Now what?! Let's get planning your wedding day vision! I strive to be as involved as my clients like me to me. Having trouble finding other vendors? I can refer you! Need help planning your schedule for the day? I'm here to walk you through it! We're in this together. I am basically another bridesmaid so anything that you need on your wedding day (or before) just let me know! I am always happy to help!
I get so many emails from Brides that come to me, really having no idea what to expect from a wedding photographer at all! So let me break it down!
I offer Engagement sessions in all of my Wedding Collections!
Why you ask? because an engagement session is a great opportunity to get to know one another. Your wedding photographer will be the vendor you spend the most time with on your wedding day. Shouldn't you feel like a this person is a trusted friend? You will also get to know my photographic style, and so you know what I'm talking about when I ask you to "turtle". I will teach you how to pose, and also ask you to do some silly things, that will look great on camera (trust me!). I want you to feel comfortable in front of my lens so when your wedding day comes around you will be completely at ease in front of the camera.
The basic engagement session is included in every wedding package, with upgrades available. The session is 45 minutes in length, it is at one location and allows time for 1-2 outfit changes. Before we schedule your session, we will talk about what you will potentially be using these photos for, and find a way to show your personality and love story in the photos as well. When it comes to picking outfits, I have created a cute little guide to help you prepare!You can find that here:Engagement Shoot Prep Guide
F. A. Q.
How Do I book you for our Wedding?
When you are ready to reach out about my wedding services, I'll be here! You can get in touch with me through the "contact" page or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you let me know you're interested, I'll send you a questionnaire to fill out about yourself and your big day. From there we can set up an in-person consultation to see if we're a great fit for each other. You should definitely feel connected to your wedding photographer and I love building a rapport with my clients. If we both feel it was meant to be after our consultation, then I will send over a contract and a 30% retainer will be due at the time of signing.
Do you photograph same-sex couples? YES! always yes! Love is Love! !
Do You Travel? OHHH Yeah! I have a Travel bug. I am always looking to hop on a plane! if you are planning a destination wedding, or would like to book me internationally, just let me know so I can fill you in on my sweet travel deals! To be honest, traveling to exotic destinations just isn't as much fun unless I have wonderful people to take incredible photos of.
Do you deliver all the photos you take? When will I see them? I deliver all the photos that are worth delivering. TRUST ME, I would never withhold any photos that could hold sentimental value! I only discard the duplicate shots, blurry, and awkward faces. Depending on the time of year, I try my best to send you a sneak peek of a few of your wedding photos within 2 weeks of your wedding date. When I am finished editing the rest, you will get an email from me with a link to your online gallery, hosting all the edited photos from your wedding day.
How much will it cost? Wedding packages start at $2800. If your heart is set on my work, lets chat! I offer payment plans and customize to suit your needs!
Tips For Planning
What Details to Bring-I love taking photos of details! You spend so many months picking out your invitations, finding the perfect dress/suit etc. Let me photograph every little thing because it’s a Big deal! I will send you a list of items to have ready for me to photograph closer to the wedding day!
Dinner- Being photographed while eating is never flattering, so I usually try my best to eat in between speeches when the newly weds are eating. If I am the last to eat, I will be standing around awkwardly for a while and then rushing to make sure I don't miss any after dinner events. Please make sure that both me, and my second shooter have a place to sit in the hall where the bride and groom are, and aren't fed last so that we can get back to work as soon as possible!
Night Shots- For me, ending the night with a photo of a bouquet toss just doesn't seem right. So usually about 15 minutes before the end of my scheduled time, I will sweep you away to take some super fun, and magical night photos, that are sure to make your wall at home!
I am full of other tips and tricks that will help your wedding day go smoothly, and I come prepared for any kind of crisis! I am basically a photographer with a cape.
