FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I hire you guys for just a few hours?
Because we feel a wedding is an all day event, all of our packages are full day services. We do not offer partial day services.
Are engagement sessions included as part of your standard photography package?
Engagement Sessions are not a part of our standard Stills Package. They are offered as a discounted add-on or as a separate, stand-alone purchase.
How early will you guys start shooting and how late will you guys shoot into the evening.
Typically our brides and grooms enjoy that we try and capture the day in its entirety as it unfolds. So we like to start with the bride and her girls at the salon or at home, as well as the groom and his boys, as they prepare for the big day.
We tend to stay at the reception capturing all the big moments. On occasion we will stay till the end to send the newlyweds off in style with the help of their friends and family.
