From a wedding to a group picture to an on-location photo shoot, I am there. I work 365 1/2 days a year, so that means I can be booked any time on major holidays, including New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Please see a copy of my contract and package price list on this page.
Many people opt for the cheapest photographer...bad idea, everyone! You often get cheated out of QUALITY when you go way cheap. You can only work for so little before you start sacrificing qulaity!
You might get all the "extras" at a cheap price but what do the pictures look like? I am all about the basic PICTURE. You keep your photo memories for the rest of you life, long after the fancy albums and fad coffee table books get dusty and disintegrate at the back of cluttered cabinets.
I may not be the absolute cheapest these days but I offer a competitive, REASONABLE price and I spend HOURS editing so your pictures look the best thy can be AFTER I take good shots to begin with! Time is money so if I wanted to include the extras, my prices would skyrocket. And really, what do you do with your pictures now? Post them on social networking sites, email them, frame for wall displays or for your desk...when was the last time I saw an actual wedding album? It might be a decade ago.
My specialty is realism. I prefer the "National Geographic" photojournalistic style instead of the posed and contrived look, though I usually include posed photos of whatever you like. I will also take requests of whatever you want, whenever you want.
Gift certificates are also available and do not expire.
I require a 50% deposit and a contract signing to book your event date. The remaining 50% is due on or before your event date. Photos should be returned to you approximately 2 weeks after your event. I usually send picture previews via email after the event date.
Payment methods accepted are cash only. I also accept credit cards, bank transfers and e-checks via Paypal, but THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL FEE FOR THIS SERVICE! If you have a Paypal account, log onto paypal.com. My email address for paypal payments is firstname.lastname@example.org
ABSOLUTELY NO CHECKS!!! SORRY.

All packages include 4x6 photos in a photo album and a CD with everything on it. The CD gives you a lot of versatility. You also have a hand in the creative process. You can copy, enlarge, alter each picture, and send to family and friends via email. CD only packages are also available with no prints or album. I also send you a copyright release letter so you are able to copy or enlarge pictures at the photo processing location of your choice. Depending on the size and duration of your event, I recommend the following packages for portraits, parties or weddings. I will stay for the duration of your event, including pre-wedding preparations, wedding ceremonies and receptions, and also rehearsal dinners if you have one. I do not charge by the hour so there is no need to worry about running out of time. You are GUARANTEED this many photos in a package, but you always get a whole lot more at no extra charge.
