FAQ


FAQ


Q. Do David & Sarah always shoot together?
A. David handles all of the filmmaking and Sarah handles all of the photography, so that means we may not always be shooting together as a pair. We have found that we are at our best when we are focused on on our own personal strengths. You will always get the best David & Sarah experience, no matter what. This means each package still comes with a second shooter that we trust and have trained personally.

Q. Do you shoot video & photo together? 
A. We do! We give a small discount to clients who book both for their wedding. Working as a team together is super fun and easy for us. But we also love to work with other people & book photo and video separately as well.

Q. Should we send you a shot list?
A. We love having a family shot list beforehand (we get all that info in a questionnaire we send out before your wedding!), but other than that, we like to capture things as they happen naturally. We don't want your mom fake buttoning up your dress or your bridesmaids fake laughing. We want to capture you on your day, exactly how it happened in all its raw beauty. We make sure we capture the important details that we see while also capturing those staple photos like portraits of your family.

Q. How long does it take to get our photos or film back?
A. As a general rule, we like to say 4-6 weeks for photos and 6-8 weeks for films. This varies on the time of year that you tie the knot but we always try our best to get you your photos & films as soon as we can!

Q. Can we choose our own music for our wedding film?
A. We like to choose what feels best with your story & the day, and because we license our music it limits the chances of your song choice being available. We're open to suggestions but can't guarantee that the song is available to license. 

Q. How far in advance do we need to book?
A. If we have the spot open, it's yours! We're currently booked up about a year in advance, with some exceptions. We are currently done booking for 2018 and have already booked several dates for 2019. We also have an amazing Associate Photographer, Abby who is booking for 2019 as well. If we're unavailable, our couples can still get the David & Sarah experience when they book Abby as their photographer. Abby has been trained by us & is exclusive to working with David & Sarah. All photos will be edited & styled to be consistent with our brand so clients get the same experience from start to finish.We currently don’t have an associate for wedding films.

Q. How do we book?
A. YAY, it's easy! Drop us a note on our contact page. From there, we send you an electronic brochure to choose your services and get to know us more and contract for you to look over and sign once you decide. Once we get that and your 50% retainer, your date is booked and the train is rollin'!

My husband and I were on the fence about videography, but THANK GOODNESS we took the leap and booked David & Sarah. It is SO important to surround yourself with people you feel comfortable around and click with on your wedding day, and Sarah and David are so easy to get along with, it made for a fun, relaxing day. In terms of their work, they are masters at their profession. We absolutely LOVE our wedding video and would say their portfolio is 100% indicative of the style of video they will produce for you. As a couple who planned and funded their wedding, we totally get being on the fence about videography, but what people say is true -- if you can manage it, DO IT and book David & Sarah. It will be one of the best decisions you make for your big day. Camille & Marshall // 5.4.18

We hired David & Sarah as videographers for our wedding & we are over-the-moon happy that we did!!! We fell in love with their work when we saw their portfolio and I found myself crying over a stranger's wedding! Not only are they incredibly talented, they are SO MUCH FUN. They made us laugh & we could be totally ourselves as they told us to just play. We are so glad we decided to hire them. Tiffany & Andrew // 5.6.17

David & Sarah were absolutely incredible.Upon getting engaged there was one thing I knew I wanted: DAVID & Sarah. I am in awe of their amazing talent and their incredible hearts and obvious joy. They were amazing to work with and I am stunned by their photos. we Will never be able to say enough good things about this amazing (and insanely talented!!) couple! grace & sean // 11.22.15

David and Sarah are truly wonderful and so talented. They made the whole day feel so relaxed, and we never felt pressed for time. They're also just fun to be with, so it was never awkward posing for them...especially because they were making us laugh the entire time! I also loved how natural they want the pictures to be. They never had us re-do a moment because they didn't get the shot theY wanted or had us pose in a way that wasn't our style. GORDON & ALLISON // 7.28.18

 David and Sarah were one of the greatest blessings of our wedding day. Their skill is obvious just by looking through their photos, but they also are just such a presence of peace and joy on such an important day. Our photos are LEGITIMATELY magical and they captured the day in such a special and beautiful way. erik & ellie // 4.2.17

Wow. David and Sarah are absolutely incredible. They shot our wedding photos and we are so in love. Not only do they take great photos, but they make the overall experience top notch. We loved just hanging out with them the day of our wedding. They are both so personable, relatable and just fun! We had really just met that weekend but it was like we had known them for years. amanda & adam // 10.8.16

It's so hard to even explain how freaking amazing these two are! As soon as I spoke to Sarah I knew we connected and I didn't have to worry about any part of the photography at all. They're so incredible at capturing really authentic moments and turning it into a breath-taking photo. Not only are they so talented they're the most genuine people I've had the pleasure of meeting. They make you feel so comfortable and keep you calm all day long! By the end of working with them you feel as though you've been friends your entire life and I can't thank them enough for making our day so perfect. michelle & jonathan // 10.7.17

My husband and i had the chance of seeing them again for another friend’s wedding so by the time our wedding came around in October it really felt like friends were shooting our photos. They helped us stay on schedule and really helped us feel at ease. And when the photos and video came in about a month later, let me tell you, you WILL be blown away! Nothing felt or looked too posed or forced, every photo had a very natural feel to them. They do an amazing job (even while singing and dancing up a storm ;)) Ellena & roemil // 10.21.18

From the moment we met them at our engagement shoot, we knew we had made the right decision. They eased all our worries and it felt like we were shooting with friends. On the day of our wedding, they came with two second shooters and they were just as awesome and easy to get along with as David and Sarah. They were great about letting us just enjoy the day!. Juli & Raffi // 7.20.18

One of the greatest joys of the wedding planning process, and of course our wedding day. David and Sarah brought so much fun and style to everything they touched. We had our engagement pictures, entire wedding day, and wedding video shot by them, and we're so grateful that they captured the magic we felt that day. So many of our friends and family asked who did our photos-- my good friends from college just booked them for their own wedding next year. We seriously cannot recommend them enough!
