We have a passion for capturing the moments that are special for you. A popular space-saving trend is to put together a photo storybook of the big event. Available in many sizes and formats to fit just about any budget.  Most of our packages include two copies of the book. One for the bride, and one for the mother of the bride, with additional copies available for purchase for a nominal fee.  So, family and friends that want one for themselves can get one, too. With photo books, they stay safely on a shelf, ready to be looked at when the impulse strikes. Easily grabbed in an emergency evacuation, and not subject to the perils of ransom-ware, hardware failure, or planned obsolescence.  Your unique story beautifully told in pictures and words.

Most of our packages also include high-resolution versions of all curated photographs on a USB thumb drive, suitable for printing at your leisure, without watermarks, at up to 5 x 7 print size from any lab of your choice, along with a copyright release for that purpose.

Enlargements  8 x 10 or larger, and special gift items can be purchased through our online gallery ordering system for an additional fee.

We can easily come to you for engagement photos. Utilizing our mobile studio equipment, we can shoot indoors in any weather, and digitally place you into any of our many spectacular background locations.

We have plenty of options for every budget. For a limited time, with the purchase of any Senior or Junior portrait session, I will throw in a free personalized ad copy for parents to use when you purchase an ad in your high school’s yearbook. Or, save some money and get wider distribution, post it on your social media.

Another popular add-on for our Senior portrait packages is a Custom Photo Book. It is a great keepsake that features more poses from the session in an easy to store album that is affordable and ideal for families with less wall space for enlargements. Here is a sample proof set for a 5×7 Senior Photo Book.

We create a personalized online gallery, complete with a custom personalized logo design.  We will even provide you with the high resolution flattened raster and vector graphics of the logo, upon request so you may use it on all of your invitations, save-the-dates, and decorations.
