FAQ

1. What is your photographic style?

We adore creating intimate, romantic images that are natural, clean, filled with light, tell the story, and display the emotions of your wedding day. Throughout most of the day, we document the wedding story as it unfolds - the genuine, authentic moments as they naturally happen, paying close attention to every detail of the day.

During portraits, we give plenty of directions to help you both feel at ease! We help you pose comfortably and confidently - never stiff or cheesy. We aim to create unique, beautiful images of the two of you that are candid and natural, showcasing your true emotions and love for one another!

2. What is delivered?

You receive all of the hand-edited files in high resolution JPEG format. These are easily downloaded via an online gallery. Feel free to take a look at the sample galleries below to get an idea about what those look like. 

3. Do I need a shot list?

Nope! About 2 months before the wedding, you will receive a questionnaire filled with everything we need to know about your timeline and wedding details! It also includes tips and information that you can use as you continue to plan for your wedding. The only list we ask for is the family photo variations!

4. What are the costs for travel? 

We are based in southeast Michigan, and frequently travel for our incredible clients! Events over a 30 mile radius from 48170 zip code will require a small mileage fee (U.S. standard mileage rate). If it requires a flight, travel costs will be customized depending on the specifics of your location, however it’s generally 2 nights hotel and round trip flight out of DTW airport. 

5. When do I receive my photos?

For engagement sessions, no later than 4 weeks, and for weddings, no later than 8 weeks. 


Engagement Sessions!

Whenever possible, we love photographing couples before their big day! It really helps all of us get to know each other in a relaxed setting, and most of all, helps you become comfortable in front of the camera! Often couples will express concern that they are uncomfortable posing for photos, and having an engagement session will truly allow you take away these worries on your wedding day. We have our couples pick locations that are special to them (especially unique and adventurous places!), so that you have photos of yourselves where you feel relaxed and authentic! Make a date out of it, and enjoy this special time in your lives together!

  • What does it include?
    • These sessions are very flexible - we work with you guys to create a session that is as relaxed or as adventurous as you'd like
    • Complimentary travel all over the state of Michigan! We also love traveling to YOU! Many of our couples live out-of-state and we often will travel to them for their engagement sessions! Travel fees for this are very affordable because we LOVE adventures! :)
    • Typically we shoot for about 2 hours at a variety of locations - however it really varies based on the location and couple
  • See below for a few of our fun adventures! :)
