Our Package Info




  • 2 PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR THE WEDDING DAY {starting from getting dressed and staying through an hour of party & dancing time. Typically 7-8 hours but we will make a custom timeline for your day} We do this a little differently because every wedding is unique and we want to cover everything so there are no hourly packages or overage charges. :) Let's talk about your timeline!


  • FINAL, EDITED DIGITAL FILES WITH PERMISSION TO PRINT {Images will be loaded into an online gallery for you to download original size files. You can print, post, share with family & friends, and use them for life! There isn't a limit but average weddings yield about 1,000 final pictures.}


  • ENGAGEMENT SESSION {One hour session with images in a gallery to download and use as you like. You will be able to print and post them. There isn't a limit but a typical engagement session yields 150+ images.}

Included at no extra cost:

  • Mary's mad bustling skillz -- yeah with z. 

  • Seth's 6'5" height to light tall candles and reach stuff

  • Mary’s bag of items like scissors and tums and knowledge of tricks to keep your day moving smoothly

  • Fun games and activities to get even the least photogenic person to smile and keep photo time FUN!

  • Organized and efficient portraits with wedding party and family wrangling from our years of experience directing even the drunkest of groomsmen and crankiest of flowergirls

  • Access to private Facebook group with tips, ideas, sample timelines, & vendor recommendations 

  • A beer. Is that legal? Can we buy you a beer? Wedding planning is exhausting. You need a beer. Or margarita. OR BOTH. :)

A lot of people ask about discounts. What’s the harm in asking, right?

Here are the only discounts we offer: Friday/Sunday weddings are $3000.

Off season Weddings are $2600.{ January-April}

We keep our pricing the same across the board to keep it fair to those who simply didn’t ask.

If you do not want an engagement session, we will give you credit towards an album.




We truly want you to have the BEST.DAY.EVER. We work really hard to not only capture all the memories of the day, but to keep things running smoothly and everyone having fun.  For example I saw this groom (above) dancing while holding his jacket so I asked to take the jacket and put it on his chair. I have switched shoes with a bridesmaid who forgot hers. I have sewn, glued, taped, and pinned more wardrobe malfunctions then I can type. We work to ensure your wedding is perfect and the pictures capture the fun and love that surrounds you on that day. We want you to have beautiful pictures, but even more, we want you to remember the day being stress free and fun! Every wedding we are complimented about how fun the picture time is and how organized and smoothly it runs. That is HUGE to us because we work really hard to get genuine emotion from everyone by eliminating stress and chaos enabling us to see everyone's joy and excitement for the day. 



Our goal is to document your day as it happens. We are your little paparazzi and besties for the day. We aim to capture the relationship between you and your new spouse but also with your parents, friends, and everyone who gathers to celebrate your marriage. I love seeing shots like this ring bearer with his grandpa (above), or your brother dancing with his daughter, or even your college friends busting out their signature dance to "BYE BYE BYE". (That happens.) While we will take pictures of the shoes and flowers, our goal is to freeze a moment in time with the people you love the most. We love seeing moments that you didn't even see at the time. One groom, when looking through the pictures with his wife, said, "I don't remember them even taking this many pictures. Those two are straight up ninjas." And we think that sums it up: 

Seth Morris Photography :: STRAIGHT UP NINJAS

Recently this bride wrote this review on our facebook page and I wanted to share it with you: 



