Founded in Bellaire, Texas in 1999 as a sports photography business, Blue Moon Imagery has evolved into a photography company which now specializes in portraiture and fine art compositions. While we still enjoy shooting sports when called upon to do so, we've found our niche in capturing people at their best, in more intimate settings. We provide on-location, nationwide destination photography services, and in-studio sessions. In addition to beautiful, vibrant, and artistic portraiture, we also offer photo restoration services and original artworks and custom wall art groupings designed to compliment any home decor. Our clients are able to choose from dozens of products produced by the finest photo labs in the USA ranging from simple prints to ginormous wall canvasses, prints on everything from fine art paper to high gloss metal and acrylics, to beautifully bound books and albums.
We know that your time is precious so we make ordering simple, too! Our clients preview their portraits via our client portal on this website, select the images they want, the products/prints/quantities they want of each image and then place their order directly from this website! This means, no high pressure sales, no guilt trips, and best of all.... no rushing through the selection process! This ordering process works great for us, too, because you order what YOU want, not what WE suggest. You see, I was a"daddy" before I was a photographer. My wife and I used that having to deal with salespeople when we returned to photo studios when we returned to pick up our kids portrait packages. They'd lay out 5x's as many portraits as those which were included in the promo package they used to get us into the studio in the first place. Wouldn't you know it, but the best looking portraits of our kids were never included in our pre-purchased package and we'd usually wind up having to spend much more than we'd budgeted for, lest the studio destroy those beautiful photos of our babies. We don't believe in that kind of sales tactic. If we've learned nothing else, we've learned that happy customers are repeat customers. The second benefit of our ordering system is that you can order at your leisure and without having to take time to meet with us all over again. And we have so much faith in our preferred photo labs that we have your order shipped directly to you, so you get your "stuff" as soon as possible. There's a third benefit, too. We get to spend more time shooting portraits and less time selling. Unless you experience a problem with your order. you won't have to contact us again until you're ready for your next photo session.
The greatest thing that we believe sets us apart from many other photographers is that we take the TIME necessary to create beautiful images. Some people can "shine" before a camera in an instant, but most of us require time to get comfortable with a new photographer. Most of us prefer to be BEHIND a camera than BEFORE a photographer's lens. We understand this and we go the extra mile to gain your trust and set you at ease before we start clicking away and blinding you with our flashes and strobes. You see, a portrait is so much more than just a lifeless image on paper. A portrait is a moment frozen in time that will never be again...a moment preserved to share with all. We seek to capture your legacy in the best light possible and, to accomplish that requires a willingness on your part to allow your self to "be vulnerable" before our camera...if only for a few seconds at a time. This doesn't take coaching, it takes trust.
We are NOT Craigslist, Dollar Store, or Thumbtack photographers! We, we actually DID give Thumbtack a shot, only to discover that the site was basically a site for bargain shoppers. While there are a few exceptions out there, in photography as in most arts, you get what you pay for. We recently had a dear, close friend who became engaged to a billionaire. Naturally, as we expected, shortly after she announced her engagement she asked us to photograph her wedding. In the process of making arrangements for her engagement portraits to be shot (approximately 120 miles away, mind you) she informed us that her fiancée wanted to know the price of the session. We forwarded several options for the couple to choose from, each priced at our family discount. Imagine our surprise when our services were declined because her fiancee was able to find a cheaper photographer. There will ALWAYS be cheaper photographers available out there.
$500.00 minimum session fee with typical packages averaging approximately $800.00.
