Akelis Studios Photography
About this pro
I am a natural light photographer offering romantic wedding, enticing boudoir, and cheerful engagement portraits to match both budget and style. My aim is always to make the most of the light, working to celebrate those outdoor weddings in gardens, on the beach, and even in the soft glow of sunset in the forest. From country love with the gold of long grass and cowboy boots, to the blues and brights of the beach, every wedding has a glow of their own and that is the key to these beautiful images. Becoming part of the flow of the day and to tell the couple's story while they celebrate the start of a new life together. From capturing those sweet little details to the final dance and kiss at the end of the night, it is all magical and deserves the best moments to remember forever.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?There are three basic kinds of package offered. An elopement or engagement session price which is just a flat $100 per hour for the number of hours and a price per print or for a custom album. For more typical all day weddings there are two package styles, the first being a single photographer for seven hours and including an album, and the second with an assistant photographer provided for either half or all of the seven hours and an album and online gallery for guests to order their own copies of prints. Couples can then add engagement or boudoir portraits at a reduced price to round out their selection.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Because weddings are so personal, a face-to-face meeting is one of the best ways to get to know this person who will be such a part of your day. After meeting and discussing your story and what means the most to you, planning an engagement photo session in a beautiful spot is the next fun step. For adventurous brides, a boudoir shoot might be part of the pre-wedding plans too with a saucy little book of all the beautiful photos for her special someone to have as a gift before their wedding day. Available by phone or email all the way from first inquiry to those last minute gitters the morning of your wedding, you can ask all those crazy questions without worry about n response.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Photography and art skills all through a combination of occasional art classes or trial and error, my education focused on business and building the client support that sets a good company apart from a great one. It is why you can always reach out with questions and know that there are lots of networked connections to help you answer even non-photography questions about your day.
