We want to create a session that speaks to you and your families story. We will call you and discuss what is important the most to you so that we can capture those expressions in your portrait session. This is critical to creating artwork that is not only beautiful, but matters more as time passes.
Your session will take place at your choosing: Our midtown Sacramento studio, your home, or an outdoor location. We will discuss all the options during your pre shoot consultation.
We will prepare 30-40 photographs from your session and present them with a cinematic presentation of your story. At your personalized design consultation and ordering session we will help you go through these photos and design all your final artwork. This is your special time to make all design decisions and purchases. We do require that all decision makers attend as it is important that everyone has input and we can complete the experience in a timely manner. We try to do design consults the same day of the shoot.
The session retainer fee of $250 covers the photographers creative time, all pre shoot consultation and planning, editors culling and preparation of images, and personalized design consultation preparation and studio design session.

As a married couple based in Sacramento, California, we value marriage and believe your wedding should be a love filled day. we aim to help you slow down and create quiet moments during the longest, fastest, most memorable day of your life. We are often mistaken for the other when people first meet us in person. dee is short for De'andre and kris is short for Kristina. We both are equal partners and full time photographers, but have our separate roles in our business. Dee has a love for the dramatic. He loves to create images from a perspective not otherwise viewed by the typical eye. He sees light and reflection and creates art in the most unique ways. Kris enjoys the classic and emotion. She loves timeless beauty and soft romance. Together we are able to blend both unique styles together to deliver a portfolio of images to our clients that encompass both of our artistic eyes. We have two crazy boys (Noah & Caleb) who we love with all our hearts. they are often our inspiration and little models. They keep us young and full of energy and have helped keep our perspective on life and love.
