2. How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?

We've been shooting since 2007 and have captured over 700 weddings.

3. How would you describe your photography style?

Natural, timeless, art, real life, fine art. As photo journalists we focus on real emotions and moments with a love for story telling in an artistic way.

4. How well in advance should couples book their wedding photographer?

We don't want anyone to feel pressured into booking a photographer just because you read on a blog one time you should book at least x many months in advance. Take your time, find someone who feels right for the both of y'all, and make sure you trust them 100%. We generally book wedding dates 10-14 months out.

5. What are the different packages that you offer and which one is your most popular package?

We have three collections that are a culmination of our most requested items for varying budgets, but frequently create custom collections for our couples. Our collections start at $4000 and the most popular collection has us rolling for 10 hours.

6. Are you the wedding photographer who will be shooting on the wedding day? Who else is there in your team?

We have a couple different crews of shooters and they've all been vetted to be sure they fit the Two Pair style perfectly. They are wonderful artists and creatives and we love them very much! If Tressie + Chad are booked on your big day already then you'll know from the first email we send who is available along with an "about us" of them. All so you can see their perdy face and weddings they've photographed. Our associates aren't a discounted version of Tressie + Chad. They're every bit as great and their work fits the Two Pair vibe in the most freaky of ways. Chad does all the photo editing for everyone so all the coloring looks the same, too.

7. Do you charge a travel fee? For what distance? What does that cover?

Yes! For weddings in Texas outside of our hood we charge $300-$400 travel for day of. Anything out of our home state our country we'll discuss travel pricing prior to booking.

8. Are albums or prints included in your packages?

Yes! We include killer albums in all of our collections. We just think it's important to have something tangible from your wedding day, especially in this digital world. It's also 10x's more romantic to hold a pretty book in your hands on your anniversary rather than tabbing through photos on your computer or phone.

9. How long after the wedding will the couple receive the images? How will they be delivered?

Turnaround time is up to 10 weeks. Our schedule is never consistent and week to week the amount of in office work we get totally varies. It rarely takes even 1/2 that long, but we like to give ourselves a bigger window because we don't want to feel pressure.

10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?

Once a couple books us we turn away all other weddings for that day and hold it only for them. Because of this, once they have retained our services, we are unable to work for anyone else on that day. In the event of a cancellation, if we're able to rebook their date, then we're happy to send a cancellation form.
