Lots of New things!!


I don’t know about you, but I am sitting here wondering how it is already August?! It’s been a great year for J. Graeler Photography so far and we want to share a few updates with you!
Back to school prep is in motion and before we know it fall will be here along with cooler days and all of the holidays quickly following. Of course we are suckers for the fall season and holidays, so we are planning ahead for Fall and Christmas mini sessions. We have been given the approval for Pumpkin Patch mini sessions and are working on getting approval for Christmas minis at a Christmas tree farm!  The upcoming mini sessions we be very limited sessions so if you are interested please let me know and I will make sure you are scheduled as soon as the info is released. I do not have the final pricing and dates nailed down but these will be a lower price point than a normal photo session and will include a few digital photos for download and the option to purchase all the final digital files from your session. That way if you are only looking for a few for Christmas cards/gifts this will be perfect! Two weekends will be planned for both fall and mini sessions.
Speaking of future sessions, with upcoming weddings and fall photo sessions already booked, the rest of 2015 will have very limited photo sessions available. If you are planning any session, or even considering a session of any sort please touch base with me ASAP!  
JGP is now offering a digital download option for all photo sessions. This simply eliminates the need for a dvd of the photos. A pro to this would be you get your photos instantly with your download code to your computer. The con to this, you do not have a physical DVD of the photo sent to you as a backup. I cannot stress enough to backup your photos, or save in two separate computers no matter if you choose digital download or have a DVD of them. There are great free services to store you photos online, dropbox, amazon prime members, icloud, online backups, etc. Going forward when your session is complete I will include a password for digital download in email and if you prefer to have the DVD just let me know and I will get that mailed to you. **Reminder: JGP only keeps your photo session photos for 6 months. All weddings are kept for one year. I cannot stress enough to burn extra copies of the DVDs, get prints or books made, save to an online backup. I hope to never hear that someone lost their photos after JGP has gotten rid of them.
Referrals are a great compliment to our work. As a thank you to anyone who refers someone to J. Graeler Photography, they will receive one free 8×10 of your choice after the referred person’s session is complete. If a wedding is booked from a referral, the person who referred the bride and groom will get $35.00 to put toward your next session!

Have I said before we love weddings? You don’t have to have the big wedding and reception to have a wedding right? Todd and Emily got married at the courthouse so they decided a session at the old courthouse in the county they are married in was perfect. It is much a neat building and it fit them so well.

Although it rained a ridiculous amount of rain after this session which put a damper on the outdoor party that was planned, at the end of the day they are still married and happy.
Congratulations to Todd & Emily and thanks for letting JGP capture your wedding day!
