and how we do it.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1] Q- What is your style of photography?

   A- We use a mix of a fine art and a photo journalistic style to create artwork for your home and heirlooms that will be passed down for generations. We make sure to document the details; the smiles, the laughter, and the love that surrounds you.


2] Q- Do you shoot in film or digital?

   A- We are a hybrid photography studio. We shoot both in digital and film formats. We use professional grade DSLRs along with medium format and 35mm film cameras. 


3] Q- Will there be an option for black and white photos along with color?

   A- We do a mix of black and white and color photos. Any color photos delivered can be converted into black and white, but the images that are delivered in black and white cannot be converted into color.


4] Q- Can we meet with you prior to the wedding to go over details, discuss packages, and see samples?

   A- Of course! We actually require a meeting with each couple to discuss all of the details of their special day and to understand what they're looking for in their wedding photography. We are also available to walk through the wedding venue prior to the wedding.


5] Q- Do you include engagement sessions with your packages?

   A- All of our collections include a complimentary engagement session. Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know each other. Plus these sessions capture your personalities in a casual setting. Many couples use the engagement shoot photos for announcements, showers, and other pre-wedding events. It's also a good way for you to become comfortable in front of the camera and work out any issues before the big day.
 

6] Q- What is a second shooter? Who are they?

   A- A second shooter is an additional professional photographer. They shoot alongside me on the day of the wedding. They are there to provide extra coverage of the wedding and the events surrounding it. The size of your wedding and the package you select will determine how many photographers will be at your wedding.


7] Q- What is a first look? Why do you think it is important?

  A- A first look happens when the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. This is not traditional by any means, but is definitely worth considering. One concern that frequently arises is whether the bride and groom want to see each other for the before the ceremony or not. Unfortunately, due to the heavily orchestrated nature of most weddings once the ceremony begins the bride and groom have little time to savor the moment and just be with each other. Absent a first look, the bride and groom are immediately swept away for formal events, portraits, and then rushed to the reception. With a first look, the bride and groom are able to see each other alone and have a moment to laugh, cry, and chat before the ceremony. They’re then able to relax and be collected during the ceremony. The first look also provides some phenomenal photographs that are filled with emotion. With many of the photos taken prior the ceremony, it makes the family formals a bit more stress free. You're able to relax and spend time with your bridal party and guests before the reception begins.


8] Q- Can you travel out of state (or internationally) for our wedding?

  A- YES! We LOVE to travel! We have photographed weddings all over the US and internationally! We offer custom packages for destination weddings.
