Russ Konrad did a great job on our photos! They were beautiful and I love them. He is very reasonably priced and does a great job for the price he charges. The only problem I had is I had sent a request to him ahead of time for a specific photo and it didn’t get done. I forgot the day of the wedding and I was slightly disappointed I didn’t get that photo. Other than that though, he takes a great variety of photos and they turned out awesome!
Russ was a great photographer to work with. He was very professional about everything and I was very impressed by how organized he was. From the first meeting all the way through the finished product he was great at answering any and all questions I had even when I repeated them several times. He offers a great photography service and albums for an awesome price. You definitely get more then your money's worth with Almari.
This pair is just starting out with weddings. Though they have a long history of photography combined, weddings are a new thing... but they are working hard and gaining experience. Thus, the price is good! It was obvious they put a lot of time and effort into their work- and they have a good eye.
"WOW!! You guys were Great today! I can’t wait to see the pictures!"
We hear that comment at every wedding we shoot - and that is BEFORE the bride and groom have seen the
pictures! AFTER they see the images - they recommend us to their friends and relatives! The main reason that
couples love us before they have even seen our images is that we work extremely well with them, the wedding
party and their guests. We shoot in a very relaxed and casual style that makes everyone feel at ease and smile.
People who feel comfortable look much more natural and relaxed in the photographs!
Almari Photography was formed in 2006 by photographers Patricia Ganrude and Russ Konrad. After many
years of individual professional experience in different areas of photography including NASCAR photography,
portrait photography, commercial photography, and nature/landscape photography we have decided to focus
on producing amazing and beautiful wedding, senior, and family images.
We also have two associate photographers. Susan Behne and Sourygna Ku, in addition to their excellent
photographic skills, are in charge of our Senior Portrait Division. They are focused on capturing awesome,
unique, and very individual photographs for the high school senior. Susan and Sourygna also shoot weddings
with their own unique vision and artistry at the consistent high quality that has become the trademark of Almari
Photography. Lisa Heller and Jerald Baker are experienced photographic assistants who also shoot as second or
third wedding photographers when necessary.
We learned our craft on film cameras but have moved to the latest state of the art digital cameras for the best
possible pictures of your special day. We process, enhance, color correct and digitally edit every image that you
receive on your DVD-ROM, in your wedding album, and in your senior portfolio.
Even though we use the best software available extensively in the "development" of your images - we are first
and foremost PHOTOGRAPHERS! Our true artistry happens in the split second that we snap the shutter.
Our Wedding Packages start at $1000. EVERY wedding package is custom designed to meet your exact needs.
Please contact us for your custom price quotation. Session Fees for Families and Seniors start at $150.
Please contact us for more information concerning our packages and pricing.
Seniors - contact Susan directly at 952-457-6303 to set up your appointment and/or for more information.
We have several coffee table albums that contain ALL the images delivered to the happy bride and groom from the entire wedding that we can show you when we sit down to discuss your wedding!
