Event Pavilion Reception

Testimonial from a very happy bride…


Thank you!!!!
We wanted to send a big thank you to the staff at Ridge Creek Golf Course for a job well done. After contemplating where to hold our wedding and wedding reception, we decided to hold our special day at Ridge Creek Golf Course and could not have been happier with our decision to do so. From our first phone call to inquire about the reservation to the completion of our wedding, we could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. Rosa, the sales and marketing director was very professional and so helpful that she was more than willing to go above and beyond to make our day exceptional. Thank you Rosa! From the waitstaff to the bartenders, everthing was perfect. All of our special requests were taken care of and accommodated with a smile.

We thank all of you for a very memorable day with our family and friends, it could not have been so special without all of your help.

We give you an A+!

Sincerely, Mr. & Mrs. Baca

Premier Bride Showplace Tips

You may find that the more time you can save in planning your wedding, the better. Our bridal show can be the one stop shopping experience you need to plan your entire wedding, especially if you go prepared. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of Premier Bride Showplace:


  • Plan In Advance – Make a list of what you will need most and what your budget will allow for each item and service. Be sure to leave some room for the unexpected – you never know when you may see something you’ll want to have that you never thought of.
  • Be Ready To Make Decisions – Bring the major decision-makers to Premier Bride Showplace with you. If you are the major decision-maker, bring someone with you that you can bounce ideas off of. Be ready to book your favorite vendors there at the show. Some exhibitors may even offer day-of-show booking discounts.
  • Dress For The Occasion – Remember to wear comfortable shoes. Need we explain more on this one?
  • Fashion Forward – Bring a notepad with you to jot down any dresses or tuxes you like during the fashion show. It will be much easier for you to remember which Bridal Salon featured the gowns you like. You’ll also want to be able to take notes when attending the seminars.
  • Above all, have fun! Bridal shows may be useful and informative, but they’re also a blast. You’ll have a great time with your family and friends – planning your perfect day!

MVP Weddings Shares Some Highlights…


MVP Weddings would love to provide a beautiful, cinematic video of your wedding day. To see if what they provide a good match for what you’re looking for, they recommend the following:

  1. Check out their videos and see what you think
  2. Compare their wedding packages (or build your own)
  3. See if they’re available for your wedding and reserve your day

We invite you to check out Kat and Eric’s Wedding Highlights from MVP Weddings HERE. We also encourage you to check out their BLOG as well.


Shortly after we were married in 2003 we began creating wedding videos for other couples. 8 years later I (Matt) am the primary cinematographer and editor while my wife (Susan) adds art, class and style to our wedding videos from a bride’s perspective. I (Matt) have also put on a few pounds since then 🙂

We are the owners of MVP Weddings and we partner with other talented cinematographers to create beautiful, cinematic wedding videos and provide a wonderful customer experience for couples. We lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 13 years and moved to Fresno, CA in the summer of 2011 to be closer to our family. We would be delighted to create a beautiful wedding video with the art of cinema that tells your story. Thank you very much for considering our videography service, and may God bless you and your very special relationship of love and commitment in marriage.

Featured Vendor – Fresno Photographer Mark Janzen

Wedding Info

Fresno Photographer Mark Janzen, Fresno Wedding Photography and Portrait Photography


“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.
