Frequently Asked Questions
Are you available to shoot our wedding?
We hope so! Please fill out our contact form on our website and tell us a little bit about yourself and your wedding. We will check our availability and schedule a time to meet with you in person. We are oftentimes booked six months to a year in advance.
We are available to photograph weddings throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We love to travel!
What distinguishes you and your work from other photographers?
A couple of things. First: We’re very easy to work with. A word that shows up often on our Yelp profile is “chill”. We arrive at your event with a lighthearted, easy going approach and an excitement to work with you and your friends and family.
Second: The images we create are full of light and vivid color. A current trend among wedding photographers is to produce images that are moody, faded, and dark. Oftentimes this is created by applying an image preset that flattens the highlights and shadows of an image producing a flat, washed out look. That’s not us. We want our images to be timeless and true to the moment in which we shot them.
What do you enjoy most about being a wedding photographer?
We have the best job ever! We love being part of such a joyous day and having an opportunity to capture details and moments that a couple will cherish for a lifetime. Weddings are such a wonderful, happy day and we’re so grateful that it’s our job to be part of that.
How many years have you been shooting weddings?
We have been photographing weddings for twelve years!
Who will be my photographer?
Depending on our availability you will either shoot with Chris or Christian and depending on your package they may be joined by an associate photographer. In some cases, you may get lucky and get both Chris and Christian!
Do you work with second shooters?
Yes. While we shoot many events with only 1 photographer having a second shooter for getting ready, cocktail hour, and other moments can really help. We work with associate photographers who have a similar style to our own and we edit their photos along with ours to provide a consistent final product.
My partner and I are awkward in front of the camera. Can we still get good photos?
Of course! We get it. We’re super awkward when the camera is turned on us too! We’ll make you feel comfortable in front of the camera by finding poses that feel natural and give you plenty of direction along the way. We make the process relaxed, fun, and lighthearted.
Do you release your RAW files?
No. In our eyes delivering unedited files would be delivering an unfinished product. The images you see on our website are not only a result of our photographic eye but also our editing style and together these complete the vision we have for each photo.
Do you use Photoshop?
Not really. We take photos that are honest and authentic. While we occasionally touch up blemishes and make minor tweaks to flyaway hairs, etc. we don’t “airbrush” skin or erase family members out of frames.
What do you enjoy outside of wedding photography?
Photography is a huge part of our everyday lives and practically follows us everywhere. We love spending time with our family and friends. California has so much to offer and we're always itching to get out and shoot. We spend our time traveling, biking, cooking, and drawing.
