Experience:

An event or occurrence which leaves an impression on someone.

 

When you book Archer Inspired for your photography needs, you won't just pay a bill and get some photos.

I don't believe in that. 

I thrive off of relationships. I love getting to know you and you getting to know me. We spend time chatting and planning out the session. I work closely with you to make sure we have created a timeline and payment plan that works specifically to your needs. I'm there to offer insight or advice about your wardrobe choices or best location for your photos. At the time of your session, we will already have that established knowledge of one another and feel comfortable from the get-go. During your session, you'll realize that it doesn't feel like a normal photo shoot. It's natural, it's real. It feels like a couple friends hanging out and laughing. I believe in the lifestyle approach to my photography. I believe in feeling out the situation and going with it. Each couple, family, person, day, time, is all so different and unique. So I treat each photo shoot like the first. Each time I show up to capture someone's memories, it is unique and personal to them. It's not static or boring. When you choose Archer Inspired as your photographer, expect to have a kinetic, energetic, fun, and easy-going time as we capture your memories.

Investment:

To allocate money in the expectation of some benefit in the future.

No, this isn't pricing. This isn't a price tag on a box of cookies that will last you a week (or let's be real, a day). This is a true investment.

Your memories deserve to be captured in a real and authentic way. So I highly suggest you look at photography from an investment standpoint. Think about this: do you still look at images from your great-grandparents? Or from your parents wedding day? If you're like me and many others, I'm sure you do. Do you think your mom still cares about spending the money for those photos? Probably not. She cares about the fact that she HAS the photos at all. So the photos you take today will appreciate in value every year. Your grandkids one day will be so happy you decided to take family photos that year, your future daughter-in-law will be grateful to see the photos of her spouse from when they were three. I promise you, in that moment, you won't even remember how much you spent on the photos. 

Your memories are worth it, trust me.

WeddingS + Engagements

You're probably looking here because you want to see if my services align with your wedding budget. Well, I'm sure at this point you've already emailed a few photographers asking for a price list because their sites said something like, "contact for pricing" or just gave you a vague price range. Not here. Not me. I'm about transparency. Why hide what I charge when you're the one writing the check anyways?

 

Engagement & Proposal Sessions begin at $400

 

** Some images taken while second shooting for the following photographers: Buena Lane, Diana Lake, and Clane Gessel

Portraits

Families | Maternity | Newborn | Individuals

Individual Portraits begin at $350

Group Portraits begin at $450

Have a vision? Let's make it happen. Want me to take the ropes and plan it? Let's do it. My sessions take a lifestyle approach rather than overly posed. So if you're looking for the model-clean skin and perfectly posed photos, then this isn't for you. This is for the real, the authentic, the true moments. YOUR story captured, however that looks. 

"I totally didn't feel like it was a session. I knew she was taking pictures and such but it was so in between talking and walking that I totally didn't pay attention to that. Now seeing all the images I'm like wow, she got this, and this" - Ewa Kuc
