About Me + Pricing + FAQ
I believe in transparency. If you still have questions, shoot me a message.
I spend my life creating for both myself and my people.
You’ll find me roaming the wild in a beat up pair of Converse on the hunt for epic photo locations. You’ll hear me chatting with strangers about their winding stories and you’ll probably see us taking impromptu portraits. You’ll spot me with laughing couples on location within sunny forests, cozy suburbs, bustling cities, and in the studio. Some of you will experience me smiling and waving my arms to craft perfect moments during your perfect day.
And then, of course, there’s the behind-the-scenes stuff. The hours digitally perfecting every image, the creation of heirloom albums and wall art, the phone calls to catch up with old clients, the blogging, the social media curation, and the networking and community with like-minded creatives.
My name is Buddy Hallavant and 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 its with great joy that I create unforgettable images for people by helping them engage in what makes them feel good.

Not sure what you need?
That’s super common.
Schedule a quick call with me where we will get a chance to connect and I can learn about your wedding. I’ll offer options for you to consider without any commitment required.
Even if you don’t book with me, let me help you create or optimize your wedding timeline for better looking photography (even if you don’t book with me). An optimized timeline shifts 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.
Roughly 500-800 fully edited photos for 6-8 hours of coverage. Of course it is entirely possible I 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.
Some wedding collections also come bundled with things like engagement sessions, prints, luxury albums, save the dates, and more.
I believe in transparency. Therefore, I am an open book. Where many try to cloak their rates until you speak with them, I’m here to help.
While I offer wedding photography packages, I utilize a unique a la carte style pricing for my clients so we can create a collection that fits them perfectly. Everyone is encouraged to customize an existing collection or build something entirely their own. These collections start at $2,500.
Many clients choose to invest more and enjoy additional wedding coverage, additional photographers, videography, engagement sessions, custom wall art, and my signature heirloom album to keep their memories in. The average spend for my brides is roughly $5,000.
*10% of our revenue goes to local nonprofits and outreach programs.
Get in touch with me to view my wedding collections. A quick chat 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.
