As much as that's possible, yes. As long as Dan doesn't regrow his appendix we should be fine!

Never more than one function per day. We want to be totally focused on each client.

Besides having more than one photographer on staff, we are members of local and national photographic societies. In other words we have lots of photographer friends...

Professional level Cannon's and lighting. We've also had use for needle and thread on occassion.

Typically we base our day on up to 10 hours. As storytellers we want to chronicle the entire event.

We rarely see that happen. In any event those clients almost always have built a custom package.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We really only break to eat, but of course we keep our eyes open to make sure we aren't missing anything. That's why we prefer to eat in the room where possible.
Do you charge for travel?
Only if an overnight stay is required.

In most cases.As professionals we are best qualified to achieve maximum results from the files we created.

Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, they are posted after the couple receives their proof album and remain for 6 weeks.

We offer a wide variety of albums from traditional to digitally designed and matted or flush mounted. We can go totally custom, we even have an album covered with a pair of jeans!
