Forget those posed, sit down in a chair, look at the camera and smile pictures they used to take for your grandparents. If there is a mountain to climb, let's climb it, if there is a river to cross, let's cross it, if it starts raining, let's get wet, if we need to get in a plane, we find the pilot. If you want something new, something special, you have to be fearless. Normal Engagement Sessions or Love Stories are boring. We do something different. While others just care about getting paid, we do everything we can to make sure your shoot is unique and exotic. We scout and explore incredible locations so your pictures and videos are like nothing anyone has ever seen before.
We love all types of different locations for our destination weddings and engagement shoots. In fact, our favorite type of weddings are destination weddings for this reason. Do you want to do a hike together? Or maybe a picnic in the park? How about a sunset stroll on the beach? We're here to help you plan the perfect engagement shoot location, so you can get the pictures you've always wanted.
No, we do not. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing millions of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.
We have shot at hundreds of venues, so there is a good chance that we have. However, if we have not, we will get to the venue early on the day of and be sure to perform a thorough walk-through to scout out the best photography locations. We also do extensive online research prior to your big day!
Typically, the photographer you meet with will be the photographer for your engagement session and wedding. You may request to meet with a specific photographer; otherwise, we’ll make the decision based on personality, availability, language abilities, and your referral. For example, if Werner shot the wedding of your friend who referred you to us, he would likely be the one meeting with you.
