Frequently Asked Questions

A little bit about what we do, how we work, what to expect when you're expecting photos, and more.


What kind of coverage do you offer for weddings?

We have four packages with pricing ranging from $2000-$3700 covering 6-12 hours. We also do custom packages for everything from elopements and small weddings, to full weekend or travel coverage.

Do you travel?

We prefer it :) We are based in Halifax and Sydney, Nova Scotia. Travel is included in our wedding and elopement collections. And for all other services, for trips outside of 1.5 hours from those cities, we just need to figure out a fee for accommodations and mileage and after that, we're good to go!

So we get two photographers?

For weddings, yes! Having two photographers ensures that all the moments will be captured and nothing will be missed! And for Elopements and other photoshoots, Elise will be your photographer!

How will my gallery be delivered?

Your gallery will be hosted online through a service called Pic-Time, and once we're done custom editing your photos, you'll receive an email and pin for easily downloading and sharing your high resolution images.

How many photos can I expect in my wedding gallery? 

For weddings, you can expect approximately 40-70 photos per hour photographed. 

Are you comfortable editing the different types of skin tones of People of Color?

Yes! This is something we've worked very hard on and are very proud to do. And we are always open to feedback regarding how your skin tone looks, we want it to be perfect.

Do you photograph LGBTQ+ folks?

Absolutely! Everyone is welcome. All people. All love.

Can I book a mini session for a discounted price?

Yes and no! We only offer mini session on set dates. Each season we will announce a day that we will hold a round of mini sessions. This includes multiple, 20 minute time slots with 10-20 photos delivered and the option to purchase more. Other than these dates, mini sessions are not available. 

What if I'm awkward in front of the camera?

Don't worry, that's what we're here for! :) It's our job to guide you through the photoshoot and help you with posing. We have many techniques that will help you loosen up in front of the camera and have some fun!

What do I wear?

Where whatever you feel most comfortable and confident in! If you need outfit inspiration, we'll send you a Pinterest or mood board if you would like! We always recommend that our clients choose one pattern and then everyone else in the photos wear solids/neutrals. And if you can't decide, then you can send us pictures and we'll help!
