FAQs

Where are you located?

We would love to hear from you. Tell us about your big plans! One of our favorite things is to hear about all the little details you have envisioned for your wedding. We also love to hear about your personal story and how you and your fiance met and fell in love. Send us a message/text/or call us. If you live within our local area, we would love to meet you both and talk about what you need from us as your photographer. Our goal is to make sure that your wedding is captured in a way that allows you to revisit your happiest moments for years to come, and to do that we like to dive into the details right away. We also like to introduce ourselves to you! We don't view photography so much as a job, but more as a way to share our talents with you, our soon to be friends!

We like to keep our weddings no more than 18 months out from the booking date, mostly because life happens and we don't know what everyone's plans or life situations will be 1.5 years out. Most of our brides book us about 6-12 months from their wedding date. However, we have had brides book us up to a month before their wedding date, which we are more than happy to do if your date happens to be open on our calendar. Reach out to us and let us know your wedding date, and we will check our calendar and get right back to you with our availability!

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK?

We like to focus on the quality of the image provided to our clients more-so than the quantity. However, the amount of images we provide to our clients will be mostly dependent upon the amount of hours you have booked us for, and the overall flow of the day. We usually provide 500-800 fully edited images to our clients.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

Our turnaround time on getting your finished images to you will vary throughout the year, depending on if your wedding date is in the middle of our busy season. During the busy season you will usually receive your images within 6-8 weeks.

WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?

Yes! We value our work and consistency, so we spend quite a few hours culling and editing your entire gallery of images. We confirm that color, saturation and quality are consistent throughout each and every image we provide.

WILL ALL OF OUR IMAGES BE EDITED?

You bet! We love elopements, mostly because they are relaxed, intimate ceremonies between a small group of extremely close family and friends. We also love that most elopements are set away from it all, it feels like a getaway into the wild, which is right up our alley!

DO YOU SHOOT ELOPEMENTS?

I consider an elopement consisting of 15 family and/or friends, or less, and less than 4 hours in length. Any ceremony/reception longer than 4 hours, and more than 15 guests is considered a traditional wedding.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEDDING & ELOPEMENT

We bundle in a second photographer with some of our Collections. While second photographers are not necessary for you to get the images you hired us for, it is nice to have one at your wedding. A second photographer provides a second set of eyes, a different perspective to all of your photos, and is able to help take care of some of the shot list so I am able to spend more time focusing on the shots that matter to you most. 

DO YOU SHOOT WITH A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

Our equipment consists of: Canon 5D Mark IV Primary Body, Canon 5D Mark IV Second Body, Canon 5D Mark II Backup Body, Canon 50mm 1.2 L, Canon 70-200mm 2.8 II L, Canon 85mm 1.8,  Godox AD200 Flash System X2, Pentax 645NII, Fuji 400H, Portra 800, SMC 75mm 2.8, Pentax 105mm 2.4

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

To book me, you will need to select a Collection (or create your own through a custom Collection quote), sign a contract, and pay a deposit. All of our weddings are booked on a first come, first serve basis. However we do not hold dates unless a contract has been signed and a deposit has been paid.
