The Experience 

From the very first contact until we handover the last pieces of heirlooms to you, we are here for you.

We pride ourselves in providing a 360 degrees service experience on the day of your wedding or shoot and beyond. 

We are here to guide you through your wedding planning/photo shoot preparation and give you as many helpful tips as you need along the way. 

We offer our assistance in figuring out the time line of your day and what the best time for photography and other parts are. We live and breath weddings and would love to make your wedding photography experience as seamless as possible.


Initial Contact: 

We would love to meet you in person and bond over a cup of tea, coffee, glass of wine or a dessert. We will flick through the pages of hand made albums and galleries. We will tell you about our approach, inspiration and vision. A quick call or a face time in a comfort of your own home is great too!


Everything can be done via email. We will design a custom collection for you (you can add on or remove anything you like) and once you are happy with it we will email you payment details and a contract. Once the retainer is paid you are all set. 



Engagement Session: 

Now it’s time to begin planning your engagement session. We like to run these sessions about 3-6 months prior to your wedding day (or earlier, so you can create your save the date cards with your photographs on it). We will share our recommendations on styling and most stunning location. We will give you plenty of guidance and tips throughout the whole session to prepare you for posting on the big day. We like shooting a combination of formal and candid photographs and we will teach you everything we know about what to do in front of the camera. 


Wedding Planning:

 After your engagement photos are done and send out to you we will start the most exciting part of our journey – planning the wedding. We will help to create a custom photography timeline for you and we will be in touch with your wedding planner and other creativesto ensure we are all on the same page.



We like to arrive a bit early to ensure we don’t miss any important moment as well as to walk our shooting locations chosen prior, one more time to check on lighting situation and make sure everything is in order. This will help us to work uninterruptedly in a fast paced environment of your wedding day. We like to pre-plan all shots to be taken  and try to stick to that plan on the day. This will help our sessions to run smoother. 

Getting Ready: 

This part of the wedding day is very important and shots taken then end up being our brides and grooms favorites. We will make sure to capture all your precious details you have prepared for your day, like invitations, rings, a bottle of perfume, creating most memorable, gorgeous flat lays for you. As well as capturing interactions with your bridal party, family members, hugs, kisses and sweet tears. We use a combine approach of gently guiding you as well as observing through the lenses of our cameras. 

Couple Portraits: 

We love working with our couples and help them relax and feel confident in front of the camera with our non invasive guidance. We love a look of candid, non staged, organic photographs in timeless aesthetics with raw emotions that capture the real YOU.  

Bridal party and Family: 

We like to have fun in this part of the day and capture true happiness with those who are around you. Formal portraits are as important and candid and we will be there to make sure we got it all covered. Together we will create a list of family members to be captured in formal portraits right after the ceremony to make sure we don’t miss anyone. 

Ceremony, Cocktail, Reception: 

We will make sure we take pictures of the venue and its surroundings to remind you what it looked like on the day of your wedding in years to come. We love to capture the way the sky looked on the day or the flowers that were blooming around the entrance or the beautiful arrangements your florist prepared for you, we cover it all. During the ceremony all our lenses are on you, capturing all heart felt moments. We will wonder between the tables at the reception and take photographs of your guests’ genuine reactions when they are celebrating with you. We will capture every detail form your entrance into the room with your bridal party to the cake cutting,the first danceand beyond.



We will share a small preview of your wedding few days after it. Please expect 10-20 images in your inbox from us.


Full gallery with images will be released to you 4 weeks after the wedding. It could happen faster in less busy time. This gallery is fully downloadable in web size images for your facebookor instagramor full size in only one click. You can safely share this gallery with your friends and family, create your favorites list, decide on images for your album.


We are so delighted to create a first heirloom for you of your life together – a keepsake box with print outs. It’s a beautiful linen box with silk ribbon that holds 75 print outs of most beautiful photographs from your wedding and a crystal USB stick with all of your images on it (subject to selected package). After you have reviewed your images and selected your personal favorites we will begin a layout design for your album.
