FAQ

What should you expect for the process?

We are a team so both of us will be at your shoot. Dee is the lead photographer, handles clients, and manages our online presence. Cory is a photographer, lighting design wizard, digital tech and editor. We collaborate as a team, using strobe lighting to capture nice, rich images. We would discuss the style and design of the photos and videos with you prior to our photoshoot. While shooting we can work together and create something amazing for you to have.

Why should I book with you?

Dee and Cory have been in the industry for a decade, and are college educated in our field.

Whether it’s commercial, wedding or portrait we want to make sure that the project is customized to match who you are.
