HECK YES. We travel long-distance for about half of our weddings every single year and offer custom packages tailored to your needs. Please inquire for details!
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
We always say that we don't photograph models; we photograph real people! You might feel that you come off as awkward, but we're here to help you feel comfy enough to be yourself. That's where the natural connection and beautiful moments can organically unfold - when you forget we're taking photos. And don't worry about feeling stiff and awkward, because we will gently prompt & direct you as needed. You're gonna look GOOD.
P.S. This is why an engagement session is included with all our photo packages. Get over the camera-shyness BEFORE your wedding day!
I DON'T THINK WE CAN LOOK LIKE THE PEOPLE IN YOUR PHOTOS. WE’RE TOTALLY AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA!
Yes! Our couples love that we offer both photo + video services to serve them on their wedding day. We do both photo and video at about half of our weddings each year. We have a solid system for tag-teaming coverage so that all the highlights are covered in both formats. To create a hybrid package, choose the photo package you'd like and then add on the highlight video for a flat rate. We can also be hired for videography only.
CAN YOU DO BOTH PHOTO + VIDEO AT MY WEDDING? HOW DOES THAT WORK?
We LOVE to hear it! Shoot us a message through the Contact page and don’t spare any details when sharing your story with us. We definitely want to ensure we're the best fit for you, so Shelley would love to hop on the phone for a 30-minute phone call to hear more about the big day. The next step will is signing the e-contract and paying the 50% retainer to reserve your date.
WE LOVE YOU. WE LOVE YOUR WORK. HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
We customize each wedding video to each couple, and sometimes having music-only is the couples' preference. In your pre-wedding questionnaire, we will run through all the details with you and ask specifically if there is anything special and personalized planned, like hand-written vows or speeches. This will help us get a solid idea of what matters most to you for your wedding video so that we can create something custom just for you guys. No formulas here. :)
WHY DO SOME VIDEOS HAVE voice audio WHILE OTHERS DON’T?
We are artists fortunate enough to have turned our craft into a career. After documenting over 300 weddings in the last 10 years, we've come to learn that we do a whole lot more than just show up with our cameras. By hiring us, you're not just hiring seasoned, artistic photographers — you're getting two friends in your corner to fully support you on your wedding day. When working with us, you can expect clear communication, expert guidance and resources for troubleshooting a stress-free wedding timeline, and total support on your wedding day to make it as awesome as possible. We want you to have the best day ever (and of course, photos of the best day ever). So to answer this question… please do not settle for this incredibly important decision, or else in a couple of years you'll be wishing for photos that were never taken.
Logistically, we conduct our business as professionals with insurance, contracts, and backup gear. Hiring professionals means worrying less and feeling excited about their contribution to your big day.
OUR FRIEND OFFERED TO SHOOT OUR WEDDING FOR FREE. WHY SHOULD WE INVEST IN PROFESSIONALS?
Having a rigid shot list to follow is actually quite counter-productive to our candid, natural approach. We will already be capturing all of the highlights, portraits, group shots, decor, and details of the day, as well as the candid moments that can't be planned. But aside from the anticipated moments and details, we definitely want to know what you all are planning! This is why we will send you a questionnaire about 2 months before the wedding so we can pick your brain about your vision for the day. Here, you can let us in on any important details, people, or moments you'd like us to be aware of. We'll also send you a list for family group photos so you can modify and adjust it to fit your needs. Aside from that, we'll be capturing everything we witness on your wedding day. We are so thankful that our couples get excited about us creating beautiful images specifically for them!
CAN I GIVE YOU A SHOT LIST OF PHOTOS I WANT YOU TO TAKE?
We'll send you a sneak peek slideshow 1-2 weeks after the wedding (get EXCITED!) and about 1-2 weeks after that is when we'll send you link to your full wedding gallery. This is where you can download images and order prints and canvases directly through us. If you know anything about us, you know that we are BIG believers in getting your photos off the screen and into your hands. This is why an album is included in our packages - we believe this is the best way to truly experience the visual narrative of your day for the rest of your lives. Get inspired with real wedding albums HERE.
If we're also creating your highlight video, your video will be posted online for easy sharing 4-6 weeks after the wedding.
AFTER MY WEDDING, HOW DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS/VIDEO?
Showing up and shooting your wedding day is only half of what you're paying us for. The other half is all the editing: removing unflattering photos (blinks, misfires, duplicates), editing all the best images, looking back over everything to make sure it's all perfect, and finally delivering an incredible gallery that tells the story of your wedding day from start to finish. We pinky promise that nothing worth seeing by you will be excluded!
CAN WE SEE THE RAW/UNEDITED PHOTOS AND FOOTAGE FOR OURSELVES?
"Their end product is incredible, not to mention how fun they are to work with during the entire process."
