I live to see the authenticity in others through an uncontrollable laugh or a good, honest cry. I'm a lover of deep talks that last all night. I have a constant need for exploration and strongly believe that we were not put on this earth to stay in one place forever. Everyone has a story to tell and I feel that one of the biggest gifts you can offer to someone is to listen.
Through my work, I like to say that I am a listener as opposed to a story-teller. I pride myself in knowing that the quiet, cozy moments are just as important as the crazy, free-spirited love you and your partner share together - and I will be there to listen to the range of those emotions on your wedding day as a chapter in your story unfolds, documenting them uniquely as they are.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCAL TO?
We reside in San Diego, CA, but are traveling frequently throughout 2017. Feel free to shoot us an email if you're interested in meeting up!
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR COLLECTIONS?
We are stoked to offer custom wooden USB drives and boxes along with an online gallery of your images, a link to share with friends & family on social media, high resolution digital downloads, and a print release. A complimentary engagement session is included with all collections. We also offer wedding albums and archival prints.
DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS WITH YOUR COLLECTIONS?
All collections include a complimentary engagement session. A la carte engagement sessions without a collection are $350.
How many photographers will there be at my wedding?
Any wedding collection that you choose includes two photographers. You can rest assured knowing your wedding day will be thoroughly documented.
CAN WE PROVIDE YOU WITH A SHOT LIST?
Although we take lists for family photos, we cannot take shot lists for photos desired throughout the day. It is our job to document all of the incredible, authentic moments that happen throughout your wedding day and crossing off photo ideas from a shot list distracts us from catching moments that happen naturally right before our very eyes. When chatting before your wedding day, we do ask you if there will be any special surprises, family heirlooms, or unique traditions that we should know about so that capturing those are a priority!
DO YOU TAKE FAMILY FORMALS?
We sure do! Prior to your wedding day, we will create a shot list together for groupings of any family formal photos you would like.
when will we receive our wedding photos?
You'll receive your online gallery within 8 weeks after your wedding date.
WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT DO YOU REQUIRE TO RESERVE OUR DATE?
We require a 50% retainer to reserve your wedding date with us. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the event. We also offer monthly payment options for your convenience.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUPS?
We always have backup gear on us & get your images backed up immediately after your wedding.
CAN WE PRINT OUR WEDDING PHOTOS OURSELVES?
Yes! You receive the right to print your photos, as you wish, for personal use only. This just means you cannot profit from them without our permission. There is also an option to purchase professional prints through the gallery to make it more convenient for yourself, friends, and family.
WILL THERE BE A TRAVEL FEE FOR MY WEDDING?
We do charge a travel fee for weddings more than two hours from Rockford, Illinois, but we are always determined in finding the best travel arrangements possible. If traveling by car, we charged a flat rate fee of $300 to cover transportation & hotel accommodations.
ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL ANYWHERE?
Yes. Except for the moon. Unless, of course, you've gotten in touch with NASA - then we're all game. We both have our passports and are ready to travel anywhere in the world to be there on your special day. We offer custom pricing for domestic & international elopements & destination weddings.
