The Full Story
Wedding Photography by Creative
Since I was a little boy, I have loved photography. My mother would let me take pictures with her Brownie Hawkeye camera. I got my first camera, a Kodak instamatic when I was 8 years old. In 1974 I joined the navy and I took a 2 year photography class from the School of Modern Photography in Little Falls New Jersey. When I got out of the navy, I was a studio manager in San Angelo Texas until I started my own studio in August of 1978, Creative Photography, also in San Angelo. My wife Vera and I are both photographers and have been members of Professional Photographers of America where I received Certified Professional Photographer status in 1988.
We love to photograph weddings! That's why we will photograph an engagement mini session at no charge just for taking a tour of our venue, The Meadows Wedding Venue, and we will add a Bridal Portrait session to your wedding Photography package, also at no additional charge for the session. Your wedding day coverage starts one and a half hours before your ceremony. We start photographing the bride, her attendants, and her family. About an hour before the ceremony we move to the Grooms side and photograph the groom, the groomsmen and the grooms' family. Formal portraits are taken in between the ceremony and reception; it takes about 15 to 20 minutes. We photograph the entire reception: including first dances, cake cutting and toasts, bouquet and garter tosses, and the couple’s departure. You get a great wedding book with 80 photos that you choose, make your selection from the Engagement & Bridal Sessions, and the Wedding Day Coverage. You will choose from over 300 images. You have the option to purchase a larger book, add more pages or purchase a digital download of all the images so you can have prints made yourself. My wedding Photography packages start at $1200.00 but by booking The Meadows Wedding Venue, you're only paying about $600.00. Now that's a great value! Danny
We love photographing a couples engagement session because we get a better understanding of how the couple responds to one another up close and personal, so we get better results on their wedding day. The groom typically does not feel comfortable being photographed, but after this session he is usually looking forward to the wedding day and is not concerned about how he is going to look.
Formal Bridal Portraits
Traditionally the bridal portrait was a dress rehearsal for the wedding day. Hair, makeup, undergarments, everything was to be just like the wedding day, so after the bride saw her bridals she could make changes for the actual wedding day. These days, most brides don't want the added expense of hairdresser and time to schedule the session, so we make a time on the wedding day to photograph the bride in her wedding dress alone.
On the wedding day, we start photographing the bride and bridesmaids an hour and a half before the ceremony. Vera photographs the diving into the dress and preparations, then Danny captures the daddy reveal and portraits with family and bridesmaids. One hour before the ceremony the groom, his family and groomsmen are photographed.
