• Welcome to Hedrick Family Photography! – Modesto Wedding Photography and Portrait Photography

    Hello, I'm Ken Hedrick, a Modesto Wedding and Modesto Portrait photographer. I specialize in wedding and portrait photography in the Modesto and surrounding Central California area. I am committed to providing my clients exceptional photography at reasonable prices quicker than the competition.

    I strive to create photos that capture weddings and portraits that resonate with the individual personality and style of each person, family, or event I photograph. By incorporating natural moments and the unique elements of each location, I will capture more than just the person in front of the camera, but also the story and feel of the day.

    At Hedrick Family Photography, I will help clients to preserve memories and offer an enjoyable photography experience. My goal is to develop relationships with my clients and provide the kind of service that makes them see me as their family photographer, not simply a photographer.

    In addition to Modesto Wedding Photography, I also provide Modesto Portrait photography including engagements, family, children's, pet, maternity, newborn, high school senior, and glamour photography needs in Modesto and throughout the Central California Valley.

    All of our professional quality photographs will be available to my clients in digital format as well as print. I do not believe in omitting digital copies or charging clients an additional fee for them.

I had a greet time meeting Logan and shooting his Senior Pictures last weekend. Logan chose Knights Ferry as the location for his session. Knights Ferry always makes for a great location especially this time of year as the colors are starting to change. DSC_5551_edited-1

I’ve shot several sessions in Knights Ferry and with all of the natural backdrop its always easy to make sure every session is different. DSC_5525_edited-1







So if your looking for a great outdoor location for your Senior Pictures, Family Portraits, Maternity Session, etc consider Knights Ferry. There’s even a great fifties style diner to grab a cheeseburger when we’re through! DSC_5520_edited-1




I have been offering 15% off all Senior Portrait collections for the past two months. The offer expires on October 1st. This is a great time of year for Senior Portraits in the Modesto area so if you want to take advantage of this discount and all the beautiful fall colors outdoors you will need to book your session prior to October 1st.


It’s been a fairly busy summer. I’ve shot several glamour sessions, children’s sessions, a couple of weddings, a maternity session and a Fitness Promo session! I’ve bought a new lens specifically for weddings, and several new backdrops and other props!

Right now I have a Football Mini Session I’m offering. In case your not familiar with mini sessions, a mini session is several sessions scheduled on the same date each approximately 30 minutes in length. These sessions are $35 which includes the session fess, an 8×10 print and the edited digital images.  So if you would like to show your support for your favorite NFL or college teams, grab your jerseys’, hats and any other items you would like to include and give me a call to schedule your session.  The Football Mini Sessions are scheduled for October 3rd & 4th.


It’s time to start scheduling family pictures for your 2015 Christmas Cards! I will be posting Christmas Card Mini Sessions in a couple of weeks!



Ok so I’m a little bit new to this blog stuff and it’s been like 3 months since I posted my first and only blog.  Since then I’ve discovered that I should be posting at least once a week to increase my SEO rankings on the internet. Ok I’ll give it a shot.  Here we go!



I am offering 15% off my current rate on my Basic Print Collection on family portraits! The Basic Print Collection consists of session fee, (2) 8×10’s, (4) 5×7’s, (16) wallets and of course a CD with all edited images and print release. This is normally $185.00 but now until July 1st ONLY $153.00!


Ok so let me ask you when was the last time you had family pictures taken? How old are the kids now? How many new additions to the family? Pets? They’re family too. Include them in your family portrait session. So many changes happen so fast and you can easily record these memories by calling Hedrick Family Photography to schedule your family portrait session. A family portrait session only takes about 1 1/2 hours and by taking advantage of my current 15% off of the Basic Print Collection you’ll save $32.00 and receive beautiful portraits off your family printed by a professional print lab and suitable for framing and then displayed proudly in your home.

Welcome to the new website!

I’m really excited about it and hope all of our friends are too. If this is your first time visiting our site we’re glad to have you! The site is pretty much fully operable although I’m sure there will be some bugs to work out and I’ll be adding more features in the future. But for now please take the time to cruise around and explore.

Let me take a few minutes to tell you about a few areas of interest starting right here with the Blog. In this area I will be posting on a regular basis to share with you information about upcoming events, promotions, and perhaps a few contests with give aways! So be sure to check back often or subscribe to the blog by using the easy “subscribe” button on the navigation bar.

The second area that I’m really excited about is our “Client” area. Here you can find the proofs of your recent session. Its so simple to use. First you will be asked for your name and email address. This will create a cart in your shopping area. As you view your proofs you can mark your favorites, select the images for your package that you want printed as well as the size, and even order additional prints if you chose to do so. Then just fill out the shipping info and place your order. If you have already made payment just check the “manual” payment option. If you are adding any additional prints or products you now have the option of using PayPal!

Finally, I really appreciate your opinions and comments so feel free to comment on our blog page or leave a review of your session in our “Review” area!
