Please view our portfolio and talk to us to see if we are the best fit for your photography vision, we are here to answer questions and chat about your ideas.

YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Engagement Sessions are complimentary and included in our Collections. Typically we shoot for 1-2 hours depending on locations. It’s fun to include a couple of locations that you both love and a couple of outfit changes. If you have a themed engagement session in mind that is more involved, it takes more planning, plus commitment on both parts, but are loads of fun and you will have amazing portraits resulting from these types of sessions. Portraits will be a great way to reflect the two of you, If you are more laid back, no worries we will show just how beautiful that can be. Come comfortably dressed in the clothing style you would typically wear, from jeans to dressy or both, bring clothing that reflects your style with pop of subtle color. And don't forget accessories! These are special portraits celebrating your engagement and most of our couples choose images from this session for their Save the Date Announcements. We have beautiful Save the Date card designs for you to choose from. Printing is an additional cost, not included in your collection.

LETS EXPLORE

I always love to hear what you and your fiancé do for fun. Do you travel often? Do you enjoy hiking or biking? What's your favorite coffee shop? Are you wine enthusiasts. These questions help me determine what locations I can suggest! I love adventures so we can head out to the city for a beach look or head out to St Helena for a romantic get away. Let's be the awkward people in the coffee shop doing an intimate session enjoying some great coffee. I mean the possibilities are endless!! But the best part is that I am getting to know you both, I know your likes and dislikes, I know what makes you smile. And when I am photographing your wedding I know I am capturing the most authentic you.

LOOKING YOUR BEST & KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT

Think of it as a date night to the best place in town, would you have your makeup done maybe even your hair. But most of all what will you wear? I've got a a few suggestions that will make this process so easy that you will have fun planing.

• When it comes to being comfortable in the cloths you pick be sure to be kind to yourself, we are our biggest critics and you will notice even the tiniest of imperfection that I will never see. This often shows in every portrait we take, so keep in mind to absolutely love your clothing selections.

• Take into consideration where we are headed, If we decide to go into the valley I would suggest having a causal outfit with jeans and a dress-y top, as a second outfit wear something more formal like a dress and a button up. Are we headed to the cozy coffee shop? depending on the time of year of course, I would suggest your favorite slouchy sweater and jeans with fab shoes! (yes I said fab) By the way Slouchy sweaters can look amazing at a beach location as well, Just don't forget to use NEUTRAL colors. And when all else fails Pinterest is your friend for outfit inspiration!

• Natural interaction with each other make the best stories. From the way he hold your hand, to the way he looks at your smile and holds you close. These are the portraits that will be timeless and romantic, with minimal posing and more smiles than ever. Of course I will guide you and tell you to whisper something in his ear, or hold him tighter, don't worry you will know where to place your hands and feet!!

You will see that the lost important part of spending this time together will help you get to know me as your photographer and It will also help me get to know the love you have for each other and by having fun and just being yourselves.

THE PROCES

1 Year prior to your Wedding: Meet, talk to and book your photographer. Most Wedding Photographers book a year in advance, so make sure to shop for your photographer in plenty of time. Payment - At time of booking you are required to make a payment of a 25% retainer on your Wedding package and Final payment 30 days prior to your Wedding date.

6-12 Months prior to your Wedding: Shoot your engagement session, that way you have plenty of time to send out your Save the Date Announcements.

2 Weeks prior to your Wedding, we’ll confirm the details of your wedding and address any changes or questions. We will review your timeline and make sure we have plenty of time for all of your family formals as well as a sweet sunset session for you and your husband.

Wedding Day, we’ll be at your confirmed getting ready location and follow you throughout the day capturing all the beautiful moments of your day.

After your Wedding, typically 1 day to 1 week from the date of your Wedding you’ll see Sneak Peeks of a few images.

4-6 Weeks after your Wedding we’ll have an in-person viewing of your images and choose the images you want for your wall prints and album.

8 Weeks after your Wedding I’ll deliver your print products for you to enjoy and share.

YOUR WEDDING DAY

On your wedding day all I want you to worry about is enjoying your day. It took you almost a year to plan all of the details to such a special event and you deserve to love on your new husband and enjoy the party with your friends and family. But While you enjoy yourself I will be taking care of the rest.

• Photographing all of your details from floral, to jewelry, shoes and my favorite of all your dress and tux.

• Capturing all of the laughs and tears through the getting ready process.

