Frequently Asked Questions

How would you describe your style?

Our signature style is clean, crisp and timeless. But every wedding and couple is different. If you’re looking for a particular style, we should talk about that during your free consultation.

How many photos do you take?

We never count, but on average, we deliver about 250 -300 fully edited photos for most weddings, and about 150 fully edited photos for elopements and smaller non-traditional weddings. But every wedding is unique and unlike the other, so amounts may vary. You may choose to purchase all the raw footage (every single photograph taken) in addition to our selects for a small fee, if you wish.

Do you edit the photos?

Yes, and it’s something we pride ourselves on. Each photograph is hand crafted and individually edited for light, color, exposure, sharpness and white balance. We also do light retouching on any photos that may need it.

What equipment do you use? 

We use the best equipment and gear we can get, and we always, always bring backups. Along with cameras, we also bring strobes, lights, filters and even a drone for aerial shots!

Do you charge for travel or multiple locations? 

If your wedding is more than 30 miles from Orange County, CA, reasonable travel fees may apply, but every wedding is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We shoot in L.A. county for no fee.

How do we book you and what’s your payment plan?

To secure your wedding date in our calendar, we require a non-refundable $500 retainer and signed contract for local weddings – which can be signed by either partner. Destination weddings require a non-refundable 50% retainer and signed contract in order to book travel arrangements. The remaining balance is due two weeks (14 days) before your wedding or event date. You may wish to make your own payment plan between booking and balance due date. We provide receipts upon every payment.

How many weddings do you shoot a year?

We limit ourselves to about 15 weddings a year to give every couple an exclusive experience with care and personal attention. Every photo and/or piece of your wedding video is carefully selected, crafted and edited so you can expect quality we are proud of.

Do you offer any discounts?

Due to our high demand, we don’t currently offer many discounts. However, if you decide to hire us for your engagement session, you’ll receive $100 off for your wedding day photography. You may also wish to reach out for a custom wedding or elopement package.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, checks, PayPal and Venmo. We can discuss payment options upon booking or consultation. For your records, invoices and receipts are given for every payment.

Do you shoot LGBTQ+ weddings?

ABSOLUTELY! Because we believe love is love is love.

Do you need a shot list?

Rather than a shot list, we prefer to meet in person to discuss your goals and expectations. However, we do ask for a shot list for your family photos for the wedding, so we make sure no one is forgotten, and we work as efficiently as possible. Our recommendation is to keep the list relatively brief. A brief wedding-day timeline will also be very helpful, but not necessarily required.

What do you wear?

We keep our attire professional, conservative and subtle to blend in. We wear formal and dark clothing and keep our shoes comfortable.

When will we get our pictures/video?

Even with our signature style of individually retouching and editing all of your photos, we’re proud to have a quick turnaround of 3-4 weeks for photos and 5-6 weeks for videos.

Do you shoot any other events like quinceañeras, Sweet 16’s, graduations etc.?

Yes! Although our website mostly showcases weddings and engagement sessions, we have a lot of experience shooting other types of celebratory events and portraits. Depending on the size, location, duration and nature of your event, it may cost less than a wedding. Please contact us for a complimentary consultation and quote.

Do you have liability insurance?

Absolutely, and we’ll be happy to provide your venue with a proof of coverage.

Are there any vendors you’ve worked with that you recommend for us?

Yes! We’ve worked with a lot of vendors in different fields. Please refer to our partners section for more information.
