Can I view examples of your work?

Most photographers just want to show you their "BEST IMAGES EVER" with ideal you will gain a ton of confidence with us as you look through gallery after gallery and realize why we have the reputation for the best!

Yes, Parent's albums start at $75.
Do you sell Wedding Albums?
Yes, please call for details.
Do you guarantee certain shots?
Yes, we encourage every couple to make a list of "MUST GET" moments or shots, however you need to assign someone who is close to the family to "CHECK OFF" the list as you go. Whether these are shots during the family session or shots throughout the day, we need you to take the responsibility to make a list and have someone be in charge. It isn't practical for us to guarantee getting a list of people we don't know and can't identify. There are several generic lists on the internet. These are a great place to start, but we recomened getting MUCH more specific by listing first and last names of everyone and possibly relationships etc... Here is a good place to start.
Will you create a video or slideshow of life and growing up for us?
Yes, we would love to! The gold package includes a simple slideshow... but If you want us to actually creat the video it costs $350-$500 depending on if we need to scan, crop, enhance, and format the images... You can do an announced show set to music if you want, but we suggest you do not do this with one of our same day photofusion videos. So if you give us images on a jump drive with the file names in order (001, 002, 003 etc...) all cropped and ready to go with the MP3 files if you want them to music we will create a simple video for you at no charge... We just need this 4-6 weeks before your wedding with no exceptions please. If you ask us to do this within 2 weeks of your wedding there will be a $250 late fee. If we need to do any cropping, scanning, adjusting etc... There will be a minimum $350 charge. We cannot make ANY videos less than one week from your wedding day. You are welcome to make your own and show it using our screen and projector but we need you to clearly announce to your guests that you or someone else made the video.
