About Me

Hello, I'm Craig Agapie and I'm a portrait and wedding photographer based out of the great midwestern city of Fort Wayne, Indiana.  

I'm a father of three awesome boys and husband of a fantastic wife; you'll see some of them scattered throughout the site. ;)

Speaking of that, if you haven't already, please don't forget to check out my portfolio. Also, you can connect with me via facebook with any questions, comments, or likes. ;)

Thanks for visiting my site and I look forward to hearing from you!

Style

I'm an unapologetic people photographer. Not so much a nature, animals, landscapes, etc. photographer. Those can be absolutely beautiful, but they just don't do anything for me photographically. I love the power of the face and capturing nuanced expression. To me, it's all about the connection between the photographer and the subject. Nice light, "expensive" camera, bad connection. . . no dice. Easiest way to ruin a good picture. I take care of all the technical stuff and then we just shoot. It's fun!

Because I'm a portrait guy, I photograph kids (love 'em), babies, weddings, events, and my very favorite... headshots! Everyone needs a solid, magical headshot at different points in their life and I am absolutely your man. Again, the power of the face. . . nothing like it!

I prefer black and white or vivid color and work in a photojournalistic style trying to capture real, candid expression as it happens. I like clean backgrounds!

Pricing

All sessions require a session fee and signed contract to book.  Soon after the shoot, the best images will be uploaded to a private gallery for viewing/print ordering for 7 days after they go up (this deadline gets them to your door sooner!).  Print prices are competitive and packages are available for significant savings.


Session Fees

FAMILY (local, up to 1.5 hrs shooting time) - $100 plus your choice of package.  

     Package A: $500 ($500 print credit, FREE full resolution gallery download)

     Package B: $400 ($250 print credit, $150 full resolution gallery download)

     Package C: $250 (no print credit, $250 full resolution gallery download)

*For sessions with multiple family groups present and each wanting their own family portrait, add $150 per group photographed. You save money because you only pay the download fee once! (Minimum total for 1 family is $350 while 2 family minimum is $250 each and 3 family is $215 each and so on).  Great deal!

I chose this pricing structure because I really want you to get something for your money.   Don't let your beautiful photos sit on a CD/hard drive/email hidden away somewhere. Enjoy them. Gift them. Order a large canvas wall display for your living room, some smaller canvases or prints in kid's rooms.  How about an 8x10 of your spouse on your desk at work?  A large print as a gift for grandma?   (Hint, CDs don't make grandmas cry with joy).  Show her your love by giving heirloom quality pieces instead of something nearly obsolete. She'll thank you for it!  

Don't let your memories slip away to either time or mediocrity, let me create timeless art for you that your family will love for generations. Click CONTACT ME in the menu bar above to start the conversation.

"Barry & I received your CD on Saturday & immediately looked at the photos on Barry's big screen computer. Your photos are stunningly beautiful! Now you need to know, I am the daughter of a photographer/engineer, grew up in a darkroom (lol) & I had some courses in college a million years ago. I know what it's all about. A good photographer has to have an artist's eye. You do! You captured everything I wanted. We could not be more pleased! Congratulations on a job so very well done! If you ever need a reference, you know where to go : ) You allowed me to enjoy the day and not worry about pictures! Thank you so very very very much." - Carole, Mother of the Bride
