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

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.

Featured Vendor – The Painted Table

 

About The Painted Table

Since 2008, The Painted Table, has been creating unique and delicious food combinations for weddings, anniversaries, corporate gatherings and special occasions through out the Central Valley. Voted one of the top catering businesses in the Fresno area, co-owners and personal chef’s Rodney Hansen and Jeromie Garza have deep roots in the culture of the San Joaquin Valley.

Rodney’s family were almond and grape farmers. Committed to their Danish traditions, they stopped every day and 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to relax with family and enjoy coffee, tea, fresh squeezed juice and pastries. Rod’s family traditions helped him develop his passion for cooking using locally grown produce and ingredients. He attended the School of Culinary Arts at the Art Institute of Seattle where he earned a degree in both Pastry and Culinary Arts. After graduating, he worked at the Culinary Institute’s West Coast Campus, Greystone, in St. Helena, California. Rod also worked for the Sorrento Hotel in Seattle, Washington as well as for Dilettante Chocolate, as a pastry chef.

While Jeromie also has a love for the culinary arts, his path to the catering business took a different route. He spent many years in the dental field developing his customer service and marketing skills. He met Rod through work and learned everything about Culinary Arts from him. With their combined skills the two decided to open Magical Cakes in Visalia.

Then in 2008, Rod and Jeromie created The Painted Table. What started as a personal chef service, has quickly grown into a successful catering business. Clients have come to appreciate their signature dishes that are visually appealing and simply delicious.

Rod says their attention to detail makes them stand out in the catering community. The Painted Table offers unique options to its client that can’t be found elsewhere. They will customize a menu to meet their client’s specific needs, using locally grown, fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Their table settings are so visually appealing, that it looks like a work of art – hence their name, The Painted Table.

In June of 2011, The Painted Table moved into the restaurant formerly known as the Daily Planet, next to the historical Tower Theater. This new space, which can accommodate as many as 250 people, is perfect for cocktail parties, corporate gatherings or even intimate events. They can also partner with the Tower Theater to provide their clients with access to the theater for larger events such as weddings. Finally, as an added value for theater patrons, The Painted Table will be partnering with the Tower Theater for selected events, providing dinner and show packages.

Although they moved to the beautifully restored Daily Planet, The Painted Table is mainly an off-site catering operation, traveling throughout the Central Valley and as far as Los Angeles or San Francisco to cater special events.

Rod and Jeromie pride themselves in making every
occasion’s menu a delicious work of art. All clients are treated with the upmost respect and care. Consultations are set up at either the Daily Planet or the event location to go over menu options as well as secure the date. Once a client has secured their date and made their deposit, they can set up a menu tasting.

If at all possible, they prefer to book events 6 months in advance, especially during the peak seasons during the holidays and summer, the earlier the better.

Rod and Jeromie love what they do and it shows in the service they provide. In a few short years, they have quickly become the go to caterers for the client who wishes to create a memorable event for their guests, with amazing culinary creations that simply cannot be found with any other caterer.

California Wine Month Wine Tasting Reception

California Wine Month Wine Tasting Reception

Location: CRU Wine Company

The wineries of the Madera Wine Trail along with excellent local restaurants from Fresno and Madera will join to celebrate September as California Wine Month. Taste excellent Madera Wines and enjoy delicious handcrafted appetizers, accompanied by live music. Tickets will become available soon. Click HERE for more information.

About Cru Wine Company

Founded in 2003, (originally as Mariposa Wine Company) Cru Wine Company is a portfolio of handcrafted artisan style wines that embrace the incredible diversity of California’s premium viticultural areas. The Cru, Carmichael and Yosemite View brands each feature only the varietals that thrive in their respective regions; each label with its own unique character and focus.

Owner Richard Spencer has had a keen interest in fine wines for many years, a pastime cultivated with long-time family friend and partner Michael Conway. For these two entrepreneurs, the dream of owning a winery is now a welcome reality.

Based in Madera, California winemaking at Cru Wine Company is overseen by Winemaker Ken Post.  Centrally located in order to source from appellations ranging from Santa Barbara to Napa Valley, Cru strives to deliver quality and value at its respective price points.

Ken Post – Winemaker


Ken Post, a native Californian, began his career on the family ranch in Paso Robles. The Post family farmed 1800 acres of alfalfa and various grains until the ranch was sold in the late 70’s.  At that time, Ken pursued a second career in highway construction. His firm contracted with the State of California and private organizations in providing highway paving, resurfacing, and oiling services. While this was a very lucrative business, it allowed very little time for the most important thing of all, his family. Thus in 1997 Ken was presented an offer he could not refuse, selling the company.

Retired at forty might seem like a good thing to some people. Going from 60-80 hour work weeks to being at home 24-7 was an adjustment for Ken and his family.  Despite his knack for rearranging the spice cabinets and every other item in the house, his wife Julie and three children Brianna, Dylan, and Cameron started to ask Ken when he was going to find a real job.

With a passion for wine and love of farming, Ken enrolled in Fresno State’s Enology Viticulture program. After graduating from the Enology program Ken started his new ambition of wine production at Prospero Oak Hollow Wineries in Madera, California. Three years later Ken’s other passion of off road motorcycle riding forced another retirement for 10 months while he learned how to walk again after severely breaking a leg. Once healed it was time to once again pursue the passion of winemaking.
