THE FIRST DATE
FROM ME TO YOU
Via email, phone call, or FaceTime, coffee/beer date (pick your drink), I’ll go over everything candidly from contracts and pricing to how I handle every step of the process, including the wedding day. This is all I need from you: Give me all the details, your vision, your expectations and your hopes so that I can fully connect with you and your plans and deliver something that’s beyond what you would have imagined. I want to be there for you in the best way that I can so the more you spill your guts to me the better.
We click, we vibe, we’re giddy about this whole thing and want to make it official! After we’ve settled on what you need for the day, I’ll send you the contract to sign and invoice for a 30% non-refundable deposit to save the date! It’s first-come, first-served like a bachelorette in paradise though, so I’m yours if you give me your rose first (yes, I just did that…)
WILL YOU BE MINE?
ONE MONTH TO GO
I’ll send you a questionnaire close to your date as you’re finalizing all the details. This is just a quick form you can fill out as you go asking for your vendor team, final getting ready/ceremony/reception addresses, a short checklist for you and just a few questions that will help me prioritize special people and moments in your day. We’ll also schedule a phone call to go over your timeline top to bottom so that I can make sure I’m giving you an experience that doesn’t feel like a hectic photoshoot all day and make sure we both know what to expect. I’ve been told by past couples that this has really helped ease the jitters by being able to talk out the day with someone.
You are in the text or call me anytime zone for any last minute changes or if you just need to vent. I text mostly in GIF’s just FYI. By this time, I’ve got the gameplan in my head, I’m dreaming of your venue, I’m checking the forecast everyday, triple checking my gear and back ups, making a playlist for some moments just for you, and watching rom-coms to get me primed and ready.
You can expect me to be there on time, greet you and your friends and fam with hugs and genuine excitement. I’ll help guide the day based on the timeline we talked through so that you can be care free all day. Most of the day is me documenting without being intrusive to your moments so that you feel like you can be present with your loved ones. That means during your ceremony, for example, I try to be as discreet as possible. I’m not going to be running back and forth in front of all your guests the entire duration of your vows. I like to mix in with guests and help them and you to forget about me so that they can focus on you! We’ll grab photos at cool spots around your venue (that I’ve planned out ahead of time to make the most of our time) and then the rest of the time is just stalking you and your guests with my camera while you have fun!
A few days after your big love party, I’ll send you a few sneak peeks from your day to hold you over while I edit the rest of your images. Remember, you’ll get your full online gallery within 6-8 weeks from your date emailed to you with your password and download/printing information. I’ll remind you in this email to BACK IT UP MANY TIMES. These are your artifacts of nostalgia for your future self, so take great care of them :)
