YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE

what to expect and when

First of all, congratulations on your engagement! I know that wedding planning can get pretty overwhelming when you are first starting out. There are lots of details swimming around in your head, but I am here to take care of one of the biggest ones: your photography. My goal as your photographer is to make your day as simple and painless as possible.

On your wedding day I am your photographer but, I'm also your right hand woman. I can really lace up a corset, I will absolutely bring you water when all you've had is champagne, I will be awed by you in your dress, and so much more. On top of all that, I will be capturing your stunning day in all its glory. This day is about the love you and your fiancé share and I am dedicated to showing that in your photos.

Here is a step-by-step process on booking, shooting, and receiving your wedding photos. 

booking your photography

  • Want to book me? After hearing more about your big day, I will give you a custom package for your photography. Fill out my contact form and we can chat via email, phone, or in person.

  • All packages come with a second photographer. This helps capture your groom getting ready, guests during cocktail hour, detail shots, candid photos, and alternate perspectives.

  • Once you book with me, a contract and invoice will be sent to you. A 1/3 deposit will be required to hold your date, with the second 1/3 due three months before your wedding, and the last 1/3 due one week before the wedding. 

shooting your engagement session

  • It's never too early or late to book your engagement session! Contact me to get the process started.

  • I will email you a questionnaire a few weeks before your engagement session to get to know you a little better. This questionnaire will also help us plan your engagement session.

  • Decide feel, location, and outfits for engagement session. Be yourself!

  • Plan on being early to the session. We are on a time crunch with the sun and if we start late, we can't make up that time.

  • We will shoot for one hour at whatever location you choose. Additional time and locations can be purchased.

  • You will receive your personalized hand-edited photos within 4 weeks of your session. They will be delivered in an online gallery that you can share with family and friends. All your photos can be downloaded right to your computer and you can also order prints directly from your gallery.

preparing your wedding photography

  • One month before your wedding day, you will fill out a questionnaire so I can get a better idea of all the important people/places/things on your wedding day. The questionnaire will also help prepare you and I with the flow of your wedding day timeline, family portrait photos and requested photos.

  • Your wedding is yours alone, there is nothing like it. We will discuss all options, ideas, and questions you have leading up to your wedding day.

shooting your wedding photography

  • The big day has arrived! This day is all about you and your partner. Let's have fun and enjoy this amazing day, it goes quick so soak it all up! Myself and my second shooter will be there capturing moments, memories, and emotions.

  • Have all your details set out for me so when I get there, I can hand them off to my second shooter and we can get photographing right away.

  • Put someone in charge of your wedding photography, preferably someone who isn't in the bridal party but knows who everyone is. This person will help me out a lot during getting ready photos and family portraits.

receiving your wedding photography

  • I know, waiting for your wedding photos can feel like an eternity. I will post a sneak peek from your big day within 1 week on Facebook and Instagram.

  • You will receive your personalized hand-edited photos within 8 weeks of your wedding. They will be delivered on an USB drive and in an online gallery that you can share with your family and friends. You can also order prints directly from your gallery through my professional lab. 

  • Handcrafted wedding albums are available for an additional cost. These gorgeous wedding albums are put together by me and are looked over and proofed by you. Your album will display all your favorite photos from your wedding day and make for a perfect gift or coffee table book.
