Q.Why do you love shooting weddings?
Everyone who you've ever loved and cared about is at this thing! This will probably never happen again in your lifetime and that alone makes weddings pretty darn special! Personal vows, thoughtful touches, little bits of you are all over your wedding. No two weddings are the same!We really enjoy getting to know each couple and it feels a lot more like shooting a friend's wedding than just some client. In fact, don't even like the word client (or vendor), it's impersonal. There is something so satisfying about capturing a moment that you know someone will hold dear for years to come.
Q.Do you travel?
YES please! Feel free to send us more specific information on your location for more in-depth travel costs. We love exploring new places.
Q.When can we expect to see our wedding photos?
Anywhere between 6 and 12 weeks depending on what season your wedding is in. Right after the big day or session Keep an eye out on Instagram for sneak peeks! If you need a photo or two early for “thank you” cards or something along those lines we have no problem sending a few favourites.
Q.How will we receive our images?
We deliver all of our work via online gallery. The images are high resolution and available for you to download, make favourites lists, share and order any of the professional product we offer, including fine art albums.
Q.Who chooses our wedding portrait locations?
For engagement and portrait sessions we’ll work with you on selecting the locations because we want to take advantage of the freedom we have, unlike the wedding day when we have timeline constraints. These locations should reflect you! Think of your favourite date spot.
For weddings, we do! We location scout for all of our weddings with the specific details of your day in mind. Timeline, weather and light all play a factor and although we are open to your suggestions we ultimately pick the perfect places for your pics. We always base these locations on the type of location you desire whether that’s city, forest, beach etc.
Q.Why do we need an engagement session?
The truth is technically you don’t BUT we believe that along with being a lovely time capsule they are beneficial to both of us. Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get better acquainted before your big day! No one wants a couple of strangers following them around with 4 cameras on their wedding day. You can get used to being in front of the camera and we can see how best to bring out the most natural version of you. They are a great way to celebrate and capture the way you are together without the location and time constraints of a wedding day. Think of it more as a heavily documented date.
Q.We are not used to being in front of a camera!
Don't you even worry about it! Nearly everyone we’ve ever photographed expresses this to us. This is why we include complimentary engagement sessions in nearly all packages. It's our chance to get to know each other and for you to feel comfortable. We’ll get you moving, talking and interacting so the images feel natural. We work with your comfort level with the goal to increase it! We promise to direct you well and be clear with what we want from you. We won't start the session right up in your face but by the end of it you'll be totally used to us. A couple of seasoned pros.
Q.Do you offer wedding albums?
Yes! We believe in printing your images. Wedding albums are a stunning archive that you can leave for the kids of your great grandkids to pour over. Plus they look awesome on the coffee table!
Q.How many images from our wedding can we expect to receive?
A whole lot! That being said we believe in quality over quantity and carefully take time selecting and editing the best images of the day. For a full wedding day ranging from 6-12 hours we deliver between 500 and 1200 images depending on the length of time you had us there shooting. On average 75-100 images per hour that we are with you.
Q.Do you backup your images?
Oh yeah! As soon as we get home from your wedding or photo session, no matter how late, all images are uploaded and then immediately backed-up to a second location. There's no messin' around with backups! We also have a backup system in place for completed galleries. BUT PLEASE be diligent in saving and backing up your photos once they come your way.
Q.Has your work been published anywhere?
Sure has! For weddings we've been published in Junebug Weddings, Style Me Pretty, The Refinery Magazine, Vancouver Bride, Hey Wedding Lady and 100 Layer Cake. For family sessions we’ve been published in 100 Layer Cakelet
