To make planning a little easier, we have compiled a list of FAQ’s. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or for more information.
Yes, absolutely. We show individual wedding portfolios with the work of each of our wedding photographers and give you the opportunity to select your favorite. If you decide to add a second photographer, you will be able to select that photographer as well. There are no “main” or “secondary” photographers so when you hire 2 photographers you get two primary photographers. This is not the case with most studios who bring a second photographer with less experience. All of our photographers are equally skilled and will work as a team to ensure that your wedding day coverage will be complete. Encouraging you to select who you want to work with will provide peace of mind in knowing exactly who your photographer (s) will be. We believe that this approach is far better than having a studio assign a random photographer to you.
Again, absolutely. We are so confident you’ll love our photographers we give you the opportunity to meet them.
Yes. Complete weddings by each of our photographers can be seen here and more when we meet. We show the full wedding in order to provide a sense of how each of our photographers tells a complete story. We show images specifically from the photographer who will be documenting your wedding, and emphasize that it’s very important to see the work of the photographer you will be hiring rather than the studio’s general portfolio.
No. Each photographer does one wedding per day. Once you reserve your photographer, we block off the whole day just for you.
All images are captured in RAW format, producing more vibrant colors and superior print quality. We process each image to color-correct and provide touch-up when necessary. The digital negatives (high resolution images) with full rights we deliver to you will be a mix of color, black & white, sepia, color enhancements, and alternative processes.
Many studios shoot in JPEG format because it’s easier and there’s less post production work for them. The images come straight out of the camera “as-is”. Then it becomes your responsibility to color correct the images. Also, JPEG’s don’t have nearly as much information in the digital file which means you can’t make large prints and lose the beautiful rich colors you want.
Yes. We go through each image to color correct and touch up when necessary. We believe your images deserve the extra work.
We don’t limit the number of exposures we take. On average we take approximately 2,000 images.
To reserve your selected photographer we require a signed contract and a deposit by check or credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover).
Our whole process is designed to make sure the planning of your wedding is as stress-free as possible. Two months before the wedding, you’ll receive an wedding questionnaire to give us additional details about your day. A few weeks before the wedding, your photographer will call you to go over the details and to make sure we have all the information we need.
Unlike most solo photographers, we have an extensive back up system in place to assure that an emergency doesn’t ruin your wedding. Because there are 8 of us, you can be assured that your wedding will be covered if your chosen photographer becomes severally ill or is in an accident. In addition to the photographers within the studio, we also have an extensive back up list of great photographers we know and respect in the area. We have staff on call for wedding days who will have your wedding information as well as all relevant contact information. You will be given their contact information before the wedding in case of an emergency. I am very happy to say that in 15 years we have never missed a wedding.
