What is a digital image/ negative? Answer:

It is a high resolution fully edited image/file in JPEG format (16×20 print capability) that you are able to download and save to your computer. Think of an old picture negative expect this one is digital and can be saved and emailed to your local print shop to make actual prints. If your package doesn’t include all the digital negatives you can buy additional negatives for $25.00 per image.

 

What is your turnaround time? Answer:

My turnaround time on wedding photography is 8-10 weeks. By this time you will have all of your wedding images available to view, download and share via online gallery. All print products will be delivered to you 3-7 weeks after you have made your selections.

 

What is your photography style? Answer:

We pride ourselves on capturing real moments. Images that are timeless and authentic we are wedding journalists influenced by fine-art photography. We love using creative lighting, unique perspectives, angles, compositions and artistic post-production to bring out our clients personalities and beauty while telling their wedding story. We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery. To see examples of our quality and style click here

 

Do you touch up ( edit ) every image? Answer:

YES! Every image we deliver is edited with our unique style of basic post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. All the images you receive from us will be edited. We never deliver raw and unfinished images ever!


Wedding Tips

 

Accept that things will not go as planned that could mean inclement weather, forgetting that special something that you wanted to wear, or the events of the day running way off schedule, it happens so keep an open mind and allow spontaneity to take control, and make your wedding day uniquely yours. Candid moments are our favorite moments!

 

Include us on your guest list. Send us an invitation like everyone else; this gives us time to photograph it for you in advance instead of getting a quick shot on the wedding day. If your photographers are on the guest list, they will be seated with the guests, which ensures they are always with you and will never miss a moment of your reception. This also ensures we are fed in a timely manner (instead of a cold sandwich in a back-office far away from you when speeches are happening. Food is energy, and energetic, happy photographers are exactly what you want when you have four hours of dancing ahead of you.

 

The more lighting you can bring in, the better! We love uplighting (orange, red, purple and pink look the best; stay away from green and blue) we also love candles, chandeliers, pin lighting, and solid white Christmas lights! The more ambient lighting the better your photos will look 😉

 

Outdoor Receptions If you’re having a completely open-air reception, under the stars, we recommend adding as much extra lighting as possible, such as strands of twinkle lights and candles in hurricane vases. The extra lighting will help warm up your photos and add a prettier, more dynamic dimension. Otherwise, you will have a completely black background unless the reception takes place during the day.

 

Outdoor Ceremonies generally, the best time for an outdoor ceremony is 2-3 hours before sunset. The later time ensures the sunlight falls more evenly on the skin tones and is consistent for both the bride and groom (so you don’t have one person in the light, and the other in shadow).

 

Church Ceremonies before you book your church, please be sure to ask whether photography is allowed and if there are any restrictions. We are happy to work with anything, but it’s important for your own peace of mind to have realistic expectations in advance.

 


 

Wedding Timelines

Preparation Shots – Duration: 1 hours

Ideally, we would have 30 minutes for the girls and 30 minutes with the guys.

 

Couples session – Duration: 1 hour to 1.5 hours

We highly suggest doing this before the ceremony in conjunction with a “first look.” That way you can enjoy the rest of your day without having to worry about taking too much time out for photo’s. Also this is when the makeup and hair are fresh. We’ll set up a first look moment so it’ll still be a surprise when you see each other. Be sure to give us at least a full hour so we can capture the amazing shots you see in our portfolio.

 

Family Formals – Duration: 1 hour

Have a list of pictures that you want with your family/friends right after the ceremony. Typically this is done at the altar but we can do it any location you’d like. Also, have one person from each side of the family that is really organized (and loud) to move people in and out of photo’s.

 

Bridal Party (Optional) – Duration: 0.5 hour to 1 hour

This is where we take the bridal party out for some fun shots. This is also nice to handle before the ceremony so that you can rest and enjoy your day afterwards.

 

Thank you for reaching out!
