First step — lets mingle. Click that Contact Button, tell us your story, AND let's set up a coffee date! Great imagery begins with great planning.
We will meet in a casual setting or email frequently to chat about your vision and how we can document it perfectly.
We are interested in working with inspiring people that will not shield their true emotions from us and our cameras. We love tears just as much as we love laughter and smiles.
PS: We are also huge animal lovers, so if you have a furry friend, please do not forget to mention them!
Q. CAN WE WORK TOGETHER?
We only photograph a limited number of events and sessions each year to ensure the highest quality work. We live in Milwaukee, WI but travel frequently.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE to travel and are available worldwide. Events located within the USA have a base travel fee. Travel rates vary for weddings located outside of USA.
Our recent work has taken us all over the Midwest, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Iowa, Minnesota, Maryland, Michigan, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, Florida, Colorado, Iceland, and Mexico.
Q. HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
About 4-6 weeks after your session/event all individually retouched and finalized images are delivered on a USB Drive and/or with an online gallery, available for you to share, download images, and order prints.
Q. WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?
We are Canon + Nikon people. We always shoot with multiple Canon or Nikon professional bodies and lenses. We love using natural light, so you probably will not see us use our flashes unless absolutely necessary.
Q. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are currently based in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin but we will happily pack our bags and meet you wherever you are! We love to travel. We love adventure. We will go wherever there is a story to tell... which is everywhere.
Q. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD?
Ren: I will never ever say no to food within the Pacific rim. I am a huge sucker for sushi, Szechuan covered anything, miso soup, rice noodles, and of course, a great fortune.
Q. WE ARE GETTING MARRIED/PLANNING A SESSION OVERSEAS/OUTSIDE OF THE MIDWEST. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR YOU TO TRAVEL?
Fantastic question! We really love to travel and have been lucky enough to photograph some amazing weddings in some pretty incredible locations. To continue traveling we try and keep our travel costs as economical as possible, but they usual entail helping cover a few nights accommodation and a rental vehicle if needed. We commonly cover the entirety of our flights.
Q. CAN YOU HELP ME WITH MY WEDDING TIMELINE & FINDING A FLORIST, HAIR/MAKE-UP ARTIST, VIDEOGRAPHER, GETTING READY LOCATION, ETC.?
Absolutely!! We will talk extensively about your wants, wishes, and plans in regards to photographing in the best lighting conditions and capturing all the events throughout your celebration. No matter the outline of your day, please know that we are more than happy to help create a workable schedule for you. We are also more than happy to refer our peers in the industry to make your wedding day amazing!
Q. THERE ARE SO MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS OUT THERE! - - HOW DO I CHOOSE?
Our advice, go with your gut! Take a good look through the portfolios of the photographers you like and see which one speaks to your emotions the most. Do you like our photos? Do our photos make you FEEL something? Did you read our ABOUT section? Did that seem to sit well with you? We will have several weeks before your session or months before your wedding day to build a strong relationship. For our wedding clients; we will be with you all day on your wedding day, so trust me when we say, we want you to like us, even better, we want to become your FRIENDS.
Q. WHY ARE YOU PHOTOGRAPHERS?
We still can not easily put into words how much we love photography, but here goes. . .
It truly is a hybrid of things. We love photographing human emotion & interactions.
We love learning and capturing the emotions that come with the journey prior to the actual wedding day or family session.
We love getting a look into other people’s lives. We love watching people interact with each other.
We love learning what people cherish most.
We love witnessing and documenting the extraordinary and happy times & the sad and stressful times equally; we just love all of the emotions that fuel every moment.
