It would be my pleasure to provide you with a customized photography session like no other.  I enjoy working with families, children, brides to be, mommies to be, graduating seniors and especially newborns.  My {heart and soul} is in every photograph I take, and providing excellent customer service is of utmost importance. 

You can expect a complimentary consultation either on the phone, e-mail or in person discussing clothing choices, locations and style of the portrait session.  I'm happy to provide assistance in these areas as they are commonly asked questions.  I have lots of land, a pond, fences and a wonderful country setting or you can choose a location that you prefer... an urban setting or perhaps your backyard or front porch.  Every session will be unique and different according to your tastes and preferences.

 I love being a mom to our four beautiful children and a wife to my amazing and talented husband (who often assists me as a second shooter on weddings).    We make a great team, and I love working together.  I look so forward to talking with you, and discussing your photography needs.  Until then....  : )

$2495 complete package

Many photographers post a 'teaser' price and try to up-sell you to their more expensive packages.  We offer a complete package at an affordable price, which includes items that most don't even offer.  All of the below is included:

Wedding consultation

We offer a free initial consultation to discuss how we can capture your wedding day in all it's glory.  Once you decide to hire us, we will have an in-depth meeting to develop a plan, and work on the customized shot lists.

 

Venue pre-visits

We always visit both the wedding and reception sites before the day of the ceremony.  This allows us to plan out shots and locations so that we can make the most of the time we have available for photos.

Two shooters 

The most important day of your life will be captured by two photographers, making sure that nothing is missed.  We will be able to cover more angles and have redundancy that would overcome any mechanical issues.

Photo USB drive with 400+ professionally edited images

You will receive an archive quality DVD disc containing full resolution copies of all of the selected images.  All of the images are professionally adjusted and edited like the photos you see in our wedding portfolio.  We will also archive your original photos indefinitely in several places in case your disc is lost or damaged.

Black and white copies of each photo

Sometimes, it is hard to know which images you want to print or share in black and white.  Your image disc will have a separate folder containing professionally rendered black and white copies of every photo.

Online gallery for viewing and sharing

As soon as we have edited your photos, we will place them in a personal online gallery.  From there you can order prints or share them with friends and family.

 

Wholesale online print ordering

This is a great feature that many photographers don't offer.  We allow you to order as many prints and other products from our lab using your online gallery at WHOLESALE prices.  Please don't go to Walmart to print your beautiful wedding photos!  For about the same price, you can have them printed through our lab on archive quality paper, on machines synced to our editing monitors, making sure the color is perfect.  We also are able to upload another copy of the photograph if the cropping you choose is different, as we manually adjust and approve all orders before they are processed.

Video HD slideshow of the wedding set to music

The more ways you can experience and share the beauty of your wedding the better.  We create a beautiful HD video slideshow on DVD, Blu-ray and for online sharing.  The highlights of the day are set to music with studio quality production.

Hardcover 30 page wedding book

This is the traditional format hardcover book to prominently display on your coffee table or bookshelf.  The large format 12x12 book includes 30 pages, and you can add more if you wish.  You can preview the design before it is printed, and order extra copies for very reasonable prices.

iPad photo e-book

If you have an iPad or other tablet, you will really enjoy having an e-pub fixed format e-book to view on your device.  The images look spectacular on the iPad retina display.  The book can be shared online with friends and family and live on in cyberspace forever!
