CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!

 

I do offer a budget package/collection that is not listed on my website.  These are for small local weddings only (less than 75 guests and in Wichita KS Metro).  This package is $1,000 and is a reduced package from Collection One.  I only offer these to 4 couples/year.  10% OFF for any Active Duty Military and Full Time Public Safety Employees (Police, Fire, EMS).  20% OFF additional A La Carte purchases.

 

You do get what you pay for.  I'm talking about those "photographers" who offer such low prices and even offer a DVD of all of the photos taken.  They may have a camera but obviously not high-end quality equipment that your wedding day deserves.  Ask yourself if you want some snapshots of your BIG day or do you want some HIGH QUALITY IMAGES that will remind you how SPECIAL that day was in your life. 

 

I will assure you that with any of my packages (even the low budget package) that I put all of my creativity and effort into creating those HIGH QUALITY IMAGES that you want and deserve to get.

 

Let me tell you why I just don't "give away" images on a DVD. 

First of all, I have invested over $15,000 in professional photography equipment and training - not just a grand or so for a digital camera.  I then have years of experience taking photos of people, objects, landscapes, and many other types of photography.  Now, I have been known to capture some on the fly landscape and other types of photos with my cell phone camera but seriously, how reliable is that?  We aren't talking about "selfies" here, we are talking about a one-time one-moment memory that cannot be recreated without knowing that it was recreated.  Brides want photos of THAT day.  There is a new trend starting called the "day after" session.  But you know what?  Brides still want photos of THAT day. 

I then cull and select a predetermined amount (based on which package you chose) of images that goes into Post Processing in MY STUDIO.  I don't farm any post processing services out.  I process each photo myself to the correct calibration of my computer screen which is calibrated to the color and brightness specifications of the professional printers that sit in the professional print shop that I have chosen.  This assures me that what I am seeing is what is going to be printed. 

Other "discount" photo printing stores just cannot duplicate my creative vision precisely on paper.  Would you like all of your prints to come back with a greenish or reddish tint to them?  I don't think that you would.  That is just another reason why I have the responsibility and control over your prints.  I also want you to show off my work in the best possible way.  I wouldn't want some young part-time employee who knows little about the "ART" of the entire Photography Process up to and including printing.  I want a professional who can get consistant professional high quality results, every time.

I do understand that some of my clients do want to archive their digital photos on a DVD and to also get those photos optimized to view crisply so they can show on the web including social media sites.  So, I do offer digital files.

So, do you want some inexperienced photographer (equipment asside) to take your wedding photos?  Or do you want an experienced photographer who took years to build up their equipement and experience in the field, in studio, on location, on the fly, to get the best moments captured on a digital medium?  My cell phone IS NOT my backup camera.  (it could be my 3rd backup camera... lol)

I am trying to interview for a job to shoot your wedding.  So, look things over, ask yourself some questions, look at your budget, talk it over, ask me more questions if you like, check out other local photographers, check out photographer reviews, and then I hope that you are able to choose the best one for you on your wedding day.

Thank you for reading and may everything work out great for you.

**Updated Collection Packages Prices** I am a Wichita Kansas-based professional photographer. Currently, my areas of interest are anywhere from portrait photography to landscapes. I concentrate on giving my clients heirloom quality memories put into still print and social media. 316-247-1947 www.old81studios.com My creative vision is unique just like my clients are. Each session has it's own creative experience unlike a chain or "cookie-cutter" portrait shop (Those chains may advertise low prices to get you in the door but most of their extra costs end up being much higher than perceived - not to mention those buyers miss out on their unique & custom experience for higher-end custom photography). I have a creative and artistic style that my clients love! I spend the time with you and your family to give you the end products that will become an heirloom to your family and cherished for generations to come. I have many clients that come back to me year after year because they are more than satisfied with the final products and service that I provided them. I am not wanting to make a quick buck. I want to create the best possible images that I can and establish a reputation that continues to exceed many new emerging photographers. My portrait sessions are an investment. Invest in your timeless session today. You will be amazed. You will be satisfied. You will be happy.  Better yet, your wife will be happy!
