frequently asked questions HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SHOOTING STYLE? two words: photo ninjas. ;-) those aren’t actually our words - they just keep rolling in from clients who are amazed at how unobtrusive we are on a wedding day. we want you to enjoy every moment with your closest family and friends and have a way of melting into the background so you can do just that. and because you get two lead photographers, we won’t miss a moment. HOW MANY PHOTOS CAN WE EXPECT TO RECEIVE? we don’t cap the number of images we make on a wedding day, nor do we restrict how many you receive as a final product. moments make the images, and we generally find about 100 of ‘em per hour of coverage. DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS? to the batmobile! no seriously, we’ll go wherever you are. if we’re headed outside the charleston area there may be a travel fee to cover expenses. just let us know your destination and we’ll give you a quote. HOW LONG IS THE COVERAGE FOR A TYPICAL WEDDING DAY? we find that 7-8 hours suit most weddings perfectly. however, we do everything from intimate 4-hour beach weddings to full-day shoots that start with tee times and spa treatments. you can count on us to be there until the last sparkler or wave goodbye. we’re happy to help you structure your day’s timeline to make sure you get the most from your coverage. WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE? we like to think that pots and pans don’t make the chef, but for those interested we use canon 5D mark III cameras and professional L-series lenses. each of us carries two cameras on the wedding day, and we have a third back-up in case of emergency. EXPLAIN YOUR EDITING PROCESS. we work hard to capture your images as close to perfection as possible right in camera while we shoot. good images are about good composition, knowing your light, and calculating exposure as you go - not “fixing” it later! afterward we make slight adjustments for color and brightness as needed, and if you happen to have a blemish on the wedding day (you won’t!), we will take care of that too. more extensive retouching is available for an additional charge upon request. all images are captured as digital RAW files, which gives us the option to do color or black and white. DO YOU BACK UP YOUR FILES? you didn’t think photo ninjas would leave this to chance, did you? digital images are really 1s and 0s on a disc - but they’re your 1s and 0s. as soon as we walk in the door after your wedding, we dump all files onto two separate hard drives, one of which goes into a fireproof safe until we are finished editing. we also use cloud storage for your photos, plus archive a set of final images on our own hard drives off site. your images are perfectly safe from snow, floods, rogue fireballs raining from the sky, and rival ninjas.
