Why hire a husband-and-wife team?
What are your thoughts on natural light vs flash?
Can I print and share my photos?
What kind of equipment do you use?
Our workhorses include professional full-frame Canon cameras (currently four R5's plus a few 5D IV backups) with a full range of 10+ Canon “L” lenses and 8+ flashes with remote triggers, allowing us to handle any indoor or outdoor environment and lighting condition. We’re also stocked with light stands, umbrellas, reflectors, softboxes, and all kinds of other stuff.
If you want to see the huge list of exactly what we bring to weddings, down to the type of memory cards and camera straps we use, take a look here. You’ll even find out how Annie & David’s equipment preferences differ… after all, life would be a bit boring if we were identical :)
Is your business licensed and insured?
Wedding venues commonly require vendors to carry business insurance; let us know and we can furnish a certificate of insurance.
Are the couples on your site models?
*Well, except for photos of ourselves… Annie wouldn’t pay me for her maternity photos, so I had to do those for free.
What kind of editing do you do?
Editing is by far the most time-consuming part of our process, but as it's an incredibly important component of the finished product, we do all editing in-house to maintain full creative control.
How do you keep your photos safe?
We copy photos off our cameras’ memory cards to a computer as soon as possible after each shoot. From there, the photos are replicated to an on-site NAS with RAID capable of tolerating multiple simultaneous hard drive failures without suffering data loss and are uploaded to two independent cloud storage providers. Memory cards are only erased after cloud sync is complete. By keeping five copies of your photos in three geographically distant locations, we ensure that even a natural disaster will not result in the loss of your photos.
How and when will I receive my wedding photos?
While you’re waiting, we’ll give you a quick sneak peek of a couple of photos (so watch our Instagram!). Once your full collection is ready, we’ll upload the finished set to a private gallery for you to view and download them and to select your favorites for your album. We’ll then send you a design proof within a week, and you’ll get your shiny new album 1-2 months later.
(The information above is for weddings. For portrait sessions like engagement shoots, we’ll send your finished photos to you within 2-3 weeks.)
Do you travel?
