Wedding Photography Proposal

For Sydney + Jacob

Hey Sydney + Jacob!

We’re delighted to be considered as your wedding photographers!

I really enjoyed chatting with you this morning and hearing more about your wedding. I’ve collected some information below that reviews what we discussed on the phone, along with some more information about our backgrounds and approach to the wedding day. I also have a couple of full galleries here for you to check out:

If you like what you see, let me know if you’d like me to draft a contract!

Cheers,
Moira (& Jesse)

A little bit about us…

We do things a bit differently. We’re not big on taking super-stiff, posey photos. We specialize in nontraditional wedding photography and everything you see on our website is real. Real weddings. Real couples. Real emotion.

Our goal isn’t to simply take pretty pictures, but to create works of art that are unique to you and worthy of hanging above your mantlepiece. We limit the number of weddings we photograph so we can pour every ounce of our blood, sweat and tears into each wedding.

A little bit about how we work…

No two weddings are alike, which is why we personalize our approach to every single couple. We want to get to know you, both individually and as a couple, instead of sticking you inside a box that’s been pre-determined by the wedding industry.

EXPERTISE

We have your back

We’ve been photographing weddings for a long time and we’ve seen everything under the sun. We’ll hook you up with recommendations for the best vendors, help you plan your wedding day timeline and, if you’re coming from out of town, provide a local’s perspective on what to expect from your Colorado wedding. We’re here as a resource for you throughout the entire planning process. Rest assured, your wedding photography experience with us will be easy and enjoyable.

PREP WORK

WE’RE TYPE-A SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE.

To ensure we capture the best photos we possibly can, we’ll scout your venue the day before your wedding and come up with a bunch of cool ideas for photos. We’ll know exactly what time the sun will set and where the best light will be. We’ll also coordinate with your wedding planner, venue and all of your other vendors ahead of time to make sure your day goes smoothly.

EXCLUSIVITY

WE ONLY SHOOT 20 WEDDINGS PER YEAR.

We pour every ounce of ourselves into what we do. Limiting our schedule gives us the mental bandwidth and creative space to do each wedding justice and to cultivate a unique wedding photography experience for you.

FULL-DAY COVERAGE

WE’LL TELL THE ENTIRE STORY OF YOUR WEDDING.

We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your wedding day with friends and family without feeling rushed. We’ll be on hand from “getting ready” to the final send-off, so you don’t have to worry about us leaving just when the dance floor starts rockin’.

Ingenuity

WE NEVER REPLICATE A PHOTO

Your wedding will be unique and your wedding photos should be unique as well. When you hire us, you know that your photos won’t look like anyone else’s. We’ll get to know you so that we can customize your wedding photography experience and ensure that your photos will reflect what’s meaningful to you as a couple.

Real Moments

NO MORE FAKE SMILES.

Jesse’s background is in photojournalism and he worked as a newspaper photographer long before we started shooting weddings. While we work incredibly hard on our creative portraiture, more than 90% of the photos we shoot are authentic, unscripted moments. It’s when you’re lost in the moment and unaware of the camera that your true personality shines through.

Two Photographers

AND IT’S ALWAYS JESSE & MOIRA.

We’ve developed a chemistry over 14 years shooting together and our styles perfectly complement one another’s. Many wedding photography duos are comprised of a “primary” shooter and “second” shooter. We’re more of a 1A and 1B team.

Alt Sessions

THEY’RE UNBELIEVABLY FUN.

These aren’t your typical engagement sessions. Instead of standing in a field practicing awkward prom poses, we’ll hang out and do something fun. Like skiing. Or hiking with your dogs. Or grabbing a pint at your favorite brewery. We have a long list of cool ideas and we never do the same shoot twice, so your session will be unique to you.

Photo Album

WHERE THE STORY OF YOUR WEDDING DAY WILL BE RELIVED.

Your photos are going to be epic. Too epic to be contained by your computer screen. We want you to have finished artwork that you can touch and experience with all of your senses. Something you can pull out as evidence when you’re telling new friends about how Best Man Steve fell in the pool at your reception. And that’s why every one of our couples gets a 20-page, 8×8 photo album* as part of their package at no extra cost.

*Additional pages and size upgrades available during album consultation.
