photo + film packages

Do you travel? If so, what is the travel fee?

I typically only travel within a few hours of Raleigh. I am open to travel but handle travel pricing on a case by case scenario.  

Where can I buy wedding insurance?

WedSafe. A WedSafe policy will protect you if you need to cancel your wedding for severe weather, sudden illness, lost/non-refundable deposits, vendor bankruptcy and more. *** 3/18/20 Wedsafe has temporarily stopped selling cancelation insurance policies. To call & ask about policies & coverage: 877.723.3933

Do we need a second shooter?

Yes. A second shooter is included in all my packages.

What if you get sick on our wedding day?

It has never happened, and I would have to be in the hospital to not shoot a wedding, but if it did happen I would have another professional videographer shoot in my place. I have connections with several amazingly talented videographers.  

If we select the photo + video package will we have a contract with Thomas Blake Films as well?

For your convenience, Pam and I have created one contract which includes detailed information about services with both Pamela Jahnke Photography and Thomas Blake Films. All parties will sign the contract.  

Do you backup your footage?  

Yes.  After the wedding I upload your memory cards to an external hard drive.

How long are the films?

You can expect about an hour of video if you choose the photo + video highlight package. This package includes a 4-5 minute highlight film, full ceremony, dances, and toasts. We also offer a photo + video feature film package that includes an 8-10 minute feature film. *Longer films are available upon request.

How are the films delivered?

Two ways: (1) The highlight film will be hosted online for convenient sharing with family and friends. 
(2) All films are also delivered to you on a flash drive for easy duplication by you. 

Are films HD? 


How long will it take to receive my film after my wedding?

We pride ourselves on delivering your film in a
timely manner. We officially quote 90 days, but it is often much sooner depending on the time of year.

What kind of equipment do you use?

Panasonic S1 cameras, a variety of high-quality prime and zoom lenses, tripods, drone, gimbal, and more.  

Do you offer aerial footage via drone?

Yes! We loving using our drone when the conditions allow. There is no extra cost for drone footage, it is included in every package.  

How is the music for the film selected? 

First and foremost, we want the music to reflect your personality and the vibe of your wedding. Second, we must select music that we can legally obtain a license for. Rest assured, you will get the final say in your music and your film. Once your film is complete we will send it over to you for your approval before ever sharing it with anyone else.

 I have answers for you!

Sarah Sterner, bride

"Pamela and her team were the most perfect thing about our wedding. From the moment I met her during my bridal portraits, I knew that she would care of every single detail at the wedding and felt so relieved. I have a lot of self confidence issues with certain parts of my body, and Pam was so sweet to ask me ahead of time to figure what I like and don’t like. She was extremely cautious of the poses and how the pictures were taken to ensure I loved myself in the end product. And don’t get me started on how sweet she is. Every single person at our wedding fell in love with her. She was with me from the beginning to the end. I would 100% recommend her to any other bride. Her prices are GREAT (I researched forever and was shocked when I found her) and she just makes you look/feel like the most perfect bride in the world."

Kylie Flanagan, bride

"Pamela was the nicest, sweetest, most professional, comforting and best photographer we could have ever asked for for our engagement shoots and wedding. The way she captured special moments between my groom and I was better than I could have hoped. She came early, was prepared, kept up with a timeline (making the day flow so easy) and was by our sides the whole night (never missing a shot). From the start of the day to the end of the night she was not only a pleasure to be around - but really took the time to capture the happiness and love we both felt. I did not think it was possible to cry anymore after the wedding - until we got our wedding pictures back! We cannot thank Pamela enough for being our wedding photographer, and we cant wait to use her again for more of our lives stepping stones. We highly recommend her!"

Lauren Hartnett, bride

"Pamela was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t have been more pleased! Photography was really important to us because it’s one of the few tangible things you walk away with after your special day. We chose Pam for her natural yet realistic style in photos. She keeps the beauty of the shot while not making it look too photoshopped/styled. After we hired Pam for our wedding, we did a trial run with some fall family photos to also double as engagement photos. We immediately knew she would do an awesome job at the wedding as she was so calm and easygoing. On our wedding day, she got all of the shots we wanted and I never had to worry. We got so many compliments from our guests that they rarely saw her yet she was always there to capture the best moments. We absolutely love all of our wedding photos and would definitely recommended her to anyone getting married!"

Noor Ahmed, bride

"I am absolutely obsessed with these photos! I can’t explain to you how much I love every single one of them! I am beyond grateful that you guys were able to capture this day for me. Your work is absolutely beautiful. Before contacting/booking you, I looked at so many other photographers work but truly no one compares to your work. I knew from the get go I wanted you to capture the day, and those pictures prove that I’ve made the best decision ever! It was awesome working with you on Saturday. You really brought the vision I had in my head to life, so I can’t thank you enough! I think people are getting sick of me because I talk and show the photos to everyone I know!"

Alexandra Mercel, bride

"Pam, I just want you to know how incredible we think these pictures are. I know I said it yesterday but my family and friends have been calling me non stop with "I've never seen pictures so beautiful" and "she captured everything about the day more perfectly than we could have imagined." So I just wanted to echo all this and say thank you once again. It is all so so so beautiful, I am literally speechless. You are so talented and we feel so lucky to have found you!"
