A: Typically, it takes about a week, but during the holidays and the busy season it can take up to 2 weeks.
Q: What style is your photography and videography?
A: Our style is mostly photojournalistic, with a mix of traditional.  We prefer to meet with our clients to get an idea of what they prefer.  There are several photographers who have a fixed style and a set list of pictures they take.  We shoot what our client wants.  Sometimes we have a client who needs a certain capture they have seen on our website and we accommodate them.  Others want something totally different, something unique and we can accommodate them also.  We realize that the client’s ideas for their wedding should be the priority.
Q: Are your video cameras true broadcast High Definition cameras?
A: Yes, these are brand new Sony High Definition CineAlta cameras.  These are very low light cameras and are the same cameras used for several network television shows.

A: Yes, you provide us with the music on CD and we will use whatever selections you choose.

Our standard packages offer 1 videographer and 1 photographer, each with an assistant.  Some photographers and videographers offer 2 camera shoots, but with inferior equipment, or where one person is skilled and the other is not.  If you hire us as a two camera shoot, it is two experienced photographers and videographers.
