good to know

  • Tell me about your pricing?

    Pricing for Adam and Melissa starts at $3,300, and for Riley $4,000. Let’s chat to discuss options and put together coverage that best suits your festivities.

  • Tell me more about tintypes

    Tintypes date back to the Civil War era and involve exposing an image directly onto a metal plate. These days they’re pretty rare – I’m one of only a few people in the country who make them – but they’re absolutely stunning, and each one is unique. They’re also the perfect way to commemorate a major milestone, so I include a tintype portrait for each of my wedding clients. Want to find out more? Click here!

  • when will we get to see our photos?

    Wedding images take around 6-8 weeks to get all polished up.

  • how many images will we receive?

    I try to present a complete story without lots of duplicates… which usually means 400-500 images.

  • do you have insurance?


  • do you have backup gear?

    Yes, indeed! Lots of it!

  • can i talk to references?

    As many as you’d like!

  • tell me more about your photobooth

    Glad you asked! I’ve got a one-of-a-kind photo booth that’s sure to be a huge hit with you and your guests! Click here for more info.

  • do you offer engagement portrait sessions?

    Definitely – both tintype and film/digital portrait sessions.

  • how many weddings do you shoot?

    Because I work closely with my couples to give them all the attention and creative energy they deserve, I limit my wedding bookings to 25 a year.

  • why do you make your own prints?

    Because I have yet to find a lab that can offer anything approaching the beauty and timelessness of a handmade print on heavy matte papers.

  • do you take credit cards?

    Certainly (though we small business-owners always prefer a check if it’s all the same to you).

  • how do you give us our files?

    I deliver all high-resolution .jpg files (along with your print release and instructions) on a custom USB drive. You’ll also have access to a private online gallery that makes it easy to share your images with friends and family.

  • so how do we book you?

    Once you make the decision to work with Riley MacLean Photography, all you need to do to reserve your date is submit a $1500 retainer and your signed agreement.
