DO YOU ALWAYS WORK TOGETHER
Yes! We have worked together since day one. We work off of each other’s energy and have created a style of photographing a wedding in tandem that our clients love.
HOW DID YOU TWO MEET
We met at UBC. Jeff was doing his undergrad in Visual Arts and Cat was taking an elective in his class. He thought she was Australian (which she’s not) and we all had a laugh. The rest is history.
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Our goal is to capture your day as authentically and honestly as possible. True candid moments and beautifully casual portraits come together to create a library of images that bring you right back to the day.
WHAT DO WE RECEIVE AFTER THE WEDDING
No matter what customizations you make to your collection, you will always receive an Apartment signature USB and case with all your images (no watermarks and ready to print and post).
TYPICALLY HOW LONG DO WE NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR
To really capture the story of the day, we like to start around the time everyone is getting ready and finish when everybody hits the dance floor or just after your last planned event for the evening. Most of our couples get coverage for around 8-10 hours.
CAN I MAKE MY OWN PRINTS
Knock yourself out! We don’t charge or offer prints because you can get them practically anywhere. It doesn’t make sense to hold prints hostage by charging exorbitant prices for them, so we give you the digital files so you can print what you want, when you want.
HOW MANY WEDDING IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE
The number of images depends on how long we cover your wedding. Typically our clients will receive anywhere from 400-600 images.
HOW LONG UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES
Wedding and Engagement images are delivered within two to four months.
WHAT IS THE PAYMENT SCHEDULE
A deposit of $2,200.00 secures the date and our services. A deposit of $800 is required for albums. Final payment is due thirty days before your wedding.
DO YOU TAKE FAIMLY PHOTOGRAPHS AT THE WEDDING
You probably noticed there aren’t many family photographs with people standing in a line on our site. That’s because they aren’t that interesting to look at. That doesn’t mean they’re not important, we always schedule time during your day (usually after the ceremony) to get those family photos in.
WHEN DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS HAPPEN
Depends on when your wedding is and what type of a look you’re interested in. For example if you love winter but your wedding is in June in Vancouver, we could swing an engagement session up on Cypress or Whistler in January. Or we could explore the ice caves near Mt. Baker, heck why don’t we checkout Iceland together!
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR/BRING TO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION
That’s totally up to you, but dressing stylish and awesome never hurt anyone! We do usually walk around quite a bit so bear that in mind when choosing your shoes. When it comes to coordinating with your partner, think small. If you’re wearing a casual navy dress your partner could wear a navy tie, or maybe a white shirt that has thin blue lines. Coordinating doesn’t mean matching. If you’re still stuck, give us a call!
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE
We use professional Canon equipment. The best cameras and lenses, always. We use the 5D MarkIII cameras and an array of ‘L’ series lenses.
WITH DIGITAL MEDIA, HOW DO YOU PROTECT MY IMAGES FROM LOSS OR DAMAGE
We protect your images six times over! Throughout a wedding, we load our memory cards onto our macbook so we have two running copies of all your images. At the end of the day our macbook does a backup and makes another version of all your images. When we get home our editing computer get’s a copy and our server get’s two copies. Everyone’s happy when your pictures are safe!
