WHAT IS OUR STYLE?
Since we have a feeling that you have been looking around our work, we figured that you noticed that light is basically our best friend and by light we mean, the sun! Even though we know some photographers + filmmakers opt for some artificial lighting, that's just not how we roll and that's totally okay, we can still make some pretty cool stuff happen (unless the moment calls for it like receptions that are pitch black then we do bust out the flash). Other than that, we go for the "in the moment" kind of stuff or in other words we are ALL about candidness. We will pose you for some shots but for the most part, we let you be you.
We know we are not for everybody and we ask that you pop some corn and sit down to read everything/watch tons of our films/spend hours going through our pictures before you decide we are it for you. We have worked blood-sweat-tears hard towards developing our style (made up of specific colors + composition + creativity) and we love to work with couples who are 100% excited for all we can offer. It's always good to let us know where you stand because we can either help you all the way through or guide you to choosing a company that will completely leave you in awe with the work you'll receive (but obviously hopefully we are it though)!
SO YOU THINK YOUR BIG DAY + US = A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN. WHAT NOW?
The booking process begins with our most FAVORITE part of it all - meeting you two! We say this is the best part of it all because it's the moment when we get to hear the most beautiful details of your intimate story (we always get some insider stories that no one has heard before so that's a perk too). Once we have had our coffee/tea/ice cream/burgers together, what we'll do is go ahead and send you the contract to make this so much more real for you guys. Once we receive the signed contract along with your deposit, we can shout hoorah and permanently mark your date on our calendar and from here, there's no looking back!

WE GET HOW MANY PICTURES AND OUR HIGHLIGHT FILM IS HOW LONG?!
So we work this way: For 8 hour weddings you’ll get a minimum of 300 pictures and/or a film of 3 minutes and for 10 hour weddings you’ll get a minimum of 500 pictures and/or a film of 5 minutes. It all depends on your day and how much you have planned for us to work with.
YOU'RE NOT IN MIAMI BUT STILL WANT US TO COME PARTY WITH YOU AND GET IN ON ALL THE GOOD STUFF? WE'LL COME TO YOU!
Even though Miami, FL is the place we call home, it absolutely thrills us to venture to new places with our couples. As of now, we are only offering the individual services of photo or film for all of our destination weddings. The reason we have decided on this is only because: 1. It's much harder to travel with four people than two, 2. It can start to get a little pricy on your end since we all need transportation + a bed + food + incidentals (you never know what can happen), 3. We have a heck of a lot of equipment so moving that around is sometimes not the best option (even though for you guys, we'll do 99.9% anything and everything). All travel expenses are not included in our collections; therefore, we will provide an estimate of all travel expenses depending on which side of the world you want us to meet you at!
YOU WANT US, BUT ONLY FOR A FEW HOURS...
Would you skip the first 30 pages of a novel you just picked up for the first time? Exactly! Neither would we! So basically this is why all of our wedding collections include full day coverage and sadly no per hour coverage option, because the only way to tell a good story to the best of our abilities is by not missing any moment at all.
SO FIRST LOOK...OR NO FIRST LOOK? (OR IN SOME CASES, WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK?)
In our personal opinion, we say a thousand times yes to first looks. A first look is when a groom and a bride see each other before the ceremony to exchange some glances, words, and tears. We think it is one of the most incredible moments of a wedding and if every couple that came our way thought the same, we would certainly have our hearts desires fulfilled BUT we are aware that they are not everyone's cup of tea (and being honest, some altar first looks are pretty friggin' amazing too). Do we recommend them? Yes! The only reason we do is because right after your first look, we can shoot your portraits and what better than a moment when all of the world's emotions are fluttering around in your stomachs. If you are leaning towards a no, still give it some thought because remember this is ALL ABOUT YOU so pictures and film footage of you two are the most important shots of the day.
WHAT SOLD YOU IS THAT WE SHOOT PHOTO + FILM TOGETHER, BUT HOW ON EARTH DO WE DO THIS?
On a typical wedding day when we are shooting only film, Dani becomes Pablo's second filmmaker. When we shoot photo and film together, we bring along an extra filmmaker to lend us a helping hand that way Dani can tackle all of the photography.
IS YOUR MUSIC LICENSED?
Heck yes. We want you to be able to share your film wherever your heart desires so we definitely purchase all of our songs to avoid any restrictions along the way.
YOU LOVE THE DIGITAL STUFF BUT NOW YOU WANT TO SHOWCASE THE WORK ALL OVER YOUR HOME. DO WE DO ALBUMS AND PRINTS?
We do not do albums or prints, but Artifact Uprising are killing the album and print game right now!
You made it to the end! Props to you for reading all of this because we know it was quite some info to take in but hopefully a bunch of your questions got some answers!
Now onto the real reason you made it all the way down here...
