  • We Love Weddings!

    Our philosophy is "It is the bride's day". We are there for you and your groom. We believe you should get all of the photographs taken on this special day. You do with us. You get all the photographs in high-resolution files along with a print authorization that allows you to print the photographs anywhere you want.

    You can use them in social media, print them, email them or make an album. Since you can do anything you want with them you can make an album yourself, hire a graphic artist to make one for you, or hire us to make one for you.

    The important thing is capturing the moments and memories of that special day and being able to use these images as you want.

    Plus you get two wall prints as part of the package. See the price page for full details.

Walnut Ridge Wedding

It was a lovely spring wedding for Jonna and Kyle in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. We were pleased to have the opportunity to photograph this important day.  Here is a photograph taken before the reception.  All the formal photographs were taken before the wedding which allowed us to take the couple outside for some fun wedding day photography then on immediately to their reception. You can see more images from this wedding on my Tim Rand Photography Facebook page.

We’d like to talk to you about your wedding.  Call us at 870-236-2275.

Tax Day

wedding cakeTax day is here.  Now that you hopefully have your taxes filed (or will today) you can get down to planning your wedding.  Choosing a photographer is one of those tasks.  We invite you to look at the galleries on this website and to look at our other posts as we explain our philosophy of wedding photography.  We live in Paragould but will travel anywhere.  Jonesboro is where most of our weddings take place but we have photographed weddings in several towns and in five states.

We love being part of the special day that is a wedding day.  Call us at 870-236-2275 and let’s talk about your wedding.

 

Spring Break Wedding Planning

I have found that Spring Break is a big wedding planning time.  We love weddings.  Thanks for coming to our site.  Please browse some of the posts and check out some of our photographs in the portfolio section.  Did I mention we love weddings :)?  If you’d like to visit about us photographing your wedding just call us at 870-236-2275.  We are based in Northeast Arkansas but travel wherever the wedding is held.  Most of our weddings are in the Jonesboro and Paragould areas and towns within a 100-mile radius.  However, we have photographed weddings in Little Rock, Houston, Fort Worth, and in Florida.  Memphis is another town where we have photographed weddings but that is within the 100-mile radius of us.

Bucket List Update

We have weddings booked in Arkansas and Missouri this year.  However, one beautiful place I’d love to photograph a wedding is Subiaco Abbey Church in Subiaco, Arkansas. I have only seen this facility from the outside but I have read about it and heard about it.  It is one place I’d like to be a wedding photographer.

Of course, I love photographing weddings anywhere and most of those locations are in Northeast Arkansas and Southeast Missouri.  Jonesboro is the most frequent town but there are many others.  If you are looking for a wedding photographer consider us.  And if your wedding is going to be at Subiaco Abbey Church I will waive my travel fee.  To be clear, I will not charge any mileage fee as I think this will be a wonderful day to remember.

Remember, there is never a travel charge in Greene County or Craighead County Arkansas.carving station

 

Bridal Portraits

We always photograph the bride by herself on the wedding day.  However, many brides want to do a bridal session anywhere from two weeks to six months before the wedding.  This makes it possible to have a beautiful portrait of the bride on display at the wedding reception.  This portrait will become a permanent piece of art in the home of the bride or her parents.

We love bridal sessions.  It also gives the bride a chance to stand in her dress for a good amount of time and see if there are any final alterations that need to be done to the dress.

Location – you pick it.  We have done them in churches, in living rooms, in back yards, in parks, and in places that are special to the bride.  Here are some examples from a Little Rock bride.  We photographed at the state Capitol and then moved to North Little Rock where we could get the Little Rock skyline in the background as the sun set.

My thanks to Amanda for the wonderful bridal portrait session.

And one final image on this post is a bridal portrait we took at Crowley’s Ridge State Park with another bride.  Bridal portraits can be printed on regular photographic paper; on metallic photographic paper; or on canvas in a fine art gallery wrap.  We also have a digital package available where you can buy all of the photographs from the bridal session in high-resolution.  Remember, if we photograph your wedding you get all of the images from the wedding day in high-resolution files that you can use anyway you want.  Plus with our wedding photography you also get two large wall prints on photographic paper.
