I love Working with Couples Who:
- Believe in creating a beautiful marriage (not just a beautiful wedding).
- You think family is everything.
- You are the best of friends.
- You lead with a grateful heart.
- You'll take the real, honest moments over ones staged to perfection.
- You will probably laugh just as much as you cry at your wedding.
- You love the little details, but are ok ditching tradition and trends.
- You are totally into sneaking out at sunset for time alone together.
- You aren't afraid to hit the dance floor (most likely barefoot)!
- You love to show each other affection or simply hold hands.
- You love looking at old photographs.
- You are chasing your dreams together.
. . . and if you made it through all of these, you are TOTALLY the type of couple I'd love to work with!
What to Expect - Beginning to End
Saying yes to new adventures
01. Get In Touch
Inquire about my availability, then we'll plan to meet up for coffee to get to know each other!
"We'll plan to meet up for coffee to get to know each other!"
I'll walk you through my approach to wedding photography in depth, share my advice on creating a smooth timeline for the day, and share my fine-art leather albums included in the Wedding Collection!
Moving forward, to secure your date I require a 50% non-refundable retainer and signed contract and I will officially be your wedding photographer. Then the fun really begins!
02. Engagement Session
In my business everything is personal - I'm there at the most emotional times on your wedding day from getting ready to the tears as you walk down the aisle to the father/daughter dance!
"I believe an engagement session is a VITAL part to capturing genuine images on your wedding day!"
The only other people there with you at these times of the day are your family and close friends and I feel so honored to be invited in as an honorary family member for the day! This is why I believe scheduling an engagement session is a VITAL part to capturing genuine, romantic images on your wedding day! It's a time for us to hang out in advance to the wedding and get to know each other even better!
This is where I truly see how you interact as a couple and it is also an opportunity for you to get comfortable in front of the camera and for me to teach you how I pose, shoot, and utilize natural light! It is, in a sense, a test-run before the big day.
03. Before the Wedding
My top priority is to ensure each of my couples are well taken care of, and that you have an amazing photography experience!
"My top priority is to ensure each couple is well taken care of!"
Before the engagement session and wedding we will sit down and discuss all the important details. I am there to offer advice to my couples throughout the planning process from outfit & location selection at the engagement to advice for the wedding including creating a custom wedding photography timeline, tips for stress-free family portraits, and creating romantic sunset portraits of you two on the wedding day!
I believe preparation is the key to your successful photography experience and key to a less stressful wedding day! By getting all the details worked out in advance, it will result in authentic, candid moments of you on the wedding day!
04. After the Wedding
After you have jetted off on your honeymoon with your new husband, I will get to work custom editing all of your final wedding images!
"I am so excited to share your images with you!"
I am so excited to share your images with you, and within one week after your wedding (and engagement) I will share a sneak peek of what is to come in your final gallery on social media.
Within three weeks I will have made it halfway through your images and will feature an extended sneak peek on my blog of your wedding day! Within 90 days post-wedding you will have access to your personalized online image gallery! Your images will be safe there for up to 1 year before which you will need to download all of the high-resolution final images onto a personal flash drive for safe keeping.
At this time I will also design your custom fine-art album which will be ready to review online and includes two complimentary rounds of revision! I love the art of the tangible and I know when you hold onto your album and your wedding images on your 1st or 50th wedding anniversary it will be priceless!
