        Let’s get out of the cinderblock conference room and make it something to remember, if not for you, for your kids.

        As a USMC spouse, the tradition and formality of military ceremonies never ceases to rise up a deep sense of patriotism and pride.

        For many of us, our kids won’t even have cognitive memory of their parents’ active duty days. They’ll only have the photos we take.

        I’m on a mission to get you out of the cinderblock conference room to create beautiful, inspiring images of your career. Even if your spouse doesn’t want it!

        Separate from my family and branding work, military ceremonies have a different pricing structure based on location and duration.

        Pricing & Availability

        Every ceremony is different – locations, lengths of time, etc that affect costs. Pinnings are typically the least expensive because they’re so short. Retirements are the most expensive because they’re usually so long.

        Every ceremony includes a few digital downloads with the option to upgrade after you’ve seen them.

        Expect to invest $150-$500. Shoot me an email, or fill out the contact form below, to get an exact quote on your unique event.

        Travel

        I am currently located in Virginia Beach, VA but I do travel to Quantico, Washington DC and Camp Lejeune frequently. I’m open to anything! Travel fees are applicable.
