It was a great experience. Paul is really talented and has the patience and skills to direct people. This is crucial for people like me that we are not used to be in front of the camera. The photos came out amazing!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Every shoot is different as far as pricing but we are always competitive with our rates. The cost includes time, travel, and all editing including beauty touch-ups. We offer 10% discount for law enforcement, fire fighters, and service members so be sure to mention that during your consultation.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first thing we do with every new customer is a consultation. Whether you're doing an engagement or wedding, modeling shots, family portraits, corporate headshots, or real estate, we want to know what you have in mind for the shoot. And if you don't know yet, don't worry you're in good hands! We love to collaborate to help you find the perfect location and theme.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We learned through such amazing artists such as Jerry Ghionis and Nathan Cool and have put in hundreds and hundreds of hours honing our skills. We always make sure to stay current with new techniques and trends.
