Info & FAQ

everything you need to know

So here's the truth. You might think you want just any photos of the day and it'll be fine, and anyone with a professional camera will do. Wrong. We hate to be cliche, but it's true: your wedding photo and/or video will outlast every Amaretto Sour served that night. They're the memory of that day, what you'll show your grandkids one day, and the beautiful images you and your family will so proudly display in your home. Aside from choosing each other, this should feel like the best decision you've ever made. It is an investment, and it's priceless. 

We know, talking about money is weird, but it doesn't have to be! We're big believers in being honest and fundamentally driving this company of ours from the goodness of our hearts. This is why we believe everyone deserves affordable luxury for their wedding day. So, simply ask, that's all it takes. If one of the pre-made packages doesn't seem perfect for you, we'll  create one for you. 

If you love the quality, service and style of Dolce Photography, but have a tighter budget, you can still enjoy the benefits that come with being part of the Dolce client family. When you choose an associate package, you're hiring an associate photographer for your day whose photography style is similar to Rosie's (they've been mentored and taught by her) and of course, fits the Dolce brand. All of your editing and product fulfillment will be handled by Rosie & our skilled editing team (shout out to Joanne)! Read about our awesome Dolce Associates on the team page. If you're interested in finding out more about the associates and their packages, contact us!
