(A $250.00 deposit is required to reserve us to for your wedding date and it is advisable for the photographer to attend the wedding rehearsal if possible.  You need to discuss with your pastor or priest having a professional photographer at your wedding and fact find if there are any limitations.  i.e.:  Some pastors will as an example not allow pictures to be taken during the taking of your vows!)
Unlike other wedding photography studios we do provide you with electronic copies of your wedding pictures.  You are not tied to Griffin Photography to have reprints or enlargements made, you can have them processed anywhere.  However, you will find our prices are very reasonable and we custom crop and color balance every enlargement, as well as do some retouching work as well.

- Griffin Photography also does business opening and business profile pictures that you may need for advertisement purposes or for website publication.

- Griffin Photography provides a photo restoration service and we use the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop and Light room software.  Restoration pricing is based upon our hourly rate and you pay for the actual time taken for the restoration.

Lightning strike Lake Superior - May 2014 

If you wish to arrange for passports, FAC, employee ID, medical exception photos; please call 1-2 days in advance to arrange a convenient date and time.  A typical passport picture must be taken against a white background, no shadows behind the head or across the face, with a pleasing natural look.  Smiling will result in the rejection of a passport picture, but you can have a natural pleasing shot.

One thing I enjoy is outdoors on-site family photo shoots where you have all the props in the world to work with, "mother nature".  A family picture such as below is typical of the kind of outside family pictures I love to take. 


Taken 3 km's east of Marathon by old ski hill - Sept. 2014 

For most on-site photo shoots please contact me a few days in advance to check on my availability.

If you are interested in pre-booking for your upcoming wedding you do need to plan this in advance and arrange for a wedding photographer several weeks in advance.  In peak spring-summer-fall months, you should be shopping for a wedding photographer several months prior to your wedding date.
