WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
We are honored to work with couples who share a refined taste in art and fashion. Our work is driven by elegant simplicity and the subtleties of a moment. We create art that is elevated, tasteful, and timeless.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes, we have photographed and filmed weddings all around the world. In fact, the majority of our wedding commissions are from out of state and/or destination weddings. A customized travel quote will be made for any weddings outside of California or France.
ARE YOU NATURAL LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Many brides contact us that have been advised to seek out natural light photographers. The short answer is that we use whatever tools are best for the specific image we are creating. Every decision we make as photographers manipulates light in some way. This includes where we stand, the equipment we use, and the settings we choose. We use various cameras, films, and lighting equipment depending on the specific situation.
DO YOU SHOOT FILM OR DIGITAL?
In short- both. This is similar to the natural light question in that we use whatever gear is best in a specific situation. We love the look of analog film, but there are many situations where a modern digital camera excels.
WILL YOU MAKE US POSE?
There are times throughout the wedding day in which it is best to let the moment spontaneously unfold, and times when gentle direction is useful and actually comforting. We can recognize when each is more important, and while we definitely won’t make you pose if the situation doesn’t require it, we will definitely be at your service with our expertise in composition if needed.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS SHOULD I HAVE AT MY WEDDING?
If you are having a reception with over 60 guests, a second shooter is recommended. It might even be best to consider 3 or 4 photographers depending on the size and timetable of the event. If your event has less than 50 guests you could definitely consider a single photographer. Our films require a minimum of two cinematographers.
DO YOU TAKE FAMILY PHOTOS?
Family photos are an important part of the legacy that we are documenting on your wedding day. These combinations are the most effective way to make sure we have great images of the bride and groom with each family member.
DO YOU TAKE PHOTOS OF THE DANCE PARTY?
The viewer of your wedding images should feel like he or she is right there in the room, experiencing each part of the day. While our signature, sophisticated style is the perfect pairing to document the beauty of your ceremony, our approach does change as the evening progresses. As your friends and family loosen up, the energy in our imagery reflects this.
