Tradition is awesome because it connects us with those who have married before us— our parents and grandparents, and even our ancestors. But, just the same, a wedding day isn't complete without touches that are so personal, they couldn't possibly work for another couple.
Yes, it's your wedding day, and we're going to treat it like exactly what it is: one of the most special days of your life. But we also know part of what makes a day special are the inimitable moments that can't be planned— sometimes known as snafus. But when we know those moments are ultimately part of the treasured memories of a day, we can laugh at them and enjoy them with as much pleasure as the "perfect" moments.
When you first inquire about wedding photography, we'll schedule a discovery call, preferably via Zoom, to meet and chat and see if we feel like a good fit. I'm eager to hear your vision for your wedding day and what's important to the two of you as a couple.
Soon after booking, I prefer to do an engagement session with every couple, even a little one. This is an important time for the three of us to learn more about each other and establish a dynamic before your wedding day. Oh, and we get awesome photos, too.
Even with a fantastic planner, there are dozens of decisions to be made in the wedding planning process. I make your photo planning easy with an online worksheet, and then I build a suggested shoot list for you to edit well in advance of your wedding. And we meet the week before your wedding to go over final details, so when your day arrives, you can be footloose and fancy-free.
I will arrive with my team (typically a second photographer and assistant) with a smile on my face and a timeline and shoot list in my hands, ready to capture this very, very important day. From your getting-ready space to the dance floor, we're your companions for the day.
When you receive your delivery of photos (via an online gallery), this is when we start the album design process. My designer creates a suggested layout, and we go back and forth until you're thrilled with the design.
You'll receive your custom-designed, archival, leather-bound album either in the mail or via hand-delivery (my preference, when possible)— an heirloom that will serve as a way to remember your wedding together for decades to come.
