Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

ANSWER

What's included in your photography packages?

We shoot continuously for almost 100% of a wedding day. Every one of our investment options includes our specific style, experience, and storytelling abilities. After shooting, you will receive all digital files on an online gallery for viewing, sharing, downloading, and printing. You get the printing rights and can download every photo to print and share with your friends and family!

My fiancé doesn't like getting their picture taken, is that okay?

We get this question ever. single. time. we speak with one of our brides! YES - that is okay, and honestly - it's normal! We don't expect you two to be models, and we totally get being nervous in front of the camera.
We’re not about awkward posing, we’re about you and your love. Exactly as you are. Your time with us will be relaxed and fun – we’ll laugh, talk about the things we love, and by the time we’re done, we promise you won’t want it to end!

Have you ever shot at our venue before? Does that make a difference?

While it certainly doesn't hurt to have photographed at your venue previously, we are confident that we can deliver our best work at your venue either way! Lighting & location is our expertise, so you are in good hands! We always arrive 30-60 minutes beforehand on your wedding day to scout the grounds. Different seasons bring different light, and lighting changes day-to-day!

Do you travel?

Yes! We've photographed & filmed weddings all around the US and even out of the country. We're always down to go on an adventure, especially when it's meaningful to you. Some of my favorite places we've photographed are Cancun, Hawaii, New York City, and Savannah, GA!

Do you have a second shooter for weddings?

For photo and video - Yes! Most of the time it's Haley or one of my good friends! I'm deeply connected with the photography community in the area. We can always make sure to have a second shooter available and deliver what you want and deserve.
