Planning a wedding brings about many questions, let us simplify this part of the process by listing a few Frequently Asked Questions. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need additional information.
Where are you located and are you willing to travel?
We are based out of Southwest Missouri and service the four state area; Northwest Arkansas, Southwest Missouri, Northwest Oklahoma, and Southwest Kansas. We love to travel and see new places. Let us know where you are and we will work with you on the best way to get us there!
We love you guys and honestly cannot have anyone else shoot our wedding! How do we go about booking you?
Awesome! We love you guys too and are excited to be apart of your wedding! In order to secure your date with us, we require a retainer of $400 and a signed contract. The remaining investment will be due two weeks prior to your wedding day.
How many weddings do you shoot a year and do you book multiple weddings in one day?
We typically shoot 20-25 weddings a year and yes our schedule fills up fast! We do not book multiple weddings in one day. Your day is our main focus and we want to be 100% prepared to focus on the two of you.
How do we utilize our wedding day coverage and capture everything we want?
No worries! We are here to help you throughout the process. We pride ourselves on our planning skills and attention to detail. For example: we create wedding day timelines for all of our clients.
Do you offer wedding albums?
Yes! We feel that albums are the best way to showcase your wedding and to tell the story of your special day, that’s why we add them to all of our collections. We design all of our albums in house and use a professional lab for all of our album orders. The albums are high quality, beautiful and we take pride in providing them. Our albums are elegant and timeless and will remain beautiful throughout the years. Our designs are a modern minimalistic style and will showcase the highlights of your day flawlessly. Check them out here.
Do you provide complimentary consultations to see if you are the right photographer for our day?
We love meeting new people and hearing about their big day! All our consultations are complimentary and can be done face to face or via phone call, FaceTime or Skype.
How far in advance do we need to book a photographer?
Typically 6-12 months in advance. We highly recommend booking a photographer as soon as you have a date and venue set. If your not the planning type and your wedding is 3 months from today, no worries. Check with us on availability.
Do all of your collection include an engagement session?
All our collections include engagement sessions! We both greatly benefit in having the opportunity to get you in front of our camera prior to your wedding day. You’ll get to know us as photographers and we can learn about photographing you as a couple.
What if we find that we need additional coverage the day of our wedding?
We never leave without consulting with you first… Plus we have to take our infamous selfie with you before we go! At this time we will also ask if you need additional coverage. If you need us to stay we will charge the rates within our contract.
How will our final images be delivered?
Your final images will be delivered on a custom maple wood USB. You will also receive an online gallery for printing, sharing, and downloading. See our custom maple wood USB’s here.
What is the investment for wedding day coverage?
Our collections start at $2195. For complete details of our collections, investments and other products, please contact us here.
How many photographers and who are they?
We are Mary & Dustin, a fun-loving married photography duo and we both are included in all our collections. We love weddings and would never think about hiring another photographer under our business name.
When can we expect to see our finalalized engagement images and approximately how many images will we receive?
Engagement sessions take 4-6 weeks to complete the editing process. If you are needing the images sooner than the contracted time there will be a rush processing fee. Your images will be uploaded to an online gallery for viewing, printing and downloading. Typically you will receive 30-40 images from a 1.5 – 2 hour engagement session.
Will we receive every image taken at our wedding and how long does it take to receive our finalized wedding images?
Our focus is quality over quantity plus you don’t want pictures with eyes closed and funny faces. You will receive approximately 75-100 photos per hour depending on the flow of your day. Typically final images are delivered 8-12 weeks depending on hours of coverage and season.
Do you really feel like ninjas?
Yes, we do… Well maybe Mary more than Dustin.
