I may have officiated over 4000 weddings, but I have also photographed over 1000 weddings and together with my children we have photographed close to 2000 ceremonies.
Please scroll down this page to learn about some no-cost photography options and some low-cost keepsake photography options.
When I was in college with full-time vocational church ministry in my future, I took photography classes as electives using a manually operated Nikon and a dark room to develop the photos. I actually won awards competing with photography major students.
As a freelance photographer I am able to help provide photography services for the ceremonies I am officiating, or not officiating, especially for small weddings, vow renewal celebrations, events, or family beach portraits and gatherings.
If you have any questions or wish to have photography help, please contact me at the Photography Inquiry page or through the form at the bottom of this page.
If you are looking for some helpful photography options or just wondering what to do about photos for your simple wedding or elopement or vow renewal celebration, let me share with you some ways I may be able to help…
FREE – I am happy to give a referral to a professional full-time photographer. In fact, just check the form below or at the Photography Inquiry page and I will be happy to send you back an email with some recommendations.
FREE – I am happy to take photos with your own camera or smartphone. My officiating fee is for scheduling my time and once I’m there, I am more than happy to take photos with your camera or smartphone, at no additional cost. I can even take a few photos on my own smartphone and immediately email them to you, at no cost. Please the form below or at the Photography Inquiry page to express your interest in this option.
$50 – I have a professional Nikon D5000 camera with customized lens and for an additional $50.00 fee I am happy to bring it and take some photos, if you don’t require a lot of photos. I do take photos during the ceremony, because my wedding ceremony is memorized and I actually will take photos throughout, including the ring exchange and kiss. I am happy to take some photos afterwards, too. The cost has more to do with the actual processing time from camera to laptop to USB to mailing and is ideal if you only want up to 50 or more photos (count applies to variables with weather, requests, family, etc.). Please the form below or at the Photography Inquiry page to express your interest in this option.
$150 – Sometimes I am able to bring my daughter with me to take photos for ceremonies that I am officiating. Over the years all my children have taken up photography and have snapped hundreds of beach weddings. My daughter Payton is sometimes available, depending on her school schedule.
If you are looking for 100+ photos (count applies to variables with weather, requests, family, etc.), 1/2 hour photography coverage, poses and candid shots through ceremony and afterwards, high resolution digital photos, DVD provided with all photos taken, 3 to 5-day USB mailing turnaround, no watermarks or logo imprints, no copyright restrictions. You can read our target photo shots at the Shot List page. Please the form below or at the Photography Inquiry page to express your interest in this option.
This is also the photography package I offer when I provide as a freelance photographer for small weddings, events, or family beach portraits and gatherings. Please use the form below or at the Photography Inquiry page to express your interest in my freelance photographer services.
