here it is. the ugly bit. the “investment” as they call it. which it is. i’d just rather not, like, coat it in sugar. ’cause i like being real. so let’s be as real as real can be right now and agree that weddings and wedding photographers are friggin’ ex-pen-siiiiiive. we are. but this is not money you will ever regret spending. trust.
oh, hey! we do boudoir, too. ladies and couples shoots are available (no dude-oir at this time, unless under a very, very special circumstance), but if you’re just a lady, do not request mat to shoot you in your undies. because i’m possessive like that and he’s a goddamned gentleman, goddamnit, and his virgin eyes and mind needn’t be tainted by your evil vixen bodies. i’m mostly kidding about that last part, but really, boudoir is totally my thing so i’ll be the one doing that.
the bare bones – $2800

the best one – bigger, badder, beefier – $5000
photography by sara+mat of: engagement and wedding day – guys and girls getting ready (1 hour before getting dressed) + ceremony + portraits + reception until 90 minutes after the dance floor opens and people are super hammed)

we’re in cobourg (which we love) but we also love leaving it. we’ve done weddings in the GTA, muskokas, haliburton and the kawarthas, ottawa, sudbury, colorado, maryland, cuba, dominican republic, and australia (to name a LOT, but not all of them) so don’t hesitate to ask if you’re not right in our neck of the woods. travel charges do apply sometimes, obv, but generally aren’t too crazy. we’re reasonable folks. yeah!
boudoir session alone – $375
20 side 7×7 handmade boutique photo album – $350
FAMILY + LIFESTYLE: $375
lifestyle shoots are so fun!! we show up and photograph you performing routine activities in your home (or wherever) with your family (or spouse or whatever) and it gives what looks like a real (but slightly more glamorous) glimpse into YOUR life.
ideas for this: giving child a bath (in the kitchen sink is a favourite), baking cookies, playing a family game (indoor or out, board or sports), etc.
we can also do, instead, a 1-2 hour mostly-posed shoot of you and your family, but we’re better at catching moments than setting up kitschy poses. FYI.
