Our printed Heirloom PhotoArt® looks far better and lasts much longer than digital files --perfect for your wedding!
Talk to any of our former brides and you will learn that our photography is truly different, not just random snaps, nor faked fashions. We take more pictures of people than 'things'. Every image we capture from your wedding day comes with a heartfelt memory, one that brings you back to a specific moment in time and an incredible place. A place you, your family, your loved ones and your children's children will want to visit time and time again.
Hiring Dan and his staff will be one of the best decisions you will make and will bring you peace of mind. We don't ruin your schedule or make you late to your own party! The value of what we provide is much greater than the price we charge --guaranteed! Anything of value requires an investment that not everyone is able to make. We have committed whole-heartedly to insure your success and overwhelming satisfaction and have proven it time and time again. We have limited availability.
Here's the bottom line-- you could spend around $3,000 with any other Jacksonville wedding photographers and NOT get any finished products or the exceptional quality we offer --on the other hand when you hire us you get world-class quality with full retouching AND the finest quality Heirloom PhotoArt ® album included! Giving you the best possible value. Why would you settle for less?
Call us now at 398-7668 and we will do everything we can to help you fulfill your dreams!

"To make an informed decision, review all options thoroughly, don't dismiss what may be your best option based on one thing. Know what you are saying NO to."
"Choosing a website design by looking at lots of websites online makes sense, but choosing a wedding photographer based on websites is like buying an engagement ring online, the final product always looks different in person."
You deserve the best! Everything we do is customized for you!
Frequently Asked Questions about Jacksonville Wedding Photographers
"Today too many bride’s are disappointed because they settled for unfinished digital files on a CD that they later learned are unable to give them the family heirloom album they had really hoped for. Years later their unrealized dreams are deteriating in a drawer somewhere. That’s why we include a finished album in every package.”
For years you've dreamt of your extraordinary wedding day. All your hard work and preparation will insure that it's not only beautiful and elegant, but fun ~it will be like none other! A 'cookie-cutter' approach isn't quite your style.

Nothing about you, your relationship or your event is fake or cheezy, so why should your photography be? We are passionate about capturing the real heart-felt moments of your day along with all the fine details and style of your wedding in a unique and artistic way without Interrupting the natural flow of the day. That's why we create an unlimited amount of images in high-definition photography to naturally capture your day, in a stress-free and spontaneously fun way!
After the flowers have faded, and the food's been enjoyed, the moments remembered on your unique wedding day past, will be shared and remembered through your beautiful wedding-day photographs preserved in a Heirloom PhotoArt ® storybook wedding album that will last for multiple generations. We have the experience, skill and talent needed to create great images without: imposing our schedule on you; bossing you around; keeping you away from your reception or guests; making you do cheezy poses and without stealing the spotlight from the bride and groom.
Our unobtrusive stress-free, artistic, photojournalism style and adaptability along with our customized wedding photography packages and albums insure you get exactly what YOU want! We capture what really happened instead of just what the photographer made happen! Spontaneous, romantic & fun ...not contrived. Your day ...your way!

Your 'photographer friend' may not have the skill, experience, talent or equipment to do anything similar to what we can do for you. Why settle for less? You can find cheaper, but you won't find better! You deserve the best! Real Photos bring back real heart-felt memories, faked or forced photos bring back bad memories! The choice is yours.
One of your most important wedding keepsakes (besides each other) will be your cherished wedding album. If you don't get your wedding covered properly to begin with, you won't have anything but regrets to work with later. The bitterness of poor coverage & low quality remain long after the sweetness of low price is forgot. Don't spend all your budget on the things that won't last. In the whole scheme of things, professional photography isn't expensive ~ it's priceless. We have covered more than 560 events, our extensive experience and outstanding customer satisfaction are your assurance that your event photography will be a success! Don't trust your family legacy to the inexperienced!
No two weddings are alike just like no two photographers are alike. Now-a-days EVERYONE is a photographer and every 'Wedding Photographer' has pretty pictures on their website. (too many are of models, fake brides and seminar training pictures or lots of pretty detail shots that look nothing like anyting from your wedding day--creating false advertising) Do they really have the skill, equipment and experience to be able to do a professional job in a courteous and timely manner and meet your highest expectations? (your job is to dig for the truth --look at real albums and actual finished products, not samples or advertising hype.)
In the end what will they really do for you? Will your wedding-day photos capture all the important emotions of the day and bring you back to that exact moment in time. Or will you be disappointed with poorly exposed, out-of-focus photos that you paid good money for, but aren't much better than your guests took? We work closely with you, throughout the complete process without imposing a 'cookie-cutter style' on you. We work to create what is really important to you.
We arn't right for everybody, (and we won't work with just anybody) but if you like our style and it looks like we are a good match, let's get together with your fiancee' and your mother (your bestfriend, coordinator, dad, etc.) to insure we are a good match and put together a customized package for your special day before another bride books your date. Call or e-mail us to schedule an appointment. We also offer evening and weekend appointments for your convenience.
Too many brides have been told to shop for just a CD, rather than for the finished products they really wanted and have been disappointed in the end. Today they regret that they paid a lot of money for CD's that now just sit in a drawer, they wish they had spent the money to get a Heirloom PhotoArt ® album. Don't hire a photographer unless they guarantee your final printed products. A CD isn't a finished product and comes with no guarantees it may only bring disappointment in the end when you discover it is incapable of creating the printed products you were hoping for.
A photographer who is working with you from beginning to end (and guarantees the finished products) is shooting to create the perfect images for a printed album and will be much more meticulous than one who is only shooting to quickly burn a CD/USB and leave you stranded. To insure the best quality possible, we do ALL our own printing inhouse. Our goal is to tell the real story of your wedding day, not dictate it for you! When it comes to the wedding photography; we will capture all the fun, spontaneity and grandeur of your day without getting in your way!
Our printed Heirloom PhotoArt® looks better and lasts longer than digital files -guaranteed!
You deserve the uniquely customized Great Wedding Photography services and archival products we offer. We stand behind all our products 100%. If you don't like it, we will re-do it. No problem, no worries! As an independent small business, we aren't the photographer for the masses. We will capture those distinguishing moments, the unique essence of you, your relationships and your event in a spontaneous, stress-free, natural and fun way and then archivally preserve those memories for all time.
We retouch EVERY image we take, use up to 5 different cameras and 2 professional photographers at every event. Our Heirloom PhotoArt ® prints have been tested to NOT fade for hundreds of years --for generations of enjoyment! WE DO NOT use fake brides, models or pictures from photography seminars on our website or in our sample albums. ALL our pictures are from actual brides and real events! We have covered over 560 events in 15 years, you will benefit by our experience! We backup every wedding image twice and every ordered image 3 times and store them in a fireproof safe (at no small cost to us). We also have 12 tera-bytes of RAID redundant storage. If the photography is important, don't settle for less. We don't skimp on quality, neither should you! We have the skill, experience and equipment to do it right!

Do yourself a favor, DO NOT hire a photographer (at any price) who doesn't use multiple cameras, a second professional photographer (not someone they solicited last week from facebook or craigs list) and have a multi-tiered backup workflow in place, otherwise you will lose everything when their equipment fails or their hard drive crashes! Don't spend $3,000 on a photographer who doesn't include an album but only supplies a flash drive or CD of poor quality images and ONLY hire someone who provides fully-guaranteed, archivally-finished printed products, otherwise you may just end up with vapor ware! Past performance is a good indication of future success. Established homeowners with a good reputation and a stable track record are a much better bet than renters who are new to town and only meet you at Starbucks and provide you with this weeks cell number.
