"It's really fun!" says Dave. "there's always another unique moment to capture. Finding great images and working with our wonderful group of clients is what makes this business so much fun."

Some of the places we've
We offer each couple a complimentary Engagement and/or Bridal session (you can do both!). Our main reason for offering this is simply to get to know you and your photographic tastes a little better. Then, on your wedding day, we'll be able to better adjust to your needs.
We usually go on location for a more relaxed natural portrait, but on occasion (or if the weather doesn't cooperate!) we'll go in-studio.
If you're not in our area, we'll see about doing the session while we're traveling. We've been able to photograph numerous engagement portraits in St. Louis and Kansas, and even in Chicago and New York City. Call us about our schedule and we'll let you know what we can do.
PLANNING & ORGANIZATION
Every couple realizes the importance of planning. The more organized and prepared we are for your day, the better we'll be able to capture the action as your day unfolds. So, we do our "homework" ahead of time. About a month prior to the wedding we send out a 'Wedding Data Sheet' (as shown at right). We'll also arrange an appointment (via phone or at our studio), where we'll go over the details. At this time we'll also create a detailed list of formal portraits that you want.
If needed, we'll also scout out any locations on our own time.
Part of doing our homework means attending your rehearsal. Every wedding is different, so we like to see what you've planned for your ceremony. In addition, we'll get to check out your ceremony location and see who all the important people are. On the wedding day, we'll know what to expect and who to focus in on.
We'll also bring along copies of the formal portrait schedule that we worked out with you during our planning meeting. And, of course, we'll take a few pictures while we're there. Our compliments!
Note: On occasion, we are unable to attend a rehearsal due to prior commitments or other assignments. In that case, we may send another staff member in our place.
COVERAGE of YOUR DAY
Photographing your big day is probably the most obvious thing that we do. We capture everything and anything that adds to the pictoral story of your day. On average, we'll shoot 120 images per hour, delivering between 500-800 images for most weddings.
Other than the posed formals, we rarely interact with you or your guests. This way, we capture the story as it actually happens. Many of our past clients have praised our courteous manner and professionalism during the day saying "You were invisible, but you were everywhere".
ON THE 'NET
With your permission, we'll have images available on the internet shortly after your wedding:
The Tuesday following your wedding, we will post 30-40 of our favorite images in our Wedding of Week section of our web site. Once we've processed and edited all your images, we'll upload them to (usually your last name). They may be online before you return from your honeymoon! (with your permission, of course!) You may also order prints and choose photos for your album on
VIEWING YOUR IMAGES
About a week after your wedding, we'll have your CD Image Collections and Color Composite Book ready for pick-up or delivery. The CD Image Collections (sample CDs shown at left) contain all your images in color and black & white versions. Images on the CD are compiled in an HTML Gallery and can be viewed on any computer with an Internet Browser (you don't have to be online!). Information and Instructions are printed on the back cover of the CD.
The color composite book (example page shown at right) contains all your images in color, printed on high quality cardstock paper, and placed in a contemporary binder. We'll also include information about ordering reprints and information about how to help us create your album.
ALBUMS & OPTIONS
All of our albums are Custom Library Bound Leather Albums manufactured by Zookbinders in Chicago. Zookbinders is one of the three top-of-line album manufacturers in North America. They mount your prints on a matboard/hard-book type material with matting and then assemble the album around the matted pages. Once you've decided on your favorite images, we'll take your list and design a layout with our album software. We'll then send you a 'Flip Album Preview' (shown below) which will help you envision what your album will look like. Once we have your approval and color and cover choices, we'll start production.
All album prints are custom printed and digitally retouched. Then we send your prints to Zookbinders. If every thing goes like clockwork, we'll have an album to you within three months of your wedding.
