My name is Philip Schmitten, owner of Affordable Photography & Wedding Services. My wife, Evelyn, is my partner, now on 20 years. She serves as my Second Shooter. We arrive, usually, a half-hour early before the Ceremony and split up. Evelyn goes with the Bride as she prepares for her Special Day, while I hang out with the guys photographing their journey.

We meet at the Ceremony and record it from both sides for outstanding coverage. Then we usually take a few minutes after the Ceremony and right before the Reception to get some family/friends together with the Bride & Groom. We request that someone be "in charge" of gathering the folks up who you want in the photos.

We then cover all the activities as normal, plus ANYTHING you want....YOU GET. We offer unlimited photography for the 4 hours.

Sometime during the Reception, when it is quieted down some, we try and sneak the Bride & Groom away for some more serious portraits.

Within 6 hours the proofs will be on our website for you to see and share with your family and friends. In three business days you will receive, Priority Mail, your Flash Drive with all edited photos at full resolution to use how ever you like.

If you order prints or albums, then the delivery time is 5 days.

We require a $100 deposit upon contract signing. With the remaining balance due at or before the Ceremony.

We take cash, checks, Credit & Debit Cards and offer payment plans, as well. We know how much it costs to do a Wedding, so we try to make it easy as possible. Hire us and your Photographer Worries are OVER.

Experience???? To start off with, I am a retired USAF Combat Photojournalist after 21 years service. Then I opened my own Wedding Photography business and met Evelyn and it was magic. I hold two Associate Degrees, one in Photography and the other in Graphic Arts. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and a Masters from Syracuse S.I. Newhouse School of Communication.

Evelyn is a much-published, Award-winning Fine Art Photographer with an awesome eye for detail. We combine Photojournalism & Fine Art Styles to produce a story with beautiful pictures for your years to come.
