Frequently Asked Questions
What's your photography style?
We believe that capturing your wedding day as it unfolds is the best way to document it for you. That is the reason that we specialize in photographing moments instead of staging them. We only make adjustments and pose people during group photos of families to ensure that everyone in the image looks good.
How many hours of photography coverage should we get?
If you would like us to start when you are getting ready, we recommend purchasing at least eight hours of coverage. But we have several packages to choose from and are also always happy to custom-make one that fits your individual needs.
Do you offer a second photographer with your packages?
We normally work together as a husband-and-wife team, so most of our packages include two photographers.
Why should we get a second photographer?
Having a second person there allows us to take pictures from another angle. While one photographer is up front during the ceremony, the other usually hangs backs and gets wider shots. And during the getting-ready process, one takes images of the bride while the other captures the groom and his groomsmen.
How many photos will we receive and in what format?
We aim to deliver 75-100 photos per hour, and our turnaround time for delivering the images is 90 days. When the photos are ready, you will receive an online, password-protected gallery with your edited pictures. You will be able to download high-resolution versions from there.
What about sneak peeks and blogs?
We will send you a sneak peak and write a blog post within a couple of weeks of your wedding.
Do I have printing rights?
Yes, you can print your images for your own private use. When we deliver the gallery, we include a print release.
Do we have copyright?
No, you do not own the copyright. But with the print release, you will not even need it! It allows you to make unlimited prints for your own personal use. The only restriction is that you cannot sell the images or use them for any kind of commercial purpose.
Should we do an engagement session?
That is really up to you! But engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know each other and our shooting style. It might also help you get more comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding. And most importantly, it will be another opportunity for you to get beautiful professional photos!
Do your packages include engagement sessions?
Unfortunately, they do not. But we have a standard engagement option in our a la carte menu. We are always happy to design the wedding photography package that is right for you.
We are having a destination wedding! Do you travel?
Sí, ja, kyllä and oui! We love traveling for weddings and have photographed weddings in international destinations and in American cities outside the DC metro area.
What other kinds of sessions do you offer?
Apart from weddings, we offer engagement, bridal, branding portrait and lifestyle sessions. Get in touch with us if you would like more information on packages and pricing!
We love your work! How do we book you?
