My Process

Every step of the way, I am here to help tell your story in all of its beautiful details. Since every photo is a chance to share your tale for years to come, it’s my mission to make every image stand out in its clearest form.

 

Our journey together starts with a consultation, where we get to sit down and meet. I love getting to know my couples and know their vision intimately to best deliver on what they’re looking for. I get excited each time I get to hear the heart behind their incredible day. I’m very communicative throughout the months leading up to the wedding, and it’s my goal to make it stress-free throughout the process. It’s an important day, and it should be enjoyed to its fullest.

Over the course of our planning, I enjoy staying engaged through social media, getting to know the couple and their lives during the wedding planning process. 

Within the first week of signing the contract, the deposit is due. At this point, an engagement session is planned, which is included in my wedding package. I’m very involved in setting up the shoot which includes choosing a location that means a lot to the couple. Sometimes it’s returning to a place where the proposal happened, it might even be where they first met. It’s all about the couple’s story, first and foremost. All digital files are hi-res and emailed with a link to download. Typical processing time is 2-4 weeks.

 

A month before the wedding, I like to get together with the couple and go over every detail of the special day. This includes family photos, names in the wedding party, vendor names, etc. At this point, we finalize the wedding timeline accounting for any hitch that might come along. I highly encourage the bride to share the timeline with the wedding party and the vendors so everyone’s on the same page. The remainder of the package price is paid at this time.

 

Your wedding day. It’s finally come to this incredible moment, and it should be fully enjoyed. I’m here to document it in all of its beautiful details, big and small. My full day coverage starts 30 minutes before the dress goes on, and my second shooter spends this time with the groomsmen. After everyone is ready I love capturing couples having their first look. It’s a really special to have a moment shared between the two, to just be with and breathe each other in.

 

After the ceremony and reception, my full day coverage ends after the main events such as cake cutting and first dance, about 15-20 minutes into open dancing. For an additional fee, I can stay until the end of the night.

 

It takes an average of 6-8 weeks to process the photos (those weeks are peppered with sneak peeks on social media). After that, I send all the digital files to access and enjoy via an online gallery. Wedding albums are offered as add-ons; although they are at the heart and soul of what I do. Your wedding photo album is your tangible heirloom of love passed down through generations and I believe every couple should have one.

Get in touch. I’m excited to meet you and get to know your incredible story.
