Featured Vendor – Fresno Photographer Mark Janzen

Wedding Info

Fresno Photographer Mark Janzen, Fresno Wedding Photography and Portrait Photography

Weddings

“It’s probably not the most manly thing to admit, but I get all kinds of excited when I have a wedding to photograph.  On your wedding day, it’s like I’m on a swivel trying to grab every little bit of it that I can fit onto those tiny little memory cards loaded in my cameras.  And when it’s all said and done, and you’re on your honeymoon, and I’m here sitting at my computer going through all those memories, little and big, there’s always that moment when I realize that I have a big old, stupid grin on my face, that I know I did right.

I’m looking forward to looking at the images from your wedding with that big stupid grin on my face and watching your faces light up as you relieve that amazing day through my photographs.”

– Mark Janzen

We want you!  How do we book you?

Call me or email me! Of course we’ll need to check your wedding date to ensure I’m available, so don’t wait to get in touch. Wedding dates start to fill up as far as 18 months in advance. To hold your date, you will need to select one of my Wedding Photography Collections, sign the contract, and pay a $1500 booking fee that is applied towards your final balance.

How much does it cost?

Well, that ultimately depends a lot on what you choose in terms of coverage, albums, etc. Unfortunately, this is a complicated question that’s really difficult to fully cover with words and pictures on the internet. I encourage anyone who may be interested to come in for a consultation so you can see and touch the finished product. At your consultation we can go over the different pricing options in greater detail. To determine if we’re your budget ballpark, I have a basic collection for shorter wedding coverage that runs $3450 for 6 hours of coverage plus the digital files from your wedding day*. All other collections include full day coverage (typically 10-12 hours), an album, digital files from the wedding day, and a flexible studio credit to apply towards album upgrades, prints, etc. These full collections start at $4950.

I also have an exceptionally talented associate photographer, Craig Kohlruss, working out of the studio. His rates are a little lower starting at $2450 for basic coverage and digital files while collections including an album start at $3450. Craig’s pricing is hourly based with larger collections including more time. His booking fee is slightly lower as well at $1200.

*This collection is only available in the Fresno, Visalia, and Modesto areas.

Do you offer Engagement Sessions?

Engagement sessions are offered on a complimentary basis, upon request, with any wedding booking. Please note that this session is typically shot in an area local to Fresno, CA. For couples living, and getting married in, the Bay Area, I will come to you for your session.

Will you travel out of town?  What is your travel fee?

Absolutely I will travel!  I’ve shot weddings all over California, Nevada, and one special trip to the Air Force Academy in Colorado.  I’m game to go wherever you want me.  For weddings in the Bay Area, Central Valley, the Central Coast, and Tahoe there is no additional travel fee when you book me (Mark) as your photographer. If your wedding is outside of these areas, travel fees are calculated on a case by case basis depending on air-fare, accommodations, rental car, etc. Travel fees for collections with Craig as your photographer are handled on an individual basis, but in general there are no fees for weddings in the greater Fresno area and Yosemite.

Do you shoot alone, or do you have a 2nd photographer?

As a general rule I shoot alone, and all the work you see here on this site is my own.  I’m firmly committed to shooting your wedding in the way that it naturally unfolds and at the highest quality level possible. I believe that by shooting alone, it allows your day to unfold in a more natural manner. It’s far easier for you and your friends and family to ignore and act naturally around one photographer than an entire team of them roaming around. This does mean that I must also commit myself to working harder, to cover your wedding from many different angles and vantage points, but I believe the results are well worth it.

When will I see my images?

My typical turnaround time on a wedding is about 4 weeks.  My goal is always to finish as quickly as possible while maintaining a high level of quality.

How many pictures do you take?

A lot!  And then I edit them down to the very best.  I do eliminate the blinks, the flash mis-fires, the worst of the awkward expressions (don’t worry I will leave the funny ones in), and the shots where someone walked in front of me as I clicked the shutter.  Many times you will also hear me shoot 3 shots in rapid succession – I will pull the best of the three to keep.  How many will I deliver is the better question and that typically lands anywhere from around 300 to as many as 800 depending on how long my coverage is and how much prep and reception coverage there is.

Do you provide the digital files, the “disk”?

All of my wedding collections include the high-resolution, color-corrected digital files from your wedding day.  I also provide a release granting you permission to make all the prints your heart desires.  Files from your engagement session are available for purchase after the session.
