It's all about you, the couple...
Your wedding is all about you as a couple and our goal is to tell your story through photography while providing an experience as trouble-free as possible that will allow you to concentrate on having the best day of your life. And, it all starts with free, no obligation, consultations where you will meet to discuss your vision.
Our photographers have learned that, in addition to the more traditional posed moments at weddings, it is those special moments that are not planned that become the ones that are the most cherished. As such, our team will document your day so you and your family can remember everything that happened on your once-in-a-lifetime day for years to come.
Our images tell a story, your story, through photography. Truly, a picture can be worth a thousand words.
We provide several Free Consultation session which provide the opportunity to discuss your vision for the big day, expectations of the photographer(s), the identification of any special guests and a chance to answer any questions you may have.
During our meeting we will cover a number of key points and present some ideas for your consideration so when the big day comes - we will be prepared and you can focus your time on you.
Consultations are held around your schedule and location - starting with either email/phone call. This first meeting allows us to get to know each other and to discuss dates. We can then 'pencil' in your date and discuss any engagement photos you may be considering.
Prices start from $1295 - 2 photographers.
