"The whole is more than the sum of its parts."
Wedding day magic doesn't just happen. There are many pieces that come together to produce that glowing portrait, that intimate kiss, a striking detail capture, and every other beautiful moment. We are your partners from initial consultation, planning process, to final timeline reviews, and love working together to achieve a picture-perfect yet authentic enjoyable celebration.
We believe in the beauty of sincere emotions and strive to create an environment where you feel connected with one another. With our gentle guidance we establish genuine interactions so you and your guests can look and feel your best while savoring the wonderful moments. We provide direction when it comes to styling, favorable natural light and settings to deliver our signature style images and film that you will love.
Thanks to the expert vendors in the industry who design and execute your event to perfection you can focus on being fully present and soak in all the joyful moments. This directly results in more opportunities for images and film that will remind you of the moments you loved and enjoyed. Hiring a reputable planner for your wedding will be one of the best investments you will make. If you are looking for recommendations, we would be delighted to share some of our favorite talented and trusted names.
Although thoughtful preparations, location scouting, timeline planning, styling and other nuances are impactful and important, the most beautiful component is your presence - being emotionally immersed in the fleeting moments of the day. The vulnerability to show your true love for each other makes a world of difference.
The location you choose will set the tone for your images. Make it personal while keeping in mind the aesthetic of your day: the colors, light, natural scenery, architecture etc. A special note about the getting ready location - it acts as the backdrop for initial portraits, sentimental moments with parents, bridal party, as well as details, and we highly recommend choosing a place with natural light, open space and similar feel to your wedding. We also love offering our guidance for family formals and couple session locations, considering the intricacies of your schedule and preferences.
We work on a limited number of weddings each year to ensure we can make the process personal, pleasant, and one both you and us will remember with great joy. We approach each wedding as our next best work and are so proud of all the weddings we had the honor to celebrate with exceptional couples. We are excited to connect with you and delve deep into our next beautiful story together!
We offer custom proposals for each inquiry after our initial consultation. Generally, wedding photography + cinematography coverage begins at $9,000+tax. You may book photography or cinematography separately, and the rate for each begins at $5,000+tax. We also offer collections for elopements and intimate celebrations on a custom basis. All our bookings include consultations for optimized timelines, styling and other important details.
We shoot with the latest Canon R5 & R6 cameras for photography and Canon C70 cameras for cinematography (4k definition), combined with a wide range of professional lenses, lighting equipment, drone, audio recording devices and stabilizers for optimal coverage of each situation. The main "tools", though, are the years of industry expertise, artistic vision and establishing a personal connection with you that is the distinguishing factor in our work.
Our core team Lusine, Jacob and Martin are the principal shooters. You can read more about us here. We do not outsource lead positions to other companies or freelancers.
We deliver your images through an online gallery platform integrated with professional print labs. You can share your gallery with family and friends, as well as conveniently download high resolution files. Your film is delivered through Vimeo in 4K Ultra HD for streaming as well as secure download links.
Yes, we include aerial footage in our cinematography coverage, subject to regulatory restrictions such as location, altitude, weather conditions and venue restrictions.
We approach the backup process very seriously. We shoot only on dual SD cameras so your files are always recorded on two different SD cards throughout the day. Upon the end of the coverage, we instantly back up your files on our private server, which is simultaneously hyper-backed up on a cloud system, plus a third back up on our second private server in another location.
To secure your date and reserve the proposed services we have a contract and request a 30% retainer.
