How do you describe your style?
Our photography style is a mix of conceptual, candid and portraiture with a touch of street style. We love real, raw, unscripted and engaging moments. Capturing these special moments provide timeless photos that we are sure you will treasure for a lifetime.
What type of camera equipment do you use?
We shoot with professional Canon equipment which includes two cameras for weddings. We only use full frame cameras and prime lenses.
We photograph in RAW format. We have all of the best software and hardware for photo-editing. We also calibrate our monitor every 3 months to ensure correct image color and contrast.
What rights do I have to the digital files?
With your digital files you will receive a print release for all of your edited images. This gives you the right to print the images wherever you choose for personal use. You can use your digital photos for prints and share them on social media. Commercial use is not allowed. The copyright of the images always belong to the photographer.

The Photo Session
How should we prepare for our Session?
Having a positive mood is the most important thing. Shake off those nerves. Make sure you have enough time to prepare beforehand so you are not stressed. We are experienced in our field and will help your big day go smoothly.
It is best to avoid neon colors. Small spaced plaid or striped shirts can also cause an effect called "moire." Moire causes a 3D effect in photos.
Bringing treats for younger children is a great idea, it's a great distraction when grumpy moods occur.
What if there's bad weather on the day of our session?
As we try our best to work around reasonable weather conditions, sometimes we need to reschedule due to severe weather for everyones safety. Your safety is our number one concern. We also have expensive camera equipment that cannot be exposed to severe weather conditions.
After the Session
How soon after the session or wedding are photos ready for viewing?
We try our best to get a few sneak peeks up a few days following the session or wedding. For completed albums our current delivery time is:
2 weeks for regular sessions
6-10 weeks for weddings
3-4 weeks for corporate portraits
