What to expect
Honest + Intentional Approach
From the second you hit submit on our contact form to the delivery of your gallery, we promise to always be honest and intentional with you. We want to collaborate with our couples to create your dream wedding photo + video product. We work hand in hand with our couples to design a wedding day photo timeline that will be tailored to create the best experience for you! Sure, sometimes we can’t help harsh sunlight or prevent a storm from blowing in, but preparing a timeline in advance gives us the best chance! We want you to have all the fresh photos with the bomb lighting BUT in order for that to happen, ya gotta trust us.
Seamless + Stress Free Experience
We know that not every relationship is the same and that love is not a one size fits all. Whether your partner is camera shy, your bridesmaid is a control freak or you simply need a second to breathe and soak your day in – we’ve worked with it all. We recognize when there is a need to step away and when there is a need to step up and be direct. While I won’t personally have you re-do the same pose 10 times to get that perfect Pinterest worthy photo, we will never leave you guessing how to stand, look or pose! We guide our couples, their bridal parties + families along the way to ensure you receive the most seamless and stress free experience. The different dynamics during a wedding day can overwhelm some but we take pride in the fact that we are able to break the ice, read the room and get to work documenting those special moments for you without skipping a beat.
Your #1 Planning Sidekick
After booking you can expect a few things from us. Along with an engagement questionnaire to jump into planning our first session together, we also provide a complimentary wedding planning checklist and custom wedding magazine to all of our couples to help ease wedding stress. Being in the wedding industry for nearly 5 years now we have included our top tips + tricks we have learned over the years to ensure your wedding day goes off without a hitch.
More Than Just Your Wedding Photographer
Your wedding day is one day that you will never get back. A true celebration of your journey as a couple and it should feel like just that! When hiring vendors for your wedding, it’s important that you hire someone you connect with that you can trust. We never want our couples to feel as if their money is not valued or that they are just another wedding in our books. We don’t just show up as vendors to your wedding to grab our check and go. When you hire us, you get us + our heart the entire way.
Tailored Packages + Pricing
When it comes to wedding packages, there are multiple factors that come in to play. Will we be traveling to you? Do you have a guest count of 20 or 200? What day of the week does your wedding date fall on? There are different seasons in the wedding industry as well. Typically, for an Arizona wedding, our busy season is during the months of September – April with Saturday being our most sought after date. During wedding season clients may pay a higher rate than say a Thursday wedding in June. You see the comparison here?
While our packages do have starting rates, we offer custom built packages to each couple based on their needs to ensure we are meeting your budget as well as fulfilling everything we can on our end to give you a dream experience. Pricing for photo begins at $3000 and photo + video combined begins at $5000. With that being said, we understand budgets and as long as our efforts and time are being appreciated (and we can still pay our bills lol) we are absolutely open to discussing your budget. We would never turn away a couple in love and ready to celebrate.
All images are delivered through an online gallery where they will be available for download. Video will be delivered through Vimeo for easy sharing for highlight films. For more extensive videography services a USB will be mailed with RAW footage.
How many hours do we need?
We offer custom packages to each couple. In our experience, depending on the wedding, for most packages 7-9 hours is a good amount of time. With 7 hours you are able to get most of the days events, this works best for more laid back weddings with less events going on throughout the day. 8 + 9 hour packages are perfect for if you’d like to take your time without rushing to get every shot checked off the list. The 8 + 9 hour packages also leave enough buffer room if anything is running behind so that we can accommodate and make up time where needed to make sure we aren’t missing any important shots!
Do you photograph weddings with a second photographer?
A majority of the weddings and elopements we do are photographed solo! I generally shoot photo solo while Billy shoots video alongside me. Weddings with a hired second shooter, if not already doing video, Billy will shoot. If he is already hired for video, we have a list of associate photographers we have already used that we trust to put just as much heart into their shots as we do. If you are curious on whether or not you should add a second photographer, a few things to consider : does your guest list exceed 150? Do you have a lower number of hours for coverage where we logistically could not be in two places at once? Or if you’d just like those rad extra angles and extra coverage, that’s cool too!
Can we meet before the wedding day?
Establishing a relationship with clients is a must when we are capturing your wedding day! We do have several clients who come from out of state or are unable to meet prior, which is totally fine. We always prefer to have an engagement session prior to the wedding to get our couples comfortable with our shooting style and to give them an example of what to expect on their wedding day!
Plus, extra pictures of you & your boo. Who doesn’t want that?
Our packages start with base rates with the ability to add on extra hours, products, videography, photo booth, photographers, etc. Every wedding is tailored completely to fit our couples needs for their wedding day!
What is your turnaround time?
Turnaround time for photos is 6-8 weeks after your wedding day! Don’t let that time frame scare you – we promise we are spending that time creating the most incredible photos for you! Also, we will send you sneak peeks within a week of your big day to make it even sweeter!
What is the album process like?
After your photos have been delivered, I’d love your help in selecting photos to include in your album! From your online gallery you are able to go in and create a favorites list, depending on your chosen album, these generally include about 100 images, although you can definitely decide on more if you’d like. Photos with family groupings and cover material are impossible for me to decide for you. Once those are done, I’ll make the design and send it over to you for approval before submitting the order to my photo lab. From there, you can expect that album in hand within 3 weeks!
Do you travel outside of Arizona?
Heck yeah we travel! Travel has always been such a huge part of our business. A good portion of our weddings and elopements are from other states/countries. We’d love to be a part of your destination wedding!
