We seek to create an environment of freedom within all of our photo-shoots. We desire for our sessions to be an experience for our clients, where they come alive in their love, their beauty, and feel fully themselves. We find a variety of creative ways to make our couples feel more comfortable and at home in front of our cameras. We believe that the best images are true to the stories that they reflect, and it's not a one-size fits all game. We understand that everyone is different and that every love story is unique, and we want to capture your love the way that it is - because that's what will make you feel things when you look at them 25 years down the road.
What should we expect when we shoot with you?
Expect to have a lot of fun, hear a lot of bad jokes and puns, move around, make out, get out-of-the-box, and maybe even a little messy. Ever seen those breathtaking, secluded mountain-top sessions? 9 times out of 10, that took some adventuring over dirt and rocks. BUT, we won't make you do anything you're uncomfortable with. When you work with us, we work for you!
Do you require a deposit or retainer to book?
I do. 30% non-refundable retainer for weddings and a $50 non-refundable deposit for family sessions is made to reserve your date. Once this is done I will be contacting you to setup a time to discuss your session in great detail.
Can we create our own session?
I am more than happy to customize something based on your wish-list and/or budgetary constraints. All weddings have a budget and I want to minimize your stress.
Do you travel?
Of course. I love shooting at new/different locations. I find it so inspiring. Pricing may vary depending on the distance. I will travel within 2 hours for no charge. Bonus points (and discounts!) if you help us check off our bucket list ;)
Do you have backup equipment?
That’s a silly question. I absolutely have backup equipment. Check out my about me page to see my "running" list of equipment. And I'm always adding gear...just ask my wife :)
On average, how many photos do you deliver?
On average, you can expect to receive 75-100 photos/hr from us. However, we focus on quality over quantity - we believe it's less about our shutter count and more about the moments captured. That being said, we do typically deliver multiple shots and perspectives to choose from, and aim to always overshoot. You won't be lacking!
Can we provide you a shot list?
Three months before your wedding I send out a questionnaire for you to fill out. This helps me learn about the timing of your day and also your family dynamic. Based off of this questionnaire I build a preliminary family portrait list. I also ask you to send along any other important people that you would like photographed.I like to tell YOUR story. It is my goal to photograph real moments between my couples.
How will family and friends see wedding images?
There are two ways. Here on my website I will post my favorite images. Also each wedding will receive an online gallery by Pixieset. This is where you, your friends, and family can view all images from your special day. Feel free to share this information with whoever you choose.
How long does it take to see our wedding images?
Some immediately. I've been known to find my "fav" picture(s) in the parking lot as I'm about to leave. Usually texting links to those so you can share them on your social media accounts. Then a full delivered gallery in three weeks from your ceremony.
Are we a good fit?
We know that we are not the photographers for everyone, but we seek to work with clients who identify with us and our work. If you are looking for photographers who are fun, authentic, genuine, and outside-of-the-box, we may be a good fit. If you like photos that are playful, moving, moody, and timeless, you will love our work. // We aren't the kind of photographers to just show up and get the job done in the traditional sense. We like to get involved and immerse ourselves in stories, which requires more time and attention than standard posing and simply smiling at the camera. We want to create images that make you feel something, which typically looks like us making space for candid moments between you and your love. While we work for our clients, we don't change who we are to accommodate to their stylistic preferences. If you have reviewed our work and feel comfortable with our editing style and the moments that we capture, we would love to talk with you!
