Frequently Asked Questions
What is your shooting style?
Our work is a mixture of photojournalistic and traditional styles.
What is the difference between photojournalistic and traditional styles?
The main difference is the photographer’s approach to capturing your wedding day.
The photojournalistic style is meant to capture the day as it unfolds, capturing authentic, candid moments of smiles, hugs, tears and laughter. The purest form of this style features no direction by the photographer to their subjects.
The traditional style focuses primarily on posed photographs. It harkens back to the days of film photography, where each scene is carefully lit and posed. There is little emphasis on candid scenes as the photographer directs every subject present in a scene.
So wait, what part of each style do you use?
We blend the best parts of both styles. We’re always ready to capture those authentic, candid moments as they occur – BUT we’re so totally down to make you look your absolute best by nudging you just a little bit toward the amazing (and flattering!) light we see nearby. We’re not afraid to give direction to our subjects but also know how to frame a shot with the natural elements in a given scene.
Should we send you a shot list?
We can absolutely look over your shot list, let you know what we think and try our best to incorporate your vision with ours. At most weddings, we take a set of portraits of the newlyweds with various groups of loved ones – we LOVE having a list of those groups. The more organized we are for those portraits, the faster we can get everyone to the reception and start the revelry!
How many images will we receive?
While each wedding is different, with varying amounts of activities going on, we typically provide about 50 images per hour of coverage. We don’t set a hard limit on the number of photos you’ll receive. Trust us, if it’s a good image we want you to have it!
When will we receive our photos?
You will receive your edited photos no later than 90 days after your wedding. Depending on our schedule, we may deliver the images much sooner and we will let you know what to expect. We also provide a few select images to our clients the day after the wedding.
What is required to book a session?
To book your wedding date, we require a non-refundable deposit equal to 50% of the total fee along with a signed contract. The remaining balance is due no later than the day of your wedding
Can you tell us more about the contract?
Ofcourse! We require a contract to ensure that everyone understands the services we are providing to you and what you are providing to us for those services. We take our responsibilities very seriously and feel that our contract provides an added level of trust appropriate for such an important day in your lives.
