Your Wedding Experience
You did it! You found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with! This is such a special time in your life and you deserve to savor every moment of it. This is the time to celebrate your love, your partnership, and your journey together.
As your wedding day unfolds, I will be there to document every detail and create joyful, romantic, and timeless images that tell your unique love story. Whether you are having a large celebration with all your friends and family or an intimate gathering with your closest loved ones, my goal is to capture all the beautiful emotions and fleeting moments for you to look back on once your special day is over. After the cake has been eaten and your dress has been put away, your wedding photos will still be there to remind you of the best day ever!
1. Let’s chat!
Congratulations on your Engagement! I’m happy that you are thinking of having me be a part of your special day! I’d love to get to know you and your Fiancé and hear all about your love story. Send me a message in the contact section and I’d be happy to send you my availability for your date and pricing for my wedding collections.
If you’re in the Charlottesville area, we can meet for coffee or if you’re a bit further away, we can always meet up through FaceTime or Zoom and talk all things wedding. If we are a good fit for each other, I will write up a contract for you and get your date booked in my calendar.
2. Engagement Session
Once your date is booked in my calendar, we can schedule your engagement session! All of my wedding collections come with a complimentary engagement session because I believe an engagement session is not only fun but also a great way for us to get to know each other better! There are lots of benefits to having an engagement session before your wedding day. First, you get lots of beautiful photos which you can use for save-the-dates, a guest book, or just to have as a new profile picture. Second, you get to have a super romantic date night with your favorite person. Third, you get more comfortable having your pictures taken before your wedding day. Don’t worry! I’ll be here to coach you through the whole session.
3. Wedding Consultation
Throughout the wedding planning process, I am always available to give you advice and answer any questions that you have. We can also work together to create a wedding day timeline that you can use to organize the day and to schedule your other vendors. A few weeks before your wedding we can schedule a final wedding consultation to go over all the details of your day and to finalize your shot list.
4. Your Wedding Day
It’s finally here! You get to marry your best friend and it is going to be the BEST day ever! On your wedding day, my second shooter and I will arrive early at your venue and scope out all the beautiful locations for photos. After that, we will start photographing all the delightful moments and perfect details of your day. All you need to do is relax and enjoy your special day!
5. Gallery Delivery
A few days after your wedding you will receive a sneak peek. I always like to send my couples a few photos while I am working on editing their full wedding gallery. Within four weeks, you will receive all your wedding photos in an online viewing gallery that you can share with friends and family. Cozy up on the couch, grab a glass of wine, and relive your day with your new spouse! You can also download all of your digital files directly from your wedding gallery and print them at your leisure.
