What sets you a part from other photographers?
We take all our photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as much as possible. With games and other fun photo prompts, we want authenticity to shine through the camera so sessions are candid and fun. I also have a background in wedding planning and coordinating so planning things such as perfect timelines and communicating with your other vendors is important to a smooth running day, and I take care of all of that.
I also only take on one wedding per weekend. This allows me to give you my undivided attention and energy the day of your wedding. No exhaustion or confusion from a wedding the day before. Your wedding is all about you two and I want you both to feel like you are getting the absolute best in the industry.
Why do we need a 2nd shooter?
All packages come with two photographers. This is so there is never a moment missed. My 2nd shooters are all professional photographers who either have their own photography business or have gone through extensive training before being hired. Having two photographers allows us to get more photos and more moments without having to take up lots of time at the wedding. We get the groom smiling as his bride walks down the aisle and the dads tears as he gives his daughter away. We want you to be well served.
When would we have to pay a traveling fee?
Traveling fees are included in the pricing and packages and cover travel from Loveland, Denver, Estes Park and all of Northern Colorado. Destination weddings, even areas like Southern Colorado or Western Colorado are minimal.
Out of state weddings and out of country weddings are custom built packages. We have a bucket list of places we want to capture, so are always willing to strike a deal if the location is right.
Do we have to order prints through you?
We highly recommend ordering prints through our professional vendors, but it is not required at all. The difference In quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so we encourage clients to help with prints.
How to we reserve our wedding date?
After a consultation, we hold your date for one week giving you a chance to think through every thing. Then, a 30% retainer fee is due to fully secure your wedding date a long with a contract signing.
Do we get the release to print images after our wedding?
Upon receiving all of your images both engagement and wedding, you get the self printing and social media rights to all your images. This gives you the opportunity to print and share all your images without having to go through me. Hooray!
What kind of equipment do you use?
We use all the latest Canon equipment. We always carry of the two 5D Mark III camera bodies. 50 mm f/1.2 lenses, 35mm f/1.4 and 70-200mm f/2.8 Among other lenses. We also have flash gear for all circumstances. We use Lightroom and Photoshop to edit all our images cohesively, as well as deliver on the beautiful online galleries of PASS.
What if we don’t want an engagement session?
Engagement sessions are a great way for you to get to know my shooting style and really helps couples feel comfortable in front of the camera for their wedding day. So I highly encourage an engagement session. However if you are out of state or have decided you really don’t desire one, you can trade engagement sessions for an extra hour at the wedding (up to the 8 hour package) or a discount of $250.00 off your wedding package.
