How did you get started in this business?
One photo at a time.
What’s your favorite wedding story?
Too many to have just one favorite, but the theme would be seeing two people meet, fall in love, get married, and call us to tell us they are pregnant!
Why do you like working with weddings?
Capturing love stories.
What is the most difficult situation you have faced with a bride and how did you resolve it?
For a bride on a budget and for a wedding under 6 hours, we do not provide a download of the wedding images on a flash drive. We allow the bride to download the images directly from our gallery. A bride was unsuccessful downloading her wedding images from our gallery after several attempts and was very upset. We provided her with a flash drive of the wedding images and also compensated her with with (2) leather 5×7 photo albums: engagement and wedding. We also changed our process for downloading photos. We now include a test download and we advise all brides that a client has experienced issues with the download process and they are to contact us via phone for help should they incur any issue.
From a vendor’s perspective, what is the one best piece of advice you can offer to engaged couples?
Never go to bed mad!
How far in advance should couples book your services?
Six to eighteen months.
What inspires you the most / where do you find inspiration?
We are inspired by LOVE. “The more you love, the more love you have to give. It’s the only feeling we have which is infinite…” ― Christina Westover
What do you like to do when you are away from work?
Walk our dog.
What would we be surprised to learn about you?
We both love motorcycling and we met bicycling.
