Since every couple is unique our wedding and elopement packages are custom built around your needs. Complete wedding packages start in $4000-$5000 range. Elopement packages are in the $2000-$3000 range. Please contact us with what you are looking for and we can send you our rates and a custom quote.
Our packages come with two full-time photographers. Both Marc and Brenda have been professionally shooting weddings since 2011. We bring two perspectives and two simultaneous angles to your wedding day. As a team, we work together to capture your day from various vantage points using different techniques and lenses.
Your love is unlike any other which is why we work with you to customize your wedding adventure. Through pre-wedding consultations we assist you with your timeline to maximize both the best photo opportunities and experience.
wedding day coverage
On your wedding day we recommend 8+ hours of wedding day coverage so that we can tell the story of your day. We’ll work with you to decide which aspects of your wedding are most important to you and make sure we are there to capture it.
An engagement PhotoDate is a great way to get to know us so that when we show up on your wedding day we are familiar faces. We want to alleviate any stress you have regarding your wedding photography. We want you to be comfortable with us and in front of our cameras. We want you to know that having your photo taken is actually quite fun! Read more about our PhotoDates or check some out on the blog.
post wedding experience
Our work for you doesn’t end when you make your grand exit as husband and wife. Your package includes image post-processing where we cull and edit your photos. Within days we publish a preview on social media and a feature on our blog. In two weeks or less, your images are delivered through an online gallery that you can share with friends and family. Your wedding package also includes the digital image collection and a fine art wedding album including design. We also offer other prints and products.
what is your style?
Our focus is on documenting the beauty of the people, the place, and the events you plan for your wedding! During the majority of your wedding, we work in a documentary style where we are not posing or directing, simply capturing events as they happen. At some point during the day, usually around sunset, we will take photos of just the bride and groom. During this time we will give some direction regarding what to do but we try to create the best experience possible, often encouraging couples to enjoy the moment and look out at the view. This allows for a natural look. You’ll get the hang of it on your engagement PhotoDate so it will come very naturally on the wedding day.
what if we feel awkward about getting our photos taken?
We work with couples that say they are awkward or uncomfortable all the time. We do our best to get to know you and put you at ease so you can look and feel natural. Before a PhotoDate we like to meet at a coffee shop or brewery and chat for a while so everyone is relaxed when we head out to take photos. Sometimes we tell jokes but that usually ends with people laughing at us instead of with us… whatever works right 😉
do you travel to my location? what are your travel fees?
You may have noticed that we can be seen shooting Colorado weddings, California weddings, mountain weddings, beach weddings, and more. We travel throughout Colorado, California, and beyond to your outdoor wedding destination. We love weddings and we love to travel. We do our best to keep travel fees to a minimum so that you are paying for photography. There are no travel fees for locations in or near Evergreen, CO or Visalia, CA or if you meet us somewhere that we already plan to be. For weddings within California or Colorado but more than 75 miles OR 1 hour from Evergreen or Visalia, we simply require two nights of accommodations. Travel fees outside of either state are based on the destination. Be sure to check out our travel dates or get in touch
do you offer engagement photo sessions?
We would love to capture this special time in your lives. We call your engagement session a PhotoDate, it is part photoshoot and part double date. It is a great opportunity to get to know each other and have an experience all while creating images. We encourage you to schedule your engagement PhotoDate somewhere fun, important, or memorable. Let’s go somewhere and do something. You’re engaged, let’s celebrate!
do you shoot anything other than weddings?
We specialize in capturing adventurous couples and the mountain lifestyle. Check our www.thebergreens.com for non-wedding work.
how many photographers come with our wedding or engagement package?
We are a husband and wife photography team and we love shooting weddings together. Our packages come with two photographers, Marc and Brenda Bergreen, for your wedding day.
do you accommodate specific requests for pictures we want?
It’s your wedding and our first goal is to capture your special day. All your specific requests will be covered in your pre-wedding consultation with us. We are always looking to connect with our clients and create a remarkable experience.
how fast will our photographs be ready?
Two weeks. We know how important your wedding day is and we do our best to deliver your edited image collection in a timely manner. A preview of your wedding photos will be available even faster.
how many images do you deliver?
Enough to cover the event without overwhelming you with duplicates. You can expect somewhere in the ballpark of 600 edited photos although the exact quantity varies based on the wedding.
what is your editing process like?
In addition to culling the images and selecting the very best for delivery, we color correct and make minor edits on all of the photos. Our style is very pure and true to life. We like to edit our images in a timeless way that won’t go out of style and will continue to spark your memory for years to come. While we may enhance a photo to draw your attention somewhere or remove distracting elements, we like to keep it real and use our creativity when creating the photo.
how do we receive our images?
First you receive and online gallery where you can view and download web resolution files that can be shared online. (We do always appreciate that you tag us on social media when appropriate.) If you purchased the digital image collection with your package, you will also receive a thumb drive with the high-resolution files and a print release that allows you to print the photos for personal use. We do also offer prints and products through our website and are here to help you turn your photos into printed art.
what happens if it rains at our outdoor wedding?
It rained on our wedding day, we hear it’s supposed to be good luck! As experienced outdoor wedding photographers we are adaptable and always seek to capture the best moments in every situation. We cover this topic and more in blog posts on wedding photography advice.
