we're glad you found us.
and we think you will be, too.
weddings are awesome and everyone wants theirs to be the most kick ass wedding ever. getting there, however, isn’t always a ton of fun. for many, wedding planning can often prove to be a ridiculously stressful and miserably complicated process. we, however, work really hard to avoid. our pledge is to ensure that you won’t experience any of that stress or frustration with us. we strive to make your the photography process – from initial inquiry to final gallery delivery – an enjoyable, stress-free and memorable one. how do we do that?
simple really: we approach our business in a manner that is transparent, flexible, accommodating and fair. after all, while this is a business transaction for us, it’s anything but that for you. and we never lose sight of the fact. getting married is a momentous event that should only be filled with love, happiness and excitement.
we find it best to discuss your wedding photography needs in-person, over the phone, or via any of the “telephony” apps (facetime, skype, hangout, zoom, etc.). in the meantime, below you’ll find answers to many frequently asked questions. this includes information about our pricing and our approach. check them out and then reach out to us. we’d love to talk with you about your big day and make sure we’re the perfect fit.
basically, it’s your day and we want it to play out naturally. we’re just along for the ride and we happen to have a camera.
this means we’re constantly looking for those genuine, candid moments. you won’t see us trying to arrange things to make for a good picture. we feel that’s inauthentic and it’s just not our style. we’re not shy and hanging back, though. we’ll be rubbing elbows with your guests and documenting the true experience of your day.
the only exception to all this, however, is during the portraits. this is a time when many couples get uncomfortable and need some guidance. so, this is when you’ll get plenty of direction from us to yield the best results. this is why we strongly suggest and get super excited about engagement sessions. this is a great opportunity to build some rapport between ourselves and acclimate yourselves to being in front of the lens.
pricing varies based upon a number of factors, but traditional packages start at $3600 and select discounts are available. we also have an “elopement & intimate” package available if you’re putting together a smaller wedding and looking for a less expensive option. for more pricing information, click here to fill out our contact form and we’ll get you our detailed pricing sheet.
all of our traditional packages include: two photographers; a 90-minute photobooth; all the final (approved and processed) hi-res and print/download ready images; delivery of images in a personal, password-protected online gallery with integrated store and full print and distribution rights; thumb drive of back-up digital files.
pretty much anywhere. seriously. as long as the state department doesn’t have a serious travel advisory in place for your chosen destination, we’ll go there.
we have an incredible destination wedding package. or, if you’d rather, we can build a custom package for you. if you’d like more information pertaining to our destination pricing, click here to fill out our contact form and we’ll get you our detailed pricing sheet.
you betcha. we process each and every image to ensure the exposure, color and overall aesthetic of all images are uniform and as we intend them to be.
yes. and no. yes, we will absolutely deliver each and every image worthy of being delivered.
but the ones where someone’s blinking or making a hideous face or accidentally blocking our shot, etc. etc.? no, those end up on the cutting room floor.
to get an idea of what a full gallery looks like, check out our “real weddings” page.
we try our hardest to get you a sneak peek within a week after the wedding. after that, you’ll get the full gallery in six (or so) weeks. but, sometimes, life gets in the way. jonathan has two little kids; justin owns and operates his own business. you get the idea.
bottomline: we don’t want to hold them hostage from you, so we’ll get them out to you as quickly as we can.
no, they are and will always be proprietary. however, we give you full print and distribution rights. basically, that means you can do with them as you wish as long as they’re not altered and you don’t make money from them. that’s just as good, right?
- we shoot with professional nikon gear (and yes, we have back ups);
- we dress comfortably yet appropriately;
- yes, we have insurance and can provide it if your venue and/or vendors needs a copy:
- no, we don’t do video but can refer some folks to you.
so, what do you say? ready to do this?
