15 Reasons Why We Kick Tail To Work With
1. We Care About Your Story
We're not afraid to tell your story. If that means travelling to far and away places, let's do it. Does that mean photographing in a movie theater because that was your first date? Or a classroom because you're high school sweethearts? Pet lovers that want to include your dog, riding through downtown on a bicycle in the middle of traffic? Do you have to ask twice? Let's do it! these are the moments that we need to capture! We want to photograph YOUR story!
2. Love Is People. We Care about People First.
Your chemistry is what shines in these moments. The butterflies, the laughter, love and celebration. The excitement and joy of the day will seem like it will pass in a blink of an eye. And that’s why we are there first...to capture those moments so that you can relive them over and over. We want you to transcend time and re-connect with those moments 20, 30, 40 years from now like it was happening all over again. We want that energy to reverberate through you..so get caught in the moment and we’ll help you relive it.
3. Your photos won't look like phone pictures from Uncle Bob.
What's the point of spending so much money on your wedding day if your pictures are going to look no better than iPhone photos run through a Instagram filter? We're here to make sure that all your photos are incredible looking.
4. What We Focus On
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. We are moved by wonderful photography throughout history because they are raw and emotional. They are you. So we focus on the basics that make photography great. Your stories, the history and raw emotions. What we don’t focus on are fads. We won’t do things that look outdated in 5 years. We aren’t doing anything new in photography here...we’re just carrying on the torch of what great photographers have been doing for over 100 years now.
5. We Believe in Albums and Prints
What is the point of spending so much money to have memories of your Big Day living on a cold USB drive in a drawer somewhere? No one in history has ever reminisced over a USB drive. Just like no one reminisces over DVDs and CDs before that. But everyone walks by a wall with photos and thinks back, or picks up that old wedding album from your Grandparents to go through...that's why we offer Italian wedding albums in all of our packages for you to truly show off to your friends and family.
6. We use Light, Shadows and Angles to Make You Look Amazing
We know...you hate posing! It can be ackward, it can be strange. But we get it! We took courses on posing so that you feel comfortable. We continually analyze how we photograph to make sure that lighting, shadows and angles make you look your best. And we're very detail orientated...we'll make sure your hands are doing something and that the hair is out of your way. Just be you, we might interject here and there and have fun!
7. Don't Wait a Year for Photos
We know how quickly your Big Day will pass. And we want you to relive it as soon as possible. Your 1st Anniversary gift shouldn’t be your wedding photos. We average a 6 week turn around to gallery for your family and friends to view. Often quicker but never longer.
8. We Aren’t Afraid Of Showing You The Dirty Stuff
Every photographer tends to show off only their best work in their portfolio. But what we aren’t afraid of, is showing you the stuff that is challenging to a photographer. The nitty gritty night shots. The yellow lights of a hotel room. We bare it all because we know that we can capture an amazing shot anywhere, anytime. And we don’t want to surprise the clients with only half our work. We will never be accused of taking a photograph that looks like a ‘snap’. We see the photo in our heads before we press the shutter.
9. Email Or Call Us, We’ll be There
Don’t you hate someone that doesn’t pick up the phone or answer their emails? Not a problem for us. We know how difficult and stressful a wedding can be. So whatever you need, we’ll be around.
10. Size of Your Wedding Doesn’t Matter to Us
Big weddings, small weddings. It doesn't matter to us. Your story is your story, your love is yours. Backyard weddings, destination weddings, large extravagant weddings - we have seen them all. What matters most is that you are happy. And we want to be there to capture that.
11. We Can Do Better
We believe we have the passion to improve our photography every time we are behind the camera. And we also believe the industry can do better by being better ourselves.
We believe the best picture we have taken has yet to come. We only have seen a glimpse and there’s so much more to learn. We are excited about how our craft continues to develop. And we want to prove it to you.
12. We Thrive On Difficult
Our clients love how we can turn impossible shots into incredible. Our team has almost 40 years of experience combined and we are deeply passionate about making the best out of the worse. Our portfolio reflects this...we've photographed in the snow, in the rain, at night, on the beach and on windy mountain tops...we can make it happen. Any time, any day, we will make magic happen.
13. We Stay Out Of Your Way
Wedding days have many different vendors often coming together for the first time. That day depends on all of us working together like a well oiled machine. And that’s what we will do - we aren’t there to be in a turf war. We will introduce ourselves to your other vendors, discuss a plan quickly and be there to work along side your other vendors to ensure that we’re all happy and getting what we need done.
15. Awards Come From Happy Couples
We don’t care about awards. It takes time to submit to blogs and websites for photographers to get awarded. We feel like our clients don’t get the attention they deserve if we’re busy submitting for awards. Instead we focus on you, taking pictures and the important details of your day. Happy clients, happy business.
15. We Are Well Connected
Weddings aren't easy and can seem over-whelming. But we're here to help. We tell people that we want to be their "Wedding Consultants." If you need any advice or any ideas, hit us up. And if we don't know the answer, we'll reach out to our vast network to find that help for you. We're here to make your Big Day easier, not more difficult.
16. Don’t Be Nervous, Just Be You
Be you. We want you to live and be who you are. If you’re nervous or need some guidance, we’re your folks. We know how it feels to be in front of the camera - we’re not models that do this everyday - and we know that! So let us help break that nervous ice so that we can help guide your photos if you need that help.
