WHY OUTLIVE SHOOTS FILM

1. My Background & Roots. 2. Keeps Me Connected & Engaged  3. Artistic Appreciation 4. Film Can Not Be Replicated 100%

I dive deeper into my reason in this blog post: WHY FILM?

WHAT IS OUTLIVE'S STYLE?

I specializes in shooting medium format film and I'm not opposed to utilizing a digital camera when it's needed and appropriate. My style is journalistic with an obsessive focus to detail, light, composition, balance, and aesthetic. I utilize gorgeous - available - natural light to the best of our ability. Race and I are truly passionate about the outdoors so you will find us incorporating the environment into our work to place context to your story! We are very intentional about creating a product that will stand the test of time and be relevant 10-20 years from now which is why we don't fall into the trend trap. So to sum up "What is Outlive's style" ...The answer would be: timeless, stylish, and relevant. We don't like to fit within a particular mold which is how our films and photos stand out. If you find a company exactly like ours who shoots medium format film and equally specializes in wedding cinematography...please let us know! Seriously. We have searched high and low and we need to refer companies when we aren't available. 

HOW EXPERIENCED is OUTLIVE?

I am the primary photographer. I discovered my love for photography 22 years ago and have traveled the world shooting lifestyle photos and weddings professionally for 9 years.

WHAT ARE the ADVANTAGES OF HAVING TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS?

The more coverage the better. The exception of one photographer would be small elopements or intimate weddings where the bride and groom get ready in the same room or at the same house or hotel. Preps. One photographer can be with the bride capturing sweet exchanges and moments while the other photographer can be with the groom capturing fun and hilarious moments. Pre-Ceremony. One photographer can be capturing the energy of the B&G + bridal party while the other can be capturing ceremony details & guests. Cocktail Hour. One photographer can capture family and bridal party images while the other can be documenting the reception decor, details, and guests at cocktail hour. Reception. One photographer can capture the reaction of the bride and groom while the other can capture the reactions of the guests. 

BENEFITS OF HAVING A PHOTO ALBUM

People say albums aren't necessary and unless you are a designer, have a lot of time on your hands, and know of the best album resources...it will never end up happening. Trust me. Having a tangible representation of your wedding day is a cherished heirloom that no price tag can suffice the value of. 

WHAT YOUR ONLINE GALLERY WILL LOOK LIKE

The best delivery method is from a beautiful online photo gallery. Not dropbox. You can view our client galleries HERE!

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?

The amount of images Outlive delivers per hour varies based on the wedding. If there are a lot of details, time for creatives, a huge bridal party, a lot of family members, a lot of guests....it is more likely that you will receive more images! On average Outlive delivers anywhere between 60-150 photos per hour.
