The Meet Up
We want our images to give you a glimpse into a moment of your lives. That glimpse contains your engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner, and your wedding… We want to be there to capture it all: your families, your lives, your love. Meeting our clients is a great way for us all to get to know each other and for you to tell us about the amazing wedding you are planning!
The Engagement Shoot
The engagement shoot is where your story starts! You’ll have these pictures forever, so we want you to be able to look at them in 30 years and remember what you did, where you lived, and what you liked to do. Or even joke about how you are doing practically the same things 30 years later! We’re always keen to explore new places or journeying back to ones that are special to your story. Don’t be afraid to suggest a place that is not local; traveling gives us a chance to be creative and authentic, and it helps us tell your story in a meaningful way.
The big day can be crazy! We will work closely with you and/or your wedding planner to make sure everything is timed perfectly! Our goal is always to tell the complete story of the day so we like to be there from the very beginning until the last guest leaves!
Making Your Album
The wedding is finished and everyone loves the photos! Now it's time to choose photos for the album. We are as flexible as our couples...sometimes couples want us to pre-design an album if they are super busy and sometimes couples want to choose their own images for the album. Either way we will send you a proof of the design to check over before the album or albums go into production. When you get the album you can relive all the wedding moments forever!
Securing Your Images
The wedding and honeymoon are over, and you have your amazing wedding album, now it is time to make sure all of your images are secured and backed up. The proof site will stay active indefinitely for online viewing and print ordering but it is important to backup all the images yourself. If you get an album you will also receive a flash drive with all the images on it. Make copies! Give a copy to your parents or brothers/sisters. This way if one gets lost you always have a backup! The images on the proof gallery can also be downloaded and backed up as well. The images you download and the images you receive on the flash drive are the same so either method works!

From the moment we first laid eyes on Doug and Jackie's work, we knew we'd found our photographers. And from the moment we first met them, we knew we'd made the right decision. After spending less than an hour with Doug and Jackie, it felt as if we'd known them for a lifetime. And their work reflected that connection. Every session felt natural and effortless, which allowed us to be ourselves in front of the camera. The end results are nothing short of stunning.
Our feature album. Made by hand using only the finest materials available.
It is a simple, yet classic piece of art. This album transcends the styles of today and tomorrow and will be as beautiful for your grandchildren as it is today.
Each photo is hand mounted inside individually cut mats for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind album.
Boutique leather, thick mats, and classic mat designs are just a few of the many outstanding features of the matted album guaranteed to stand the test of time.
This album features thick matte (non-glossy) pages with images printed directly onto the paper.
The flush mount album makes a great engagement album or parent album.
The designs for this album are very flexible. Images can be printed the entire length of the spread. There are no gutters, which means an uninterrupted printed image all the way across the spread.
Cover options for this album include leather, fabric or a canvas photo cover.
The standard size we offer is 10×10, but larger or smaller albums can also be made.
This album features thin magazine style matte (non-glossy) pages with images printed directly onto the paper.
The press book makes a great engagement or parent album in a thinner profile book.
The design of this album is very flexible, however due to the gutter, images will be interrupted if they span the middle of the album.
Cover options include faux leather, fabric or a canvas photo cover.
The standard size we offer is 10×10, but albums that are larger or smaller can also be made.
The wedding is over, your album is made, your prints are up and your family is still going nuts over your weddings photos online!
Now, it’s time to make sure your images are secure digitally.
We encourage everyone to keep multiple backups of all digital files.
If your package includes a flash drive make sure you make a couple copies of it.
