For What? Where? When? Pricing isn’t meant to be complicated or pull wool over anyone’s eyes. My fees can be either hourly or at a flat rate depending on the situation. However, unless you’re my mom, I’m sorry but I won’t be able to do your photos for free! I am happy to help charitable organizations and non-profits when I can.

Ok, I'm getting married. Give me a ballpark, Yetty. What am I looking at?
For weddings in the Twin Cities area and surrounding suburbs, I charge an average of $2400. This includes everyone getting ready in the morning, till the last of the events at the reception (first dance, father-daughter, mother-son, bouquet-garter toss) It could cost more, could cost less depending on the situation and any accommodations that must be made. (Travel, Hotel, Food, Etc.) I require a $500 deposit (non-refundable, but taken off total balance) to “save-the-date,” 50% 6 months after booking, and the rest is due 1 month before the wedding. I usually prefer to take care of payment before the Big Day comes, it streamlines the process and prevents me from chasing you down on the dance floor for a check; I also offer discounts for paying early. I accept cash and all major debit and credit cards.
What do I get for the money? My cousin was going to do it for free.
Obviously you don’t trust your cousin, or you wouldn’t be reading this right now. All customers receive finished, full resolution digital files, I have no reason to hoard your wedding memories or senior portraits. Joseph Yetman Photography, LLC retains all rights to said photographs, but customers are able to print their own pictures if they prefer and use them however they see fit. If for any reason, you reproduce photographs to collect revenues, then we need to have a conversation. Every client's portrait session is available in an online gallery where you can view the photos and download the full resolution copies right from the website. You can also opt to receive a CD or upgrade to a Custom Engraved USB Flash Drive (Included in wedding packages). If that isn’t a tremendous value already, then revel in the fact that you’re hiring a professional that truly has your best interests in mind.
Is there anything you don't photograph?
Is that a rhetorical question? I feel comfortable photographing just about anything, except… brand spanking newborn infants. I don’t have any of the cutsie knit hats and wraps, and quite frankly, I have several other colleagues that do a much better job than I. So, if you’re looking for newborn photos, I can provide you with a list of excellent referrals. In the meantime, I’ll stick to my bread and butter; Weddings, Corporate Events, Senior Portraits, Pet Portraits, Commercial Photography, Boudoir, Landscape, you name it. Want me to go to Africa? Sure, the more excitement the better. I recently photographed a wedding in Lake Bled, Slovenia; one of the most beautiful places in the world. I absolutely love destination weddings.
Can you provide a Second Photographer if requested?
Of course! Although I am a one man show, I contract with several gifted photographers to fulfill any needs my customers may have. They are professional, personable, and safe. Add a second shooter to any event for $40/hour.
What's this I hear about a referral program, you'll give me $50?
You heard right. Refer a friend that books a full day of wedding photography with me, and I’d be delighted to give you a $50 VISA gift card. I’ll even take $50 off the happy couple’s wedding deposit.
