Your Wedding Day
From the arrival of the bridal party to prepare for the day, helping each other get ready, exchanging gifts and words of encouragement, to the tear that runs down the grooms cheek when he first lays eyes on his gorgeous bride, to the touching speech from Dad, to the sparkler send off, I get the privilege of being a witness and a part of every moment. And this is why I love being a wedding photographer.
Booking Your Wedding
I am so excited to be a part of your day and I can’t wait to begin our journey. After we’ve chatted, gotten to know each other, answered all the questions you have, and you feel confident that I’m the perfect fit for your wedding day, we will book your day. A deposit ($500) is required at this time to secure your date.
Preparing for your day
When it’s time to have our planning meeting, we will sit down with a cup of cocoa, at your house, a cafe, or the studio, and discuss the details of your day. We will go over the timeline, the details of the venue, the special events planned, and any requests. I will be in touch at any time to make any revisions or answer any questions.
On the morning of your wedding day, I will arrive at the salon or house to capture the hair, makeup, laughing and crying, and all the other moments shared. I will get images of the details, the dress, and the shoes. When it comes time to put the dress on, I will be as discreet or as involved as you feel comfortable with. I will also be covering the men getting ready, the pinning on of the boutonnières and straightening each others ties.
I will capture the guests arriving, the groomsmen in waiting, the bridal party entrance, the grooms reaction to the bride as she gets escorted down the isle, and every event of the ceremony.
Formal portraits after the ceremony (or before if you choose to have first look) can be as long or as short as you wish. Some love to take this time to get many family pictures with multiple combinations or have a list made up and let the family members know to stay close ahead of time so you can get right to the reception and not keep your guests waiting. We can also spend an hour on the bride and groom portraits, with multiple locations and poses, or spend ten minutes and get just a few amazing images.
Everything at the reception will be captured- the announcing of the bridal party, the first dances, the dinner, the speeches, the cutting of the cake. I will always be near if you think of a special last minute photo request, but I will not be interrupting your day, unobtrusively working hard to capture all the beautiful moments.
After the Wedding
A few days after the wedding, you will receive a couple sneak peeks. I will also post these to social media for you to share (unless you request otherwise.)
No more than four weeks after the wedding day you will be provided with an online gallery of about 500 to 800 fully edited, high resolution images for immediate downloading and sharing. After I confirm that you love the images and are thrilled with them, I will send you a USB.
Prints and products are not required but if you would like my assistance in ordering a canvas for your home or prints for your family, I am happy to help.
