Styled Wedding Session

Towards the beginning of the year, I had an idea to do a photo shoot that was completely for myself. I photograph other people nearly every day (which I love!), so I felt inspired to do a shoot that was for me: my ideas, my taste, my preferences. The idea of shooting to please no other person seemed wonderful. The shoot ended up transforming beyond what I originally planned into a styled wedding session complete with a bride, groom, and bridesmaid. A lot (I mean a LOT) of things went wrong along the way. There was stress and hot glue gun burns and sickness (I had no voice the day we were shooting!). There was laughing and dress shopping and dinners to discuss details.  I found the most wonderful location about 2 days before, got permission from the owner, and everything was set! I got to work with some amazing people and I’m so proud of what we created. Without further ado, please enjoy this romantic styled wedding session…among the Bradford Pears.

New Session Menu! {Exciting Stuff}

I have had the same session structure for years and years, and have lately been feeling that a different set-up would serve people better. So I re-worked the Session Menu and I’m very excited to offer 5 new types of sessions that I think will work better for everyone!

Click here to be taken directly to the new Session Menu on my website. And stick around to browse the updated site awhile if you haven’t checked it out already. I still fall in love with the new look every time I look at it! And I hope you do too. 🙂

The new Session Menu will apply to any sessions booked from here on out.

**As of today, we are booked up through the end of July. Please contact me ASAP to schedule any sessions, but especially FALL sessions, as those dates are starting to fill up super fast. October is nearly full also!**

And because every post is better with a photo, here are a couple from a make-up Mommy & Me Mini last week.

Fall 2014 Digital Images Sale!

EIGHT. This October marks 8 years of Gina Dreher Photography. I can’t believe it! Thinking back about the people I’ve met, countless relationships I’ve formed, and thousands upon thousands of photos I’ve taken…I can’t help but be grateful to all of you wonderful people for letting me capture memories for you. Not to mention the added perk that you all help put food on my table! 🙂 Thank you, thank you. On that note, let’s have a sale!

I generally do a Fall Sale on digital images annually; if you’ve been waiting for that, wait no more!. Digital images are high resolution, edited files from your portrait session that you may post online or make prints from. The details:

*Full session negatives may be purchased for $175 (regularly $275).

*The remaining images from Mini sessions may be purchased for $75 (regularly $125).

*There is no sale price for purchasing individual negatives, these prices apply to your session as a whole.

*This sale may be taken advantage of for future sessions in 2014.

*New this year: you have the option of receiving your images online via Dropbox instead of on a disc…which saves you a trip to pick up the disc! If you don’t know about Dropbox, just ask! It’s easy peasy.

Tax will be charged on each item. Past or future session negatives must be paid for by October 31st, 2014. After that, the sale price will no longer be valid. To place your order, or if you have questions, shoot me an email: gina {at} ginadreherphotography {dot} com

Spring Sessions Are Nearly Full!

Are you thinking of having your family photos taken this spring? I know we’re not inclined to think that far ahead during these cool winter months. BUT I wanted to let you know that due to my upcoming maternity leave and limited schedule when I come back to work, spring photo sessions are nearly full!

April is full and May is nearly full…there are just a few May sessions left towards the end of the month.

As a reminder, I will only be taking a handful of sessions per month after our new son arrives in order to maximize time with my family. But I still really really want to take your photos! So please schedule your session ASAP to insure you get a spot, and please be flexible with me since my schedule tends to be a bit crazy.

And a big thanks to you all for letting me into your lives time and time again. I love capturing your memories and hope I can continue to for years and years to come!

Rachael {Bridals}

Rachael got married on Saturday, so I’m finally able to post her bridals! I’ve been waiting and waiting because I love how these turned out. We chose the hottest day of the year back in the middle of July…I believe my car gauge read 107 degrees just before we started…but you wouldn’t be able to tell from looking at her. Rachael’s mom Becky came along and was so helpful with making sure all the little details on Rachael’s dress were perfect for each shot. Thanks Becky! I’ll let the photos speak for themselves…and I can’t wait to be able to show you more from Rachael and Westin’s big day!

After Rachael changed out of her dress, Westin met up with us for a few more engagement photos.
