Make sure you have rapport/ feel at ease with your photographers. They are are with you all day! Make sure the price includes high res images with a license for you to use.

We stay relaxed... Jon makes jokes that are that bad that they are good! We also get to know clients by meeting 2/3 times before the big day for a engagement session and consultation.
What do you do for fun outside of photography/videography?
We enjoy festivals in summer, skiing in winter, catching up with friends and eating nice food.

They make the day even more special by bringing thier knowledge and passion of photography to the forefront of thier work with unique vision and a friendly and proffesional attitude, you're sure to enjoy having your wedding photographs taken as much as seeing the results!
