∼Welcome∼

                              to our website. Here at Fifth World Photography we believe in “start to finish.” Which means we don’t just shoot images for our clients, give them digitals and say, “good luck!” We walk them through the entire process, which starts LONG before we even pick up a camera.⁠

We’re a boutique, which means:

WE’RE DESIGNING.

WE’RE GUIDING.

WE’RE ASKING QUESTIONS.

WE’RE BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN OUR CLIENTS.

Because that’s what makes us different. We’re not just photographers. An iPhone can’t replace us. Wer’re more than the equipment that we shoot with.

WE’RE BRAIN STORMERS.

WE’RE DESIGNERS.

WE’RE ARTISTS.

WE’RE EXPERIENCE CREATORS.

WHAT WE DO IS 

Magic.

Looking for unique and memorable senior pictures? You’ve come to the right place. At Fifth World Photography, we want to make your senior experience one you will remember for years to come. Anything but traditional, our goal is to create one of the most unique photo shoots for your senior year. You know…one that will make your friends jealous.

Don’t settle for fake backdrops or horrible poses right out of the 1980’s. We’ll work with you to create images that are special to you. Our sessions are more like fashion shoots than they are cheesy senior pictures. Think hair, makeup, stylist, wardrobe and one hell of a photographer.

This is your senior year! Let’s create something that will blow people away!

WEDDINGS & ENGAGEMENTS

Happily Ever After Begins Here

Fifth World Photography Engagement Sessions.

Engagement pictures matter. Why? Because this is the perfect time to get comfortable and get to know your wedding photographer. You know, the actual person who will be there on your wedding day and has learned how to do those crazy things that will help you look your best on that most important of days.

Here is why an engagement session should be important to you. It allows you and your photographer to learn how to work together and gives you an opportunity to see what you like and what you don’t like. Also, engagement photos will give you diversity with the artwork in your home. You don’t want every picture to be of you in your dress and tuxedo or shot at the same time of year.

FAMILY SESSIONS

Where Life Begins and Love Never Ends

Your family is your link to the past and your bridge to the future. When you bring your family to Fifth World Photography, we are dedicated to creating portraits that show the emotion, the hope and the love of every season of your life.

Our goal is to freeze these fleeting moments of time into lasting images that you and your family will treasure for generations.

Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.

Let us help you tell your story with images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime. We have over 30 years of photography and digital darkroom experience, combined with a flair for artistry and a desire to be the best. Our goal is to capture the feeling of your special moments so that you can enjoy and relive them forever.

On his 17th birthday, Ted’s parents gave him a Pentax K1000 35mm camera. That’s back in the days when a flash card was called film. He’s seen many changes over the years, from analog to digital, and not only has he adapted to those changes, he has embraced them.

Ted feels it’s very important to keep up on the technology, styles and trends of today’s photography market. As well as completing his degree in Graphic Design Technology and accumulating over 25 years of experience shooting almost every facet of photography, you’ll find that he’s easy to work with – and some say, he’s even fun.

Michelle is a web designer and photographer, and also has a degree in Graphic Design Technology. Currently learning the skill of woodworking, she has been merging design and craftsmanship to create unique home decor and artwork.

Cool new photo ideas Ted thinks of each day.

Times he's thought that he was funny enough to be on The Daily Show.
