Print vs. Digital

As a certified professional photographer located at Smith Mountain Lake, VA (servicing surrounding areas including Lynchburg, Rocky Mount, and Roanoke/Salem) I seek serious clients that understand the “value” of an amazing photograph. Photography can be one of the most meaningful investments you make in your lifetime. Photographs capture a moment in time that can never be replicated or duplicated… Due to the fact that most events photographed by a professional photographer are “once in a lifetime” events, I go above and beyond to work with each client individually, based on their wants/ needs. My ultimate goal is to capture images that show the personality of the family, bride, mother, senior, etc…. being photographed. After attending numerous seminars, hands-on courses, and online training classes…there is one thing I tend to hold dear to my heart… it is the importance of purchasing professional PRINTS… I have chosen to explain this in the “investment” menu because so many people are asking for digital images ONLY. Let me explain my thoughts on why I feel it is important to “invest” in PRINTS. (digital images are available for purchase and can only be printed up to 8×10 in size) A minimum order must be purchased in order to have access to purchasing digitals, again to ensure you have prints that you will cherish for a lifetime.


Why PRINT and not DIGITAL?


One: I use a professional lab to order prints, canvases, and other print material (not the local drugstore that spits out any ole’ quality… and with my name attached)


Two: I borrowed this phrase from a photographer I truly admire… I have NEVER gone into someone’s home and seen a disk hanging on the wall nor have someone say “I LOVE my new disk!”


Three: Who is to say the disk will work in 5 years or so? I cannot tell you how many brides I have spoken to that never had their wedding pictures printed… they are still in a drawer somewhere.


Four: My goal as a photographic artist is to work with clients that “value” an amazing photograph and ultimately want a piece of WALL ART that they will cherish forever.

  • I CARE that you get the quality you pay for
  • I CARE that you walk away with WALL ART that will bring joy to you throughout your lifetime
  • I CARE that I provide the best customer service and the best possible images to ensure that your “once in a lifetime” moments are recorded.

Please email me directly for questions pertaining to pricing, session information, etc.


YES I do offer online galleries, but again, I use a professional lab to ensure the quality that I promise….. because I CARE!!


Thanks for stopping in and I hope to see you in the studio or on the lake soon!
