“You guys are way more fun than my wedding photographer” ~ Groomsman
Take a moment and think of the most beautiful image you have captured – be it on your phone or camera, an amazing vacation location or a special moment with friends/family. Ask yourself – is it the image that is special or the experience that surrounded that moment? Do we love the image or the memories and emotions it inspires?
We believe the most incredible photographs go hand-in-hand with an amazing experience, which is the foundation of our approach to weddings.
Your wedding day is about you and your experience. Our job as your photographers is to provide you with the best possible experience and capture you – the Real you – as you experience all the amazing events that make your day special.
We are there to support and guide as needed, the whole time documenting your story as it unfolds organically. Of course we are always ready and happy to make suggestions as we want an amazing outcome just as much as you do, but we will always follow your lead – unobtrusively jumping in to capture a quick photo and then backing away to allow you to enjoy the moment as it happens.
The process & what we deliver
Planning and engagement shoots
Your experience doesn’t begin or end with your wedding day.
Planning before the special day and communication throughout the entire process are key. From an initial meeting at our studio or over a coffee/tea, we look forward to learning more about you as a couple and not just clients.
We’d love to sit down and chat with you about your plans, bring along some of our albums to show you our work and allow you to ask any questions you may have.
This is also the reason we like to include complementary engagement shoots for our couples – what better way for us to interact and all become more comfortable with the wedding day process? An engagement shoot is the perfect opportunity for you to get comfortable with us and the cameras, not to mention an opportunity to create some great images!
Your wedding day
Everyone loves a good story, including us. Therefore, we prefer our coverage of your day to be complete from beginning to end.
From hair and makeup through the evening’s celebration, we’ll happily work with you and your budget to capture your day and tell your story the way it deserves to be told. We take great pride in the album we create for each couple and we want it to be as amazing and complete as you do.
Our experience with studio shoots allows us to be ready for any environment – incorporating studio lights well as natural light to ensure we capture the best possible images. We also provide themed photo booths or can discuss any other fun and unique offerings to add to your celebration.
Throughout the day you can expect us to be respectful observers, capturing the moments as they happen and doing our best to remain as unobtrusive as possible.
After the celebration
We know our couples are excited to see images. We are the exact same way!
The morning after a wedding (sometimes that night after we get home!) we sit down to start reviewing the moments we captured throughout your day. There are always a few favorites and we’ll release those special images within a few days of the celebration for you to share with family and friends.
From there we get down to work – we review each and every image captured – removing any ‘misses’ such as eyes closed or unflattering shots – we also color correct and edit as we go – this results in a collection of approximately 500-800 images that will all be delivered to the couple.
Then the real fun starts – we begin to narrate your story through the design of your album. This is where our creativity flows and we get to tell your story through the images we’ve captured.
This process leads us to our next meeting which ends up being a special one – we present you with draft of your album (as a video slideshow) along with a proof book of images for you to take with you and review.
From there we work with you to tweak your album and once you are happy with the finished product, we send it off to be printed. Along with the album we include a private online gallery for you to share with family and friends.
