We have an apartment in Newport Beach, California and a place to stay in Seattle. We love to spend our summers in Washington when the weather is nice.
We deliver wedding photos within 4 weeks. Standard time in the industry is 6-8 weeks. We are pretty proud of this turnaround – who likes waiting long? Not us. It’s not that we rush the editing, we just photograph correctly and do not depend on editing to make the image better. We are efficient.
Absolutely! The only photos we do not deliver is mid-blinking, blurry or unflattering photos that we know you won’t have any desire to print/have. Our average delivery is 600-1,000 photos. But we do not put a cap on how many. Sometimes we deliver over 1,000 photos! It just depends on how long we are hired for and how much goes on come wedding day. We do not send you any RAW (un-edited) photos – you are hiring us for our editing style and trust that we send all the right photos.
Online Gallery with full High-Resolution photos. No watermarks or logos will be on the photos. We give you a download code so you have full access to your pictures and you can share/print away.
Yes! We have them here https://www.theknot.com/marketplace/moose-studio-destination-wedding-photographers-seattle-wa-870034
We send you the contract and the package you decide to book our invoicing program, ShootFlow. It’s a non-refundable 25% deposit for photo packages. The balance is then divided into monthly payments, with the final payment due before the wedding date.
Since we book 25 weddings a year AND engagement sessions, PLUS all the time we need for editing on the weekdays, and traveling like crazy and we have tons of great reviews from past couples – we feel it is not necessary. One of the big reasons why our website is transparent is so you can know right away if we are the right choice for you. Social media is another “get to know us” approach, too. We always do Instagram and Facebook updates so you can feel connected to our personalities so that we don’t feel like strangers to you. We will certainly keep in touch often and are always easy to get ahold of through email or phone call.
Money is never easy to talk about, but we strive to make it transparent and open communication. We are full-time photographers. We don’t have a 401k or health benefits that come with a corporate company. We have to pay for everything out of our own hard earned money/pocket. While we truly WANT to work with budgets (and we always try too!) – it’s just not always available because we have a “hard cost” in order to profit and stay in business. With that being said, here are some things that make it more likely to work with you if our pricing is not within your budget. 1) Having a wedding on a Friday or Monday 2) Having a wedding during “off” season (which is December-March) OR 3) Your wedding is last minute and around the corner (within 3-6 months).
Of course! We will send you one upon request.
