“amative”

adjective |  am·uh·tiv   |  "prone to love"

What's in a name? "Amative" means to be inclined, or prone, to love, especially romantic love. And if there's one thing we like more than anything, it's a good love story! The most important thing to us on your wedding day is to create meaningful, emotional, and powerful images that truly capture your love story and showcase the love you both share. We care for love so much, in fact, that our logo represents weddings rings… because we are, after all, prone to love.

Questions?

What is your style?
The Amative style is a rich combination of timeless beauty and modern romance. Our images are dramatic, elegant, and genuine.  We love being able to create artistic moments and capture spontaneous events. Photography is magical in that it can stop time, and we treasure the ability to be able to use it to make memories last forever. 

Are you licensed & insured?
Yes! Many wedding venues require vendors to have a current business license and general liability and equipment insurance. We’re more than happy to submit proof of both to your venue.  

When should I book you?
As soon as possible! Dates fill up quickly, and if you know you'd like to book us for your wedding date, be sure and contact us as soon as you can. We'll get together over coffee or the phone and chat about package options and if you're ready, can sign a contract the same day! 

What happens after we're booked?
Celebrate! You just checked another item off your wedding planning list!  Also, closer to your date we'll send you a questionnaire asking about your wedding day details, and it will help us get to know you and your future spouse a little better. We want to know if you're energetic or low key, like dark colors or bright tones. This will help us know a little about what makes you unique and be able to give you the best experience and product possible! 

Do you offer discounts?
Yes! Please inquire for details. There are frequently specials or discounts, and be sure and check our Facebook page for the most recent opportunities.

Do you allow payment plans?
Absolutely, we can work together on a plan that works best for you and your budget. Feel free to pay all at once, monthly, or in 2 or 3 payments. Whatever works best for you. We can agree on a plan that fits your needs when we sign the contract. 

How many photos do I get?
Some photographers charge per image, but we prefer to give you as many photos as possible that best reflect our style and most compliment you! For that reason, we don't limit the number of photos we provide, but deliver as many as possible in keeping with our quality standards. 

Does the client have the rights to print pictures?
Yes, each photo delivered becomes yours to print for personal use. The copyright remains with Amative Creative, but that doesn't affect you unless you want to use them for business purposes or try to sell them. 

Do you edit the photos?
Absolutely. We never deliver RAW or straight from the camera images.  

What do you shoot with?
We shoot with a variety of professional grade equipment from numerous brands including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Sigma, Tamron, Yongnuo, Manfrotto, Zoom, Neewer, and more. 

Will you take requested photos or shoot from a photo shot list?
We are more than happy to take requested photos by the client. While we may not be able to capture everything a client may write on a list or request, we will do our best to capture everything that the client desires.

Do you travel?
We absolutely LOVE to travel!! Destination weddings are one of our favorite things! Be sure and ask about special offers for destination weddings when you contact us

Do you have a list of preferred vendors that you work with?
We love working with fellow wedding vendors to create the perfect day for you! As we’ve been in the business of weddings for several years, we’ve gotten to know a few of the local vendors pretty well. We are more than happy to recommend some of them to you, but are also more than willing to work with new vendors on your wedding day!
