What is your photographic approach?

With our roots in news photography and film cameras, we unsurprisingly approach our event coverage with a photojournalistic style. That means we use available light as much as possible, and flash equipment as necessary.

For portraits, we have portable equipment including strobes, softboxes and backdrops that lets us create studio-style pictures at any location.

That said, we don't limit ourselves to a single approach. When an event calls for it, we might use techniques such as slow shutter speeds, motion blur and minimal, directional light to produce artistic, atmospheric images when scarce available light might otherwise necessitate strobes.

And to produce dramatic outdoor portraits, we often combine available light with supplemental strobes to give us the best of both worlds.

Where are you based and do you travel?

We split our time and attention between the beautiful Inland Northwest and Northern California, particularly Silicon Valley. Let us know when and where you want a photo shoot and we'll work to make it fit our schedule if at all possible.

When will we get our photos?

You will receive an online gallery link with your photos in anywhere from 24 hours to up to 1 week, mainly depending on how many pictures are involved. Depending on the service, you will be able to download photos from the gallery, share them, choose your favorites, and/or order professional-grade prints!

How many pictures will we receive?

Here too, the numbers vary widely. A basic portrait session provides six fully edited photos selected from an online proofing gallery of preview images. A multi-hour event might produce up to 200 images in the online gallery for viewing, sharing and downloading and/or purchasing.
