Frequently asked questions

How do I book you for my wedding?


Click here to contact us today! We will get your contract started right away. We require a $500 retainer plus your signed contract to lock your wedding date on our calendar. The remaining balance is due one month before your wedding date. Popular dates can book over a year in advance, so don't wait!




Do you charge a travel fee for weddings?


We are located in Appleton, Wisconsin, and our standard radius extends from Green Bay to Fond du Lac, and over to Stevens Point. Anywhere farther than that, we do charge a travel fee. Having a destination wedding? Contact us for a custom quote!




When will we receive our wedding images?


While we usually share a few sneak peeks soon after your wedding, the best things in life come to those who wait. Our commitment to you extends far beyond your wedding day! We typically require 8-12 weeks to hand edit your works of art, design your custom wedding album and slideshow, and prepare your online gallery.




How many images will I receive?


We believe in quality over quantity, because you'd rather have several hundred really awesome images that scream "wow, I look amazing!!" than 1,000 images of your grandma blinking or your best friend chewing with their mouth open. We typically deliver 50-75 images per hour of coverage.




Why do you include printed photographs or albums with every wedding collection?


We believe in the power of printed photographs. There is nothing like hanging a gorgeous metal print on your wall or holding a beautiful, handcrafted fine art album in your hands and seeing your memories in living color. Our wedding albums are leather-bound heirloom pieces that can be passed down to your children and enjoyed for years to come, no matter what changes come to technology. We rarely have time to flip through our own digital images on the computer, but we see our wedding portrait on the wall in our living room every single day. It reminds us of both the joy of that day and how old we're getting. :)




Do you require couples to have a first look before the ceremony?


Absolutely not! Many of our couples do not want to see each other before the ceremony, and we respect that decision. Every wedding is unique, and we work with you ahead of time to make sure we get amazing photographs no matter what your schedule looks like. We walk you through all of your options, and find a plan that works for you.




Why do you include an engagement session with every wedding collection?


The engagement session is not only tons of fun, but it's also a super important part of our process for getting amazing wedding images. We could walk into your wedding day blind, and you'd get beautiful photos, but would they truly be "you"? The engagement session allows you to see how we work, and allows us to figure out what make you unique. We need to know what kind of jokes get you to laugh, what poses make you feel comfortable, and what speaks to you in a photograph. Then on your wedding day, there's no stress: just confidence that you are going to have amazing memories.
