Birmingham, Alabama Wedding Photography from DSmithImages

Greetings everyone... I hope you all had a wonderful 2016! It was a great year for DSmithImages Wedding Photography, Portraits, and Events, and it also set the foundation for what should be a great 2017. The year 2017 and beyond is why I wanted to take a moment to talk with you today. I wanted to let you know all that you can get if you choose me as your wedding photography provider this year and into the future.

You are the boss on your wedding day!

If you choose DSmithImages Wedding Photography, Portraits, and Events as your official wedding photography provider, you're getting, first and foremost, fantastic and personalized customer service. I operate with the strict philosophy that YOU are the boss on your wedding day, and I am there to make sure you get exactly what you want in terms of photographs and quality. After all, it is YOUR big day.

From the first lines of communication to the engagement session and up until the final editing process, I make it a point to work with you and to get as much input from you as possible. I want the wedding to look like what you want it to look like. I want it to match your vision and your dreams. That is incredibly important to me.

Another thing I pride myself on offering with all my wedding photography packages is a full day's coverage of the wedding. I don't apply a time limit when I photograph a wedding. You give me a start time, and I'm there until the end of the reception. I do this because I want to cover as much of the day as possible so you'll have all those memories to cherish in the future.

All packages also come with, at least, an engagement session or bridal session. This is a way to get some great photographs done before the day of the wedding and allows us to continue to build the relationship that's already been established.

When you receive your photos after the wedding, they will be delivered to you on a custom made USB drive. You'll get all images in both high resolution and web resolution copies. This means you'll have all print rights to your photos in addition to having copies that you can put online to show your friends and family. You'll even get all copies in both color and black and white!

In addition to the USB drive, you'll have access to a private proof gallery where all your images will be stored. This is a great way to review your wedding photos and to let your friends and family, especially those that might be living far away, to view the memories from the big day.

Now all these options are included with every wedding photography package I offer, but more options, such as wedding albums and rehearsal dinner coverage, are also available on some of my advanced packages. I've tiered things to make my services available to as many brides and grooms as possible.

Your wedding photography investment!

In terms of pricing, my rates are very fair and competitive. My wedding photography packages start at $1499.99. Now don't worry about having to put all that money down at once. All you have to do is make a payment of 1/3 of the package price to book and hold your wedding date. The second 1/3 payment would be due 60 days before the wedding and, of course, the final 1/3 payment would be due at the conclusion of the wedding. This is to ensure you don't get hit with a huge lump payment all at once.

Keep in mind there is no additional travel charge for ANY wedding in the state of Alabama. I'm located in the Birmingham, Alabama area but can service the entire state. I also waive travel charges for most locations in eastern Mississippi and up through the metro Atlanta area.

My full pricing information can be found by visiting "Wedding Photography Investment with DSmithImages". Do remember that I run monthly specials on wedding photography throughout the year! If you inquire and/or book during a particular month, you might save 10, 15 or even 20% on the overall package price. More information about the current special I'm running for the month can be found by visiting "Current Photography Specials from DSmithImages".

If this has piqued your interest and you want even more information about what I can offer in terms of wedding photography, I'd love to go ahead and arrange a consultation with you. There's no fee or pressure when scheduling one. This is a way for us to get to know each other but, most importantly, it is a way for you to decide if DSmithImages Wedding Photography, Portraits, and Events is the right option for you! You can arrange a consultation by emailing me or giving me a call at 205-586-9723.

You can also take some time to look at other weddings I've photographed by visiting "Weddings by DSmithImages". Access to see what a private proofing gallery is also available if you'd like to request it.

I hope this information helps, and I hope to hear from you in regards to being able to provide your wedding photography!
