Larry and Cindy Black are a husband and wife team whose passion is to create and capture cherished memories of your wedding day!

Together, their easy going style, energy and enthusiasm about your wedding day comes through in their wedding photography!

They like to get to know the couple with a free no obligation wedding consultation where your wants, wishes, needs and dreams are expressed. Cindy is an idea girl who loves to help brides with challenges of weddings. Larry is the technical one.

Simply stated, we LOVE weddings and we LOVE what we do!

In addition to Photography, Larry and Cindy also offer DJ services. When you book both photography and DJ services you will save money and have one less vendor to worry about. Recently we had to set up 3 different sets of equipment for a Bridal with an outdoor wedding (yes it rained so alternate sites and reception were set up). Read less

Digital is what we do!
How many photographers do you work with?
Every wedding includes two photographers. A husband and wife team who LOVE weddings! We also have a third photographer who comes on the larger or more exclusive weddings. We call him "The Master" with over 800 weddings under his belt!
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Not as of yet! When at all possible we like to attend the rehearsal so we know the flow of your wedding day!
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes we do! My husband's daughter is a great photographer who specializes in children and has helped us many times.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Canon: We bring at least 4 cameras. Various lenses including a fish eye, portrait, 70-300 Long Lens, Remote flashes to add special lighting : receptions usually need this!
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely! With having 2 photographers there is always a back up! Hard to take coming down the isle and the moments before with the Bride & Father! Precious!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We can do both! Our preferences is to customize your photography package to your wedding dreams, needs and budget!
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes and this has happened! Usually $50-$100 an hour depending.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
No formal breaks. Sometimes we have a pow wow to make sure our settings are right and review the shots we've taken so we don't miss the shots requested by the Bride, Groom and families.

Case by Case basis. We love traveling to Richmond due to our grandchildren being there! Maymont Park was a favorite or maybe Myrtle Beach - we love Shag Dancing. We've even gone to Natrona Heights in PA!

With in 2 weeks, sometimes sooner. We always include displaying pictures taken prior to the wedding, ceremony (if allowed) formal shots at the reception! Always a favorite and surprises a lot of guest!

Online, proof disk are available for those family members who don't have internet or slower access. Printed proofs are available upon request.

Yes, unless otherwise stated.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. This is an option available.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes and ordering for guest. We usually like the Bride, Groom and immediate families to order direct from us so we can upgrade their prints to included finishes like FineLinen, Peeble, Brush Texture, Linen and the like!
What kind of albums do you offer?
Various! Our favorite is the Panoramic Flush Mount where design is unlimited. On the lower end is the LayFlat Storybook Press. For the wedding on a budget, we suggest the couple getting the disk of high resolution files and designing their own storybook. Several online vendors are available.
When will the client get the final album?
Once the couple selects the pictures they want in their album it takes several weeks for designing. The proofing process can vary, depending on the changes needed and wanted.

This husband and wife team are TOP NOTCH!!!! From the word go they were accomodating, flexile, so fun to work with and full of great ideas. My family and I were so impressed with Cindy and Larry. THey took so much time to get to know us. They had a free consultation to go over all the details in depth. We drove around scouting out various locations to do my bridal shoot prior to the shoot. We also scoured out locations to do our fun married shots on the way from the ceremony to reception. I can not say enough great things about them!! You will not be disapointed!!! Oh- they are very reasonable as well! My pictures are on their site- jim and bekah's wedding, if you are curious!

Bekah,

WOW! You are a darling! One of the vendors we met at a wedding in Hampton recommended us to try wedding wire. I was checking today and to my surprise you had left a review! Missed you Tuesday, need to get you your book. I will go ahead and create your disk of images.
