First you’ll fill out the Contact Form and tell me about your sweet plans and maybe how they proposed or something nifty about you guys, and I’ll send you out my wedding packet by email filled with pricing, extra details, and insights to help you decide if we’re a match. Ask me anything you like through email, we can set up a phone or skype date, or meet up at a coffee shop, pub, sushi bar…
Next, if you think I’m a good fit we book you in with a digital contract and deposit and then we start planning your engagement session! I truly think they’re invaluable for getting to know one another and finding comfort in front of the camera before the wedding day, and I strongly recommend them. Some packages include them, separately they’re 350 dollars.
Around two months before the wedding day we go through your timeline, I help you build your photo list for family formals, get a list of everyone you hired to make your day amazing, and I’ll send you out some tips for having the best possible day (like how to pee in that gown, and super spiffy tie knots). Then you just sit back and relax and wait for the big day to arrive!
Finally: All that’s left is to get hitched and celebrate!! And maybe anxiously wait for a sneak peek 5 minutes after I leave? You’ll only have to wait two days at the most, I’m on top of that for you – I promise. All your wedding photos will be ready for you between 4-8 weeks depending on my current workload. I’d rather take a little longer and give your photos extra love though!
SO WHAT ARE TAKING PHOTOS REALLY GOING TO BE LIKE?
How I structure portraits and groups for photos involves pretty basic direction with lots of options on your part to leave you free to react to the situation in a way that feels normal and natural for you. For example: if I ask what you had for breakfast you’re free to tell me whatever it was. If I say pretend you had eggs, but you hate eggs, it isn’t going to feel right to say. Know what I mean? So when I give direction for cuddling, some advice on relaxing and being natural and camera ready, and then let you have at it, you make it yours. Overall it’s a very easy experience! I give more direction when I see discomfort, less when you’re lost in the moment, and switch things up between more and less posed.
Does this sound like what you were hoping for? Relaxed posing, a super experienced planning buddy, a natural storytelling approach?
