Getting engaged is one the most amazing moments in your life. Your heart feels full and it marks the moment when you and your love start the process of forever and always. Once you have your date and venue locked in, the next stop is often photography. Not only can we help answer questions but we have a lot of knowledge about the industry and suggestions that help that to do list seem less overwhelming. Our goal is to make couples help make your day a stress free one filled with unforgettable memories and lots of awesome photos.
Q: We want to book, what’s the first step?
A: Once you have contacted us, we schedule a little meet and greet. It gives us a chance to get to know one another and see if it’s a good fit. I love meeting couples whose personality and style meshes with mine because it just means that everything is going to be that much more amazing. At this meeting I will go over the contract, pricing, and any other question that come up. From there, all you have to do is send me the contract and then we get to start planning your engagement session!
Q: Why are engagement sessions included?
A: Engagement sessions are important for a couple of reasons. The first is they are a chance for us to become more familiar with one another in a more casual setting. They are a celebration of your engagement, for many couples it’s the first moment they have that makes it all feel real. For me it’s an opportunity to see how the two of you interact and you two get to become more familiar with being in front of my camera. That way when I am taking a million photos of you on your wedding day, you already know the drill and feel relaxed. Plus during our in person ordering session I get a little sneak into the types of photos that you guys are drawn to which allows me to create even better images on the big day!
Q: Does someone else shoot with you?
A: Yes, I have another photographer who shoots all the weddings with me, her name is Amanda Patrice and she is absolutely amazing! We work exclusively as a team so when you book your wedding you are booking both of us. We have been shooting weddings together for the past three years and love working as a team! It’s an advantage for you because not only do we get different angles but it allows us to be in two places at one time if need be. We don’t see it as one primary and one second shooter we really do love sharing the lead which makes room for more creativity and better coverage during the wedding day.
Q: What is an In-Person Ordering Session and what happens?
A: In a world of digital everything we find it helpful for couples to see their images in real life. After your engagement session we meet up with the “proofs” from your session. These are the best of the best from your shoot, we lay them all out on the table and you get to pick with ones you love! From there we chat about how you would like to use your credit and show you all our awesome art products. Our goal is to get your images off your computers and onto your walls or into an album. We do the same thing for your wedding except it’s a digital gallery since there are to many awesome shots. We still take the time to help you through the deciding and ordering process in person. Wedding photography is an investment, we want you to get the most out of that investment. Creating art from your special day just makes your investment that much for special and helps your images to live on so that future generations can enjoy them as well!
Q: Are digital images included?
A: Yes. As much as we want to help turn those digitals into more, such as albums and prints, we also understand how important it is to have the digital copies as well. Every wedding is different so we don’t like to quote a specific number of images but rest assured you will get to have all the best images from your day! Plus our on-line gallery is easy to share!
Q: Do you shoot destination weddings?
A: Yes, we love destination weddings! Travel and mileage can affect he pricing however, but that is varied based on the location.
If you have any other questions please please don’t hesitate to shoot us an email or give us a call! Every couple and every wedding is unique and we love being able to tailor our packages to suit your needs!
