Benjamin Buren and his team have been making amazing images of wedding celebrations for over ten years. Over 400 unique and amazing celebrations have contributed to the development and refinement of our unique style. Some call it photo journalistic/classic; others have noted our ability to capture an amazing array of moods and situations in the most unique way. A pensive moment of anticipation while putting your wedding dress on, laughing children and happy friends, family dynamics at their best, the expression of love and commitment shared... All these moments make up your special day - Alive Studios can capture it on film.
Working with Alive Studios as your photographers will include two phases.
In the first phase Benjamin will spend approximately one hour showing you portfolio work, discussing your vision, and developing a unique approach to your wedding celebration. If you are working with one of the team members, that photographer will be present as well. When you choose to work with Alive Studios, Benjamin will become involved in the planning of all aspects of your wedding, focusing of course, on photography. In most situations, this includes an engagemnt shoot adventure.
On The Celebration Day, Benjamin, or your chosen photographer, and an assistant photographer show up about 1/2 hour before the agreed upon time to meet with wedding planners, scope out the environment and light, and begin preparing to capture the ensuing magic. We then shoot all the events and images that were agreed upon, using multiple professional Nikon Digital d200 cameras, natural light or flash, and a healthy dose of creativity and skill. A dramatic photojournalistic storybook (your proofs) will be built form the images we interpret and the magical events which transpire.
Next a professional lab is employed to develop a 10" x 13" bound proof book. Each page has 12 wallet sized images arranged artistically that tell the story of the day. This proof album is included in your wedding, and does not cost extra. Having proofs that you own is a critcal element of selection the right photographers. Make sure you don't have to pay for proofs.
This album is meticulously assembled in such a way that you will re-experience the ambiance and magic of your celebration day as you flip through it. Many couples actually use this proof book as their primary wedding album. Alive Studios will present this proof book to you less than two weeks after the celebration. It is yours to keep, no additional charge.
All the elements of phase one; capturing your wedding, the presentation of proofs, our personalities and professional attitudes, and our photography skill are all equally important. Alive Studios is committed to going beyond satisfying your expectations; we strive to delight you with the results.
After presenting the proof book, we then enter phase two - reprints, enlargements, and albums. There are a myriad of options to choose from. You are not obligated to buy "packages", or commit to a certain number of reprints, it's all up to you.
