Info and Contact
So much to tell in such a short space, but true to my personality, I love a good challenge! Well I am a full time teacher, who teaches digital photography to teenagers, a busy family man and of course a small business owner. I love my day job inspiring youth to improve their photographic talents. In the off hours, I am a full time family man with two fantastic kids who keep me on my toes and a lovely, patient wife who puts up with all the time I spend on my small photography business I have on the side.
I constantly have a camera in my hand and enjoy capturing the world around me. Over time my small business has grown and now I shoot regularly outside of my regular teaching job. My teaching career and small business are a perfect fit.
I constantly wear a smile and I am laid back (although not too much). I know how to control a photo session with confidence, but I balance it well with a relaxed atmosphere so my clients feel comfortable in order to get those great images they want for their memories.
I love to laugh, and love to meet new people, and be in new situations. Photography has found a special spot in my life and I hope to bring my years of experience to you and your photo session. It is always an honor when someone lets me into their world and let's me capture them. Let me be a part of yours.
My goal is always to have a client happy with their final images so that they can cherish and share them with others proudly. We only live once and memories are what we make throughout our lives. The investment you make will last your lifetime and be well worth it. Contact me via the form below (my email) and/or give me a call. Provide me with your photography session wish list so to speak (time, date and photographic situation) and I will quickly give you a response that will provide you with a quote on what your needs are, book our session, and provide you with a quality experience with images you will have for your life time.
For those of you that "just have to know", my typical family rate is $300 for an hour session and other time rates are pro-rated. The session includes my experience, my professional quality gear, my shooting time, the selection and editing time, the safe and professional storage of your files, and the best part...ALL the technically strong and unique images that I finalize/edit in an online album for you to download and access from. There is no upsell for me after our session. As I work full time already as a teacher, you will not have me try to upsell you on your final images after the session as well.
Headshot sessions can vary in style and length of time, so this price varies, but a simple profile shot with no change of clothes and one location can be done for $80 and that includes 1-3 images from a typical 10-15 mini minute session. Multiple changes of clothing and moving indoors and outdoors moves up to $150-300 and typically takes 30 minutes to an hour. Clients can expect 10-20 edited images at the end of the session depending on the length of the session. Locations, indoor or outdoor, studio lights or natural light will all play a factor in the price as equipment use is a factor. ALL files I edit will be included in an online album for the client to download from.
Weddings can vary quite dramatically in their planning and needs for a photographer to capture the event. Contact me to get your quote for your special day, but just like above in all my other session types, you will get ALL useable edited images from the day that I capture. Prices can range from $600 to $3000+ depending on your needs for the day. Give me a call at 250-618-7495 or email with your plan of the day and we will see what we can do to keep you budget savy bride and grooms happy with your investment and what you get in return (which of course is my experience, my professional gear, my editing skills, your safe storage of images and ultimately your fantastic imagery!) A non-refundable "booking fee" to hold your date is part your final price and based on the total amount of the wedding photography budget. I look forward to hearing from you to book your wedding!
If you don't see a choice here for what you are looking for in terms of photographic needs, I am happy to answer any questions and provide more accurate pricing for your needs through phone, email, text or even social media (www.facebook.com/craigletourneauphotography).
If you like the images you have seen in my portfolio, then I would be happy to answer any questions related to your photography session as well as discuss my great rates/packages. Without trying to sound cliche (but I guess I am by saying that...heh), let's make some memories together that you will hold on to for your lifetime.
