I would be touched and truly honored if you would consider me for your magical day!
Beth,· Married on 10/06/2018; "Fantastic job!! Great guy. Fun personality, fabulous photos.
We had met with another photographer before Don and really didn't click with him. Once we sat down with Don, and got talking, we knew he would be great for our wedding. Very easy going. Fun personality, always smiling. He a lot of fun and great ideas for photos. The professional photo booth was awesome!! Loved getting friends and family in there. Don was very quick on getting our photos to us. Cant believe all the shots he got. Some I didn't know he was even around for. Seemed like he was everywhere all at once. We highly recommend Don for anyone's special day. For everything you get, you cant beat the price or the friendliness!! Thanks Don!!"
As you will see, I offer very competitive prices and my award-winning quality far exceeds my fees. This alone sets me apart from many others and can help your wedding budget. You will read in my reviews that I am pleasant, enjoyable, and easy to work with. My photography leans toward a more artistic slant while remaining magazine-worthy. I would be delighted to meet with you in person to discuss your big day and the look you desire.
First and foremost, your wedding day should be delightful and memorable. My experience of photographing over 190 weddings coupled with my sense of humor can help reduce your nervousness and ensure that you have a fantastic day with hundreds of great photos. You focus on yourself and I will capture the memories. If desired I am more than happy to assist with posing.
To explain my services: I will, of course, capture all your big moments: the kiss, cake cutting, tossing the flowers, dancing, etc. I bring my laptop to display a slideshow of your wedding photos at the reception on a monitor. Besides taking, typically, over a thousand photos, which I edit, I also answer questions as they pop up during your wedding. I will send you wedding/reception day timeline examples to help you plan your day along with tips and a list of possible poses for your review. I typically send the disk to you within two weeks of your wedding and archive a copy of your photos in case yours are lost in the future.
Your reception will feel like a red carpet royal event with my take on the traditional photo booth. Optimal lighting created by two Aurora Orion lights with soft-boxes, makes for high-quality and perfect snapshots for you and your guests. Family photos are often a favorite as my photo-booth can accommodate larger groups of people comfortably. Rest assured, the joy that people get from the traditional photo-booths will not be forgotten as I provide an abundance of props. I come prepared with an ornate frame, old Stetson Saxon style 1940's men’s hats and some crazy fun sunglasses, along with typical photo-booth props, too. I supply portable backdrops for your choosing. My photo-booth is classy, producing a keepsake of quality for your guests; check out my website album for examples.
I offer engagement and/or save-the-date sessions. I highly recommend the engagement sitting. It is a good time to work together, practice your poses, looks, expressions, and posture to help you obtain excellent wedding photographs.
With any package I offer, you receive full size, high resolution digital photos with copyright release. The gold package includes professional digital enhancing for eighty 5x7 photo enlargements, which are all organized into an Italian leather album with archival quality pages. This package also includes: two 16x24 enlargements or five 8x12 enlargements of your choice, with album pages.
Visit my website to view photo albums, a calendar of booked and available dates, testimonials, and all my photography options described in detail. I use 2 Nikons D300, D3100 as a 3rd back-up, two Nikon speed-lights, a Nikon AF-S 70-200 f/2.8 ED VRII lens and a Nikon 1.8f 85mm portraiture lens.
Nothing is ever rushed with me as your photographer. I take the time to make sure you are delighted.
