Just do it. Jim is a great photographer. I have used Jim in my work life and now in my personal life. He photographed our wedding recently and he did a fabulous job. He is the consummate professional and knows exactly how to set up shots for maximum affect. He is a master at candid shots and unexpected moment-type shots. He interacts with the crowd in a way that makes it seem like he is just one of the guests. We are so pleased with the outcome of our photos and his prices are very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend him or to use him again, should the need arise.
He was amazing and made my wedding planning infinitely easier. I had to plan it all in about a month and he really helped me by being Flexible, Fun and aFFordable!! My wedding party and myself found him really easy to work with and made us feel relaxed and like we could be our silly selves during all the process!! We truly appreciated that. He also has little bits of advice for the day-of so the bride and cohorts arent running around like headless chickens. haha! I definitely kept that all in mind.
Jim Dorsey Photography is just that. It is only Jim Dorsey. I have been a Photographer most of my life, and made it a career in 1984. I am a full time professional that works whenever a client wishes me to. I go places others won't go. I do events other photographers don't want to do. I will work with almost any budget, will always be on time, and never let a customer down. I am insured, I pay taxes, I pay sales taxes, and I have a real business.
I use the best equipment, and have it checked and serviced regularly. I leave nothing to chance. I do work alone most of the time. If I had assistants or second photographers, I couldn't work for the prices I charge, And no one shoots like I do. I like to start a couple of hours before a wedding. Allowing time for photos on wedding day is the one sure way to have the photos you want, the way you want them. Some venues will only allow 1 hour prior and have a cap on the total time. Fixed time venues need people experienced at being part of the team. When its all over you only have the photos, but you don't want to sacrifice everything for photography.
I have photographed all types of people from Presidents, Senators, Congress, Celebrities, Sports Professionals, to school kids, Maintenance People, Bartenders, Postal Workers, Mayors, Police Chiefs, and the guy that picks up the trash. I've done weddings from most cultures and religions, and of all ages. I am truly at home behind a camera. When things go wrong, I always have a plan "B". I truly love what I do.
Most of my pricing comes without rules. I hate time limits. It's as stressful for me as it is for you. I always include all original material, and will respond to almost all requests.
My wedding packages start at $895 and I will customize to fit budgets. Check the web for all the details, and I will still shoot FILM. Call for a chat and ask questions.
