• Contact me and let me know you're interested
I will always respond within 24 hours. If I am available on the requested date, I will send you everything you need to know, including information about pricing and packages. If I am not available, I will happily offer you a referral.
• Set up a meeting
I always prefer to meet in person as long as it is convenient. We can also connect by FaceTime or phone if you prefer. During our meeting, I will go over my approach to working with couples and you'll share with me your goals and expectations with regards to photography. We'll discuss pricing and packages and of course, we'll review any questions and concerns you may have.
• Sign the contract and pay the retainer
The next step is to confirm that you would like to book and to specify exactly which services you want. I will then email the contract. Just sign, pay the retainer and your date is confirmed! All payments can be made online by credit card or by Venmo.
• Final payment
The remaining balance plus any additional items added after contract signing is due one week before the wedding.
• Set up your engagement session
If you have booked an engagement session with me, we will first set a date for the shoot. As that date approaches, we'll go over everything from location to wardrobe. These sessions tend to be on the more causal side as I want you guys feeling comfortable in your own shoes. That said, I tend to lean towards quieter, more secluded locations. As the day approaches, I will send you a few tips on what you can do to prepare for the session. After the session, I will send a sneak peak of five or so images within 24 hours and the rest will be available for download within 2 weeks.
• Maintain communication
I am always available should you have any questions or concerns regarding wedding photography, or anything else for that matter. Please feel free to reach out anytime!
• Scout the venue
I always scout the venue before shooting, either on the day of the wedding or earlier. This ensures a smooth process for group photos, portraits and the first look. If you are planning to scout your venue with your coordinator or on your own, please let me know as I would very much like to plan together. If your venue is too far, I will plan on arriving 30 minutes early to confirm locations.
• Final meeting
If possible, I generally like to schedule a meeting one week before your wedding day to go over any last minute details and to be sure we are all on the same page. We can go over your final timeline and any other questions you may have. We can do this by phone or in person. If things get too busy, we can always finalize things by email.
Wedding Day Process
My second shooter (if one is booked) and I will arrive around 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. We will do some last minute scouting and take some scenery shots as necessary. Then, we’ll come find you guys! Remember, we are both here to help you, so if you have any questions throughout the day, just ask!
• The sneak peak...
I know you’re probably dying to see your photos, so within 48 hours of your wedding, I will send you a link with 10 or so of my favorite images. You can share this link with friends and family too!
• Gallery access and image download
Your password-protected online gallery will be available within four weeks of your wedding day. From this gallery, you can view images, select favorites, order prints (optional) or download individual low or high resolution images. You can download the entire set as well. There will be a separate access code to download images. Galleries are provided by Pixieset.
You and I will work together to create the perfect layout. For detailed information about albums and the production process, please visit Details --> Albums.
I will work directly with you on this as well. You'll make your selections, give me two or three songs that are particularly meaningful to you and I will put everything together for you. You will receive a quicktime movie file delivered via DropBox approximately 1 - 2 weeks after I receive your selections.
