Information + Investment
Your photos and film should show how it felt to be at your wedding rather than just what it looked like.
Let's create real moments not posed ones.
We believe that trust is one of the most important things in any relationship but especially when it comes to your photographer or cinematographer. When you feel comfortable and trust with the people capturing your day the more at ease you will be and the more genuine your photos and film will be.
Being in front of a camera for the first time can seem daunting and being “natural” is easier said than done. Our main goal during portraits is to make you as comfortable as possible. We don’t expect you to get in front of the camera and become models, and honestly we love when our couples tell us they are “awkward” in front of the camera, because we get to prove them wrong.We direct and guide you the entire time so that you naturally move into a pose instead of just being placed in one. Which will result in truly genuine images + film.
Photography and Cinematography packages start at $4000 each for local coverage. Destination coverage available as well. We would love to chat with you more about your wedding and create a package that fits your needs, email us for more detailed pricing!
We do offer a discount if booking both photo and cinema together.
Q: Do I need two cinematographers?
A: It truly depends on the timeline of your day, we are happy to chat and make you a timeline to see if you'll need two. Typically we like to stick to one if possible!
Q: Who picks the highlight film song?
A: We license the music we use for the film to avoid any copyright
issues.The songs we find are usually by artist you have not heard of before, which is really cool because it's not a song you've heard a million times on the radio or one that you have a memory tied to already. This
allows you to focus more on the moments on screen than the music
Q: How long does it take to edit the highlight film?
A: Turnaround time is about 4 months. Since we film parts of your day on super 8mm film, we have to send that to be developed and scanned before we can start editing!
Q: Can we add documentary edits after the
wedding if we change our minds?
A: Absolutely you can! A lot of couples choose to
go this way, we film the day in its entirety for
this reason exactly!
Q: Do you include vows or toasts in the highlight film?
A: Typically we don't, Our style is a fast paced, fun, easy to watch overview of your day, and vows and toasts usually just don't blend well. If you are interested in having them included in the highlight film we can chat about it! Keep in mind with the documentary edits you will have all the sound from the day!
Q: How many photos can we expect from an 8 hour day?
A: The average is about 700 images. Some receive more depending on how much of the 8hours is spent on portraits.
Q: Do we get the print rights to the images?
A: You sure do! You'll be able to download
the photos from your online gallery(which is ready
2 weeks after your wedding) and will be able to
make prints wherever you'd like.
Q: Can we purchase an album after the wedding?
A: Yep! You'll be able to purchase an album up to a year
after the wedding on your online gallery!
Q: Are all the images edited?
A: Yes, every image we deliver to you
will be edited with in our style.
Q: We love the candid style, but will you also take family portraits?
A: 100% YES! Although we don't show much of family portraits on the site this is something that is so important. We spend about 10 -15 minutes on family portraits, this way your family can go enjoy most of cocktail hour!
