A Warm Hello from Us
Your Personalized Wedding Journey with Frank, Anastasia and the team
Greetings cherished future newlyweds,
We’re Frank and Anastasia, the heart and soul behind Another Dream, and your personal guides on the beautiful path to capturing your wedding story.
We’ve dedicated our lives to celebrating love by crafting enduring memories, and we’re excited to walk you through the journey you’d embark on with us.
Step By Step:
First Contact: Share your proposed date and we'll check our calendars. If we're available, that’s where our shared story begins.
Getting Acquainted: We’ll arrange a cozy video consultation to understand the essence of your love story and your wedding day dreams. Every couple and every wedding is unique so we're willing to invest time to get to know you
Crafting Your Package: We, personally, will tailor-make a package that feels like it was made just for you, because, well, it is.
Trust and Transparency: You'll receive a detailed contract that clearly states our commitment and the journey we’re about to take together.
Securing the Moment: 25% deposit ensures that we’re all set for your day with peace of mind. And also we have payment plans available.
Pre-Wedding Prep: Great photography is about preparation. We’ll plan out the schedule, exchange ideas, and ensure we know every group shot and special moment you want captured.
Finalizing Details: As your day approaches, we’ll finalize everything, leaving no detail to chance.
On the Day: Arriving early is our mantra, giving us time to blend into the environment, set up, and be ready to document every moment as it unfolds.
Capturing the Magic: Your wedding day will be a flurry of beautiful moments, and we’ll be there to catch them all, candid and choreographed.
Sneak Peek Excitement: The joy doesn’t end with the last dance. Expect a sneak peek of your photos to keep the excitement alive as we meticulously craft your full gallery.
The Big Reveal: We aim for a turnaround of 3-6 weeks for your complete gallery, each photo and video filled with the day’s love and laughter.
Post-Wedding Wishes: Should you desire any special edits or have additional requests, we’re here for you. Your joy is our command.
The Ultimate Compliment: Our dream is to not just meet but exceed your expectations, so much so that you can’t help but share your experience with friends.
Introducing the Dream Team
In the Another Dream family, it's not just us — we're supported by a team of equally passionate professionals.
Our photographers Anthony, Olivia, Alex, and videographers Alex, Ivan, and George share our commitment to capturing your day perfectly.
We all work in harmony, having been trained in-house to ensure a consistent style and quality across all our work. This means no matter who is behind the lens, the result will be the dreamy Another Dream standard you see on our website.
Our Hybrid Approach
Working in California for the last 8 years, we've observed the landscape of wedding photography and videography and noticed two extremes:
- Large corporations that lack a personal touch, providing deals that seem too good to be true, and then couples get to get know their photographer on the actual day of the wedding. Basically, it's like playing a gamble with one of the most important days of your life.
- Solo photographers who can't give each client the attention they deserve. They are jacks of all trades, who are doing everything at once and never have enough time for you. And when you book separate photographer and videographer who work work together for the first time on your wedding day, it's not a prefect coordination, believe me.
That's why we've developed a hybrid model:
We only work with in-house professionals who've been thoroughly trained by us. This ensures we all shoot in the same style, use the same equipment, and follow the same workflow, guaranteeing consistency across all our services.
You have two paths to choose from with us:
Frank’s Guided Journey: I'll guide you through the preproduction process, offering advice on the schedule, sharing ideas, and helping with all the preparations. This way you're getting feedback as fast as possible. Then, we'll assign a team member two months before the wedding day, so you have ample time to get acquainted, go over details, and ensure there's a personal connection, eliminating any awkwardness on the big day. This way we can provide the best value of the package, maintaining our perfect customer service and quality.
Direct Photographer Connection: Alternatively, we assign a photographer right from the start. This way, the person capturing your memories is involved in the planning from day one, ensuring a seamless experience tailored to your vision. Since some weddings days are getting booked far in advance we have this option for packages starting from 8 hours.
From your first inquiry to the final delivery of your photos and videos, we are dedicated to creating a comfortable, engaging, and comprehensive experience. It’s not just about taking pictures; it’s about documenting the start of a lifetime together in the most beautiful way possible.
We can’t wait to embark on this journey with you.
Frank and Anastasia
