Welcome to our site!
Welcome to our web site. My name is Bill Dempsey and I’m a photographer. That’s my passion. I enjoy most types of photography – Weddings, portraits and landscape – but I have to say: I love wedding photography. There hasn’t been a single wedding that we’ve had a bad experience at. We love every bride and groom that we’ve had the pleasure of photographing. We’re a newer company. Though I’ve been photographing for well over 12 years now – we didn’t go professional until October of 2008. Don’t let that scare you. Look at our portfolio. We’re confident it speaks for itself. We are a husband and wife team. Both Melanie (my wife) and I are passionate about photography. You get two for the price of one at your event!
How I do things…
I’m not the type of photographer that’s going to show up at your wedding or event five minutes before it starts, pose you while shouting “Cheese!”, snap some pictures and then leave. I want to spend some time with you – learn who you are, what you want to be – and then capture those aspirations and emotions in photos. That’s how we roll – and it has lead to our success.
We also consider ourselves cutting edge. Don’t take me wrong – there’s room for traditional – but we are so much more than that. An example you ask? Our wedding albums. We do all of our wedding album designs in-house. This gives you complete control over the look and feel of YOUR album. You’re not going to get a simple flip book with some of your pictures in it. You’re going to get a customized album. No two alike!
We don’t currently have a studio – so all of our work is done on-site. Not having a studio lowers our overhead – and we can share those price savings with you. YOU’RE WELCOME!
My primary style is photojournalistic. Yeah, sure, I can do the “formals” and I do them well, but I like to keep it relaxed and casual…. I want to capture honest expressions. I’m flexible and will bend to meet your style. Like a picture or pose you see on the internet? Let us know. Although we are artists – we aren’t too proud to borrow ideas.
I’m not going to bring you into a gear war (Canon vs Nikon) – as I’m a true believer that it’s the artist, not the pencil. With that being said – I only use higher-end Canon camera equipment. I currently shoot with Canon 5d MK II and a Canon 5d camera bodies…. I bring multiple DSRL cameras and a traditional film camera to your event – just in case. We aren’t about to let a malfunction on our end ruin your memories. We also bring several lenses , included but not limited to:
- EF 50mm 1.2 L
- EF 24-70 2.8 L
- EF 70-200 2.8 L
- EF 85 1.8
- EF 28-135 IS
I also have a wide variety of strobe’s, flashes, and reflectors to use at your event. If your curious about any of our equipment – please ask. We love to educate!
So who am I really?
I'm Bill. I love to trout fish. I'd love to learn to fly fish, but I don't think i have that kind of skill. I love the outdoors, camping and hiking. I've got the most awesome daughter in the world - Gabrielle. She's almost a year old now. Chocolate is my arch nemesis. There isn't anything I wouldn't do for chocolate. I've lived in Denver and West Virginia, I love both places dearly. I like to read, but don't do it nearly enough. I was a die hard Sopranos Fan.... Now I'm into Trueblood.
When technology is involved – it can and will happen. Rest assured: We’re prepared. During the event we shoot on multiple memory cards – but that’s only half the story. After the shoot, all images are promptly copied to a Raid 5 NAS (Network Area Storage) and then burned to DVD for off-site storage. We keep your images archived for 2 years.
