Meet the Finalists!!!

  • And Start Voting for Who You Think Should Win!!!

This is a BIG DAY on the blog!! Today we’re sharing the Top 10 Finalists for the Wedding Collective Giveaway!! We spent hours and hours reviewing their entries and I have to say, this wasn’t easy. It’s hard to narrow dozens and dozens of entries into just ten finalists. We laughed, we cried… and I was nervous the entire time! I remember when we hosted a workshop giveaway and it was up to Michael and I to pick the winner… it was miserable! I couldn’t decide and I cried on the living room floor for a good hour! Luckily this process wasn’t quite as hard on me because we had some help. However, I still had my obligatory “Giveway Breakdown”.

When a Client Wants Less Coverage

  • Ask Anything

There are so many different questions that we receive from our inquiries. We have found that we attract less and less clients with differing views on coverage when we blog and share about what is truly an ideal wedding day. We believe that eight hours of coverage is ideal for a perfect day. We won’t shoot weddings for less than 8 hours unless it’s a VERY specific situation (like a destination wedding or elopement). We need that 8 hours to truly tell the story of the day and after 7 years in business, we’ve realized that this is the only way we want to shoot a wedding.
