FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What style of photography do you specialize in?

We shoot our weddings, engagement sessions and other events in an artistic photojournalism style. Read more about our style and approach here.

 

What do your packages include?

All of our wedding and engagement photography packages include all of the full-sized, high-resolution keepers from the event in a private, online gallery. They are all edited and color corrected to ensure they look their best. We also have traditional prints, canvas prints, wedding albums and more options available. Here are some examples of how we deliver your photos.

 

Do you have liability insurance?

Yes. It is important that every photographer has liability insurance, as most wedding venues require it. If you are currently searching for wedding vendors and they do not have insurance, you could personally be liable if an incident were to occur caused by that vendor. Please make sure your vendors have liability insurance! 

 

How much do your packages cost?

Our pricing packages vary based on photographer, wedding date and location. To receive a price quote, please fill out the contact/availability form. This will help determine the appropriate price for your event.

 

How do we book you?

We ask for a 35% retainer fee to hold the date, along with a signed photography agreement. Once we’ve received both, your date will be locked in! Sorry, but we do not put holds on dates until both have been received. 

 

Where is your area of coverage? Do you travel?

We’re based in Fort Collins, CO but travel all over the country. Additionally, we’re destination wedding photographers and travel around the country frequently. We’ve shot weddings in multiple states and out of the country and would love to talk to you about your wedding plans no matter where they are.

 

We’re a bit camera shy and we’re not good at posing ourselves. Is that a problem?

Absolutely not. In fact, almost couple that walks through our door has this same concern but never fear – we’re professionals! Because we do this full time, we’re experts at making couples look and feel natural. We have a ton of fun on our photo sessions and this fun, relaxed style of shooting we have translates incredibly well in photographs.

 

Should we do a first look?

Short answer: Yes. For a more detailed answer on why we recommend First Looks, feel free to read our blog post on first looks.

 

Do you offer additional photographers? Is a second photographer necessary?

Yes, and a second photographer is not necessary, but highly recommended. A second photographer allows for more photos, a variety of angles and allows us to become more creative with advanced lighting techniques and poses.

If you’re unsure whether or not a second photographer is necessary for your wedding, discuss your event details with Sean or Lyssa and they will give you their opinion on whether or not it is cost efficient for you to add on a second photographer.

 

What happens if you’re unable to attend due to illness or other factors beyond control?

If in the unlikely chance that we’re unable to attend on the day of the wedding, we will immediately find a professional replacement photographer from our trusted list of associates.

 

How long can I expect to receive my images after the wedding?

Images typically take 6 weeks to be delivered, although we make every effort to deliver them sooner.

 

Do you offer albums or prints?

Yes, we offer flush-mount leather or cloth-bound albums, prints, canvas prints and more. Please email for more information.

 

Do you offer videography services as well?

We sure do! Check out our video portfolio here.

 

Payment?

We prefer check, cash or Zelle (Quickpay). We also accept Paypal and Credit Cards.

 

What kind of equipment do you use? Do you have back-up equipment in the case of a malfunction?

We shoot with Nikon cameras and use some of the best photography equipment in the industry. Specifically, our cameras of choice are Nikon D850’s with a variety of professional lenses. In addition, we bring a variety of lighting equipment including speed lights and off-camera strobes. In the event of a malfunction, backup cameras, lenses and speed lights are always brought to the event.
