Investing in a photographer for your wedding day is a huge decision. There are so many things to think about!
What is most important to you in a wedding photographer? Maybe it's getting along with your photographer, maybe its the photographer's style of working, and maybe its even the editing style of the photographer. All of these things and even more can be very important, and I hope to be a great fit for you and your hunny!
I can talk allll day about why I make a perfect professional third wheel, but I'll save you from that. Here's the short version: your photographer will be with you for the most important parts of your big day, so you should choose someone you can count on to be your hype-girl, someone to hang out with, and someone who will definitely make your big day better! I want to be that person for you, while I capture the most special moments of your wedding day.
Most photographers can give you pretty pictures, but you deserve more than that. Choosing me means you are choosing a photographer who wants to make this day the best day you can have. I won't rush you through poses or make the day feel like a chore. I love getting to know my clients personally, even before your wedding day. Meeting for coffee before the big day to do a little planning sesh and getting to know one another is a great way for me to do this, so if you're down for that, then we might be a perfect fit.
On your wedding day, I am there solely to serve you and your partner. I will help you coordinate the chaos of the day, getting family together and delegating tasks to your trusted loved ones. It's important to me that you have the smoothest running day possible and I solemnly swear that I will do everything in my power to make that happen for you.
Contact me! Let's get in touch. We'll chat about your date, your hunny, and anything else about you and your wedding day!
Contract & Deposit
Once you decide on me (YAY!!!) let me know! I require a signed contract and 50% non-refundable deposit for any booking, wedding or otherwise. This step will lock in your date on my schedule and you can plan the rest of your special day knowing you'll have someone to capture it!
As your day approaches, know that I am here to answer any of your questions. As your wedding photographer, I hope that your wedding day goes exactly as you envision it! It should be the best day of your life! With that in mind, we will work together to plan a schedule for the day, get a must-have picture list together, and set expectations for the day. If you have any planning questions, or just need someone to talk to, I will be there for ya! I wanna be your best friend through this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
This is one of my favorite parts of working with you! The wedding day is great, but this is where I really get to know you and your hunny! We can get a sense of how you interact in front of the camera and how I work with you.
The Special Day
In one sentence, my part of your wedding day goes like this: I will show up for YOU. On your day, I will be there for all the big parts of the day that we have discussed together! I am going to be your professional third wheel and do whatever I can to make this day the best day of your life.
After Your Day
I know that it is so hard to wait for wedding pictures! I waited almost three months for mine a year ago! My goal for each wedding is to have them back to you within two months. At the very latest, your pictures will be back to you in three months. Included in each wedding package is a print release, so once you have your images, you will be able to do what you please with them. I highly recommend ordering through a professional lab, which I supply for you. In your gallery, you will be able to download all images in high resolution files, order products such as albums and prints, and share your gallery with family so they can order prints and download files too! If at any point after you receive your images, you have a question, I am here for you! My dedication to your wedding photography experience doesn't end on the wedding day :)
I really want to feel a connection with my clients, which means that I give my full attention to you and your hunny! I value personal connections with my couples and would love to have a cup of coffee with you before your big day so we can get to know each other. I believe that if you feel comfortable with your photographer, you will feel comfortable in front of the camera.
I am a professional photographer that provides great quality photos with the best equipment. This includes shooting with two SD cards so that your photos are 100% protected from technology malfunctions.
Yes!!! If you have a destination wedding coming up, contact me for pricing. Major discounts are given for destination weddings.
A second shooter is not included in the standard packages. However, I would love to provide you with a second shoot upon request. Contact me for pricing of a second shooter.
A second shooter gives you more angles of pictures, can help the "getting ready" pictures go faster, and in general just provides you and me with more support. I enjoy working with a second shooter, but don't feel like you need one! I am more than capable of capturing each and every special moment of your day single-handedly.
Yes! If you are having a great time and want to continue, that is absolutely fine (granted I have time). I will send an invoice for the extra time after the session which must be paid before you receive your gallery.
Absolutely not. I will give you the option to print through a professional lab, but your price includes a print release so you can print wherever you'd like. I recommend you print though a professional lab, but it's not required.
I offer anything from plain prints to canvases, wall art, and even albums. If you are curious about the costs of these items prior to booking, please fill out the contact form and let me know what questions you have!
Yes! I value protecting and serving my clients so that they can have peace of mind while working with me.
Yes!!! I always require a contract to be signed to protect both parties. This contract will outline how many pictures you will receive, what timeframe I will be shooting your wedding, and a ton of other things to keep me accountable.
It depends on the season - I love my jumpsuits and jackets in summer, but winter brings black jeans and dressy tops! I dress professional, but with style. If you want me to dress in a certain attire, please discuss with me prior to the event.
My turn around time for weddings is three months - during this time I will spend countless hours making sure each image you receive is perfectly hand-edited.
Unfortunately, I do not. However, I can get you in touch with some amazing videographers I would highly recommend and trust with my own wedding day!
