Your love story is an intimate adventure that's as unique as you are. Doesn't It deserve a photographer who goes beyond simply capturing moments with light, and instead weaves their artistic vision, and your heartfelt emotion, creating something far greater than a photograph? I think so and that ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why I created Fifth Photography. I am a photographer for the adventurous souls of this world who desire far more than mere snapshots out of their wedding photos. So whether you're planning a grand romantic wedding, or an intimate elopement full of adventure, follow me off the beaten path and let's create something truly wonderful. We'll have a blast doing it too!

Packages - Fifth Photography

I want to ensure that you get the very best photos possible, this is a once in a lifetime event after all. So every wedding package can be tailored to fit your individual needs. But there are some things every package includes.

First and foremost, I place no limits on how many images you will receive. I go through every shot taken and select every shot you'd want to see. From there, every photo selected is color processed with my unique style, then edited to look its very best. Typically I don't do heavy retouching, as I try to get as close to a finished photograph as possible in camera, but if there was no way to get a shot without including that pesky telephone poll I'll photo shop it out. These aren't just your wedding photos, they are my artwork and I can't stand it if they aren't exactly right.

The final product of all that work will be delivered to you via a USB drive, as well as a private online gallery. The print rights are included so you can print them where ever you like. You also have the option of ordering prints from my professional lab of choice through your private online gallery. I highly recommend any prints 8x10 or larger be done through the online gallery for best results. Your gallery will be up forever, so you can always see your photos on the go or share it with loved ones.

Every package also includes an engagement session free of charge. Why? Let's face it, having your photo taken can be a little awkward and if the person taking your photo is some dude you've just met for the first time it can be even more uncomfortable. So let's not be strangers at your wedding. Nine years of photographing weddings has made it abundantly clear; if I do an engagement session with a client the wedding photos will always turn out better. You and your love are more comfortable being yourselves in front of my camera, and having met and photographed you before, I have a better sense of how you'll act around each other.  So let's be friends, not strangers. If you've already done an engagement session, then let's do something totally different. I'm more than happy to drive up into the mountains and create something wildly romantic with you. Ask any of my clients, I'll drive across the country if it means I get to create something beautiful.

Last, but certainly not least, I'm a photograph hoarder. That very first wedding I shot back in 2009, yeah, I not only have every high resolution JPEGs I delivered to the happy couple, but every RAW file I shot as well. And it's all backed up on multiple drives. So if in 17 years your computer is stuck by a meteorite reducing all your wedding photos to vapor, give me a call and I'll get a new copy of them to you. No one should have to worry about losing their wedding photos.


A wedding does not need to be an all day affair to be a thing of beauty. For up to six hours we'll create art, and memories all while having a blast.


Your wedding is a love story unique to you, so we'll spend the entire day together and create artistic photographs that convey the deep love between you and your partner. Resulting in art that captures the sweet laughs, tears, and smiles that only happen at a wedding.

Best photographer - hands down! Norman's photos are fantastic (I mean, just look at his website - )
We hired Norman for our wedding back in October. He totally prepared us for our special day - we stressed about nothing. He was professional, fun, and so easy to work with. We highly recommend Norman!

Norm from Fifth Photography. Where to even start? He deserves a billion stars! He is seriously the best photographer we could've asked for. He made us feel so relaxed and at ease. All of the photos, and I'm not kidding when I say ALL of them, are stunning. We thought there might be one or two that we may not care for, but he proved us wrong. We can't decide which one's are our favorites because there's just so many amazing moments that he was able to capture between the two of us and our family. We had a small elopement, only the bride & groom and our parents, and Norm fit right in making us all feel right at home. We got married in Yosemite National Park, and Norm made the trip to meet us there and helped pick out the best places for taking photos. He got our photos back to us super quickly, and we've had a blast showing them off to all of our friends, who can't help but fall in love with them, too. Norm also sent us a beautiful keepsake box with some of his favorite prints inside. This was the gesture that surprised us the most. We would have been totally fine with just getting a regular USB drive with our photos, because we had already seen a few of the "sneak peak" photos and knew how stunning they were. The pictures had already made us so happy, but Norm took the time to have a gorgeous keepsake box made to hold the personalized USB drive and single prints. We are in absolute awe of this man's ability to take the most amazing pictures we've ever seen and his generosity in all the little details he puts into everything. Thank you, Norm!!! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same with out you. EXTREMELY RECOMMEND, and I have already sent his info out to friends looking for future photo needs! Thank you for the magnificent memories :)

Norm Roberts (Fifth Photography) is an amazingly talented photographer who gives a reasonable price, is super friendly, flexible, and who really captures what you’re looking for. Norm shot our engagement shoot as well as our wedding. For our engagement shoot, we wanted a rustic shoot as well as beach photos. Norm captured both beautifully. My husband and I had shared with Norm before our session that we felt awkward in front of a camera, but Norm made us feel so at ease and captures natural, beautiful moments. He doesn’t try to make you do any pose you’d be uncomfortable and is all about ensuring you feel relaxed and enjoy your moment. We fell in love with both our rustic shoot and our beach shots, and couldn’t wait for Norm to photograph our wedding day. Norm asked to tour our wedding venue beforehand even though it is quite a drive for him because he wanted to gather ideas and familiarize himself with the location. To us, that was above and beyond. We just received our wedding photos (just a few weeks after our wedding) and they arrived in a beautiful package! They are in a beautiful wooden case with our names and wedding date engraved on top, and we opened it to find a usb with our names engraved on it, some printed photos of his favorite shots, and a thoughtful letter all included in beautiful packaging. When we accessed our photos (you receive them in a password-protected gallery as well as in usb form), we were amazed! He captured details from our wedding that made for intimate and stunning shots. Close-ups, wide shots, zooms, candids, etc. The pictures were varied and unique and that was exactly what we were looking for. To say we love our wedding photos is an understatement – we purchased an apple tv just to be able to show them to our families and friends in large format, and everyone who has seen them has been impressed by how great they are. If you are looking for a talented, reasonably priced, friendly, and passionate photographer, Norm is your guy. We already had several friends who viewed our photos and asked for his contact information and we will definitely recommend Norm to anyone and everyone we can. He is wonderful!

Norman was excellent to work with! He was patient, organized, punctual and communicated well. We were at ease during our wedding knowing that Norman had a plan and could easily direct groups of people in to the photos we wanted. Our pictures turned out perfectly- we have photos of our entire day and feel like nothing got missed. The quality is top notch. We would wholeheartedly recommend Norman of Fifth Photography as a photographer for your wedding.
