We will make best efforts to find free parking at your designated venue or location, but in certain scenarios, paid parking may be necessary due to proximity and /or time constraints. For example, if the other options are to park way up in the hills, leave our car blocks away, or circle around and around, we are going to use common sense and park at the designated spot. Especially if we are carrying heavy gear! To ensure we have adequate parking, and are reimbursed for this direct cost, any associated parking fees will be charged to the Client card on file following the photo shoot. We are happy to provide a receipt for your records :)
Technically yes, but we recommend going with our craftsman-quality wedding albums. Our engagement books, although nice, are more of a keepsake item. They have lightweight pages and durable cloth covers, with a limited selection of featured images (up to 20). This is ideal for displaying engagement photos, and having a well-designed memento for guests to sign. However, there is simply no way to encapsulate an entire wedding within 20 photos, and it will present more like a book than a substantial album. Engagement books are really designed and intended to show off the engagement.
If you are looking to tell the story of the day, with an heirloom designed to last generations, our wedding albums will be your best option. They are beautifully crafted, with elegant micro-leather covers and thick, durable pages. To learn more about our wedding albums, please click here.
We of course want to know what is most important to you, to help ensure we are successful for the wedding day. Pinterest is one way to get and share inspiration, and can be a useful resource. Here is what we suggest. This is the hard part ;) We suggest sharing with us if there are select and specific pictures that really inspire you. Please feel free to send them our way. But send a few purely for inspiration, not replication.
As creative photographers, we are always looking to bring out your unique personalities. If there is a large list of images that are to be replicated from Pinterest, then we are no longer creating. Rather, we are spending energy trying to copy images that already exist. The tricky part is that those images often can't meet expectations, because they represent another couple, or many other couples. Instead, we are looking to capture images that show the two of you, specifically, in the best light and angles.
To recap, you are welcome to provide Pinterest examples to help share the overall style and mood that inspires you. Then, put that trust in your photographer to create and customize the images that will ultimately look best for you. By embracing your photographers’ direction, and committing to their vision, you will ultimately get images representative of our portfolio, with a lot of variety, expressions, poses and backgrounds. Before long, you will be adding your own amazing photos to Pinterest, to inspire others :)
