We are artists who feel very fortunate to have turned our craft into our full-time career. We have spent years fine-tuning and perfecting what we do. We 100% believe that this is the most important part of your wedding day. You will never get this day back, so please don't settle for anything less than images that speak directly to your heart.
Our FRIEND offered to shoot our wedding for free. Why should we hire professionaLS?
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Contact us to receive all the details! We will send you our contract so you can carefully look over it before signing it and sending it back to us. We also require a $500 non-refundable deposit in order to lock your date into our calendar.
We really prefer to not be given a shot list, as this severely inhibits our creative freedom. We hope that you'll hire us because you love our work and trust us to create something beautiful for you! (However, we will gladly work off a shot list for the family group portraits, so we don't miss any important combinations.)
Can I give you a shot list of my favorite wedding photos from Pinterest?
We both shoot primarily on Canon 5D Mark IIIs, and we have 50mm, 35mm, and 24mm lenses. If we're doing video, we will also use our 5D Mark II and 7D, along with a 24-105mm and a 70-200mm lens.
what kind of cameras do you use?
CAN YOU DO BOTH PHOTO + VIDEO AT MY WEDDING?
Yes! We do both photo + video at most of our weddings. With two of us shooting, we are able to cover all the bases. Choose the photo package you'd like, and then we can add on the highlight video for a flat rate of $700.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST POPULAR PACKAGE?
Our Memoir Package is by far our most popular photography package, while our Deluxe Package is our most popular video package.
DO YOU HAVE PRINT PACKAGES?
We don't have set print packages, but we do offer prints and canvases, which are available for purchase through your online gallery. Our personal printer is the only one we recommend, as the quality is unmatched. We also receive a bit of commission from all sales made through your online gallery, so we greatly appreciate that!
HECK yes! We travel long-distance for a handful of weddings every single year. All we ask for is gas to get us there and back (or plane tickets) and somewhere to sleep for the weekend.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
In our humble opinion, yes! We find that couples who do their engagement session with us are much more comfortable and relaxed in from to the camera on their wedding day. Plus, it gives us a chance to get to know each other better! That way, we aren't just "the photographers" when we show up on your wedding day; we're "Shelley and Portugal!"
SHOULD WE DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
AFTER MY WEDDING, HOW DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS FROM YOU?
We will send you a small preview gallery of 15-30 images a few days after your wedding. About 1-2 months after your wedding, we will send you a password-protected link to your full online wedding gallery. Here, you will be able to download single images, download the entire gallery to your computer, make "favorites" lists, and order high-quality prints and canvases directly through us. You are welcome to share this link with anyone who would like to see the photos, though the link will expire at the end of the year.
If we created a wedding video for you, that will be posted online for easy sharing.
When we're finished editing everything, we will send you a custom package including a photo USB, a DVD (if videos were purchased) and any parent packages you ordered.
If you ordered an album, we will work together on the layout after we send you the online gallery link. Once you've approved the final layout, it takes about a month to get the album from the printers.
