We're Jenn and John, owners and photographers for Moments Shared Photography.

We believe that a photograph isn't simply a piece of paper that has been processed in chemicals and tacked on your fridge. A photograph is a physical representation of a chemical process that happens between a couple, a mother and baby, a father and daughter, a dog and his best friend . . . an image of love, laughter, sadness, admiration, silliness, you name it, that image is a reminder of the people we love and the events in our lives that happen with those people.

We are given an opportunity to share our knowledge of photography with you by capturing these moments in your life and the people you shared them with in a way that you will cherish for always: a groom's hand reaching up to wipe away his new wife's tears of joy, parents documenting their child's milestones; these are the moments we want to help you share.

We love photography and the ability we have in this technology age to really share our goings-on with friends and family with such ease. We also love stunning photography, images that really show the best side of you, the perfect pinpoints in time just they way you remember them. We love the look on a couple's face when they see their wedding images for the first time. It's as though they are reliving that wonderful day all over again. We love what we do because it allows us to be a part of moments in someone's life that a lot of people don't have the privilege of experiencing.

We love what we do. It's that simple. We love photographing you.

Wedding commissions start at $2500. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We have experience with a variety of lighting situations from natural to studio, and have the ability to combine the two together to create some really amazingly creative images.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We prefer digital for most events we shoot, although we do have the ability to add film shooting in with our digital photography upon request.
How many photographers do you work with?
We always shoot with two photographers for a few reasons:
 
 1) A second set of eyes means we really can be in two places at once! 
 
 2) In the unlikely but unfortunate instance that once of us is unable to shoot, we have a backup!
 
 3) Two creative minds working together means you get a full spectrum of imagery and styles.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Beyond circumstances out of our control, we will be there. Right now our company is just the two of us and we prefer to work with our clients from beginning to end. This ensures a solid relationship when the big day comes!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We try really hard to only book one wedding per weekend. To be honest, we put our heart and souls into our work and a wedding does take a lot out of us! Giving us time to rest up after a wedding shoots means we're fresh and ready for the next couple's wedding day.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We bring a variety of tools from camera bodies and lenses (obviously), lighting for indoor and outdoor situations, inspiration sheets.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Always!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We charge by the full day. On the rare occasion we are asked about booking a shorter time period we can design packages but for the most part we're a full day photography service.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Since we feel that a wedding with all it's details and intricacies really takes a full day to photograph, you have us for the full day already. On the rare occasion we are shooting a shorter than full day wedding, our hourly rates above your package are $250/hr.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We feel that it is appropriate to assume a meal for each photographer will be provided by you. If we're asked to procure meals during your day, that takes away from the time we can spend with you. The decision is yours, though we usually have had at least one meal provided for us by our couples.
Do you charge for travel?
We do not charge for travel inside a 50-mile radius of the Twin Cities Metro Area. Outside that area, it is $0.50/mile.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We give you the expectation that within 4-6 weeks of your wedding date, your final images will be ready. Sometimes it is less than 4 weeks, but never more than 6.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Initial proofs are as digital files.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I retain the overall copyright to the images. Clients are provided a limited copyright which allows them to post, share and print the files for personal use, not for profit. I reserve the right to use the images for marketing, posting on blogs and social media sites, and for our business's profit. This is a non-negotiable copyright.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes we do retain that right.
Will images be available for viewing online?
We provide a free online gallery for our clients to share their entire event with their family and friends.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer layflat, archival custom designed albums.
When will the client get the final album?
Our custom album design process takes about 4-6 weeks from the final image selection for those that will be included in the album design. The client receives the digital album proof to approve (one redesign is included in the album packages, there is a fee for additional redesigns) and once it has been approved, it is sent for printing.
