CANDID WEDDINGS:

I'm so excited about this one! I love shooting weddings, but sometimes there's that added pressure when you know YOU'RE the only person taking photos of these precious moments! So, how about hiring a photographer to go behind the scenes and get those fun shots that the professional photographer might miss!

Let the pro get all the group shots and photos for your wedding album, and let me get the pictures of the activity behind the scenes! (My favorite photos of my wedding are the ones that weren't posed!)

All images will be burnt to a disc for you to keep forever! And because you have the rights to these images you can take your disc to any photo retailer and print your own prints, enlargements and reprints.

As a special gift, you will receive a framed 8x10 of my favorite shot.

TOTAL COST: $350 pre wedding/wedding

$500 pre wedding/wedding/reception

**Plus mileage outside Decatur/Mt. Zion area.

Payment due the day of your wedding.


SPECIAL EVENTS:
~This includes birthday parties, anniversary parties, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners....you name it! If it's a special event, I'm there! Sometimes during these events, (especially when we're hosting), we don't get the shots we want. Most of these shots are the ones we miss when we're busy checking on the food or making sure our guests are having a good time.
~Most images will be candid snapshots, but I will also make sure to do a few posed photo ops with the guest(s) of honor.
TOTAL COST: 2 hours, $100*
*Plus mileage outside the Decatur/Mt. Zion area.
Payment due at the time of your event.
SENIORS:
~Session of at LEAST an hour.......typically more because senior pictures are quite the investment!
~All images are burnt to a c.d. for you to own. (I will also retain a copy of the disc for my portfolio and websites.)
~You will receive an album with 12 to 24 of the best shots so you can show them off to your friends!
~Because you own the rights to your images, you can take the disc to any photo retailer and print your own enlargements, wallets and reprints.
TOTAL PRICE: $200, (two outfits)**
**add $50 per outfit change
***Plus mileage outside the Decatur/Mt. Zion area.
Payment due at the time of your session.
There's no other day as magical as your wedding day! That's why it's my goal to capture those precious moments on this momentous occassion. My photographic style is very layed back, yet I strive to please my brides & grooms with a traditional flair. Your wedding is important to you! So, let me create a collection of images that reflect your personal style! See me on Facebook at 'Natural Light on Location Photography, by Tia Wind'.

For as long as I can remember I've had a camera in my hand. There are very few pictures of me on any of our family vacations, because I was the one taking pictures! I thought about majoring in photography in college.........but I didn't:(




For quite some time now I've been thinking about whether or not I've achieved any of my goals and dreams that I set for myself when I was younger. I've accomplished a few.......I'm married to a wonderful man who I've loved since I was a child:) I have 3 amazing children. I live in a wonderful home. I get to stay home and I don't 'have' to work. But I've been re-assessing the creative side of my goals and dreams.




Since I've picked up my camera the past few times, I've felt the 'stirring' of that dream again......I want to push myself to do more. To take beautiful pictures.....to freeze time. I want to accomplish a measure of success that you can't put a price on. Success in touching people's lives. Helping them with my gift.......




And so my journey begins! I hope to be able to convert a hobby/talent/precious gift into something that can help me support my family and, at the same time, give others the chance to create memories and save them for posterity. I can't wait to see where this leads me!

Tia Wind Photography

Welcome to my blog! I'm so glad you stopped by! I try to blog daily, but I'm sure I'll fall off the wagon eventually:) So, here's a little about me.....









I'm a wife, mother, sister and friend. I take my camera EVERYWHERE I go. Creating images that make my customers happy is my one and only goal! I love, love, LOVE getting behind the camera and do so every chance I get! I'm located in the Benton/Bryant/Central Arkansas area.









I'm an on location natural light photographer, which means I come to you and I use whatever light is available. I don't lug around heavy lights and equipment. And the best part about that is the fact that I don't have any overhead! Which means I can offer YOU great pictures at amazing prices!

























Enjoy cruising through my blog:) Call me for details on my sessions and investment. I look forward to building my list of new friends and clients!

Enjoy!!!
