Weddings and Engagements

About

It is a privilege for us to be included in your wedding plans and an honor we take with great care.  We understand that there are other talented photographers you could go with but you’ve chosen to include us in your most beautiful and important day.  With all the details that go into planning the perfect wedding, it’s very easy to miss something or even worry about whether or not certain parts will come together.  You don’t have to worry about that with us.  We offer very high quality photography that you can be confident in sharing with your loved ones and we are sure that you will love the photos just as much down the road when reminiscing as the first time you saw them.  At any point throughout your planning process we will be sure to stand by your side and answer any questions or give photography advice to help make that special day even better.

Packages

Every wedding and engagement is unique and as such we customize every package for each individual bride and groom.

Extras

We’re different from other photography companies.  Instead of outsourcing our printing to out of state printing companies, we work directly with a professional print lab here in St. Louis to be sure that we can hand you printed images that meet our highest quality standards.  It allows us a better opportunity to proof and perfect your photography prints and make sure your photos are perfect in every way – from the archival paper with vivid colors all the way down to every sharp photographic detail.  We also design and print large format hard backed coffee table books, each custom designed with leather or linen covers, as well as mini art books, clothing, stretched canvases, and home decor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I get a print release for the images?

Yes!  Absolutely!  You get a release for all the images.  

How large are the images that I get?  

All the released images are up to 2000 pixels on the long edge and more than big enough to fill an entire computer screen or print up to 8″ x 10″.  We also provide larger sizes, large enough to print billboard sized images, upon request.

How are the images processed?  

We typically do a 50/50 blend of color and black and white images.  Everything is special color graded to meet your expectations whether that be a vintage look, a sharp cool look, or a clean warm glow.  Everything is color calibrated for print but they look just as wonderful in any social media website.  

Do you travel for weddings?  

Yes, we do!  We work all over the united states.  For driving we charge $2.00/mile for anything over 30 miles away or ask for reimbursement for plane tickets and hotel accommodations.

How many photos can we expect to get?  

We guarantee 20 photos per hour for 1-photographer packages and 30 photos per hour for 2-photographers.  Typically we over-deliver though.
