What are your wedding day rates? Please contact us through the contact form above to receive information about our rates & our associate’s rates.
How would you describe your style? We focus our efforts on telling the story of your wedding day through moments. Quite simply put, we love moments, big and small, from your best man getting down on the dance floor to your father fixing your veil just before you walk down the aisle. We like to be in the action capturing these moments while attempting to stay unobtrusive.
Why should we hire you? Because we take photos that show who you two are as a couple; when you show your kids your wedding photos they can get to know who you were when you got married. We are experienced, having shot over 275 weddings each, extremely passionate about photography, and truly love weddings. Lastly, we want you to relive your wedding day every time you look through your wedding album.
How do you handle destination weddings? Since we likely will not be able to meet in person we are always happy to set up a Skype consult to get to know each other before the big day. We like to arrive to the city 2 days before the wedding to assure that we will be there in case there are travel delays. At the time of booking we will let you know how much our travel fees are based on the estimated cost of flights, car rental (if necessary), and hotel. We handle all the bookings for travel so you do not have to worry about it.
What is your backup plan? In the unlikely event that we would be unable to shoot your wedding due to something tragic we have a network of wedding photographers we can call in an emergency.
What is the album process? When the gallery is uploaded you will have the opportunity to select your favorites for the album. We recommend that album selections be made within 1 month of receiving the wedding photos.
Who will be photographing our wedding? We offer packages with Caroline, Ben, & associate photographers. Every package includes an assistant photographer who covers different angles as well as assists with lighting during portraits. Your personal photographer will always be listed on your contract and you will work directly with them throughout the process.
How do we book? To reserve your wedding date we require a non-refundable retainer of 40% of your package price & a signed contract which can all be done online once we send over a booking proposal. For destination weddings we accept a 1/3 deposit, 1/3 at 6 months, and 1/3 at 3 weeks before the wedding date.
How do we schedule a session with you? Because of our busy weekend schedule with weddings and destination weddings we only schedule portrait sessions between Monday-Thursday. We like to start sessions 2 hours before sunset for the best lighting.
Do you shoot details and family formals? Absolutely. Before the wedding day we will finalize family formal list so we know who to cover and we always make sure to cover all the details that make your wedding gorgeous.
What sort of equipment do you bring to a wedding? Your wedding day will only happen once and it is important that a professional photographer have reliable gear and always have a backup just in case something were to go wrong. We bring multiple camera bodies and lens as well as a second photographer to make sure that we capture your day without pause. Here is a list of some of my equipment.
