Frequently Asked Questions
We love your wedding collections, do you offer any add-ons?
We do! Here's a list of some popular add-ons:
Additional Shooter ($400)
Additional Hour of Coverage ($150)
Raw (Unedited) Video Files ($325)
Love Story Film ($450)
How many pictures will we receive?
We usually end up with about 50+ images per shooting hour. All photography collections include editing and high-resolution digital files of everything on your wedding day, as well as a print release.
How long after the wedding do we receive our final pictures and video?
We are now so excited to provide a one month turnaround on photo galleries! A sneak peak will be posted within a day or two after the wedding. The work we do shooting on the wedding day is only a fraction of the time it takes to produce your final product. After the wedding is when our most intensive work begins! We promise to edit as fast as we possibly can to still ensure high quality artistic media.
How will they be delivered?
We deliver all digital media in high-definition and full-resolution via a beautiful online gallery with digital download, and these collections are not assessed sales tax when delivered in this manner. If we were to send a jump drive then Idaho state tax law would require that we collect sales tax on the entire collection. Occasionally we still get asked about DVD's (when's the last time you watched a DVD?) Visit this blog post for more information about why we no longer send physical drives like DVD's. All collections receive a print release so that you may then order prints and albums and share your images to your heart's content!
Do you travel?
We're based in Southern Idaho (we live where there are more cows than people outside of Filer and Kimberly to be exact) but we're happy to serve your wedding from Sun Valley to Salt Lake and McCall to Jackson for no travel fee other than a basic hotel (depending on the schedule the odds are good we'll be driving home for locations within 2-3 hours of us!)

Do you travel outside of Idaho?
Yes! We love to travel! We've shot weddings in Northern Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada & Mexico. Ask us about our special rates for destination weddings!
We're excited for our complimentary engagement session! Where can we shoot?
We offer engagement sessions as a free gift for our photography clients. We shoot these sessions on a weekday (and some Saturday sunrises) around the Twin Falls area. We have some amazing locations up our sleeves! If you're unable to come to us we may be able to come to you for a small travel fee.
We don't need engagement pictures. Can we exchange our engagement session for something else?
The engagement session is our gift. Not only do you get beautiful images but we're also able to get to know you at a more personal level than during the consultation. We highly, *highly* reccommend it because you'll also get practice with our posing style and be regular pros by your wedding day!
What's a "first look/formal session"?
A first look is when the groom sees his bride (in her wedding dress) before the wedding. A formal session is a portrait session with the bride and groom in their formal wear (wedding dress & suit/tux etc.). A first look is usually what starts out the formal session, although we have done a handful of formal sessions after the wedding as well. Most of our temple weddings schedule their formal session about a week before the wedding while most traditional weddings will do their first look & formal portraits on the wedding day a few hours before the ceremony.
Do we have to do a first look?
No, you don't have to do a first look, but after attending so many weddings we very highly recommend them! We very strongly feel that a first look does not take away from or replace the emotions that you experience down the aisle, instead it is an additional beautiful moment that you get to share together with just the two of you. Past clients that have been on the fence about it have all expressed that they were glad that they did! The biggest reason being that it calmed their nerves and gave them joy to spend time with their (almost) spouse before all the social obligations of hosting guests. And from a strategic standpoint, ask any wedding professional (planners, DJ's, coordinators, etc.) their opinion and they can tell you that doing a first look before the wedding makes for a smooth and rapid transition from the ceremony to the reception that everyone appreciates (have you ever been a guest at a wedding and had to wait around for an hour or more after the ceremony while the bride and groom are off taking pictures and you're stuck with nothing to do?!) With a first look/formal session we can take the time that we need to get great quality images! We can get the bridal party and family portraits taken before the ceremony so that afterwards you can go straight into celebrations! And we promise that when you walk down the aisle, the emotions you feel will have nothing to do with the surprise of your dress and seeing you for the first time that day, but everything to do with the fact that you are walking intentionally, whole-heartedly towards the one you love... about to be married!
We still don't want to do a first look. Can we exchange it for something else?
We are firm believers in you doing what you want on your wedding day! If you are set on not seeing the bride until she walks down the aisle we support that decision and we encourage you to use an hour of coverage to book a formal session in the week or two following the wedding. You may also set aside at least a half hour of time for formals after the ceremony, but keep in mind you will also need about a half hour of time for family and bridal party portraits as well. More often than not these portrait times get cut down and we only end up with a fraction as much time as we'd like. We are dedicated to giving you the best quality media possible and the only way we can ensure the quantity and quality of your portraits and video is to have a formal session (whenever it may happen to occur!)
