Wedding Photography

Candid and casual: two words that do a decent job of summing up our photography style. We can pose couples in any situation and make it look good. But frankly, we prefer to capture natural, real moments while we all hang out and have a good time! We strive to find beautiful backdrops and lavish landscapes, because they produce the most stunning of photos. (Seriously – we drive around and find these things for you all of the time!)

We like our photos to be honest and timeless. For us, that means holding to organic film aesthetics even while shooting on modern digital cameras. You should also know that we absolutely love to shoot film and Polaroids on our slew of vintage cameras. If you’re curious about vintage options, contact us – Dave would be thrilled for the chance to talk about them!

The Wedding Format aims to make wedding photography easy, fun, and stress-free. We promise to deliver wonderful photos to our new friends (that’s you!).

Engagement Photography

There are two reasons we value engagement photos. First, it gives us all a chance to get know each other a little better before your wedding. The more we know you, the better we can represent the real you in your photos. Also, you guys will know what to expect from us, which we’ve found helps you to relax on your big day. We don’t believe in stressful wedding days. :)

The second reason is simply that there is something special about the period of engagement. It’s a season you’ll never get back, and we think it should be celebrated and memorialized.
