Where are you located & do you travel?
We are based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Do you edit all my photographs?
Yes we do!
All your images are culled and those that make the final cut all recieve our special touch.
We often select a few favorites for special attention above and beyond the individual image editing.
Locations and permits
There are many places that require you to get a permit or pay a fee for photography.
If you have any questions about locations or photography fees
let us know and we can help you find the answers.
How long until i receive my photographs?
Your online gallery will be ready within four weeks of your wedding day.
Final ablum delivery can take up to 8 weeks.
How many photographs will I receive?
The number of photographs taken depends on many things.
Types of events, hours of coverage, number of guests, locations... The average is 800 images
for an eight hour day. Those numbers may vary depending on the day itself.
Do we recieve raw files or unedited images?
The Raw, unedited images are not available for purchase or viewing.
The images selected for final delivery reflect our very high standards and cut images are not archived.
Do you photograph the rehearsal?
You may add rehearsal coverage to your package if you wish.
We normally do not cover the rehearsal.
What is an online Gallery?
The online gallery is a private, password protected section on our website where all of your wedding photographs will be placed online for you and your family and firends to view at any time.
It is also a secure shopping cart for you and family to order prints, cards or albums from and have them delivered right to your door.
Do we need to provide a shot list?
Other than family groupings, we would prefer you didn't. Let us explain why.
It is very helpful to know who your important family and friends are on the wedding day.
Working from a checklist is counter productive from the work you see on our website, shot lists are a great idea in theory, but we generally capture those images without prompting.
Providing us with a long list of shots will reduce the amount of wedding day documention we are able to achieve. Therefor making your gallery much different than what you have seen.
Details & business
Do you have a business license?
We highly recommend that you hire a legitimate business for your photography needs.
We have heard horror stories time after time about individuals disappearing and never
delivering their clients final images.
A true business takes great care in backing up and completing the job in a timely and professional manor
and customer satisfaction is always a top priority.

Do you have insurance?
Again, Yes! Absolutely Yes!
Professional wedding photographers should have the proper insurance for their business. Insurance protects the photographer against equipment theft, but more importantly it provides liability protection in case Great Uncle Ned trips over the photographer’s bag and breaks his leg. When wedding photographers do not have insurance, chances are they are new to the industry or are not taking their business seriously.
What type of equipment do you use?
We use multiple professional Nikon full frame cameras and lenses.
Make sure your photographer has multiple professional camera bodies during your big day. This is an oversight often missed by most brides but could spell disaster for them. Cameras do and will fail at some point no matter how new or expensive they are. Professional lenses are equally important, they help render the highest quality imagery under any conditons.
Rain, Snow or Shine our equipment is weather sealed and ready for anything.
The last thing you want is a photographer who is affraid of the elements.
Can you hold a date for me?
To be fare to everyone we do not hold dates until a deposit is made and a contract is signed.
All bookings are on a first come first serve basis.
What is your payment schedule?
A booking fee of 50% of your total balance is due to reserve your day.
The remaining balance is due two weeks before the wedding day.
If i cancel my wedding is the retainer refundable?
The retainer fee and all money collected is non-refunable. The retainer guarantees the reservation of your date and after the contract is signed we turn down all other commissions for that day.
What if you die?
Eek! knock on wood!
In the event of an untimely demise... our incredibly grief stricken partners will still
provide you with coverage.
When should we book you?
As soon as possible! We don't hold dates unless we have a signed contract.
We often book weddings two years in advance. The sooner the better!