• This is where we can fit in our first look with your groom, and capture emotions that you never felt before. We can also do portraits of your bridal party if you opt. out of doing a first look. - *See bellow to the benefits of a first look

• Your ceremony. The time to say I do has come, and I cant promise I wont cry when you recite your vows to each other, but I will be there to capture all of the details of your ceremony

• Formal portraits typically follow right after the ceremony. I will do a variation of parents, grandparents, siblings, and a selected few of your chosen aunts and uncles. If we didn't do a first look we will do the joint bridal party, and sneak off to the sunset and do your Mr & Mrs portraits, in time to get you back for cocktail hour. ( I suggest blocking off 1-2 hours for this section)

• Reception is the most anticipated part after your ceremony, enjoy is while I follow along capturing all of your events through the nigh

• Grand exit, Have you through about one? If you did I'd love to capture your goodbyes as you head off to your honey moon. Some are as elaborate as a sparkler exit but you can be as creative as you like.

Why you should do a first look

Your First Look is an amazing part of your day! If you are not sure about this tradition, the following will explain why it would be a romantic addition to your wedding day celebration that not only adds to the experience but also reduces stress.

Please note that I would never want any of my couples to feel pressured to go with this option. However, I do want to make sure that I share all of the benefits of a first look because there is a reason 90% of my couples LOVE IT!!

I have confessed my deep love for first looks before and I will do it time and time again. However, not everyone is aware of how beautiful this moment can be because they get caught up in how ”non-traditional” Well let me tell you, this reaction is even more intimate and I can promise you that his reaction as you walk down the aisle will be even more meaningful and emotional as you are one step closer to becoming husband and wife.

40% MORE PORTRAITS

You're investing a lot into your wedding photography. With a first look, you'll receive 40% more portraits of the two of you and those are the images you will decorate your first home with. With the first look, you make the most of your investment.

ENJOY THE SURPRISE FREELY

You will actually get to have the intimate time on your wedding day with your husband/wife. Most brides don't realize that when you come down the aisle and totally shock him with your gorgeous self, he can't even tell how amazing you look. he can't touch you embrace you or even speak to you. You have to wait until 30 minutes later when the ceremony is over for him to reach out and tell you how amazing you look. And after 30 minutes of the ceremony the reaction isn't the same as the initial glance. First looks allow you to be together and alone on your wedding day. And this may be the only time you get to spend together for the entire day. You can cry, laugh and cry some more. This will put you in the mood for perfectly romantic portraits. Normally portraits are a little rushed after family formals and can be hard to really get back into that lovey dove mood, especially with friends and family around. When you have just shared your first look you are ready to love on each other and I will always capture some super sweet images during those moments.

EXTEND YOUR WEDDING DAY

First looks also allow you to extend your wedding day. Normally your wedding day would start when you walk down the aisle, once the ceremony ends you would rush through formal portraits so that you’re not late for introductions to your reception. With the first look your wedding day is extended by almost 3 hours!! Instead of rushing through formals and bridals you actually get to have fun and hang out with your friends on your wedding day back in cocktail hour.

DETAILS YOU SHOULD KNOW

YOUR IDEAS MATTER

All the work and love you’ve put into your wedding planning, your dress, his suite, invitations, shoes, jewelry, florals, table decor matter to your photographers. Please make sure we are aware of and have access to everything that makes your wedding so uniquely you so that we can capture all that specialness.

Collecting ideas for your Wedding Images is great, please remember that we do not copy other photographers work. You chose to trust us with your Wedding Photography because you love our work. That being said, we are excited to see the images you love and happy to work with you to ensure your images are everything you envision.

WEDDING DAY TIMELINE

Please include a proper amount of time for photography while planning your timeline to ensure your day goes smoothly. It will lessen your stress if everyone is on the same page with the planning.

WEDDING DAY COUPLE AND FAMILY PORTRAITS

It’s important that your photographer knows your must have portrait and family portraits, but please leave the rest of your wedding to us, you hired us because we are professional and highly skilled, your job is to enjoy your day, not stress over your wedding images. Family portraits can be a bit chaotic, it’s best to make a list of people for each of the must have photo’s and have someone available to round everyone up at the given time so it happens as planned and no one gets missed.

WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG

The whole process for your images takes six to eight weeks from the day of your wedding. We take an incredible amount of images on your wedding day, which means we need to go through every image and decide what stays and what goes, we remove duplicates, blurred/out of focus and unflattering images. We’re good but these types of images happen. Then we go through our editing process to make sure that every image you receive is properly exposed, color corrected and if needed lightly retouched to make them as perfect as possible. Then we meet with you to help you choose your album and prints, ship the info off to our print lab and finally deliver to you. Once the editing process is complete we also upload to your private viewing gallery.
