Why should we choose you?
Our team has collectively captured over 1,000 weddings. We are full time photographers and filmmakers with a wide variety of experience. While we specialize in weddings, we’ve also had the opportunity to shoot commercials, music videos, and marketing campaigns with celebrities, athletes and international artists. Our versatility helps us to navigate any situation we may encounter. In addition to our expertise behind the camera, our team is well versed in the wedding day procedures. We’ll help ensure that the day goes smoothly and everyone has fun, all while capturing beautiful photos and films.
Whats your approach?
We aim to capture moments as they happen. We’re relatively hands-off, capturing genuine moments throughout the day, however we do step in and provide guidance during the portrait sessions. We love capturing weddings, and we’re happy to take any specific requests you may have. Above all, we will strive to ensure your wedding day goes smoothly.
What are the deliverables?
We deliver all photos in JPEG form through an online gallery. From there you can easily download and share individual photos or the entire collection. There’s also an option to buy prints of your favorite photos in a variety of sizes. Wedding collections usually contain about 900 photos, and you can see some samples of complete galleries below. Videos are hosted and delivered through Vimeo. Using the link we send, you can share, embed, and download the full HD video.
What are the costs for travel?
Our team is based in Virginia but we love to travel and we’re available worldwide. All wedding packages include two hours of travel from either one of our offices in Richmond or Winchester. Additional time in the car is billed at $75/hour. Our team can drive up to four hours one way before the event is considered a destination wedding. We write custom proposals for all destination weddings based on distance and duration of stay.
How do I reserve my date?
We ask for a signed contract with a 50% deposit to reserve the date. We maintain a strict first come first serve policy, and we frequently have multiple inquiries about the same date. If you’ve found your way here, you’ve already been in touch with someone from our team. Whenever you’re ready to book, please reach out and we’ll get a contract in your hands.
What is the full ceremony edit?
The full ceremony edit is a complete recording of your wedding ceremony – start to finish. The ceremony is captured from two angles: one still camera on a tripod and a second camera “floating” around the room. The full ceremony edit also includes clips of the first dance, parent dances, and toasts from the Best Man and Maid of Honor. Full ceremony films are delivered via mail on a USB flash drive, separate from the highlight film.
What is RAW footage? Can I have it?
RAW footage is the collection of 100-300 video and audio files that we use to create your wedding highlight film. It is unedited with no color correction – directly out of the camera. We are happy to send you a USB flash drive with all your raw footage, and we ask a flat rate of $250 for the time and costs associated. For highlight films we usually capture the ceremony and speeches in their entirety, however there is no guarantee that the RAW footage will include an uninterrupted recording of either unless you request the full ceremony film prior to your wedding day.
What does an engagement session entail?
The engagement session is a one-hour photoshoot with your wedding photographer, prior to your wedding day. These photos are great to use on Save the Date invitations or display at your wedding. Together we can select a location that fits your style, and you’re welcome to bring several outfit changes. We travel up to one hour from either Winchester or Richmond VA free of charge, and we ask $75 per hour for additional travel time.
Do you have a Photobooth?
Yes! Well… kind of. We have partnered with FlashFrame to offer their Photobooth services to all our wedding clients. We have worked with the FlashFrame team several times in the past. They consistently uphold the same degree of professionalism that we expect from our own team, which is why we feel confident recommending their services. Have a look around their site here.
We tend to highlight our wedding portraits, however a full day collection comes with 900+ images from throughout the entire day. The majority of the collection is candid moments, however we will pose you for a handful of portrait sessions throughout the day, as well as organizing and capturing staged photos of family and the bridal party. Please review some sample galleries below.
Thank you for your interest in our work, and we’d love to capture your special day. If you’re ready to book or have additional questions, please reach out through our existing e-mail thread. If we do not have an existing thread, start a new one by clicking here.
