Frequently Asked Questions

• Can I create my own package?

Yes! Our packages are merely suggestions because we know every wedding is unique. Please feel free to add any additional services from the a la carte menu to create your dream package. Contact us if you see something in the package that you don’t think you need and we can work something out.

• How far in advance should we book our wedding date?

We suggest booking 12-18 months before your wedding day.

• How do we reserve our wedding date?

It’s easy. We require a signed photography agreement along with a $500 deposit/retainer to reserve your date.

• How far can you travel?

We truly love to travel! There really is no limit to how far we will go. Anywhere within 1 hour of West Chester is free of charge. Fees for destination weddings are tailored depending on accommodations and other travel costs, such as airfare or rental vehicles.

• Can you begin somewhere other than the ceremony location?

Yes. We can start shooting wherever you are. This is the best way to get preparation shots of the bride. As a team we travel together, so if the bride & groom are getting ready at the same place it works out perfectly!

• You mentioned preparation shots. Does this mean you will be taking pictures while I am in my underwear?

We understand that this can be awkward for all parties! So we do a good job getting nice, unrevealing shots. We are a male & female team so depending on how comfortable you are, it is easy for one of us to leave the room, or we can even wait until all the finishing touches are being done. This is when the emotion pours out. That is what we like to capture, not you in your skivvies!

• Can we do family pictures before the ceremony?

This is a great option for saving time on your wedding day. We can do them whenever is most convenient for you to make your wedding day flow the way you plan it to.

• How long does it usually take for group portraits?

We estimate about 3-5 minutes per group to get everyone into place. Please keep this in mind while planning your group photos! You definitely want to leave enough time for portraits of just the two of you.

• Can we go to another location for pictures?

Definitely. We want to take great pictures just as much as you want to get great pictures, so if you have a special place in mind that you both like, please let us know. We do like to scout locations so we know what the area looks like. It is also possible for us to offer suggestions depending on your wedding location.

• Do you bring backup equipment?

Yes. We wouldn’t consider taking on the responsibility of capturing your wedding without bringing along backup equipment.

• Do you bring lighting equipment?

We are minimalist at heart and love working with natural light, but we do always bring along additional lighting for when the need arises.

• How long does it take to get our pictures?

You get your first glimpse through the online gallery which is posted within two weeks of your wedding. Your USB Drive will then be mailed. Album design and printing takes approximately 6-8 weeks.

• What is the album design process?

You choose the images you want, and we customize a layout around those choices. We normally go through and add some extra detail shots for backgrounds and add a few shots to suite your albums design. Designing a layout can take up to 2 weeks. Then we will post a proof for you to review online. At this point you can make changes if you want before we have it printed, which takes 4-6 weeks. Your album can then be sent in the mail, or we can bring it to you. The sooner you pick your images, the sooner the album can be done.

• Can I print my own images?

Yes. All services include a DVD of the high resolution images which can be printed either at home or through the lab of your choice.

• Can I post my images online?

Sure! You can use the images on your DVD to post pictures online, like Facebook etc. We wouldn’t mind a shout-out either!
