-We try to be as transparent and real as we can when it comes to budgets, so if you're real with us, we'll continue being real with you. Sometimes it might feel like us photographers charge a lot for just "taking photos" but often these prices don't take into consideration the amount of time we spent perfecting our skills, the money we spent on our gear, the amount of time we invest into every couple, emailing, phone calls, building wedding timelines, location scouting, shooting the wedding editing, packaging + mailing out the final product, the list goes on and on. We do so much more than take photos, we invest in YOU! We desire for our couples to feel heard, loved and cared for. We believe with all our hearts that photography is not an investment for one day but for a lifetime.
