A step by step guide to what it’s like to work with me
Step 1: We chat it up!
We hop on a FaceTime or Skype call and chat all about your wedding day vision and we get to know each other. Tell me all your hopes and dreams for your wedding and I can help with timeline building so we get everything captured that you want. If you’re good to go and want to work with me, then I send you a contract to make it official!
Step 2: Engagement Session Time!!
We get your engagement session scheduled! After your deposit is paid, we can then discuss when you'd like to schedule your complimentary engagement session. I don’t charge for traveling for the engagement session, so we can go wherever your heart desires! I love adventuring with my coupes for their engagement session so we can hang out, you get to see my shooting style, and we just have fun!
I typically deliver your entire engagement gallery within 7-10 business days, but I also send a sneak peek a day or two right after our session in case you need a photo to make your 'save the dates' or wedding website.
Step 3: Break time!
After your engagement session, you won't really hear from me until we get closer to your wedding day. But if you have any questions about timeline building, wedding day details, or anything, you can message me at any time. Seriously! If you need help glueing seashells to some mason jars- I’m your girl!
Step 4: Wedding Questionnaire, here we go!
I send you a wedding questionnaire via email about 6 weeks before your wedding day. This questionnaire helps me create the customized gallery for you that is unique to your love story. I ask for wedding day specifics like location of ceremony, reception, wedding timeline, what detail shots you'd like, etc. It should only take about 10 minutes to complete.
I also ask all my couples to put together a Shot List and a Wedding Timeline for me as a guide and as a way to keep everthing organized and on schedule. You can put those in an email or in the questionnaire.
What's a shot list?
A Shot List is a list of all possible combinations you want for family portraits. This really helps get through family portraits quickly and back to your wedding day events. If you need an example of a shot list, just shoot me an email!
Step 5: The Big Day!
Wedding Day! YAY! I tend to arrive a little before our scheduled time to meet just to scope the area out for family pictures, first look, bridal party photos, golden hour photos, etc. I’m with you each step of the way so whatever you need on your wedding day- just let me know!
PS: I’ll also be bringing snacks, lots of water, and even TUMS if you need it.
Step 6: The Aftermath
Wedding Day Sneak Peek Gallery!
I usually send you a sneak peek within 24-48 hours after your wedding just so you can relive it all over again, change your profile picture, etc. The rest of the gallery is sent out within 3-4 weeks.
I also send you a 25 matted print set gift of some of your day's biggest moments like first kiss, first dance, first look, etc, just so you have printed pictures ready to display in your home if you'd like!
