WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
We believe the best coverage of a wedding comes from being a photojournalist, portraitist, and fine art photographer. It would be very difficult to define what our style is. We try to be all of those, but really what we want at the end of a wedding day is a beautiful representation of what happened.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?
Over 300! When I started working as a wedding photographer in 2012 I knew it was all I wanted to do. I photographed for two years before Kari decided to join as our second lead photographer and we shoot every wedding together. Since I started we’ve photographed over three hundred couples on their wedding day. Some of these are just the four of us on a mountaintop, some are at a venue with over two hundred in attendance.
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL WEDDING DAY COVERAGE?
This will depend on exactly what you’d like for a wedding. We offer an elopement package for just the two of you for three hours, and we have an all day package for full weddings at venues. Please contact us to get some definite information.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY COVERAGE?
Our three hour elopements with just the two of you in the Estes Park area start at $1400. Our all day weddings start at $4500 for full day coverage. We have packages for everything in between. Again, please let us know what you have in mind and we’ll be sure to get back to you right away.
DO WE GET TO MEET YOU BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?
All of our weddings are destination weddings, whether you come here to Colorado, or we go around the world with you. That being said, it would be great to meet before the wedding day in person if possible. We can have a chat online if not.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL WORK MY WEDDING?
Always two! We work as a team and know how to get both angles while something is happening. What does that mean? OK, for instance, when you are walking down the aisle and your handsome groom looks at you and starts to tear up we will have photos of him and you at the exact same time. Is there really any other way to “capture” a moment? We have done this so many times that it comes without thinking and we have dialed in our “game” to catch moments like this.
CAN YOU HELP WITH THE ORGANIZING OF OUR WEDDING?
Short answer, no. We are photographers, not wedding planners. I know that sounds a bit harsh, but we just want to focus on your wedding photography and not the other details we have no control over. We can point you in the right direction for flowers, MUA’s, hair stylists, DJ’s, and venues. If you are planning on having a simple elopement or a large, multi day wedding, it would be in your best interest to hire a wedding planner. We know several and they all do fine work, but the one we’ve worked with most often is Casey at Pink Diamond Events. Reach out to her for your wedding planning needs. Her command of a wedding day is nothing short of amazing.
DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSIONS?
No. Period. We do not. No amount of begging, groveling, or shenanigans will change our mind, even if your kids are the “cutest we’ve ever seen”, or “we’re really good looking so it will look great on your site” (both of these scenarios have been used with us). We do not shoot “just one family portrait” or “just one headshot”. When you reserve time with us, please understand the amount of knowledge and practice it takes to create images of you, your family, or your wedding.
When we reserve a photo shoot, it is for the day. We only shoot one session per day and it is not worth anyone’s time to shoot for 30 minutes. The smallest session of any kind that we offer is for two hours.
HOW DO WE HIRE YOU?
Easy. Just send us an email and the four of us will begin to get to know each other so we all know we’re a good match.
