Most brides engages us for 4 to 8 hours, but we have done much more; 
We've spent up to 19 hours over a 3 day weekend  with some bridal parties.!
Of one wedding, the family ordered 10 Art Leather Craft Albums 
of 40 - 8x10's prints in each album for various family members - 
spending $ 1000s more than the modest initial photo package. 
 This was an elected option, the client must have loved the photography !

We typically photograph & video throughout the full time 
we are with bride and bridal party at the celebration.

Our prices lists the least amount of coverage & images we can do 
at our lowest price,
yet we can do far more.  

For the higher base price that most studios charge
you'd be astonished at what we can create & deliver.

Ted Elden prefers to use all digital equipment,
offering more images, diversity, greater quality in exposure, composition,
and more options with your album, prints, and purchasing your source images.

Elden's Sony Alpha 12 MP camera offers over a thousand variations on creating each image. 
It takes much skill, dexterity, knowledge & experience to operate effectively 
such a complicated optical & technologically advanced instrument.
