Photographer & Investment Information

In today's market, you can virtually find a photographer lingering around every corner. It has been a hobby for some, for some it has been a long time professional goal or a dream that has blossomed over the years. And for some it has been an instant career choice or switch that has been made to accommodate a rough economy. I know there is a choice.... a vast choice in a huge pool of people who are all doing the same thing.

Or are they??

When you hire me, you are getting so much more than someone that takes pictures. I had the advantage of learning the old fashioned way, and as nice as my DSLR's are..... there is something simply fabulous about the medium of a true black and white darkroom print.

My company is called Snapped With Love for a reason. I love what I do, with a passion and fire that runs so deep I actually feel like I see life through a camera lens 100% of the time. I see beauty in all things. Perfection is not always having every hair in place and your make up perfect. Beauty and perfection come from within.

I establish relationships with my clients, learn whats important to them, what makes them happy and I use that to capture true beauty and personality in every image I process.

When you hire me, you get ALL of me.

I become friends with every single one of my clients. You are no longer a business contact, you are a friend and I hope to keep you for life.

We are very involved in our church. First and foremost I owe my talents and successes to God and because of that He comes first.

I don't have people working for me. I don't have interns or anyone doing my editing. As nice as that would be, I am too concerned with the quality of my work to hand it over to anyone else. I hand edit each image, I don't have a program that does it all. I color correct, remove blemishes, stray hairs (if deemed necessary), smooth complexions, brighten eyes, remove background distractions etc.... all by hand. One image at a time. It takes time. Sometimes during busy season it can take longer than expected. I just ask you have patience. I personally believe the time I spend editing each image makes me stand out among others. I want to give you a perfectly flawless product sometimes this takes time.

  • You will get an online preview within 72 hours of your shoot. At LEAST 10 images....
  • You will receive a CD with 35-40 images on it for a standard session.
  • A Mini Session you will get 15 images.
  • For a wedding you will receive a lot more.
  • Each image will be retouched by hand as previously discussed. You can get a copy of the Print Release if needed to print your images.
  • I have printing services available at VERY reasonable prices.
  • I believe in Quality and Quantity. I want you to get the most for your money and time. I don't believe ANYONE gets anywhere by being greedy and I do believe that if you are generous in your efforts you will reap the benefits later in life. Will my prices ever go up?? Yes. But I can promise you I will never overcharge. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I did that.
If you have an idea, a pose you MUST have or a location you have been dreaming about for years, let me know... I will try anything for a great photo, and am willing to travel nearly anywhere :) Bring me your idea and I can almost always accommodate your needs. I am always up for a challenge and love new ideas!

Please understand, busy season is every season, EXCEPT January and February. I am usually booked up 2 months in advance on weekends. I usually have a handful of weekday spots available if I can accommodate you that way. Please don't wait till the last minute to try and schedule. I am only human, and I am only me and I can't overbook!!! If you want to book a session, call ASAP and get it done!!! :) I do have wait lists for certain days, in the event of a cancellation you will be notified.
