It ‘s not just wedding photography. Your photos are an invaluable collection of fine art that tells the story of who you are and what is most important to you. We’re not


about posing you just right. We’re focused on capturing moments, illustrating the true essence of your chosen place and the true character of those who love you. We approach photography with a sense of surprise and adventure, utilizing natural light and documentary techniques to capture emotions, authenticity and natural beauty, resulting in images more vivid than your memories. Let’s be honest, you may one day remember your wedding as a big fun blur, but your pictures will stand the test of your lifetime.

Love is a beautiful thing. Our objective is to tell the story of your day in real moments as they actually unfold with creativity and light-heartedness. We aim to create timeless, emotionally charged images, as much a work of art as a record of events.

FAQ’S What does it cost? We offer the 4 collections listed in this price guide. However, if none of them fir your needs but you are still interested in working with us you may contact us for a custom quote. For a summary of all our collections, see the final page of this document.

What is the process to book your studio for our wedding? Once you decide which wedding collection you will be purchasing we will draw this up into an agreement to email to you. You will print, sign & mail it back to us with your deposit & we’ll be all set.

What are your payment plans? For most collections we ask for 1/2 deposit and the remainder exactly one month before your wedding date. This gets business out of the way in order to keep your wedding day completely stress free- which is what we’re all about. For those who request it, we can also split payments into thirds.

Do you have a photography studio? All of our photography is done on location with the stunning mountains of western North Carolina as our backdrop.

How many pictures can we expect to get from our wedding? We cover your wedding day to the best of our ability & in the way that we see fit as artists. In our minds, that is why you have hired us. We want you to trust our creative abilities and artistic judgements. The typical number of images that you can expect to receive from your wedding is around 500 for 8 hours of coverage- give or take some depending on the events of your day. These are all color-corrected, print- ready, hi-resolution image files. Every single picture will appear exactly the way we would want to see it on our own website or hanging on a gallery wall. Please take our word for it: these will be our very best pictures from your day that best represent your story and our creative vision. This is what you can expect from us.

What do you need from us, a shot list, etc? We always ask for a timeline of your wedding day at least 1 week prior. This gives us an idea of your day’s events, and how we will cover it. If you have a wedding planner, they can create this timeline for you, if you do not, we can offer/advise you on how best to create one. If you need help considering how photography fits into your day we will happily consult with you as part of your package.

We welcome shot ideas if there’s something you feel strongly about or if there are unusual requests you make us aware of, however we do not ask for “shot-lists”. If you like what you see on our website then we believe you will be very happy with what we do naturally- which we refer to as a creative documentary style of shooting. We do not overly direct you or the events of your day. We prefer to capture events as they actually unfold. We always like to get away in a natural location with the bride & groom & wedding party if desired for portraits and fun shots, etc. If bridal portraits are a high priority then we recommend planning this into your timeline schedule or booking a portrait session separately for that.

“Matt & Jon, we have both looked through the pictures several times and LOVE them!!! We have shown both our families and they were so excited to see them. I shared the blog link to people at my work, and the designers that work for the marketing firm were just in awe of your work!! They said you should be a photographer for National Geographic or something :) Anyways, I look forward to receiving the CD and I’m about to put the blog link on my facebook page. We had a blast with you guys and I couldn’t have picked a better photographer! Thanks again!” ~ Charissa & Matt

“Matt was great! He and his team were as excited for us as any guest, and it showed in how he took pictures. He truly understood the kind of memories we wanted preserved in pictures (and film). He managed both crews and didn’t miss anything. His attention to details, his keen eye, and his professionalism made for great memories. Relaxed, knowledgeable, and thoughtful, Matt was easy to work with in every facet.” ~ Beka & Dean
