  • Scott and Lisa go out of their way to make photography fun :) we had a fabulous time with them at the schagticoke fair for our engagement session! They showed up on time for the "getting ready pictures" and were extremely flexible with the time line because they allotted enough cushion between the different picture time slots in case things didn't go as planned, which of course I needed :-) We did all our pictures before the ceremony so that we could attend the cocktail hour and reception with our friends and family. Other than a couple 10 mins sessions we had outside during the reception I barely saw them. They were completely out of the way and nonintrusive just snapping up their shots. The photobooth we had setup with them and their assistant Megan was also a big hit! They are timely, professional and amazing photographers! My "teaser" picture they posted on Facebook after the wedding has me on the edge of my seat...

    Frequently Asked Questions about Photography

    Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?

    We edit each image carefully to make each image stand out and look amazing for years to come. We make these images truly timeless and try to stay away from fads that can make an image look dated years from now.

    Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?

    We have shot in everything from bright sunlight to candlelight, using both natural and artificial light. Still, nothing beats shooting with a gorgeous sunset!

    Is your media preference film or digital?

    We shoot fully digital to give us more versatility and to keep costs down for you. It also means you get more images!

    How many photographers do you work with?

    We always work as a husband and wife, two photographer team!

    Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?

    We never contract out work, so you will get us at your event.

    Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?

    All our bookings are for a full day, you get us from the start of your bridal prep until the end of your reception. We are yours for an entire day, so we only take one booking per day.

    Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?

    We have many connections within the local wedding photography business and have many people to contact to fill in if we need it. However, we have never missed a wedding and don't plan to start now!

    What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?

    We bring a full compliment of professional digital cameras with lenses and lighting to create the best possible images from your day.

    Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?

    We always carry spare equipment to make sure that even in the event of equipment failure, we won't miss a moment.

    Do you charge hourly or full day?

    All commissions are for a full day. We set no time limits, because we want to tell the whole story of your day.

    What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?

    One of the joys of having two photographers is that if one of us needs a quick break, the other one is there to keep capturing those images. We do, however, request a meal at the wedding, because we average between 10 and 12 hours per wedding, and if we don't get to eat, the pictures will suffer. A starving photographer is definitely not at their best!

    Do you charge for travel?

    We are available for travel worldwide! We just ask for a place to sleep and either mileage for our car or plane tickets. We travel anywhere within 100 miles for no fee.

    How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?

    Generally four weeks, but we make every effort to get them to you as soon as possible.

    How long can the client keep the proofs?

    Forever!

    Do you retain the copyright for the photos?

    We do retain copyright, however, every package comes with a print release so you can make as many prints as you want, and you can use the provided web sized, watermarked files for facebook, your website, or anywhere else you want

    Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?

    All clients will receive the high resolution images with a print release, allowing them to make unlimited prints of the images, as well as web optimized images for posting online.

    Will images be available for viewing online?

    Yes, we post all images on our proofing site for your family and friends to view.

    What kind of albums do you offer?

    We offer modern, custom designed, unique flush mount wedding albums with really cool cover options. You have to see one to believe it, so stop by and check one out! This is NOT your parents wedding album...

    When will the client get the final album?

    It takes roughly four to six weeks to design, and then once the album is approved, approximately three to four weeks to print. Some add on options may require an extra two to thee weeks.
