When choosing a professional photographer for your wedding, family, maternity, newborn, and beauty photography please ask question to make sure you are dealing with a seasoned professional who is highly skilled to produce the images that you will treasure for years to come. Here are a few things to consider and ask about:

  • Ask to see samples of albums they have created
  • How many weddings and portrait sessions do they shoot a year
  • How long have they been in business
  • Ask for three different references from the past two years
  • What products do they offer…prints, canvas, albums, custom albums
  • Do they print their own images
  • Are images professionally matted and ready for framing when delivered
  • How long before you can see your images
  • What’s the plan if there’s some sort of emergency and the lead photographer can’t get to the wedding
  • What professional training do they have
  • What industry organizations do they support and belong to (WPPI, PPA..etc)
  • Do they have a professional studio

Those are just a few of the things to keep in mind. Remember your wedding photography and portraits are going to last for generations…make sure you make a wise decision.

Maternity portraits are some of the most amazing and joy filled images that I have the honor of creating. Sarah and Nick came to the studio to save some these very special memories leading up to the birth of their first child. Over the coming months they will come to the studio several times as we work together to tell their fantastic story.

Kelci is just a blast to work with. She told me when she came she had not had photos made before because she just didn’t feel comfortalbe in front of the camera….OMG…from the first click to the last she was just a bundle of smiles and laughter.

Great Holiday Sessions – Portrait, Wedding, Family, and Glamour Photography

Every session at the studio is just so wonderful, and the friendships that are established are such a blessing. Roxanne came to the studio with three of her friends so that that evening. We had such a great time shooting, chatting, and laughing. I’m really looking forward to the next time we get to shoot again.
