Below you’ll find questions that we’ve been asked over the years, and our hope is that you know that you can ask us anything. We’re here to make this process seamless, easy, and one in which you find unending confidence. And as we go into our last year of shooting weddings, these questions still ring true in how we work, what our process is like, and what you can expect.
We will talk, handle some logistics, and then schedule a day for your engagement session. We can go one of two ways with the engagement session: comfort or adventure, either one we're 100% up for. For adventures, we'll hop in the car and drive somewhere amazing, essentially a day trip. For those who are looking to be a little close to home; we build a day shooting around what means the most to you, in your home, at your favorite coffee shop, or even the park where he proposed. We'll eat delicious food, drink good coffee (I have a knack for finding the best stuff), have some amazing inside jokes and laughter, and create something beautiful. If you're out of state then we'll come to you and we can go on an adventure near you. From there, we'll be in some pretty regular communication (because we care about each decision you make for your wedding and want to celebrate with you), we'll shoot your wedding, and have a blast through all of it.
In life, yes. 100%. We believe we're doing this life together which means that we include each other in all aspects of our individual life to make our married life that much better. This business is now an evolution of what I, Brian, started nearly a decade ago. Hannah comes alongside you, makes you feel comfortable, has a camera in hand around 65-75% of the time (especially for the important stuff), and the rest she's catering to you to make sure that you've got everything you need. She's become vital to this process and has brought in something beautiful to this business, so much so that I didn't want to do any of this alone anymore.
Yes. 100% yes. We love to travel and be brought into people's environments to feel what they feel and see what they see. If you're interested in travel, let us know in the contact form and we'll figure out the details together.
We've tried our best to create as comfortable of an environment as possible. We laugh, make jokes (especially "that's what she said" jokes), play games, and keep things casual. We'll ask you both questions, get you to relive the best moments of your relationship, and encourage you to let your guard down and just be yourselves. This is how we create something that's yours. Afterwards, we'll grab some food (usually pizza or burgers), and end the night with some kind of dessert. Truly, we have the best time.
Engagement and lifestyle sessions are 2 weeks and weddings are 4 weeks. This is year round, busy season or not. I do my best to make sure that all your images are cared for, edited well for the basics (coloring and exposure), without changing a single bit of who you are as a person.
Yes, and yes. We proudly tell the stories of the people who we welcome into our business and love being able to bridge the gap of those who were dancing with you on as you celebrate, but also those loved ones and friends who couldn't make it. Also, and to be super transparent, this is how our business continues to grow and more and more people see what we create together. If you'd like to keep your images private, a $5500 loss of revenue charge will be added to your wedding package to ensure your privacy.
Celebrations and dancing go hand in hand, so you better believe it. How many times can we say "absolutely"?
Great question! It varies because each story is unique. Normally engagement sessions can expect 150-250 images and weddings can expect between 600-900 depending on the amount of hours purchased. We try our best to be selective but also allow wiggle room for ones that matter regardless of if they're perfect or not.
Engagement and anniversary sessions are indeed included for free in each package that we offer. To us, they're essential to you getting the most out of this journey. You're letting us in and letting us see these unique chapters in such an intimate way. Plus, your engagement session gives a real idea of what it's like to shoot with us (which is great before your wedding) and on your anniversary session we will relive your wedding day and share stories of how the first year of marriage was and continues to be. With that being said, these sessions are a gift to you from us and do not hold any monetary value in the cost itself, therefore they are non-transferrable or able to exchange for another a-la-carte option.
Of course! We love it when people come to us with unique experiences for their invited guests, especially if they're weekend affairs with so many things to do for everyone. If you're interested in a custom weekend package, drop a note in the contact form and we'll create something that works. All custom packages will be built on a 9 hour wedding day package.
We're extremely relational, and we love building deep and rooted friendships with our clients. This makes this entire process rich, life giving, intentional, and also amazingly fun. Because of that, we shoot 15-16 weddings per year and take on 2-3 per month.
On average, we are booked around 10-14 months from the wedding date. If you feel like we'd fit, don't hesitate!
