I have long been a photographer working for whoever or whatever event would pay me. When I became a bride, and started attending bridal fairs and choosing vendors, I discovered that the studios I talked to wanted to sell me their package. It was frustrating not to even know who would be shooting the wedding.

It was then I decided I really could do a better job, and for less money! I was considering wedding photography from the perspective of a bride with a budget.

By not opening a studio I save a lot of overhead, and it helps to keep my prices very reasonable. I have new, state of the art Mac equipment for editing and enhancing photos and I enjoy the creativity that I get from my work.

Designing wedding books and canvas portraits are some of the most fun. Telling your story is very important to me.

I employ back up photographers and have the ability to bring in additional experienced photographers to help as needed; usually depending on your wedding size. I know what was important for my wedding, so now I have incorporated that with your needs to make your day the best experience possible.

I used two of my back up photographers to shoot my wedding, and I can promise you no one will care more about your event, or provide you with the same level of quality work and event commitment than I will. Because of this I felt the need to just have one package, what I call my Base Pacakge, at a very affordable price with add-ons avaiable if you would like.

I have had great success with the idea of a Base package. After working with many couples and listening to their feedback of what they are looking for, I developed a Base package. This package includes the necessities of what Brides and Grooms are looking for. I then have a list of Extras that can be added to this Base package to customize it to your needs! You can also stay with the base package for an even $695.00* (tax included)
The Base Package
Our weddings start at $695.00 (tax included) for 5 hours of actual wedding day photography time. This price also includes a Free Engagement photography session at a location of your choice, a free 8×10″ framed photograph of your choice and a CD/DVD of approximately 150-300** finished photographs, separate from the Engagement photographs.
The Affordable Photo Booth
Perfect for Weddings & Events of Any Occasion! I have come to believe that the Wedding Photography is for the most part for the couple getting married and for their respective families and friends. I have also come to believe that the Photo Booth is part of the entertainment that coincides with that perfect Wedding! What better entertainment for your guests during the reception than a tangible memento personalized and fun of a photo they can take with them and cherish forever!  When you book your Wedding with us you can add on the Photo Booth for only $495.00!  This price includes 3 hours of Photo Booth fun (with attendant), 300 on site printed images, fun and wacky props provided, event name & date printed on each photo, choice of black or white back drop as well as complete set up and breakdown of our Phot Booth. The Photo Booth is such a fun, affordable compliment to any wedding while staying in a very reasonable budget!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There are so many. From the Engagement Session (that was free) to the CD of 313 images, I loved every single one of them!!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She was simply AMZING!!!!!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Gosh, what wasnt included? LOL There was a free engagement session, that we did in April, we paid for an extra hour of time on our wedding day, but I think she does like 5 hours of wedding coverage, a free framed photograph (we used an engagement session picture) and a CD of 313 pictures (NOT including the engagement session) and we only paid $650. I think she only charges $500, but we added an extra hour of photography :)

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She is just so amazingly nice and since we already did the engagement session, we got to know her. We did our engagement session down at her "River Location" and after about 30 pictures or so, we all just were laughing and having a good old time, and it was like I had known her for years. I am just sooooo HAPPY we went with Shayla from Affordable Wedding Photography. I have had more compliments from her photos, and we just had FAMILY photos done at Kim Jew, and dropped like $1200, and they dont even compare to the photos that Shayla did!!!!

There is a picture of us that was taken after we said our vows that is just absolutely amazing!

You really didn't even know she was there. When we were ready to take our family and group pictures, she was great with the kids, awesome with our grandparents, and overall was the best photographer I have ever dealt with!

This was the most AMAZING thing of ALL!!! For ONLY $500.00!!!!!
We got:
5 HOURS of Wedding Day Photography
FREE Engagement Session-We did this about 5 weeks before our wedding
FREE 8x10 Framed Photo
and the best part??? She gave us a CD with approx. 200 FINISHED photos that we were able to send to family and friends, post on Facebook, and even print our own (we used WalMart, and it was so inexpensive) pictures!

We also "Added On" three wedding albums that she created for us! One big one for us and two "Parents in-law" albums!

You CANNOT beat this price for what you get, and the professionalism was the best I have EVER experienced!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Great with kids, awesome with grandparents, and even corralled the entire wedding party more than once, and always with a smile on her face!!!
