When choosing me to work with you for your wedding, you are not only getting beautiful photo memories, but a complete wedding experience. After a nice chat about getting to know your wedding needs, I will create a curated wedding photography package that will best suite your needs.
My goal is to make sure that all of your bases are covered, which goes beyond photography. Your day should be seamless from start to finish. I hope to ease your nerves and assure you that "I got you".
With over 400 weddings under my belt, there isn't much that I haven't seen. I want you to feel comfortable that I'll come prepared for any weather, lighting, or time crunch situation.
You're not awkward. Leave that to me.
That's Ok! In fact, my absolute favorite shoots are with people who think they are "awkward" in front of a lens! My couples who feel vulnerable are the ones who actually giggle the most during shoots. Before every shoot, I have a pep talk with my couples to 'warm them up', explaining how to move and walk and hold each other. But throughout the session, I'll still be guiding you, posing you, directing you, and talking you through the entire shoot from behind my camera.
Before booking each wedding, I make sure to hop on a call with all couples. I want to hear your vision and listen to your needs for wedding photography. Every event is unique, as well as every couple. I will be able to determine what sort of package will fit your day. I also get to go over my photography process and how I approach each wedding.
After our phone call I will send your a customize package for you to review. From there we get you on the books!
After the photo session, I get to play some more. When editing images, I like to keep things warm and inviting. I also want to keep your images timeless, yet also give them a fun film like feel. The goal is to have imagery that is creative, yet not dated. I love adding black and white images to the gallery as well. I think they create such a nostalgic feel to the images.
At a photo shoot or a wedding, I'll be continuously talking to you from behind the lens, making you feel comfortable at all times. The portrait part of the day is very curated. That being said, there are certain aspects to a wedding day where you will barely see me. During the ceremony, I'll quietly be dancing around the edges to get all angles; I want to capture your parents crying in the front row, as well as your friends dabbing their tears in the back. During the reception you'll see me on the dance floor with you- I'm always where the action is. This part of the evening is very documentary; letting events unfold naturally. While you will always be my main focus, I know that weddings are the one time if your life when all of your best friends and family are under one roof. I make sure to also turn my camera on to them, as they hug each other at cocktail hour, cheers for you during speeches, and laughing away during dinner. They are just as part of your wedding day as you!!
I like to get your photos back to you as soon as I can! I've gotten editing down to a science at this point, and can get your images back to you pretty quickly. I like to send you your final gallery about 2-3 weeks after your wedding. I find it's best to see your photos in a timely fashion so that you can really remember all the specific moments. I want you to still have that best man speech fresh in your mind when you see the photos of everyone laughing.
After your wedding, you're not done with me! I hope to be in your lives forever. Keep an eye out in your emails for discounts that pop up for the gallery Shop! I also offer album design services for those special memories. Albums make excellent anniversary or holiday gifts. I may randomly message you even months after your wedding just to say hi, or to let you know that your wedding will be featured in a magazine or online blog. The fun never ends with us!
