What equipment do you use?
We shoot all images digitally with professional Nikon equipment. We bring backup gear, lots of lenses, batteries and flashes.
Can we give you a shot list of photographs we want you to take?
A suggestion of a few images that may be unique to you can be helpful, but a "checklist" is counterproductive to the way we work. "Shot lists" provided by bridal magazines and/or blogs are a good idea for you as a client, but we will usually capture those images without prompting.
Why do you provide all of my pictures in a printed format vs a disc?
We believe marriages are for a lifetime & unfortunately our current technology will not last that long. We want you to look back at your wedding pictures with your children and your grandchildren and remember the love you shared. We are sure that years from now you will not huddle around a pc or even pick up a tablet to look at pictures, but we are sure if you have a printed image you will be able to view it for a lifetime.
How do we book you for our wedding?
In order to reserve the date, a 1/3 retainer and a signed contract are required to secure the date. Dates are held on a first come, first served basis.
What does the complimentary engagement session include?
We include a 30 minute get-to-know-you engagement session with every package. All sessions are done at the Reading Museum, unless other arrangements have been made. There may be an additional fee to travel to other locations. All images are posted to a personal gallery on our website & can be ordered al-a-carte.
How long does it take to get our pictures after the wedding?
We strive to have all pictures to our newlyweds within 4 weeks.
Do you have back up photographers in the event of an emergency
We have 6 photographers that are capable and fully trained to shoot for our studio. We only book 4 weddings per day. This leaves two of our photographers "on-call" should an emergency arise. We have never had to go to a back-up and pray we never do.
Do we need to feed you at the reception?
Yes, please. It doesn't have to be the same as your sit-down meal, but we would truly appreciate a "hot meal". Feeding us ensures we will stay happy and continue shooting to our full abilities. We also prefer to be fed when you are fed, not afterwards, because when you are eating you are not at your most photogenic and when you are done, we want to be able to continue shooting your wedding.
Our wedding photographer was Sandy who was absolutely fabulous!
She was so easy to work with and new exactly what she was doing! Our wedding party could not have asked for anyone better as well! (Especially Russell). This company is absolutely recommended. Our engagement photos were gorgeous well which we got our save the dates with magnets that they created. Absolutely perfect and very professional.
I would highly recommend this photographer.
I would highly recommend this photographer. We had Anneliese for our engagement and wedding day photos.
She went above and beyond for us from helping us incorporate my dad who passed in our wedding to having our dogs on our cuff links as a way to have them there a well. The work was beautiful. My husband is not easy when it comes to pictures but she made him enjoy all the time we took for pictures. So many pictures we have having a hard time pick what we want.
We never felt pushed or rushed. Kept track of everything for us and made sure that when it snowed on our engagement shoot that we would still get great pictures for our guest book (we were married in spring), and it was the truth it was amazing!
Honestly the best pricing, very professional, always easy to reach and very flexible as my husband and I do not have a lot of time off together.
Looking for someone please use this family team!!!
Anneliese was our photographer for our wedding...
and my husband and I could not have been happier. She responded very quickly to emails and answered all of the questions that we had. She was very accommodating with poses that I wanted (check on Pinterest ladies!) and was very attentive throughout the whole day. The price was incredible- you cannot beat it! 100% recommend this company for photography services.
