 HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

Our style is really a hybrid. We have so many inspirations that come from so many different places and try to implement them in our images. We love the raw emotion of photojournalism and the seductive, mysterious look of fashion photography. In short, our style is something we like to call “fashion photojournalism”. We believe in romantic lighting, incredible backgrounds and choosing locations very carefully. As far as our photo journalistic side – we never interrupt a moment. We never pose situations that are already so magical on their own. We are an observer most of the time with very limited intrusion only when it is desired to achieve a particular artistic vision. Ninety percent of our images are completely natural and un-posed.

WE LOVE YOUR STYLE BUT WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOME TRADITIONAL PORTRAITURE. IS THIS SOMETHING YOU DO?
We do traditional portraiture at most of our weddings. Even the most modern brides still want the heirlooms that family portraiture creates. We do not, however, conduct portrait sessions in a traditional way. Instead, they are very loose, fun, and show off your personality. We will spend only 20 to 45 minutes on any posed photographs out of a typical 9 hour day.

DO YOU SHOOT WITH FILM OR DIGITAL?
We are 100 percent digital. The creative latitude that digital gives is beyond compare. When we shoot, we not only shoot for the moment, but have a clear vision of what the finished image will look like. By shooting digitally, the possibilities are limitless!

I’M HAVING A RELIGIOUS CEREMONY. ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH THE EVENTS THAT WILL TAKE PLACE?
We have been blessed to have photographed many, many different types of weddings. We’ve documented Catholic, Jewish, Hindu, Episcopalian, Non-denominational Christian, Buddhist and Lebonese-Catholic ceremonies. If you are having a wedding that is not listed here we would absolutely love to learn all about the customs and events.
