We use special professional lighting and equipment, giving you the high quality that you want for these once-in-a-lifetime images and moments. Plenty of backup is always available.

We like to start when you start; we don't want to miss a thing. Scott and I love starting out with a fashion shoot with the bride after she is ready with the special lighting; the brides are always amazed at how good they look and are so excited.

Special lighting techniques give you that high-end fashion look that you deserve on your special day. At night, we like to take the bride and groom outside for a special mini night shoot for some dynamic lighting and silhouettes that are sure to be among some of your favorites.

Energizing and creative; define it as a contemporary style; photojournalist with a high end and fashion attitude -- you will love your images and album!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Weddings, special events, engagement sessions, Destination Weddings, Hindi weddings, Greek weddings,

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Check with the Better Business Bureau, make sure they have a good rating. We are members of the Better Business Bureau and have an A+ rating.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Most churches do not allow flash during the ceremony. We have no problem with that because we have professional equipment and know what we are doing. If the photographers do not have the right equipment, cameras and lens that are fast and are good in low light then you will not be happy. If not your pictures will not only be under exposed but will also be grainy and dark. You have to have the right equipment and know how to use them correctly. we also use off camera lighting to avoid dark circles under the eyes and or so the pictures don't look ghoulish.

Now days there are tons and tons of new photographers that will buy the most expensive camera from Walmart and call themselves a wedding photographer. You only have the chance of capturing these memories once, so make sure you find someone experienced and qualified.

The first thing brides ask about is the price; and that's because they don't always know what to ask. If I went shopping for something I would not ever be able to replace, I would want it done right. I can't stress enough, you want someone who has all the experience, all the professional equipment, the work and style you like, and you like their personality. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. You would not call a grocery store or clothing store how much they charge for something, its important to meet with the photographer if you are able to and see everything they have to offer. They are the professionals and its worth your time in your investment of your pictures and memories.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Will we receive the negatives with the rights for printing, YES

Do you charge for travel time, NO

How many photographers - is it the owners of the business:
2, the owners of the business, husband and wife team.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. Scott and Cathy continue their education with workshops from high end celebrity photographers, conventions and training seminars all around the world.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. We have been trained by the best and it reflect in our work and referrals. We have been asked by many photographers if we would be doing workshops so we could to teach them our knowledge.
