The experience

Experience.is.everything. When booking with us it's not just the wedding day experience, we are with you from start of wedding prep to final day delivery, and beyond.  From getting to know each other, to preparation guides, sample timelines, tricks + tips, to delivery, we believe in communication. We want you to know that we are on it because the day of your wedding you should be fully immersed in that energy. We want you to feel calm and comfortable knowing that because of our relationship and communication leading up to the big day has enabled all of us to just dive right into that wedding day bliss.

Our job as cinematographers and photographers is to not only document the day but when it's all over, to carefully go through the hours of film and photos as if they were our own. Our relationship spans before your wedding and after. We spend weeks crafting your memories into heirloom keepsakes for you to enjoy for the rest of your lives. When you receive your film and photo galleries we want you to be transported right back to that very moment in time. From the ambiance of the birds chirping, waves crashing, and wind blowing the trees. To the looks exchanged, to speeches and toasts, the epic drone views, and ALL the love.

We believe it is important to document what you've worked so hard for, but also LIVED so hard for. All the memories, family, friendships, and togetherness leading up to this day, it is truly a once in a lifetime celebration.

" This video was perfect in every way: the quality, the editing, the music, the footage, the feeling the film evokes, 
EVERYTHING. "

" The videos that they delivered to us were stunning and captured the energy of our wedding perfectly as well as the beautiful scenery of our location, blending everything together amazingly to help us relive the happiest day of our lives over and over again! "

" We are beyond thrilled with their work and believe they were able to capture so many genuine moments because of how comfortable they made everyone around them feel. "

“ The entire day was such a blur and they were able to capture every single detail- many of which both of us overlooked or forgot. I could never image not having a video to watch and reflect upon after the wedding- we laughed, we cried, and we relived the best day of our lives thanks to these two amazing humans. "

THE PROCESS

The Process

+ HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU SEND?

We come from a long line of makers, artists, directors, camera operators, show creators, and all sorts of creative blood runs through our veins. We picked up cameras over ten years ago and haven’t put them down since. The love of visuals and storytelling really began in college while we were getting our BFA’s in Communication and Media Studies. Not only were we learning the technical stuff but also the ways to really engage the real, raw, and human side to authentic storytelling.

+ HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THIS?

Get in touch and let’s reserve that date! We book anywhere from 6 to 18+ months out. If you know you want us, we highly recommend booking as soon as you are able. Once booked, then comes the fun stuff- THE PLANNING!

+ HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?

If you’re getting married, we will be there! We have traveled all over the world and would be happy to go the distance for your wedding. From the Icelandic summer sun to the slopes of the British Columbia, we want to be there for you.

+ DO YOU TRAVEL?

We always have at least two people at a wedding. We like to be able to provide full coverage so nothing is missed. The day goes by so fast and things shift so we like to be able to have wiggle room when and if it comes down to it, so we feel two professionals is best.

+ DO I NEED AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

While an engagement session isn’t necessary, they definitely are helpful and dare I say, FUN! We love getting you behind our lens because not only do you get a taste of the epicness of professional photos, but also we get to know you and you get to know us. An engagement session is a great way to get comfortable for the big day, practice snuggling, and being in the moment. PLUS you get awesome photographs for your save-the-dates, invites, and prints for your home.

+ ARE YOU INSURED?

Very important question. YES, we are fully insured. If your venue needs a certificate, we would be happy to provide it. 

+ DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

Yes, we do! Traditional payments are 33% due at the time of booking (within the week) and the final 67% is due 30 days prior to your wedding day. If you are wanting to do the payment plan we can split the payment schedule into 1/3’s or even ¼’s if that works best for you. Whatever you need, you got it!
