About Me + Pricing + FAQ

I believe in transparency. If you still have questions, shoot me a message.

Buddy Hallavant,

The Best Job on Earth:
Documenting Cool People in Love

1| Inspiration from energy: As a wedding photographer, I have the best job on the planet. Every weekend brings a new couple and a unique story – sometimes intimate and romantic, other times high energy and full of surprises. I view myself as a creative witness to my couples’ adventures, where I draw artistic inspiration from their energy. 

2| Candid and “effortless”: I am the photographer for couples who love real and candid moments. While there is always time for deliberately posed shots, I find my favorite photos come when couples are truly lost in the energy of their wedding day; so I encourage my people to engage with what makes them feel good.

3| Deep, authentic feels: Because my passion for photography comes from a love of people, my photography is naturally emotive and authentic. Often I hear shooting with me feels like just hanging out with a friend. I want my couples to feel comfortable in front of my camera and without worry about me “getting the shot”.

4| Contact me to get started:  Photography has become intertwined with who I am as a person. I am deeply dedicated to serve my clients with this love of mine. I believe happy people make happy photos and if you do, too, we really need to connect.

Not sure what you need? That’s super common.

I’ll offer options for you to consider without any commitment required. Schedule a quick call with me where we will get a chance to connect and I can learn about your wedding. 

Even if you don’t book with me, let me help you create or optimize your wedding timeline for better looking photography, like shifting your biggest moments to times when lighting is best for them. Skipping this task is risky business.

This is a complimentary service I offer to everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Roughly 500-800 fully edited photos for 6-8 hours of coverage. Of course, I often deliver many more than that.

They’ll be delivered to you in an online gallery for viewing, sharing, and downloading. You will have the freedom to print your photos from wherever you wish.

Anywhere. I’m always down for an adventure. I’ve shot all around the eastern US. My favorite places I have shot so far include Nashville, TN, Atlanta, GA, and Indianapolis, IN. 

Sure is! Your patronage supports my whole family. It’s a little spooky sometimes to realize our entire livelihood is tethered to my photography, but God is good and so we remember not to worry. [Psalms 23:1]

First and foremost you get my experience, my style, and my story telling abilities. You can expect hundreds of photographs with the freedom to print. And you will get to see a handful of the photos we take within just the first couple of days of being married (and maybe even the same day…)

Some wedding collections also come bundled with things like engagement sessions, prints, luxury albums, save the dates, and more. 

Where many try to cloak their rates until you speak with them, I’m here to help.

The average spend for my couples is just under $5,000.

My services start at $3,500.

Many clients choose to customize their wedding collection with specific coverage, additional photographers, videography, engagement sessions, custom wall art, and my signature heirloom album to keep their memories in. *Rates are adjusted up and down accordingly. 

*10% of our revenue goes to local nonprofits and outreach programs.

Remember! A quick chat is free-of-charge and helps me personalize and add value to your package.

Sure do. Did you know that if your photographer isn’t insured and causes damage to your venue that you pay the price? Yikes. While I’ve never had to issue a claim, having insurance offers me (and my clients) a nice peace of mind so my creativity remains unhindered.

A la carte options include engagement sessions, a second photographer, custom wall art, and my signature heirloom photo album.

After we setup a meeting in person or on the phone, you’ll receive a custom payment portal online where you can sign our contract, make the 20% deposit, and pay any subsequent payments via credit card. I also take checks if you prefer. Monthly, quarterly, and custom payments are available.

You have to say hello eventually 😛

Hey, one more thing! Do you have anxiety about contacting people? Have no worries- I don’t need fancy words and I’m not too busy for you. You could literally just say “hello”.
