QUESTIONS PEOPLE like you ASKED


Below you’ll find answers to common questions we’re asked as a professional photographer in New Jersey. If you don’t find the information you’re looking for, please contact us.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

When you hire professional wedding photographers like us, you aren’t just hiring someone with a fancy camera. Don’t get us wrong, we have fancy cameras! But what makes us professional photographers is not the camera, it’s knowing how to use the camera. Understanding lighting, posing, and technology. And who has tons of experience in every situation imaginable (and who can capture memorable images even when things aren’t perfect).
We use an artistic eye to tell your story, can put you at ease during what can be a stressful day, and ensure you end up with gorgeous photos.
We are experts at modern posing, true to life editing, and making sure you actually enjoy getting photos taken. And with two lead photographers in the mix, you’ve got all the ingredients for artistic and gorgeous wedding photos.
Using our expertise, we will help you draft your wedding day timeline to make your day flow smoothly. We will also help you with other nitty-gritty details before your wedding day so you’ll feel relaxed on your wedding day.
We are a husband and wife team of photographers who work together seamlessly to capture great shots of your wedding. We’ve been photographing couples in love since 2012 and have photographed hundreds of weddings all around the world.

When you hire us, you get two lead photographers. That’s two experienced and trained photographers who can use their different perspectives to take unique and tailored photographs for you.

Our only goal on your wedding day is to capture the images that tell your story.
Having two lead photographers (especially a husband & wife team of wedding photographers) has numerous benefits. We can provide photography coverage simultaneously at two different locations especially during the getting ready part of the day. We can capture your & your partner’s reactions without skipping a beat if you plan to do a “first look” on your big day or when you see each other at the wedding ceremony for the first time.

While one of us is photographing you both during the ceremony, first dance, toasts, and everything in between, the other is capturing those tender fleeting moments of happiness and joy shared by your loved ones who surround you. Two lead photographers also translate to a great safety net.
Our photography style can be best described as a hybrid between photojournalism and direction sprinkled in whenever required, especially during your portraits. Our goal is to create images for you which are modern, warm, and full of genuine emotions. You can read more about our photography style, our approach to posing, editing, and much more here.

When you commission us for your wedding day - we are emotionally vested in you. We are with you throughout the day, to help you with whatever you may need and also manage that one family member that we all have who needs a little more finesse & care so you can enjoy the day and soak it all in!

With our sound technical knowledge in photography, we will adapt to any scenario which may arise on your wedding day. If the weather is uncooperative, we will stand in the pouring rain for an hour while taking family formals. If your flower girl is missing her afternoon nap, we will pull out our best skills to get a smile on her face.

Our promise to you is that we will deliver amazing images. Memories which you will be ecstatic to hand down for many generations to come. All of that and we will make it a fun and relaxed experience for you!
