Let us document your moment

Wedding Photography Investments

At Mouse Island Creatives we understand that the decision on who to trust with your wedding day is difficult. We are known for our unique style of wedding photography, influenced by our individual creative backgrounds. Rowena’s abilities as a traditional artist and graphic designer teamed with Shawn’s talent as an author and weaver of tales blend to form a creative visual storytelling you will not easily find elsewhere.

Clean | Crisp | Colorful | Fun | Romantic

The devil is in the details and that is where we set ourselves apart from other photography studios. Based on a photojournalistic style, we are more than just wedding photographers. We are there to document the moments you experience as well as those of your friends and family. You will be surprised how we appear to be everywhere at one time, snapping your all-important moments as well as the reactions of your guests. We know you can’t see everything that is happening during your celebration, so relax, enjoy your day and let us capture them for you.

Nearly everyone has a camera, but not everyone is a photographer.

We are a society that generally carries cell phones everywhere with image sensors that rival many point and shoot cameras. These are fantastic for capturing images to post on Facebook, Instagram or your preferred social media. We do it too!

The difference between a professional photographer and somebody who takes pictures is knowledge and experience. We have invested countless hours into learning and perfecting our craft, mastering our cameras and equipment, and years working with a wide range of clients. We set our personal expectations high, pushing ourselves to schedule weekly test shoots and to practice under the worst conditions. When something unexpected happens at your wedding or event, we are ready.

We simply love what we do. We are incredibly fortunate to get to work our passion for photography and the biggest high comes from seeing the uninhibited smiles and joyful tears when we deliver the final images.

At Mouse Island Photography we purchase professional Canon Photography equipment in full frame and crop sensors because it makes our job easier, not because it makes us professionals.

“As a wedding DJ working with many photographers, it is my pleasure to recommend this business. Not only do they use the highest quality equipment but they know and understand the gear and use it to provide the best images. You have two photographers that will attend your event with different perspectives so the photos you get cover a deeper feeling of the event. They are also very easy to work with and always focus on the event and the guests to make sure even the most unplanned shots are documented. You can’t ask for a better team of professionals.”

Mouse Island Photography For Your Wedding, Engagement, or Elopement

Mouse Island Photography wants to be your personal family historian documenting all of your life moments. We don’t try to pass ourselves off as the best photographers in the world,  the best photographer is completely subjective and it would be arrogant to think we are the best. Our studio has a distinct style that fits some tastes and not others. As a studio, we are okay with this as every other photography studio in the world has the same situation. We don’t belittle other photographers to try to make our studio look better because frankly, we view them as our peers, not competition. We are happy to work with other photographers and part of our long-term goals at Mouse Island Creatives (The parent company of Mouse Island Photography) we plan to create educational products for creatives. Why would we put down the people we hope to work with for the betterment of everyone? Our style of photography is different than theirs and it is what makes us who we are.

Engagement & Wedding Photography Investment

We are approaching the midpoint of pricing for our New England market, but are still on the low side. There are some photographers in Maine who charge less and there are others in the larger areas of Bangor or Portland in Central and Southern Maine that charge much more. Engagement photography and wedding photography are investments. You are hiring skilled tradespeople to do a job for you. The price we charge is the rate our work is currently valued at. Not everyone has the same budget for luxury products like the services we offer. A Pinto and a Ferrari are both cars, but they are sold in two entirely different markets to entirely different clients. In the overall photography market, we fall close to the middle on pricing. Skilled photographers who are still establishing their brand and are not trying to maximize profits. Honestly, our 2018 pricing makes us a bargain. You can find less expensive and more expensive photography options and we encourage you to check out different photographers before you make your choice. Meet them, talk to them, make sure they are a person you can trust with your moments. Then come back and book us as long as our style matches your vision.

Your Wedding Isn’t in Maine? No Worries, We Can Travel to Your Destination Wedding

It is surprising that people worry about not being able to find the right photography team for their Destination Wedding. Are you one of them? Don’t worry, we are Destination Wedding Photographers who love to travel and will be happy to travel to your destination. At Mouse Island Photography, we are always willing to accommodate your destination wedding needs. We can see a time in our future where this is entirely what we do along with destination vacation photography. Our destination packages start with our exact same standard photography packages. The only additional costs we feel are very reasonable and include:

  1. Airfare for your photography team
  2. Baggage Fees
  3. Hotel accommodations (usually 2 rooms for 2 nights, but for longer events additional nights are required)
  4. A Rental car (usually for a 3 day duration)
  5. Vendor meals on the day of your event
  6. Per Diem: $45/day per photographer for meals on travel days and days not covered by the event

These additional fees cover your two photographers and an assistant that helps us with lighting and logistics of the shoot. No matter where you live or where your wedding is being held, Mouse Island Photography can be there to share and capture the memories.
