Valerie offers a variety of photographic services, and will be happy to work with you to tailor a rate to fit your specific needs. Please see below for Valerie's general prices.


Wedding Photojournalism


All-inclusive, complete wedding-day coverage for $2400. Valerie will document every step of your wedding day, including all preparations, ceremony, unique portraits and complete reception coverage. A 50% retainer is due at time of booking/contract with balance due on day of event. An hourly rate is available if your occasion does not require all-day, beginning-to-end coverage.


If the all-inclusive package is not for you, Valerie also provides wedding and event photojournalism at an hourly rate of $250/hour. There is a booking minimum of eight hours on Saturdays during the months of May, June, July and August.


All wedding packages include:

  • Custom online gallery for you (and anyone you invite) to view and order very low-cost prints (rate varies somewhat depending on volume, but usally about twenty cents per 4 x 6 print).
  • Rights-released CD or DVD containing all of the best custom color-toned images (typically 250-400 photos) of your special day.
  • A 4x6 print album containing 100-150 of the best images (color or black & white -- your choice) for you to keep, enjoy and share.


Valerie offers wedding coverage anywhere in southern/central Wisconsin or the Chicago area for no additional charge.


We will be happy to also provide assistance or guidance if you are interested in creating a bound album of your favorite wedding images.


An engagement session gives Valerie the opportunity to spend quality time with the couple and better understand their personalities and the dynamics of the couple's love. A two-hour engagement session may be added to any wedding package for just $150.


Family, Baby, Pregnancy and Boudoir


Valerie provides several types of unique portraiture. Please contact the photographer to discuss your ideas and needs. Most sessions last about two hours at the location(s) of your choice. Rate for portrait sessions is $125/hour (minimum of 1.5 hours) and includes all custom-retouched images on CD as well as a small album with the best images in your choice of color or black & white. Portrait sessions are generally available only to clients in the Greater Madison area.
