Frequent Questions

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

The best and shortest way to describe what we do is by saying that we concentrate on natural, photojournalistic, film like images that are honest and draw you into the story of the day. We aim to make you FEEL the way you did on your wedding day, during every moment. Each wedding is unique and beautiful and we hope that your images portray a sense of emotion and take you back to how you felt.

WHO ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHERS?

Stephanie and Brett shoot every wedding together. We like each other a lot. A whole lot actually. We know each other so well that we are perfect compliments for your day. In some rare instances, it will be Stephanie and another fabulous wedding photographer who is handpicked to feed into the style and the stories we are trying to tell. They will be very skilled and own their own businesses as well. We are lucky to have a lot of talented photographers in Pittsburgh.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

Absolutely. We want to go everywhere and anywhere so take us with you! We will document the whole trip, beyond the wedding day. We offer special discounts for couples who take us with them on their epic adventure. Our passports are ready and up to date. 

WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?

We are wedding and lifestyle photographers based in western Pennsylvania, mainly working in our hometown of Clarion for portraits and Pittsburgh for weddings. Don’t worry about where we live though, it doesn’t matter. We would love to document your wedding no matter where it is!

WHAT ARE YOUR WEDDING RATES?

Complete wedding collections begin at $3200. We offer an hourly rate of $450 (2 hour minimum) for weekday weddings and elopements, and weddings booking less than 3 months in advance. We have put together a few collections but we would love to discuss a custom package for your needs.

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?

We would love to meet you in person if possible to discuss your big day and see if we can offer you what you are looking for, but at the very least we like to chat on the phone or over Facetime. To officially book us for your day, we require a signed contract and a $1000 retainer fee.

HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU NEED WITH US BEFORE THE CEREMONY?

That depends. If you are staying traditional and not seeing each other prior to the ceremony an hour or two is usually plenty of time. We don’t need to be there to document everybody getting their hair done. If that is something you would like we suggest you get touched up when we arrive. If you plan on doing a first look, we prefer that wedding parties are ready for photos about 2 to 3 hours before the start of the ceremony. This ensures that we shoot great photos without feeling super rushed for time. This also gives you space to relax after these photos and freshen up before your ceremony. It’s a win/win

WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK?

This is a moment that the bride and groom take to see each other before the ceremony. This can be one of the most intimate moments of your day – we have shot some of our favorite images during first looks. We definitely recommend it. It in no way makes the first time he sees you during the ceremony any less special. In most cases, the groom is still crying. This also gives you more time to spend with your guests.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?

You will receive roughly 100 images per hour that we are photographing your event, but we put an emphasis on quality over quantity so that number differs with each event.

WHAT ARE YOUR ALBUMS LIKE?

Honestly, our albums are amazing. You don’t have to get one, but you are missing out on something physical, unique, and special. We offer many types of albums and books with so many covers. There is something for everyone.
