Investment and Specials

When looking for a Photographer, there are many things you must think about. In these days of everyone having a camera and believing then they must be a photographer, you must consider a few things, especially if they are going to take pictures at your wedding.

1. How long have they been in business?

2. Have they studied photography and/or have professional training?

3. Have they graduated from High School?

4. Have they worked in the area you are looking for?

5. Do they have references?

6. Do you like their style?

7. What are you getting for their price?

8. Do they have a contract?

9. Do they use professional cameras and lenses?

10. Do they have more than one battery for thier camera and plenty of memory for taking tons of pictures? (seems obvious!)

Let's have coffee and discuss the most exciting day of your life. We LOVE to travel so please think of us for your destination weddings.

If you are looking for a less expensive wedding photographer, you most likely will be looking for someone who is less experienced or unexperience and probably doesnt' have the equipment of a professional. Micheal can shoot weddings without me for a lesser charge, with our equipment, editing skills and the experience needed. Please contact us for more details.

Civil services (ie, getting married at a courthouse) start at $400 and include additional portraits taken after the ceremony nearby. 16x24 mounted print included.

Real Estate pricing is different per home, so please go to the contact page to ask for more information.

Editing such as minor blemish coverage, black and white tones are included. Dual tone images (black and white with a colorized area), braces removal, teeth or eye whitener, major blemish or hair removal, etc. are available at an extra charge per image, not per print. We also offer prints that are highly edited for a more intense artsy look. You will recieve (dual) rights for image reproduction. Your images will also be available on our ordering website for private, password protected viewing and ordering.
