What Comes Before Forever?

Wedding planning can be tolling. My biggest goal with my bridal clients is to keep our relationship fuss-free. Since 2008, I have been photographing couples on their wedding day. When I say that I have this assignment mapped out, that is zero exaggeration. 

Before we make any concrete plans, I like to schedule a consultation with prospective wedding couples to see if we are compatible. Truly, this detail can enhance or derail your special day and if I am not the best fit I'll help you find a someone who is. 

Assuming we both swipe right, you will put down a deposit and sign a contract to hold your date. I then share some planning lists to help jumpstart photo planning. Yes... months in advance of your nuptials. This helps shape the day-of itinerary and shot lists so that your wedding remains as relaxed as possible. 

Engagement photo and video sessions are now available a la carte. Learn more in the pricing below. 

Some things to think about before your consultation:

  • are you on a wellness journey that may cause you to look different on your wedding? 

  • what features do you like most about yourself or significant other?

  • do you have any photo insecurities to convey?

  • if you are very committed to couple's photos what are you willing to forfeit if your timeline gets tight?

  • how do you want to be perceived on your wedding day?

  • do you like more of a natural-light look or do you want to use flash for a bolder look in the bulk of your photos?
