How exciting is it that in less than three months, you'll be able to say "I marry the love of my life THIS year"?!
You've been waiting for that day your whole life. Planning it out with your best friend underneath the covers when you were really supposed to be sleeping. Dreaming about it when you had your first crush, and wondering if he was the one. Going to weddings and gazing longingly at the miles of lace and tulle as the bride floated down the aisle toward her beloved.
And now, it's your turn.
Which means you're going to want someone to capture every moment of that perfect day that you have dreamt about for years, and have now spent countless hours planning for!
I always start my brides off with a free, no obligation consultation at Starbucks, which also includes me treating you to coffee or tea or whatever your drink of choice is! (But if anybody ever suggested meeting at a frozen yogurt parlor, I definitely would not say no.)
If you decide to book me, I promise I will be there every step of the way. Photographing a wedding isn't just about that day, it's about all the days leading up to it. I'm never more than a phone call or text away, and am more than happy to be a person you can bounce ideas off of!
The day of the wedding always finds me at the venue a little early, because no bride needs to be worried about where her photographer is! Throughout the whole wedding day, I strive to capture every moment in non-obtrusive ways, and to make everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. One bride says // She is quick and always smiling! She has a way of always helping you feel natural and charming! She's just plain amazing!
And after the wedding? Well, my promise to be there every step of the way doesn't end when the last photo is taken as you drive off into the sunset with your new husband! I stay in close communication with you over the next few weeks as I personally edit each and every one of your photos. Lots of sneak peeks are shared, and there is a very good chance you'll get random texts from me gushing about what a gorgeous couple you and your new husband make, just cause I'm sappy like that.
The photos are ready within 4 to 5 weeks, although a lot of times it's much sooner than that! Not only will you receive the images on a personalized USB drive, but they will also be uploaded to an online gallery for easy sharing. Alongside of those two ways to view your photos, I included several special little gifts for you and your husband (one that is handmade by yours truly). This is just my way of saying a big ole THANK YOU for allowing me to be part of such a special time in your life.
So, why me? Because I won't just be your wedding photographer. I will be your friend.
