Take a look at our gallery below, which includes weddings shot from all over the U.S. This is only a sample of our work that displays our style and skills. Weddings are more difficult to photograph due to lack of control of lighting conditions, number of people to photograph, and unexpected situations. We have experience dealing with a hairstylist refusing to show up the morning of the wedding, the dress being too large because of alteration issues or sudden weight loos caused by wedding preparations stress, and relatives getting anxious about photos they specifically want us to take. We've seen it all, and you can be confident we are prepared to handle most situations.
Our job is not simple and many underestimate the hard work of photographers, but we know what it requires to achieve those shots you have been dreaming about since you were a kid. We have the right tools for the job - professional grade equipment, negotiating skills (for that Uncle that you really did not want to invite, but your Mom told you that you had to - we got it covered), the ability to find and evaluate the light and use both controlled light sources and ambient a.k.a available light to produce beautiful photos. Whew! Trust us, we love to talk technicalities, but we know that you want results and that is what we deliver.
Post-processing is incredibly important to be able to take a dull photo and turn it into something magical and worth hanging on your wall. We have an extensive background in understanding the technical aspects of taking a proper photo at the location, and then post-process it in our studio using professional grade software. Each digital negative is treated with utmost care and artistic eye.
At some point we had our equipment listed here, but we decided to remove it. Why? The same reason that a hungry person at a restaurant does not ask the chef what tools and cooking utensils they used to prepare the delicious meal they are about to eat! Our equipment is only a tool. We used these tools to achieve the results our artistic eye desires.
In general, we use medium format cameras and high quality lenses, with a good understanding of how they function, many hours of acquired knowledge about lighting and how to manipulated it to make it flattering, high end software for post processing the final images and so much more! For weddings we often shoot with 2 photographers utilizing different camera bodies and lenses to ensure we do not miss those important moments of celebration. But most importantly we have something you cannot buy - an artistic and creative eye for detail and a deep passion for people!
