It may come as no shock to you then that I take my role of your wedding photographer very seriously. Documenting your day and your extraordinary love story is my absolute dream job. During this whole process, I want you to feel confident and supported - and so many of my past clients have told me I made them feel just that. Because frankly, you deserve it. You deserve to have a freaking amazing experience, so I do whatever I can to make that happen!
Below is a look into what our time together will look like. Every step of the way I am here supporting and encouraging you. Plus adding a little fun, Jim and Pam style.
It starts with a date. Between me, you, and your dearest. Our date can be over the phone or in person over drinks or ice cream or pizza. Once we've gotten to know each other a bit and the decision to hire me (yay!) has been made, we get to planning! First I'll send over an electronic contract for the both of you to sign, the retainer will be paid, and then the date is officially yours!
From here, my email and phone are completely open to you. Any worry, excitement, or random thought in the middle of the night is what I am here for - and I always respond within a few hours. My clients are my people, and I take
care of my people. I send along helpful info such as a timeline guide, engagement guide, and wedding day advice so the two of you have all the preparation you need! My blog even covers all sorts of relationship info that'll help you long after the wedding day is just a beautiful memory.
About 6 weeks prior to your wedding, I will send along a questionnaire with some general questions + more detailed questions so we are all on the same page! After that, it's wedding day!
My very favorite part, your wedding day! I punctually arrive ready to go with all my gear - multiple cameras, backup batteries, lighting equipment, and a little just-in-case kit. I dress according to your guests' suggested attire, always have a smile on my face and a jig in my feet, and am there to encourage and celebrate you throughout your beautiful day! I am constantly scoping the scene, capturing your wedding exactly how it feels. I photograph multiple angles throughout the ceremony, including your guests, so you can see it from a different point of view.
During family portraits, I always take multiple photos of each grouping just in case anyone blinks or sneezes (has happened before). I spent 11 years working in loud restaurants, so if you're worried about "herding cats," know that I am a bona fide cat-whisperer. And at the reception, I circle those that are not dancing and of course jive with those who are on the dance floor. I've always thought of myself as an extroverted dancing queen - so I will get totally in the action for all the outrageous moments but never forget all those very important people enjoying conversations off to the side.
I provide a sneak peek within 48 hours of your wedding day (you'll have an awesome new profile picture) and have the rest of the photos edited and delivered to your online gallery within 8 weeks (but usually before then). From that gallery, you and all your family are able to order prints of all sizes from a high-quality lab that are sent directly to you!
After it's all said and done, you'll have photos to look back on that hit you right in the feels. These are the photos that will line your walls for decades. They deserve to be photographed, printed, and preserved by those who scrupulously love taking care of you. Like me, I'll take care of you. That's what she said.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride.
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which
there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.
