What is your photography style?
In a few short words…real, adventurous, curious and fun.
In a few longer words…. Weddings are romantic, emotional and focus on the moments as well as the beautiful environment. Portraits are curious, thought provoking and eye catching. We want our colors to be rich and our contrasts stark (no pun intended). We want to use light in the best way it’s intended and for every composition to tell a story.
How did you guys get started in wedding photography?
We met on the first day of darkroom photography class in college, many years ago. Daniel went on to pursue photojournalism, working for the college newspaper and local publications while Lindsay continued photography as a fine art passion. One day, a friend of ours from school asked us if we ever shot weddings. We hadn’t but figured, what the heck, we’ll do it. We loved it. Since then, we’ve attracted more and more portrait and branding clients, which brought us back to our fine art roots. Weddings and portraits are the best of both worlds for us. We love the storytelling documentary style of a wedding, and the slow, thoughtful process of creating a portrait.
So at my wedding, do you do “posed” shots, like family group photos?
Absolutely. These photos are just as important as anything else. With group photos, we work fast and efficient, to make sure you and your family aren’t missing from your reception for too long. We make sure we have adequate time either before or after the ceremony to take whatever group and formal shots you need.
For either type of shoot, do we need to give you a shot list?
Together we have photographed hundreds of weddings and we are very keen to every little detail of your wedding day. We will capture all the important moments and details, from your table linens to the vows to the party. Your complete wedding day coverage is in good hands. We will ask for a list of family group shots but that’s it!
With a portrait session, we are going to work closely together to ensure that your style, your vibe and who you are comes across in the photos. Together we’ll collaborate and leave no stone unturned during your session. The prize is in the process and in the end, you’ll have never looked better.
We’re really nervous about getting our picture taken–can you help us?
Um, everyone is nervous about getting their photo taken! Even us! Luckily, we are two very easy going people and not only want you to be comfortable, but have fun too. Our approach is relaxed and happy while also giving you the direction you need to make you look and feel beautiful.
Do you travel?
Yes. Whether you are across the oceans or the states, we are available for world wide travel and our bags are always packed.
Where are you based?
We are based in the land of beer, food and rain, Portland, Oregon. But we are often traveling all over for weddings. Wherever you are, we would love to meet you!
When can I expect my photos?
We want to make sure your photographs are absolutely perfect when you receive them and most complete wedding collections will be delivered within 8 to 12 weeks. At that time, you will receive your online slideshow and online gallery. But before then…we send you a little sneak peek!
Depending on the scope of the portrait session, a client will receive their photos as soon as 1 week but up to 4 weeks for a more intensive project.
