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.
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.
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.
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.
Our full day collection Includes a complimentary 90 minute engagement session. This collection will cover up to 10 continuous hours of your wedding with two lead photographers. All of your images professionally enhanced on a heirloom USB, with high-resolution images ready to print and share with friends and family.

Having two photographers for your wedding is the best decision you can make. While I will stay by my brides side the entire day, my second shooter (My darling husband or my best friend who have been shooting by my side for 2 years now) will cover the grooms men. My team and I work seamlessly, we know where to be when we need to be and always focus on the details of the day.
