Alive Studios Photographer Cost - Boulder, Colorado

Your Investment

Capturing compelling images of your wedding is one of the most vital elements of the entire celebration.  Alive Studios takes a unique approach to developing our approach, defining deliverables, and ultimately coming up with a budget that fits your desire to invest in the lifelong memories of the day you begin your lives together as a married couple.

As explained in the Philosophy section of this site, charges are broken into two phases. Phase one pricing with Alive Studios is determined by the amount of time spent shooting your wedding, and the cost of processing the images.  Shooting time is billed at between $250 and $350/hour for the time worked on the day of your wedding, and includes full rights to your digital high resolution JPG images.  For the image processing, a charge of $2/proof image presented is billed. We believe in charging you up front for exactly what is delivered, nothing more.  This is why we don’t sell “packages” that force you to fit our idea of what a wedding should cost.  Each wedding is unique and different, and therefore each wedding has a different level of investment.

Each of our photographers has a different style and a rate consistent with their experience. Rates are as follows:

Benjamin – $350/hour
Johannah – $300/hour
Ania – $300/hour
Jitka – $275/hour
Lauren – $250/hour

For most weddings, we shoot approximately 75 – 100 images per hour throughout the celebration (any mix of color or B&W presented).  An average of between six and ten hours is typical for most celebrations. This puts final costs for phase one between $2500 and $4500 depending on the details of your wedding and the photographer you work with.  This includes full digital rights to your high resolution images, as well as an album credit.

It is very difficult to estimate phase two costs (albums, reprints, digital negatives, etc.) because it’s entirely up to you how many enlargements to order, what type of album, etc. Click below to investigate more about phase one, as well as details on phase two.
