Photo + Video FAQ's

WHAT IS THE DYNAMIC BETWEEN THE PHOTO/VIDEO TEAM AT THE WEDDING?
+
Bree (photo) is typically the one “in charge,” meaning she will be guiding, posing, what we should be doing next, etc. We capture those moments in the background to take a totally candid, unintrusive, and documentary approach. We love to capture things as they happen! Bree and I think natural, organic movement is the most beautiful. We love capturing organic movements, of your hand sliding down your love’s back, or the laughs between you guys, the pure, organic, in love stuff the newlyweds do. The way we shoot facilitates all that.You never have to worry about us getting in each other’s way or being confusing for you, either.


Do you film elopements?
+
Is this even a question? Yesssss of course! We love filming elopements, especially destination elopements! We truly treasure the amazing opportunity to capture an intimate ceremony between you and your honey. For elopement pricing, please fill out the contact form, and we will be in touch!
WHAT IS AN ADVENTURE SESSION?
+
A lot of our couples love doing adventure sessions, which is most often their engagement photos, but in a crazy epic location (like Sedona, Iceland, Joshua Tree, Yosemite, Mt Rainier, etc). Sometimes this means we adventure together for a few days, or meet up for one day! Bree will hang with you all day, show you secret spots, and take insane images showing off your love! Skyla will also be there, taking a stunning video for you! The video is a unique thing that will provide a whole other dynamic to your love story! Plus an epic adventure you’ll remember forever. Show your video at your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, wedding day, plus more. They make us tear up :’).


WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
+
We come fully prepared with the industries best cameras, tripods, and audio recorders! We can do as much or as little as you need.
CAN I MEET BOTH OF YOU BEFORE OUR WEDDING TO SEE IF WE’RE A GOOD FIT?
+
YAS! We love meeting up with couples. We are big believers in making sure we vibe before you book. It’s important to us because we want to be on the dance floor with you once we’re all drunk on cake! And I guess to be able to capture your love in the most natural and authentic way and becoming lifelong friends …but mostly because we want cake…
DO YOU TRAVEL?
+
Heck ya we are! Our travel rates for photo/video are as follows: weddings in SoCal usually have no travel fee, weddings in NorCal have a $1200 travel fee. Travel within in the US varies between where your wedding is, but usually it would be around $3,000 extra for traveling fees. Anything outside of the USA is usually $5000, but just depends. Please reach out and we can give you an official quote!
WILL THE PHOTO/VIDEO TEAM TRAVEL TOGETHER?
+
For destination weddings, we love traveling together and can even stay in the same hotel room to save you money. Ask about travel fees (sometimes there are none!) for your specific wedding/elopement.
HOW DO WE BOOK ALL OF YOU?
+
First, let’s chat! If we hit it off well, there’s just a 40% retainer, one bill and one contract, then boom, it’s official!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER WE BOOK?
+
- First, we will send a welcome gift and helpful planning guide (shhh!)
- We will send you over 2 questionnaires to fill out 3 months before your wedding (due 2 months before). These will help us capture your day the best we can in the way that’s unique to your day! Then, we will help build you a timeline that will make sure the day runs smoothly and gives you lots of relaxing/hang out time. We also find out from you which group photos you want so it’s easy peasy on your big day.
- Vendor lists, wedding planning help, scouting, and literally whatever you need. We are here for you as a whole, not just for photo/video. We LOVE you.
- Engagement/adventure session whenever you’re ready! (but typically 9 months before the wedding)
- We will talk with your coordinator to get on the same track. We make timelines, shot-lists, and get everything prepared.
- The rest of your payment is due a month before your wedding; we offer easy payment plans if you want!
Who will be there on our wedding day?
+
Some days we are double booked for video, which means you get either Skyla or Ryan. Most often, you’ll get Bree, Skyla, Ryan, and sometimes Bree’s assistant.But we promise, you likely won’t have 4 cameras in your face… we usually split up and capture different things. And if you do, we will make sure you feel SUPER DUPER comfortable and not intimidated. We’re here for you!
