Bigger IS Better~ New for 2011

Alot of people ask me why you would buy more than just an 8x10 print. Isn't that big enough? Well to answer your question, its NO. One 8x10 will not fill up your wall. What do you think?

Not alot of picture huh? Well the good news is  I have decided to add NEW for 2011- Stand Out Clusters- You will not just get ONE photo to hang on your wall, but AT LEAST THREE Standouts for one price!
How about FOUR 8x8s?
Or even NINE 8x8s?

Looks alot better than that one 8x10 huh? You can also get clusters in the following:

FOUR 10x10s~
Four 10x10s & One 20x20
One 10x30, Two 10x10, One 8x10~

Two 8x10s, Two 11x14s & One 20x24~ (a top pick)
Four 8x10s & One 16x24~
Two 10x20s & One 16x20~

Each Standout are on 3/4" Black Standout Boards with holes ready to hang! NO frames needed!

I hope this has helped you decide on what sizes you would want with your sessions as well as cluster designs.  For price information, please contact me at jackie@jackieransonphotography.com or jackieransonphotography@gmail.com .

Julie & Danny- Engaged {Middlesex Engagement Photographer}

Saturday, in the bitty sweet cold, I met the cutest couple ever! Julie and Danny are getting married at Beth Page in Urbanna in June. We did some engagement photos at Beth Page this past weekend. The weather was beautiful as long as the wind stayed away. We even got a glimpse or two of snow :) Thank you for allowing me to photograph the love between you two and I can not wait for your wedding and for Julie's Bridal portraits! For now here is your lovely sneak peak :) Enjoy!

New for 2011

Hello and Welcome to the new blog of Jackie Ranson Photography! A Big thank you to Kimmie from Blue Paper Lanterns for working so hard on it for me.

I have a few new items for the new year that I am really excited to be able to offer to my wonderful clients!
The biggest thing that I have added to almost all wedding packages this year are the Layflat Coffee Table books! These are also available with any session and come in 4 different sizes!

The next new thing for 2011 are Custom Made Image Boxes for 4x6, 5x7s and wallets! These are available with ANY session and make great gifts!

I am also offering bounded proof books~ these come in 4x6s or 5x7s! They are great brag books for grandparents or that special someone. And are included in most Senior Portrait Packages!

Also included in most Senior Portrait Packages are what I like to call Rep Cards~ (these can also be purchased with any session) They come in packs of 25 with a beautiful metal tin!

I'm really excited about this new year and I hope you are as well! I look forward in what this year has to bring! 

(images are not mine as they are just examples of what I have to offer)

Jessica + Tim {Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer}

Remember this couple~ They tied the knot right before Christmas! What an amazing Christmas present! To be husband and wife and share their first Christmas in Aruba! Jessica and Tim got married at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Purcellville, Virginia. It was a beautiful wedding! Thank you guys for allowing me to share your wonderful day (and for being so patient with me that day- of all days to get sick!)! Congrats!!

Now without farther ado- as this is a well waited for sneak peak- I hope you enjoy!

Right before they were pronounced husband and wife, Tim had a small surprise for Jessica~ he wrote her a song and played and sang to her~ Now being a music major and married to a music major, this really got to me :) how sweet he is!
I couldn't help but to post these two of the youngest flower girl- she reminded me so much of my oldest daughter :) how cute is she?!
I love how Jessica is singing to Tim during their first dance..
