weddings

After photographing so many weddings over the past few years, we've really come to value the unexpected, intimate moments that take place on a wedding day. 

The hug your mom gives you as she finishes buttoning your dress. The small chuckle of "wow" when he sees you walking down the aisle. 


EVERYTHING YOU NEED 
TO KNOW ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

The way you put your hand on his leg during the toasts. 

This day is about more than the flowers and the shoes you chose (although we do love capturing those). It's about celebrating the start of a new family. It's an honor to play a part in such a significant day and we hope you'll choose us to be a part of yours!

next step:

You've thoroughly stalked my website, blog and Instagram feed and you like what you see. So the next step is setting up a time to chat and make sure we're the perfect fit for one another.   

We get to know each other 
over a cup of coffee or glass of wine !

Once your date is officially reserved, we'll send over a little snail-mail surprise to help you prepare for the big day. We're happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!

Date secured. And now the fun begins!

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. Go to the blog to see examples of past engagement sessions for inspiration!

The engagement session. 
Let's get you comfortable in front of my camera

We check in about a month before the wedding to go over timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, and anything else we should know about your big day. We create a detailed timeline for each of our couples so that everyone is on the same page and nothing is forgotten. 

Wedding prep.
Let's get organized for the big day!

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day!

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about six weeks of your wedding. If you chose to purchase a luxury wedding album (you totally should!), this is when we start the design process! So fun! Albums typically take two months from start to finish.

Your images are ready!
