Modern Technology Storytelling
ONE VENDOR. ONE STOP. THREE
Special Events & Ads
Capturing moments in time and telling a story through images is what we do. We don't just mark an occasion, it's about making history of an event, or product, or something really special our clients want to share with the public, families, and friends. With a combined experience of 30 plus years in photography, it's game time when we show up on the scene. Let our images speak for themselves- check out the gallery.
Most people aren't familiar with term, "Cinematography". It's all in the root word; Cinema. Basically, we tell your story in a movie produced for big screen theatrics with all the bells and whistles and surround sounds you hear around you. Videography is traditional point and shoot documentation, while cinematography the art of storytelling on film. So sit back, relax, and grab a bag of popcorn.
We personally come to your home and capture the most intimate pictures of your family; from pregnancy, to newborns, to even birthdays- chronicling your family history, to even graduations! Our photographs can even be integrated into motion graphics and music, using Ken Burns effects. We capture it, but you own it. With over 30 years working with children and families, there's sure to be a connection.
A little about
Prices vary for photography. As a general note, however, it can range from as little as $799.00 for a wedding ceremony to $2,900.00 for an entire 12 hour day with two photographers on staff (and a free engagement shoot). We also offer a competitive "Match and Scratch" program. That is, we'll match any competitors price, and then Scratch ours by another 10% to be your vendor of choice.
A professional wedding photographer will naturally run an event cost of $2000.00 - $4000.00. Our price range typically is in the middle of that spectrum, depending on what all you want captured at your event, and we will naturally have two photographers on site.
INTRODUCTION TO TMG, LLC
A Brief Overview
From professional movie trailers, to commercials, to special events; we do everything with zeal and pop. In an effort to make seeing our work less time consuming, please review the quality, artistic composition, color-grading, theatrics, and modern use of technology in our productions.
If you want to see more films, in more detail, I'd be happy to bring more to your consultation. One thing that separates my teams from most films is we are constantly moving, and expanding our technology, and productions to give you the very best in "non-traditional"visual arts.
Prices range from $999.00 - $2900.00 depending on how elaborate a production style you desire, (and what you want filmed). Again, we are cinematographers not just videographers. All that is required is a 10% non-refundable security deposit to lock in the date and balance paid in full 7 days prior to the event taking place.
All DVD's are "Red-Letter" Mastered for DVD (viewer navigation preference) Viewing and laced with captions.
MOTION GRAPHIC SAMPLE
It's amazing the things we can do with the images and graphics we take. Unlike traditional, old school powerpoint slideshows, we make photos come alive in an epic tale as we tell your story through moving images.
No need looking at the typical photo album captured on hard stock paper, any longer. Watch that time capsules come alive with vibrancy, music, and entertainment, so much so that even a child would enjoy watching. Here's a few examples:
A Little About Me
I love the Art of Motion and Stills, and particularly, storytelling. It's more than just documenting an event but moreover, experiencing a moment in time that can be "re-experienced," time after time. What I am unable to capture in stills is recomposed into motion pictures. Albeit, Motion Graphics for still but motion filming for cinema- That's what's so sweet about TMG, we do it all.
My team and I challenge ourselves to push the limit with our productions; hence, we work until we can produce the story. Unlike many packages, where you pay by the hour consequently, nickled and dimed, we stay until we get what we need.
My experience started in the music recording business, expanded into a university B. A., in Mass Communications (Radio and Television Broadcasting), and an M. A., in Family Life, Ed. When you wrap Families together with Media and Creativity, you end up with a person like me, one who lives to "tell the tale". Let me tell your story, event, or product in a way that will be remembered.
I am an Apple, Black Magic, and Canon man. That just means for those people who want to know what gear I use that my go to's include all Apple pre-post professional production software and hardware products (MacBook Pros, Mac Pros). I swear by the Mark III's and Black Magic Cams in capturing time. Alas, a finished work!

common questions about our service

That way there's no risk your date will be taken. All that is required to book is a 10% security deposit (non-refundable).
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?
Besides filming and photography (which also now includes family, baby, boudoir and graduation portraits), we do motion graphics advertisements, business commercials, motion graphics web ads, and save the date designs.
DO YOU CHARGE HOURLY RATES?
This is a dicey area but the short answer is no. We do not charge by the hour but by the package. In other words, we don't leave until we have the package you paid for. We understand that things happen that are out of your control and the last thing we want is our clients watching the clock; it's just not good business.
HOW DO I GET DISCOUNTS?
Because we understand weddings can be really expensive, we offer monthly OR quarterly discounts all the time. This year we offered 2 "low ball" deals for people on a really tight budget that almost put us out of business!!
