Your Experience

First off, congratulations on your engagement! Preparing for your wedding day can feel exciting and overwhelming at times. I did it all for my own wedding just last year! Let me walk you through what hiring me looks like to help ease some of the overwhelm.

Have a consultation

First things first, we have a consultation to talk through any questions you may have, look through my work, and make sure that we’re a good fit. A local coffee shop is typically my go-to, but if it’s more convenient for you I’d be happy to do a video chat instead. If you and your fiancé are head over heels with me, then we can have the contract signed, deposit paid, and date reserved all before leaving the consultation!


The ENGAGEMENT session

Now here comes the fun part! Engagement sessions are included in my wedding package. It’s an excellent opportunity to get you and your partner comfortable in front of my lens before the big day. You’ll get a taste of what it’s like working with me and I’ll guide you through the whole process to produce that candid, vibrant, approachable photography that I love so much.

Planning

In the coming months I work with you or your wedding planner to fine-tune the timeline of the day to make sure that it fits your photography needs. I will also work with you to finalize a list of guests for the family formals. This will be an immensely helpful guide to make sure that we don’t miss anyone and to make sure that we allot enough time in the schedule to get all the family pictures you need.


Wedding Day

The wedding day has arrived! As you can probably already guess, I LOVE wedding days and am your right-hand girl on your big day. I come prepared with all my gear, extra batteries to spare, and a full shot list of all the things I plan on capturing. You don’t have to worry about telling me to get a shot of your veil or to remember to capture the look on your partner’s face as you walk down the aisle. I’m on top of it! I am there to make sure you can revisit the memories of your wedding day for decades to come.

Gallery Delivery

After the big day is all said and done, and you head off to your honeymoon with tired feet and full hearts, I head back to the office to begin the editing process. Taking no longer than 8 weeks, I hand edit each image to ensure they all look vibrant and beautiful. My editing style is very natural; I like to create a look that will be timeless for years to come. Then you receive an online image gallery that I keep active for 1 year so you can take your time sharing with friends and family. All the images will be downloadable in their most high-res pristine quality so that you can blow them up if you wanted to print them large-format for your home.
