YOUR ADVENTURE SESSION
There is a reason we call our couples sessions “adventure sessions.” We’re all about real moments, true love, genuine smiles, and serious cuddles. We believe our job is to capture emotion in a way that can be felt for generations. We want to capture your lifestyle, not just the way you look. Our shooting and editing style is artistic, timeless, beautiful, and flattering. We want your heart to swell every time you go through your photos! Every session is different, but here are some things you should be down for before booking an adventure with us:
walking on logs, crossing creeks, a little mud, a little snow, getting sprayed by waterfalls, the possibility of embracing the weather
That being said, we promise to never bring you anywhere that makes you feel afraid or uncomfortable. We are extremely sensitive to our clients’ desires, your experience is our top priority!
We want to encourage you two to wear whatever fits your style. You can go casual, dress up or you're welcome to do both, we don't mind outfit changes!
YOUR WEDDING DAY
your wedding day
On your wedding day, we will arrive in time to take photos of your details (rings, owers, special or meaningful items, etc) and you getting ready before putting your dress on. Abbi will capture those candid moments between you and your bridesmaies while Callen does the same with the groomsmen. Once you are ready we will begin taking portraits. If you are doing a first look (where you see eachother before the ceremony), we will start with that to settle your nerves and give you some time together! When it is time for your ceremony, we will be sure to capture all of those nervous glances, happy tears, and emotional moments. Right after your ceremony, we will gather your familes for formal photos. We will have planned a list beforehand with names and special groupings so everything is smooth and timely. At this time we will steal you two away for a few portraits before your reception. This is your time to breathe and relax, enjoying those first few moments as husband and wife. For elopement packages, this is often when our time ends. For full wedding days we will spend the remainder of the evening capturing the candid excitement, dancing, and activities like first dances and cutting the cake.
One of the big things we will help you with leading up to your wedding day is planning a timeline. We will send your custom timeline 2-4 weeks before your wedding day. Here are a few sample timelines:
