Yay....You're getting married!! Now you're on the hunt for......EVERYTHING! This should be a fun process, but we know how much pressure there can be. Picking out colors, a venue, your dress, a DJ and of course...your PHOTOGRAPHER.

Out of everything you'll be deciding, your photographer will probably be the most important. It's a very emotional and personal day, and we'll be the people you've selected to share your most intimate moments, like getting ready, the very first time you see eachother, your first kisses. We know how important these moments are and we know that they'll only happen once.

Marie and I are a team, we've worked under all types of conditions, in all types of venues and have met so many great couples through the process. We work with you to get to know who you are and just capture those moments that you share because you're comfortable sharing them with us and don't even realize. When you look at your images that we've captured, you don't just see a picture, you feel a moment...it's a powerful feeling, and we truly love it.

Really we want to work with couples who love the idea of cherishing a moment forever, we want to work with you, because we know how much this matters.

~Diane & Marie

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
No
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Most definitely, we have all sorts of lenses and lighting that will help capture the best image in any situation. Another huge help is making sure we scout your venue before hand around the time of your wedding to check out the similarities in lighting, that way we're able to determine the best locations for photos and save on time.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We have experience in both film and digital. We began shooting on film and as digital began to get more popular we transitioned into digital as well. Digital gives you alot more range and control in the editing department, it's also alot more cost effective for ourselves and clients.
How many photographers do you work with?
Just myself, Diane & Marie. We are the photographers who will be shooting your wedding, unless we have 3 shooters. Marie and I have worked and known eachother since 2001 and have been a team for "Vivid Essence" since 2009, before we both began shooting weddings for the same studio, and various other photographers. We compliment eachother perfectly, and it defines our complete style.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely. We meet with all of our clients personally and would never substitute another photographer in our place.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No, definitely no double weddings on the same day, we want to make sure our full attention is on your wedding. It would be completely unfair if we had to leave early to another wedding or if we arrived late to your wedding. Weddings change all the time, we want to be prepared and ready no matter what.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We know a group of professional photographers provided anything should happen. We feel completely comfortable leaving full control to them if absolute neccessary....key word "ABSOLUTE".
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, we make sure to have complete camera's with multiple lenses and flashes. You never know what may occur and having that little bit of cushion makes everything a bit smoother and always eases the mind.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Depending on what your needs are, there may be an hourly fee or we may just give you a flat rate. It's all in the type of package you decide on.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Absolutely. Overtime will typically run $150 per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Well, there's never really a "break", but the only time we actually sit down is during the reception when dinner is being served. Even then our camera's are ready for action.
Do you charge for travel?
Depending on where the wedding is. If the wedding is under 2 hour driving distance then it will be included in the package. If it's outside a 2 hour distance then it will depend on the location, there may be a $50 gas addition, or the cost for a hotel for the night.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We'd like to have proofs ready within 1-2 weeks, but sometimes that's not possible and can require up to 4-6 weeks. Understand though that after an 8 hour day over 1000 images may have been captured, each image is individually corrected for color, lighting, & minor touchups. We want to make sure they are the best possible photo when finally presented to you.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
They're presented in digital format or 4x6 proofs depending on what package you decide to go with. Every package will include a disc of hi resolution image ready for you to print.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
We offer full copyright release for personal use only. If you want to use any of the images for business purposes just let me know and we can talk.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Most definitely :)
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, you'll have a 30 day, password protected gallery.
What kind of albums do you offer?
There are many different options, just let us know what you have in mind.

Diane was so so so attentive to our needs, and listened to what we had envisioned in taking beautiful and unique wedding photos. We never felt forced or pushed into doing something we did not want to do. She gave us that warm and fuzzy feeling every time she snapped a picture. I could not have asked for a better experience!! Our pictures came out absolutely stunning, and could not have asked for a better photographer. She is WELL worth the money you will spend on her services, which was a fantastic and extremely fair deal. My advice, give her a call, have a consultation with her, and snatch her up. Not only will you be impressed with her portfolio, but you will love her charm and wonderful personality. She was a great addition to our wedding! We LOVE you Diane!! xo
