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.

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

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...
