We've got answers.

Whether it's package related questions, concerns about planning your timeline, or "what the hell does all this photo jargon mean," we've got an A to your Q.


What are the different packages you offer? What if I want to add/take out a service?

We have three levels of packages offering 8, 10 or 12 hours of coverage, prints, albums, & more. We're totally cool with tailoring each package to fit your needs and we also offer an a la carte menu should you want to create a package from scratch.

Do you work with an assistant or a second photographer?

Each wedding is shot by Melissa, Michael, both, or one of us + a second shooter. We always recommend having 2 photographers to catch every detail. Read more about that here

How long will it take for me to receive my images?

We pride ourselves on speed. We'll have sneak peaks ready in 12-24 hours and your full gallery in 2-3 weeks. You're so welcome.

Can we see a full wedding gallery?

Absofreakinlutely. We'll happily send over full galleries from previous weddings, Just let us know which gallery speaks to you and we'll email you a link so you can view the full body of work.

Do you offer engagement sessions?

You bet we do. They are included in our 12 hour package but can be added onto any package a la carte. We'll travel to your fav location and make some magic happen.

Our venue doesn't have the best lighting - how will our photos turn out there?

We use on & off camera flashes to bring light into dim spaces. We've shot dark, indoor venues as well as outdoor nighttime receptions. You can rely on us no matter the location.

Have you shot at our venue before?

If the answer is no - which sometimes, it will be - don't fret. We like to scout out all future venues pre & day-of wedding. We'll arrive early and find the best spots for portraits, we'll test our lighting to ensure we're prepared for the big day, etc.

We're new to the wedding photography world & don't know what to include in our package - what do you recommend?

We 100% recommend these 2 things at the very least: 8 hours of coverage & 2 photographers. 8 hours ensures the most important moments are documented, and 2 photographers will get 2 different perspectives of said moments. We also recommend an album or magazine - tangible photo products are so priceless!

How will you make sure to get every shot we want? 

We will work with you to plan your day-of wedding timeline and make the most of every second we have together. We will (of course) do formal portraits, family group shots, etc., and will be sure to ask which shots are MOST important to you - candid, formal, family/friend, and so on.

Is there a deposit? When is it due? Can we pay in installments?

There is a $1000 deposit due upon receipt of your contract. There are 2 payments after that: 75% of the remaining balance is due 2 months before the big day. The last 25% is due upon gallery delivery. If you ever have questions about payments/pricing, don't hesitate to reach out. We'll make it work for you regardless.
