WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
We specialize in destination luxury weddings with a fine-art approach, and we rely on natural light for a very ethereal feel. Clients describe our photography as timeless, classic, genuine, and natural. Bride & groom portraits are our fave and so are details - so we tend to focus heavily on those.
HOW DO ALL YOUR COUPLES LOOK SO NATURAL?
No - we’re not into "posing" you, but we will help direct you into poses that capture you two just being you - naturally. We just help with little things like where to put your hands (that's always the awkward one!) or just a small tilt of a head. We like to have some fun and capture your genuine emotion and we want you to look at these photos in 30 years and say "yep that was us," not some version your photographer made you be. If you look at our portfolio - you'll see no two couples are the same. We just let their unique love unfold in front of our lens in a real and natural way. Some laugh a lot while others remain more serious - whatever your style -we'll capture it. We know you aren't models - but when you see your pictures for the first time - we hope you feel like one!
WHAT DOES THE TIMELINE OF THE WEDDING LOOK LIKE?
We usually arrive 3 hours before the start of the wedding. This gives us time to photograph all your special details (dress, shoes, rings, etc) and your “getting ready” shots as well as capture fun candids of you each hanging out with your bridesmaids, groomsmen and family. If you opt to do a First Look, we'll need 45 minutes - 1.5 hours more. This depends on if you choose to do all of your formal bridal party shots in advance of the ceremony as well. This usually allows us the proper amount of time to focus on your bride & groom portraits too! During the ceremony we tend to be more photojournalistic - just capturing the moments as they happen. After the ceremony, we'll take about 20-30 minutes to capture your family formals and then sneak in another 15 minutes or so with just the two of you. If we time it right - we hope to do these around sunset because they'll be gorgeous! During the reception we gear back into a photojournalistic approach and we catch all the important moments as well as fun candids while you two have fun with your family and friends!
WHERE WILL MY ENGAGEMENT SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
That’s entirely up to you! We are primarily natural light photographers and prefer to shoot in that environment to achieve our aesthetic. The majority of our clients are "destination" weddings - so we can truly do them anywhere you'd like. Many couples opt for a destination wedding, but have us come to where "home" is for them for the engagement shoot.
WHY DO YOU LOVE ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
We love them because it gives us a chance to get to know each other, make friends and just have some fun. Then on your wedding day you’ll know how we work and you’ll be more relaxed. Who wants a stranger showing up on their wedding day shoving a camera in their face? You’d much rather have a friend that you are already comfortable with, right? – and we prefer it that way too. We are the only vendor who will be by your side your entire day - wouldn't it be more relaxed if you knew us?
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes - often! We have been blessed to travel all over the country and world documenting our clients love stories. Please contact us for travel fees.
**There are no travel fees for Southwest Florida where we reside.
