A whole lot goes into planning a wedding! I want to make this as fun and easy for you as possible – let me walk you through my process so you’ll have a better idea of what to expect. Throughout the planning and wedding day, I’m your teammate, advocate, and friend.
You’re engaged! Now what?
Let’s be friends! It’s important to chose a photographer not just for the photos, but for the energy and the vibe they bring as well. Really, I’m gonna be following you around all day – we better like each other. Read more about me, and if it resonates, get in touch! I’ll get back to you within 24 hours, and we can set up a time to meet up over coffee or a cocktail, or set up a phone or FaceTime call if we’re not able to meet in person. During our meeting, we’ll talk schedule, your wedding plans in detail, and come up with the ideal package for your wedding day. It’ll also give us a chance to connect and I’ll get an opportunity to see how the two of you naturally are together and know more about your unique love story.
What’s that? you wanna hire me?!
Alright, let’s do this thing! Just a $1500 deposit to book, with the remainder due 4 weeks before the wedding! Sign your contract, pay your deposit, and do a little happy dance, your date is locked in! Everything is done online, and you can pay with your credit card or directly from your bank account. During your planning process, I’m always available for questions or suggestions – just shoot me an email or a text. I mean it!
The Engagement shoot
Portraits, Love Session, Test Shoot – call it whatever you want – I love engagement sessions! They’re the best way for you to get used to being in front of the camera, kissin’ and cuddlin’ and lovin’ on each other. It gives us the chance to understand how we best work together, making the wedding day go that much more smoothly. Bonus to all that is that you get more sweet photos of the two of you! I love to include elements of your life together in the shoot – your new puppy, you fave coffee shop, or just the stoop of the building where you’ve created a home together. Life moves so quickly and it’s a wonderful thing to have artifacts of this fleeting moment in your life together.
Party time, Excellent
We’ve worked out the final details and timing of the day and now it’s time for you to celebrate and revel in the best party of your life! During the wedding day, I am your teammate, advocate, and friend. I’ll make sure the family photos are done efficiently and happily. I’ve got my eye on the clock to make sure we’re where we’re supposed to be, on time. If you need a minute for just the two of you, don’t worry, I can sense that and will facilitate that. When I’m needed to direct and organize, I’m on top of it. When it’s time for me to fade into the background and shoot candidly, you won’t even know I’m there. The result is a harmonious, organic photo experience where your photos truly tell the story of your wedding day and everyone involved in it.
In about 4 weeks you’ll receive your private online gallery, filled with all the details, emotions, love and forgotten moments of your wedding day. From here, you can order prints, download your image files, and share the images with family and friends. Making your memories into tangible heirlooms is so important, so all packages include an album credit as well.
