the process

the meeting 

so you think you may want to work with us because you looked around the website and you were like "YES"?! fantastic news! thank you! we would love to meet with you. choosing a photographer and/or wedding planner is a really important part of this whole wedding process. if we are the perfect fit, hurray! and if not, that's ok, too. we really don't want to have enemies for seventy years. we want you to truly enjoy who you are working with for your wedding day. we believe being humans who can connect with each other on a personal level is the key to great photographs and a perfect day. we are service providers and artists so there needs to be a healthy balance of working for you but being trusted to do our jobs well. we usually meet over coffee or pizza or both. we like to create a chill vibe and just get to know each other. at the meeting we also go over the contract and details of what we offer and get to know your wedding day vision. 


the engagement sesh

we don't want to learn who you are on your one and only wedding day. after the meeting and booking, we schedule your one hour e sesh. we love for this to be a super personal time! we suggest not doing any thing else this day if you can help it. no meeting with other wedding vendors, no fighting, no work. just a day off together with a small double date with us and our cameras sprinkled in. we love to meet you in your favorite places to photograph, go on a jaunt together in the woods if that's your thing, eat a picnic lunch and photograph you riding your bicycles. read books and shop record stores, making dinner in your apartment together. craft beers and fire pits on your patio. these are your memories so let's make it about what you actually do in your real lives! we always say this session isn't even about photographs. you get them, of course! we take them, we love them, but really it's about us all connecting in a working relationship so that we will be fully prepared for your wedding day. 


the wedding day & beyond

we want to you actually experience your wedding day. during the meeting we got to know your wedding day vision and throughout the process we have been available to offer suggestions, you've planned (hopefully with our planner, shelby!) for months and now is the time to just LET GO and ENJOY. live this day. the attitudes of our couples completely determine how the wedding day goes. we capture your day as is. we are not magicians and do not make moments happen. we love to work a photo journalistic vibe into the happenings of your day. after the wedding day you have to wait for what feels like forever to get your photos back. we're the last thing you're waiting on! so we always ask that you be kind and patient and we'll send you a couple favorites as a preview to hold you over.
