FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE?
Having worked in fashion and editorial for so many years that definitely underpins all that we do. Nothing staid and boring. We want to make art. Tyler approaches each wedding like it is a fashion shoot. You have amazing details, hair, make up, fashion & it is your day to shine. We love to capture spontaneous, organic moments but we also love to take time to capture amazing portraits with an edge. (for more on this)
HOW IMPORTANT IS AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?
In a word very. I absolutely LOVE engagement shoots. For many reasons. First, Tyler teaches you great modeling tips. Second, you can get rid of any photo shoot jitters when you see how gorgeous your gallery turns out. Three, you get to know your photographer. Four, it might be the last time you get your pictures taken in a casual way. Once the kids come along forget having a relaxing photo shoot:). Finally, five, who doesn’t need more great pictures of themselves? Yes you will get them on the wedding day but you will be in a formal gown and the engagement shoot just has different energy.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT MY WEDDING?
A minimum of two. But every wedding is different and larger weddings often require an assistant or additional photographer. During the discovery process with you we will determine together what will be best for your day.
DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Yes, Tyler LOVES destination weddings. We can handle all air travel, hotels, and local transportation so you can just focus on your day.
DO YOU NEED A SHOT LIST?
We are happy to see your wedding inspiration shots. We will go over your entire day & must have shots during our war plan meeting, that is a complimentary coordination meeting with our Pre-production Coordinator. During this time you can tell us of any shots you must have or special features to your wedding day ie. sparklers, fireworks, surprise performances. We will also get from you during this meeting a list of family photos that you would like.
Of course, Tyler has shot over 1,000 weddings so he does have his own list of must-have shots that tell your story (details, groom watching bride come down the aisle, bridal beauty portraits, mother and daughter during bridal prep, etc) so you need not worry about giving us a list.
WILL YOU DO TABLE SHOTS?
Table shots are an antiquated (and quite frankly terrible) way of capturing your guests. Our second photographer will roam around your cocktail party and reception if requested doing “grip and grin” pictures. We might also suggest a Portrait Studio or modified upscale photo booth (For more details click here).
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I GET AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
A typical 8 hour wedding with Tyler yields anywhere from 1000 to 1700 images. We know it is a lot, more than most studios deliver but we have never had a complaint. Our feeling is you are paying a handsome sum to have us we want to deliver to you lots of beautiful options.
Our turn time is between 4 and 6 weeks.
WHAT ARE MY DELIVERABLES?
You will receive a thumb drive with your high resolution images. All images are 8×10 300 DPI. Images are not watermarked. You can print up to about 2’x3′ without loss of quality.
DO YOU OFFER A MILITARY DISCOUNT?
ABSOLUTELY! We LOVE our military….thank you for serving our country! We also have active military contracts with deployment clauses.
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT TERMS?
YES. Weddings can be soo expensive. We try to help our clients to make our terms work for their budget. Ask us about what we can do for you!
If you have any further questions do not hesitate to email or call us. We love to answer questions:)
