First of all, allow me the opportunity to say CONGRATULATIONS! If you are reading this section, chances are you are engaged, or thinking about it in the near future. Choosing a wedding a photographer is a BIG DEAL, and we COMPLETELY understand that. More than likely, you will spend your ENTIRE wedding day with your photographers, so my advise is to choose wisely. This is one huge reason why photographing weddings are our absolute FAVORITE event to capture! Our mission for your BIG DAY is to document all of those special moments that make this milestone in your life unforgettable.
My husband and I have been photographing weddings together for over a decade, and each wedding has held a special place in our hearts. We show up when you are getting ready and don't leave until you do. This ensures that no memory has to be "staged" because the "photographers have to leave". Our Executive Wedding Package is super simple. We have asked our Brides/Grooms over the years what they want in a photography package, and pretty much everyone has stated, "We want the digital rights with copyright release so we can keep our memories forever & and we want to capture ALL of the moments of our BIG DAY". This is why we offer No Time Limit.
Before the Ceremony
Since we offer No Time Limit, we arrive when you are getting ready. It actually works out really well that my husband photographs weddings with me because while I'm taking pictures of the bride and bridesmaids doing hair/makeup, Jeff is with the groom/groomsmen. During the "getting ready" process, we also coordinate some time for photos of the rings/garter/shoes and various amenities around the grounds of the venue. We have photographed weddings with "First Looks" as well as ones that take the more traditional approach. Before the ceremony, we've captured foot washings, reading letters from each other, touching hands beside an open door, and speaking to each other blindfolded. When it comes to weddings, we've pretty much seen it all! And we welcome any and every suggestion to make this time one-of-a-kind for you.
During the Ceremony
As the doors open, the groom glaces down the isle. The look on his face says it all... Pure joy! We want to capture this moment and many more as you say, "I do". It's so nice to have two photographers shooting hundreds of pictures throughout the day. It's even more spectacular to have us both there during the ceremony for two different view points. While I'm taking wide angle shots of the ceremony, Jeff might be using our extra long zoom lens to get a close-up of your hands as you exchange rings. While I'm capturing the bride coming down the isle, he is getting the groom's face.
We try to stay out of the way as much as possible during the ceremony while still documenting the important memories that you want to keep. We pride ourselves on working well with any videographers you choose to use during the ceremony as well. Again, our mission is to capture the memories that you want. It's YOUR day, and we want it to be special!
After the Ceremony
Celebration Time!! It's that time you've been waiting for... "I now pronounce you husband and wife!" You are married!! Now the party begins and there are LOTS more memories to be made. We are ready to capture cutting the cake, garter toss, throwing the bouquet, sunset pictures, family portraits, dancing, toasts, guests mingling, and sending off the bride/groom under an array of beautiful sparklers in the night sky. Each wedding is different and we are ready to "go-with-the-flow". We work extremely well with any wedding coordinators or venue staff to provide the most seamless transitions into the celebration portion of the BIG DAY!
After the wedding, I edit all of the pictures and put them on a crystal flash drive for you and give you a full copyright release. This allows you to do whatever you wish with them- print, share, etc. They are your memories forever!
