At John Reynolds Photography, we specialize in the art of people. Our greatest passion is to capture gorgeous, evocative artistic images during the happiest moments in our clients' lives…images which will continue to bring you that joy for years to come.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
Our clients have described my shooting style as a fusion of high-energy, playful, artistic, modern & fun with a nod to classical. I love to tell a story through a series of images & capture those special moments that make your wedding day unique.
SO HOW CAN WE BOOK YOU ?
Come chat with us in studio or contact us if you're out of the Central CA area. A signed contract and $1,000 retainer which goes towards your total package are required before we can hold your date. We accept bookings up to 18 months in advance & popular dates (Saturdays in Spring & Fall) go fast.
HOW SOON WILL WE SEE OUR WEDDING IMAGES?
We typically schedule a viewing session for you to see your images for the first time in our studio's projection theater four-six weeks after your wedding. After the screening, your proof images will go live on a password protected online gallery where friends & family can view the images, as well as order prints of their own. We also include a bound proof-book for you to keep with all of your proof images.
CAN WE GET OUR IMAGES ON DISC & CAN WE PRINT THEM OURSELVES?
Yes, and yes. All of our Wedding Collections include your digital negatives, and the studio will also permanently archive them for you. All of the images proofed are included at full-resolution on disc with a personal reprint license so you are free to make prints of your faves yourself.
WE'RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING .....DO YOU TRAVEL?
Absolutely... we shoot alot of Fresno weddings and around the Central Valley as well as Pismo Beach & on the Central Coast but also travel throught the country. We just shot a Disney fairytale destination wedding in Orlando & we've got weddings this summer in Tahoe and up & down the Central Coast & Wine Country regions.
HOW MANY PICTURES DO YOU TAKE?
We will shoot literally thousands of images for a full-day wedding, and present clients with the "best-of-the-best". For example we'll burst shoot 3-5 exposures of every pose and choose the strongest image artistically & technically. We typically present clients with 500-700 finished images, depending upon their day.....and clients always tell us that the hardest part is narrowing down their favs for the album design :-)
HOW LONG WILL YOU SHOOT ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
We want to capture all of the most amazing moments of your day and that's why we include all-day coverage in our wedding Collections. A typical wedding day averages 8-10 hours for us....we like to start with the bride before she steps into her dress and we like to stay well into the reception.
SO HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The answer depends upon you & what you want.....our wedding Collections start at $1,990 and range from there depending upon the products & studio services you select. Our most popular Collections include an engagement session, SaveTheDate's, custom photo guestbook & incorporate all-day wedding coverage and a gorgeous hand-crafted Masterpiece wedding album. Contact the studio for our complete Collections wedding pricing info. We also have A La Carte Menu pricing options for clients who prefer to "design-their-own" wedding collections or wish to customize ours. For weddings outside of Fresno County we add a nominal travel fee to cover our costs.
DOES THE STUDIO HAVE A BRIDAL REGISTRY?
Yes, every couple can have their own registry with the studio once you're a client of John Reynolds Photography. This is great for letting your family & friends buy you gift certificates for wall portraits, canvas, and additional album pages & upgrades. You’ll receive a credit in a dollar amount that you can use towards all studio products & services (or save some for your maternity & newborn sessions :-)
WHERE SHOULD WE SHOOT OUR ENGAGEMENT PICTURES ?
We shoot engagement photos all over creation in lots of fun locations.....often clients choose a favorite place that's special for them. Many choose to go to Pismo or the Central Coast area which is fabulous year-round. I love engagement pictures in Autumn in any leafy park setting or in Springtime engagement photos in the blossoms & wildflowers up in the foothills are fantastic. We know lots of "secret" cool spots to shoot & we're always happy to travel to the destination of your choice. For destination engagement sessions outside of the Fresno area, we simply add a nominal travel fee.
We recommend showcasing your engagement images in one of our custom SaveTheDate cards or magnets, and offer a custom designed hardcover guestbook featuring your favorite engagement images with space for guests to write their good wishes.
