2019/2020 wedding photography pricing


I’m Rodrigo – when I’m not shooting or editing I can be found usually at the beach with my family and dog.

I really enjoy surfing, it’s like a meditation to me and I always try to find time to get out in the ocean and catch a few waves.

I love the outdoors, hiking, last minute trips. I love Hawaii and the lifestyle we have here. Also the culture and how special these Islands are.

Traveling is another passion of mine. I hope one day to see every single country of this beautiful world.

I think marriage is awesome and feel blessed I get to document wedding days and all the meaning behind it with my camera for a living.

I’m a coffee enthusiast, craft beer lover, I’m a vegan, a father, a fiance, I enjoy listening to good music, I buy way too many records, vintage camera addicted.

Before we move on, in order to understand my art, aesthetics and style, please take the time to watch the highlight slideshow below.

“Photography is a love affair with life.” - Burk Uzzle

In a sea of wedding photographers (literally, so many), I’m honored you are considering me. Photo and video should be the number one investment priority of your special day. Photography and videography will keep your wedding day alive for generations to come. All the happiness, laughter, teared eyes, friends and family all together in one place. They will allow you to relive the day and cherish those special moments.

“If I was the sun way up there I’d go with love most everywhere. I’ll be the moon when the sun goes down Just to let you know that I’m still around.”

– Otis


Is the reservation fee/deposit refundable?

Since I reserved the time and date for your event the deposit is non refundable. If event is canceled within 3 months prior then there’s partial refund.

How do you accept payment?

Since my clients are usually far away from me I only take Credit card payment.

What do we do if it’s raining on our wedding day or engagement session?

For engagement sessions the first option would be rescheduling the session, if we can’t find a date and time that works for us a refund is issued. For weddings it means good luck :) Usually venues have a rain plan.

How many images can we expect from our engagement or wedding?

50 + images for an engagement session and 60-100/hour of coverage for weddings. I love to spoil my clients, though, so it’s likely you’ll receive way more.

Do we need a second shooter?

It’s up to you. I usually shoot solo and am able to tell the story of your day. However I like to put lots of focus on my bride and groom and not as much focus on the guests. If you want tons of photos of just the guests as well as different angles of the ceremony then a second photographer is encouraged. Remember, I can’t be at two places at the same time.

Do your prices include tax?

They do.

Does it cost to have you travel to our wedding? How much?

All traveling is included to the prices

What do you shoot with?

I use all full frame Nikon cameras - D810 along with a bunch of awesome glass such as 35mm f1.4, 85mm 1.8, 70-200mm f2.8 and many more, If you want to get technical let me know and I can send you a full gear list.

How do we pick photo locations?

No adventure is too far, and no idea is too big! I’m a traveler at heart and will go literally anywhere. I have a list of beautiful wedding and elopement locations I can share with you.
Plus I’ve done it a few times and I’d be happy to help you choose.

Can we order prints of your images or does that cost extra?

Sure can, I have access to professional quality prints that are delivered right to you door. You’ll get the instructions when you receive your wedding gallery.

Do you give unedited versions of the photos or the RAWs?

No sir! You’ll receive all of the photos that I took of your day, less any blinking, lame faces, or safety shots we may have taken. We fancy our editing style and never deliver any images that are incomplete.

Can we bring our dog?

Please bring your dog!

How long until we get to see our photos?

My turnaround time is in 8-10 weeks, but I tend to post spoilers on my Instagram page. I’ll let you know when they’re good and ready.

Does the photographer retain the copyright to the images? Does that mean we can’t share them?

By agreeing to the proposal and contract, you also agree that any images I take are copyrighted to Rodrigo Moraes Photography and that I have the right to use them to promote my services on my website and/or social media. If there is any image you don’t want shared for any reason, please let me know and I will most certainly respect that.
As for sharing them, please do! I love seeing what clients decide to post—it makes my day and is the biggest compliment I could receive.I do ask though, if you could refrain from re-editing, cropping, adding filters, etc.; I’ve worked very hard to edit your photos and make them look magical! Ps. I’d love it if you could tag me also!

Can you shoot JUST our engagement session if you’re not available for our wedding?

Absolutely! Shoot me an email and I can send you options and pricing for engagement photograph



This is so exciting!!! I’m flattered you found something in my stories that you liked and want me to document your wedding day! Next we will exchange a few emails – I’ll send you a questionnaire to make sure we are on the same page – After that contract and retainer invoice. Once all that is taken care of the time and date will be locked for your wedding day. I’m also available for a coffee or beer meeting or if you live off island we can do a FaceTime call. Great way to break the ice as you can ask me any questions you may have.



Can’t wait to create some magic in your wedding day!
