We recommend around 1.5 hours before sunset. Once you book with us, we will ask you what season you would like to take your photos in. When the calendar for that season opens up, we will send you first pick of dates. On that calendar are the best pre-determined times based on the sunset that day.
We recommend something semi-formal and simple, doesn't have to be pressed shirt and tie, but lean towards a nice dress and straying away from jeans. Dresses have a way of making movement in photos look beautiful, so we encourage brides to wear a dress. In order for photos to look the most timeless and for the focus to be on you and your fiancé, we also recommend choosing neutral colors and mostly solid clothing! Here is a Pinterest board of semi-formal outfits for more inspiration: Engagement Session Outfit Examples.
Up to you! We encourage couples to pick the time by the season they prefer to be documented in, and we recommend 4 to 10 months before your wedding day.
We see engagement sessions as essential in learning more about you and your chemistry, and getting you comfortable with us. We like to be very candid on your wedding day, meaning not disturb if we don’t need to, and document things as they happen. The more comfortable you are with us, the less you will notice us in the backgrounds of your day, and the more you will get out of your experience with us. This is why we always encourage engagement sessions, but they are not required.
To book your date, a 50% deposit and signed contract are required.
Our typical turn around time for wedding galleries is 4-6 weeks.
We don’t have a limit on how many photos we will deliver. We deliver as many as we can, typically an 8 hour wedding comes out to around 600 images.
Yes! We generate an online shareable ‘link’ for all our galleries so that you can easily share.
Yes! We release full rights to our photos to our clients, meaning you can print them yourself in any form and they are watermark free. We do also offer albums, check out more information about our albums here.
Yes! There are no restrictions when it comes to posting images, we love to be tagged so that we can see your images when you post, but it is not by any means a requirement!
We recommend second shooters on a case by case basis. In our experience, for smaller more intimate weddings, having two photographers can be a little distracting and is not something we recommend. The second shooters we hire are always photographers who have their own photography businesses as well so they are very experienced, and we have certain specific equipment we require they have so that their contribution works cohesively in your gallery. All second shooters have a quiet, behind the scenes approach, and will be very much in the background of your day.
