First off - Congratulations!! It's time to kick off wedding planning. The first step is to send me an email! I want to learn about what makes your relationship special. What do you two like to do for fun? Are you the couple who wants a big party with everyone killing it on the dance floor, or are you more low key, looking to have a small intimate wedding with your closest friends and family? Either way, I am excited you are considering me as your photographer! Head over to my contact page and let's get to know each other!
You've sent your email off - now what?
I am so excited to read it! From here, I will reach out so we can get to know each other better. I will put together a wedding day timeline for you based on what you are looking for, as well as provide you a quote. Each quote is created custom to meet your needs. During this time, I also help you with any other aspects of planning where you might feel stuck. I have worked with several wedding vendors, and love to give you recommendations for DJ's, planners, rentals, florists and more! We can chat over email, phone call, facetime, or my favorite - meet up in person! When you're ready to book, a 25% deposit is due to hold your date.
You've booked your wedding date with me! What's next?
An engagement session!! With all wedding packages, I offer a complimentary engagement session! This helps us to get to know each other even better and you will get to learn exactly what taking pictures will be like on your wedding day. Engagement sessions are a great way to get comfortable in front of a camera. Plus you get amazing pictures, of course!
A couple months before your wedding, I will send you a questionnaire for you to fill out with all of the details of your wedding day, as well as some tips to get ready for pictures. Within two weeks of your wedding date, we will either have a phone call or facetime to review all of the finalized details of your wedding day. We review any new details that may have popped up, things that may have changed, and walk through your timeline one more time.
ITS YOUR WEDDING DAY!
At this point, we know each other, you trust me, and all the planning is done. We're going to have the BEST day! You can find me arriving early to see what the light is like at the location, and picking out the best spots for portraits. I am not only there to capture your big day, but to be by your side and make sure it is everything you dreamed it would be!
The wedding is over, and it was AMAZING! What's next? Sneak peaks of course!! I always send at least 25 sneak peak pictures within 2 days of your wedding. Warning- I might get carried away and send you 40! These pictures will be highlights of the whole day from start to finish. You can share these on social media, send them to friends and family, and re-live the best day of your life through pictures.
Within 4-6 weeks of your wedding date, you will have all of your pictures delivered to you via a digital gallery and USB drive. You are welcome to share these on social media, print them and hang them up in your home, and share them with your loved ones.
You have your digital images and you can't stop staring at them. But you know what's better than digitals, especially when technology is constantly changing? An ALBUM!! If you included an album in your original package, chances are I have already started working on it for you after delivering your pictures. I will send you the album digitally to make comments on. Once we've gone through one or two revisions remotely, we will meet in person to finalize the layout and for you to select your linen or leather album color.
If you did not include an album in your initial package, you are welcome to add one at any time!
