How would you describe your style?
Lauren and Lindsey are both trained in fine art photography with degrees from Montana State University. Our styles combine this classical training with a photojournalistic approach that results in photographs that are clean, thoughtful, and never intrusive.
What is your pricing?
We offer packages at several different price points. Please contact us to find out more information. We love talking to people about their wedding day coverage needs!
How many photographers will be at my wedding?
There will be two talented photographers at your wedding unless you have arranged for a custom package with more or less coverage. The second photographer is chosen from a pool of talented wedding professionals and will be there to cover the groom getting ready, to offer a different vantage during the ceremony, to provide assistance during the reception, and to capture candid photographs of you and your guests throughout the day.
Do you offer discounts for off-season or weekday weddings?
We do offer occasional discounts based on time of year and availability. We would love for you to contact us to discuss your individual coverage needs.
What is your travel fee?
Travel is included within 60 miles of Bozeman, MT. Additional travel rates will vary based on time, distance, and lodging.
What is your payment schedule?
A non-refundable retainer is required upon booking to reserve your date. The remainder of your balance is due two weeks prior to your wedding date. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.
Do you have insurance?
How far in advance do you book?
We generally book out about a year in advance. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to see if your date is available. If both Lauren and Lindsey are booked on your wedding date we are more than happy to help you find other wonderful options!
How do we hire you?
We can send you a contract to sign electronically. A non-refundable retainer is due upon signing to reserve your date.
Should I give you a shot list?
Weddings are dynamic, vibrant, and emotional days, and each and every wedding is unique – it’s part of why we love them so much! With that in mind, please know that we do not shoot off of “shot lists” or pinterest boards. we DO think they are wonderful tools to help us better understand what is important to you and for us to use together to share ideas and we should absolutely use them for that purpose, but at the end of the day we believe you will be happier with your photos if your photographer is free to capture your wedding day, yours emotions, and your unscripted moments in a way that tells your unique story. We encourage you to help us craft the way your story will be told by sharing with us what is important to you – the relationships, moments, and details you look forward to remembering from your wedding day. Please feel free to reach out at any time with your thoughts and ideas!
What do we do if it rains or snows on our wedding day?
Relax and enjoy! Most venues will have a backup plan in place for rainy days. We can and will shoot in any weather, and depending on how adventurous you are feeling it may be a great opportunity to get some super original shots!
Can you stay late?
You bet! Additional hours of coverage can be added on at any time up to and on the wedding day. We can simply send you an additional invoice for any extra charges.
How are our photos delivered?
Your photos are delivered directly to you in a private online gallery. When your photos are ready, you will receive an email with a link to the gallery of images, plus a download pin that allows you to save all of your photos directly to your computer or hard drive. As technology is always changing, we do not deliver via CD or USB, but encourage you to save to as many of these devices as you would like! Gallery images are hosted for a minimum of one year from the date of delivery, so we recommend saving and backing up your images as soon as possible.
How long will it take to receive our photos?
The summer wedding season in Montana is a busy one! We often find ourselves in front of our computers well past midnight, editing photos like maniacs. We do our very best to deliver a completed gallery within 8 weeks of a wedding. It is of utmost importance to us that we deliver a product of incredible quality, and each photo from your wedding receives personal attention – we do not batch edit.
How many photos will we receive?
We work very diligently to provide photographic coverage of every moment of your wedding. We are there to document your day! That being said, we do not limit the number of photos you receive. We believe these are your photos and you should have them. We do the work of filtering out the outtakes – eyes closed, flash didn’t fire, etc and you get the rest! Our average delivery for an 8 hour wedding is around 1200 images.
Where can we print our photos?
Anywhere you like! Your private gallery also doubles as a secure shopping cart where you, your family and friends can order prints from a professional, nationally renowned photo lab and have them delivered directly to your door. Additionally, when you order through your gallery the photographs are given a little extra editing love by Lauren or Lindsey before being sent to print.
Can we have the RAW files?
RAW files are a little like a big blank canvas upon which we create the art that is your final product. We invest a lot of time and training into software that firstly even allows us to view these files (they are not compatible with most photo viewing applications) and secondly to take them from a flat, lackluster file to a rich, vibrant, ready to print photograph. That being said, we do not show or deliver RAW files because they are simply too big, too cumbersome, and quite frankly not all that interesting to look at.
When will we receive our album?
During the winter months (January-April) following your wedding we go to work designing the first draft of your final album. The album is designed to tell the whole story of your wedding day. A large album is designed with many beautiful spreads to choose from. You will receive a link to your album where you can look it over and contact me with your edits. The requested changes are made and re-posted for your approval. Each couple has the options of three editing sessions, which allows you to work with us directly to personalize and influence the look of the album. The length of the process will depend on the amount of edits requested.
If we did not include an album in our original package can we still order one after the wedding?
Absolutely! You can always add on albums or prints at any time.
What do we wear to our engagement session?
First and foremost, wear something you are comfortable in. Avoid solid black shifts, loud prints, horizontal lines, and logos. Aim for complimentary instead of “matchy-matchy.”
