That really depends on the importance and the significance of how much you want to remember your wedding day. A good average would be 10-15% of your total wedding budget. Many clients allocate a larger amount towards their photography. Just remember that after the wedding day, your photographs are what will remain as memories of that day. Which means they should be nothing less than spectacular!
I have standard packages that we advertise to shoppers for an idea of what they may be looking at, but the majority of our weddings end up with customized pricing to fit their needs and the story they’d like to create on their wedding day. Bring your ideas and your imagination, and we’ll strive to achieve that for you through our images.
We have a journalistic and story telling style that brings out the emotions of that moment through our images. We look for unique and “authentic” moments to capture where we can artistically present the image as a moment in time that creates imagination.
Your wedding day requires professionals that are very experienced in photographing all of the different moments throughout the wedding. We know what to expect, and game plan based on the schedule for your wedding with thorough preparation. If things change and go in a different direction, we’re always prepared and ready for the unexpected that goes along with weddings. That is what makes them fun and interesting for me, and our other photographers.
It is very important to build chemistry between us, and our clients. We enjoy shooting your wedding! We have fun, and we mingle with the guests in a way where they enjoy our presence and get excited to partake in being photographed. We get to know our couples quite a bit before the big day so that we can understand them and their desires better
An amazing honeymoon somewhere at an exotic place! We generally take 4-6 weeks to go through the entire collection of raw shots from the entire day. We’ll create a final cut collection of images that are color corrected along with a separate collection of edited images with an artistic touch for a more dramatic finish. We provide a minimum of 60 edited images, but we usually do a lot more and provide a lot of black and white shots as well. Our clients love our black and white collections!
Many of our clients feel awkward about posing in front of a camera. We totally understand! Posing doesn’t always feel natural, and it can be intimidating for some. We will create a time slot to create really dramatic images to make your wedding day look more like a fairytale as opposed to just another wedding.
Capturing candid images of people in their element is our most important goal throughout the entire day. We’ll get a ton of planned shots, but our clients mostly choose us because of the huge collection of images we have where people are enjoying the moment when they never realize they’ve been photographed. We’ll capture dozens of candid moments where raw emotion is displayed for an artistic presentation of an image. Knowing how to seek out those moments before they take place is a skill that requires instincts from photographing weddings over the years and seeing how people interact.
We are always creating a plan to achieve what our clients are after, but we’re also creating ideas on the fly throughout the day or during a photo session for as many looks as possible. We will be communicating the entire day in order to create the best collection possible, which gives our clients a really strong sense of reliability in what we’re doing.
Vibrant colors, solids and textures that complement you well are excellent choices. But don’t over-think it…the most important thing to remember is to wear something that you feel comfortable in as well and that is YOU.
Absolutely! We are destination-wedding photographers. We are based out of Houston, but we enjoy traveling for weddings more than anything. We are world travelers and have a travel blog as well that helps a lot of our clients with honeymoon destination choices and advice as well.
Unfortunately we don’t do video. We are strictly a still photography company. We have relationships with many trusted videography vendors that we are happy to recommend at different price points as well. We are happy to assist you in finding the right videographer if you need our help.
We require a signed contract committing us, and you to the date you provide us with. We require a 50% deposit that is non-refundable and the remaining 50% is due two weeks before the wedding date.
We can be contacted a number of ways. All of our clients will have our phone numbers. They contact us for questions and ideas very regularly. Some require phone calls, and some are through text messages if the client prefers that (Many of them do). We can also be reached through our website or any one of our social media platforms.
