Denée and Carl are excited about blending their families and cultures with their sentimental and fun side for their wedding. Let's eliminate the feeling of *sides* at a wedding and bring everyone together. An outdoor ceremony, everyone from the kids to the grandparents being together, toasts under twinkle lights, cocktails over sunset, and an epic dance party with a great band.
Although they are both performers, they don't want the feeling of performing their own wedding. Living the real, genuine moments and having those captured, especially since they can only be in one place at a time, is the most important to them. Even with a larger guest list of 250 people, they still want things to feel intimate and special.
• AN ALBUM
An online gallery is a great thing to have, but nothing beats being able to pull out a beautifully crafted album and share it with friends, family, children, and eventually your children’s children. Photos are meant to be printed out. Handled. Touched. Passed around.
We design every album in-house and work with you to select your favorite photos to tell the story of the day as naturally as it unfolded. And you'll have something to put on the coffee table you got as a wedding gift!
• A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER
In short, a second photographer allows us to be in two places at once. First Look not your thing? No problem. We'll be able to do your photos after the ceremony while the second photographer will be floating around cocktail hour grabbing all those good candids of your guests. Getting ready in separate locations and want both of your crews captured? We'll tag team so you have photos of both of you pre-ceremony.
• PRINT RELEASE RIGHTS
Print release rights are included in every package. All photos are delivered via digital download from an online proofing gallery where you can view the photos, download prints, and share with family + friends. The print release entitles you to the photos to print, share, and treasure forever. No watermarks on any of the images.
• WELCOME DINNER + ACTIVITIES
Coverage of your rehearsal dinner or welcome party isn't just about extra photos. Because these pre-wedding activities are usually your closest friends and family, it's often when we capture the best moments and candids because of the more intimate setting. We also recommend allotting 15-20 minutes during the celebrations for a mini photo shoot of the two of you. Not only is it a good warmup before the wedding, but capturing you two at all the different stages (and emotions!) of the weekend is extra special to have when it is all said and done.
Wanting to keep their wedding lowkey and personal, Boram and Alex got ready at The Williamsburg Hotel with their siblings before doing a First Look + photos in Williamsburg. Of course, we need to shoot in the epic bathtub + blue tiles in their suite. Afterwards, we traveled to the Boathouse for couples photos in Prospect Park before their ceremony. Boram and Alex were able to mingle for 20 minutes at cocktail hour after we did their family photos post-ceremony. The only event at their intimate, family-style dinner was a thank you speech from the couple. After the cake was cut, the dance party kicked off with first dances and ended with a sparkler exit on the lake.

To balance their desire to have an intimate wedding with their parents’ guest list, Sam and Adam chose Hayfield so they could get married outside in a beautiful ceremony and have a party in a tent under the stars. After getting ready nearby, we did their First Look + wedding party photos before the ceremony. A 1.5-hour cocktail hour on the lawn allowed us to sneak away for some sunset photos, do family photos, and for the couple to mingle at cocktail hour with guests. An epic dance party with an 8-piece band followed, where guests dined family-style and listened to some of the best toasts we’ve ever heard.

While planning their big wedding of 150 people, Aubrey and David realized that what they truly wanted was to get married in their favorite place in the world — Italy. They cancelled their wedding in New Jersey and eloped with 20 of their closest family and friends. Spending a week before the wedding at a villa, Aubrey (a talented NYC florist) made all of the flowers and the family toured the region. We scouted a spot for the ceremony locale on the day of, keeping things casual and lowkey. A traditional Italian dinner was served al fresco under market lights and then a homemade Spotify playlist kicked off the dance party.

Looking through these last night, I was like, "I don't even remember her being there for that!" which is a total testament to your ability to capture the best moments of a wedding without intruding or making people feel like they're being watched. Our friends keep complimenting us on how "cool" our weddings photos are. Thank you for being awesome. It feels like we started with a photographer and ended with a friend.

What an absolute joy it was to work with you guys. I am laughing and crying at the beautiful preview you sent. I will recommend you guys until my mouth is dry. What a team. What a night. You two rule so much.

Don't get me wrong, everything they document is colorful, beautiful, magical, but it's also precise. It tells a story. Their photos are like living, breathing things. On top of that, the Wilde Scout team is a joy to be around. They're energetic, fun, highly professional, and calming. When hiring vendors you want to choose someone who is on your team, who feels like a super prepared BFF. They are this.

On our wedding day, Katherine has such a positive and calming energy. There isn't anyone else, well besides your future spouse, who you spend so much time with on your wedding day. Katherine was able to capture phenomenal moments of the day. She has this instinctive eye for capturing naturally occurring moments. Me being excited about food (!), us nailing our first dance, holding hands, and stealing small kisses here or there. They aren't your typical generic wedding photos. They capture the mood and feeling of the day.
- Saraleah + Danny
It was important that we hire multi cultural vendors, someone that photographed people of color, and importantly worked with same sex couples. If you’re looking for a photographer who’s cool, down to earth and more like your cousin, hire Katherine. You will NOT regret it. Not for nothing but we fired our photographer to hire Katherine. That is how much we wanted her on our team.
