Let Us Capture Your Special Day


Our Wedding service includes photographing a full wedding with up to 3 locations and most packages include no time limits. Two hours before the ceremony we start with candid and formal pictures of the wedding party. We shoot the entire ceremony and formal shots at the alter or at another desired location. We capture the fun and emotional moments of the reception. We take candid photos trying to capture everything from the very exciting playful shots, to the casual intimate moments. With an unobtrusive style and the latest digital technology, we capture the day as it really happens. We also capture the traditional wedding pictures such as the bouquet and garter throw, cake cutting, and any posed or family pictures at your request. If you decide on a second photographer, they will be shooting a Behind-The-Scenes style that gives an artistic and creative look of your wedding day. Serving the greater area: York, PA, Lancaster, PA, and Baltimore, MD, as well as Destination Weddings

Half down is required to be under contract and to hold the date. The balance is due on or before the Wedding Day. We except all forms of payment (Cash, Check, PayPal, or any Credit Card). We hope we can capture your wedding and give you memories to last a lifetime!

  • Our pictures are INCREDIBLE! We cannot stop looking at them. Each one is perfect and you and your team truly captured every emotion felt that day. My favorite set of pictures are of the ceremony. From the moment Austin and I were ready to start the ceremony to our first kiss as husband and wife, you guys truly caught every detail and emotion. You also took photos of things Austin and I never got to see! And of course... You captured how much FUN we had at the reception! Thank you, thank you,...

  • Hi Philip!
    I just wanted to let you know Reed did an amazing job at our wedding. All of the guests loved him and thought he was fun but still professional. The wedding coordinator at the venue was very impressed and wants to refer your company to all of her brides! They have a vendor list they provide to all of their brides so you should call them and ask to be added to the list. Her name is Kim at the Maryland Inn. She said he was one of the best they have had there! So thank you so much...

    First, I wanted to tell how much we enjoyed looking at the pictures taken by Reed at John & Maddie Lutz's wedding on Aug. 2nd. They are absolutely beautiful! The wedding party enjoyed working with him. I had several people comment on how efficient and thorough he was. Looking forward to Artistic Difference's talents at our next wedding.

    I am interested in ordering a small album of the wedding for myself.

  • I wanted to let you know that we were incredibly happy with both Reed and the videographer. Every time I saw something that I thought should be captured, they were already taking care of it or heading that direction. Jenny also said that she liked how they conducted themselves. She said that most girls don't like to have their pictures taken, but he made them comfortable, and she got compliments about the photographer from a bunch of the girls and much of our family.

  • Got married last month (Sept 6, 2014) at Cameron Estate in Pa. Reed was our photographer and I cannot tell you what a great job he did. He was professional, personable, knowledgeable and totally unobtrusive throughout the whole event. At first we were nervous and a little stiff but Reed put us at ease quickly Pictures were beautiful. There were some shots that we were not even aware were taken. Reed knew what he was doing and clearly enjoyed his job! Please share this with Reed. Because...

    I can’t even tell you how happy we are with everything. The pictures turned out wonderfully, we all remarked how you all have an amazing gift at capturing the intense expressions of the moment, and finding creative angles that make ordinary shots more exciting. I already can’t wait to go home and look at them again. The video is perfect. It really depicts the evening as I remember it- a perfect mix of romantic moments and fun moments.

    I also love the slide...

  • Hello, My name is Gina and I am the mother of the Groom.
    I wanted to drop a line and express my appreciation for the incredible job you did with our son’s wedding photos. Besides the excellent quality of the traditional color pictures, the black and white pictures are stunning. The photographer’s expertise captured the day not to mention her eye for design which gives these pictures the feel of a photo shoot for a bridal magazine. Thank you again, I look forward to hearing from you.
