Frequently Asked Questions

Wedding Photography is what we do, our goal is to tell your story creatively, while at the same time giving you an experience that you will never forget. Our artists are trained to make sure that we meet all of your needs while providing you with everything that you need, without paying any more than you have to.

Why don’t you have a pricing and package list here on your website?

Totally fair question. The truth is that no two weddings or couples are the same, and for us to give you an accurate quote, we need to meet with you to go over everything that you want.

Weddings have so many different variables that go into them, and oftentimes people are not sure about everything that they need. The main difference between our packages comes down to the type of coverage and books that are included, and in order to makes sure that we are helping you pick the best options, we have found that setting up a quick meeting is the best way to do that.

This is a HUGE decision, and we want you to make sure that we are the best choice for you. We can meet evenings, weekends, and for clients that are out of the area we can meet via Zoom or Skype as well

During your consultation we will show you albums, prints, as well as multiple different weddings that best resemble yours. We will go over retouching and engagement session locations for you as well.

Services that we offer

Wedding Albums

We live in a digital world, but some things are still meant to be printed. Your wedding album is the cornerstone of our work on your wedding. It is the final product we will provide to you, and will have a special role to play in your family for generations to come. There are a few things to understand about wedding albums.

1. Your Wedding Album is a Storybook

Our goal isn’t to take your wedding photos, and then make an album out of the photos that were taken. Our artists are trained specifically to shoot with intention of album design in mind. That means that they may photograph 7 detail images vertically, and then one large horizontal ring shot that will go on the right side of the page. They may shoot your first look all in the same orientation and composition, with the intention of laying out the images on a spread to tell a story in motion. Point here is that your artist is not just a “picture-taker,” but specifically trained on how to capture stories that will end up in a layout.

2. We shoot and design with the intention to invoke Memory

They say that images are directly tied to memory, but did you know that something as simple as a facial expression can influence how you perceive that memory? Our wedding albums are designed to not only make you remember what was happening on your wedding day, but also to make you remember how you were feeling when the images were taken.

3. Quality Craftsmanship is key to preserving your memories

Our wedding albums are handmade in Italy by a single person from start to finish. Then go through quality control and inspection before being delivered to you. We searched the world to provide the absolute best possible quality to our clients, and that is why we are one of the only studios in California to give our clients a limited lifetime warranty on our wedding albums.

Engagement Sessions

Your wedding photos are only a part of your story. We want to make sure that we are telling your full story from start to finish. Therefore, we include an engagement session with all of our sessions in order to help you get to know us. We have a variety of locations that we know will photograph well at all times of the year. You can take a look at our engagement session location guide for more information about the best places to do engagement sessions in Los Angeles.
