If you read the story of our wedding, then you know how we feel about the services local wedding photographers provide. Based on what we learned from our experience and stories gathered from relatives and friends, we build our offer to be the most comprehensive wedding photography service at a budget friendly price. 

What we offer:

  • 1 photoshoot (before or after the wedding)
  • 1 Signature scroll
  • 2 Photographers to cover the day, from beginning to end
  • 1 print technician for the photobooth (2 hours)
  • ALL good photos (often 1000+) will go through basic corrections and will all be delivered in the highest definition we can provide.
  • 1 Majestic Album
  • 1 Photo site for your friends to enjoy your photos

In other words, we offer you what we wished we would have been offered...

 

Before the wedding:

pre-wedding or engagement photoshoot *

A pre-wedding shoot is basically a photoshoot entirely centered around the couple. Seldom seen in North America, the practice of taking photos in wedding attire comes from Asia or Taiwan, more precisely and propagated throughout Asia. It is now customary for couples in Asia to take photos in wedding attire before the wedding day.

Because the photoshoot is done during a stress-free day (as opposed to the wedding day) the photographer and his assistant can take their time and achieve perfection.

An advantage of pre-wedding photoshoots is that it provides you with professional photos to use in your invitations, website or registry, or for a photo slide to be shown at the reception.

 

Many people aren't too warm about the idea of pre-wedding shoots, so for them, we provide engagement shoots. Engagement shoots showcase the love the couple have for one another. Though many couples still dress up for it, there are also many who choose to dress casually to have a more "genuine feel". 

Whatever you call the shooting session, we will be glad to make you look your best!

 

 

* Can be replaced by a post-wedding. See the "After the wedding" section for more details. Only 1 photo shoot is provided with the default package.

 

Signature scroll or poster

This is an example of a scroll that we use as a demo. A typical wedding scroll only has 1 picture of the newlyweds as a couple, providing plenty of space for guests to leave wishes, short messages and signatures.

Signature scroll, made of thick canvas like material, is a nice alternative to usual guest book and we are happy to provide it. The advantage of the scroll is that you have the option to hang it in your house for all to see. In order to receive the scroll in time for the wedding, we need at least 4 weeks between the time the pre-wedding / engagement shoot occurred and the day of the wedding.

 

During the wedding

 

Coverage

The wedding is always covered by our team of photographers. Since we are always 2 photographers on premise, we are better able to cover multiple points of views during important events.

We sometimes will go to great lengths just to get the best angle.

 

Generally, the photographers start their day early in the morning, as the bride and groom begin prepare for their big day. One photographer will accompany the bride while the other will cover the groom. 

Both photographers will follow the newly-weds for the entire day and will usually end their work day shortly after the last event.

 

Photobooth with instant prints

A photobooth and a print technician will be available for 2 hours during the wedding. Most couples use the service to take formal portraits with their guests. Having the formal photos printed and distributed right away removes the hassle of printing and delivering prints to each of the guests after the wedding.

 

After the wedding

Post wedding photoshoot (a.k.a. pseudo trash the dress) *

Most of the time, what people call a "trash the dress session" really mean "We don't have to be as careful not to dirty the dress photoshoot". Only a few brides (and recent divorcee) are actually eager to trash and destroy their dress. For us, it's simply a photoshoot of the loving newly-weds, away from all stress and with all the freedom to go to any location near Montreal.

Unusual locations like an old bathtub can yield wonderful photos

 

Wedding days can be stressful and usually has a tight schedule to respect and that kind of setting seldom is ideal for doing a photoshoot of the couple. Besides, with all the bridesmaids and groomsmen all dressed up, why not take the wedding day to take more photos with them and take photos of the couple on another, less stressful day?

* Can be replaced by a pre-wedding or engagement session. See the "Before the wedding" section for more details. Only 1 photo shoot is provided with the default package.


Reception of photos

All good photos of the day will be delivered in JPEG files, at the highest resolution. All photos will go through basic corrections. Other type of corrections may be done upon request.


Photo site

A common complaint from attendees of a wedding is that they don't always get to see the wedding photos, especially if they live far away from the couple's place of residence. Social Media sites like Facebook does facilitate the sharing of photos, but many feel using Facebook, for example, lacks refinement.

If you desire, we can put your wedding photos on a specially created website, featuring exclusively your photos. The site can be password protected and options to download photos can be switched on or off, according to your wishes.


Wedding album

Included in our price, the album is an impressive 11 X 14 book with 15 panoramic thick cardboard pages. No matter how I describe it, it won't do justice to just how majestic the album is, so it is best for you to see it in person.

After the reception of the photos, couples are expected to choose around 70 photos to be part of the album. Once chosen, we will re-edit them, lay them out in the album as send you proof in JPEG for inspection. Upon approval, the album will be sent to the print press. The whole process may take up to 8 weeks, sometimes more.
