We believe that weddings are a social celebration of a very sacred commitment. We feel honored to be participants in every wedding we shoot and treat both the day and the people involved with the highest level of respect. Most of all, weddings are a day filled with beauty and love that emerges effortlessly. We believe our job is to capture that moment in the most authentic way - unobtrusively, honestly, joyfully.
We are a cutting edge photography studio, offering the most recent advances in the photography field. We are always well versed in the latest wedding trends and bride preferences. Our approach is contemporary and always in the best of taste. We strive for the perfect combination of timeless elegance and fresh style.
Our focus is on journalistic style photography. We limit the number of posed and staged photographs and try instead to highlight the laughter, tears, and passion that you and your guests will be feeling without our heavy involvement. We understand that each couple is unique in their style, personality, and biography and strive to produce images that reflect that individuality. The era of assembly line coverage and common, ordinary albums is over. We understand our clients needs for exclusive, classic products and exceed their expectations. We represent the grace, distinction, and style that is possible in wedding photography.
How would you describe your style?
Our style is really a hybrid. We have so many inspirations that come from so many different places and try to implement them in our images. We love the raw emotion of photojournalism and the seductive, mysterious look of fashion photography. In short, our style is something we like to call "fashion photojournalism". We believe in romantic lighting, incredible backgrounds and choosing locations very carefully. As far as our photojournalistic side-we never interrupt a moment. We never pose situations that are already so perfect on their own. We are an observer most of the time with very limited intrusion only when it is desired to achieve a particualar artistic vision. Ninety percent of our images are completely natural and un-posed.
We love your style but would love to have some traditional portraiture. Is this something you do?
We do traditional portraiture at most of our weddings. Even the most modern brides still want the heirlooms that family portraiture creates. We do not, however, conduct portrait sessions in a traditional way. Instead, they are very loose, fun, and show off your personality. We will spend only 20 to 45 minutes on any posed photographs out of a typical 9 hour day.
Do you shoot with film or digital?
We are 100 percent digital. The creative latitude that digital gives is beyond compare. When we shoot, we not only shoot for the moment, but have a clear vision of what the finished image will look like. By shooting digitally, the possibilities are limitless! And yes, the quality of digital is as good as film - usually better.
I'm having a religious ceremony. Are you familiar with the events that will take place?
We have been blessed to have photographed many, many different types of weddings. We've documented Catholic, Jewish, Episcopalian, and Christian ceremonies. If you are having a wedding that is not listed here, we would absolutely love to learn all about the customs and events. We are always learning!
