Frequently Asked Questions
When will we get our photos?
We generally will finish your photos within 90 days of your wedding date or 21 days of your portrait session.
We always try to beat that and often do...we know you're anxious!
How do you photograph weddings?
Your wedding photographers will be the people you see the most on your wedding day.
We'll be there to help guide you long before your wedding day.
From the day you select us to the big day, we'll always be talking with you.
On your wedding day, we'll capture the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique!
How many pictures will we receive?
It really depends...each portrait session and wedding is different.
Generally, for portraits we deliver between 40 and 60 finished images.
Weddings are different...and bigger! You can expect between 400 and 800 finished images, however your milage may vary!!
Rest assured, for all of our clients we ALWAYS choose quality over quantity!
Where are you based and do you travel?
We're based in Minnesota...and, yes, we love road trips!
If you want us to photograph your story, it might require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.
But no worries, we always work with our clients to find the best outcome for each situation.
Do you have any sales or discounts during the year?
We do provide a discount for military service members and first responders (for whom we are truly grateful) available any time of the year.
Some packages include engagement sessions. What are your engagement sessions like? Is there a time limit?
Our engagement sessions are about an hour, plus or minus.
We don't set a timer or watch the clock.
Usually, an hour is about right and everyone can usually feel it.
Locations are really only limited by what we can do in about an hour.
We always discuss locations for engagement sessions during the process.
What is your payment process like? (i.e. deposit, paid-in-full by a certain date, only cash, etc.)
Our wedding coverage payment process starts with a signed contract and a $750 non-refundable retainer to secure a date.
We then arrange a payment schedule that meets your needs, whether paying in full or spreading out payments between the contract signing and the wedding date.
However, note that our policy is to have the contract fully paid 30 days prior to the wedding date. That way, something doesn't slip through the cracks as the wedding closes in and it's one less thing to worry about.
Portrait sessions have a $100 non-refundable retainer due at booking with the remainder due 48-hours prior to the session.
Do your fees/packages include Sales Tax?
It certainly would be easier if they did, but alas, they do not.
