About Prelude Photography & Video

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 can pull an amazing picture out of natural light, or using off camera lights, sculpt a romantic, stunning silhouette of the two of you.

    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.

    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!
