The Wedding Experience
Planning and preparing for your wedding is such a special time and I want to be here to help you have the most beautiful day possible! Some of the most stunning weddings are not the most expensive weddings, but are detail oriented and have been carefully thought out. When you and your fiancé are a #scpcouple, I will be there each step of the process to make sure your wedding day is everything you dreamed of!
First, send me a inquiry to see if I’m available for your wedding. I hate turning away couples due to being booked, so once you have your venue secure, go ahead and send me a message. I’ll then give you a call to discuss the wedding package and find out more about your special day. After the call, if you’d like for me to be your photographer, I’ll send you a contract to sign electronically and an invoice for a non-refundable retainer to secure your date. (This retainer goes towards the balance of your total payment.) We do not need to be in the same city for this to happen as we usually meet for the first time at the engagement session, or sometimes the wedding (if a non-local wedding).
Follow me on Instagram and add me as a friend on Facebook. I want you to know that your wedding photographer isn’t just someone trying to make a quick buck. I’m a business owner, mom, wife, wannabe yogi, lover of all pretty things and most importantly, your friend on this amazing journey! Use the hashtag #scpcouple to show everyone you have found your wedding photographer! I don’t take it lightly that I have created a community of amazing bride and grooms and love to show you guys off! There's also an exclusive Facebook group for SCP Couples to share advice, tips and more.
Engagement sessions are so much fun! This is when I meet most of my couples for the first time. I have no expectations for you to pose yourselves like models or know what to do. I will send you styling inspiration before the day, help you select a location and will pose/guide you the whole time. Bring your dogs, some wine, cozy blankets or whatever makes you comfortable! Each couple is different and I work with each one to create the perfect feel for their engagement session. (Example: Country chic in a field or an up-scale engagement in the city.) If you are taking bridal portraits, we will also plan out that session during this time. For engagements, bridal sessions and your wedding day, I can recommend different vendors that you may need. I also have checklists and guides that are exclusive to SCP couples to make your planning easier.
Planning your wedding around ample natural light will hep create time for beautiful portraits. Don’t get me wrong, I know how to use flash to light up different lighting scenarios, but nothing makes me swoon more than images before sunset! We will talk about the perfect time for the ceremony, the importance of a first look (not all couples do this and that is totally fine with me), wedding day details, exits, and more.
To me, this is the BEST part- the day you have been dreaming about for so long has finally come. Let me do the work and you have the time of your life with your boo, family and friends! By this point, all of the planning, details, emails, etc. will come together and make for one amazing day! Enjoy a small preview of your wedding images within 24 hours of your wedding day.
Within 6-8 weeks after your wedding day, you will receive an online gallery with your edited wedding images. If you would like an heirloom album, we will work together on the design. The album will be delivered shortly after the final design is approved.
We will have worked together for many months (or even more than a year) and I don’t like for great relationships to go to waste. Let’s stay connected via social media and meet up for coffee or lunch sometime! I love hearing how life is going after the wedding. I’m always up for hanging out with my SCP couples!
