Heirlooms

Q&A

[Your wedding photographer is a very important decision - I know you know that because I'm sure you have looked through a ton of great wedding photography sites.]

Everyone wants great wedding photos. That included me.

Before I met Keith or knew that I was even going to get married, I already had in mind the type of wedding photographer that I wanted.

I was in no particular rush to get married, in fact I quite enjoyed my single life in NYC - but for some reason I would occasionally sit in a bookstore with a stack of glossy wedding magazines, flipping through the pages, my eye drawn to an editorial style of photography. I would see Denis Reggie’s images in these magazines, his photos were devoid of cliche, unobtrusive, documentary in style and I knew that was exactly what I wanted.

I didn’t want trendy, I wanted iconic.

I didn’t want ruffled blue tuxedo, I wanted black tie sophistication but in a beach setting.

I wanted to see what everyone was up to at our wedding. And I wanted to look really good in my photos.

I wanted to feel my photos.

I wanted to cry when I looked at some and laugh when I looked at others.

I wanted to be oblivious to the camera but I wanted to be able to relive my wedding day years later.

I didn’t want static set ups by the photographer but instead I wanted photos of the two of us, our family + friends, the love and emotion happening all around us,

I wanted the laughter, the tears, the entire day captured in a way that would always bring me right back to these moments no matter how many years had passed.

Yes of course I needed to have posed family portraits, because these photos become family heirlooms but I also wanted photos that meant something else to me. I wanted timeless, classic, real photography. I wanted a retelling of what was going on with Keith and I and everyone that had made the voyage to St John to celebrate our wedding with us. I wanted the full story.

What I got was exactly that.

Now, almost 20 years later I look at my wedding photos and can relive virtually every moment of my wedding day. The villa perched above Trunk Bay, the smell of the light rain that fell right before the ceremony began, my friend Sarah writing out K&M in seashells collected from the beach, my sister crying almost all day + night (happy I hope!), my cousin hugging me after the ceremony, Keith and I running from the rain during our photos, the steel drum duo playing for hours because the DJ did not show up, everyone sweating and having a great time on the dance floor.

from my perspective as a bride

PHILOSOPHY

I knew what spoke to me. I knew what I liked and what I didn't.
I couldn't be happier. This is what was important to me.

What is important to you?


(PS Side note: Denis Reggie did not photograph our wedding. I loved his photo journalistic, documentary style. We were honored to have Keith's best friend as our photographer for the long weekend of wedding festivities. We wouldn't have had it any other way!)

HEIRLOOMS

"There are so many wonderful things I can say about Keith and Melissa. From the first meeting they made my husband and I feel comfortable. The two of them compliment one another so nicely and made our engagement session feel like we were just enjoying the company of good friends. At our wedding they handled our loud large families so perfectly. Throughout the ceremony and reception they captured every important moment. We cannot wait for the next important event that we can share with them. I would highly recommend Keith & Melissa to anyone who wants beautiful lasting memories of their special day".

The Reviews

We really hate to over use the term documentary style but that might be the closest. We capture moments as they unfold, real moments that have meaning, beautiful, yet with a realness to them. Most of the day we hope that you are oblivious to the camera because you are in the moment enjoying yourselves. We are focused all day on what is happening around the two of you but we are constantly looking for what is going on everywhere else as well. Your wedding images will represent a comprehensive retelling of the day - the whole story.

Your wedding day will have some of the most intimate moments of your life. Powerful, unexpected, beautiful, moving moments. We watch your story unfold in front of our cameras. Inspired. Unique.

"HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?"

Q&A

Wedding photographs are the beginning of the family legacy. Knowing how important these photographs are and knowing that these photographs will be part of your lives forever is our inspiration. These images are not only for you as a couple but for all the people you love and will love.

When I was a little girl my favorite thing in the world was to look through my grandparents photographs. Those photographs of Nana + Pep, young and dating, so obviously in love. The posed bridal portraits, the wedding photographs. The timelessness of these images. I am here because of this union, these photographs are the history, our personal family history. I am part of my grandparents and their parents and my parents - all because two people fell in love.


"WHY ARE YOU SO PASSIONATE ABOUT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?"

Q&A

It is helpful to have a list of family groupings that are important to you. We tend to work efficiently when it is time for the formal/bridal party photographs and definitely do not want anyone forgotten. Being organized and having fun is key! It is helpful to know who is most important to you so that a very meaningful photo is not overlooked because we were unaware or not expecting the photograph to take place. Letting us know of special relationships and situations is extremely helpful as well. (Mom and Dad prefer not to speak to each other let alone appear in a photograph together or maybe you and your 9 cousins like to have a photograph taken together at every wedding, whatever the situation or request, we do our best to accommodate).

Please keep in mind that no particular shot can be guaranteed. We make every effort to photograph everything you have ever dreamed of, but there are so many variables outside the control of the photographer such as weather, the inability to gather certain guests, the unwillingness of certain people to be photographed, the tardiness of the wedding party, restrictions of the venue, etc.




"DO YOU NEED A SHOT LIST?"

Q&A

There is always a photographer duo that will be less expensive, but don't underestimate the importance of experience, knowledge + being prepared. When you are hiring a wedding photographer, please review a full wedding not just their well curated highlights on Instagram. A full wedding day should speak to you - you need to be in love with the style and see enough work that you feel confident that you will be delivered an outstanding product that matches your expectations.

We have seen almost every possible problem or situation arise on a wedding day. Paying a little bit more for a wedding photographer and getting the images you want is much better than paying less and not loving your photos. We have so many anecdotes that we can share from friends and family members...just remember, there are no do overs.




"WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU?"

Q&A

Observing people and their relationships.

Travel is part of our creative process. Discovering, meeting new people, seeing new things, enjoying what surrounds us is tremendously inspiring. The sights, smells and sounds of a somewhere you have never been before, a flash mob dancing on a summer evening in a Venice piazza, a fish monger in Athens finishing a long day, roaming the streets of Jakarta not headed in any particular direction, photographing a Blues musician too talented to be performing in a seen better days jazz club, documenting relocated refugees in their new country, observing, seeing, feeling - whether it is half way around the world or in our own city.
