WEDDING GUIDE

2017

banner.jpg

We believe that weddings are a social celebration of a very sacred commitment. We feel honored to be participants in every wedding we shoot. Most of all, weddings are filled with beauty and magic that emerges effortlessly around the story of your day.  We believe our job is to capture that magic in the most authentic and organic way, unobtrusively and honestly. 

We are a creative documentary photography studio. Our focus is on a mixture of documentary and fine art photography. We strive for a perfect combination of timeless elegance and fresh style. We limit the number of posed and staged photographs and try instead to highlight the laughter, tears, and the passion that you and your guests will be feeling without our heavy involvement. We understand that each couple is unique in their style, personality, and biography and strive to produce images that reflect that individuality.  

These are the images that will be saved and looked through for generations.  We provide multiple wedding packages to choose from, depending on the size and timeline of your wedding. We are always happy to create a custom package to fit your day. Just drop us a line.

Engagement sessions are a great time for us to get to know each other. You get used to my camera up close and i learn how the both of you move together. This really helps for your wedding day when we have a tight timeline .... we are no longer strangers in what we are here to do... create the best possible, real and natural images. 

Besides all that, you will use these images. Whether you use them for a guest sign in book or for a few canvas's for your wedding decor, there is nothing like a gallery of professional images where you are not in a wedding gown, where it is just focused on you as a couple.

This is a great session to shoot in locations you love, doing things you love.... or just hanging out in your home. 

Its all kinda magical, your story is magical and has a history and togetherness, a connection to each other .. lets get capturing.

F&Q

how would you describe your style?

Our style is really a hybrid. We love to document organically with a mixture of fine art. We have so many inspirations that come from so many different places and we try to implement them into our images. Your own wedding will inspire us. We love the raw emotion of photojournalism and the mysterious look of fine art. In short, we like to say "fine art documentary". We believe in great natural lighting, incredible backgrounds and choosing locations very carefully. As far as our documentary style - we never interrupt a moment. We never pose situations that are already too magical on their own. We are an observer most of the time with very limited intrusion only when it is desired to achieve a particular artistic vision. 90% of our images are completely natural and un-posed.

We love your style, but would love to have some traditional portraiture.

We do traditional family portraiture at most of our weddings. Even the most modern brides still want the heirlooms that family portraiture creates. We do not however conduct portrait sessions in a traditional way. Instead, they are very loose, fun and show off your personality. We will spend only around 20 minutes on any posed photographs out of a typical 8 hour day.

When will we get to see out wedding gallery?

We know you are excited and do our best to have your online gallery available as soon as possible. Depending on our workload, our timeline is between 6-10 weeks. We try our best to post a couple of sneak peeks on social media before your wedding gallery is sent.

What editing do you do?

We edit for color and contrast. Images going to print or used in your album are edited for any distracting elements and / blemishes. If you have a blemish on your wedding day that is not "part of your person" please let us know and we will do our best to remove these from any portraits.

When will my album be ready?

Once you have selected the images you would like to include for your album from your gallery, Let us know you are complete. You can expect your first draft for your album in 2 weeks (depending on our workload and time of year) From the first draft we will make up to 3 revisions until you are completely satisfied and we are able to send to print which could take up to one month.

How do we book you?

We will have you sign a wedding coverage agreement and secure your date with a 50% retainer, with the final amount due one month before your wedding date.

Should we feed you?

Yes please, we would love a meal with coverage that is 6 hours or longer. Hungry photographers are not focused. The best time for us to eat is when you are eating, this way we don't miss a thing.
