Weddings

Our Philosophy

We believe everyone should have great images from their wedding and still be able to enjoy the day.  We feel every couple is unique and we aim to showcase their personalities and style through their images.  Our goal is to tell the story of you and your day and be your memories.

We make each collection of wedding images their own by finding inspiration in our clients, the venue(s) they’ve chosen & the style of the details they’ve picked.  By doing this, we capture the individuality of YOUR wedding.

We do not take this responsibility lightly. We are deeply humbled when someone decides they want us to capture the most important day in their lives. We have had the pleasure of photographing numerous cultural and religious ceremonies and traditions, and love watching our couples meld their unique faiths.

Our Process

In capturing a wedding, it’s important for us to not make the day about us.  We are there to tell the story of your day and do that 90% of the time by being discrete, not attracting attention to ourselves, letting you and your guests feel comfortable and not made to feel like you’re being photographed, so we can get you at your most natural.  We have been called “ninja’s” and our best compliment has been “How did you get all those images? We barely noticed you were there!!”. The other 10% of our time is working with our couples & their families to get some stellar portraits. 

We love meeting with our clients to help them design packages that meet all their needs and wants. Our pre-designed packages are just a starting point. Meeting in person is great, but we understand hectic schedules and planning from afar. We are happy to communicate by Skype (to get to know you), and phone or email.

We do not subcontract out weddings. Jen or Nate will be your lead photographer and we bring a second photographer with us. If we both happen to be available on your wedding day, then you’ll get us both.

Destinations

Have camera will travel. We love shooting destination weddings.  We are able to fully submerse ourselves with your families for a weekend and end up being part of the family! We have covered all sorts of destination weddings from all over the world. We have special weekend packages so we can cover all the events that go along with a destination wedding weekend and are of course happy to customize a package to meet your needs. We’ll be happy to give you a quote once we’ve discussed your wedding needs. Our bags are packed – give us your details! 

South Asian Weddings

After photographing our first South Asian wedding in 2005, we were hooked. The colors, the traditions, the snacks during the ceremony… we were in love. We have covered a number of different religious ceremonies including Hindi & Sikh and celebrations like Sangeets & Mehendi. We’re able to customize any package you need, from 1 day to multi day celebrations.

Engagements

Engagement sessions are our way of “dating” our clients. It allows us to hang out before the wedding, get you comfortable in front of the camera, have fun and get great shots of you. Got ideas of where you’d like to shoot? Let’s hear them! We’ve got plenty of suggestions if you need them. Engagement sessions are the perfect excuse to do a hair & make up trial.  It’s great to see what you’ll look like and how it translates to the camera.
