What is your style?
Timeless, artistic, and authentic. We photograph your day as it unfolds, naturally without interference from us. However, we also put a lot of energy and time into your “creative portraits,” which are the photos of just the two of you. We look for interesting light, angles and backgrounds, creating wedding portraits that are works of art.
How do I choose the right photographer – what are their differences?
From photojournalism to fashion and/or fine art photography, our photographers are highly skilled in their own right. Each one comes with their individual style. We have a description of each photographer in their bios. Please look at their portfolios and see if you see yourself in his or her pictures.
How many photographers will be at my wedding?
Each of our standard collections includes one expert photographer and one second photographer. However, our bespoke collections allow you to commission as many expert photographers as you wish.
Can we commission you for our destination wedding? How do you handle travel?
Of course! We have photographed weddings in Europe, Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and across America. There are no travel fees from Denver west to Beaver Creek, north to Estes Park, or up to two hours travel time. Lodging is required if rehearsal/brunch coverage is included, inclement weather, or wedding day coverage concludes after 12:00am.
Aspen, Steamboat Springs, Santa Fe, Cheyenne, or up to 3+ hours travel, it’s $400.00 plus lodging.
Other travel fees are: Continental US: Airfare and car rental, if necessary, minimum two nights lodging.
Hawaii / International Airfare and car rental, if necessary, minimum three nights lodging
Do you need a shot list? How do you handle family photos?
A shot list is not encouraged. We capture your wedding day as it unfolds. Those shot lists you see in bridal magazines and websites are captured by us without prompting. Once you book us, we’ll send you a guide to the wedding photography process. Couples love this because it provides valuable information on the photography aspect of your wedding. It includes our suggested list of family groupings and other special people we need to be aware of at your celebration.
How many photos will we get and how long does it take?
We don’t have a set number and it depends on the size of your wedding. If you have a 2 photographer coverage for 8 hours, then it tends to be between 700-1000 photos. We definitely shoot more photos, but we get rid of the shots of the floor and when someone walks in front of the camera. Nobody needs to see those. Those will be deleted.
The photos will be delivered 4-6 weeks after the wedding.
What is included in your standard collection?
- You receive a beautiful proof gallery which you can share it with your family and friends.
- Every collection has at least one wedding album.
- You receive a DVD slideshow of highlighted images from your wedding day
- All the high-resolution files on a USB drive for your personal use
What if something happens to my photographer?
Once committed our photographers will be there! There are no ifs, why’s and buts. However, if something tragic occurs we would have one of our other studio photographers fill in. We are also very connected in the photography world, so we’ll have you covered.
What is your payment schedule?
A retainer fee of one third of your total collection is due to reserve your date. The second third of the balance is due at three months before the wedding and the final third is due at one month prior to the wedding.
We wish we could meet with you, but we don’t live in Denver. Is there an alternative?
The majority of our couples hire us without an in-person meeting. We are very quick, and very thorough, with emails and phone calls and are able to answer most questions in those ways. However, we are happy to schedule a Skype video meeting. A lot of our out-of- town clients have done this, and we love it! We can always find a time and method that works for you!
