WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE?
We love our Canon 5D Mark IVs like we love our own children. Add all of the pro L series lenses that we use to that feat of photographic engineering, and you get consistently sharp and beautiful images. We also bring along our Contax 645 medium format cameras with our 80mm Zeiss lenses for anyone interested in having some film images captured too.
DO YOU BRING BACK UP GEAR?
DO YOU SHOOT MORE THAN ONE WEDDING IN A WEEKEND?
Never…we want to be at 110% for every couple we work with.
DO YOU ALWAYS SHOOT TOGETHER?
Carlie does all of the portrait and engagement sessions, and Gabe joins her for every wedding. For select weddings we’ll bring on a 3rd shooter/assistant too.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE OUR PICTURES?
There is some major magic that happens in post production, and every single image gets some of that magic added to it. This process is something that really shouldn’t rushed, so that’s why it takes 4-6 weeks to see your images….but never longer!
WHICH OF YOUR THREE DIFFERENT LOOKS OF POST PRODUCTION SHOULD WE CHOOSE?
This is pure personal preference, so go with your gut. I offer more than one look because everyone’s style is unique and I want to create images that suit your style and your wedding. I always love to see inspiration images and pinterest boards to get a sense of what you’re drawn to, and that input helps to inspire my own photography.
DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?
Only for prints ordered through the online gallery, but for photography services we prefer checks or direct deposits.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO OUR PORTRAIT/ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Anything that you feel confident and comfortable in, and anything that suits the location that we’re shooting in. We recommend avoiding anything too matchy-matchy, and fabrics that are so thin or transparent that they show undergarment lines. We always love layers, complimenting colors, mixing prints and solids, great accessories and having your hair and makeup professionally done that day. We recommend searching pinterest and the lookbooks of your favorite designers and stores for inspiration.
We’re based in Santa Cruz, California, but we love long distances and a window seat. If you’re planing a destination wedding please inquire about our travel fees.
