About Contemporary Image Photographers
IF YOU’RE ON THIS PAGE IT’S PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU’VE BEEN SCOUTING AROUND AND TRYING TO COMPARE PRICES, SERVICES and STYLE.
Prices are all different and it's not always easy to tell what you're getting. I believe your investment starts with the time, talent and experience of the photographers. After all, if you don’t like your wedding pictures than what difference does it make how many albums and extras are included. We have three main photographers on staff. Emil Bartsche (thats me) has 30 years photographing weddings. Mike McElroy has 30 years photographing weddings and Mary Raleigh has 20 years photographing weddings.
Second, I believe you should have access to all of wedding images and the right to reproduce them. Let’s face it, many photographers hold your images hostage so that you have to order additional prints through them at a greatly inflated price or they will “sell you your wedding images on a disk” for a substantial fee. We provide you all of your wedding images in a print resolution JPEG format on a really cool flash drive with a copyright authorization.
Next, your photographers style is very important. Our goal is to tell the story of your wedding day the best way we know how...through photographs. We create work that is real, natural, artistic and fun. We draw some inspiration from the internet and magazines but mostly from our own past experiences. Although each of us love candid shots above all others, many of our shots are actually posed or set in motion. They just look candid! A good photographer not only captures those fleeting moments, but has the ability to create them as well. As a team we give direction, but are never obnoxious or rude. We work quickly, creating a wide variety of artistic images that will eventually be used in your wedding album, a dynamic photo/video or as art work decorating your walls and tables.
