Since 2007 we have photographed over 1500 events and 1000’s of portrait sessions. So many of our couples and families have amazing things to say about Barnyard Photography for one simple reason…
We have streamlined the often complicated process of selecting exactly the photography and level of service you desire from start to finish with unmatched reliability.
From consultation and booking, to the big event and receiving your final product, we are here to help you throughout every step of the way. We feel that an open line of communication and understanding is the best way to provide you with a great experience on such an important day.

While this step is optional (you can book online anytime you wish), we would love to speak with you in order to learn more about your wedding and help you decide which services and options best fit your needs.
We offer consultations over the phone and in person. If you would like to plan a call or a meeting you can fill out our contact form, email us at [email protected], or call us any time. If you would like to come to our studio to talk in person, we would love to meet with you.
Reserve your package online by using our Online Contract tool.
During this process you will be able to give us all the available details about your event. The who, what, when, and where.
From this information we will put together an initial schedule for your event and reach out to you to say hello!
We assign photographers about 12 to 16 weeks before your wedding. About 2 to 4 weeks prior to your event date, we will give you a call to confirm your timeline and locations, and address any needs or questions you may have at this time. If you would like to speak with your photographer at this time, just let us know.
At the beginning of the week, your photographer will reach out to finalize any changes that have been made to your locations or schedule.
Of course, you may contact the studio at anytime for any additional help or information you need to make things go smoothly on your big day.
You’ll receive your completed photos/video between four and seven weeks after your wedding. We’ll send you an email when everything is ready.
If you would like to order albums, we are happy to schedule a design meeting as soon as you are ready.
Our company is divided between Nikon and Canon equipment. It’s really a matter of preference between our photographers. Each of our team carries two or three of “everything that matters” so that you are protected from equipment failures and breakage.
We do not offer raw images or raw video. As we are ultimately judged by the product that we produce, we insist on having quality control over the finished product.
We include the first 90 minutes of one-way travel at no cost to you. Longer distances may be subject to a travel cost, all depending on your location. Our online booking can calculate a custom quote for you, should you be outside our no-cost range. Travel before and after the event is not counted against your package time. Travel between locations during the event does count against your package time.
We typically wear all black. Our usual dress is black pants, black shirt, and black sneakers. In the summer, we tend to wear polo shirts. In the winter, we tend to wear oxford shirts. As our coverage is very journalistic, and often very active, we do not wear suits & ties while shooting. Female staff may opt to wear dresses.
We’ve found that selective color photos are vey popular with our brides. If you like them, remember that “color” is the most important part of “selective color”. You will likely be wearing a white dress, so be sure to have a vibrant bouquet. White flowers don’t make interesting selective color images, so go bold.
We complete all of our editing and post-production in about 4-7 weeks. Rush processing is available as an option on your contract.
It’s hard to give a generalization, as every wedding is different. Typically, you will receive about 60-75 photos per “useful hour” of photography. Remember, time spent driving between locations doesn’t allow us to make images. Secondarily, the amount of “action” in your wedding can dramatically affect the number of photos. We have shot three hour weddings that resulted in 500 pictures, and we have shot seven hour weddings that resulted in only about 250 pictures. It all depends on the specifics of your event. Don’t worry about count. It’s the actual events of the day that matter. You will receive the best photos taken, as selected by our staff. As we are judged by the quality of our work, we retain creative control of all photos delivered. Photos that we elect to not include in the delivery set are not availble for review.
We would love to hear from you! Please tell us as much about your event as possible. We answer most messages within a few hours. If you are ready to reserve your date, feel free to BOOK ONLINE at any time.
