What style do you specialize in?

Both of us are trained as photojournalists, so our specialty is capturing candid moments. Of course we still love taking all of those important posed photos with loved ones, but we really love to capture the in between moments when you aren't posing for the camera or waiting for us to click the shutter. We like to capture moments like when a bride's grandpa pulls her aside at the reception and whispers a funny joke in her ear or when the bride's dad and bride's son step off to the side of the dance floor to share a lick of a cupcake. We are always ready to capture any crazy idea the bride and groom might have during their big day, just like the time a bride decided to shotgun a beer right before walking down the aisle to calm her nerves. We are there and excited to capture the moments you will definitely want to remember forever.

Will the photos be retouched and color balanced? Is that done before I see the proofs?

All of the photos will be exposure and color corrected to our liking. We have experience on proper toning techniques for your photos so no need to worry about that. We will do this with every photo we give to you.

How many photos do we get?

For a wedding, you will receive between 500-1000 images of your entire day.

How will we receive our images?

Please let us know if there is a specific way you prefer otherwise this is how we get you your photos. We will send you a link with all of your photos uploaded and that will be where you can easily view all of the photos. There you can instantly download high resolution photos and use them for print or on social media. Within the next week of releasing all of the photos you will receive a flash drive with all of your high resolution files on it along with any other goodies from your package.

What will be on the USB drives?

There will be high resolution JPEG images. 

Do you provide printing and distribution releases?

You can print your photos however you’d prefer. You may order prints from us directly or you can take the USB anywhere you would like. Feel free to distribute all of your photos on the internet including, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

How long does it take to get the photos after a session?

It could take as little as a few hours to a week. We will not take longer than a week to send you the entire set of photos.

How long does it take to get the photos after a wedding?

We allow up to four weeks for post-processing. The reason it takes so long is because we go through each individual photo to make sure that it is color corrected and looking the best it can be before we give it to you. Believe me we want you to see your photos just as much as you want to see them! Be patient with us because we are working as quickly as possible and we take a lot of photos on your big day.

DISCLAIMER: We are both very flexible people, so if there is anything that you want or need that is different from any of this, we can happily work with you. If there is something that we didn’t answer here that you are curious about send us an email and we are happy to answer all of your questions.
