Below are some of the questions we get asked most commonly. If you don’t see the answer to your question here, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We are always here to help!
So many reasons! But primarily because we think it is such an important and special job to have. We love getting to be present at such an integral part of your lives and stories. It’s truly something very special.
Yes, we have been married for nearly ten years and have been photographing weddings together for seven and a half of them. We love being a team in our lives together as well as on a wedding day. We also find that it is always wonderful to have two photographers at a wedding–that way our clients are getting two uniquely beautiful perspectives on their day.
We live and work predominately in Portland, OR and surrounding areas, but we frequently take trips to Idaho, different parts of Oregon, and Washington, so we do take weddings in those states at no extra travel cost.
I’m always happy to travel nationally and internationally. Depending on the location, a travel fee may be charged. Please contact us to see if we’re a good fit.
Absolutely. You’re totally not alone–most people don’t love having their photos taken, but we’ve got you covered! Our goal is to make you look your best for photos and to make our time together fun and enjoyable.
Definitely. In fact, we always do! And, if you don’t see what you want in the packages we send you we are always happy to further customize them!
Generally you can expect to receive 75-100 images per hour of coverage on you wedding day. In the case of a 60 to 90 minute portrait sessions (maternity and couples) I will deliver at least 75 images to you.
Yes, all of the photos I deliver to you will be in high-resolution JPEG format. They will be artistically and stylistically edited for color and mood. Retouching (teeth-whitening, airbrushing, shrinking, etc.) will only take place on prints and photos you decide to order though me or if you pay me to Photoshop them. Don’t worry though–if you wake up with a pimple, I will absolutely remove it for you.
I had such a hard time waiting to receive my wedding photos that I deliver your photos as quickly as I can without sacrificing the quality of the edit. That said, I will take no longer than four weeks with your images.
You will be receiving your images via online downloadable gallery. There will be no watermarks or logos on your final images, so that you can print and share them with ease!
Yes. While we do include all of your edited high-resolution images in every package, we are also happy to print and create tactile prints for you. We believe it is important to walk away with something that shows off your images in a beautiful way which is why our top packages include prints/albums. Please don’t be like us and wait three years to print your photos! Your photos deserve to be displayed in the real world as the art work they were meant to be.
Maybe! Just ask and we’ll see! But, honestly, regardless of whether I have or haven’t, every wedding day is different, and light is always changing, so no wedding day looks the same. Good news though, you’re hiring professionals, and we will be sure to show up a early to scout out the light at your location before your coverage starts.
