FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long have you two been shooting weddings?

We met at college where we were both pursing art/photography degrees. Ellie started the business while we were still in college and ran it by herself for two years. We graduated, moved up to Portland and after a bit of transition time decided to make the business a partnership. BEST DECISION EVER.

As soon as we decided to run it together we gave it everything. We worked and hustled and grinded every day together and turned our baby into something we’re immensely proud of. We have shot together since 2015 and are starting our 5th wedding season with the start of 2019.

This is our full time job. Neither one of us have other jobs outside of wedding photography. We are all in on this and we love it.

Do you Go on site visits?

Yes but they are not vital so don’t feel pressured to have one. In fact most our couples don’t do a site visit with us for one reason or another. If you are getting married at a Portland venue there’s a good chance we’ve shot at it before. Which is great because we can show you examples of how it looks and tell you all about our experience shooting there. But if you have a venue we haven’t had the pleasure of shooting at before that’s fine too.

We believe in being very through with you on the planning of your wedding. We want to help plan and give our opinions and insights. And in that sense sites visits are great but not absolutely crucial. One of the most important things to us as your photographers is light. That’s what we look for more than anything at locations. Thats a big part of our job and because we’re always looking for great light we’ve become confident in finding it.

So, by all means let’s do a site visit because it’s exciting planning and visualizing your wedding and trust us we will LOVE talking with you about it but please don’t feel like it’s a must do part of the checklist with us.

WE WILL FIND GOOD LIGHT ANYWHERE WE ARE


MY SIGNIFICANT OTHER HATES HAVING THEIR PHOTO TAKEN. WHAT DO YOU DO TO ADDRESS THAT?

Tell your fiancé that we get it! That it’s completely understandable and we can relate. Part of the philosophy we wanted to build into the way we took photos was the complete belief in simple being beautiful. There can be a pressure felt for many different reasons that distracts from

Honestly it can be a helpful and intimate conversation if both of you took a moment to talk about why having your photo taken might be uncomfortable. Giving real reasons besides “I hate it.” can help you as a couple and us as your photographers and BFFs turn the process into a beautiful date for the two of you and love filled experience.

One of the best experiences we ever had was atop a mountain, when at the end of the engagement session, as dusk set in, the guy put his arm around his girl and with his voice choking told us that taking photos with us was so intimate and by far one of the best dates he had ever had with her.

people feel to look their best or have these photos be the grandest, most epic photos these photos be something other than what they actually are.

Having a sense of feeling awkward and not knowing what to do with your hands and everything else is
