TOLD THROUGH OUR IMAGES
WHAT IS OUR
AND HOW DO WE WORK?
Our approach to photography isn't exactly photojournalistic - if you're standing in a dark corner while getting dressed or doing something important we will definitely have you move to a prettier area - but we do like to photograph the day as it happens organically. We take control and give direction when needed (hello bridal party!) and we will give you little things to do to take your mind off of being photographed and bring out natural reactions and emotions, but we try to blend in as much as possible and allow you to enjoy your day.
BUT ASK US ANYTHING THAT WE MISSED!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is your payment schedule?
How do you deliver your images and how soon will we receive them?
We require a retainer of $1500 and a signed contract in order to reserve your date. The second payment is due six months before your wedding and the final payment is due thirty days before your wedding.
All of our images are delivered in a beautiful and easy to use online gallery. The gallery is active for 10 years after your wedding date, and you and your guests can easily save your photos, share them to social media and order prints from our lab! You will receive your finished gallery within 90 days (and I'm not making any promises but it's usually sooner!).
Do you work from a shot list?
Do you deliver every photo from the wedding day?
We don't work from a shot list, and please don't ask us to! If we are trying to work from a list that you found online it's more likely that we will miss the candid moments that everyone loves so much! We have photographed over 200 weddings and know what is important, and because there are two of us we will most likely capture everything that would be on your list anyway. This doesn't apply to family photos - we always create a list with you to make sure we get everything that is important to you. You're in capable hands, we promise!
Nope! We don't deliver every photo - immediately after the wedding we cull out all of the blinks, blurry photos that happen when someone walks in front of the camera, or occasional duplicates where we hit the shutter button twice in a row (or in Peter's case fifteen times in a row). Those photos are deleted right away, however we would gain absolutely nothing from holding back ANY beautiful images so we promise you aren't missing anything! We typically deliver 600+ photos for an average 7 hour wedding.
WE ARE FULLY INSURED.
Because everyone always asks.
WE HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT.
LOTS of backup equipment. We each have two cameras with us at all times, and we have a few others in our giant equipment case in addition to that.
WE HAVE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS SINCE 2012.
A friend (hey Todd!) asked us if we wanted to photograph his sister's wedding - we had never photographed a wedding on our own before but said 'what the heck, why not!' Thankfully for everyone it went great haha. Shortly after, we started our business and here we are now!
PLEASE DON'T GHOST US.
We know it's bound to happen sometimes, but we are genuinely excited every time we receive an inquiry and put a temporary hold on your date until we hear from you. We can check in with you until you answer, but we try not to be annoying - just send us one line that says you booked someone else and we'll be happy!
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT
DURING YOUR TIME
SPENT WITH US?
We’ll ask you to walk and chat and dance, and we’ll also ask you to kiss while we’re all up in your faces. There will be lots of laughing and holding hands and forehead kisses and you’ll probably feel awkward but we promise that the photos are worth it - we try to make it as fun and stress free as possible. We just like to have fun and laugh and we love couples that are up for anything.
First, we'll make you get close. Then we'll make you get closer. We love intimate moments. The moments that are genuine and real and the moments that make you say ‘that’s so us’ when you see the photos. During your session we’ll chat with each other, we’ll play games, and we’ll give you directions and actions so that you’re acting like yourselves and not stuck in a stiff pose that’s making you uncomfortable.
We've spent years creating and refining wedding collections that work for most people, however if you don't see exactly what you're looking for we are more than happy to work with you to create a custom collection for your wedding day. Not every wedding is one size fits all and we want you to be 100% satisfied with your decision to book with us so don't hesitate to reach out if you don't see what you want. We're friendly, I promise!

PRIVATE ONLINE GALLERY
PERSONAL PRINT RELEASE
Having worked in the wedding industry for so long, we know what a wedding schedule should look like for a stress-free day. We work with you to create a timeline that lets you get the all the photos you want while still enjoying your day and spending time with your friends and family. We've worked with photographers in the past that seem to forget that your wedding day is about YOU and not about getting images for their portfolio (although that is a bonus!). We know what photos need to be taken and we work efficiently to get you back to your reception as quickly as possible.
BECAUSE YOU DESERVE TO EAT ALL OF THE DELICIOUS FOOD THAT YOU PAID FOR.
