Our style would be best described as journalistic with an artistic flair. Our speciality is creating and capturing moments for you to cherish for a lifetime. Seamlessly going from an emotional bridal suite, to carrying that emotion over to portraits with the bride and groom, and getting shots of a crazy reception dance party that actually feel like you are there are what we specialize in.
Here are some of our favorite shots and some of the stories behind them.
We believe a wedding album is the absolute best way to enjoy your wedding photography, that is why all of our wedding packages comes with at least one of our expertly designed wedding albums. There is just something magical about reliving your wedding through the story telling that can only happen with a wedding album.
***Slow down and really enjoy looking at this album. Don't just quickly click through the pages, you will miss the story. Each spread, like a chapter in a book, tells a part of the wedding day story all its own. Only when viewed all together can it be fully appreciated. Now imagine your wedding day story told in this beautiful format...
All wedding coverage include:
To book us, we first require a meeting in person. If in person is not possible, we require a phone call or Skype with both the bride and groom. We want to make sure we both are a good fit for each other. After that, we’ll require a $500 retainer (that does go towards your package) and a signed contract by the bride and groom. Once all that is competed, your date will be marked off!
ASAP. Now, that is not to say we won’t be available last minute. But the sooner you know and book us, the sooner we can mark your date off the calendar. There’s always a few hot dates every year where we get tons of inquiries for. So the sooner the better!
Absolutely not. Your photographs are custom made by my hands only. I would not trust photography to a "hired gun" second shooter and neither should you.
You will do all of the ordering at your premiere. The premiere consists of a cinematic presentation of your photographs along with a design consultation to finalize your album and wall art orders.
Of course we will never force anyone, but we think engagement sessions are a MUST for a couple reason. First, it’s a great way for you to see what we do and how we work before the wedding. It gets you a little more comfortable with us and the camera. Secondly, our engagement sessions are very different than most other photography sessions. We have adopted a new style of photography called Beloved. This style is more about you having an experience with each other. We loosely pose you and give you an opportunity to genuinely laugh, smile together. We want you to be so wrapped up in what you guys are doing and experiencing, that you forget we are they’re taking pictures. It’s a fun time for all of us and a great reflection of who you are as a couple . The photos won’t just show what you look like, but will show who you truly are! We fell love in love with this style of photography because of the authenticity and realness that is created. And we get to know you guys a little more!
On the wedding day, we think it’s VERY important to set aside time with just the bride and groom. SO many times it’s forgotten in the craziness of the day or planning. We’ll take anytime we can get, but 20-30 minutes is a great amount of time to spend some time with just you two on your wedding day away from everyone else.
Keep in mind this is only our OPINON. If you hire us, we’ll do whatever you want us to do! But for the question of a first look or not, we’d recommend one! There’s a couple reasons: 1.) It relieves the stress and tension of walking down the aisle. Many brides that have chosen to do a first look have told us they were nervous about the wedding before hand. Once they had their first look and had some time with their soon to be spouse, the nerves were calmed and they were excited to get on with everything. 2.) With a first look, you have time to talk to each other. As photographers, we’ll find a quiet place, snap some photos when you first see each other, then give you two some time to yourselves. You can actually have time to tell each other about your day and how you feel. 3.) The more pictures we can take before the ceremony, the less stressful it is after the ceremony. Guests don’t want to wait forever while the bride and groom are taking group pictures. We try to go as fast as we can, but the more we get done prior, the less we have to do after!
That all depends on a few different variables. We spend months getting to know you and to find out what is special about your wedding. We will be taking tons of pictures on the day. Part of our service to you is to narrow that amount down to around 400 pictures. Even that is WAY more than anyone needs to look through. But bottom line, we want to give you the photos that best tell the story of your day!
Yes we take groups and formal portraits. As you might have noticed,we don’t share those on our website. We know those pictures are important to you, so of course, we’ll do what we need to get them. However, its not where we set our priorities. We take them, but it’s not why people hire us. Be sure to schedule plenty of time for groups and formal pictures. We encourage setting aside 4 minutes per family group to give you and idea of time.
As much or as little as you want. At the premiere we will begin by showing you an album pre-design. The pre-design is how we would make your album if we had complete creative control. It would be how we would tell the story of your day if it was up to us. Most people think it is a great starting point. From there, you can order the album as is, or make as many changes as you want. Bottom line, it’s your album. You will live with it the rest of your lives!!! So we want you to LOVE it!
YES! Have camera, will travel!! We LOVE to go to new places!
