We think that it is important that you get to know us because we are going to be spending a lot of time with you on one of the most important days of your lives! So, before you book us we would like to meet with you for coffee (or drinks) or we can video chat if you can’t make it out to Thousand Oaks.
We believe that our job is both a huge responsibility and a great honor because your engagement and wedding photos are really important. That being the case, we don’t just disappear after you book us and then show up and start shooting on your wedding day.
We want you to have awesome engagement photos. So, we are happy to offer location suggestions or shoot with you in your favorite spots (presuming the spots aren’t too far away). Want our thoughts about which outfits will look best in photos or need other recommendations?
We’re just an email away and we usually respond within 24 hours on weekdays.
We also want you to have the best wedding photos possible, so we spend a significant amount of time reviewing the details you provide to us through questionnaires we will send you. On your wedding day, we always arrive early to look for the best locations to shoot based on the lighting conditions of your wedding day.
We want to make sure that we are prepared and that things will run as smooth and stress-free as possible on your wedding day. So, we also review your wedding timeline and give you advice to make the most out of your wedding from a photography standpoint and a personal one. We have photographed almost 300 weddings and we understand that you are probably planning your first one, so we are happy to help however we can!
All wedding packages include both Marianne + Joe shooting your wedding day (starting at 6 hours), USB of wedding images, and timeline review to make the most of your photography time. You can also add on things like engagement sessions or albums to personalize your package.
Couples sessions are a great way for us to get to know one another before your wedding. If you would like an additional session or just an engagement we would love to shoot with you. A la carte sessions start at 1 hr and include a digital download of your images.
Up to three hours of weekday elopement coverage with Marianne + Joe at either a local courthouse or at a gorgeous location we can help you find. Includes a digital download of your images.
**Destination Pricing varies based on location but averages approx. $6,500 (+ travel for international weddings).
*Most of our couples spend approx. $4500 - $6000 on their full photography package.
