Below you will find information about working with our team and what to expect from our first consultation to the delivery of your albums and artwork.

If you haven’t already, please fill out our contact form at your earliest convenience. If we are available, we would be honored to work with you and we’ll get back to you shortly.

If your date is already secured, your experience begins now and we are always just an email or phone call away.


Video Consultation:

Our first meeting will be all about you. We want to get to know you, the ones you love, and the things that matter most to you. We’ll discuss the best way for us to work together and create a package that is perfect for your celebration.

Preparing for Your Wedding:

Two months before your wedding day we will send you a questionnaire. Your answers will allow us to tailor your experience to your expectations. We encourage you to share your hopes and dreams and to tell us all about the moments you are anticipating and the people you can't wait to welcome.

Your Investment:

Once you know you want us by your side, we’ll send you your contract which you can pay in 3 equal installments. The contract will secure your date and guarantee that no other events will be schedule on the day/s of your wedding.

Coordinating With Your Wedding Planner:

One month before your date we will reach out to your wedding planner to coordinate on your timeline so we can cover everything you need without disturbing the flow of your event. We consider ourselves to be part of your team and we will work seamlessly with other professionals to support you.

Scheduling Your Engagement Session:

Your engagement session is a special time together that allows the two of you to get comfortable in front of the camera and gain confidence about how wonderful your wedding photos will look. We will request that you provide 3 dates that work with your schedule, and we’ll look forward to spending this fun and creative time together.

* It is our pleasure to offer complimentary engagement sessions to front-line workers and teachers.

Check In Call:

One week out we will set up a call to go over the details of your day and ensure you’re feeling confident about your timeline and ready to relax in front of our cameras. We'll take note of any changes you've made since we first met, double check your timeline, and discuss your shot list for VIP family and guests.

Preparing for Your Engagement Session:

The best way to make your engagement session shine is for us to discuss the energy, vibe and location that fits your personality. Historic places, gardens, ball parks, cherry blossoms, and coffee shops are all part of the DC landscape, and we would love to help you find the place that speaks to you.

Delivery of Your Artwork and Albums:

It does take a bit of time to curate and expertly edit your photographs. You can expect film and digital files to be delivered in 6 weeks, highlight reels and cinema within 12 weeks, and albums within 3 months of the date you order your final design.
