HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY? 

  • 2017 is our 10th season of wedding photography.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY?

  • Our style stretches between natural, candid, fun, emotion-filled, and detail-centered. We love the details, people, the music, the places, but mostly we just love finding what makes couples unique and noteworthy so we can capture the real love.

DO YOU CARRY LIABILITY INSURANCE?

  • Yes. We will send a copy of insurance to your venue if required.

HOW DO YOU IDENTIFY YOUR PRIMARY PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?

  • We focus on an organic, fine-art, non-traditional photojournalism.

  • We bring multiple layers of backup equipment including lenses, camera bodies, flash units, batteries etc. 

HOW SOON AFTER THE EVENT ARE THE PROOFS READY FOR VIEWING?

  • Typically 8-12 weeks depending on the wedding season.

IN WHAT FORMAT ARE THE INITIAL PROOFS OFFERED?

HOW LONG CAN THE COUPLE KEEP THE PROOFS?

  • Online proofing gallery will be available for 1 year.  You have the rights to reproduce the files, create prints, post the photos online for personal (non-commercial) use. You will also receive a printing release with the digital code once downloaded. 

HOW MANY PHOTOS ARE DELIVERED?

  • For a typical 9-10 hour wedding we deliver between 800-1800 photos. For a 90 mins engagement shoot we typically deliver around 30-50 photos.

DO YOU HAVE ANY REVIEWS OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES?

WHAT’S YOUR ALBUM DESIGN PROCESS?

Step 1: You get married, we take your wedding pictures.
Step 2: We post your pictures to an online gallery.
Step 3: We ask you to pick pictures that you want to include in your album.
Step 4: We design the album and send you a pre-design to approve.
Step 5: If you approve it, we’ll begin the printing process. If you want to make some changes, we’ll make the changes according to your requests.
Step 6: You receive a beautiful album!

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU GUYS FOR OUR WEDDING DATE?

  • Email or give us a call! If we have your date available we’d be happy to meet to see if we are a match. If we both feel like we will work well together, we require is a $1000.00 non-refundable deposit to hold your date. Our booking occurs on a first-come/first-serve basis, however we will not reserve your date until a deposit has been received. We accept cash, check or PayPal. The remaining balance will be due 2 weeks before your wedding.

DO WE HAVE TO PROVIDE MEALS FOR YOU GUYS DURING THE WEDDING?

  • Yes please! It’ll keep us going strong in getting those amazing images for you guys! We usually eat while the guests and bride and groom are eating, because most people don’t want their pictures taken with their mouths full. If you decide not to include vendor meals then we may have to leave to grab a bite to eat.

TIPS for sessions


TIPS for sessions


When it comes to the camera, no one (except for maybe a professional model) is prepared for what is to come! The best advice we could give someone is to be themselves and have fun with it. It’s not every day that you get to spend 2 hours together doing nothing but staring into each other’s eyes, holding hands, hugging, kissing and being super sweet to one another… so take advantage of that time! We want our couples to forget we are there! If we need you to do something specific, we’ll let you know but otherwise we just want to capture you guys being genuine and being together. When you forget about the camera and let loose, the best photos are created because the best moments happen without you even realizing

WHAT TO WEAR

We encourage our couples to wear outfits that bring out their playful, creative side. We are a big proponent of color – all colors are great, and when mixed together in coordinating fashion – they are even better. For example, if the bride is planning to wear a dress with pink, purple & yellow patterns, we would encourage the groom to wear a shirt that suits his taste and personality but maybe in a purple shade.  The colors on each of them will compliment each other! We also love to encourage our couples to bring along an outfit change so that they can add variety to their shoot. That being said, the colors of the second outfit should somehow correspond with the first so that the whole shoot can flow well together, while still being unique and colorful. In terms of accessories, they all work! Belts, earrings, necklaces – you name it! We like to highlight this stuff in our photos, so when we notice a unique accessory, we totally tie it into the shoot!


HAIR & MAKE-UP

We really think that people should be themselves! But professional make-up never hurt anyone. The camera loves professional make-up and it comes out looking so perfect on camera! Our goal of the engagement session is to capture the couple’s personalities, affection, character – so if they get too done up then the essence of who they are starts to become hidden. Also with tanning be careful! Some self-tanning lotions need time to mix with your skin. If you want a little more color for your photos, apply a self-tanner at least 2-3 days before your session. That way you don’t come out looking orange in all of your photos.


LOCATIONS

We shoot at different locations for almost every shoot. Our favorite spots are those you wouldn't suspect that a shoot could go on there. For example, we love finding random spots off of main roads and we are constantly scouting for new locations. We love abandoned building and locations with a lot of texture! Once we find a spot, we add it to our list and try to alternate between sessions. We like to keep sessions fresh and unique!
