Hi all! As I previously posted my prices would be raising at the beginning of July. & Here we are at the beginning of July.

So far with my work I have meet people whom I now call friends, been invited to birthday parties, shared tears with births of their babies, been beyond graciously tipped & invited into your homes.

Let me start by saying how much I LOVE my work, I beyond love it & I hope that each of my previous clients can attest to that. But, I do have a family which consists of a 7 month old, a husband & a 4 bedroom home that has entirely too much stuff to clean ;) Not only that I babysit children during the week.

So let’s do the math here 7 day a week mom , wife,homemaker & babysitter. & on quite a few weeks a month doing 4 session  sometimes 5 sessions & maybe a wedding a week. Not only am I shooting those events but, I am editing all week long, making discs & sending them out!

This was a decision that was actually extremely difficult for me to make. I have fought back & fourth with this issue. But had to come to this price raise. Not only has my time gone up with my work {I edit,market, & shoot 24/7 & it has taken a great deal amount of time from my family, & uhh clean-ness of my home} but so has my equipment leaving me making little to no profit. It is also hard with everyone & their brother now proclaiming they are a “photographer” & charging little to nothing on session fees for less than professional work with a online editing program.

This is why this is a hard decision: let me give you a scenario. You walk into your local CVS to get some Tylenol & see the generic . Tylenol has the ingredient crospovidone & so does the generic. But the generic version is $5 cheaper. Done- You go with the generic, the obvious decision.

You are not a pharmacist. The generic maybe leagues weaker, but your outright decision & comparison was when you saw the price difference.

From day one I wanted to give you  affordable photography & still give you an amazing experience & photos. But, how can I compete with “Jane” in the next city over only charging $25 {exaggeration} a session.

What I am getting to is I know I may lose some of you awesome people as reoccurring clients due to my $15 raise for an average session. But, I hope that you will first look into quality & not the “quantity” of session fee before making your decision. And know that I put my all into your photos & you are getting much more than you are paying for with the love & energy I put into each of your sessions.

For those of whom have already booked your session, my previous prices will stay the same.

PS. “Jane” in the next city over & the price of $25 was just for example. If there is a “Jane” in the next city over charging $25 this was purely coincidental.  J

Justin & Laura are getting married!! | Fort Wayne Engagement Photographer

Where do I begin with these two? I initially meet them back when I photographed the birth of their son, then again for his newborn pictures & now for TWO parts of their engagements AND for their wedding in September! I love being able to call clients after their session, friends & these two def take on that title! I love that I have been able to photograph such big moments in their life! So part 1 was going be it, their E-session but then some how we go to talking about drive-in's when I confessed that I have been dreaming of doing a e-session in one! i mean hello drive-in, engaged couple = LOVE! Thats when the two of them told me, Justins family the auburn-garrett drive-in!!! O-M-G. Hence part two! These turned out more than amazing & I got to photograph a few of Keen, he is so big now!

Laura & Justin I can not wait to photograph your wedding in just a couple months! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did taking them!

 I love that Laura showed some sassy-ness :)

Here's that adorable couple again! I had so much fun with Andrew & Melanie on their beauitful wedding day! I offered the option of 2nd photographer to them & they said jumped on it! So Miss Tia over at Studio Nine was right hand man er, woman all day. Big thanks to her! Their wedding is what I & some other people referred to as a Steel Magnolias wedding, just with less pink! It was traditional & just beautiful. Melanie was the perfect bride keep calm & cool all day!
