How much have you got running through your head right now!? Are you as excited as we are about weddings? By now, you most likely have a diamond, a date and a destination and we’d love to hear more about it! If you’re still in the early stages, don’t panic, we’ve done this a million times and whether you book with us or not, we’ll help point you in the right direction for all things wedding, whether it’s here at home in Nova Scotia or a private beach on the other side of the world.
We know it can be tough to research pricing and budgeting in the wedding industry and it can be really hard to find pricing and package information without having to wait for someone to reply to your email. When you want wedding info, you want it right away…we get that!
This is a full description of how we shoot weddings. These are the costs associated with everything you could possibly want in a photography collection and a little bit on how each collection is tailored to very different kinds of weddings. This is probably your first time shopping for wedding photography so we’ve tried to answer all of your questions here!
Here’s the real truth: We’re documentary photographers and we’re shooting your wedding so you can share these photographs in 10, 20, 50 years from now. We don’t take that responsibility lightly. Our assignment is to document your wedding day, create some cool portraits of you and your wedding party and remind you, 20 years from now, exactly how it felt, who was there and how much fun it was. We’re not the kinds of photographers who are going to show you blog posts full of invitations, belts, shoes and flowers neatly arranged on a chair. We’re chasing emotions! The laughs, the tears, the hugs + high fives, all perfectly supported by a backdrop of living details to help compliment your story.
We like to get close, really close! We tell all of our clients just to treat us like new best friends with cameras. We’re with you through it all, regardless of what collection you chose and while the first couple minutes of shooting may seem like you’re the next Kardashian, you get used to the cameras pretty quickly and then soon forget we’re even around…and thats perfect for us! When you’re relaxed and natural, the photos are at their truest.
While we never guarantee a set number of images, we deliver anywhere from 500 to 1000 images in our wedding collections. Each images is fully edited by our own in-house post production team and you can print, share + reproduce these images whenever and however you want! We’ll also tease you while you wait out the 12 weeks by sending you a few sneak peeks as we get everything edited. Your final collection is carefully curated and archived in a private, online gallery that you can share with friends and family and you can even download your digital collection here for immediate access.
So what can you expect to see in a final collection? Drop us a line and we’ll send you a full wedding collection that best matches your kind of wedding. If you’re getting married at the Prince George, we’ll send you something from there to give you the best idea of what you can expect and help you decide what kind of coverage is best for you.
Don’t worry about posing or picture time! We’ll teach you our 3 signature couples poses (the Crotch Cuddle, the Rock Show and the Walk n Talk), tell you a few stupid jokes and make you forget that you’re ‘not comfortable in front of the camera’.
Most important, it’s your day, not ours. We don’t rush you or pressure you to do anything or be anywhere at a certain time. We leave the planning to the planners and the cooking to the cooks. We want to capture emotions and create cool portraits on your wedding day.
From prep to party, we’ll help you plan your timeline so you get the photography coverage you want! We typically show up about 2 hours prior to the ceremony (or First Look if you’re seeing each other beforehand) and shoot right into the dancing. A typical wedding like this has us starting with hair+makeup with the girls around noon, shooting all day and finishing somewhere between 10 and midnight. Every wedding timeline is different so we’re flexible on timing right up until the wedding day. This collection allows for lots of candid + real pictures plus lots of time for the fun + creative stuff with your wedding party and the two of you. If the dance floor is bouncing and you’ve just got to have photos, we’re always happy to hang for up to two more hours if ten just isn’t enough!
A 14 to 16 hour day, this is the ultimate in wedding day photography. Close, intimate and all inclusive. It’s ideal for photography lovers, big weddings and full timelines packed with things like early morning tee times or barber shops shaves. It continues into the wee hours of the night with the DJ and that big circle, singing at the top of your lungs, last song of the night. The final collection is jammed full of photos from almost every minutes of your wedding day.
