Wedding planning is HARD! There are a ton of details to decide on and almost all of them can affect your how your photographs look. But working with me means you get guidance from someone who has been there and done that - someone who can answer your questions from a place of experience and help you problem solve. Read on to learn about the process that will put you and your unique wedding first.
Our first chance to work together will likely be your engagement session, and it's more than just taking a bunch of photos to display on the cake table. It's the perfect way for us to get to know each other and for you to get comfortable in front of the camera - BEFORE the pressure of the wedding day. Together we'll plan a perfect location for your session and set the ideal time of day based on the location and season. Still worrying about how you look in photos? Don't! I'll give you clear directions and help with posing to create beautiful, natural looking photos you'll love. It's also a great time to give your makeup artist a trial run and really find something special to wear - you'll never regret making that extra effort, I promise! Are you celebrating a special anniversary or welcoming a brand new family member? Please get in touch with me - we'll create something wonderful for you to cherish, no matter the season.
Having a solid timeline for your wedding day is the best way to ensure you get the photos you want. But chances are you're pretty early-on in your wedding-planning adventure so I know what you're thinking right now. "Timeline? I'm not ready for that yet!!" I know it can be hard to know EXACTLY how much photography time you need this far in advance - before you've ironed out all the details. That's why all full-day wedding collections already include up to 10 hours of wedding day photography coverage - so that you can focus on creating the day you WANT instead of cramming it into a set number of photography hours. After you've booked me, I'll work directly with your coordinator to make sure there is plenty of space built into your wedding day so you get the photos you want AND allow those beautiful, REAL candid moments to bloom naturally.
Full-Day Wedding Collections start at $3800
You want to know what you're going to get with your photography experience and I totally get that. The consistent style and feel of the photographs in my portfolio are a direct result of careful planning and experience while shooting and editing, both with film and digital mediums. Even if I've never photographed a wedding at your venue before, I understand light (It's my job, after all!) and I'll show up prepared, having done a venue walk-through prior to your wedding day and ready to use the best light available.
During the planning process, you may even have a question about ceremony location and timing or need advice on the location of your cake table. No matter WHAT the question, I can help with solid advice based on experience for beautiful (and consistent) results.
Safe delivery of your photos is a priority for me! In addition to OCD-style file and equipment backups, I'll upload your wedding photos to an online gallery where you can download full-size files, order beautiful prints and other products and share with your family and friends. Just in case you delete your downloads (TRUE STORY!) or forget to backup your files, I'll be backing them up as well for a full year, plus all of my wedding clients get a USB drive that includes their entire gallery of images.
If your collection includes and album, I'll get to work as soon as I complete your gallery on a completely custom-designed layout that tells your wedding day story in a way that will bring the smiles (and tears) for years to come. Your custom album comes with 3 rounds of revisions, all taken care of from the comfort of your couch on a seamless proofing and design platform.
Communication - Throughout your entire photography experience, you'll receive thoughtful and timely communication whenever needed. I really am here to help!
Quick Turnaround - I am just as excited about your photos as you are so I want to get them to you as soon as possible! In most cases, you'll receive your full wedding gallery within 4 weeks after your wedding date.
Your Photos are SAFE! - Rest assured that I take all steps to safeguard your precious photos. From having backup equipment to shooting each photo with a backup copy and safeguarding on local media PLUS the cloud, you can be confident that your photos are safe and secure.