My husband and I just celebrated our 1st anniversary and I still look at our photos daily. If you’re reading this review, then you know that photography is one of the most important decisions in planning a wedding. It is an investment – not only financially, but in how you will remember your special day. Before selecting a photographer, I did a lot of research: I read reviews (all positive), met Seth and Mary at the Starved Rock Bridal Expo (lots of laughs) and talked to Mary on the phone (all my questions were answered). I even saw them in action at one my best friend’s wedding. No other photographers in central Illinois offer the experience, reasonably-priced packages and style of Seth and Mary Morris. 
On our wedding day: Seth and Mary were respectful during the ceremony – no one noticed the photographers were there. They were patient but knew when to take charge and made sure all of my ‘must-have’ photos were taken. Did you know you will get a custom timeline for the day? Unlike other photographers who limits you to a number of hours, Seth and Mary stay until the day is captured. 
We chose Seth and Mary because we appreciated their natural style – capturing the real moments. At the ceremony, my husband I didn’t plan to do a receiving line, but after the processional, a line formed. At the time I didn’t realize it, but Seth was behind us and he captured the reactions – tears, laughter, hugs – of everyone greeting us. These are some of my favorite photos! Not only did Seth and Mary capture the moments I didn’t think of, but the ones that I needed – like when my mother handed me the ashes of my late father to walk down the aisle with. I treasure these photographs. And I have taken every opportunity to use and share them. You will too!  -Hannah Lamore

And this bride recently called us her wedding fairy godparents and that is just the greatest compliment of all time. 


Engagement Session

engagement picture collage.jpg

Having an engagement session serves many purposes but ultimately, it is just capturing a moment in your life: an important stage where you plan a marriage & dream of the life ahead. Seth and I didn't have an engagement session, but instead opted for his mom to take THIS  picture of us in matching american eagle flannels in the living room. BUT STILL looking at that sepia picture makes me nostalgic for that time when we were young, stupid, & obsessed with each other and truly had no idea what we were doing.

Engagement sessions are fun and laid back. I know, I know. Your fiancé doesn’t like to take pictures. This is true of just about everybody. Look through our facebook page. These aren't special, picture-loving people. They are just like you, but they had fun. So it won’t be THAT BAD. We try to keep it relaxed & not over pose you. I will shout instructions on how to stand & where to look, but ultimately you will interact with each other and that's the picture we want. We will do some traditional “looking at the camera” & some looking at each other or playing silly games as we wander around a cool location.

We have so many neat, unique places we like for engagement sessions so we can brainstorm some spots depending on the feel you want for your pictures. The included engagement session must take place close to our house otherwise we do charge a small fee to cover parking or an extra hour or two of a babysitter. The session typically lasts about an hour & if you want to change clothes, that's fine. An engagement session is a great time to get some pictures together, get to know us, and get a glimpse into how the posed picture time will be on your wedding day.

If you don’t need an engagement session, you will receive am Album Credit. 




Added to contract: 10x10 {20 page} - $400 // 12x12 20 page - $500

Albums are designed based on your favorite images. Typically includes about 50 of your favorite images chosen after you receive your online gallery. I will send you a preview of the design so you can make any adjustments and changes and then once approved, I have it shipped straight to you. There are many cover choses as well as lustre or matte paper and those are all chosen by YOU!

You can always add an album after receiving your wedding pictures. You just pay the price of the album at that time. I can’t guarantee that the price won’t change. If the album is added to your contract, you are guaranteed today’s price.  So if you are sure you want one, I would recommend that you include it in your contract.



I know it's expensive and we hope that you will feel, like so many of our previous clients, that we were worth it. {Please read our reviews on facebook as that is where we ask for feedback.} This is our only gig. We are full time professional photographers, which honestly, doesn't mean that much. Anyone can make a website, buy a camera and slap on that statement. But we are members of the Professional Photographers of America & the Marriage Equality Alliance. We have high end nikon gear (and backups) as well as full coverage equipment and liability insurance. We have a network of amazing photographers with whom we all work together to back up each other in case of emergency. We have 10+ years of experience. Are we perfect? No. But we are experienced and we will try our damnedest to give you the best day with beautiful images for you to cherish for life. In 30 years as you look back through the pictures with your kids as they plan their wedding, I hope you relive the day and fall in love a little more remembering how you felt at the start of your marriage. Photographs are powerful in that way and we want to provide you that look back in time. So Let's talk....
