What type of photography do you do? We are husband + wife wedding photographers, Jason + Heather Barr. We specialize in working together to tell the story of your wedding day. Our work is a mix of artistic fine art photography and photojournalism, telling the story of your day and capturing beauty through the lens with a mix digital and film photography. Based in North Carolina, specializing in destination weddings in Western North Carolina and beyond.
What is your photographic style? Our work is a mix of artistic fine art photography and photojournalism, telling the story of your day and capturing beauty through the lens with a mix digital and film photography. Many people often say that our photography has an editorial style. We love photographing the wedding day details and feel that it's super important to capture them so that we can paint the picture of your day as a whole.
Why do you shoot a mix of digital and film photography? While we do primarily shoot digital, there are cases where we feel that film photography really shines, and so we love to use film in those cases. When we shoot film, we have a few different cameras that we use - 35mm, medium format film cameras, and from to time we like to use some vintage film cameras. Right now, if one of us is shooting film, the other is shooting digital, especially for weddings. Film takes a couple of weeks to process, we send it off to the lab to process and scan, and then we'll get the film scans uploaded to your gallery and also include along with the digital images on your USB Collection.

What happens before my photoshoot/wedding day?
Before your session we'll either meet face to face, talk over the phone or chat via email so that we can figure out what you want. When you decide on a date/time for your session, we will invoice you for your 50% deposit to book the session. We'll meet you at the location of your choice, discuss ideas, what you're going to use the photos for, what to wear, how to style your session, tips, etc. For weddings, we love to meet with our couples face to face, have a coffee, get to know each other, talk about wedding day plans, ideas, collaborate on photo ideas for the big day, etc. A week or two before the big day we will put together a wedding day photography "timeline" and work with you to figure out a plan that works for you!
What happens during my photo session?
A typical session will last between 1-3 hours and portrait and family collections include from 20 up to 75 images, depending on the type of session. With weddings you will get approximately 80-100 edited images per hour of coverage on your USB Collection. The second 50% of your session/wedding fee is due on this day.
What happens after my photo session/wedding?
We usually need approximately 3-4 weeks to edit and prep your images for you, approximately 4-6 weeks for weddings during the busy seasons. A sneak peek of our faves will be featured and blogged within a couple days of the event. Once all of your images are ready, we will notify you via email that your proofs are ready for viewing in your very own private web gallery. We'll prep your USB Collection for you, and you (and your guests) will have the option to order professional prints, wall art, and storybook albums if you choose. Once your images/order is ready we can mail them to you or hand deliver them right to your door! We are always available to assist you if you have any questions! If you prefer not to order via our online shopping cart, we will be glad to take your order and send you an invoice if you prefer to mail a check. Just let us know what works best for you!
Do you provide the high resolution digital files to the couple? Yes. Every wedding package includes a USB containing the collection of the edited, high resolution wedding day images + print and web sharing release. We also offer professional printing services and album design as well, which will be available to you and your family + friends in your private wedding gallery!
Do you retain copyright for the photos? Yes. With the USB Collection, which is included with our wedding packages, our clients are free to print the photos up to any size at any photo lab of their choice. Clients will have the right to use the photos for personal purposes.
How do I pay?
We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express, as well as Paypal and Square. We do offer payment plans.
Do you travel?
Yes! We love to travel, and find that we typically do travel out of town for most of the weddings we do. We are available for travel worldwide. Travel fees may apply if you are located outside a 25 mile radius of 28678. For destination weddings, lodging and transportation (airfare or gas) to and from the event will be an additional fee.
