Today's engaged couples are sophisticated consumers who want more than just digital images and lackluster wedding photography services. One of the big trends over the past several years, was the rise in digital only photographers who will shoot your wedding and give you digital images on a flash drive. That is all you get. Is this all you want from your wedding? If you said no, then you are not alone.
Unlike many wedding photographers today who only offer digital products, Four 2 North wedding services are much more valuable than just digital products because we offer you luxury wedding albums, fine art prints and other art products, engagement session, consultations, photography timelines and expert editing of your digital images. We offer these services to you because your wedding day vision is important and we want you to have heirloom pieces of art to showcase the love you have for each other to pass down to the next generation.
What makes Four 2 North different from other wedding photographers?
Four 2 North Photography specializes in weddings and engagements. We have photographed weddings in different states and abroad. Our signature style of cinematic fine art, artistic photojournalist and classic style wedding photography is different than most other wedding photographers in the mid-west.
Four 2 North receives numerous training each year with some of the best wedding photographers in the world, so that we stay on top of our game and excel where others may be complacent.
With each wedding comes many different lighting situations. We are prepared to shoot in any lighting situation during any wedding so your images will look amazing.
We provide a photography timeline of your wedding day and are used to shooting in high pressure situations with minimal time if the day requires.
We believe you deserve more than just having us photograph your wedding and then giving you your digital images on a cheap flash drive. Four 2 North studio provides you with a full service, custom wedding experience. Offering our clients both digital images and museum quality products.
All of our collections include an album. We are visual story tellers and shoot with your album in mind. Our albums are handcrafted by artisans and use the finest material which are sourced from around the world. These albums come with a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY. If you want to learn more about our handcrafted albums visit our ALBUM PAGE.
After your wedding is complete, we will have your images edited and ready for viewing 2 weeks from your wedding date. After shooting a wedding most photographers will edit their own images which can take as long as six weeks or more. We use professional editors to edit your images. This is what they specialize in, just like we specialize in weddings and engagements.
We offer signature edits of at least one of your wedding images (see signature edited image below). We shoot creatively specifically for this edit. Using composition, posing and lighting techniques we are able to capture an image that has a fine art cinematic look. The Signature Edits can take as much as several hours of time to complete. They are meant to be displayed as large artwork in your home.
**Wedding dates are limited. Please inquire below as early as you can after you get a date set for your wedding**

Why we do not include full pricing on our website?
Four 2 North understands that finding the right photographer is more than just, are you available for my wedding and what does your services cost? Your wedding is your special day with unique details that deserve care throughout the process from the very beginning of the planning to you receiving your beautiful album wrapped with care in a velvet ribbon. Please remember, after your wedding day has ended, all you will have is your wedding images that your photographer(s) have taken along with the art products and your album that has been created.
While looking at all of the choices you can definitely feel overwhelmed. You are looking at style, 1 or 2 photographers, hours of coverage, is there an album included, how many digital images are included, and so many more details. Because there is so much detail to our collections, we have chosen to list our starting collection cost and then invite you to schedule an appointment.
Four 2 North believes that having a personal connection with each of our couples is something that can only be done in person or at least over the phone. This connection is important because your photographer(s) will be spending 8 or more hours around you, your friends, family, and guests. The other reason is when you look at your images, you want to feel confident that your vision of your wedding day was documented. The only way that this will be able to happen is through communication and organization.
When we meet at our studio in Osage Beach, we will want to learn about the details that you have planned, the ones that you are working, and any struggles that you have experienced so far. We will share with you the steps that we take to handle your wedding day with care, the systems we have in place to make life easier and the process more manageable, and finally to show you samples of our museum quality albums. This is the why of not include all of the details and full pricing on our website.

This will guide us through the day to stay on track and capture those can't miss memories. Next is capturing your amazing wedding day!
Albums: Your wedding deserves to be told as a story in one of our beautiful handcrafted albums. We have searched the globe for the best albums for you. One that will be your legacy centerpiece for all time. Once you choose the images you would like for your album, we will personally check them to make sure the color and exposure is correct for print. We will then custom design your album.
Consultation: Your consultations with us can either be in person at our studio, by Skype or phone. During your consultation we learn what is important to you. We will have you explain to us in detail your wedding day vision. After our initial consultation we will craft a photographic timeline to send to you for review. The consultation is important so we know what is important to you. It also helps us in the creation of the album.
Wedding Coverage by 2 Photographers: All of our weddings are covered by two photographers. With 2 photographers you will have a more complete story. Having different angles and views of the same scene is amazing in your wedding album. For example, while Gary is photographing the bride coming down the isle, Tracy is photographing the grooms reaction. To get both of these shots is a must for your wedding album. One photographer can not get that brief moment in time he see's you coming down the isle at the same time you see him for the very first time.
On Line Gallery: The online gallery of your images will be able to be shared with your family and friends so that they can order prints in a secure environment. This saves you time from having to order their pictures for them.
Engagements: We customize this session to your style. We will help you pick the perfect location, whether that is in and around the Lake of the Ozarks area, mid Missouri or other destinations. We will also give you tips so that you look amazing! Sessions are 2 hours with multiple locations and outfits. We shoot creatively with at least one artistic signature edit. Once your engagement session is complete you will be invited back to the studio at 2 weeks to view your images. Check out our Engagement Portfolio here.
