Booking

We’re Interested in Booking You!

Excellent! We’re so happy to hear that you like our work! Send us a message through our contact page and let’s chat about your big day and it’s important details!! If we’re available for your date, typically the next step is to meet up for a chat to learn more about each other and to determine if we’re a great fit!

How far in advance should we book?

As soon as you have a date is ideal. Generally 6-12 months is the norm, but to ensure you are able to secure your date with us, we encourage you to book as soon as possible!

Can we meet for a chat?

You betchya! Let’s meet over coffee, share stories and chat about your day!
Heck, if it works out better, we could even Skype in our jammies if our schedules don’t match!

Do I really need a second photographer?

Every photographer works differently. Our second photographers also act as assistants; typical jobs are lighting scenes, focusing on Mom & Dad during the ceremony, and capturing different angles. Second shooters are an important part of my workflow, and I almost always have an experienced shooter with me.

CD/ DVD

Can we print our own photographs?

Absolutely! You may do what you wish with your high resolution images. However, note that there are differences in quality at each print shop. We offer quality printing services using colour profiles for prints true to digital negatives. Feel free to ask us more!

How many photos are on my High Resolution CD/DVD?

You receive your hi-res, retouched images on DVD or in an online gallery for you to download at your leisure. ¬†For weddings, the number of images varies depending on the duration of the day. Typically a full wedding day will consist of thousands of images that are culled down to the best moments, compositions, and overall images. Typically there will be about 500-800 images delivered (Trust us, you don’t want the misfires, out of focus, and random shots of our feet;)) The images on your disc or gallery are all HIGH RES and¬†watermark-free!

Editing & Post-Production

What is your shooting style?

Although we shoot in a photojournalistic tone and love candids, we do take a few shots that your Mom can’t live without! When we steal you away for couple’s portraits we also like to give direction instead of posing so the images don’t appear rigid or awkward (yuk!). Throughout the day we look for the special moments and emotions, but also approach each frame with an artistic eye so that we can provide images we’re proud of!

When can I see my edited images?

Within one week of the big day, a sneak peek will be posted- usually a few images to show off while everyone is still buzzing!! At two weeks you will be featured on our website with a few more photos to share! Finally, 6-8 weeks from the ceremony (usually enough time to settle in from the Honeymoon) you will be able to view all of your high resolution images in your online gallery! Packages may take up to 12 weeks for delivery.

Do you shoot in RAW format?

Yes we do! All images are captured in RAW format giving us the best file to produce high quality, sharp final images.

What is your editing style?

We love our photographs to pop! This is why colour and contrast is so important. We’re inspired by the look of film, however, we still love our images sharp! Black and white always goes well with more romantic images, so expect a few of those too!

Can I have the RAW images that were not edited?

Unfortunately we do not release RAW images. We go through a careful process to choose the best quality images to edit and deliver to you in high resolution.

Engagement Sessions

What should I wear?

It is important that you are comfortable! So if you don’t normally wear heels, it is probably not a great idea! Also steer clear of any distracting patterns on clothing as the camera does not pick them up well (stripes, close dots, some flannels).

How long is my engagement session?

Typically an engagement session will last around an hour and a half. We encourage you to pick a setting that means something to the both of you. We can recreate some of your favourite activities like strolling to the beach, endulging in your favourite ice cream store, or going for a bike ride!

Do you offer engagement sessions?

Absolutely! In fact, we think they are so important that we offer them in all of our packages.
Engagement sessions are a fantastic way to get to know each other and our working styles. We’ll become more comfortable with one another and get a feel for how the big day will go! We’ll also get a better idea on how you both interact with one another, which will make for a smooth wedding day!
In addition, you have the opportunity to order personalized Save The Date cards, Invitations, and Thank You cards for your guests!

At the time of booking, 20% of your balance will be your deposit (booking fee) and will hold your date in our calendar. Your remaining balance is due no later than 1 week before your wedding.

At this time no.
