Gorgeous Photography at a Fair Price / Fort Wayne Wedding Photographers

"What a Girl Wants ~ What a Girl Needs" ... I've been thinking of those lines a lot lately.  Not only for my client, but for me - a girl in business.

When I started out, I was shooting film, doing weddings and family stuff for free for my friends and family, sometimes screwing them up pretty badly while I learned.  As I went along, other people began to ask me to do their weddings and portraits.  People I didn't know, but who had seen my work on the friends' walls.  I decided then not to do this for free.  As the years have gone by, I've charged more as I got better and better.  I won some awards, been published in some magazines, and upgraded equipment a few times, and charged even more.  I felt proud of myself.  I have come a long way.
 
In the last few years I decided on a paradigm shift.  I didn't want to be just any photographer, I thought.  I wanted to be a full service photographer, offering the most amazing albums, mounted prints... heck recently I decided I'd include a coordinator for every wedding I booked.  I felt good about this.  I wanted to pamper my brides with services, and all the products they saw on The Knot, and all the cool bridal television shows.
 
Unfortunately, while I had this dream of becoming a boutique wedding photographer, a couple of wars lingered on, gas prices sky rocketed, so food priced soared, and property values plummeted.  The people I so wanted to hire me were struggling, or at the very least, hanging on tight to the dollars they had.  Full service, high-end, luxury...?  Not such a great idea.  Sometimes the idea is fantastic, but the timing is all wrong.  Such has been the case for me and my brilliant business idea.
 
So new paradigm: Offer gorgeous photography at a fair price for my level of expertise, and what you might want additionally, you can pick and choose.  I will do what I do best, which is spend time finding out what you want most in your photos, and provide that.  As far as HOW you want them, i.e. prints, albums, canvas, save the dates, etc...you choose, and I will happily furnish them!
 
What I want most is to work with you, and produce gorgeous life markers for you that even your great grand children will enjoy, and take pride in.   The rest of my dream can wait a while, like everyone else's.
