How many photos are included?
The number of images delivered from your wedding will depend on how many hours your package includes, and how many photographers are covering the wedding. A team of two photographers typically averages about 100 images per hour. However, we don’t offer any guarantee on a specific image count.
Do you accept credit cards?

How much does the average couple spend on Petruzzo Photography?
We offer three primary packages, starting at $2,999. However every couple is different, for many we create custom packages. Couple’s generally spend between $2,500 and $4,000 on their complete wedding photography services with Petruzzo Photography.
How far in advance should we book you?
We suggest booking 12 to 18 months in advance. Or 3 to 6 months in advance for elopements and courthouse weddings.
Can I do an engagement session before I decide to book?
Yes, of course. We have two options for that! You can join an Engagement Session Meet & Greet for as little as $50. Or, you can book a standard session and if you choose to book, we’ll deduct the price of your session from your wedding deposit. You can learn more about these offers here.
Some of Our Favorite Vendors
When we hired Petruzzo, him and his team were the most professional group of photographers I had ever spoken with. I truly believe that they absolutely love what they do. It seems to me that when they’re on site, it’s their mission to capture memories and not just take photosJordan & Diana
From the very start we immediately felt relaxed and comfortable with William. He was funny, responsive, and easy to communicate with. Throughout the planning, we always felt that William really cared about the meaning associated with the photos he would be taking for our wedding.Lauren & Steve
Petruzzo Photography did a wonderful job for our big day! William and Felipe were both very professional, helped calm our nerves, and delivered high quality photos. They were able to capture all of our candid moments that we are now able to look back at and enjoy, since the day goes by so fast. Our wedding album and 2 parent albums are really nice, genuine leather albums. I love them! I would definitely recommend Petruzzo Photography for your wedding!Katelyn & Joe
We did a scaled down version of wedding photography, just a couple of hours for our small group of family and friends. Our photographer for our wedding was Felipe Sanchez, and he was absolutely perfect.Samantha & Alex
From the Blog
In a sense, all photographers-of-people are necessary collaborators. I’m stretching the meaning of that word a little bit. What I mean is that the artwork they create always hinges on some uncertainty from the people they photograph. They have to bend and adapt their...
You know, a lot of us were raised in what were still the relatively early days of consumer photography. A time when fancy cameras were accessible enough to have a large base of hobbyists. Point and click cameras were easy enough to use that everyone wanted to, but a...
When you throw a wedding and a hundred or more people show up, the fact of the matter is, some of those people are going to grumble about something, and in all likelihood, you’re going to hear about some of it. That sucks, because you’d think those people could be...
You know, in all of the years we’ve been in business, I can honestly say I have personally liked probably 99% of our clients, and maybe more. Of course, I haven’t done any actual math here. But given how difficult it is to list people I haven’t liked, I’m confident in...
This is a question we get very regularly. Strange that I have not written about this until now. The question is not easily answered. While it’s true that we generally create between 20 and 60 finished images per hour, per photographer, you’ll see that we don’t make...
Late last year, Greg had the chance to skip the autumn chill with a trip down to Ft. Lauderdale Florida to shoot this beautiful couple's big day. Things started out leisurely, with Greg drifting from the Groom's room to the Bride's capturing whatever might've been...
So you’re going to get married. Congratulations! Lets take some stock of what this process is going to involve. I want to point out something silly about this industry, and offer you an opportunity to make the most of the time you have to spend interacting with it. A...
What’s the one decision that will have a really big impact on your wedding day? I am, of course, talking about the wedding photography decision. Not whether you should hire a wedding photographer (you should), and not what wedding photographer you choose (choose a...
Being a photographer is easy right? Just show up with a camera, take a few pictures, bing bang boom, photography! Right? Well, no. But you probably already knew that. What you probably don’t know, is just how much you don’t know. Lots of people, acquainted with a...
William & Felipe had an amazing time working with this couple during their wedding at The Barns at Hamilton Station in Hamilton VA. This was a December wedding and it was cold outside. William offered to work on some alternative portraits indoors, but they had...
William & Felipe had the pleasure of working with this couple on their wedding day at Linganore Wines in Frederick Maryland after nearly a decade of friendship. "It's always extra special when we get to be there to capture these kinds of moments for someone we've...
Here’s what I want you to know about wedding photography: It’s about 20% photography, and about 80% knowing when and where and how to interact with a wedding. This is why there are so many sad stories about couple’s losing their wedding photos to a friend or family...
