Something to consider when picking out your photographer…
When planning your wedding, your budget is very important. There are many lists online that suggest appropriate budgets for what to spend on your wedding, but those lists don’t take into account YOUR personal priorities. So before setting any budgets I suggest you sit down with your fiancé and create a priority list of what you both care about most for the day. After you do this, creating your budget will be so much easier and less stressful because you will know where you should splurge and where you can save.
The vendor you will likely spend the most time with — before, during, and after the day of your wedding — is your photographer. So before you review my pricing, I would just like to highlight the core values of Fucci’s Photos. I am ALL about giving you the very best experience possible. Every person who has ever reviewed me on wedding wire, yelp, or google, has given me a 5-star review. I will do everything in my power to make your event as fun and stress-free as possible so that you can enjoy it–from prompt email and phone call returns (both before and after the date of your event) to creation of a detailed shot list and schedule for the day to make sure you are getting exactly the shots you want in an organized manner, and helping to take care of any little “emergencies” that pop up with my Mary Poppins bag of a bridal first aid kit. I am prepared for just about every wedding challenge possible. I also memorize in advance all the names and faces of the members of your bridal party and immediate family members. And you get what I’m most well known for, to get those memorable in the moment candids you love on the dance floor, I get in the mix and dance with the guests while taking pictures. This helps them let down their guard which results in me being able to get pictures that are so much more fun and real. We also provide a same day iPad slideshow the couples and guests alike love to see during the reception. Teaser images are uploaded to Facebook within 24 hours of completion of your event.
I strive to provide my clients with honest upfront pricing, removing all hidden fees. The high resolution JPG digital negatives available to you do not have watermarks on them and grant you reprint rights allowing you to print your images anywhere you choose. To also make things easy for you and your guests, you can order a variety of beautiful products including high quality archival prints and canvas wraps directly through my website. Brides and grooms are given coupon codes for 10% off of all our affordable archival quality prints, and guests are given a coupon code for one free 4″x6″ print of their choice. High quality albums and gallery wraps are available as well.
Now that you have a better idea of what makes Fucci’s Photos so special, here is our basic pricing structure. We can also create collections that are tailored specifically to your needs.

In-Home Newborn Session
When it comes to newborn portraits, the last thing you need is to try to pack every baby thing you own into the car to travel to a studio session. Vail will come to your home to do a lifestyle session.

The session fee is $350. High-resolution digital negatives of the images from the session with reprint rights are available for $250. Be sure to book these sessions in advance while you are still pregnant. If your baby comes earlier or later than expected, session dates can be rescheduled. 30-40 fully edited images from your newborn session will be placed in an online gallery that you can share with your friends, family, and loved ones.
