“You don't take a photograph, you make it.”
- Ansel Adams
We'll get to know each other over coffee or tea. I'll tell you about my journey as an artist. I'd love to hear about your love story and how you got to this exciting new chapter together. We'll look at full wedding & engagement galleries. You can peruse through my albums and tell me all about what you have envisioned for your special day. After we put together the perfect package for you, I'll email you a contract and payment plan. Once the contract is signed and the retainer is paid we are officially booked! We can begin celebrating together as I join your wedding dream team!
This is one of my favorite parts of our journey together! I'll help you put together an engagement session that is curated to you as a couple. I have a location library that covers Malibu all the way to the OC to give you examples of possible backdrops. I'll also send you an outfit guide which gives you pointers on how to coordinate looks together. You can even send me photos of your outfit options if you need further feedback on how they'll photograph. The engagement session will be a great opportunity for you both to acclimate in front of the camera. You'll experience how I guide you through poses and I'll get to know your chemistry as a couple. It'll be a great time together and we'll produce some gorgeous keepsake images for you to cherish.
I'll put together a preliminary photography timeline for you based on your ceremony time. This will help your coordinator orchestrate the rest of the schedule. I'll also send you a list of details we will need for the getting ready photos in the morning. I'd also like to touch base with your videographer so we are all on the same page when we are working together.
We'll arrive at your getting ready location and start with detail photos. We pick the perfect locations for your dress, shoes, and other meaningful items and we'll style them artistically to tell a story. We'll grab all the intimate and tender moments with your friends and loved ones as well as all the fun ones in between! We'll guide you through portraits together and with your wedding party and get you tucked away before guests arrive. Along the way we are taking detailed photos of your venue decor so you can see how all of your thoughtful elements came together. From the ceremony through the reception, we go with the flow of the day, trying to be as unobtrusive as possible. We will capture those precious fleeting moments and help keep the day flowing as smoothly as possible. We will take care of all your photography needs and have a mental list of what we need to cover. You can just sit back and ENJOY your big day!
We'll send over some sneak previews because we're just as excited as you are to see the photos! Once all the images have been individually perfected, you will receive your private online gallery. Your USB drive will be shipped to you and I'll begin designing your album layouts. Once the design is approved, your albums will be handmade and shipped to you within 4 weeks.
