How would you describe your style
We believe that wedding photography is all about capturing your personality and story. Our photography style leans toward being photojournalistic and candid with a good dash of adventure. Our editing style consists of rich, earthly colors inspired by nature, and beautiful skin tones with a slight taste of film. We try to avoid trends and fads while focusing on capturing and presenting timeless, lasting photographs that you and your legacy will treasure for more than a lifetime.
Do you offer "standard" wedding photographs
We are purposely non-traditional wedding photographers, but we do include family portraits and a few standard classics that you can give to grandma.
Do you do hourly or full day coverage?
We don’t believe in the 6, 8, or 10 hour packages. Our goal is to capture and create a beautiful narrative of your wedding day story and provide you an amazing experience! You shouldn’t be worrying about when your photographers will be leaving and what special details might get missed. That is why we offer full day coverage. We will even help you craft the perfect wedding day schedule and keep everything on time.
Do we get printing rights to our wedding photographs?
Absolutely! We want you to have, use, and enjoy your wedding photography! From social media to mugs and murals! Go crazy! Our hearts cry a bit when people invest in amazing photography and then just leave them on a computer or closet shelf!
Where are you based?
We are based in the Greater Cleveland, Northeast Ohio area and regularly travel throughout the United States for amazing weddings and adventures. The bulk of our travels is in West Virginia, New York, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Arizona and the Sierras.
How Many Weddings Have you Photographed?
Brian and Joelle and our team have EACH photographed well over 100 weddings. We have the experience to handle every situation with perfection, but are fresh enough to be still passionately in love with what we do… capturing your wedding day story.
Do you have backup equipment?
Yes, yes and YES! Come sun, rain, hail or forest fire, we have you covered (Montana and Colorado call that a normal summer afternoon). We all use high-end, industry standard camera, lenses, on and off camera lighting and backups of everything. After your wedding, we are religious about protecting your photographs. We meet and exceed IT data safety standards.
How many photos do you deliver?
Every couple and every story is different. We do not limit the amount of photographs we take and give to you. Typical is between 500-800.
Ok, we are sold! how do we book you?
First we want to meet you and hear your story at either our studio or via video chat. We want to fall in love with our couples as much as we what them to fall in love with us and our craft. To lock in your date, a signed contract and a 50% deposit is required. The remainder is due one month before the wedding (so we are not shuffling money around last minute).
What happens if you get sick or hurt?
First, we live a very healthy lifestyle with lots of exercise and eat mostly locally grown, organic food. Our family’s adventures are safe (we gave us the dream of climbing 5.14 on trad). Second, if a bus hit us, we have an amazing team and a fantastic network of kick-butt photographers both locally and nationally.
Do you book yourself for more than one wedding per day?
One team, per wedding, per day. Period.
Do you charge for travel?
Our local radius for wedding photography is Cleveland, Akron, Columbus, Youngstown, Pittsburg, Toledo, and Erie, PA. If you are planning a mountaintop elopement or a super epic, adventurous wedding, there is often little to no travel fees.
