Thank you for your interest in our photography. Your wedding day is one of the most important and special days of your entire life and it is an honor that you would consider us to photograph it. When it is all said and done, it is your photographs that will remain and, because of that, you need something perfect for you. It is our goal that you will be nothing but completely satisfied with your photographs.
Your photographers will be shadowing you throughout your entire wedding day and you ought to feel comfortable around them. Come on, who wants a stranger around snapping photos as you are getting ready?
This guide has been created to give you a closer, more detailed look at who we are, what we offer, and how this is all going to work.
As people, we really like to have fun. We like to laugh and smile and we like to make others laugh and smile. After all, we did meet on an improv comedy team. We are constantly on the move and have learned to go with the flow. We like to experience adventure, travel to new places, and meet new people.
As wedding photographers, we take our job very seriously. We know that your wedding day will be one of the most, if not the most important day of your lives. It is a day that you will never experience again, except through your photographs.
To us a wedding is not about the colors or the flowers or the centerpieces. It is not about the venue or getting featured. It is not even just about the bride.
While all of those things are very important and we will be sure to capture the details of your wedding day, to us it is about the both of you. It is about your love for each other and the commitment you will make to each other on that day.
We want to capture the moments of your wedding as they naturally happen. At the same time, we understand the need for timelines and getting to the chapel on time.
We approach weddings as Jake & Katie the people, AND Jake & Katie the wedding photographers.
We approach weddings with an attitude of “This is going to be so much fun!” and “This is a really, really big deal!”
We have created these collections based on what we’ve found fit our couples best. If one of these collections does not fit you perfectly, let’s work together to create a custom collection based on what you need by including some of our add-on options.

WHY TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Two photographers means twice the amount of coverage, so... why not two photographers?!
WILL OUR IMAGES BE EDITED?
Yes, every image you receive will have been edited. This essentially consists of color correction, possible cropping, straightening and minor retouching.
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR IMAGES?
You will receive your images through an online gallery within 6-8 weeks following your wedding. This does not include delivery of albums or prints.
HOW LONG IS OUR GALLERY AVAILABLE?
Your gallery is available for an indefinite amount of time. If, for any reason, your gallery will no longer be available, you will be notified within 30 days before the gallery becomes unavailable.
Do you travel?
We love to travel and are happy to for your big day! We can discuss travel details when we talk on the phone. Each wedding is different and we want to work with you to do what is best for your wedding.
DO WE OWN OUR IMAGES?
Yes, of course! Though keep in mind that ownership falls within a Limited Copyright release which will be provided upon delivery of images. This release allows you to print, post and share your images but keeps you from selling, submitting or editing the images in any way. Once you receive the link to download your images, you become responsible for saving, storing and backing up your images.
WHAT IF WE WANT A DISC?
Disc packs can be purchased for $100 but we can assure you that the online gallery is the fastest and most secure way to receive your images.
HOW DO WE BOOK JAKE & KATIE?
We’re glad you asked! Once you are ready to book, we will send over a digital proposal with your quote, payment schedule and contract. A 50% retainer is due to reserve your date and services. All of our booking is done online, though we only accept payment in the form of a check. Once you approve the proposal, e-sign and submit your contract and we have received your 50% retainer check, you will receive a copy of the signed contract.
Again, we are so thankful for your interest in our photography and we hope that we will work together soon and, even more so, we hope that we will be able to become friends through this experience. It is because of you that we are able to do what we love. Thank you very much.
