Most asked Questions...
Color or BW? - Our photographs are all digital so we can do both color and black and white. Color photographs are great for eye catching details, and black and white photographs really highlight the emotion of a photo.
Candid or traditional - We specialize in candid photos because we want to make sure we capture the wedding as it's happening, that way you get real emotions and moments. In fact a lot of the time we hear that the best photos are ones where they didn't even realize we were there, but were so happy the moment was caught! So if candid photos are what you're looking for on your wedding day make sure you see those types of photos in your photographer's portfolio before hiring them.
Lots of formal portraits - We always recommend taking as few formal portraits as possible, nobody likes waiting around for photos and honestly those huge family shots rarely make it into albums or are purchased. However if those shots are an absolute must work with your photographer before the wedding day to plan out the groupings and make sure family members are informed about where they need to be. You should also consider doing the formals before the ceremony instead of after to cut down on wait time for your guests. It's a non traditional approach, but you can have your photographer arrange a "first glance" so you and your groom will still have that precious moment of seeing each other for the first time that day.
Bridal shoot - We work with our brides to select a location for their bridal session that reflects the style they are going for on their wedding day. Sessions don't just have to be in gardens these days, a lot of brides are opting for more unique locations like boutique hotels, warehouses, homes of family and friends, or urban downtown areas. Bridal shoots don't have to be limited to before the wedding either, have a "Trash the Dress" session after the wedding day for a fun, adventurous session where you don't have to worry about getting your dress dirty!
