CAPTURING HOW IT FELT

couple holds hands at rosario head for their deception pass engagement photos

you've decided the big ole TRADITIONAL wedding doesn't feel right to you.

The wedding day glitz and glam, the showiness of it all, the endless to-do list and the stress that comes with it, didn't feel like you.

You decided to do something a little different.

You know you don’t want a short and sweet Vegas wedding, but you don’t want a huge traditional wedding either.

You want something that’s right in the middle.

You're all about celebrating one of the happiest days of your life, with only the people you love the most! A day for eating some hella good food, crying happy tears, and having a damn good time while doing it. The perfect expression of who you are as a team.

But right now it all feels kind of overwhelming, doesn't it?

You've never done this before, and you're not a professional wedding planner so you're just not quite sure how to make it all happen. You skipped the big wedding to save yourself the stress, but now that you've realized all the stuff you still need to do it still seems to be creepin' in anyway.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

THAT'S WHERE WE COME IN!

YOUR PHOTOS DESERVE MORE

THAN JUST TO LIVE ON A SCREEN

Let's face it...most couples end up putting off ordering a wedding album for years. (Yes, YEARS.) We get it! After wedding day, when you go back to normal life, things get busy. You just don't have the time to be bothered with researching who makes albums, to decide what photos you want in it,

arranging them all perfectly.

That's why we include a bespoke handmade wedding album in our Half Day and Sunrise/Sunset packages. We know how much time and energy it takes to make something beautiful. We'll choose the photos for you, arrange them all beautifully to tell the story of your day, and handle the making of your album from start to finish.

Within 3 months you'll have a wedding album on your doorstep for future generations of kids, grandkids, and friends all of the funny, wonderful, beautiful memories of how badass you were.

Every album is created with the highest quality materials that only get better with time. With your photos printed on premium photo paper, and cover materials like leather and linen, instead of fading your album will only gain value as it ages.

Bespoke albums can be added onto Half Day packages starting at $1,000.

POLAROIDS

Annnnnd you'll walk away with Polaroids in every package so you have a snippet of your life to hold right in your hands and hang on the fridge!

Real, raw, and unedited.

couple embracing after their washington state marriage

We always recommend video to all of our couples. Because if we're being real...video captures memories in a way that photos, well, can't. (And we know how crazy that sounds coming from photographers!)

But think about the way you feel when you watch your family home videos from your childhood. Video takes you back in a way that photos don't, right? Video is a gift that allows you to be able to see your loved ones move again, to feel like they're really there all over again. It gives you a unique look at what your lives look like right now that you can relive decades down the road.

It's a way to remember the little moments, the small gestures that often become forgotten to time. The way your dog's tail wags you when you ask them if they wanna to share your wedding cake with you. The way the tears fall down your partner's face as you share your first dance together with the mountains glowing in the alpenglow behind you. The silly little wiggle you do when you're feeling your happiest right as you get ready to say your vows. The moment of realization that flashes across your face as your when you realize you really did this crazy thing.

Not to mention all of the bragging rights you'll have when you watch your elopement video with your kids a few decades from now and say "See?! We were SO cool!".

PLUS, WE KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE FEELING NOSTALGIC

We promise you won't regret it.

FAQ

what if we're having a super simple elopement with just the two of us? can we JUST book a couples session/back roads session instead?

Unfortunately we don't book sessions in place of elopement packages, even if it's just going to be the two of you! As simple as elopements are, even the smallest of celebrations requires a certain level of planning that you might not expect. Things like extensive location research, permits, figuring out a backup plan in case weather doesn't cooperate, coordinating your officiant and witnesses, figuring out the perfect day of timeline (even if you think it's just going to take an hour or two!), having the flexibility to move our plans around day-of if things don't go according to plan, all play a part in planning your day. There are many hours on the backend for us to make sure everything is perfect, because often there is no option to reschedule like there is with a couples session (maybe you're traveling from out of state, or have family visiting only for that day, you only have off from work for a certain amount of time, etc.).

How do payment schedules work?

Do you deliver the RAW files?

The simple answer to this is no. Our editing style is what makes up the bulk of what you see, and right out of camera most photos looks nothing like what you would expect. But when we deliver galleries we go through every single photo to give you the absolute best of the best and not leave out any important moments or expressions.

For all packages payment plans start at 50% at contract signing and the other 50% one month before wedding day. For the Full Day and Sunrise/Sunset package you'll have the option to split everything into 3 or 4 payments.

How many photos do you deliver?

How long until we get our photos?

This can vary from couple to couple based on their specific ideas, traditions, and wedding day. Large families, long ceremonies, any additional formalities all tack on more photos so this can vary greatly! We don't believe in cut-off numbers and culling down to fit a certain number. So as long as you're not blinking, sneezing, or coughing, you'll have all of your photos!

During busy season we can be working on editing many weddings at one time so we don't deliver until we feel that each one is perfect! This means that for weddings we deliver no later than 90 days after your big day, and for engagements one month after we shoot.

What happens if the weather is crazy?

Can we bring our dog to our couples

session or elopement/wedding?

No problemo! Wild weather makes for some dramatic and stunning wedding photos! If you're down to tromp around in the rain and snow together we're totally there for it. We have a 4x4 truck that can get through almost any weather and all terrain, but if you feel like you don't want to brave the forces of nature we can reschedule your session to a better day. We create a backup plan for all elopements too so that no matter what nature throws at you, we'll be prepared.

You bet'chur ass we wanna meet your dog, so please free to bring your pet (any pet, we love all creatures) so we can smother them with butt scratches and treats! If you’re thinking about having your pet at your wedding we have plenty of planning resources for how to make it the best and safest experience possible for both you and your critter.

Can you photoshop me?

Part of what makes magical photos is building a relationship of trust and comfort in the time that we spend together, so we don't alter photos in any way that changes the shape of someone's body. We work together to communicate about any insecurities you might have, while highlighting the parts of yourself that make you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. Any retouching that we do removes only things that aren't a permanent part of you like blemishes, bruises, a stray hair or two. Our philosophy is if it'll be gone in two weeks, we remove it.
