When pricing out photography it's good to remember that you are not investing in a random person to show up to your home, or wedding and snap some pictures, but rather an individual that will spend the better part of the day by your side and provide you with one of a kind photographic art that will last a lifetime and beyond. One of our favorite aspects of this crazy business are the relationships we have been able to build with our clients. We understand first hand that it's a vulnerable thing to open up your wedding, your home, or your family to a total stranger. And believe me, we know that a lot of individuals feel a bit awkward when suddenly all of the attention is on them and they feel like they have to perform. So we take a different approach. We don't want to be strangers, and we don't want you to feel nervous. So we're an open book. We want you to get to know us and we want to get to know you. We want to have coffee with you, we want to go bowling with you, Shelby will bake you chocolate chip cookies, so when your shoot day arrives we're not strangers, we're friends. One of the best things we hear after a shoot is "That's it? That was so easy!" Well yeah! You're not going to the dentist. You're being you, and we're showing how awesome you are to the world.

Believe it or not, yes. It was my great-grandfather's name ... I'm just trying to live up to it.
No. For some reason I just came out that way.
We were married November 1, 2008 in Shelby's home town of Dallas, Texas. Best day of our lives.
Yep! It's better that way.
My (Stone) dad instilled a desire to make great photography within me. I followed that desire through by taking every photo class I could in middle school and high school. I then went to University of Colorado and studied filmmaking and fine art photography. Following college I went to work with famed filmmakers at Warren Miller Entertainment. But, I still feel like I haven't "learned" photography. Photography for me is a constant process of discovery.
Josef Koudelka and Richard Avedon. Go look at their work, you'll see why.
We book no more than 30 weddings a year. Dates are limited, so book early.
Most definitely. It's one of our favorite things to do.
Probably when everyone is getting ready. We love the nervous anticipation... the air is filled with excitement and I think everyone picks up on it.
YES! We always include high resolution digital negatives because it's what we wanted most after our wedding.
Of Course! If you can think of it, we can figure out a way to make it happen.
We currently use Canon professional gear.
Honest. Textual. Photojournalistic.
To book your date and ensure that we will be photographing your wedding, a contract and 1/3 deposit are required. We book on a first come, first serve basis, upon receipt of a signed agreement and deposit. Please keep in mind that we restrict the amount of weddings that we photograph each year and dates are limited.
To reserve your session date a 50% deposit and signed agreement is required.
Okay, we know nobody would actually ask this BUT we want to stress the importance of being on time for your shoot. The times we set are based on a number of factors, most importantly being amount and type of sunlight and are crucial in receiving the absolute best from us.
Yes, wear what you are comfortable in and makes you feel GREAT. If you feel good it will be projected onto the images. Try not to be to matchy matchy, and don't wear head to toe denim (unless thats what makes you feel great). If you're self conscious about your arms or legs, cover them up so that you'll feel your best during your session. Any other questions and concerns just give us a call.
It takes between 3 to 6 weeks for us to individually edit all of your photos and upload them to your private password protected gallery. Please understand that we are super particular and want to make sure that every photo meets our high standards before you see it AND this particularness takes a bit of extra time. We promise though, when you see the photos you will understand.
Print orders are processed on a first come, first serve basis and usually take between 2 to 4 weeks for editing, printing, and delivery. Album orders are also processed on a first come first serve basis and take roughly 6 to 8 weeks to receive after the final approval is made. Albums are custom designed and printed so we appreciate your patience with this process.
Great question. We work with a professional printer and have calibrated our machine to match their printing style. Every print we make is shown in it's true and correct color. Also, every photograph is printed on a high quality linen photographic paper and covered in an archival coating to ensure it lasts for generations to come.
Yes, and if you'd like we can set up a "registry" where your guests can contribute to your wedding package, album or prints.
Totally. We know that every individual is looking for something different and our goal is to make you happy. Have a different idea ... lay it on us.
We love people. We love making people look incredible. We absolutely adore our clients and we feel crazy blessed to be able to meet and work with so many amazing people! It's the people we meet that makes us love what we do.
