Frequently Asked Questions
What are your rates?
Wedding investments begin at $4900. I'd love to know the details of your wedding day to tailor suit the coverage so you are getting the best out of our photography services. Please contact us for a full interactive rate-sheet.
Can you hold our wedding date?
Yes, provided we’ve received a signed digital contract and retainer. Due to the number of inquiries we receive and the busy nature of wedding season, we cannot hold “potential” dates. If you’re interested in hiring us, please do so ASAP!
How far in advance should we book you?
Most of our clients book us a year or so in advance, while others manage with a few months. Either way, the earlier you inquire, the more likely it is we are available. We take a select few wedding clients in order to give each one the best possible experience – so if you want to be one of them, don’t delay!
How would you describe your style of photography?
We love raw emotion, simple beauty, and natural poses. Flattering light and backgrounds that complement our couples are signature trademarks. We work to bring out the connection between our couples – we won’t interrupt a moment, and we won’t pose situations that already work.

The majority of our images are natural, unposed, and the result of limited intrusion; however, there are times (often discussed well in-advance) where we’ll work with you to create a particular artistic vision.
Okay, we love your style but would love to also have some posed family photos-is this something you do?
Absolutely. We do traditional portraiture at most of our weddings – even the most modern bride still wants the heirlooms that family portraiture creates. It's the one time we'll ask for a list from our couples. Keeping it 'short & sweet' ensures everyone will enjoy the process and get back to fun.
Can you show me a full wedding gallery online?
Of course! Most photographers can manage a few good photos at any event, but consistency is the mark of a professional. It’s important for you to evaluate wedding photographers based on a full wedding gallery. These are major moments and there are no repeats or redos. We take immense pride in being able to produce stellar imagery for each and every wedding we document.
How long have you been photographing weddings?
We were established in 2004, and since then, we have photographed hundreds of weddings in all conditions, snow, rain, indoor, outdoor, tented, etc. Our experience creating magical images in ALL conditions is one of our strongest attributes!
We live out of state. Is that a problem?
Not at all – the majority of our weddings are booked by clients living in a different state. It’s a point of pride that working with us is as easy as possible for these clients. From our initial contact to finalizing the booking process, all of our communication is based on your schedule to better serve you.
How much coverage do we need for our day?
“Wedding time” is quite different from real-time. You might feel that there will be a lot of time set aside, but trust us – the cliche is true, it'll go by in a flash. That being said, each couple is different and so are the needs of their wedding day. We create a tailored timeline for each and every couple we work with so that we can ensure an amazing experience without too little or too much time for coverage.
How many images will we receive from our wedding?
Since each event is unique, the amount of final images you'll receive will vary. Our goal is for you to have images that tell the story of your wedding day without being too overwhelming or leaving you wanting to see more. We curate the images so that you are receiving the absolute best. That being said our average is about 80-120 +/- images per hour of coverage.
How long before our wedding photos are ready?
Final edited images are usually provided within 8 to 10 weeks. However, we work right away to provide a generous sneak peek for you to celebrate with and share with family & friends through social media or directly through your gallery. When the full gallery is ready we'll let you know and then begin our next & final step together - the album.
We’re excited about our wedding album! But how does it work? Do we choose the images or do you?
We've always been about providing the best service possible and when it comes time to design your album there's no difference. Our 'Fine-Art' albums come with a complimentary design layout by us. We believe our couples shouldn't have to work hard to make their own album, that's why they've invested in a professional photographer. Let us do the heavy lifting while collaborating with you so that you end up with the album you've been dreaming of.
Do we receive our digital wedding files?
Yes, of course! Edited wedding day files are included with every collection we offer. They are available via download through your private gallery and if included in your collection, also on USB.
Do you require a meal at the wedding?
Yes. Well-fed photographers are happy photographers and will have the energy to give you their very best. We do not have to be seated with guests however, as long as we're close to the festivities so that we won't miss any spontaneous moments that may occur.
We need vendor suggestions – can you help?
Absolutely. We’ve worked with some of the best wedding professionals around the metro Detroit area and beyond. Once you book us, we will be happy to provide a recommended vendor list made up of the most talented, most comprehensive, and most kind-hearted people we’ve had the pleasure to work with. We also strongly recommend that you consider a planner or event designer. While we can offer vendor suggestions, we can’t plan your wedding for you. Our focus is on capturing your day.
