ABBY -- associate PHOTOGRAPHER

Abby is one of the kindest & brightest people you will ever meet. We first met Abby when she was a bridesmaid in a wedding we shot. Her contagious personality & the natural connector in her made it super easy for us to get along & more than that, want to work with her. Her ability to think outside the box & immediately adapt to any situation brings a valued element to the wedding experience. She brings so much joy to every part of the day & the best moves to the dance floor. 

In addition to being an amazing second shooter, Abby also books her own weddings through David & Sarah. When we are unavailable to shoot, our couples have an opportunity to still get the David & Sarah experience when they choose to book Abby as their photographer. 

THESE ARE THE FACES OF OUR TEAM, AKA OUR PEOPLE. 100% AMAZING & TRUSTWORTHY, 100% THE COOLEST PEOPLE YOU'LL EVER MEET. YOU MAY SEE THEM AROUND MORE THIS YEAR AS WE GROW!

We hired David and Sarah as videographers for our wedding and 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! They have a talent for capturing raw and authentic moments of love and joy and turning them into beautiful works of art. Not only are they incredibly talented, they are SO MUCH FUN. We loved hanging out with them and it was a bonus having a happy couple excited about love capture ours! I communicated a lot with Sarah and worked with her most of the day, and she was calming and helpful in addition to her video duties. I was so happy she was there following me around. They made us laugh and we could be totally ourselves as they told us to just play. We are so glad we decided to hire them and we are excited about having a video of our favorite day to watch over and over in the decades to come!

David & Sarah were absolutely incredible. They did both my husband and I's engagement and wedding photos and I could not be happier. Upon getting engaged there was one thing I knew I wanted: 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 her photos. Will never be able to say enough good things about this amazing (and insanely talented!!) couple!

+grace & sean +

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. They are dear friends to my husband and I, and it meant so much that they chose to travel all the way to Seattle to shoot our wedding! Our photos are legitametly magical and they captured the day in such a special and beautiful way. I couldn't have hoped for them to be better!

David and Sarah are not only the sweetest people you will meet but they are so gifted at what they do. They have the ability to tell a very special story of the people they are taking photos of or making a video for. I have NOTHING but good things to say about these two, bravo.

+ nate & nicole +

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. Even if the photos weren't as great as they are, we would have still wanted them because they gave us a great experience. Luckily they're great photographers AND great people. They worked with our budget and the fact that we lived 9 hours away. Love them!

+amanda & adam+

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. We adore them.

FAQ


FAQ


Q. Do David & Sarah always shoot together?
A. Most of the time, yes. And if we don't, one of our trained & very trustworthy team members will always be with us to step in. You will always get the best David & Sarah experience, no matter what.

Q. Do you shoot video & photo together? 
A. We do! To give you the best experience and to make sure our clients don't settle in any area, we don't offer a combo/discounted package for both. If a client would like both photo & video, the packages will each be full price. That way, we ensure that nothing is compromised & the memories of your wedding day will be preserved well and with excellence.

Q. What kind of equipment do you use?
A. We shoot with Canon 5D Mark III's, Sigma & Canon 35mm 1.4 and Sigma & Canon 50mm 1.4. Those are our go to lenses for portraits & weddings but we do carry along a few extras for when we need something different. For video we use Panasonic Gh4's, quality stabilizations and microphones as well as everything we need to create a quality film for you!

Q. Do you travel?
A. YES! We love to travel. Don't be shy if you don't live in our local areas, we are so down for a good adventure.

Q. What does "all day coverage" mean?
A. We believe that there shouldn't be a limit on capturing your story, so we're yours all day & however long you want us! However we'd love to help create a timeline that makes the day relaxing & smooth for both of us!

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!

Q. How do we receive our photos?
A. All of your high resolution digital images will be hosted in an online gallery, available for you to share and download. Once we send you the gallery, they're all yours and you don't need to purchase anything more than your wedding package. We want to keep things simple for everyone & the way we see it, you already bought your photos. 

Q. Does an engagement shoot come with the wedding package?
A. You bet! We offer you the portrait session of your choice as a complimentary item with the package. It helps us get to know you better and let's you get used to how we work. 

Q. Do you use microphones in your films & can we choose our own music?
A. We do, however we don't guarantee any certain parts to be included in the final highlight film. We try to take the best of the best and create a highlight film that ends up being around 7-10min long. We also include the full ceremony & speeches from your wedding. As for music, 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 also have an amazing Associate Photographer, Abby, who is booking for 2018 as well. If we're unavailable, our couples can still get the David & Sarah experience when they book Abby.

Q. What is an Associate Photographer?
A. We wanted to provide our clients with more options than just booking with us. Our wonderful Associate, Abby, is now booking her own weddings so we can take on more clients and celebrate with more couples! If we are unavailable or if couples love Abby's portfolio, they can directly book with her & still get the same experience from David & Sarah. Abby has been trained with 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.

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