We strive for images that tell the entire story of your wedding. This is normally done by shooting in a photo-journalistic style, which is also referred to as a “candid” style. Most of our photos are natural, just as the moment happened. It’s important to us that the wedding flows naturally. We are always respectful and try to be friendly and fun when interacting with you or your guests; but also continually staying immersed in everything that is happening around us. This is how we capture unique moments that our clients love. In addition to capturing the candid photos, we also understand the importance of family portraits. This is why we are always sure to photograph the formals with distant relatives and family members you hardly see. Lastly, during our shoots we make plenty of time for creating those unique images of the bride and groom that everyone yearns for. Whether it’s on the beach, in the mountains, or down an abandoned alley way, our photos capture the essence of the awesome relationship you two have built together.
Using the highest quality gear is the way we achieve our crisp and clean photographs, even when the lighting is very dim, like a dark reception hall. Professional Canon Digital SLRs combined with a variety of special lens, allow us to capture the moments that mean the most to you, regardless of the situation. To ensure maximum safety against equipment failure, we always bring 2 or more cameras and 5 or more lenses to each wedding, this way we have a backup if something fails. For added protection of your photos, we keep the original images safely backed up for 2 or more years.
You own the full rights to your wedding and engagement images. This means that you can print, email, and upload to Facebook as much as you want, you are under no obligation to order photos through us. However if you’d like to, we have professional printing labs available that produce better results than traditional consumer labs like Wal-Mart or ShutterFly.
Editing Process and Color Correcting
During a wedding we take thousands of images to ensure that we capture everything. Once we return to the computer, immediately your entire wedding photos are backed up to multiple hard drives. Once that is complete, we began to edit out all of the bad photos such as blinks and open mouth shots. Next, we go through again to adjust the tone and saturation; brightness and contrast; and remove distracting elements from your photographs. This entire process takes many hours from beginning to end, but results in the superior product you desire.
Many of our clients love black and white photographs, for this reason, we try to shoot a variety in black and white as well as color. Because of the nature of digital images, any photo can be converted to black and white, or back to color at anytime. After you receive your images, simply let us know which photo you want converted and we can quickly send it to you.
