Where are you located?
We are primarily Nebraska wedding photographers, based in Omaha and Lincoln. However, we accept 1-2 non-Nebraska weddings per year. We also offer non-Nebraska engagement sessions 1-2 times per year (hello mountains and beach)!
How long have you been photographers?
We've been shooting weddings since 2013, but Chelsea got her first camera in 2011 for her internship in Zambia.
What is your turnaround time?
Typically for engagement sessions it's 3 weeks or less, and for weddings it's 5 weeks or less. We try to get them back to you as soon as possible, but it varies based on how many shoots we have that month.
Can you photoshop us?
We don't alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or other non-permanent things (bruise, scrape, etc.) We believe you are perfect just the way you are! However, we will ask you during the questionnaire phase if there is anything you're self-conscious of or worried about so we can be extra aware of those things while shooting.
What if we suck at posing?
That is what we're here for! We work great with people who are uncomfortable in front of the camera (aka normal people). We know how to get you to look your best and be yourself. We will help create opportunities for emotion.
What's your wedding day involvement style?
We don't take over your wedding day like tyrants, but we also don't disappear into the wall. We're somewhere in between, giving you space to be present, but setting you up for success. With that said, we will ask you how you feel about that approach in your questionnaire, and you can let us know if you want us to be more or less involved.
What happens if you can't make it to our wedding?
This will only happen if it is completely out of our control (act of God, hospitalized, death, etc) but in this case we would help find a replacement wedding photographer based in Nebraska, at a similar caliber, with a similar style, to take our place.
What if there's bad weather?
It is Nebraska, so you never know what you're going to get. We are often able to reschedule engagement sessions to a later day that week! We don't believe in compromising on what our clients' want, so we will shoot when it is ideal lighting/temps for them when possible. On wedding days we make the best out of what we have and find somewhere beautiful to shoot!
Do you help in the planning process?
Heck yes!! We have created a planning guide magazine just for our clients to help you nail your wedding day. It covers everything from the first look, to the timeline, to our favorite vendors. We also love answering questions and hearing allllllll about your dreams.
What is the payment schedule?
We typically require a 50% non-refundable retainer to save your date, and then the remaining 50% is due 14 days before your wedding! We also offer a monthly payment plan option. Contact us for more info!
What is the booking process?
After we've decided we're the perfect fit for each other, we would send you a proposal so you can pick the package you want, sign a contract, pay your retainer, and then IT'S OFFICIAL! We'd send you a questionnaire, an outfit guide for your engagement session, and your wedding guide to get things rolling!
How do we get our photos?
We deliver your photos in an online gallery with a personal use release, so you can print your photos yourself and post them on social! You can also easily order professional quality prints, canvases, albums, and more straight from your gallery!
