Most Brides (and some Grooms!) dream of their wedding day their entire lives, imagining every detail from the ring, to the dress, to the cake. If you're here, that means you've probably found your Soul Mate and are about to embark on the most exciting chapter of your entire lives! We would be honored to help you document this incredibly special day!
We understand that every wedding is unique, just like every couple is unique. So, we are happy to customize our packages to fit your vision. Contact us today for a consultation, and we will send you our Wedding Investment Guide for you to review. We can't wait to hear from you!
We are so glad you're here! We would absolutely love to help you document your special day through authentic, creative imagery. We love working with joyful couples who prioritize their photography experience, and, like us, believe in preserving their memories for generations to come. We have three Wedding Collections to choose from that provide various products and services. However, we can also customize a package to fit your unique vision. Our Collections start at $3,800.00. We can't wait to get to know you better and hear all about your love story! Contact us to schedule a phone consultation today!
How do I secure you as my photographer?
Just email us through our contact section right here! We will get back with you shortly to set up a complimentary phone consultation, in which we will find out more about your event and get to know you both better. During that phone call we will discuss pricing, package options, and set a date and time to meet for coffee and sign the contract. A $250 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your wedding date. Dates can only be held for up to three days without a deposit. We take payments in the form of cash, check, all major credit cards, and PayPal.
How much do you charge for weddings?
Every wedding is as unique as the beautiful couples planning them. We have packages and will send you our Wedding Investment Guide during the initial phone consultation. However, we are also happy to customize a package to meet your individual needs. Our packages start at $3,800.
are engagement sessions included?
All three of our collections include engagement sessions, or you can book one as a stand-alone session for $495. This would include 20 edited digital images.
How far in advance should we book?
Some brides book as far in advance as 18 months! I take a very limited number of weddings per year, so I would suggest booking at least 9 months in advance to ensure the availability of your date.
What time should our ceremony be?
We LOVE this question!!! If your wedding is outdoors and you have the option, booking your ceremony for the hour leading into sunset is ideal. This provides the best lighting for your ceremony and great lighting for your pre-ceremony pictures, as well.
Should I do a Bridal Session?
We think Bridal Sessions are a fantastic opportunity for our Brides to not only capture gorgeous, relaxed bridal images but also to test out hair, makeup, shoes, and undergarments. Nothing is worse than getting dressed on your wedding day only to realize that your corset is stabbing you in the ribs or your shoes feel like your feet have been caught in a bear trap. Testing everything out during the Bridal Session will help you feel much more sure of everything on your BIG DAY. (Pro Tip: Ask your florist for an extra bridal session bouquet! This can be a slightly smaller, simpler version of your wedding day florals or you can go all out!)
Do you have vendors you recommend for hair, makeup, etc?
Yes! We have make-up artists, hair stylists, and florists we can recommend, as well as venues with which we love to work. We also have caterers that create food that will melt in your mouth! Our brides also add to this list whenever they have a great experience with a particular vendor. We can e-mail you our Preferred Vendor list along with your Wedding Investment Guide.
Are you available to travel for out of town weddings?
YES! We LOVE to travel and capture images in new exciting places! If your wedding is a destination wedding, the total package price would be the Collection pricing plus the total cost of travel and accommodations.
If you could make style suggestions that help create beautiful timeless images, what would you suggest?
We absolutely LOVE helping brides bring their vision to life! After shooting almost one hundred weddings over the course of 10 years, there are a few things we find to be universal that can truly give any wedding a high end timeless look. Number 1: FRESH FLOWERS. . Number 2: SOFT COLORS. Number 3: VENUES WITH TONS OF NATURAL LIGHT. Number 4: JOYFUL COUPLES!!! No matter how simple or extravagant the details are, your joy will shine through on your wedding day and be the magic ingredient that creates incredibly authentic, beautiful images. So, relax and embrace the joy of your day!
Will I have rights to my images?
All of our Wedding Collections include your edited digital negatives on a beautiful custom USB drive. We LOVE when our clients share their images with their family and friends! You will have a copyright release that covers this in more detail. And of course, we always appreciate when our clients take the time to tag us in their photos and let their friends and family know who took them! The best part for us after the wedding is watching as the comments flood into your Facebook or Instagram feed!
What is a "First Look" and why should I (or shouldn't I) plan to do one?
This is a GREAT question. We LOVE photographing First Looks! And this is why: It gives us, as photographers, the ability to select the best location, lighting, and backdrop for that special moment when you see each other for the first time. (This eliminates the possibility of Aunt Ethel leaning in front of me with her camera phone and blocking my shot at the exact moment you walk down the aisle and that tear falls!) It can be private and intimate with only the two of you (plus me quietly clicking in the background), or it can be a family affair. Most couples choose to make it a quiet moment between them to exchange gifts, letters, or just soft words and kisses. I keep my distance and give you your privacy during these moments while still capturing the authentic emotion for you to look back on later. As an added benefit, if you choose to do a first look, ALL of your wedding party AND family pictures can be done BEFORE the ceremony. This eliminates the standard hour-long wait for your guests between the Ceremony and Reception. First Looks have many benefits. However, if you have always dreamed of that moment walking down the aisle and you feel a first look goes against everything you've ever envisioned... don't do it. Be true to your vision. Guests will wait, and I will do my best to side-step Aunt Ethel!
