Collins Wedding Portfolio-100.jpg

The next few minutes may affect the rest of your life...

Dramatic Right? But I got your attention. 

(I will get to all the details about why I think we are good photographers, the fact that we have shot hundreds of weddings, the fact that our weddings NEVER run late, and the fact our wedding clients almost always become life long friends here in a moment...

But First - Imagine with me for a second what happens after your wedding....

Like WAY after - when you are sitting down with your husband, your children, or even your GRAND CHILDREN (weird to think about right?), trying to reminisce about your big magical day. 

First - you of course pull out the album of your wedding photos, but when you open up the pages...

What Do You See?

If it looks like these - then you should keep reading.

 

Remember my big dramatic headline about your life changing after you read this?

That is because unlike your cake, your flowers, your place settings, and even your dress.. (All of which are important, by the way)

...You are going to have, look at, and hopefully cherish your wedding photos for the rest of your life. Not only that, future generations will be looking at your wedding album as well. We always say that your wedding album is your first big family heirloom.

Choosing your wedding photographer is a big decision, and one that should not be made lightly - and if you liked what you saw in our portfolio - I would like to submit ourselves for your consideration for your wedding photographers.

I won't spend too much time going on and on about our qualifications (we can get to those at your consultation), but I do want to tell you a little bit about ourselves. 

First off, my name is Rana, and my husband and I have been photographing weddings for just under 9 years now. (That is us in the above picture) We are newlyweds ourselves, and we look at our amazing wedding album almost every single day... and EVERY single time that we have friends over. At this point we have shot just over 250 weddings in 28 states and 3 countries, and we have dealt with just about every single best and worst case scenario you can think of.

(Again, we will talk more at your consultation, but we have bustled dresses, loaned shoes to groomsmen, sown up a hole that one groomsman ripped in his pants, used our lighting equipment to shield the bride from a downpour, and a bunch of other funny stories that I would love to tell you about)

We have photographed big traditional weddings in basilicas, beautiful beach weddings, back country barn weddings (those are always a party), and even upscale weddings in Manhattan. Regardless of what your wedding LOOKS like, we focus on one thing.

 

 

Our singular goal is to create wedding photos that are not only beautiful, but that make you FEEL what your big day was like every time that you see them. We have a simple and intimate style - and we try and focus more on capturing the emotions surrounding the day than anything else. When you open your album 15 years from now, at risk of sounding a bit cheesy, we want you to tear up and remember what it was like to say those vows. We want you to crack up laughing and remember what it was like to dance late into the night with your college buddies who maybe had a bit too much to drink. We want you to smile every time you turn to the page where you were dancing with your father (or mother), and they gave you that ever so meaningful advice.

The Investment 

Good wedding photography is a big investment, but it is an investment that will pay emotional dividends for years and years to come. That said, our packages are priced competitively with options starting under $3,000, and before I let you go - I want to tell you about one of our obsessions.

As I said above, this is a big investment that you are about to make... but I want you to know just how much we respect the sacrifice involved coming up with the money to hire us. We do not take lightly the fact that, in a lot of cases, we are the biggest ticket item that they pay for. Because of that, we are OBSESSED with giving you more than you give to us. Even if you choose to go with our absolute top package, we want you to walk away feeling like you got the deal of a lifetime because you love your photos just that much. 

There is of course no way to measure whether or not we are hitting that goal, but take a look at what a couple of our recent brides had to say:

All we can say is WOW!!!
It’s so hard to find words. You both did such an incredible job, and we will never be able to thank you enough for capturing each moment of the best day of our lives.

Thank you, ENDLESSLY!!! I wish we could have been with you guys to show you how ecstatic we were with every click of each photo.

You are so amazing, and again, thank you beyond WORDS!!!!
:) Infinity smiling faces!!!!!!

I am thrilled that The Bartees photographed our wedding.

They were prompt, professional, and super friendly. I could not be happier with our photos. They stayed with us all day, from getting ready, all the way through the reception.

They captured perfect moments of our perfect day. I highly recommend them to any couple looking for a wedding photographer.

They seriously rock.
