We're a little less traditional in that we don't have packages that price by the hour. We build each wedding to fit our couples needs. Every wedding we build does have one thing in common, we're there with you for the day. Our style is photo journalistic in nature and we cant very well tell your whole story if were not there for it. We've been at weddings where couples are getting rushed through events trying to check off boxes so photographers make their time.... and thats just not for us.
2, both Alli and Timmy. We shoot all our weddings together unless special circumstance or requests dictate otherwise.
Yes, yes, yes. Getting to know each other is imperative to our shooting style and the authenticity of your photos. You're wedding is simply one of the biggest most important days of your life. It's full of emotions and that can be hard to fully experience if you're creeped out by the stranger in the room with a camera following your around. We want you to feel comfrtable with us and in front of our lens and we include an engagement session with EVERY wedding we do to help break the ice. It lets you get to know us and lets us get to know you, and your engagement photos are a great example of what you can expect your wedding images to feel like!
An adventure shoot is a route we design especially for you for a portrait session such as an engagement or day after session. This could mean strolling antique stores in small historic towns or hiking up a mountain at sunrise or chaseing down a storm on a private island at sunset. You dream it we create it!
A day after shoot is an adventure shoot we do the litteral day after your wedding or within that first week. We LOVE these sessions because the stress of the wedding day and the pressure of hosting everyone you love in one place is gone and the euphoria of being newlyweds has set in. This makes for some of the most magical images we've ever captured and a good 60% of the images you see on our site are day after shoots!
ABSOLUTELY! We've spent years learning color theory, composition, frame, and design. We know how the sun will hit your skin tone in fall vs spring. We know that evergreen tree's still change shade and what those shades bring to the atmosphere of your images. We know the difference between a summer and a winter ocean and most important we know how that translates into your images and our editing style. We can help with styling anything from outfits to florals and event decor all the way down to venue and atmosphere.
Of course! Ask us when your inquire and well get a full gallery over to you!
Yes. In addition to weddings we take a limited number of new clients each year for family, maternity and portrait sessions and we work with business's on professional branding imagery.
Our wedding packages start at $3200
Our portrait sessions start at $370
Our business branding is impossible to quote without a consult to learn about your business needs.
Your signed contract plus a 50% deposit holds your day. the remainder of your balance is due 21 days before weddings and events and 7 days before portrait sessions and business branding.
Our easy out claus is for our wedding couples. We include engagement sessions in every package to get to know you and more importantly for you to see yourselves in our work. If you get back your photos and decide were not the photographers for you, we totally understand and want your wedding day to be the best day ever. We'll rip up your contract and return your deposit save for the $350 dollar price of a portrait session. If you tell us what you're looking for we can even make some suggestions of other photographer we love who may be a better fit. Sounds crazy right? In our defense we've never had to actually do this so we're only crazy in theory for now.
Money is NEVER a fun thing to talk about, but we try to be as upfront and transparent as possible. This is our business policy as is most photographers because unfortunately we've experienced too many last minute cancellations and even disappearing acts when all the work was finished. We altered our payment schedules to protect our family and keep our business going BUT we also want to protect YOU! We have a fantastic trouble shooting process as well as an easy out claus for weddings to make sure you feel safe and happy with your investment.
if your engagement/family/maternity/branding images aren't everything you dreamed them to be we will happily regroup, and reshoot with you FO FREE. (obv) and we'll keep working until you LOVE your images.
We'll happily reschedule your portrait session with seven days notice. If you cancel or no call no show because of a family emergency out of you're control we'll happily reschedule you as well. With out proper notice or an emergency out of your control you forfeit your deposit. *they day we reschedule you too will be subject to calendar availability but we will do everything to get you back in as quickly as possible
We currently accept cash, check, and money tansfer apps including paypal, Venmo, and Zelle. We don't currently work with any credit card transaction comapnies because the amount of transactions we complete a year as a boutique business exposes us to ridiculously high fee's and avoiding those helps us keep our prices more competitive.
We are full-time photographers/small business owners. While we truly WANT to work with budgets it’s not always possible because we have a hard cost in order to profit and stay in business. There are a few circumstance that make it more likely for us to be able to work with your budget: Having your wedding on a Friday or Sunday or if your wedding is last minute and around the corner (within 3-4 months). We always encourage you to reach out to us either way and see what we can do.
YES, absolutely! Travel has always been a big part of our lives and our business, and anywhere from 20-40% of our shoots every years are travel related shoots. We've photographed weddings, engagements and families across the US and are now booking international events.
Our travel fee's are quoted on a case by case basis and are currently based on travel from Tampa Florida. Depending on how we'll need to get to where you are our fee's could include flights, rental cars, taxi's/ubers, hotel stays, or gas if we can road trip it to you. We also require an extra $500 for domestic commissions and $1000 for international commissions for time spent traveling and any other fee's that may come up along the way (we're looking at you Jersey turnpike)
It all depends on your location and the time of year. It's a pretty big state. If we can road trip to you with in 90 minutes theres usually no travel fee's. If we have to show up the night before or go home the day after your event fee's would include gas and a one night accommodation. If it's season and we have to be back in Tampa for another event the following day we may not be able to road trip to you and fee's could include a quick flight and a one night stay. We LOVE getting out of our comfort zone without all the commotion of a big trip so we're almost always willing to work with you!
We're currently based in Largo Florida, and spend a portion of our time in the mountains of east Tennessee. Largo is a once small now highly congested beach town in the greater Tampa Bay area.
In state travel: 1 night
American east coast: 2-3 nights
mid west: 2-3 nights
American West Coast: 3-4 nights
International: 4-5 nights
We're VERY cautious with travel and arrival times. A cancelled or delayed flight when you've left yourself no room to spare could end in disaster. We always leave room for backup travel options to make sure your day goes off without a hitch
There are a couple ways we can make this possible: if were already traveling during that time and can add you into the itinerary, if your event or shoot is in one of our bucket list locations, or if your event or shoot is in a location were currently trying to build business like:
Long Island/Manhattan NYC
(*if you're not in one of those locations inquire with us for bucket list spots)
YES YES and YES. We can come to you on your time or if you're flexible we often open dates up in different locations we know well be for portrait sessions and we work with businesses all over the country and are happy to come out to you and your element when its time to take your branding imagery to the next level.

Portrait sessions: 1-2 weeks

We deliver all Mco quality images fully edited in high resolution with printing rights. The amount of images will vary by the intricacy of your event. We shoot documentary style with intention.

Weddings: 500-700 images
