Therefore, we do not make it necessary to know what package you want in order to book your date. We accept cash, check, Visa and Mastercard and payment plans. There is a $200 nonrefundable deposit required to reserve the wedding date. This amount is subtracted from your balance. The balance of your package is due no later than one week before the wedding date.

What To Expect And How Your Wedding Day Is Photographed On your wedding day, we are there to photograph your wedding in a professional and efficient manner, and one way of doing so is by beginning the photography 1 1/2 hours prior to the ceremony. Here’s how it works: We arrive at the wedding site 1 1/2 hours before the ceremony is to begin. This is included in the package time limit. We begin taking photos (inside and outside) of the bride’s side of the wedding party and family, which includes bride, bridesmaids, flower girl, mother, father, sister and brother, etc. We then proceed to do the same with the groom and his side.
The bride and groom will not be photographed together until after the ceremony, unless they request. After photos of the bride and groom’s side are done, we take several candid photos of people getting ready, guest arriving, etc. We photograph the bride as she is getting ready to walk down the aisle as well as while she is walking down the aisle from the back of the church. During the ceremony, no flash photography is used and we stay in one location and do not move about while photographing the ceremony. Following the wedding ceremony we will photograph the entire wedding party together and then family photos with both the bride and groom. We save photographs of the bride and groom for last and take many posed and candid shots both inside and outside of the church. Taking photographs 1 1/2 hours prior to the ceremony frees up time after the ceremony, therefore getting the couple to the reception quicker. Photos after the wedding will take about 45 mins. At the reception, we photograph the events as they take place and always check with the bride and groom to see if there are any special photos they would like taken.
This is our most popular way to photograph a wedding, but you may choose to have all your photos taken before the wedding or all taken after the ceremony. This is YOUR day, and we do our best to insure you receive the type of photographs and service you and your family expect.
We’ve all seen them. The rude, bossy photographers that think they are so talented it gives them the right to be rude to those in your wedding party. Crystal Image Photography is photography from a woman’s point of view. I am married, I know exactly what it is like to be a nervous bride on her wedding day. The last thing you need is a bossy, pushy photographer. A photographer can produce the best images you have ever seen, but, if they are rude, pushy and well, have no personality nor abilities to work with people it can make for a long day. Don’t worry, we’ll get the job done - in fact in all the hundreds of weddings photographed we’ve never had a complaint of being rude, etc. The first comment we usually get from brides is “I love my pictures”, the second is “You were so easy to work with.”
Booking Your Wedding Date We do not shoot more than one wedding per day and we do travel for wedding coverage so remember to book your wedding date early to insure availability. Wedding dates can fill up six months to a full year in advance.
