What is your speciality?

Does a client need to schedule an appointment?
Yes , We love to meet up for our initial consultation, but definitely not a requirement. Also, we do ask that clients email us dates for their engagement session whenever they are wanting them to be done.
Do you provide your services in other cities or countries?
Do you have replacement on the D-Day in the off chance you become unavailable?
Yes , If we become unavailable for whatever reason on your wedding date after the contract has been completed, we will find a replacement for you. All details of this situation appear in our wedding contract to protect both parties.
Will you provide all the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
No , We will give all the final images, but we don't give out every single image that was taken as we take multiple shots of each event/pose. Typically, for a wedding, we try to give a final image count of between 300-500 images to the client.
How do you usually direct the couple during a photoshoot?
Depends on the clients. Some posing comes naturally, others need more direction which we are happy to give. A lot of times the more fun you have the less the image looks too posed so we don't like to give too much direction because we want every image to look as natural as possible!
What rate do you usually charge at?
How soon after the event will the proof be ready for review?
Social Media previews are completed within 1-2 weeks. Final galleries are available within 8-12 weeks depending on which season we are in.
How far in advance should your client contact you?
We recommend to contact us as soon as you know when your wedding date is. Photographers are one of the main vendors so it's important to have this done after you get your venues booked as we sometimes book over 12 months out.
What makes your services unique?
We absolutely love being a part of weddings and experiencing all the joy and love that everyone shares during these events. Our job is to capture that feeling and turn it into a story so that you can look back at your wedding 50 years from now and remember every single second of it.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, is it a requisite for the client to provide your meal?
We require a dinner be provided at the reception for us. Breaks are only taken if enough time would be allotted, but we are always ready to begin shooting when needed.
What payment systems are available for your business?
PayPal, Cheques, Cash
What is your payment terms?
$400 plus tax non-refundable retainer fee due at time of contract signing to hold wedding date. 50% of remaining balance plus tax due 4 months prior to the wedding and the remainder balance plus tax due 1 month prior to the wedding.
When was your business established?
How long does it take for the client to receive the final product?
We aim for the engagement session to be done within 4-6 weeks and wedding images within 8-12 weeks.
Are you available to shoot after hours?
Yes , Additional coverage is charged at a rate of $60 per hour
What is a digital gallery?
A digital gallery is our version of a CD or flashdrive. It is a much faster way to send the final images to a client versus mailing a CD or a flashdrive to the client. Clients can download every final image to their own personal computer or flashdrive once it becomes available and print those images wherever they choose. These do expire after 90 days, but before we delete them, we make sure that each client has all the images that they want.
