Frequently Asked Questions

I have a family! Do you do anything besides weddings?

Kaylee here - Absolutely. I have a passion for capturing FAMILY, as it is. If you're a parent, then you know that children are possibly the most tangible, breathtaking displays of love and joy... and they’re probably wild and crazy too. The good news is, I used to nanny for a family of six, so kids don't phase me! Sometimes it bothers parents when their kids aren’t looking right at me and smiling perfectly, but I promise it doesn’t even need to be YOUR stress to take on. To make things easy, I offer to come to your house or to your local park - and spend about 20-30 minutes with you. That's probably about all the kids can handle, and then we can break out some oreos + milk, or play on the swing-set. It's just important to me that you don't miss out on their hullabaloo by being too busy. In our opinion, we all need to lock those memories down!

How many weddings have you shot?

We have worked with more than 100 couples! Each year, we change our goals and numbers around, but it's been almost 4 years now, and 30 per year is the number we find works best for "life balance," or whatever.

How many images do you provide?

weddings:

3-4 Hr. Package: 250+ photos
6 Hr. Package: 400+ photos
8 Hr. Package: 600+ photos

Engagement + Family sessions:

100 photos

When and how will we get our images?

ASAP. We hate sitting on images, so for engagement and family sessions, it's 1-2 weeks. Weddings are delivered in 4-6 weeks. You'll get them in a clean and easy online gallery. You can share it with anyone, easily post to Facebook, order prints, pick your favorites for albums... USBs suck, they're just so easy to loose. This way, it's instant, and backed up for at least 5 years.

How much is the retainer?

$500. It's the non refundable portion and paired with the contract, gets your date secured.

Can I see a full gallery?

YESSSS. Ask us! Is there one in particular? We're happy to show off a full day!

Do you travel?

Yes again! We love traveling almost as much as we love being home. (Thank God for airplanes and airbnb!) We do charge to cover our travel, but we're thrifty. Just ask!

Do you have insurance?

Yes. We have liability and gear insurance.

What happens if you get sick on my wedding day? (Or there's a HURRICANE.)

It has happened. We attempt to take REAL good care of our bodies, but obviously really sick is really sick, right? We have a strong network of 3-5 photographers, ready to back us up if needed. We're there for them, they're there for us. The community MATTERS to us, so those relationships are real. We'll always let you know ahead of time if shooting situations change.

Now when it comes to hurricane season... If you read carefully, our contract allows us to evacuate and leave a week before your wedding. YES, even if you decide to be crazy risky and have your windy + wild outdoor beach wedding anyway. We hate to be cutthroat, but if it comes down to such a hard decision, we are going to protect our home, family, and business' livelihood before we risk driving out in hurricane force winds. If you’re a local, then you remember: Irma was scary.

We're mega awkward in front of the camera... HELP.

SO ARE WE. Hi, welcome to the club. As it turns out, no one is really that great in front of the camera... even models need guidance sometimes. Since we're so uncomfortable in front of the camera, we really have put a good bit of time into learning good, technical, visually pleasing posing. We'll guide you through a few basic poses and you'll realize that it's really a lot of looking at us, looking at each other, telling jokes, and laughing at us be goofs. To see a small taste of what a wedding day would feel like, we definitely recommend hitting up an engagement session. You'll catch on to the poses, we'll catch on to your personalities, and both of us will feel a lot more comfy about pulling out some quotes from the best tv shows or referencing your favorite movie on the wedding day.
