FAQ

Booking a great wedding photographer shouldn’t be hard. We have compiled a list of questions that we get asked a lot. If you don’t find your answer here, please feel free to contact our studio. We would love to help.

HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE?

We have an off-the-cuff approach that captures the best of you on your day. We love moments, real moments. We combine personal moments with creative portraits that keep you engaged and moving, and we make sure that you get coverage of your wedding that is not only beautiful, but also authentic. If you would like to learn more about our approach to photography, you can find more information here.

What do you capture on the wedding day?

Depending on the number of hours you book, I will try to fit in as much as possible! The only break I take is to sit for maybe a quick dinner while my other photographer continues shooting. I take great pride in capturing all the details - from the hair & make-up application in the morning to buttoning up your dress, to the first look and ceremony's emotional moments, to the important family photos and various decor and design elements. I also ensure to capture candid moments of guests and special moments so that photos feel natural and genuine.

Do you offer engagement sessions or pre-wedding/after-wedding photography?

Yes and yes! Some couples think they don't need an engagement session because their wedding date is approaching fast or they would rather save the money to put towards their wedding package. But this is something that we prefer to include for all our couples and encourage strongly even if the couple thinks they simply don't need it. The engagement session is the perfect opportunity for us to establish a bond and relationship before your big day. Not only will we get to know each other better, but we will also take the time to understand what style of photos you like once you see your own photos, what is your "better side" for photos (unless you have two good side- in that case, lucky you!), and get comfortable simply being in front of a big camera before the big day. And as for pre-wedding or post-wedding photos, that is possible, too. Just ask us during the consult what you'd like and the number of hours so we can customize a package for your needs.

Do you offer engagement sessions or pre-wedding/after-wedding photography?

We have our own shot list that is in the back of our heads when it comes to wedding details, such as the rings, the gown, and decor details. 

However, we do rely on you to let us know about the specific portraits you would like us to take. Family portraits, group shots, and specific moments can be pre-planned and shot specifically according to your requirements so that not a single shot is missed. Think about the family groupings that are important to you, as well as groups of individuals from special moments in your life, like your college or childhood friends. Please let us know about any special features of your wedding, such as a surprise performance or fireworks, sparkler exits, and any other fun details you might have planned. We’ll make sure to get the perfect shot.

 

A word about table shots: They are so 1987. We don’t do them. Instead we have roaming photographers capturing your guests during the cocktail hour. Trust us, this style makes for far better results

HOW DO YOU HANDLE GROUP SHOTS (FORMALS)?

Every wedding needs formal group shots. “Group formals” as we like to call them, are simply a part of the wedding experience as you have a rare opportunity of families getting together. We have not photographed a single wedding without capturing these photos. Frankly, as far as photography goes, these are the shots we prepare for the most as we have to let people know where to be at a certain time. We do these portraits very well as we always scout the location for the photos and we light them if we are indoors (sometimes outdoors too). We’ll work with you to make sure that each grouping is pre-planned, and make sure that every member knows where to be at the perfect moment to capture the shot.

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE GET AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

We don’t have a set number and it does depend on the size of your wedding. If you have two photographers for eight hours, then it tends to result in approximately 700 to 1000 photos.

We definitely shoot more photos, but we edit out the shots that feature more of the floor than the faces of your friends, and we delete any shots where someone has walked in front of the camera. Nobody needs to see those. Those will be deleted.
