About

$2,100 Most Popular Price

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.


Experience
First, we have a staff, regular hours and a storefront in Great Lakes Mall since 2007.

We do 40-50 weddings a year, so we are very comfortable with how to get the best photography.We have over 100 reviews on Wedding Wire here

We are established and weddings are our business. This is now a sidejob or hobby for any of us. This is what we do.

Our style has long been Personality Driven which showcasing those crazy bridal parties to mom's tears to the love & chemistry between you and your groom/bride.We are educated in photography. We can pull an amazing picture out of natural light, or using off camera lights, sculpt a romantic, stunning silhouette of the two of you.

    Amazing!!!!!

    Matt was the best photographer we have ever had! We got a bonus with Joe. One for Matt and one for Joe! They captured every special minute of our day! Things we missed as bride and groom! Our parents, loved ones and friends had the best time ever!
    The pictures are natural and honestly Matt and Joe made our day!!!! Prelude Photography should be your photographer!!!

    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 :)

    Highly recommend

    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!
    They made our day complete.
