PPA Certified Seal

  When you see a photographer displaying the Certified seal you can be assured that he or she is among the less than 3% of all imaging professionals who have successfully completed and maintained the requirements.

It goes without saying -this is not your parents' wedding. Unless the idea of setting up smile less, formal black and white family portraits for the retro chic factor, you're probably looking for natural yet beautifully composed photos and videos that together capture the real essence of you and your wedding. It's essential for photo & video to work as a combo to get the best shots (no competing ego's or flashes or being in each other's shots). We aim to have images that work together in a series to create movement in your album and provide the videographer great footage. So, while this IS an investment, it's worth it when you consider the magnitude of your date and what it means for the REST of your lives. Composure Photography & Video is uniquely qualified to offer the etiquette and demeanor necessary to compliment the upper level experience and knowledge you would expect from a top shelf media production company.

If it’s a wedding, you’d want to show more than the father of the bride standing to give the traditional toast, you’d want cut away shots of who he’s talking about. You'd want not only how a bride looked in her dress but how she moved in it, danced in it and was given away in it.

All our ceremony packages are filmed using 2-3 camera's. We edit using the best software available and have an incredible 21 day delivery time for finished DVD's.
