EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
the Wedding Experience
Your wedding day is one of the most significant moments in your life, and I am honored you are considering partnering with me to capture this special day! Using both film and digital, your engagement session and wedding day are approached with the eye of a photojournalist (photographing the moments as they happen) and the creativity of an editorial fine art photographer (stylized flat lays, iconic detail shots). My job is to document those fleeing in between moments and encapsulate them into a tangible form so my clients can pass down their memories for future generations.
My goal is to create a genuine relationship with you that will allow you to fully entrust in me the privilege of capturing your love artistically through my lens. My couples are gently directed and not overly posed. I love getting to know you both and hearing all the wedding details. I want my clients to look at their images and relive the warmth and authenticity of each moment. Every intimate kiss, carefully crafted detail, and unexpected dance move. At the end of the day, this is all about you! Impeccably detailed service and stunningly beautiful images are my promise to you as we embark on this journey together.
1. Inquire about your date via the contact form. I recommend booking as far in advance as possible, as dates tend to fill up quickly! Couples typically book 12-18 months in advance.
2. We schedule a call or video chat to connect with one another and discuss your wedding day details.
3. You will receive a custom quote outlining everything we discussed.
4. You're ready to book!
5. A signed digital contract and 25% retainer are due to complete the booking process and secure your date.
For couples who booked an engagement session, we will begin the scheduling process! You'll receive a separate link outlining all the details from location ideas to rescheduling policies.
I'll also be in communication with your planner to develop a seamless wedding day timeline and finalized family portrait list. Customized timeline plans are included in your wedding collection if you do not have a planner - this is so vital to making sure your day runs smoothly! I'll also send over vendor recommendations for a stress free planning experience.
I also love to hear about all the wedding details - I love when couples text pictures of their flowers, mail me a set of their invitation suite, or simply call to ask my opinion on a design! So happy to help see your vision come to life!
It's here - the day you've been planning for and dreaming about for months, even years. I'll show up a bit earlier than my start time to set up, do a walkthrough of my mental shot list, and begin your detail styling. Then the fun begins! I'll be with you every step of the way - reminding you to breathe, helping to move things around and position people to get the most gorgeous photos, keep the timeline on track, and of course, to celebrate you and your love!
The last part of the process comes about 8 weeks after the wedding day when I send you the final online gallery! This private gallery will include your high resolution, fully edited images and film scans ready for download. You will have printing rights to all images for personal use and are welcome to share the gallery with family and friends. I'll then be in contact to see if you'd like to purchase an album or heirloom photo box! Although our contracted communication may end, I love to stay in touch with my couples long after their weddings - so don't be a stranger!
Since every wedding is unique, I offer customized pricing for my couples based on their needs and budget. Custom quotes are available for elopements, intimate weddings, and full wedding day coverage. Portrait sessions begin at $550.
As I value quality over quantity, I take on a maximum of 20 weddings a year. I strive to create the best possible experience for all my couples throughout the entirety of the wedding process.
