FAQ

What’s your style?

We come from a documentary and a fine art background, we love to create your wedding day story through our photographs, documenting all the moments in between. We believe that the preparation is a very special time as it shows that anticipation/excitement in the air. We ask our couples to wait for us to get ready so that we can document the preparation as it naturally unfolds, we are not big fans of recreated shots where you pose just for the camera.  At some point during the day, before or after the ceremony (depending on your timeline and if you want a first look or not) we’ll go take couple portraits. Anna takes a walk with the couple around the neighborhood (or if you have in mind a special spot/location) to take couple portraits and Mikhail keeps documenting what’s happening at the venue. We promise, the couple portraits session is fun! Anna won't make you pose too much or having you make hand hearts in the sky. Promise. She will just photograph the way you two interact with each other. During your wedding day we work around you without pulling you out of the party, you finally want to have fun after all this planning!

What do we get?

Our full day coverage starts at 7 hours, additional hours can be arranged. You’ll get a minimum of 500 edited photos (often more :) for 7 hours of coverage. All the photographs are edited and color corrected, some in color and some in black and white. Your photos will be ready in 2 months and delivered in an online gallery for you to download. You can share the link of your online gallery with family and friends. The photographs are in high resolution and without watermark, you are free to share them and print them at your favorite lab or you can purchase prints in your online gallery from our hand selected professional lab that makes beautiful color calibrated thick prints in various sizes.

Do you take formal family photos?

Absolutely. It’s so precious that all your special people are showing up for you and that two families are becoming one, we don’t want to miss that! As we don’t know your family, before the wedding day we ask for a list of the people that you want in the family shots so that we can coordinate that quickly on the wedding day.
