Q: HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE YOUR NAME? IT'S WEIRD...
Yeah, we know.
Utt-key. Like a golf putt.
Drop the P and add a key.
Q: DO I GET ONE OF YOU OR BOTH OF YOU?
Hey we are not for sale! OK, yes we are.
For the most part, we always photograph together. In certain special, unique situations, we will separate for the day and cover two events. Non-Saturdays have the option of hirings just one of us too.
Q: where are you located?
TJ’s at Home Depot and Shannon’s watering about a hundred houseplants. Twenty minutes ago we were at Kopp’s eating cheeseburgers! You should’ve come. OK, sorry. We take photos everywhere, and we like a good excuse to travel. But our super world corporate headquarters is located in our Milwaukee home, managed by our dog. We love to travel though. If you've got some travel plans or live outside of 53207, don't rule us out. Get at us for more information.
Q: can we take pictures on the staircase?
We're not big fans of this - seriously - what's the deal? But, if this is what your heart is telling you, we will oblige with a smile.
Q: Do you have insurance?
Yes. Our business and gear are all insured. There's a "rumor" that TJ's hair is insured for $1M too.
Q: THAT’S CUTE AND ALL, BUT WHAT DOES THIS COST?
Nine-hour wedding packages start at $4200. Soon after your wedding, you’ll get an online gallery with hi-resolution images and the rights to print. Engagement sessions start at $425.
Q: THIS ISN'T A QUESTION BUT WE ARE NOT TAKING ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS. OR A PRE-WEDDING SESSION. WHATEVER YOU'RE ARE CALLING IT THESE DAYS.
You don’t have to, but we really wish you would. An engagement session is a great opportunity for all of us to get to know each other and for you to get comfortable in front of the camera. It’s also a chance to capture that little window of time before you’re married with some non-iPhone photos, because your story doesn’t just start on your wedding day.
Q: do you do video?
Nope. But you might be interested in one of our other services, which includes (but is not limited to) custom invitations, guest books and all wedding-day paper goods designed by Shannon and TJ's bow tie-tying services (that one’s on us).
FINE, I WILL GRANT YOU THE HONOR OF BEING MY PHOTOGRAPHER. What's next?
Weet woo! We’re flattered, but you should maybe meet us first. We’re gonna be with you for your entire wedding day! What if we’re weird? What if you’re weird? (We’re aiming for a bit of both.) Upon booking, we require a deposit and the remaining balance is due on or before your wedding day. Payment plans are welcome too!
I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR ANOTHER VENDOR MEETING.
Hey, vendors are people too! Please, call us anything but vendors. Let us get you a drink while you listen to our sales spiel. (Just kidding! We are fun and are not salespeople.) We’d love to find out more about you and your wedding plans.
Q: what if it rains?
We always encourage embracing anything that comes our way (including but not limited to weather). Inclement weather is beautiful and unique in photos. If it is cold enough, rainy enough, windy enough that it would make for a shitty time, we will reschedule engagement sessions. Obviously, we can't reschedule a wedding day because of weather. We scout locations the week of your wedding that will be best with the forecasted weather.
Q: Can i give you a list of photos i want?
The only list we ask for is your family list. We prefer not to get another list. We'll get all the details, your dress, your partner, etc. The best work comes when we can fully observe your day and are not buried in lists of what to do.
Q: how long does it take to see our photos? I need to update my Linkedin photo. jk lolz. don't tell my boss.
We deliver engagement photos within a week. Full wedding delivery is generally 2-3 weeks.
