Weddings - Our Committment
Wedding Day Photos can never be retaken! To capture these moments, the couple and photographers must prepare together and rehearse. Good photos do not just happen! Our commitment to you includes the following services that will ensure you get the best photos possible.
#1. Free Engagement Session -
This session will result in many wonderful images, but the primary objective of this time is to get to know each other, and to relax in front of the camera. No one wants a stranger photographing them on the most important day of their lives. Many are not used to being photographed and are nervous. Truthfully, the first 15 minutes or so of the engagement session result in images that we often throw out. There is an awkwardness, a stiffness that soon melts away. The couple then relaxes and has fun. The images are great. This feeling of confidence carries over to the wedding day portraits.
#2. Free Bridal Session -
Again, the primary objective is to build a comfortable presence before the camera. Very few photographers offer this session, because most do not have
professional studios. This is a relaxed fun session in our studio. Basically, this is a study of the bride
in her gown and veil, done before the wedding day. Most of our brides choose to come over
after they have their trial hair and make-up,
but anytime is fine. Beautiful lighting, graceful poses result in stunning images. It’s not even the day of the wedding and already we have
lovely portraits of the bride. And to make it even better, some bring their bridesmaids and/or parents with them. We love that...more amazing photos taken before the wedding day begins.
#3. Teamwork -
You will always have a minimum of two photographers covering your wedding. When you hire us,
we will be the ones who will be photographing the wedding, not some new staff

Fox Creative Design provided absolutely outstanding service. The images provided were amazing and we felt that they truly captured the essence of us as a couple and our special day. We especially appreciated how Joan and Keith were able to be non-intrusive throughout the day. The entire process was incredible, from the initial contact and great communication to the tips for a smooth day and the prompt final product. We would not have changed a thing!!

Thank you so much for all your kindness and generosity over the last year. You were not only the best photographers, but the greatest friends. It has been fun getting to know you. Thank you for wedding pictures more beautiful than we had ever hoped for.

What a fantastic experience it was working with Joan and Keith! We couldn't have asked for our pictures to go better! We were continually impressed with how hard they worked, their professionalism and the quality of their work. We would most definitely recommend them to anyone!
- Steph and Matt
We were very pleased with the photographs Joan and Keith took of our wedding day. Their photographs tell the story of our wedding and capture the many special moments that occurred. Their professionalism, enthusiasm and creativity are apparent in everything they do. We are very happy that we had the opportunity to work with Joan and Keith. We now have beautiful photographs that we will cherish for a lifetime.
- Jaime and Jeff
You have been so kind and generous to us over the last few months. Thank you for the gorgeous pictures and the album. We showed my parents our album yesterday and of course they just loved it! They said it's the most beautiful book they've ever seen. We had a fabulous wedding and hope that you had a good time too, even though we're still worried that you were too busy working. Many, many thousands of thank yous!

We offer our services differently, because we want you to have the
flexibility to choose what you need, and to choose what fits into your budget.
Joan and Keith shoot together as a team, so you always get two photographers. Please come in and sit down with us to discuss your ideas, and your budget. Take advantage of our
free one hour NO pressure consultation. We accept VISA, MasterCard, PayPal.
Payment plans are available.
For Saturday Wedding Coverage, we have a minimum charge of $2500. This can

resolutiion jpegs, slide show, album, etc. For all other days, weddings
and related sessions, the coverage is by the hour and we have NO minimum

What's different about our wedding services and products?
Our creative fee is hourly. Let us know how many hours you want us to
photograph your wedding, and we will give you the basic cost. Our hourly

you can decide what products you want. Please email or call us for the
cost of the DVD of high resolution jpegs, slide show, albums, prints, etc.
