With Wedding Portraits, you’ve got only one chance to get it right. So, don’t take chances... Let Portraits FX capture those moments for you. This day is too important to trust to an amateur, a family friend, or a low quality, consumer-grade camera. We have over 30 years of experience photographing weddings. We have invested in and use only top-of-the-line Canon professional digital cameras. We are members of Professional Photographers of America & Wedding & Portrait Photographers International.
At Portraits fx, we understand that your wedding day is the most special day of your life. We work our magic to document and preserve those special memories for generations to come.
CAPTURE THE MEMORIES: Months, sometimes years, of preparation are poured into making your wedding day a special event, but your day, with all its magical moments, flies by so quickly. You need a professional working for you to catch those fleeting moments – to capture them forever. We focus on the details that make your wedding special.
We aren't just "big picture" people. The details matter. Your perfect wedding day is made up of thousands of little details... from the sparkle on your rings to the icing on your cake. Our photographers are ever mindful of each detail and work hard to preserve them for you.
Great portraits only begin in the camera: our digital artists create collages, montages, and albums that are works of art, rather than just a scrapbook full of snapshots. Our albums are as unique as each bride. Each photo in our albums are selected by the bride and groom. Then, our digital artists work to enhance each photo and transform the image to its final portrait masterpiece, and then the happy couple approves the final layout prior to printing.

We offer Engagement Sessions, Save-The-Date Cards, Wedding Albums, Guest Books and so much more.

If you would like to get professional prints, you can order them directly from my website. My prices are very reasonable (and you will NEVER beat the quality at WalMart or Walgreens or any local retail printer all of which use cheap paper and cheap dyes), but you have no obligation to get your prints from me. If you are looking to buy a large number of prints (especially wallets where you are wanting 100+ of the same pose), then we can see if a discount may be given on print prices (I contract with several professional print houses that give discounts after a certain number of prints, and I am happy to pass on those savings when possible).
Please do not hesitate to contact me.
