Calgary Wedding Photographers: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Here's a selection of frequently asked questions we have received as professional photographers.

Wedding Portraits at the Golf Course

What is your photography style?

We are creative storytellers and use a mix of styles during the wedding day. We are specializing in modern wedding photography, blending documentary storytelling approach with creative portraits. This style helps us to photograph a unique story and capture candid moments of the wedding day. You will find us using natural light to capture authentic moments during the bride's or groom's preparation/getting ready time. Next, we will bring out our off-camera flashes to create some creative portraits for you. We will go above and beyond to capture your day's unique moments that you and your family will remember and cherish forever.

Do you offer elopements and micro weddings?

We photograph elopements and micro weddings (also known as Zoom or Tiny or Intimate weddings). We created this photography coverage for couples who decided to have friends and family-only wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact us to check our availability and coverage pricing.

Please check Alberta Government gathering restrictions and event regulations page for the latest updates.

What is included in the wedding coverage?

We have different types of day coverage: full-day, half-day and most recently micro weddings. It all depends on your requirements. Wedding coverage also includes:

  • a complimentary engagement session, because it's a perfect opportunity to work and click with us before your wedding;
  • secure online gallery with your wedding images;
  • edited images in a safe, password-protected digital download gallery with a print release (so you can print photos in any photo lab);
  • and a couple of sneak peeks after your wedding day.

Do you travel?

Yes, we do! We travel free of charge in Alberta. At least the first 4 hours of drive from Calgary. Accommodations are extra for an overnight stay for an early morning wedding coverage outside Calgary or for over 4 hours drive. We don't want to jeopardize your big day by getting stuck in traffic. All out of Alberta and international weddings will have to be covered with flights/travel fees and accommodations.

When will we receive our images?

A couple of days after your wedding, we will have one or two "sneak peeks" ready to share with your friends and family. The rest of the images will be delivered in 6 to 8 weeks. We will upload them to a secure web gallery, so you and your guests can review and download pictures.

By that time, we will also prepare your slideshow to see your wedding day story from start to finish.

You can check examples of the previous wedding slideshows on our Wedding Days Stories page.
