For locations within California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, there are no additional travel fees. Our destination weddings include early arrival and pre-production location scouting.
e are west coast based wedding photographers available worldwide for destination weddings.
There is no fine print behind our photography sessions or wedding packages and full resolution unwatermarked digital files are always included. We also don’t believe in high pressure sales or any hidden fees. We work with amazing clients who trust us to do what we do best.
rom the start, our business philosophy has always been about being transparent, honest, and ethical.
We like to let moments unfold naturally and capture them as they are, in their most candid form. At times we will offer photographic insight such as the best locations for lighting, or we will offer to style certain scenes such as the wedding details e.g. dress, bouquet, shoes, invitations, wedding rings. Even during the bride and groom couples photos, we aim to make sessions fun and relaxed to produce photos that look natural and candid and not overly posed. We’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with so many clients who share our vision and photographic voice.
ur approach to wedding photography is best described by photojournalism meets lifestyle.
For all of our wedding collections, we arrive early for location scouting (for worldwide destination weddings, this typically means we’ll fly in at least one to two days early or more). If you have a professional wedding planner or other creative team members, we will collaborate with them and help with timeline planning and review, questionnaire review, and family shot planning and review. Our equipment camera package as well as backup equipment package includes professional grade Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR cameras, Canon L and Sigma ART Lenses, Canon 600EX-RT Speedlites. Photographs are immediately backed up in real-time via dual memory card slots in the cameras we use and further backed up via external hard drives and online cloud backup after the event. We are also a fully licensed and insured business and can provide proof of Business General Liability Insurance for venues that require it.
eddings are an immense production, and because they happen only once, we take great care in the way we handle photographing the event.
Coverage – For 8, 9, and 10 hour coverage, we can work with your timeline to ensure all of the important parts of the day will be photographed: prep, ceremony, group photos, bride and groom photos, reception, grand exit. The amount of images you’ll receive is highly dependent on your unique wedding plans and event length, but we typically deliver over 60+ photos per hour coverage. All photos are edited and
color graded to match our signature style.
2 Photographers – The additional photographer will provide double the coverage during certain parts of the day, and also offer unique angles and perspectives. Typically it allows one photographer to obtain the shots you need, while the other photographer can take the shots you want – the creative shots that are riskier or take more time for the photographer to set up. During certain parts of the day, the second photographer will also serve as a general assistant, lighting assistant, stylist, and also perform behind-the-scenes work.
Full-Resolution Digital Files – All of our sessions and wedding collections include full-resolution, unwatermarked digital files. The photos are yours to post online, print, and share freely. For clients who prefer professional printing options, we are partnered with Miller’s Professional Imaging to provide rich prints that are accurate in exposure, color, tone, and contrast.
Online Gallery and Downloads – A custom online gallery will be created to display your photographs and allow downloading of the full-resolution files. You can send the online gallery to friends and family, making it easy for you to share the photographs with loved ones.
USB Drive and Case – Our USB drive will come pre-loaded with all of your full resolution photographs and will be personally packaged and shipped from us to you. A beautiful case is also included with every USB drive.
Engagement Session – Our engagement sessions are untimed and unrushed, and typically run about 1 to 1.5 hours. We allow for props, 1 to 2 outfits, and 1 to 2 locations. You’ll receive roughly 50-60+ fully edited images and an online gallery where you can view, share, and download the full-resolution files. Destination engagement sessions are also available for couples who love travel and adventure as much as we do.
Our post production also includes culling, exposure corrections, color corrections, and color grading on the entire collection. High end skin retouching is included on select close-up photos. Black and white processing is included on select highlights. Turnaround for engagement sessions is roughly 3 weeks while turnaround for wedding collections is roughly 4-6 weeks (sooner if we are able to). Having this time allows us to provide un-rushed post-processing and editing.
our photographs are as important to us as they are to you, and as such, our post production includes immediate transferring of files, a secondary external backup of files, as well as a third online backup of files to cloud storage.
We’ll then send you an online invoice for the booking retainer, which once paid, you’ll be officially booked. We will then ask you to complete a questionnaire so that we can get the details on your wedding plans. As your date draws near, we’ll check in with you periodically as well as work with you on your timeline, wedding details, and family shot list.
fter we get to know each other in person or over Skype, we’ll move forward with the booking process by sending you an online contract with a finalized proposal for you and your fiance to review and e-sign.
We look forward to meeting with you and having the honor of capturing one of the biggest days in your life in timeless imagery. If you’ve made it this far, we know photography is as important to you as it is to us, and we can’t wait to talk to you about your wedding plans.
f you have any questions, call, email, text us anytime. We love talking photography, and we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have, so please don’t hesitate.
