FAQs //


We really love your work and would like to start the process in booking you. Where do we begin?
Let us know what your wedding date(s) are and if we're available, let's meet! This way you can view our albums, discuss packages and get to know one another. If you would like to go ahead with the booking, a deposit and a copy of the signed contract is required to hold your wedding date.

What do you require for a deposit?
We require a 50% deposit.

Do you work with an assistant?
An assistant is almost always present at all weddings.  This frees up the photographer to focus on taking great pictures.

Where are you based?
We are based out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada but are available for travel worldwide!

What is your style?
Our style is modern, fresh, elegant, creative, sharp, vibrant, fun, energetic, colorful, engaging and well-crafted.

You can photoshop that right?
Anything can be photoshopped but essentially we work hard to get everything as perfect as possible in camera to reduce post production times. That being said, we do use minimal photoshop to enhance the vision we have in mind for your pictures. Extensive retouching is available. Rates will vary depending on the client's needs.

Do you offer two photographers?
Yes we do! We have a few trusted Associate photographers that are part of our team.

Is this your full time job?

Are you formally trained as a Photographer?
Yes, David's interest in photography developed from an early travel opportunity that took him to Tibet, Nepal & Cambodia.  He also shot his first wedding in Montana for a friend in 2000.  After many compliments on his work and his realization that capturing moments came easy to him,  he enrolled himself into the photography program at ACAD in 2002.  During his educational years, David assisted many commercial + editorial photographers in the industry.  Upon graduation, he was hired by Redpoint Media as one of their Staff Photographers to shoot for their various publications.  

Why should we hire you?
