Wedding Photography

From the first time you meet with us until the album is delivered, we take the stress out of at least one part of your wedding day. We start by meeting with you in person for a wedding consultation at your house, a coffee shop or a bookstore of your choice. We discuss the details of the day and what type of photography you like.

We really try to simplify our wedding photography pricing. All wedding photography packages include the following:

Bridal and engagement photo sessions
Fully equipped photographer with the latest digital technology
Coverage that begins 30 minutes prior to the ceremony
Online password protected wedding gallery
Each image individually reviewed for color correctness and cropping
Minimum of 500 hi resolution images on CD
50% discount on printing prices for bride & groom and parents

One or two Wedding Photographers?
If your wedding party consists of less than 6 people including the bride and groom and invited guests are less than 100, we suggest coverage with one photographer.

However if the party and guest are greater than above, we suggest two photographers. In larger weddings, there is a lot going on in a short amount of time. Having the ability to capture pictures in two places simultaneously is important for documenting both families’ properly. In addition the ceremony is covered from various angles with different lense types giving you more variety.

Additional options for your wedding photography

Prints all priced separately.
Proof books, Spiral bound photo magazines and bounded leather albums all priced separately. During our meeting, we will show you samples of each along with pricing.

Special Event Photography/ Sporting Event Photography

Capturing special events requires more than just the right equipment; it requires someone with the right eye, attention to detail, and the right attitude. Event Photography such as weddings, family reunions, sports, graduations or company meetings require that special touch and connection. Our goal is to capture the feelings and emotions of the event so years later you can remember the experience right down to the smallest detail. To accomplish this, the photographer has to flow and almost become part of the event. We want the group to be comfortable with us. At large events like weddings, our preference is to have both of us there. Capturing the event with two photographers gives you more coverage, variety and memories.…

Top 10 Techniques For Wedding Photography

Posted on May 29, 2017

In the photography profession, with the exception of “war photographers”, wedding photography is perhaps the most stressful occupation.

There is a lot to think about, particularly for newcomers to wedding photography.

Let’s dive in:

1. Turn off the sound on your camera.

Quite often, a ceremony is a quiet, emotional time. The easiest way to distract guests from where their focus should be – on the bride and groom – is with a ‘click, click, click’ of a camera. What’s worse is the sound of a flash going off. These can even be amplified if the ceremony is taking place in a large, cavernous place as many churches are.

2. Don’t forget the details.

The bride and groom spent a lot of money on the smaller things for their day: The bride’s shoes, the rings, the monogram. Don’t forget to memorialize these details for the couple. Set them up in a way that’s appealing aesthetically, such as the rings on the bride’s bouquet.

3. Flip over to continuous shooting mode.

The continuous shooting mode is a great way to capture a lot of movement, which is often the case later in a reception when everyone is getting their groove on the dance floor. When shooting in this mode, you have to know your camera. Different cameras have different circumstances when it comes to shooting continuously: Some take a predetermined number of photos, such as 5, instead of shooting until you release the shutter. Some cameras limit the amount of shots you can take in this mode. Make sure you have plenty of practice and knowledge.

4. Anticipate an exquisite shot at every moment.

When shooting photojournalism-style, you never know what’s going to happen next, which means the best shot of the day could be within the next five seconds. The key to being one of the best is always anticipating those moments and having the camera ready for them. Don’t miss a thing.

5. Don’t delete the mistakes.

One of the best things about shooting digitally is being able to re-shoot a photo that didn’t come out quite as you planned. But instead of deleting those mistakes, just re-shoot it. Later, when you’re scrutinizing the photos, you might find a gem in those “mistakes,” or you might at least be able to carve a gem out of the rough by cropping, changing it into black and white or adjusting it …
