Q: What are your prices?
A: pssshhh, EASY. here.
Q: What’s your approach to shooting weddings, and what can we expect?
A: pssshhh, EASY! here.
Q: How does booking you for a wedding work? What’s the process?:
A: Here’s how it goes down:
1) you email us from our contact page info
2) we suggest a meet-up because meeting is fun, or we videochat or phonecall or just decide through our emails that we love each other so much already because you’ve already read through our website and made it through all the run-on sentences and you’re emailing us which means you’re cool which means we love you
3) you tell us you want us
4) you give us a deposit of $500 (or more i guess)
5) we put you in our calendar.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: K, so, this answer will have 2 parts – and a foreword. Foreword: Don’t try to put us in a box! We can’t be boxed.
Part 1: shooting style – we’re people with cameras trying to make sure we don’t miss any moments. Our photo coverage is definitely on the “documentary” side, where we’re just attempting to find the prettiest, most meaningful angle of each event. I call Mat the Moments Man, or Moments Mat, because he finds moments so so well. I’m prepared to pose people who aren’t professional models when it comes to portrait time – don’t worry. But I want it to look natural and like you guys were just being you guys, you know? I’m good at making that happen as long as we mesh, which we do because you’re still reading this.
Part 2: Editing style: I don’t want to put us in a box because we’re growing changing critters and we change all the time. Sometimes an image calls for a dark moody edit, and sometimes I think it calls for a light bright super happy one. I make these decisions based on my experience and what I think looks best. Generally though, the style is “how it looked in real life, but with pizzzazzzzzzzz”.
Q: If we hire you, who will be there actually photographing our wedding?
A: Mat and Sara!
Q: Why hire a couple? Will you guys give each other sexy looks across the room and then bail to go bang in the bathroom during the ceremony or something?
A: We will give each other sexy looks and I will take a lot of pictures of Mat’s forearms when there’s nothing going on, but BUT but we won’t do each other at your wedding probably. Part of what makes us SUCH a good team is how well we know each other and can predict each others’ moves. This helps us capture different things at different times, confident that we’re getting everything because we know our places and we’ve done this a billion times together (well, like 150+ weddings as of 2022).
Q: Do y’all travel for weddings?
A: All over the world if it’s a good fit, But our main areas are within an hour of Northumberland County. Please do inquire regardless! We only charge for travel situationally (like if we’ll need to stay overnight, then it would be highly appreciated if you’d put us in a fairly nice to straight up bougie lodging situation for the night in or near the town the wedding is in)
Q: If you shoot our wedding, how many photos will we get?
A: A lot. Like, at least 100 photos per hour. Sometimes 200 per hour. It all really depends, but trust me when I say we’ll go hard and deliver more than you need.
Q: How long after the wedding do we get our photos?
A: Short answer — as fast as I can get them to you. Omg, there’s nothing worse than knowing people are waiting on you, plus I crave that dopamine hit I get when I deliver photos and people fawn over them and me and it’s a whole thing. That being said, we have kids, and a lot of clients, and life is a thing that happens. So. It might be 2 weeks. It might be a month. It could be 2-3 months. But if you need something ASAP, I will put that specific thing on top of the pile. You just gotta let me know. The chance of it being longer than 12 weeks is very, very low.
Q: What gear do you use?
A: NERD ALERT so excited.
Sara: Canon EOS R5x2 Canon RF 85mm 1.2, Canon RF 50mm 1.2, Sigma Art 35mm 1.4. I have more gear but those are my main men right there.
Mat: Canon EOS R5, Canon 105mm 1.4, Canon 35mm 1.8 Macro, Sigma 24 1.4, Sigma Art 50mm 1.4. He has more gear, too, but those are his faves. And by that I mean those are the ones that I basically demand he brings to every wedding because I’m controlling.
Our backups are a Canon 5D Mk IV and a Canon EOS R6.
Q: Do you do prints and albums?
A: We do albums of two different calibers — #1 is cheap-ish, no frills, but pretty enough, #2 is FANCY with fancy packaging and all the things. The products reflect the prices. Both are printed and made in North America, but the Fancy kind is made every time in Toronto.
You can order both prints and albums directly from your gallery tho! Woo! You can also take your digitals to whatever crap printing place you want, i don’t actually care.
Q: Can we be friends?
A: YES if you’re not d-bags. But also I’m an introvert who goes to bed at 9pm, so, unless you want to hang out during the day we might have to keep our relationship in our dreams and in a messenger box on the internet.
