What is it like working with us?
All weddings are unique. From an eight person treehouse ceremony overlooking a Scottish loch to an epic three day
Indian wedding celebration, everyone wants something different. Let us help you have a fun, stress free celebration that is uniquely you.

Leading up to the big day:
We’ll start with a client meeting to connect, get to know each other, and paint the vision of your day.
We accept about 25 weddings out of 200 inquiries per year, so we send proposals to couples with the best fit.
From start to finish, we try to make everything as easy as can be. Sign your contract and send your retainer online.
Every client gets a unique style profile tailored just for you so that we can calibrate our eye with what you find beautiful.
Once you’re locked in, let’s have an adventure. Come get to know me and learn how to be camera ready with an engagement session.
We’re not just taking pictures in front of a pretty bush. The sky is the limit, so let’s do something that celebrates this amazing life!
We want to get to know you so that on the wedding day, we’re someone you trust and don’t mind crying (or crunking) in front of.
The Wedding Day
We’re not a fan of cheese (unless you can cut it) and we LOVE real moments, so we try not to pose too much.
We may suggest moving to better light, or a prettier space, but we like things to happen naturally.
We arrive and start by capturing quiet, storytelling moments — the sky, the leaves, preparation and details.
We like to stay the whole day, starting an hour or two before you put your clothes on.
Most couples do photos before the ceremony to get formalities out of the way. It’s the BEST way to make sure your day is smooth and stress-free. In this
time period, we do bridal party shots, – some looking at the camera, and some interacting. Following that, traditional and timeless family shots. Any photos
we didn’t get done before the ceremony happen before or around the beginning of the reception.
Couple photos take 20-45 minutes. Some are camera aware, some are art, and many are just interaction with each other. You may not get much more
alone time the rest of the day, so this is time to breathe, laugh at the world, and cuddle. Every couple responds differently to different direction and
levels of intimacy. We will work together on your day (or better, at the engagement session) to determine what is right for you.
“COURAGE, DEAR HEART”
The Rest of the Day:
At the ceremony, we are ninjas. We are quiet and out of the way, and capture moments and emotions as they happen. After the ceremony and into the
reception, we mingle and dance like guests to capture the spirit of the event. We prefer to eat a hot meal when you do, since photos of guests chewing haven’t
been in vogue since at least the 1930s. And we’ll be on the dance floor when that groomsman rips his pants doing the splits on the dance floor.
Photos are all edited and delivered within 90 days, and six weeks on average. About 20% are in black and white.
The process of albums happens after the photos are delivered.
You pick your cover options and favorite images (with a list of suggestions from us) and we’ll craft the story.
Albums usually take 2-6 months depending on how quickly we communicate and exchange drafts.
