Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

Do I need a permit to get married in the National Park?

ANSWER

Yeah, most National Parks require a special use permit for events happening in the park but we are ready to help you navigate all that!!!

QUESTION

What if there's bad weather?

ANSWER

Your day is going to be what your day is going to be, but we'll make the best of it no matter what it looks like!!! The most stress-free way is to just roll with it. But, if you’re still worried, just know that we got you and we can still get great photos. If you’re worried about your dress, we’ll do everything we possibly can to help maintain the quality of it, but your dress will always have a little dirt just from you celebrating the day your way!!!

QUESTION

Do you help with the planning process?

ANSWER

While we're not wedding planners, (aka coordinating and setting up day-of or booking vendors for you - for that, having an actual planner is priceless!), in regards to actually planning your wedding, absolutely! We grew up in the area, so we have a ton of location recommendations, and we want to help your day go as smoothly as possible while also giving you the time to be intentional. We will always, always help you plan anything and everything you need!

QUESTION

How do I secure my date?

ANSWER

For elopements and weddings, you only need to sign a contract and make a $1,500 retainer to secure your date, for whenever your big day may be!

QUESTION

I never know what to do in photos or where to put my hands so I'm worried I won't know what to do?

ANSWER

Guess what. We totally get that, because we've been there too. We'll give you prompts (not the stiff, awkward prom poses, so don't worry about that!) so the whole thing is a fun, comfortable and not awkward experience for both you and your fiancé!!!

QUESTION

How many photos will I receive?

ANSWER

Minimum of 60 for engagement and couple sessions, and for weddings you can expect an average of 70 pictures per hour.

QUESTION

What's your turnaround time, and why?

ANSWER

3 weeks for engagement and couple photos, and 8 weeks for elopements and weddings. This is so we can ensure time and care are taken into editing each photo with our editing style.

For films, our turnaround time is 8 weeks for engagement and couple sessions, and 12 weeks for elopements and weddings. Films take a bit longer to craft and we take time to make each film unique and personal to you guys.

QUESTION

What happens if you can’t make it to our wedding?

ANSWER

If there were some absolutely uncontrollable situation (i.e. a death in the family) we will find someone who’s skills are equivalent and who can match our style. We'll still oversee all the editing, so that your day still looks like what you had envisioned. We'll also refund 10% of what you were custom quoted, because you won’t be getting 100% of the experience that we give!

QUESTION

Will you photoshop me?

ANSWER

We like to keep things as natural + authentic as possible so we won’t photoshop your body in anyway but let us know if you have any worries or concerns and we will pay extra attention!

I completely understand, I inherited my dad’s big ears (love ya dad) and am not a fan of them sticking out through my hair. So don't worry, I got you. -Jaira

QUESTION

Will my dress get dirty?

ANSWER

Your dress = your decision! It doesn't have to if you don't want it to!

QUESTION

Can I have my RAWs?

ANSWER

We don’t believe in delivering unfinished work, so no. A good part of hiring us to be your photographers means trusting us to edit your photos in our unique editing style, so that way it’s edited professionally and so you don’t even have to worry about it!
