QUESTIONS + CONCERNS

WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
We’re based in White Pigeon, Michigan.

WHAT DO YOU INCLUDE IN YOUR PACKAGES?
All elopement + intimate wedding packages (20 guests or less) include: full day coverage (10 hours), Emily as your lead photographer, all of Emily’s travel fees included, detailed planning support/advice, vendor recommendations, an online gallery of high-resolution images, personal printing rights, and a physical package mailed directly to you including a walnut USB.

WHAT IS YOUR EDITING STYLE?
Emily values details and wants each photo to be its best. We don’t outsource editing to anyone, ever. Our aim is to keep things natural and timeless; the grass green, the sky blue, etc. Emily highly values: accurate coloring, symmetry, well-lit/sharp faces, true whites, minimal distractions, and logical cropping.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THIS?
Emily shot her very first wedding in July 2011.

HOW DO YOU PROTECT IMAGES?
We shoot on two memory cards simultaneously. After your wedding, all RAW images are backed-up in at least three separate locations (one being a fireproof/waterproof safe). We know these memories mean the world to you, and we do all that we can to protect them. We have insurance through Professional Photographers of America.

WE AREN’T SURE ON LOCATION YET. CAN YOU HELP?
Heck yes! Emily prides herself on being a resource to couples in many forms. She has great knowledge on what to look for in a location and will help give you personalized suggestions and advice based on many factors.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE CAN WE BOOK YOU?
The furthest we book out is 18 months. Many couples book between 6-10 months out. Heck, we even helped put an intimate wedding on three weeks prior. Last minute inquiries are welcome for sure. Head to the contact page to fill out the form to check availability + get the ball rolling.

DO YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS WITH MORE THAN 20 GUESTS?
Yes, we take a handful of bigger weddings per year. We’d love to talk to you about yours!

HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
We give you a mixture of color + black and white photos. All the high-resolution digital JPEG files will be delivered to you through a private shareable online gallery. There is no limit to the number of photographs you will receive from your wedding day (it will probably be more than you’re thinking). From the thousands that will be taken, Emily will hand-pick all the best images, by getting rid of any duplicates, misfires, or images with poor lighting. We’d be happy to send over some full galleries for you to browse. We also provide a personalized physical package in all wedding packages which includes a walnut USB.

CAN WE SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Chyeah! We require that you provide visible credit for each post made online. This small business thrives on people being able to see + know it’s our work. We also kindly ask that you do not crop, edit, or alter the images in any way. We love seeing which ones you share!

WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE?
Two Canon R6 bodies. All Canon L series lenses: 35mm 1.4, 85mm 1.4, 24mm 1.4, and 24-70mm 2.8.

ARE YOU TWO MARRIED?
Yep! And it’s the best thing ever. We tied the knot under a huge Catalpa tree back in May 2015.
