WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? West Chester, Pennsylvania, just outside Philadelphia! Although you'll find us regularly in all the major North East cities—DC, Baltimore, Boston, NYC!
DO YOU TRAVEL? Yes! We Love to travel and jump at the chance to visit new places. No matter where you are—if you're interested in booking us, please get the conversation started!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THIS? I began shooting weddings and anything I possibly could in 2009. That same year I attended two internships and working with two amazing photographers David Sacks & Sarah Barlow—I am so grateful for what Iearned from both of them. Since then I've had the honor of photographing hundreds of weddings, events and families.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER? Yes! It's definitely doable to shoot a wedding with just one photographer but we always use second shooters and loving getting to work as a team! 90% of weddings it's the fabulous Caroline, but when she is booked elsewhere we have some excellent photographer friends to call on.
WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE? We shoot with Canon and always carry backups! 5D Mark III camera bodies. We love prime lenses and our go-tos are 50mm 1.2, 35mm 1.4, 85mm & 70-200mm. For dark receptions we use a few Canon 600ex Speedlights and we have other various fun gadgets to capture the best photos possible!
WHAT IS A PERSONAL PRINTING RELEASE? These are legally granted rights to create personal reproductions of our work together, with no qualifiers on which printing company you choose to work with. The studio retains the copyright - which basically means I will try to get your images in a print or online publication!
HOW LONG UNTIL WE GET OUR PHOTOS? The maximum turn around time is 6 weeks for wedding photos and 4 weeks for engagements and families. This is the max, and typically you will receive them in about half that time!
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET? On average you'll receive about 100 images per hour of shooting. So on a normal 8 hour wedding day you'll receive about 800 images all professionally edited!
HOW WILL OUR PHOTOS BE DELIVERED? You will receive your images in an online gallery where you can download the full-resolution photos, easily share through e-mail, Facebook, twitter etc., order professional prints and it's an online backup for the next 10 years! You'll also receive a USB in the mail—because it's fun to hold something in your hands. :)
HOW AND WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK YOU? You can e-mail, call or meet up at any time! As we grow and expand we are booking up much more quickly. If you're eager to book I would highly recommend reaching out as soon as possible to see if we are available for your date.
WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT PROCESS LIKE? We ask for a downpayment, retainer fee of 50% of the package and the rest is due by the wedding day. Most people prefer to pay the final payment ahead of time (just to not have to worry about money on the day of!) but whatever you feel most comfortable with. If you're resources are limited and you'd be interested in a payment plan don't hesitate to ask.
LICENSED AND INSURED? Yes!
DO YOU HAVE ANY VENDOR RECOMMENDATIONS? Yes we do! Let me know what you're looking for and I'd be happy to try to connect you with some of our industry friends.
