We would define our style as a flexible-photojournalistic style. Or as I like to say a mix of several styles. This means that we try to tell the story of your day: from the getting ready, through the stages of the ceremony, to the reception and the dancing. We also love to take some extra photos of the bride and groom together outside the church. We do both intimate portraits and also environmental portraits (the two of you with emphasis on the location). But never fear: we always include posed family portraits at the altar that the parents always want! This style is especially suited for albums.
We also strive to capture and edit our photos with a timeless quality to them. We do our best to give you beautiful photos with soft, natural looking light that will be keepsakes for generations. We don’t over process them or take overly trendy photos.
We have been in business for 16+ years. Shooting everything from Children, and Newborns and every other kind of photography until Weddings just kind of fell into our lap 13 years ago and we fell in love with it. We feel as though 16 years of photography experience and all the continuing education we pursue are a great mix and you can trust your wedding will be captured in a beautiful way.
Some photographers are very rigid on the way they will photograph your wedding. We take a different approach. We always discuss what is most important to you before your wedding then we do our best to capture your event the way you desire. We also want your input at the wedding, some of our favorite shots have come as a bride & groom idea!
You can definitely get great photos from one photographer, but they can only capture so much and be in one place at a time. This is why we are a twosome and with all of our packages you get the both of us!
If your photographer doesn’t have liability insurance, they are putting risk on you, your guests, the venue, and their entire business every time they shoot. This is another clear indicator on how serious they are about their business. Many venues will not even allow a photographer without proof of liability insurance it’s that important. This is a non-negotiable in our opinion and this is why we carry it.
It is critical to be prepared for all kinds of possible equipment failures at a wedding. There are no second chances, and having a camera malfunction should never stop wedding coverage. Make sure your photographer has a separate set of cameras and lenses to get through the day if their primary equipment fails. We always have backup equipment, and in a lot of cases we have backups for our backups!
Weddings often run long; we plan for it and always go over the details in our contracts. We never leave without asking you first if you would like us to stay longer, and the reasonable rates for extended coverage are already agreed upon before the wedding so you know what it would cost should you want us to stick around longer than planned.
People skills are critical for a photographer; they must be able to direct a group, and command attention if needed. They need to be polite, friendly and pleasant to be around. For our business my husband and I make a great team. We find it invaluable to have the two of us to direct and assist as the rush of the posed group photos unfold.
With two of us we don’t often have to yell to get the attention of the wayward ring bearer or groomsman. I usually focus on the bride and groom and can usually find my husband making sure the family and guests are getting our attention as well.
Many photographers will make you sign in your contract that your guests will not be taking photos as they can interfere with the main photographer(s). We have no problem with friends and family taking photos, as long as they are not in the way. (If they are we kindly let them know).
If we have time during the posed shots, we usually take our photo and then let others step in to get their snapshot as well. This way everyone knows to look at the professional photographer first, and then others will get their turn.
This is especially important if you have a special religious or cultural ceremony where a photographer who has experienced one before will be better able to capture the significance of the event. For instance, we do a lot of Catholic weddings and we have lots of experience with them, and are familiar with many of the churches in the area as well as the customs of the Catholic Church.
We also have done many outdoor weddings, barn weddings, and everything in between, so we feel confident in saying that we most likely have photographed a wedding that resembles yours.
In the digital age, it is now very common for couples to want digital high-resolution copies of their photos. We include a custom flash drive with all of your digital files with all of our packages. We recommend to all of our clients to print their photos, even if just a 4x6 of each, PRINT PLEASE!
There are different factors that would lead to a discount. Here in California there is really not an off season as it seams weddings take place all year long, however we would consider a discount for Friday or Sunday weddings.
We do not require a meal at your wedding. We of course appreciate it if you do provide one.
We require a retainer-booking fee of one third (33%) to book your wedding with us. The balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding date in full.
You can also split the final balance in to two payments or a monthly payment. We are flexible and can work that out with you.
