Q: What makes your services different than most other photographers?
A: We are a professional photography company with the experience, training, and knowledge necessary to shoot in any venue at any time. There is a huge misconception that just having a "nice camera" is all that is necessary to deliver a professional product and service. Through 150+ weddings, thousands of photos shoots, endless hours of study and practice, and pure passion for the craft we have dedicated ourselves to delivering a professional and fun product. There is much more than the camera as well. When it comes to lighting, understanding adjustments on the fly, and delivering a consistent product we have the tools and experience necessary. Just having the tools is just a start. If someone gave me an amazing guitar that is all well and good, but I would have no idea how to make beautiful music with it. The same applies to high end camera equipment. It takes someone with specialized training and knowledge to know how to use the equipment to deliver amazing images on a consistent basis.
We are members of Professional Photographers of America and Indianapolis Professional Photographers Guild for a reason. We are professionals dedicated to this industry. There is a huge separation between a person with a great camera (not knocking it because we used to be that person also) and a professional who knows how to capture a moment and event with exceptional quality.
Q: How long until we get to see our images?
A: With our weddings we ALWAYS post final, edited galleries within seven days of the wedding. There is absolutely no reason to wait weeks (or months) to see your wedding images. After your wedding your images are our full-time job. We usually start editing the night we get back from the wedding, post some sneak peaks on Facebook and Instagram, and work only on your wedding until it is finished to our high standards. Within a week your custom flash drive and wedding information packet will be mailed to you!
Q: What do you do to make sure our day is shot how we want it?
A: Communication!!! From the day you decide to have us shoot your wedding we will be in contact consistently to make sure we plan for your wedding and deliver an amazing and smooth photography package. When you hire us we will ask you to complete the wedding planner which will let us know most of the important aspects of your day. About a month before we will sit down and create a schedule for your day.
Q: We would love to have the copyright to our photos after the wedding...can we?
A: There is a confusion between copyright and print privilege. You will get a custom flash drive (pretty cool product if I do say so myself) with full print rights. We will also recommend specific labs that consumers can use to print amazing images. We do retain the copyright to all of our work so we can use your beautiful images on our website, advertising, etc. All of our weddings come with the custom designed flash drive.

Q: How many photographers will we have at our wedding?
A: All of our packages include two professional photographers...one male and one femaie...to capture all the important parts of your day. There are certain parts of the day where the bride really doesn't want a guy in there taking photographs. This also allows complete coverage of your day? If you would like a third (or fourth) photographer we can provide that if you would like to customize your package to cater to your needs and wants.
Q: What kind of equipment do you use?
A: We shoot with high-end Canon equipment and lenses. We currently shoot with Canon 6Ds, 5D Mark IIIs, and Canon 70Ds (great for video work). We have more invested in high-end lenses than our first car cost. In addition to the camera equipment we have a full lineup of lighting equipment, reflectors, umbrellas, soft boxes, light meters, etc. that gives us the ability to shoot your wedding in a professional manner.
