Services and Pricing


This is that day every bride dreams of and we take great pride in being chosen to spend the day with you and document this important occasion in your life. And we truly enjoy witnessing the union of two individuals and the blending of two new families. The creative bride & groom session is our opportunity to produce some of the most creative photos of the day and usually ends up being the images our couples love and appreciate the most.  The more time we have, the more creative we can be so we strongly advise our brides to factor in sufficient time into their wedding day timelines to accommodate an un-rushed bride & groom session.  


The engagement session is a perfect opportunity to get acquainted with our couples and build a trusting relationship in a casual setting before wedding day. It also gives you a chance to gain a level of comfort being in front of the camera and become familiar with the way we interact with you to create amazing, yet natural & intimate images. Let us know if there is a particular location that is special to you or if you want to incorporate a theme or specific look into your shoot.  We are always open to your ideas and anything we can do to capture the true personalities and uniqueness of each couple.


Your wedding photography will be one of the most important decisions you make. Your photographer will spend more time with you on wedding day than any other vendor and your images will be the single most referenced element to remember your special day for many years. Our pricing reflects the level of quality, service, and overall experience you can expect from M. Clay Photography. We've found that most brides want at least two things from their wedding day....awesome photography and a disc of their images. So we offer basic wedding coverage beginning at $2,200 which includes 6 hours of wedding day photography and a DVD of fully edited, hi-resolution digital images. Brides can add/customize selections to suit their individual needs or choose from several collections which include popular options. Feel free to contact us for more detailed pricing.


We also offer a full range of portrait services including families, kids, seniors, and professional headshots. Visit our Portraits Website for more information
