WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
We live on the road! We spent almost a year renovating a 1974 27 foot Airstream Overlander (follow our IG account @aluminumadventureburrito!). This year we will be spending the bulk of our time on the road, traveling in Colorado, Utah, California, Wyoming, Arizona, and wherever your wedding takes us. View our travel schedule for more details of where we’ll be and when. And if you don’t see your ideal location on there, reach out because we’d love to explore wherever you’ll be.
WHAT DOES AN ADVENTURE SESSION ENTAIL?
Adventure sessions can be anything from driving to a cool overlook, to hiking several miles to an alpine lake, or climbing a mountain. Whatever "adventure" means to you, we are open to it! The photo session itself usually lasts about 1 1/2 hours. We’re down to hike to get to the spot too, as long as its within reason.
DO YOU TRAVEL INTERNATIONALLY? WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
Yes! We love any chance to visit a new place. This year we're headed to South America for the month of January & part of February and we will be in Switzerland/France in April! We're happy to travel to your destination, whether that be Nepal, Norway, or Antarctica. Travel rates are based on the destination and include roundtrip flights for two photographers, three to four nights stay, and local means of travel (rental car, bus/train, guide).
I'M NOT SURE WHERE I WANT TO GET MARRIED, BUT I KNOW I WANT IT TO BE ADVENTUROUS. CAN YOU HELP ME FIND A LOCATION?
YES. This is one of our favorite parts of our job. We spend hours exploring hidden places, scouring google maps, and doing research on amazing and secluded spots. In fact, a lot of the couples we work with don't have a spot picked out yet. Once you book with us, we're happy to share all the location information we have with you and help you pick a spot that's perfect for your story.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
Because our travel schedule & pricing structure is constantly evolving, we generally don't book weddings more than 12 months out (with the exception of international destination weddings). We typically book stateside weddings anywhere from 3-12 months out. We like to leave room in our schedule for last minute elopements though, so even if you're planning to elope in the next few weeks, definitely reach out! We might have a space just for you.
WHAT'S IT LIKE TO WORK WITH YOU AS A HUSBAND & WIFE DUO?
As a team, we shoot together on wedding days & during sessions. Megan brings the direction & Nate brings the vibes. Megan handles editing, social media, is the primary shooter, and she's usually who you'll talk to if you email. Nate does website work, handles taxes, photographs the guys, and drives us all around. Megan is the face-to-face, Nate is the brains behind the operation. We have our system dialed in, so things are pretty seamless on a wedding day.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU USUALLY DELIVER?
This varies by session & time, but weddings range anywhere from 400-800 photos and elopements range from 200-400 photos. Sessions are typically 100+. We believe in quality over quantity and we aim to deliver the best of the best photos from your wedding.
DO YOU OFFER PRINTS & ALBUMS? DO WE HAVE TO PRINT THROUGH YOU?
We'll deliver your photos in an online gallery where you have the option to purchase professional quality prints, announcements, and frames through one of the best print labs in the US. We also offer archival heirloom albums. Feel free to email us for specifics on albums! You don't have to print through us if you have a local lab you prefer. You're given printing rights along with your gallery.
DO YOU OFFER FULL-WEEKEND COVERAGE?
Yes. This is something we are wanting to do more of! When we got married, our photographer was with us the whole time – he roadtripped with us from Texas to California and spent the full weekend hanging out with us and out guests. Those photos of the road trip and events with our family the day prior to the wedding are some of my favorite memories. Because we are storytellers at heart, we want to tell the full deal – before & after and in-between and all. This type of coverage works well if you're camping out with your friends the night before, or traveling to a destination with all of your family, or backpacking to a spot for your adventure elopement. We want to capture it all.
