I am so excited that you are considering me to tell your love story! I would love to sit down and chat with you, so that I can answer some questions for you, and so that we can get to know each other a bit, to see if we are a good fit. I will be with you for the entire day, so it's important that you like me. :) My main goal is always to make your wedding day even better than it would be without me there, help you relax, and document moments that you don't even see happening at the time. If you are ready to move forward, I will have a contract for you to sign. Once you sign the contract and pay the deposit of $500, then the fun begins!
I will help you navigate and plan your wedding day schedule, giving suggestions for the best photos, but always giving you the final say. I am happy to reply to as many emails or phone calls as it takes to help you feel prepared.
I include a complimentary engagement shoot, and a flash drive of the images. I believe it's important to have you get to know me, and my style of shooting, and it helps you be much more relaxed on your wedding day if you have had a "practice run" with being in front of the camera. Plus, then you have awesome images of the two of you to prove your love. :) And for a save-the-date, or displaying at your wedding, or using for a custom guest book.
On your wedding day, I will be unobtrusive, yet will be quietly capturing every detail. Since I use a second photographer, we can often literally be in two places at once, to make sure we don't miss a thing. I pride myself on my detail shots, making the things you chose for your wedding look amazing. I never pressure you to see each other before the wedding, but if you choose to, First Look photos are some of my favorites. Capturing the look on your faces, when there are no other distractions, is priceless, and you will love those images.
I own 3 of the highest quality flashes, and know how to create amazing light in a dark reception. This is important if you want good photos of your first dance, and everything else that happens at your reception. It's so fun to look back through all the pictures of your guests dancing the night away - moments you probably didn't even see.
4-6 weeks after your wedding, I will have a password-protected gallery ready for you, where you can view all of the images from your special day. This gallery is great because you can pass it on to anyone who might want to view them, and anyone can order lab-quality prints directly from the site. This means they don't have to bother you for the images, because you have better things to be doing as a newlywed. ;)
I believe that it's your wedding, so you should own the images! I always give you a flash drive with complete printing rights as a part of every package.
I offer albums, prints, and books a la carte, so if you decide to purchase something at a later date, I am happy to help you!
If you have any other questions, I would love to try to answer them! Please email me at [email protected] Better yet, let's set up a coffee date!
