frequently asked questions

+ Are you avaiable for travel?

We love to travel for weddings & shoots, and always have our passports ready to get us anywhere in the world to capture your special day! We make every effort to keep travel fees as low as possible in order to make it more affordable to have us there with you.

+ Can we create a custom collection?

Of course! Our collections are put together based on popular demand, but we are more than happy to create something unique for you based on your needs.

+ How do we book our date?

A $1000 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your date, along with a signed contract. The remaining blance is due 30 days before your event.

+ What is your approach & shooting style on the wedding day?

A wedding day is naturally compiled of different situations that call for different approaches and styles of photography (ie. styled details= editorial approach | portraits & family photos= portraiture approach | preparation, first looks, ceremony= photo-journalistic approach). Some situations call for us to be more intentional, inserting ourselves through guided positionings and other situations call for us to be unobtrusive, letting the “moments” happen naturally. In any given photo opportunity, our goal is to craft and document the most authentic & effortless imagery while capturing all of the intimate emotional moments without intrusion.

+ Will there be a second shooter at our wedding?

Yes! We are a husband and wife team and always shoot our weddings together. We think having a second shooter at your wedding is vital to capturing many of the candid moments throughout the day.

+ Do you shoot film or digital? Why?

We incorporate both mediums into the flow of every wedding. Film is my specialty and it’s how I fell in love with photography as an artist. The way it forces me to slow down, anticipating moments as they happen, creates this nostalgic approach to how I see and document the story. Film is incomparable to the way it renders natural light and skin tones. Throughout the night, digital is incorporated into our workflow when the sun has gone down and is used to capture the super fast movements throughout the night. No matter what medium we choose to utilize, our approach is always the same.

+ How many photos will we receive?

It’s all about quality over quantity here. We focus on creating authentic imagery to tell a cohesive story, rather than giving you 1000 images of the same pose. We carefully curate your gallery to eliminate unflattering shots (blinks, etc.) so that you only receive the best and brightest moments from your day! There are many depending factors throughout each wedding like amount of hours, details, wedding party size, etc. You can expect 60-80 final images per hour of wedding coverage. Every single photo that we deliver will be edited to perfection and ready to print and share!

+ How long do we patiently to receive our images?

A typical turnaround is 6-8 weeks after your wedding day to receive your USB. Your online gallery will be available within 2 days of you receiving your USB to view and share with family and friends (they can also order professional prints here). We strive to give our clients the fastest turnaround possible, one that we promise is worth the wait! Portrait sessions typically take 4-6 weeks to turnaround.

+ How do I print my photos?

We believe strongly in the power of the tangible print. We highly recommend you print through us as the quality and color retention achieved by a pro lab (accessible only to photographers) far exceeds that of a local drugstore, Walmart, etc. You will receive a link to our online print ordering soon after you receive you wedding images from us. Ordering through there is very simple and it is also a great way to share all the images from your special day with your family and friends. If you do decide to print your photos yourself, we recommend using Artifact Uprising for products like photo books, calendars, etc. and for basic prints.
