How do you photograph weddings?
I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a guide to help you organizing your day, the best moments for the couple photos, the different lights... and it's really exciting for me to get to know you!! We currently offer all day coverage, from the beginning of your day until all the important reception festivities have taken place. We will be by your side, capturing every important moment along with every little detail that you have put into your special day! I do not believe in setting a time limit for a wedding. Our approach and goal is to create a natural, relaxed set of images that will tell your story of your wedding day.
Prior to booking, we will set up a free consultation where we will discuss all the details you have in mind and answer any questions you may have. It's important that our personalities mesh and that your comfortable with us. This meeting can take anywhere from an hour to two but don't worry.. I LOVE hearing all about your plans! This is your wedding, your dream day and I want to accommodate your needs as best as I can.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm proudly Northern Indiana based and yes I love to travel! I'm very limited to how many destination weddings I can do each year so If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come because I love to see different parts of the world and to travel!!
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all my favorite photos within 4- 8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints! You will also receive a flash drive with high-res images that you can feel free to develop as you please. You are able to order professional prints online through your gallery. These prints are created at a professional photo lab on high-end photo paper that will not change color over time and that promises color accuracy. Because these prints are very affordable (ranging from $5-$20) we recommend printing through your online gallery rather than downloading your images and having them printed elsewhere. If you were to have your images printed at Costco, Target, Walmart, etc…. we cannot guarantee that your colors and skin tones will be accurate. When you order prints online, they will be shipped directly to your home!
Things I wish all my clients knew
Details matter - the details of your wedding(invitations, dress, shoes, jewelry, florals, etc..) are what make your wedding unique and different. They are also things you spend a lot of time and hours working on, deciding on, and paying for. So make sure they are easily accessible and ready to be photographed on your wedding day.
Have your photographer eat when you do - nobody enjoys having their photo taken when they are eating so have your photographer eat at the same time you are to avoid that. We are hungry and we've been with you all day so we do like to eat dinner!! and cake!!
Invest in real flowers for the bridal bouquet, you can do fake florals for everything else but your bridal bouquet will be in over half of all the wedding images so it just looks so much prettier when they are real flowers!! Trust me!!
Because you don't invest in a wedding album for today... You invest in a wedding album for all your tomorrows...
One of these days down the road, you'll be pulling out your own wedding album and you'll find yourself laughing and crying with your own kids and grandchildren just as much as your parents did when you got married. Technology changes rapidly, but your memories are timeless. Jeff and I believe - without a doubt - that our images look their very best when printed in the pages of a wedding album, not because you can immediately enjoy and share the images with those you love - that is the amazing purpose of web media. Instead, we believe our images look their very best in print because, unlike web media, albums are built to last for generations.
