Your Wedding Day
Planning a wedding is daunting- there are a million decisions to be made before saying “I do”. I am here to help guide you through the process, and ensure that you have wedding photos you love. Below you’ll find some information on what to expect before, during, and after your wedding.
Reserving Your Date
The first step is to reach out and inquire about your date. I’ll let you know my availability, and after that we can set up a time to chat on the phone so we can get to know more about each other and I can learn about you, your partner, and your wedding day!
LOCK IT DOWN
In order to reserve your date, I require a signed agreement and a 25% retainer. All of this is done online and is super easy! Once that is paid, you’re officially booked! The remaining amount will be due no later than two weeks prior to your wedding date.
Scheduling Your Engagement Session
Wedding Collections include a complimentary engagement session. Engagement sessions are great because you and your partner can spend some time together before the wedding and capture this special time in your lives. It also gets you more comfortable in front of the camera!
Most couples' photos are selfies or photos strangers took for them on vacation- it is so important to capture how you make each other laugh and how much you love each other.
Planning Your Day
HIT ME UP
I’m here to be your resource to help you plan your wedding day. There are a lot of different ways to structure your day: first looks vs. no first look, family formals before the ceremony vs. after, attending cocktail hour vs. scheduling portraits during cocktail hour. At any point during your planning, you can reach out to me and I can give you some insights.
Two weeks prior to your wedding date, I will email you a questionnaire to get all the details of your day. This way I can get all the info on the schedule, your family photos, and any must-have shots.
The Big Day
I capture most of the day as it all unfolds with a documentary approach. I love the real, authentic moments that happen throughout the day. For the portraits, I'll scope out some great locations and help guide for some poses, but most importantly I capture the love you two share and let your personalities show!
BEST DAY EVER
The day is finally here! All you gotta do is get married to the love of your life. I’ll be there capturing all those moments, both big and small with my ninja-like skillz.
Receiving Your Photos
SNEAK PEEK PHOTOS
Three days following your wedding, you’ll receive a couple preview photos via email for you to share and post!
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS BACK?
Within six weeks of your wedding date, you will receive a gallery of your photos.
HOW WILL WE RECIVE OUR PHOTOS?
You will be emailed an online gallery of the digital images through a website called Pixieset. You will receive both web-quality and print-quality versions of each photo with This way you can share them on Facebook, Instagram or get them printed!
CAN I SHARE OUR GALLERY?
Yes! You can share your gallery link with your family, friends and guests. You’ll receive a download PIN along with your gallery, which you can give to others to download the photos. Don’t be too offended when your aunt only downloads the photos of her.
HOW LONG WILL WE HAVE ACCESS TO OUR GALLERY?
Your gallery will be live for one year after your wedding date. You will receive an email before it expires. I recommend downloading the gallery in its entirety, and saving the photos in two different places to be safe!
CAN I PRINT OUR PHOTOS?
Of course! You will have personal printing rights to print the photos as many times as you wish.
Printing photos has become lost in this digital age, so I highly recommend physical copies of your memories.
All of the print-quality images you’ll receive are optimized for printing. You can also directly order prints through the gallery. I use a professional printing lab that will ship your photos directly to your door. It makes things easy and guarantees the quality!
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
You bet I do! I can design you a custom album, reach out and we can chat about it!
