Photography stays. After the cake is served, the music stops, and the venue closes for the night, what stays with you from the wedding, stays with your children, and with your children's children . . . will be the photography. Photography should be a comfortable constant the day of your wedding. Artwork for the days after. Memories for the years after. And a window to the past for the generations after. Photography stays.

Amazing Wedding Photography and Videography
We are so happy that we chose Prelude for both photography and videography for our wedding (and engagement pictures). After doing extensive research of wedding photographers- once we met with Matt at the studio we were sold with Prelude! Matt and his team were awesome at capturing all the special moments and taking the time to make sure all our “picture requests” were done. Matt was amazing to work with, super responsive and accommodating, as well as professional! Always wanting to make sure everything was as perfect as possible! We got our pictures and smash video back within a timely manner and we were very impressed with the quality! Can’t say enough good things about them! Would highly recommend Prelude :)Sent on 09/05/2019

Highly recommend them! Shannon and Matt were awesome to work with. They made the day fun and got every photo shot we could possible want. They stay with you the whole day and do not leave until more then half your party leaves. They were able to give me everything we had asked for! I will def recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer and videographer! Our smash video turned out beautifully!Sent on 08/07/2019

Happy Days Wedding
Prelude photography was recommended to us by a friend and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! Marijeta our photographer kept the photos relaxed and creative. It was a very, very hot day and she came with us to take pictures outside, which was much appreciated! She stayed almost the entire night and took very memorable photos of events during our reception that we otherwise may have missed. We would highly recommend Prelude!Sent on 08/06/2019
