Wedding Packages and Information

Wedding photography is not something you can just "re-do" if you don't get the perfect image the first time. It is a one-time event and is extremely special to the couple and their families. A professional photographer has expenses, experience, and equipment that cost a lot of money. Educate yourself on photography enough to be able to spot the difference between an amateur or "photographer" using a consumer camera and cheap lenses, and someone using real professional gear (and knowing HOW to use it) and who understands lighting. The individuals who have the pro gear, and the expenses and experience to go along with it will be charging more than $300-$500 for a wedding.

If you expect to get magazine quality photography for $300 you are kidding yourself.

We are dedicated to making your dream weddig a reality, whether you have a $2000 budget or a $100,000 budget. These are just our recommended packages and A la Carte options. We can work with a couple to come up with a package that suites your needs.
