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!
