HOW TO BOOK YOUR WEDDING DATE Payment & Terms: A deposit of 30% is required to book your wedding package. Dates will not be held or secured without payment of a deposit.

Sales Tax Prices listed on this page do not include sales tax. Sales tax will be added to all purchases.
Photography Coverage : When planning the amount of coverage for your wedding, "hours of photography" begins when the first photos are taken and continues for the entire time while the photographer is on site.
Additional Coverage & Rehearsals: Additional hours of coverage on your wedding day may be purchased with any package at the rate of $100 per half hour, $175 per hour. Eight hours is generally enough time to capture everything, from the bride getting ready to the reception. But if events are more spread out than normal, you might want to consider additional time.
If you are interested in having your rehearsal photographed you should indicate this when you book your date so the time slot can he held open. Rehearsal coverage is generally $275 if combined with a wedding package, plus any travel charges if applicable.
Rates for additional full or part days are available upon consultation.

If you wish to have your prints or album sent by US Mail or UPS you will be charged for the cost of shipping. Wedding prints can currently be sent to any US address for about $9 Priority mail and albums are roughly $15.
All prices are subject to change and packages shown on this page may change at any time. Any price or package changes after you book your wedding will not affect your wedding. You are guaranteed all prices that are in effect at the time you book your wedding date.
All items included in your package must be redeemed within six months of your wedding. All items that are included in your package, including album and print allowance, must be ordered and redeemed within six months of the date of your wedding. Any remaining or unused allowance will expire six months after your wedding.
Photo CD CD will include all of the pictures provided to you as printed proofs. Full Copyright of all images on the CD can be purchased for an additional $200. This allows you to print and distribute all images as you please. The photographer may also use the images for promotional or advertising purposes. Photos on the CD are high resolution ( 300 dpi ) which is the most common resolution for commercial printing. Images will generally be sized the same as your proofs, either 4x6 ( the most popular) or 4x5, (upon request). With Wedding Packages 3, 4, and the Deluxe Package you will also be provided (upon your request) with up to 20 selected images in any size that you wish. All of this can be confusing if you are not familiar with working with digital images and prints - the best thing to do is to just explain what you want to do with the images and we will work out a solution to meet your needs.
Printing from your Photo CD: The JPG files on your photo CD are the exact same files used for your 4x6 wedding prints. There is no guarantee, however, that prints you make yourself or have printed from these files will look exactly like the prints that are provided to you in your wedding package. Color, clarity, brightness, overall quality, will vary depending on where the prints are made. These differences are due to inconsistencies in the way that different photo printers will interpret the color information in the JPG file. Low cost print houses (Walmart, Costco, Walgrens, etc) can often produce good quality prints but the color and overall quality will vary with each different printing machine and the way it is calibrated and maintained. To get the best results you should print the images with all automatic enhancement features turned off. The files are already color balanced and edited for the best appearance. If the software at the printer tries to enhance what has already been enhanced, you may get prints with inaccurate color and tone. The best advice, if you are having many prints made from your CD at a particular photo printer, is to have one or two prints made and compare them to the original prints provided by Gabriel’s Eye Photography. If you are satisfied with the prints then go ahead and get the remainder. If you are not satisfied with the results then talk with the print manager or try another location.
Online Wedding Gallery: All wedding packages include an online gallery of your wedding pictures so that you can easily share your wedding with friends and family worldwide. Web galleries are normally online within 15 days of your wedding. Following your wedding you will receive an email with a direct link to your wedding pictures. The images in your gallery will be optimized for web viewing and not for printing. Images in the web gallery are set so that they cannot be downloaded. Individuals can also contact the photographer directly to purchase any of the images in your web gallery. You may use the images from your web gallery in personal websites or community websites, such as Facebook. Your web gallery will remain online for approximately 1 year.
Wedding Albums provided with the packages shown above are professional high quality flush mount albums - 20 pages in length. A 30 page album is available for an additional $139.50. Prices for additional album styles are available upon request
Designing your Wedding Album: There are two ways to go about the design of your album (1) I creatively design the album myself or (2) you look through your 4x6 prints and send me a list of photos you want in the album. Either way works fine and your album will be online as it comes together and we will be in touch by email or phone and you can make suggestions or changes as the work progresses. Whether I design the album on my own or if you provide a list of shots to include, the costs of designing the album are included in the package price.
Black & White Prints: In general, any image can be printed in color or black and white. But the best black and white prints will result when the photographer knows in advance that certain images are intended for black and white printing. If you want your package to contain black and white or sepia toned prints just let us know in advance.
Comment on minimum number of wedding prints : In most cases the bridal couple will receive more 4x6 prints than the minimum number specified for their package. There is no charge for these additional prints and you can make the decisions about which ones to place in your album. Any additional prints will also be included on your photo CD.
Creative Techniques: There are wide range of creative techniques that can be applied to your photographs, subtle changes in color or toning, mixtures of black and white and color, and other artistic techniques. If you are searching for a certain "look" we can discuss the options available. There is generally no additional charge for creative techniques used with the wedding albums in Wedding Collections 2, 3, 4.
Destination Weddings: We are available for travel worldwide.
