Deserteyes Photography offers a variety of engagement/wedding packages to capture the love shared between two people and the integration of two families that will last a lifetime.

No two weddings will ever be the same. Some couples choose to throw caution to the wind and elope, while others may choose the route of small and quaint to a huge, over-the-top ceremony. Nichelle offers an array of packages to work with any and all budget constraints; that are custom-made to your desire.
