We are now located in the Monterey Bay Area after moving from New Jersey in March of 2019. We love to travel, especially for weddings!
We are proud to say we do not outsource and do all the hard work ourselves. From the first point of contact, to us photographing your wedding, to us editing all the images one by one and delivering your gallery, we are there every step of the way. Your day deserves to be personalized and hand crafted by your actual photographer and not some wedding factory. We aren't award winning novelists, but we write all our own blogs too!
Many photographers describe their style as either 'light & airy' or 'dark & moody'. We don't place ourselves into either category and think it's sort of silly to do so. Style is a lot more than the 'look' of a photo. For us, our style is a laid back journalistic approach. We are there to not only document, but offer guidance when necessary in order to let the moment unfold. We are a bit traditional in the sense that we think it's important to take getting ready pictures, as it's a huge moment before you begin this important day. Being able to capture your love story the authentic way is a huge part of our style. As we edit, we keep our photographs true-to-life in terms of color and proper exposure as well. Take a look at our work and decide for yourself if you like our style!
Each wedding varies depending on how many hours you book, but we are proud to say the images you receive are unlimited. We don't think it's fair to put a cap on the day's memories by having a selected amount of images in a package like many other photographers do. We do have a selection process that eliminates tests shots and misfires, but we do our best to deliver everything else. You will receive so many amazing photos that it will challenge you to choose a single favorite!
Our contract states that we have up to 8 weeks to deliver your gallery, but it will most likely be delivered a lot sooner because if it were us, we wouldn't want to wait longer either! We always deliver some sneak peaks before your final gallery arrival as well.
Aww nature! Sometimes it's not 'perfect.' So what if it's drizzling? Let's embrace it! However, if the weather gets so severe that our lives are in danger or our gear can get ruined, we will move to our Plan B that we will have previously agreed upon during our planning sessions.
We understand that things come up and life is weird, so we're pretty easy going and will do all we can to accommodate a date change. As long as we are available for your new event date, we credit all monies paid towards the new event. A new contract will be required and will reflect any changes in pricing at the time. If we are not available for your new date, we won’t be able to refund the retainer you’ve already paid and we have to treat it as a cancellation. We do this because when we reserved your original date for you, we have to reject other couples’ inquires for that day.
You have the right to reprint & share the images on social media for personal use. However, you may not sell your images for profit or publish your images without approval from us first.
Our travel costs are already priced into our collections & we book all our own travel, so it's one less thing for you to worry about. You will not get any surprise bills from us after your wedding!
Hakuna Matata! (It means no worries!) We know you aren't models and would never expect you to perform like one. Remember, this is your wedding day and 'stress-free & fun' is the name of the game. We don't want to be considered as just your photographer- we want to feel as if we have known you for years and you are just hanging out with another friend. There are no rules, except being yourself. Cheesy? Yes, but it's the truth! As a couple who says the same thing to other photographers while getting our own pictures taken, we understand, and we got you.
Your wedding day isn't just the vows and still deserves the same quality of coverage as someone having a more traditional wedding. This is still your day and the date will be your anniversary forever. Just because you're eloping doesn't mean your wedding doesn't mean as much. Therefore we do not document vows only and the minimum we book for local elopements is 4 hours.
Not at all! Your elopement should be whatever you want it to be. We consider ourselves adventure photographers, but your adventure can be literally anything. It is not a requirement to hike miles on a trail for your wedding day. Often times we can always find easily accessible spots right off the road that do not require that much effort to get to so you can still enjoy some killer scenery!
For weddings & elopements we require a 50% retainer to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your event.
Smaller sessions are due in full a (14) days prior.
