Frequently Asked Questions
What are Fine Art Weddings?
To me, a fine art photo is not just about beautiful pictures but the meaningfulness and life each one contains. Every image we take is thoughtfully captured and I believe it's really got to say something to you. That takes a combination of anticipation, skill, personality, and creativity. Your experience & breath-taking imagery are the foundation for everything we do. We're all about emotion and capturing who you truly are. The moments that are real and authentic mean the most to us. It's a once in a lifetime event and photography is one of the only things that will last just as long as your marriage does. On average, over 40 hours of work will go into your event, bringing everything together to make sure you can beautifully share your timeless story with your friends and family for years to come.
Can you tell me why we should choose you?
- Photographs are important to you and you want those from your wedding to be awesome.
- My images have a voice, they speak to you in a certain way - you appreciate how they appear more alive, more natural, more fun, more… something. And you want that.
- Like me, you‘re one of those people who might not want your picture taken so you want to hire someone who makes it easy, pleasant, and even fun. But at the same time, you want them invisible most of the day.
- You are the type of person who prefers to deal directly with the artist who will meet with you personally over a well pulled espresso in his beach front mansion, and give you one-on-one personalized attention from start to finish. Well, I don't have the mansion but I can defintely get you a drink!
- You think that most photographers’ wedding work looks pretty much the same and you want something better - something more you and not so staged or ‘weddingy’.
- You understand that the person you hire is going to be an important part of your entire wedding experience and you want someone who can actually put you at ease and add to the pleasure of your day.
- You’re fun and we love to have fun.
What and when do I need to do to hire you?

A 30% deposit and a signed wedding photography agreement are required to reserve us for your wedding date.
Can you tell me about the wedding collections you offer?
We know just how crazy the whole process of wedding planning can be so we kept things as simple as possible. We've come up with collections that include those things that we know will make the most of your wedding photography experience.
Collections with 6 hours of coverage or more start at $2900 & include the following,
2 Wedding Photographers + Artistically enhanced images + A signed print release with your images + All High-Resolution images delivered on a six month online highlight gallery for viewing, sharing, and downloading images with family and friends.

We're happy to provide additional information on rates for our commissions. We understand that you need to invest in that which is most important to you. And since your photographs and albums are one of the very few things that will last far after your wedding day, you might want them to be amazing. Of course you being in them will make them the best pictures ever! We just want to take it to the next level!
Can you help me create a collection?
Absolutely! While we have collections we've created from of the most asked for services and products, we can tailor them for you. Contact us to set up a free consultation so you can create something that will perfectly fit what you want.
Do you create albums as well?
Yes. We use only the very best manufacturers to ensure that you are getting the very best albums available anywhere. Fully customizable, one-of-kind Albums. Please contact us for more information on our wedding albums.
Can I make my own prints?
They're your pictures and you can do pretty much as you like with them. Of course there’s a huge difference between a print you make at your local printer and those from a top professional print lab. Only we can fully realize the vision of our photographs – both technically and emotionally. Only we care that much about them. But of course, we leave the choice up to you.
What is your photographic style?
I recently watched an interview with an absolute legend in photography, Jay Maisel. He was asked about style and what he thought about photographer's needing to have a style and he said (paraphrasing him), "Style is a superficial kind of thing. The very word means something that's going to go out of style after a while."
What I'm passionate about the most is creating images that will stand the test of time and the only way to do that is to capture moments that are real, authentic, and purely you. Moments filled with life and emotion. Expressions that are colorful and intimate. Not a style or a trend... your life together is much more than that and we'll make sure it's beautifully captured.
You emphasize that the personality of the photographer is important. Why?
Remember you'll be spending almost the entire day (one of the most special and emotional days of your life) with your photographer. You want to feel comfortable around and supported by this person. You want someone who knows how to lead and direct and when to be turn invisible. To me, how you connect with your photographer is the most important thing when it comes down to choosing who you want to capture your wedding day.
