The Wedding Experience
It’s not just about the photos.
You aren’t just booking a wedding photographer. You are investing in someone who will pour their heart and soul into creating a memorable wedding experience and your very first family heirlooms. That’s BIG. And I’m honored to be the person you choose to join you for your day.
That all sounds amazing, Halie. What can we expect to get us there?
01. You’re Engaged! We Chat.
First things first, request to book your wedding date to let me know you’re interested in having me photograph your day. Once you’ve done that, it’s on me to get right back to you (within 24 hours – if not, check your spam!). We’ll set up a time to chat and decide if it feels like a good fit.
02. We Make it Official.
Naturally, we hit it off and decide to work together! In order to seal the deal and save your date, I’ll send you a custom proposal and your booking contract — a signed contract and retainer makes everything officially official!
03. We Meet for Engagement Photos.
After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. If there’s one thing I can’t emphasize enough — don’t worry, I teach you EVERYTHING! The engagement style guide I’ll give you walks through everything from what to wear, choosing a location, and prepping your boo. At our session, I’ll walk you through each set of shots and you’ll be nerve free in no time — leaving me to capture you naturally (and looking pretty freaking good, too!). Your engagement photos will be ready within 2 weeks — I’ll upload to an online gallery that you can download and share however you wish.
04. We Set the Timeline.
About 8 weeks leading up to your wedding, we’ll begin to make sure that I’m completely prepared to capture your day and every little detail you’ve chosen to include! I’ll work with you or your planner to create a custom timeline that ensures enough time to capture everything you’re hoping for. I also work with you to determine the list of family shots and details that must be captured. Doing this, you’re able to relax and be fully present on your wedding day, knowing that I have it all covered!
04. You Tie the Knot.
This is the best part!! Before you know it, it’ll be time to celebrate, enjoy your day, and leave it to me to capture it all! In order to tell the full story of your wedding day, it’s rare that I’ll cover less than 8 hours of the day. This day is going to go FAST — so it’s up to me to capture the traditional portraits you’ll want (those “forever” photos!), along with the in-between candid moments. We’ll have the details ironed out well in advance so that you’re able to relax and be fully present on your wedding day, knowing that I have it all covered!
05. I Deliver the Goods and Unfold Your Story.
Sadly, the day will eventually come to an end. But before you know it, you’ll be able to relive the day. I’ll share some sneak peeks up on social media, and deliver your FULL wedding gallery within 5 weeks. Every wedding is different, but you can expect between 800-1200 edited, high-resolution photographs. Use gallery delivery as an excuse for a stay-at-home date night! Grab a glass of your favorite wine (or other drink!), and enjoy looking back through the story of your day. Soon after your gallery is delivered, I’ll also send your album design (if you ordered an album!). We’ll go through the customization process and work to get that printed. If you thought the gallery delivery was an experience, wait until you’re holding the storybook of your day.
