BOOKING

1. Check Availability

The first step is to get in touch with me by phone/text or email to check availability. The easiest way is to use the contact form on my website.

2. Introductory Chat

Next, we’ll set up a time to talk either in-person or over the phone about your wedding day plans and what you are looking for in a photographer.

This is a great opportunity for us to talk about the details of what you have planned so far and go over any questions you have before committing to a photographer.

3. Booking Your Photographer

When you are ready to go forward and book me as your photographer. All that is needed to reserve your wedding day is a signed contract and deposit.

Once that is taken care of we will be all set! Your date will be reserved on my calendar and you’ll have one less thing to worry about!

Planning

About 8 weeks before your wedding day, I’ll get in touch and we can talk over more of the final details that you have set up. We’ll set up a time to meet again to go over your timeline, photo ideas, and anything else to make sure we are 100% ready for the big day.

ON THE WEDDING DAY

Prep

The first thing I will photograph when I arrive is capture the details of your wedding day preparation.

Depending on your plans, I usually start with photos of hair and makeup finishing touches. I’ll capture some fun photos of you with your wedding party, the dress “zip-up”, and I’ll capture the details.

Ceremony

This is what we’re all here for!

When the ceremony begins, I will capture all the big moments of the ceremony such as the procession, vows, and the first kiss.

Portraits

We’ll capture some formal photos with you, your family, your wedding party, and anyone else you want.

We’ll start with some of those more traditional photos in front of the ceremony venue and then we’ll have some fun with more creative photos.

Reception

After the big events of the day, now it’s time to have some more fun!

I will capture the reception and all those big moments that happen as your family and friends gather to celebrate you. I’ll be there for the speeches, first dances, cake cutting, and dancing photos.

Details

In addition to all the big moments, all the small details will also be captured.

AFTER THE WEDDING DAY

After the wedding day, I definitely want you to see some of the photos right away. So I’ll have a SNEAK PEEK for you on social media with the top highlights from your day. Those are usually ready by the next day!

When your photos are ready, usually between 3-6 weeks after the wedding day, I’ll create an online gallery where you will be able to view, download, and order optional prints.
