I believe that God has uniquely created each person in his or her own way. Because of that, no two photo shoots are the same. I love to capture the natural moments between a bride and groom. In those moments a breathtaking image is created. It is so wonderful to have the ability to document a couple’s unparalleled love for one another.
Every time I receive a request from a bride and groom, I see that as a new friendship forming. I desire to be more than just a stranger taking pictures on a wedding day. Taking the time to get to know you as a couple is extremely important to me. By doing so, I am more than able to cater to your needs, and make sure that your personalities radiate through each image. I want you as a bride or groom to be pleased with my work every step of the way as I help capture your special day. It is very fulfilling for me to see the expressions on my clients’ faces when they see their love story come to life.
The first time we communicate might go something like this: You send me an email inquiring about your big day! This is the most exciting part for me; I am filled with excitement to get to know you. We then share emails back and forth to see if I am the best fit for you!
You reserve your big day by signing a contract and pay your 50% retainer. Your day is now saved for you, and you alone! I am all yours, ready to be your personal paparazzi documenting all of your special moments.
I send you a questionnaire. This questionnaire allows me to get to know you better, as a couple and as individuals. I desire to know your love story so I can begin capturing your love story in a way that is unique to you.
The timeline. I hope to meet you both over a cup of warm coffee! If you are unable to meet face-to-face we can exchange information via email or FaceTime. At this time we will go over all the details of your big day! I want to know where I should be, at all times, so I am able to capture those special moments. Along with the time, I also desire to know your shot list (What you desire to see captured on this day).
Your engagement shoot. This is an optional part as an additional package, but I highly recommend it. This shoot allows us to get to know each other more and gives me an up close glimpse into your love story before the big day. It also allows a different level of comfort moving towards your wedding day.
The Big Day: Today is the wedding day and my stomach is full of butterflies right along with you. There is something about declaring your love for someone in front of your family, friends, and God, that makes every moment magical. This is the day we have been planning for. Sit back, relax, and remember to enjoy it. I will be with you along this journey making sure to capture all the smiles and heartfelt tears.
The last and final step. You receive your images. Depending on the package you choose, you might receive a link and password to an online gallery. You might receive your wedding album at your humble abode or a little flash drive with all of your favorite moments on it. Whatever form your images might be delivered to you in, I hope that you love and cherish them for years to come as a sweet reminder of why you said “I do.”
I hope this doesn't mean goodbye for us! Feel free to contact me any time after. I would love to hear from you. It’s great to hear from a couple that is celebrating their wedding anniversary. It’s a great reminder of the love I was so blessed to document.
In order to capture an authentic image, I believe it is important to build a relationship with my clients. In doing so, I am able to make sure you are as comfortable as possible in front of the camera.
