Designs for Portrait Sessions
A Portrait Session includes a free pre-portrait consultation regarding the date, time, and photography location. Also, we discuss the best style and color clothing to wear and how your final portraits will be gifted or displayed at home. Here are some portrait types:
Cape Casual Beach Portrait Session is created on our beach in Centerville, sometimes just before sunset. This is a good way to get acquainted and feel relaxed with my natural posing techniques. Includes: up to 1 hour and 50 images to select from on my website. Albums and Prints are ordered separately.
Casual Outdoor Portrait Session is created at my Whistleberry outdoor gardens, beach dune, and water fall. Includes: half hour and 25 images to select from on my website. Albums and Prints are ordered separately.
Design for Different Wedding Sessions
Each wedding is unique and the photography should reflect the love and important relationships with your family and friends. Documenting your wedding begins with a lengthy discussion to plan for your special day and how my photography can be designed to complement and record the important moments. A timeline will be estimated in order to reserve my photography services for the proper allotted time. The longer I am with you on your wedding day, the more images you will get. We also design a photography order consisting of my photography style, proofs, albums and gift prints.

Wedding Photography Albums for the Bride and Groom
I can create a very special photo journal from your wedding day photographs, called the Signature Album. When you open your Signature Album, your wedding day memories come alive again, because of the carefully selected and arranged images that capture the many wonderful events as they unfold. Your album is created using my website, from your favorites folder of on-line photo selections. I then carefully arrange a storybook design on the pages with custom mat templates that enhance the photos. As you turn the pages, there is a beautiful flow of imagery that portrays your relationships and emotions throughout the day. Color and black and white photography can be mixed, as well as, a variety of print sizes on each page. Each album I create is special and unique.
Each album is custom crafted by experienced bookmakers, and you have your choice of color leather covers imprinted with your names and date. The photographs are permanently mounted to each page, sprayed with a protective clear coating, and then bound to a sturdy spine. The standard size album page is one 10" x10" photograph, which may be a single large image, or a page comprised of multiple images. The total pages and images and album can have is unlimited, but usually has to be edited in order meet your Photography Design Credit budget. On average, a thirty page album has a design with about 80 different sized wedding images. A forty page album design has about 125 images, and a 50 page album is a storybook with over 175 images. The Signature album is custom ordered.
Coffee Table Style Albums for You or Your Parents
Coffee Table Albums are a new and an exciting way to preserve your wedding photographs in a bound book style. The coffee table album is designed like a bound book you would buy at the book store. It has a cloth hard cover and press printed glossy paper pages that have photographs printed on both sides. The preferred layout is one photo per page, although by special request, a mix of image sizes can be designed. Also, any image can be made color or black and white. The album page size comes in either 15"x12" or 10"x7". The larger album has about 75 mixed-size images. A smaller album is available with about 30 single images. Album Slip Covers are now available in all sizes to add a photographic image on the book cover. This album can be a great alternative to the Leather Signature Album and is very cost effective. Duplicated albums can be give to your parents, or they can design their own book.
Cape Cod Wedding Video Recordings on DVD
A Live Video Recording can be combined with your photography to create the complete wedding day story. A second video photographer discretely video records your ceremony, photo sessions, candid scenes, and reception highlights. I offer two video recording versions. One has no editing and captures up to two hours of the wedding day highlights on two DVD's, and is called the Unedited Long Version Video. The second version only records the important scenes of the day are recorded and made into a shorter, one hour DVD. This other version is appropriately called the Edited Highlights Video. There are titles and background music on both video versions.
All versions begin wherever the photographer starts—either at the getting ready location, or the ceremony location. The unedited video captures the ceremony procession, wedding vows, readings and homily. Also any special ceremony music can be recorded, if requested. Next on the video are a few scenes of the photography sessions, and some cocktail hour candid scenes. The wedding party introductions into the reception room are recorded, as well as, the bride and groom's first dance. Then there are toasts, cake cutting, parent dances, and the remaining scenes from the video is dance floor candid action and guests having a good time. The video photographer's style is discrete, and documents the events from behind the scenes. We use small, discrete digital equipment so it is easy to blend into the wedding day.
Original Digital Photography Files on DVD
The current trend is supplementing the photo album package and buying the original photography files so you can archive them and view the images on your own computer. Though once reluctant to do so, photographers now offer this product. Russ Price offers his work on a disc in two versions. 1) High Resolution Quality DVD and a signed Copyright Release stating you own the files and can print enlargements. The Design Value is $1.00 per image. 2) The other disc version is a very Low Resolution, or screen resolution so you can view the images on a computer or TV. You cannot make a print larger than 4x6". But this resolution is great for online sharing of images. The Design Credit Value is $.50 per image. Please note a minimum purchase is required on other products before you can buy the digital files. Please inquire.
Books, Framed Portraits and Gift Prints
The Cape Cod Picture Guest Book is a customized twist on the traditional guest book. This is a hardcover coffee table style album printed with Beach Photos of you. The guests will sign and write a personalized message, interleaved with unique portraits of the couple and seacapes. The portraits can be of childhood photos, engagement portraits, or any image provided by the couple. The guest book can have up to 10 personalized images of the wedding couple and also includes about 10 scenic and blank pages for the signatures and message.
Easel Signature Mat Seating Assignment Portrait is a beautifully framed portrait session of the wedding couple (made prior to the wedding day), and presented at the wedding reception for the guests to sign the outer mat. Frame size is about 18"x24". I can also print all the guests names and table assignments, on the outer edge of the print.
Table Top Signature Mats are smaller 8"x10" size mats that are placed one at each table, and the guests can write a personal message on the mat. The photo space can be left blank and filled later with a photo of that table grouping, or other image from the wedding day. Each mat with a 5"x7" photograph. A Cape scenic photo can be substituted in the mat and then replaced with a wedding day photograph.
Audio CD Recording of Your Wedding Vows and Special Comments
Now Russ Price offers a sound recording of your wedding ceremony from the start of the processional to the recessional. A CD is made so you can play it back like a music disc. This would be a nice surprise gift for your fiancé! You can listen to it on your anniversary to bring back the memories! You get one quality Digital Stereo recording. Reception speeches, first dances and guest comments are optional.
Gift Frames can be made for your wedding party or parents as a way to thank them for their assistance. One Frame Holds one 5"x7" matted and 8"x10" Frame. Images can be made special for them on the wedding day and inserted later.
Panel Frames are created from three images that are matted and presented in a single frame to display a sequence. Try a black and white photo sequence for a timeless presentation. Three 5"x7" prints in a panel frame.
