To get started, go ahead and fill out the contact form! I’ll get back to you in two shakes of lambs tail.
This helps me get to know you + your needs before we start a conversation!
If I’m available for your date, we’ll schedule a phone call to go over your wants, needs and pricing.
We’ll also spend some time getting to know each other (gotta make sure you vibe with your photographer!)
On our call, I’ll ask questions that will help you choose what to include in your wedding collection (ex: hours of coverage needed or adding a 2nd shooter.)
From there, you can choose the collection you want!
Once you choose your collection, I’ll send a digital contract and retainer your way. After you sign your contract and pay your retainer, your date is locked in!
Straightforward and efficient (just like the rest of our time together will be.)
If you’re ready to move forward after our consult (um YAY), all that’s left is for you and your fiance to sign your digital contract, pay your retainer, and TREAT YO’ SELF to a drink because we are good to go!
Believe it or not, you’re getting way more than just photos of your wedding day! Every wedding collection includes:
– Custom timeline creation
– 48 sneak peeks (enjoy them on your honeymoon!)
– Access to all my planning resources
– Retouched high-res + web-sized images
– Online gallery to share, download and print
– Printing rights for you + your family
Yaaaaaas, I love it! Once you inquire I’ll put together some estimates for travel that we can review during our consultation, that way you know what everything costs on the front end (because we all hate those unexpected expenses!). If I’m travelling out of state, usually I require airfare, a rental car and a hotel for 2 nights.
If you’re ready to lock in your wedding date, you’ll need to pay your flat fee retainer of $1300. This locks in your date, gives you access to a plethora of planning resources and covers the time we’ll spend mapping out details like your wedding timeline! The remaining payment is due 30 days prior to your wedding date and will cover the actual shooting + post-processing of your gallery. You can totally break this up into a few different (or several) payments.
Payments can be made via credit/debit card or bank transfer through my client portal (it’s super easy and you can manage it all from your phone!). If you would prefer to pay via check, that works too!
Oh gosh, this is a personal nightmare of mine (my husband’s “worst case scenario” way of thinking is definitely rubbing off on me!). Buuuut don’t worry, I’ve got this specific scenario covered in my contract to make sure you’re taken care of! It states that if I can’t be there (I’d have to be on my actual deathbed), then I would send an equally skilled photographer that you approve of to shoot your wedding. And I would manage the editing so that your final photos look consistent with the style you booked me for.
P.S. I’ve shot over 100 weddings to date and have never missed one (grateful for that strong immune system), so this is a super unlikely scenario.
Of course every image gets edited! That’s a big part of what you’re paying for because of how time-consuming it is. Every image gets reviewed + sorted to make sure only the best ones end up in your final gallery. All sorted images will be edited, which includes color/lighting adjustments, blemish removal, straightening/cropping and creating black and white images.
I don’t offer in-depth retouching for Photoshop, but if it ends up being something you can’t live without, I can outsource this service and bill you at an hourly rate. Things like blemish/scar removal are absolutely included in my standard editing, but cosmetic changes (like removing double chips or thinning arms) are not. Besides, my goal is to always get flattering images of you IN CAMERA.
