tears in the wedding

We recently moved to Southern Indiana. While in Northern Illinois I worked with as many as 42 couples in a year and saw many friends and family referrals over the years. The introductory pricing is reflective of being new to the area.

If you are on this page, chances are you’ve never been married and you’ve never shopped for professional photography before. The truth is, if you got by with what you originally perceived to be a bargain, but you didn’t like your pictures, you won’t be happy. I have worked with packages and with a la carte pricing so there are options for you. What I hear time and again is that what I’ve offered

has been a great value for the investment the family has made. For this, I am grateful to provide my photography services to well over 300 couples.
