Our Process & Pricing
If you're anything like us, you probably hate getting your photo taken. Most photo experiences can be incredibly awkward but we really wanna change that! When you work with us we want you to feel seen and your story told. We're all about documenting you as you are. This isn't about recreating what you saw on pinterest with epic mountainscapes (though we're always down for a hike with amazing scenery) it's about YOU being YOU and us capturing your true selves. We're what you would call "documentary / authentic / fun / natural" photographers (with a dose of creative portraiture thrown in for good measure!)
We're less about posing and more about directing & hanging out with you, We want to help create real moments and tell your story through those moments. Maybe your jam is slow dancing in the kitchen by candlelight or heading to the beach with your doggo! Maybe it's snuggling on the couch or hiking in the rain for hours. Whatever it is, we are here for it and we wanna capture it! Throw out the pre-conceived notions of what you think you should "do" or "look like" and show up with an open mind ready to collaborate. We know we'll make something pretty special & we can't wait!
These sessions are super laid back & fun! We're all about hanging out with you doing something you love or going to a place that is special for you, whether that's someplace in the wild, having coffee in your kitchen, or sitting on your front stoop. We tailor these shoots to each couple so if you want to document being in love, just got engaged, or are celebrating any kind of anniversary, hit us up & let's make some magic! You'll never regret having photos taken of you & your person...trust us, it's SO worth it!!
A wedding, just a bit more low key. Maybe it's just you, us, and a few VIPs, or a small scale, intimate celebration with your nearest & dearest. Anywhere from 2-6 hours of coverage with not a ton of people or fanfare. We'll climb a mountain with you, run on the beach with you, head to City Hall, or hang out in your backyard. Wherever & however you wanna tie the knot, we're up for it! Let us know what your general plan is & we'll give you more detailed pricing!
Weddings...what can we say? We just FREAKING LOVE THEM!!!! When you book us to photograph your wedding, you get comprehensive photo coverage of your WHOLE day from BOTH of us. We'll be hanging around capturing ALL the things and ALL the feels from getting ready until everyone starts getting real sweaty and drunk on the dance floor (we'll let you capture the rest of the incriminating evidence after that!). We're in your corner & your biggest advocates...we'll be there to help with anything you need, from pre-wedding freak outs, timeline organization, DJ recs, and boutonniere pinning -we're on it! We're a package deal, with us you're getting two lead photographers who work & collaborate well together, inspiring each other along the way and you end up with a really beautiful and complete story of your wedding day. If you wanna hang out with two nerds all day, let us know & we'll give you all the deets!
You deserve amazing photos of YOURSELF. If you're looking for some fresh head shots, photos for your small business, senior pics, or if you just want to do a photoshoot to commemorate what a badass you are, we would love to collaborate with you to create something awesome! Pricing for these sessions depends on the length of the session and number of locations. Give us a general idea of what you are going for and we will customize a session just for you!
There is nothing quite like family, just so much love & joy! The laughter, the chaos, and the little stuff we take for granted. ALL the goodness. We're not really about getting everyone to look and act just so, we're more about letting everyone be themselves and relax so we can capture some truly honest, real & magical moments. Whether you're looking for maternity photos, newborn pics or you wanna capture the fam for Christmas cards, we got you! We like to customize our family sessions for your unique situation, so reach out & let us create something awesome with you!
As long as you're kind and open, you're our people! We're not super traditional and you probably aren't either. You don't want to spend your wedding day posing for photos & honestly we'd rather document you having fun with your friends & fam anyway. You're probably okay with a little rain (the lighting is always magical!), getting your dress kinda muddy, and rolling around in the grass. Maybe you're loud, or quiet, total goofballs, or more introspective. You may be creatives, or makers, or doers, or shakers. You're anything and everything, but mostly you're lovers & wanderers and you want your photos to tell your true story, all the different parts, whatever they may be.
Courtney and Angela were an absolute dream to work with. Not only are their photos stunning, but they really value getting to know their clients to be sure their personalities are shining through in every photograph. We chose Brightly & Free for our wedding because of the perfect aesthetic they bring to the table. We had no idea we would be meeting two of our favorite people and choosing our photographers for every future photoshoot.
We loved working with Courtney and Angela SO MUCH. They were always so kind, quick to respond, understanding, and made us feel comfortable and confident. They were happy to hike around in the woods with us for hours to get some really incredible engagement photos, and were super chill when I changed our first look location at the last minute on the day of our wedding. The photos they took are INCREDIBLE - so much better than we ever could have expected. They really captured "us" the way we really are with each other, and we will cherish these photos forever. They were the best vendors we picked, hands down.
These two ladies are just so sincere, sweet, fun, and everything we were looking for in photographers. The photos tell a story and are really a dream come true. You will be so happy to have them at your wedding!! They are so professional, accommodating, best communication, and just overall fabulous quality work!!
Angela and Courtney are such an incredibly talented duo and an absolute DREAM to work with!! They are both so kind, thoughtful and completely flexible which made us all of us feel natural and at ease throughout our wedding day. They captured the day beautifully - we really couldn’t be more pleased with how our photos turned out – they’re absolutely perfect and so STUNNING!! We can’t wait to relive the memories we made that day,
through their photos, for years to come.
