Here at CSM Photography I love to have a hand select set of options. What does this help do? It helps to cut out the unnecessary need to "figure out" the photographic package you've ever dreamed of and allow you to have fun throughout this crazy process.

Your wedding package will start with plenty of time, a second photographer a heirloom album & an online gallery host your precious moments.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Collections are what make the selection easy. Here at CSM Photography I want you to go home with something special. Each and every couple has a different outlook on their day so I try and make the selection process as easy as possible by including certain take-homes like albums or parent albums in different collections. Whatever your timeline, I want this to be a lasting heirloom for your family to cherish for a lifetime.
Engagement Sessions come with every collection! This session is meant to be a nice ice-breaker with you and the camera and also myself. We get to know each other a little bit and to have a blast.
I am fully insured and would be happy to provide your venue with an insurance certificate upon request.

Insuring that your images will be kept for a lifetime is very important and my system is simple. Back-up, back-up, back-up. I have a series of RAID systems that backup your documentation 3 times. I even have a off-site solution so in the event of a life changing event, they will be safe.
