FAQs

If your question isn't listed below, please send us a message!


HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I BOOK YOU? AND HOW?

Go ahead and contact us as soon as you know your date and venue! We take a limited number of couples a year and would love for you to be one of them! After we make sure that we’re a great fit, we’ll send a contract over to be signed and a retainer will be required to reserve your date. 


Can I share my photos and video?

Yes, and please! We want you to share this exciting time with your friends and family! We ask that when you post your images online (such as on Facebook) that you link to our website or Facebook page. Though you have the rights to your photos and video, you may not edit, sell or advertise them in any way without checking with us first.


Do you have Insurance?

Yes! We have full equipment and liability insurance. Many venues require vendors to have their own insurance. If your venue requests a copy of our documents, we ask that you give us 30 days notice so we can take care of submitting everything on time!


Do you provide a second shooter?

Yes! Nate and I second shoot for each other for most weddings. If one of us is unavailable, we have a handful of highly-skilled photographers who work with us.


Do you shoot more than one wedding per day?

Absolutely not. We want our focus to be on you and your story on your wedding day.


How do I make a timeline for my day?

We’ll work with you to create a timeline that will help your wedding day be stress-free!


Do you Travel?

Absolutely! We love traveling and are available to travel worldwide. 


Do you do destination weddings? How do they work?

Yes, we do! We consider ourselves destination wedding photographers and videographers. We love making the world a smaller place. While traveling does incur additional cost, we’ll take care of booking airfare, hotels, and transportation so you don’t have to worry about it. 


If I’m out of town, can I still do engagement photos?

Yes! We usually schedule photos one or two days prior to the wedding. This can be such a special time to pull away with your fiancé during final wedding details. In this case, we would schedule an extra night at the hotel.


When will my photos or video be ready?

Your photos will be ready 6-8 weeks after your wedding date and your video will be ready 9-12 weeks after your wedding date. Because we want you to be able to relive your day every time you look at your photos, we take our time and pause, focusing on each image and reliving your story with you to make sure we include all the best photos.


Do you offer other things like canvases and albums?

Yes, we do! We offer luxury fabric and leather albums as well as canvases. We work with the best vendors for an incredible product.


Thank God for Kelsey and Nate Schwenk! They made us feel so comfortable, cared for, and calm.
