WHAT SETS YOU TWO APART FROM YOUR COMPETITION?
We are passionate about your entire wedding experience, not just the photography. For us, when you have an amazing wedding day and we get to be a part of sharing it with you, that is deeply fulfilling for us. We have an open door policy for any wedding related questions our brides might have. We don't expect you to know the ins and outs of wedding preparation, so we are open to help in whatever capacity we can; that means we have coffee dates for planning and answering questions, and phone calls to talk over details and give advice, and double dates for fun!
Another aspect that sets us apart is our strong desire to connect with our clients on a deeper level. We want to know everything about you and build a relationship with you that goes deeper than just your wedding photos. We feel like we cannot truly capture your hearts and your relationship unless we know you like friends. We love double dates, coffee dates, lots of emailing... just about any form of communication with you whether its about the wedding or not! Its all about "connection" with us.
DO YOU ONLY ACCEPT A CERTAIN NUMBER OF WEDDINGS A YEAR?
No, and yes :). Although we do not have a cutoff limit to how many weddings we shoot, we do not move forward with every wedding inquiry we receive. We LOVE every couple that we work with which makes us absolutely love our job! Because of this, if we feel that we aren't the right fit for a particular client, we point them in a better direction. There are many different photographic styles, so if a couple tells us they want a lot of posed images or that artistic photography isn't high on their list of 'must haves', we point them in the direction of a photographer that would better suit their needs.
WHAT KIND OF CLIENTS DO YOU WANT TO ATTRACT?
We desire clients who want a connection with us just as much as we want a connection with them. After all, how can we truly capture raw emotions on your wedding day if we don't know you well? We also desire clients who are passionate about their relationship and are excited about MARRIAGE and not just the wedding day. We are extremely pro-marriage and love to celebrate that with our clients! Those kinds of clients are truly the HAPPY kind!
We also desire clients who put photography on the top of the list because it's the ONLY thing left after the wedding day. Tangible memories that you adore are a MUST.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Our packages start at $4500.00 for 2 photographers. All packages include a high-resolution disc of your edited images and print release. Most packages also include a complimentary engagement session. Please contact us for more detailed packages and other options.
WHAT DO YOU SHOOT WITH?
We have added quite a lot of gear over the years! Our go-to equipment includes a few Canon 5d I and II bodies, a bunch of Canon L lenses, some Canon Speedlites and a few other odds and ends. All the good stuff. :)
ARE WE GUARANTEED BOTH ANDREW & EMILYJADE?
We shoot together as often as possible as we LOVE being together and capturing wedding days actually sparks our own marriage. Its the best! We do only guarantee Andrew and a second photographer on most of our wedding packages. EmilyJade is the 2nd photographer about 90% of the time, but we do have associate photographers on staff who shoot with Andrew as well. Andrew shoots all engagement sessions solo unless otherwise specified.
DO YOU OFFER ADVICE DURING THE WEDDING PLANNING PROCESS?
Absolutely! We are very hands on! We like to plan your wedding day time line for you, we offer vendor recommendations for our favorites in the wedding industry, and we even run a "Happy Bride" segment on our Blog with lots of great advice for your planning process. Check it out at:
