The art of memory capture is looking back on your love. And we do mean you; not hammering you into hipster, not veering toward vogue if that's not you. The heart, soul, and skill of this art is to see and bring out the best in your day, not eclipse and miss it.
We see some artists in this for the identity of being an artist. That's nice, but maybe backwards. This art isn't about the artist. Memory artists don't lose meaningful memories for "my style" and a "following".
Yes, we do both. And yes, we can do just photo or film. But the more time passes, the more people find both photo and film are essential for memory capture. Through us or another, you need both.
Like you and your love, photography and videography are two halves of a whole. Film is not a frame cherished on the wall. Photo has no sound of laughter nor happy tears at the toasts, that's film moving with the moments that matter most. You need photos to remind and film to relive.
Years of experience enables our artists to stay focused foremost on bringing out the best in you. Not juggling complex tools – that's muscle memory. Not bogged down comparing light to composition to color, that's all become automatic.
Studio means an in-house full time retoucher. Full Day coverage yields three hundred edits, all worked on one by one – targeted for 8x10 printing. We want you focused on beautiful memories, not the blemishes and flyaway hairs.
We got into giclée printing after too often seeing the gap between our edits and the prints from big box shops. Art snobbery aside – yes – you can still print your wedding at Costco, as long as we never have to see it.
Our film makes our photo better. From setting up the group shots to coordinating an exit, our videographers train to actually help the photographers, not hinder. No jockeying for lead or control – professional means team players.
Enter the whirlwind, the whole day in a beautiful retelling. No, not endless slo-mo same shots cookie cutter – we've seen too much of that to! Instead, our Highlights do indeed highlight your day; upbeat happy, lovely romantic, or sometimes even quirky.
Every memory we captured alive and moving with you. Do the math, Highlights can include only a few seconds of cake cutting or first dance. Fast forward a decade and we think you'll agree: if capture is about memories, Full Footage is a must.
Studio means we can hold a quality bar in a way few solo artists can. We can afford top shelf tools while keeping pricing fair for you. We can each specialize our talent and technique from shooting to editing, all in house. With a studio, you have a whole team to support you start to finish.
Wonderful! There are so many talented colleagues we admire and respect. We shoot as often with others as we do with our own team. As for how this affects you, in our Studio every artist trains together both photo and video. We all have a broad grasp on both sides of the art, and therefore a better grasp on how to collaborate with anyone. Here are a few of our favorites!Preferred Vendors
"These guys did an amazing job with our wedding photos. The photographer meant to take our photos was in a car accident the day before – she's ok – and they sent someone else from the studio. Their ability to adapt to whatever is one of the best I've seen out of photographers. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family. We also will be using them in the future if we can!"
"Best in the business.. Lighting is perfect, music is perfect, angles and moments all captured. If you are looking for a videographer this is the place I would recommend to everyone. We are more than thrilled with their work. Go to their Vimeo page, you can see the quality these guys put in their videos that sets them above everyone else. We were lucky we found them. Thanks again for everything."
"My wife and I both work in the photo video world, and we were impressed with the quality, and scale of their equipment. We felt comfortable from the start that they would capture our special day in a way that we could cherish forever. Not only was Tanner and Amanda amazing to work with, but their team.. Aaron, Dalton, and Taylor all did amazing when it came to our photos and videos."
"Hands down I would give them six stars if I could. Really though, the quality of their pictures and videos is amazing. They are such great people-persons, they take all the stress away and just allow you to enjoy the shoot. Super professional and timely in the delivery of the end result. Warning though, you might just walk away with two great new friends."
"Scarlet Oak Studio has both the kind friendliness of your college-photographer friend, but the quality of a large-scale professional studio. They were by far the best prices for the best quality photos. Months after our wedding they still are following up, seeing how we are doing and asking us, personally over-the-phone, how we liked our photos."
"Everyone told me this is the one thing you don't want to skimp on when it comes to your wedding. Glad I listened. Not only was Scarlet Oak reasonably priced for their high quality, but attention to detail, and ability to capture our wedding in the most beautiful way... When I posted online all my friends were asking who did our video as it was the best they have ever seen – couldn't agree more!!"
"I’m a person who normally doesn’t like being photographed, but they put me at ease and made me feel totally comfortable.. We hired them to do all of our engagements, formals, and wedding photos + video. It never felt like a fake photo shoot—it always felt like I was on a date with my wife! They understood what we wanted and made it a reality."
