Frequently Asked Questions
HOW FAR OUT SHOULD WE BOOK Y’ALL?
The sooner the better! We book out anywhere from 18 months to 2 months in advance. It just depends on the season and date!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SHOOTING AND EDITING STYLE?
This question always stumps us because we don't really fit into a category. We shoot in a documentary style. We believe in telling your story, rather than just taking photos. As for editing, we aren't bright and airy, and we aren't moody. We fall in between, and we believe in staying true to color, rather than desaturating everything. We want the location you choose to look, well, like the location. We want to make sure that we edit the photos so that when you look at them, you are brought back to the place you chose to get married, rather than some overexposed or desaturated version of that. We would say that we edit in a timeliness, romantic, emotion-filled style. We try to avoid trends so that when you look back on your photos in 50 years, you don't see something that looks dated and weird. Instead, all you will see is your love and the emotions you felt on your wedding day
DO YOU BRING BACKUP GEAR TO WEDDINGS?
Abso-freaking-lutely! We are definitely "worst-case-scenario" people, and while nothing has ever happened to our gear, we would hate for that to happen at your wedding. So yes, we always carry backup gear, just incase!
I SAW YOU ARE LOCATED IN NORTH CAROLINA. DO YOU TRAVEL?
Heck yeah we do! We travel all over the states to photograph love stories, and it's one of our favorite things about our job. We also are willing to travel internationally. Check out our bucket list here!
WHERE EXACTLY IN NC ARE YOU LOCATED?
Our "home-base" is the Charlotte/ Lake Norman area, but most of our weddings are in the Asheville area!
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
We usually deliver weddings within 2-6 weeks, and portrait sessions 1-3 weeks! Since we deliver every single usable photo, the process varies. But we keep ya updated every step of the way!
DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
It totally depends on where you are getting married! That said, we offer discounts for certain areas. Check out our travel bucket list to see if your area applies! And if it doesn't, feel free to reach out and we can see what we can do!
DO YOU GIVE OUT RAW FILES?
Nope! That would be like a painter giving out only an outlined picture. Only 1/3 of our work is done after we shoot, and since you are hiring us for your style, we want to make sure you get that!
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER?
This is totally dependent on how many hours you book, but usually for portraits we say 50+ (though usually it's more like 100+), and for weddings, we say 500+ (though it's usually closer to 1000+). We are classic over-shooters, so trust us-- you won't miss out on any photos! We also deliver every single usable photos (ie. eyes aren't close, you aren't sneezing, etc.)
I SEE THAT Y'ALL DO A LOT OF "ADVENTURE" STYLE WEDDINGS. DO YOU DO TRADITIONAL WEDDINGS TOO?
Of course!! We never want to pigeonhole someone into doing an adventure style wedding or elopement, and honestly, we just love photographing love-- however that might look! Traditional weddings are the bomb, and we love being able to capture them!
I SEE THAT COMPLIMENTARY ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS ARE OFFERED WITH YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES. IF WE OPT OUT OF THAT, WILL THE OVERALL PRICE BE CHEAPER?
Unfortunately, no. We look at engagement sessions as a gift to you! It’s totally up to you as to whether or not you take us up on that (but we always recommend you do, because it’s always a fun time and a good way to get used to us and get comfortable with being in front of the camera!)
