THE DREAM TEAM

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

With a fresh perspective on traditional portraiture, our lifestyle approach aims to create honest and authentic images that tell your Real Love Story. Stiff and over-posed images are a thing of the past; we strive to capture your genuine personalities - the raw emotions, belly laughs, sweet kisses, beautiful chaos, and everything in-between.

While the majority of our shoots happen on-location elsewhere island wide, our dedicated studio space is ideal for capturing newborns and cake smash sessions.

Frequently asked questions

What is the best time of day for my Portrait Session?
Primarily natural light portrait photographers, we love scheduling during the early 'delicious light' and evening ‘golden hour’, however sessions are scheduled at various times throughout the day based on your preferences and our availability. With young kids, we recommend morning sessions or working around nap schedules. In our opinion, the best time for happy kiddos will always trump the best time for perfect light.

When should I schedule my Maternity Session?
Congratulations, what an exciting time! Maternity Sessions are typically scheduled between 32 - 35 weeks. At this stage in your pregnancy, you've likely popped a cute bump and are still feeling pretty good. This said, we've captured maternity sessions anywhere from first trimester early stages right to up to the actual due date! For our Progression Pregnancy Series, we begin documenting at 16 weeks - capturing your growing bump month-to-month.

When should I schedule my Newborn or Fresh 48 Session?
Newborn and Fresh 48 Sessions are booked by scheduling in your due date, with the expectation that baby could arrive on either side of it. Once baby is here you will touch base and we'll confirm a session date on our calendar, if you’ve booked a traditional Newborn this can be once you’re home from hospital sessions typically are captured within the first 10-14 days (this can vary depending on post-birth circumstances or cultural beliefs). Sessions are typically scheduled around 11am at our studio. For a Fresh 48, you’d shoot us a message once baby is here so that we can come by the hospital within the first 48 hours of birth to capture the first intimate bonding moments between you and your new baby. These are scheduled around KEMH visiting hours. If baby is preterm, your doctor will likely advise you when it is OK to schedule.

Tell me about ALLURE!
Our boudoir portrait series, Allure by Two & Quarter is designed to celebrate women by creating stunning imagery that encapsulates your most beautiful self.

What if I need to reschedule my session?
Life happens, we get it, so we offer a one time penalty free reschedule for portrait sessions. Whenever possible, we kindly ask that 24 hours notice be provided should the need to reschedule arise by contacting us via email or on our emergency line.

How soon after the event are images ready?
A s per our Terms & Conditions the absolute maximum turnaround time for your complete set of images is two months - though, depending on the season, is typically much faster! Rush Processing of 5-business days is available upon request and for an additional fee.

 Does Two & Quarter retain copyright for the photos?
Yes, we retain the copyright to all images and reserve the right to use them for advertising/marketing/promotions. However, the client receives unlimited personal usage of the images. We'd be thrilled if you want to submit your wedding to a blog or magazine, we just kindly ask that you give us a heads up so we can provide the organization with proper image credit.

What if I don't want my images shared online?
If you’ve gotten this far, chances are you’ve seen our images around the interwebs. Online marketing through our website, blog, and social media is essential to the continued growth of creative businesses. However, if you would like for your images not to be used in this capacity, there is an additional fee of 20% of your quote total to allocate toward alternative marketing.

How many Full Day Weddings do you book?
As of 2018, we are accepting a limited quantity of Full Day Wedding commissions to ensure optimal attention to each couple as well to increase our Saturdays available for family and other lifestyle portraits. For all FDW inquiries, we meet with each prospective couple - either in person at our studio or over the phone - to chat about your what you envision for you day and whether what we offer is a good fit for your individual wedding photography needs.

Do you offer packages?
For Weddings we offer two tiers of coverage, Full Day Wedding Coverage & Intimate Wedding Coverage. With both, custom packages can be created to suit the needs of each couple from our extensive list of A La Carte options. We also offer package options for Portrait Sessions, focused on combining the milestone moments of a growing family. 

I'm interested in an Engagement Session, are these available with wedding packages?
We're SO glad you asked! We love Engagement Sessions. They are the ideal way for you to get a feel of how we work behind the lens, and for us to see how you interact as a couple in front of it. Because of this, an Engagement Session is included in all Full Day Wedding Coverage packages as our booking gift to you! 

Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes! Unforeseen emergencies aside and unless we have made alternate arrangements prior to your event or you have hired an associate, then either Mark or Ally (or both) will be your photographer.

Do you have a replacement photographer should you become unavailable on the day of an event?
The benefit of a two photographer team is that should one of us become suddenly unavailable, there's still one (wo)man standing! If in the unforeseen event that neither of us are available for an event that cannot be rescheduled, then we would do our utmost to find a replacement photographer from our island-wide network of professionals.

What is your policy on taking breaks and do you require a meal?
Keeping vendors fueled and fed is crucial to a successful shooting day for any wedding or large event! While e always keep a selection of snacks and water handy to keep us going, your contract will include one hot meal per photographer and/or assistant for weddings or events of 4+ hours. Think of it this way, if you're hungry then chances are we are too! We will plan with you and/or your co-ordinator the best time for a meal break so that we're ready to capture the action as it happens.

Do you have experience shooting in various lighting conditions?
Definitely! Our comprehensive training and years of experience allows us to work in various lighting situations and weather conditions (seriously, we shot a wedding during a hurricane). Our kit always includes the necessary equipment for any lighting scenario.

Do you offer Corporate or Editorial photography?
Yes! While our portfolio is not heavily marketed we are pleased to offer corporate services for companies both small and large; local and international. We've created imagery for everything from full branding concepts, corporate head shots and environmental portraiture, roundtable discussions, event coverage, and magazine features.
