We Made the List!

We made the 2018 List of Best Wedding Photographers in Springfield.  You can see the Complete list HERE

Congratulations to everyone on the list, and here’s to a great 2018!!!

January 2018 and the New Year

As will all good things, 2017 has come to an end.  But, now it’s a new beginning and time to start looking ahead to what 2018 has to offer.  There is so much potential in this year that it’s hard to comprehend at times.  But really, it’s all up to us!  Here are some of our goals for 2018:

• Build a new studio facility (will also be available for rent)

• Offer photography classes

• Photograph more wonderful people than last year

• Stay positive all year long

What are some of your New Year’s goals and dreams?

 

Christmas

Now is the perfect time to schedule Christmas portraits.  Put it off any later, and you might just miss the deadline for a Christmas delivery.  With the print volume from the photo lab increasing this time of year, production runs 1-2 weeks later.  So plan ahead for those portrait gifts!

Portraits

What makes up a portrait.  Well for one, there needs to be someone in the photo.  You.  You make a portrait so special.  Without you, it would just be a photo of a background, a place outdoors, or the grass or rocks around.  You give a portrait life, you make it important.  You make a portrait an heirloom.  Something your family will treasure for generations.  You give the portrait a meaning to exist.  Without you, there is no purpose of a portrait.

What do I specialize in.  Portraits of you.  417-894-0230

Wednesday is Drawing Day

Today I’m giving away a 5×5 Framed photo from one of your sessions.  But you have to do a little work to win.  Suggest all your friends to become our Fans on Facebook and I’ll enter your name into the hat.  Next Wednesday I’ll draw from those who entered and announce the winner!  You can earn a second entry by leaving a review of your experience with the studio on the Fanpage.   This allows everyone to enter, past clients, current clients and any complimentary sessions!!!  That’s it, go enter!!!   HERE IS THE FANPAGE

Passion – Love – Commitment

Not only are these three things feelings that I have for my relationship with my spouse.  They are three feelings I have toward the artwork I produce.  It’s been a wonderful journey to arrive to where I am today and I am truly grateful that I have passion, love and commitment to my craft or I would have given up out of frustration years ago.  But enduring through my creative pitfalls and learning techniques that I lacked when I first started, I believe I’ve truly become an artist today.  So when you schedule your appointment, you aren’t just getting someone who thinks they can make a quick buck because I have a fancy camera.  You are getting someone committed to what they are doing.  Someone who is committed to giving you the best experience and the best end result possible.  Don’t be fooled my imitators or newcomers with no experience.  It will save you  a dollar or two to start with, but down the road those feelings of regret and remorse will not bring your irreplaceable memories back for you.

Don’t let Fall Pass You By.

Fall is here.  Soon the beautiful leaves won’t be.  Don’t hesitate, get your photos done before the weather turns cold.  Get the beautiful fall colors while they are going on outdoors.  Get them done in time for Christmas!  So many reasons to get your photos done now!  Do I have to list them all?

Digital Dog Days

What is digital dog days?  ?Well it is a way to save you money on professional portraits!

Don’t wait, this only runs to August 30th, 2010, but you can set your appointment for anytime until November!

There is a $10 setting fee that is donated to Charity.  For a youth session  (kids 15 & under)  the fee is $150.  You get 20 images of your choice on a disc to take home with you!

Family sessions are $199 for 20 images.

Are Wedding Bells In Your Future?

Your wedding might be next month.  It might be next year.  It might be just a journal entry and a dream.  Whatever it is to you, and whenever it is, take some wonderful advice:  Let a true professional capture your wedding memories.  It will be one decision you will never regret! That I can promise you.  Even if you don’t choose me as your photographer, hire someone that has an artistic ability, and know how of capturing an image that will give you memories for generations to come.

Here are a list of some Friends and Fellow Artists whose work I not only admire but who are wonderful people who will serve your wedding day with the love and respect that it deserves and still make you laugh and smile the entire day.

Jason & Aurelia ~   Dawn Shields ~   Jared & Joanna ~   Josh Carter

Gene Ho ~   Jonathan CanlasSteve & Shelley

I’ve been blessed to know each of these teams/individuals for quite some time.  Honestly, their work is beauty and art combined. Their work inspires me every day I look upon it.   They have not only  made me a better photographer by knowing them,  working with them, and by being their friend, they have made me a better person.

So whoever you choose to work with during  your wedding, portraits or to capture your child’s birthday.  Whether it’s Josh, Jason & Aurelia,  Steve & Shelley, Gene, Dawn, Jared & Joanna, Jonathan or I.  Just make sure they inspire you, and you’ll always enjoy the art they create for you for years and years and years.
