WHAT TO EXPECT

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

On your wedding day, you can expect to barely notice us most of the time. (Think about us as your extra bridesmaid or groomsmen who's there just to make you look and feel good). We want every photo we take to be a genuine representation of a real memory. To that end, we'll gently guide you through the stages of your wedding day without posing you or faking things. We know the ins and outs of wedding days and managing scenes and emotion, and we do everything in our power to set our scenes before moments start happening. We may ask you to stand in a certain spot, or turn towards the light, as you're about to get into your dress, but once that process of getting into it starts, you won't even know we're there.
Because this day isn't about us.
It's about you, and that's how we want you to remember it.

WHAT TO EXPECT

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

We'll spend a lot of time before your wedding day learning all the important details, people, and traditions that you're incorporating into your day. We'll get a feel for your love story, your relationship, and your personalities, so on the wedding day you don't have to worry at all about the photos. Just sit back and let your day happen organically, resting in the knowledge that we're going to capture every tear, every spontaneous laugh, every moment of organic emotion, as well as all the carefully planned details you spent so much time and energy on. On your wedding day, making the day feel as natural as possible for you and then capturing that genuine emotion is our top priority.

WHAT TO EXPECT

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

We try throughout the whole day to foster genuine emotion and organic moments. One of the best ways we've found to do this is by building in space for that emotion to grow and be felt. At particularly emotional points in the day, we love to make space where you and your beloved can be alone, with no camera (I know right? WHAT???), so you can fully and truly be yourselves. Right after your first look, you'll get a few minutes alone, no camera. Right after the ceremony, you'll get time to yourself, no camera. And at some point in the evening we'll steal you away for sunset or night portraits, after which we'll leave you to return to the reception in your own time, again, with no camera. No pressure, no expectations, no performing. Just you, your spouse, and your emotions.

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

What do your packages include?

ANSWER

Every full wedding package includes two photographers and an engagement session. The number of hours of coverage determines the price, and we'll help you figure out how many hours is right for your wedding plans. For elopements, packages start with 2 hours of coverage with one photographer but can be added to to create your dream day. All shoots and packages booked with us also include high-res digital images with print rights (more on that if you keep clicking!)

QUESTION

Do you take shot lists?

ANSWER

We strive in all things to create as genuine an experience as possible for you. While we understand the value of inspiration boards, we think they should be just that; inspiration. If you hire us, it's because you trust us to capture your day and all its details without needing to be told what to shoot. Of course every wedding has unique details and we love hearing about those and definitely need to know about them ahead of time. But most of the time, stopping to pose or recreate a particular image takes away from the genuine moments that make a wedding day real and emotional.

QUESTION

How long before we get our photos?

ANSWER

Our turnaround time is typically around 4 weeks. Our contract states 6-8 just to cover our bases, and depending on how busy the season is our delivery time may vary slightly, but you'll never wait more than 2 months for your photos! For engagement shoots the turnaround time is about two weeks.

QUESTION

Can we print our photos wherever we want?

ANSWER

Absolutely! All our packages include high-res digital images with print rights, so you can print your photos anywhere you want! We firmly believe that photos shouldn't just live on your computer; get them out on your walls and shelves! Some of our packages even include a wedding album so you can get them off that hard drive ASAP. We also offer printing services for gift or framing prints.
