat my clients with honesty, respect, and fairness. It matters.

3. I strive to be innovative and current while still producing images that stand the test of time. I choose fresh, vibrant, true-to-life images above what’s popular this season. I don’t believe in coloration or pre-sets. Trends are just that…and I don’t want to be the shoulder pads of wedding photography (cool until they just…aren’t).

4. EXPERIENCE! When you hire Christina Johnson Photography, you are gaining access to years and years of experience. Through the 250+ weddings that I have shot, there isn’t a single thing I haven’t been through. Every wedding day fiasco, every complicated family situation, every unique and special set of circumstances, I have seen it all. I use all of those past experiences to make your day stress-free and to handle all those unique situations with grace.

5. Each couple gets access to the entire Christina Johnson Photography experience. From assistance with your wedding day schedule, possible locations for photography, vendor suggestions, oodles of hype energy, and even advice on wrangling unruly family members.

Every wedding experience includes a detailed checklist to get to the heart and soul of your wedding day dreams, a customized shot list, and a wedding day timeline. 

We can assist you with building your perfect wedding album, choosing your favorite images to enlarge, or printing fabulous products. You’ll receive beautiful and unique images, but you’ll also have a magnificent experience.

Whatever you need, just ask! I'm your girl.

Tell me more about the GUESTBOOK.

We find the perfect location during your receiving line, or at your reception, where we can capture professional images of each of your guests. We take the time to instruct your guests to write a beautiful personalized message in your guest book. Guestbook services include 30 minutes of additional wedding day coverage time at no additional charge.

You’ll receive the copyright release of all the guest images so that you can create a print of each of your guests to insert next to their personal message in your guest book. Many couples also include a copy of the photos with thank-you notes. Such a special touch!

Will my images be edited?

All images will be edited for color, clarity, and contrast. I strive for natural, true-to-life color with light-creamy skin tones. I soft skin brush can be added at no additional charge.

Do you travel?

We love to explore new venues and are available for domestic and international travel. Travel within a 20 mile radius of Little Falls, MN is included at no charge. Travel outside of this radius is determined on an individual basis. Please take us along on your destination wedding or elopement; we have our passport ready!

Do I have to order prints through you?

The Simple Collection comes complete with high resolution, art ready digital negatives to ALL your wedding day images and a copyright release so that you can select your own printing service and share on social media. There is no obligation to purchase anything further.

We do offer affordable professionally printed products, canvas gallery wraps, art-shaped prints, save the date and holiday cards, and beautiful hand-crafted wedding albums that you can easily order directly from your gallery.

This service sets us apart from other great photographers.

What is your turnaround time?

We publish an online gallery of all your images within one to two weeks from your wedding date.

You'll be able to download all of your high resolution images right from the gallery with the click of a button. If you, or family/friends, wish to order professional prints and products from us, this option is also available right from your gallery.

Plus, you can easily share your gallery to social media right from the site. Our clients love the ease and simplicity of our online gallery.

What is the difference between a wedding and micro wedding?

The difference is the size and scope of the wedding. Micro weddings are much smaller and more simplified. To determine which is right for you, ask yourself “What is meaningful to us? What elements are important in our wedding?” Each of you will have a different answer.
There are no right and wrong ways to have a wedding, only what is best for you.

For some, it’s having their friends and family come together to witness your wedding ceremony, eat, drink and dance. If this is what you’ve always dreamed of, review our Wedding and Engagement pricing (above). You’ll see our Simple Collection which can be tailored to meet your needs by adding optional extras to the Simple Collection if you would like.

For some, your wedding is about the two of you privately sharing vows, with just a few key friends and/or family members. Or you may have a limited budget, a short period of time to plan, a busy schedule, an adventurous spirit or just don’t want a large wedding.

If this is more your style or situation, review our All-Inclusive Micro Weddings pricing on the next tab.. You’ll see our Micro Collection which includes photography and a custom ceremony with an ordained officiant. You can add optional items to complete your day and make it all you've ever dreamed of.
