Wedding Photography Pricing. During your pre-wedding consultation, we like to hear your ideas and know your expectations. We want to showcase every detail of your special day. What can we do to make it better? We are confident that you will find the package that meets your needs.

We have professional liability insurance up to $2,000,000 (includes Third Party Property Damage at same limit)
Would you like to change something? Add more items, take off something? We can totally do that

You have probably heard: “we will send a tailored quote” or “after you consultation, we will determine the price”.
Well, we don’t do that. We are not only working professionals, we are also consumers and clients of different services like you and we know how annoying is not to know how much are you investing, without asking tons of questions and making sure they’re not extra charges.

With us, you know from the very beginning.
There’s not hidden fees in the small fine print. We are confident that our packages are priced fairly.
We want to be a solution for you and not a headache.

STYLE

Let me start by saying that we appreciate spontaneity. Laughs, nervous smiles, tears, kids running around and hiding under tables, mother in-law crying, father of the bride kissing his daughter in the aisle, and all these little details that make every wedding personal and unique.

We can be unobtrusive during the whole wedding if you want us to be. As silent ninjas, we will camouflage with the walls and you won’t even know we were there hunting for those special moments; BUT what IF those moments just don’t happen or they don’t look like you imagined they would?

We believe that as professional photographers and videographers we are there not only to capture those moments (that should be a given for any professional), but part of our mission is to enhance moments and experience, to take those moments and polish them to become exceptional.

Basically, capture the natural magic on your wedding day and create magic of our own.

If we need to describe our style, it will be contemporary fashion. Our goal is to create a simple, yet complex blend of soul, drama, imagination and technical skill.

One thing that we have learned is that direction is very important. It isn’t bad if you don’t know “what to do with your hands”, “should you smile”, “where are you supposed to look”, etc. We want you to be you, but as a director with their lead actors in a movie, it is our job to get the best of you.

To accomplish those special moments we need time, for  2018, we are changing the way our packages work. We don’t want to be constrained by time anymore, so we are concentrating on full days of coverage.

Planning specifically around your schedule, from getting ready until the party starts. We aim to have enough time with you, to be that “memory machine” to capture, preserve and give you the best memories.

TIMELINE

And after years of shooting weddings of all sizes and shapes, we have created our ideal schedule for the day photo/video-graphically speaking (of course times are just relative and assuming the ceremony is the only thing we can’t move around).

??:00 Start makeup and hair.

Totally depends on how many bridesmaids you have, how elaborate your makeup is, etc. etc. But this always takes one extra hour than what you usually plan, so start as early as you can; you don’t need us for this part since nobody likes pictures without makeup!!!

We arrive…

10:30 The details. 
Jewelry, rings, dress, shoes, bouquet, bride and groom accessories and basically all those details that you have.

* Ideal time allotment – 60 minutes

* Ideal time of the day – Morning

* Ideal location – Bridal suite or hotel suite

Advice – Having at least an hour for details ensures that we have plenty of time to get that perfect photo of the dress, rings, bouquets, and the other details of the day.  There are times when a hotel room is too crowded or simply unappealing for pictures; we have to take the dress all the way down to the lobby or even outside. This can take some extra time, but as you can see from the results, it’s well worth the additional work.

11:30 Everyone’s hair and makeup finished (HARD STOP).

By this time all the makeup SHOULD be done, and we will just pretend, so we can create pictures without having to rush.

12:00 Dress on and final touches.

Time for silly pictures with your bridesmaids :)

* Ideal time allotment – 60 minutes

* Ideal time of the day – Early afternoon

* Ideal location – Bridal suite or hotel suite

Advice – Having an hour is ideal for “getting ready” pictures. During this time, we are getting close ups of the makeup and hair as well the candid moments of the bridesmaids and groomsmen getting ready for the day. Keep in mind that these are some of the most emotional and fun times of the day, so you don’t want to cut it short and miss some of it.

The lead shooter will be with the bride while the second shooter will be with the groom. While it doesn’t take guys an hour to get dressed, there are still tons of great moments between the groom and his family and friends.

1:00 First look; Bride and Groom portraits.

This is an optional step, it takes away from the tension of the ceremony but depends if you want to be seeing each other or not before the ceremony (the first look doesn’t take away the magic; it simply gives you many more unique moments of your day to experience), otherwise we would do individual portraits of the Bride and Groom.


1:30 Leaving to the venue.

Always allow for delays; you should be arriving at your venue at least 15min before ceremony starts.

2:30 Ceremony begins.

Just enjoy it, we got you covered!!!

3:00 Ceremony ends.

Relative. Since ceremonies go from 15 min to religious ones over one hour.

3:00 Formals (family portraits).

Gather all the people you want to have a picture with or gather everyone!!!


