Packages & Options

Here at Philip Gabriel Photography we offer a variety of packages and coverage options! Of course we are always flexible and love creating the perfect package and coverage that’s just right for your special day.

All of our wedding day offerings include…

  • Two main photographers

  • One assistant to the photographers

  • Nine hours of wedding day coverage

  • Private viewing gallery and online store of fully edited images

  • High resolution digital image download via your private online gallery

  • USB drive with all high resolution digital images

Having a more intimate affair? Perfect! We also have coverage options that have just one main photographer and one assistant. We can even cut down on the number of hours included if that makes more sense.

You may customize your package to include different size albums with different amounts of spreads to help tell the story of your wedding day. We also offer “parent” albums since parents want to be able to relive the day as well! Parents or Grandparents can also have all of their favorite memories right at their fingertips! These parent albums can be different from your album. Yep! They can select their preferred images. In addition to the albums, you can decide if you’d like prints to display throughout your home or to give to someone special.

Need something more?

We even have a “something more” menu with items such as engagement sessions, rehearsal dinner and engagement party coverage and for wedding day we can add on a fun photo station/Photo Booth with an additional photographer that will print beautiful prints onsite as well!

Is the 9 hours of coverage not enough? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered as we offer additional hours of wedding day coverage as well. We can stick around to capture your sparkler grand exit!

If there’s something you’re looking for that you don’t see, contact us! Whatever you need just let us know and we can create a customized package to suit your needs. We understand how unique each family and event can be. Most of us at PGP have been brides and grooms ourselves!

We look forward to hearing from you and learning about your wedding photography needs! Please call, email or find us on social media to chat more.

Do you offer Photo Booths?2023-07-19T19:38:26-04:00

We do! Our Fun Photo Station is not your average photo booth. It includes one photographer with professional camera equipment and lighting, on-site printing, backdrop & props, and a high resolution digital download of all the images via your online gallery. We definitely recommend having this fun addition to your reception!

Do you retouch and do other color adjustments & enhancements to all our images?2023-07-19T19:38:16-04:00

Yes and no! Every photo you receive will be fully edited and adjusted to the extent that you see on our website and social media. If you purchased an album or prints, all of your images will then be retouched on top of all the previous editing. While we soften skin, remove exit signs and flyaway hairs with our retouching, we don’t edit out moles, freckles, scars, etc. as they are permanent markings that are a part of defining you. If you would like to have anything specific removed or softened, we are always happy to accommodate. No request is an odd one!

Will you tentatively hold our wedding date without a retainer payment and signed agreement?2023-07-19T19:37:30-04:00

We do not hold/reserve dates without these two things given the nature of our business. We have limited availability and dates, so our bookings are on a first come-first served basis. That said, if we have had a conversation with a client and began the journey and we receive another inquiry for your date but you have yet to finalize things with us, we do our very best to reach out and give our prospective clients first right of refusal. Because we are a family business built off of relationships and taking care of our clients, we try to be easy going and flexible for you.

How far in advance do we need to book you?2023-07-19T19:37:18-04:00

This is a question we get often and a difficult one to answer. We always encourage our clients to make decisions as quickly as you feel comfortable so you can have the A Team you would like for your wedding. We are often booked 9 months to two years in advance, but given that we have an amazing team of like-minded and equally skilled photographers, we usually have someone on the team available.

Do you offer albums, prints, framing etc?2023-07-19T19:37:05-04:00

We offer a variety of products both in our packages and a la carte including handcrafted leather albums, prints & framing, canvases, metal prints, and more!

We are having a small wedding/eloping and only need a photographer for a couple of hours, is this something you offer?2023-07-19T19:36:57-04:00

Absolutely! We photograph many smaller weddings and celebrations throughout the year and absolutely love capturing the intimacy of the smaller celebrations. We are happy to customize and create a coverage option that best fits your needs and celebration.

How far will you travel to photograph my wedding?2023-07-19T19:36:44-04:00

As far as you will take us! Seriously though, while the majority of the weddings we photograph are in the Greater Philadelphia/New Jersey/Delaware area, every year we find ourselves traveling to other destinations such as New York, New Orleans, Jamaica, Mexico and more…

How many images will be delivered to us following our wedding day?2023-07-19T19:36:11-04:00

Typically we deliver 1000-1200 images. Every wedding day is different from the moments, length of time, etc which can play a big part in how many images we deliver. We don’t limit the number of images we take or deliver. We have delivered weddings with approximately 800 images and as many as 2000. If moments are happening we are photographing!

Are we able to share our photographs with friends and family and can they order prints, albums or other things from you?2023-07-19T19:35:56-04:00

Of course! Each wedding and engagement package includes a password protected viewing gallery with access to our online store. You are welcome to share the login info with whoever you wish, and they can easily order prints, USB drives, and other products directly through the gallery. We LOVE when clients share their images on social media!

What is needed payment wise in order to book with PGP? Can I pay with a credit card?2023-07-19T19:35:44-04:00

A check is preferred, but we do accommodate credit card payments as well. A $2000 retainer and a signed mutual agreement is all that is needed to book us for your wedding date.

Is it true that we get an assistant when we hire PGP?2023-12-12T13:21:22-05:00

Yep, you sure do! The assistant is in addition to the photographer(s). The assistant is with us to help with almost anything… gathering people for photographs, keeping the important details and group photos in check, helping with lighting/equipment, holding your flowers, helping with your dress, coming to aid the emergency with their tool kit… scissors, bobby pins, tide stick, crochet hook, etc.

Is having a second photographer an option?2024-04-09T09:50:58-04:00

Of course! You can even have a third or fourth photographer if you’d like! We have coverage options with one or two photographers. We are happy to chat with you about your day and help to see what might be best for capturing your wedding. All of our second photographers are equally as qualified as our primary photographers.

Given that you have multiple primary photographers at your studio, how will I know who will be photographing my wedding?2023-07-19T19:35:04-04:00

When you contact us, we check our availability on your date to see which of us is available and who would be the best fit for you and your wedding. When you book us, you are reserving that specific photographer we discussed with you. We always welcome our clients to speak with the photographer they are reserving prior to booking. Aligning you with the right photographer is most important to us!

Are engagement sessions included in your packages?2023-08-13T10:17:33-04:00

The engagement sessions are in addition to the wedding packages as over the years we have found that it is not something that every client wants. For those clients who are hiring us for their wedding we offer the engagement session at a discounted rate and can be booked at any time. They are a great way to get to know your photographer prior to wedding day!

How long does it take to receive our wedding photographs?2023-07-19T19:34:14-04:00

Within 8-10 weeks following your wedding day, you’ll receive a link to your online gallery where you can relive your wedding day memories, order prints and download your images.
