WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO HIRING OUTLIVE FOR BOTH PHOTO & VIDEO?
Our company was founded on the purpose of delivering solid, beautiful, and cohesive photos and videos. We are not a photo company who offers video as an add on or vice versa. We are equally a photo company as we are a video company.
We enter the day as a mindful, respectful team - working with each other rather than against one another.
The client receives a cohesive package because the photos and video share a similar style and aesthetic.
The client only needs to work with one vendor, one invoice, one contract.
Because we want to work with our team who respects, pushes, appreciates, inspires, and encourages one another…we have the unique ability to help our clients save up to 15% on their package.

WHAT IS IT LIKE HIRING OUTLIVE TO SHOOT A DESTINATION WEDDING?
Similar to local weddings, all we need is a timeline with address' of where things will be held on the wedding day. We take care of everything else! Outlive is responsible for all the travel and accommodations. It's guaranteed that we will be there. We arrive 2-3 days in advance leaving a buffer time if flights get delayed, bags get lost, etc. We always shoot b-roll photos and video of the venue 2 days before the wedding so we can familiarize ourselves with the location and the light. We have everything we need to travel internationally.
WHAT IS OUTLIVE'S STYLE?
The short answer is: timeless, stylish, and relevant. Our style is journalistic with an obsessive focus to detail, light, composition, balance, and aesthetic. We utilize gorgeous - available - natural light to the best of our ability. The co-founders, Race and Jess are truly passionate about the outdoors so you will find them incorporating the environment into their work to place context to your story! We are very intentional about creating a product that will Outlive the test of time and be relevant 10-20 years from now which is why we don't fall into the trend trap. 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 videoography...please let us know!

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.

BENEFITS OF HAVING A PHOTO ALBUM
Having a tangible representation of your wedding day is a cherished heirloom that no price tag can suffice the value of.
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!