* Ideal time allotment – 30-45 minutes

* Ideal time of the day – Morning or afternoon (post ceremony)

* Ideal location – Ceremony site

Advice – Formals should take around 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of your family and the number of guests.

Plan on 2 minutes per group on average.  For example, if you have 10 groups, schedule in a 20 minute time slot.

Some couples have decided that they want a picture with all guests while others have decided that they only want pictures with selected VIPs to save time. We recommend something in between.

We also recommend being very organized, with a list of groups and helpers from each side of the family to help round people up.

4:00 Bridal party pictures.

There’s a reason why these people are in there with you.

* Ideal time allotment – 30 minutes

* Ideal time of the day – Morning or afternoon

* Ideal location -Venue lobby, venue garden, beach, park, off-site location

Advice – Wedding party photos should be around 20 to 30 minutes. During this time, we get a variety of shots in a variety of poses. We start off with the basic as classic photos focused on great expressions and lighting. Then we move into a set of fun and creative shots. Finally, we know how much your wedding party means to you, so we are sure to get pictures with you and each one of your bridesmaids or groomsmen individually.

4:30 The couple.

Magic time!!!



Advice – Couple session should be around 1.5/2 hours and should take place ideally 30 minutes before sunset; this is the best time in terms of lighting. It also allows us to capture the awesome scenic shots with colourful skies. If your wedding is in downtown or in an area with tall buildings, it’s not as important for us to have this specific time frame (although it still helps). However, if you booked your venue because of the spectacular view of the ocean or the gorgeous vines in the winery, it’s essential to follow this advice in your timeline.

We specialize in Off Camera Flash (OCF). We blend the ambient light with flash to create a surreal contemporary fashion style which is signature in our work.

6:30 Grand Entrance to Reception.

Coming back to the venue.

6:45 Cake cutting.

I suggest getting this done right away and crossing it off your list.

7:00 Dinner.

Let’s grab a bite :)

This is only the real downtime we have during the day. Photographs of people while they are eating aren’t so flattering so we take this opportunity to eat too. We ask to be seated in the same room that the reception is happening (not necessarily with the guests but in the same room) so if something interesting happens, we can just run and capture it.

We know that some venues charge $40 or more per person for their buffet menu, so feel free to order something else for us from their regular menu (some venues even have vendor specials). No alcohol needed, we don’t drink while we work.

8:00 Speeches.

Start the speeches close to the end of the dinner, people are still in their seats and will listen carefully to what other have to say.

8:30 Reception sneak out.

What? You didn’t know we can make magic at night?? :)





* Ideal time allotment – 30 minutes

* Ideal time of the day – Dusk to night time

* Ideal location – Areas with interesting lights, fountains, cityscapes and mirrors

Advice – During the reception, please plan on sneaking out for a couple of night shots. We only need 20-30 minutes, as we understand the importance of being a good host. However, this time is important if you appreciate the night photography that we deliver. The ideal time for this is right after the speeches when everything “formal” is done and everyone is staring to head to the bar.

9:00 First dance/party.

Father/Bride dance, Mother/Groom dance and couple’s first dance. Very self explanatory.

10:00 Tear down/Departure.

We would love to stay and party with you but we have to start processing your pictures ASAP. So after we have enough party/dance shoots, it’s time for us to leave.

STORY

The secret sauce of editing.

What happens next?

We shoot RAW files which is an undeveloped format with straight information from the camera, no adjustments have been made. They look like this in your browser, smart phone, TV, tablet or computer:

Raw-Image-Format-Files-are-now-supported-in-Windows-7-Explorer Hey that’s just an icon!!?? Exactly. RAW files are unusable until processed with an editing program. What you will receive are high resolution JPG files ready to print and share.

We select and carefully edit your pictures ONE by ONE. We are proud to say that we don’t outsource any of our editing. Our commitment to you extends well beyond your wedding day. Every single image gets edited in-house before you receive them. Yes, it’s a lot of work editing hundreds of pictures but we want to make sure that you receive the best possible.
Allow between 5-6 weeks for the final product to be ready.

We are just as interested as you are in having your photos be beautiful and memorable. We spend hours making sure you receive only the best ones.

Photoshop??

Lots of good and bad it is being said about Photoshop manipulations, we understand that you want to look the best possible on your wedding day, but sometimes there’s just not enough time to diet, work out, getting a skin exfoliation or even sleeping. What if you’re not having a good hair day or your makeup is just falling apart?? So we utilize Photoshop to enhance reality but never fake it.

While it will be very expensive for you having us Photoshop every single picture, we do Photoshop select ones when imperfections are showing a little more than you’ll like seeing. But essentially the one you see in your pictures is the real you (maybe with a little bit of help)
