First off, CONGRATULATIONS on your upcoming wedding!
Choosing a wedding photographer is an extremely personal decision and we are always honored to be a part of your day.
We have some of the best clients in the world; they are creative, unique, and most importantly crazy in love with each other (like us).
Wedding photography is a lot of things, but it is first and foremost an investment. After the ceremony is over and celebrating with your guests is done, you will want to know that your story will be remembered through the photographs of your wedding day.
We would love to talk with you in more detail about the vision for your wedding day. We also need to mention, we've got your back. Our clients are like family. We know what it takes to plan and organize a wedding and are with you every step of the way.
If you choose to hire us, you will have online access to ALL of our planning guides and tip for your wedding day. Everything is beautifully organized and easily accessible online with a tap of your finger.
Please contact us ASAP for your date availability. We take a limited number of weddings and elopements per year.
Portrait Sessions consist of: Family, Surprise Proposal, Engagement, Senior (high-school and college), Maternity, and Newborn. We love to photography people who appreciate nature. Arizona offers amazing landscapes and we work with you to choose a location that represents who you are and what you love. We have a lot of experience in the following locations: Sedona, Flagstaff, The Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, The Desert Botanical Garden, and the Sonoran Desert. For all of our sessions, we like to discuss your ideas and set goals with each other. If you choose to hire us, we give you on-line access to our much talked about "Style Guide" along with additional information and ideas to help you plan and organize your session.
How would you define your style of photography? Our shooting style is romantic, documentary, timeless, classic photography. Really, it's all about LOVE and CONNECTION.
Can we meet for a consultation? We always prefer to meet in-person. However, we understand that many of our clients visit Arizona for their vacation or wedding and planning an in-person meeting is not feasible. Therefore, we are happy to schedule a phone consultation so we can talk about your ideas, our expertise, and get to know each other.
What if we only want one photographer for our wedding? Weddings are very detailed and there is only one chance to photograph the day. We know what it takes to plan and organize a wedding. We take our job seriously; and as a husband/wife team we work together to capture the moments, assist each other with schedules, timelines, & lighting, and have TWO CREATIVE PERSPECTIVES. For these reasons and so many more, you will always have both of us at your wedding.
How much time do you spend photographing a wedding? We typically spend between 4-8 hours with you on your wedding day. It's really based upon the size of your wedding and your budget.
Are you available for small weddings and elopements? Yes! We love elopements and have a 1.5 hour minimum for small weddings. Saturday elopements have a three hour minimum and are available for limited dates. All of our elopement/wedding packages include a wedding book. It is important for us to give you a beautiful keepsake of your day.
Can we see more photographs, more specifically from a complete wedding/portrait session? Yes. Please contact us and we would be happy to send you links to our recent weddings/events. It is important that you see the creativity and consistency in our work.
Do you have other vendors that you recommend? Yes! We have been in the wedding industry for 20+ years and have worked with exceptional businesses who go above and beyond. We do our best to support these local businesses in Northern Arizona (Sedona, The Grand Canyon, Flagstaff) and hope you'll do the same. We'd love to give you recommendations based upon your specific needs.
When do we receive our photographs? For PORTRAIT SESSIONS, you typically receive your online gallery within 3-4 weeks. For WEDDINGS, it takes 4-6 weeks (on average) to receive your online gallery. We do all of our photography editing in our studio. Your entire collection of photographs are edited and retouched exclusively by Heather. If your package includes a book, it is usually at your door within 8-10 weeks.
Do you travel for destination sessions? YES! We love to travel for weddings, portrait sessions, and events. Our base of operations is in Flagstaff and we consider Sedona our "backyard". We have a lot of experience at The Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, Desert Botanical Garden, and numerous locations in the Phoenix and Tucson area. We have been traveling around the US to shoot weddings as well. Arranging travel logistics (airplane, hotel, car rental, permits, etc.) can be time consuming and expensive. We do all of our own planning to keep costs down and hassle-free for you. Please contact us for details about your destination event. We are great travelers, expert packers, and our PASSPORTS ARE CURRENT!
I have a question that's not listed? Please e-mail or call us. We ask for your patience and will typically get back to you within 48 hours. Thank you!
We're over the moon!! Your photos are simply spectacular, and we could not be happier. Some made us laugh, some made us cry, and we'll treasure them all our lives. You captured every meaningful detail, and allowed us to see and savor moments we missed in the happy chaos of the day. Your ability to frame the smallest details to bring out their beauty, and to capture the fun and most touching moments is amazing. The colors are brilliant, and there are many images that are worthy of enlarging and framing so we can look at them every day. We cannot thank you enough - this was a very important part of the event, and we're tremendously grateful that you handled it with such skill and professionalism. Thank you! From Rob (father of the bride) (Grand Canyon Wedding)
I love the photos. It was such a pleasure to work with you and watch your expertise in your craft. Thank you! Stephanie (Flagstaff Portrait Session)
What can I say? The pictures are incredible. I'm blown away. And the book! We can't stop flipping through the pages! And each time we notice a new detail. I love the pic of my dad's smiling profile, of the ladies in their hats, of my brother through the cracked door, of Genevieve between Misty and me, of Allyn and his hand gestures (so Allyn!), of my bouquet on Nena's lap and especially of Allyn and me exchanging vows. I could go on... My mom said she can tell by the photos that your heart is in what you do. I agree. Sorry to gush. I'm just so thrilled to have such beautiful images of a beautiful day. Thank you. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Sara (Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden Wedding)
Hi Heather & Shane, OH MY GOD!!!!!!! Your pictures are UNBELIEVABLE! You are the best photographers I have ever come across. Thank you so much. Your composition and creativity is spectacular. We were very lucky to have found you. Chris and Jaya (Grand Canyon Wedding)
Heather & Shane, You truly captured every moment and brought back all the emotions we felt on our wedding day! Your eye for detail and catching the very moment we want to remember for the rest of our lives, makes us so very happy that you were there. We couldn't have chosen a more professional and wonderful photographer to work with on our wedding. We wish you many many years of making couples and families as happy as we are with our photographic memories. Cheers, Gary and Anamarie (Prescott Wedding)
Heather & Shane, Keith and I want to thank you for everything on our wedding day. We had guests and family members comment on your professionalism. You were more than our photographer that day. I had so much fun with you. You made our day so perfect. We are grateful to you. Love, Stephanie & Keith (Sedona Wedding)
Dear Heather & Shane, Thank you for assisting us in making our wedding day so special. Simple words cannot begin to describe the beauty of our wedding photographs. You captured so many wonderful memories for us. Not only do Darren and I adore our photos, many people have commented on the beauty of your work. You have a remarkable gift and a real eye for capturing wonderful moments and immortalizing them. You are an incredibly talented person. As well, we appreciate and enjoyed the time we spent with you. Thank you for participating in our wedding festivities. Again, thank you for honoring us with your presence and talent at our wedding. We had so much fun with you and feel fortunate to have made such a truly wonderful and caring friend. Love, Aimee & Darren (Pennsylvania Wedding)
Heather & Shane, I just wanted to send a note of thanks for all that you did for us during (and before, and after) the wedding. Most of my family thought you were a relative of Jon's because you were so involved with everything, and Jon has stated publicly that meeting you made him want to apply to be your photography assistant (I think the Ducati had a little to do with that as well)! Seriously, thank you for everything! I never expected to find someone with your talent, candor, and sensitivity. You've found the perfect balance between sophisticated professional and enthusiastic attendant (demonstrating great sincerity with both). Thank you for being such an integral element of our day. Your friends, Samantha and Jon (Sedona Wedding)
