Everything you need to know about working with us
We've been photographing weddings for 8 years and we absolutely love them. Getting to work with happy, in-love couples is our jam. In addition to all of the lovely details and beautiful scenery, let's capture how it felt on your wedding day.
We create space for genuine moments to happen.
We're not into posed "pinterest" shots. Beyond that, we aim to photograph your day artistically with an emphasis on connection and genuine emotion. We'll give direction and ask loads of questions to get you talking about your love and life. Your natural responses are what we're after. We're always looking for the "outtakes" or in-between moments.
Let's embrace the perfectly imperfect. Windblown hair. Your dress getting a little dirty. All of it.
All of our wedding collections include two photographers documenting your day, a sleek online gallery of the edited images for sharing with your family + friends, a download of of all high-resolution images, and printing rights to your images so you can make prints anywhere you please.
Not local to us? Don't fret! If you haven't noticed, we like to travel. We've got a customized package that includes travel and added wedding coverage, so it's a win-win for everyone.
We offer simple packages for elopement, wedding & destination weddings – all of which are customizable. We also offer beautiful albums, engagement and couples sessions, and lots of other goodies. Reach out via our contact page and we'll send you all the details.

DO YOU NEED A SHOT LIST?
We will discuss a shot list for your family portraits, but beyond that, we will photograph the look and feel of your day as we see it. Don’t worry, we got you.

We limit bookings to 25 weddings per year. Send us a message today to ensure your wedding date.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU DELIVER?
We’re firm believers in quality > quantity, but in general, you can expect a minimum of 40 edited images per session and 400 per wedding.
WHAT PERCENTAGE OF IMAGES ARE DELIVERED IN COLOR VS. B&W?
In general, we will deliver about 70% of your images in color, with the remaining 30% in black & white. The decision to apply a B&W treatment to an image is based upon our artistic eye making the image more interesting or in response to various lighting situations.
