FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you based and do you travel for weddings?
We are based in Monterey, CA however we love to travel near and far! Ask us for a travel quote when you send your enquiry through.
How do you describe your style?
Our style is documentary photography through a romantic lens. We capture your day through authentic and honest moments with an expressive, editorial eye, creating timeless photographs. We aim to capture not only the key moments, but the emotion and energy that was present !
Do you prefer natural light or flash photography?
I consider myself a natural light photographer. Natural light helps preserve the real mood and feeling of the day and the environments. We like to work closely with your venue and stylist to ensure that all of the lighting for your reception is well planned as people often forget how important lighting is.
Of course we do use flash when required in dark lighting scenarios and for those fun party shots on the dance floor.
What is your approach on the day?
We are very relaxed photographers and we strive to ensure that you have a memorable day celebrating with your loved ones. Ultimately we’d like you to forget that we are even there. For the vast majority of your day we will capture images in a completely candid and natural manner. During your portrait time we will direct you towards the best light (but without asking you to pose!) allowing your day to unfold naturally.
How far in advance should we consider booking you?
As soon as you have your date locked in! We receive inquiries many months and often years in advance, so the sooner you contact us the greater your chances that we will be available for your date!
Are your photographs digital or film?
We are digital photographers.
Not comfortable in front of the camera?
You’re not alone! This is a comment that we hear a lot and we completely understand! We work hard to be as unobtrusive as possible so that you are not even aware of us and our cameras. This style of shooting creates a relaxed and natural day (for you) and a more authentic, beautifully photographic result. During the portrait time your job is simply to concentrate on how much you love one another, and we will document the rest! We may give you some simple instructions just to get you started, but then we will step back and let the magic unfold before our lens.
Do you offer vendor recommendations?
Yes! We have a selection of preferred vendors (videographers, florists, beauty stylists, etc) throughout California and beyond.
