What Makes Choke Cherry Different?

You want more than just beautiful photographs; you want a stress-free portrait experience! You want advice on what to wear, or where to have your session, or simply how to look your best! So you need a photographer who will, not only capture your memories but also make the process convenient and fun, and make you and your family look amazing!

It's 100% OKAY to be nervous in front of the camera! Most people are (myself included)! Whether this is your first time having your portraits professionally created or your tenth time, you'll quickly discover that I'm not like any other photographer out there: I am dedicated to helping you every step of the way. From our very first meeting, I'll help you develop the vision for your session to assure you are not just happy, but over-the-moon thrilled with your portraits! We'll plan the most flattering outfits, the best locations, and the perfect props. During your session, I will help guide you into natural poses, with genuine smiles and I'll take the time to fix stray hairs and crooked collars so you look your best! I also offer full-service post-production with professional hand-retouching, and after your session, I'll help you through the ordering process so you get the images you love on the products you want!

Unlike other photographers, I am proud to offer you my personal promise that you will love your photos or we'll re-shoot! I offer flexible scheduling, either on-location or in-studio. And since my studio is fully equipped with professional gear and lighting, you can schedule a session any time of the day, regardless of time or weather! We can even take the lights outdoors to create stunning sunset images and unique night-time portraits. All of this adds up to one thing for you: no stress!

The name Choke Cherry is used in memory of my mother; not long before I was born, my parents were vintners of wine and their most popular creation was the elegantly sweet choke cherry wine. Because of their creations, back in the days of C.B. radio (citizen's band radio...think back to "Smokey and the Bandit") my father went by the handle "Bootlegger" and my mother was known as "Choke Cherry".
