Frequently Asked Questions
About Our Process
Can I see a full wedding gallery?
Absolutely, we have quite a few galleries available on the website, but you can request to see full client galleries, and we will be more than happy to send you some.
Do you give out the raw files?
We do not give out the raw files for various reasons. Besides the fact that raw files take up A LOT of space on your computer, they do not represent our work completely. Editing and photo selection is a crucial part of our process, and we need to be sure to protect our work, our brand, and the standard for our final images. As we try to capture as much as possible but sometimes, photos come out with closed eyes, blurry focuses, and non-optimal chin positions. The RAW files are a means to an end in photography, and we want to be sure to give you the finished, most beautiful images possible.
Do you shoot video too?
Yes, we do! We have fallen in love with the world of cinematography, and we offer special packages for videos. You can see some of the videos we’ve done here. Please don’t hesitate to inquire for videos!
Where are you located?
We are Brooklyn peeps, but we are available worldwide! Just pick the time and the place, and we will see you there!
Who will be shooting my wedding day?
We offer packages with the founder and lead photographer, Gui Benites, as well as packages with our amazing associate photographers.
What is your photography and editing style?
Our style consists of an elegant journalistic eye with a touch of fashion editorial.
What camera gear do you use?
We are one of the very few wedding photographers that shoot with Leica cameras. We’ve been slowly transitioning into shooting with Leica only so we can offer the best in the world to our clients. Besides Leica gear we only use high-end full-frame cameras, Prime lenses, and high quality lights AKA very expensive stuff!
Before Your Wedding
Do you have any timeline examples?
Yes, we do! You can request a timeline example send us an email, and we will be more than happy to help you out with that if you have any questions or need any help.
How do we book with you and how do we pay?
To lock in your date, we need a signed contract and a 50% retainer. All payments can be made online and/or via check.
Do you have business insurance?
We sure do! Our insurance covers up to 2 million dollars, and we are always able to provide a custom COI if needed for the venue.
Do you travel and do destination weddings?
Yes! Yes! Yes! We love traveling and shooting weddings all over the world, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you are planning something special in a different city or even a different country!
During Your Wedding
Do we need a second shooter?
We do like to recommend hiring a second shooter for larger wedding parties to ensure that we will capture all the details, but since every wedding is different, we always approach this during the booking process to make sure that you will have what works best for YOUR wedding.
What if our photographer is sick or unable to shoot our wedding?
While this has never happened (touch wood!), rest assured that we have a network of talented associates and close-knit photographer connections. In the unlikely event of an emergency, we'll work diligently to find a replacement photographer whom you approve of and whose style aligns with ours, ensuring your memories are expertly captured.
My partner isn't really into taking photos, can you give us directions?
Of course! Most of our clients have never had any experience in front of the camera, and it’s not their job to know how to model. So, we are always going to be sure to guide in a fun and easy-going way to make sure that we get pictures that are not only natural but also flattering for everybody.
I love your candid style but do you also take posed photos?
Sure! Our approach is very photo journalistic and natural, but we always like to make sure we get some portraits that are a little more formal for every wedding. In fact, we request a list of formal family portraits to make sure to get photos that cater to every need.
Do you have reviews from past couples?
Absolutely, that’s one of the most important tools we have to show how pleased our clients are with the outcome of our work. Please visit our reviews page on our website under 'testimonials'.
After Your Wedding
How will we receive our images and how many photos will you deliver? How long does it usually take to receive our photos?
You will receive an online gallery where you be able to download, print, and share all of your pictures, but we also offer add on albums. The total number of photos depends a lot on how long the wedding day is, but we usually count at least 100 per hour. We will send you a sneak peek the week after the wedding so you can see and share some memories of your exciting day and the full gallery 6 to 8 weeks after the wedding day.
Do you offer albums?
Yes! One of our favorite ways to look and appreciate images is on real paper. There’s nothing more beautiful than a high quality physical album or print. Please reach out to us via email if you’d like to get information on purchasing albums and prints.
Do you shoot engagement sessions?
Yes! We have a deep appreciation for engagement sessions, and we wholeheartedly recommend them! These sessions not only provide a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know the couple better but also help them feel at ease in front of the camera. As a special gesture, we offer discounted session packages exclusively for our wedding couples, and we always discuss these options during the booking process.
Where/when do you shoot engagements?
We love the idea of picking a spot that truly resonates with you, whether it's your own neighborhood, a cozy coffee shop you adore, or even a beloved pizza joint. The city is our canvas, and we're excited to explore its vibrant settings with you. Our favorite moments to capture the magic unfold are during golden hour, either one to two hours before the sun sets or in the tranquil early morning light just after sunrise. Of course, we're here to accommodate your schedule, so we'll work together to find the perfect time that works for you.
