Wedding Welcome Guide Andrea King photography

Hello Lovebirds! 

Welcome!! Congratulations on your engagement! As someone who has been married for over a decade I know how excited you are for this new chapter in your life. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and get comfortable so you can read all about what I offer to my clients.

My name is Andrea and I'm the sole owner of Andrea King Photography. I currently reside outside of Memphis, TN with my husband, son, and our two rescue dogs. I offer my services in the Mid-South and beyond, so this means that I am available for travel and destination weddings. I'm so thrilled that you're looking into my services to capture your upcoming wedding or engagement! As you look through this welcome guide you'll learn more about how I run my business, what to expect from me during your e-session, bridal, your big day, and get a look into what makes me who I am!

Why Andrea King Photography?

Booking a wedding photographer is a really, really important decision that you shouldn't take lightly. In fact I believe that choosing a photographer is probably the most important decision you will make regarding your wedding day. These are moments that are going to be captured and adored for years to come. They will be displayed on your walls and given to your family members. They should not only be images that you love, but also images that represent you as a couple and tell your story.

First and foremost, I believe that you should book a wedding photographer who captures the types of images that speak to you. In addition, I believe that the wedding photographer you choose should be someone who you enjoy spending time with, someone you can laugh with. You should enjoy their company! After all, you're going to spend a lot of time with that person on your big day, you'll be taking direction from them and counting on them to tell you what to do! They're basically going to be your shadow!

If you love the images you see on my website and in this welcome packet, that's just one reason why you should book with me. Another reason? You dig me and my personality. Just know that during your wedding day I try my hardest to put your mind at ease and let you enjoy your day. I'm a stickler for the details- making sure your hair is in place, your makeup is perfect, and your dress is smooth and flowing beautifully. I strive to tell your story and capture candid moments that sometimes go unnoticed, but are so sweet to remember. So many times during reveals my brides gasp and exclaim they didn't know that I captured a sweet moment.

The greatest compliment that is given to me is being referred to the friends and family of my clients. I love knowing that I take away a friendship with my brides. I speak to them regularly on social media, keep up with their journeys, and even photograph their family as it happily expands in the coming years.

Your Engagement Session

Before I get into the details regarding my wedding photography services, I first want to fill you in on my engagement sessions! All of my wedding packages actually include a complimentary engagement session. I offer this to my clients because it's a great chance for us to get to know each other a little better while capturing images that you will love and that will showcase your love for each other. These sessions also give you a chance to show off that gorgeous ring a little bit more and get nice and close with your fiancé. They are completely customized based on the couple and what is important to them. Together we meet and decide on a location and discuss wardrobe options. I take pride in the fact that most of the men walk away from my engagement sessions laughing and saying that "it wasn't as bad as they thought it would be" and that's because I believe these things should be fun and not stressful!

The location and outfits

I believe that you should look at your engagement photos and the images should encompass everything you are as a couple. I create sessions with my clients that tell their story. The location could be on a rooftop downtown or in the Ozark Mountains. This is why for a small additional fee I offer travel sessions. A lot of my clients take vacations together or go on adventures. Their Facebook and Instagram feeds are littered with images of them exploring together. I've had requests to travel to waterfalls a few hours away or to mountains on the other side of the state. I say- let's do it! Have some fun while capturing your save the date cards! Know you'll have photos where everyone will look at them and say- oh my goodness, that is so them!

Regarding what you wear, I always say to wear what you feel comfortable in. As we customize your session- including the location, time of day, and small details, I'll provide you with tips and advice on how to dress for your shoot. I have many clients text me photos of different outfits and ask advice. I also charge a small fee and can style you based on personality and what you like. And, of course, you can always bring a few different outfits for the shoot.

I'm also happy to provide extras and styling to my couples for an additional cost. Extras and styling may include but are not limited to- outfit shopping, use of antique furniture, tables and chairs (some may be custom built for the session), table placings and silverware, etc. These extras give your session a more editorial and styled look and take time to plan and set up. However, the final product is amazing and will create images for my clients to cherish.

As I mentioned above all of my wedding packages come with an engagement session. If you want to just have me do your engagement photos I charge $450 for the session. That includes two hours of time, 3 outfit changes, and 15-20 digital photos from your session with printing rights.

Your Bridal Session

The only package that comes with a complimentary bridal session is my Deluxe package. My clients have the option to add on a bridal session for $250 and will receive 15-20 beautifully edited digital images. Bridals are such an important stop on the journey to getting married. Too often brides don’t think that they need a session only devoted to them getting their pictures taken in their dress. What they don’t realize is how much more it is than just that.

A bridal session is a test run for your big day. It’s the one chance that you have to get your hair and your makeup done, put on your dress with your shoes, see how comfortable you’ll be for the wedding, and how everything will photograph. It’ll give you a chance to change anything that you don’t like instead of waiting until your wedding day.

It’s also important because on your wedding day you will be rushed. Too many times my clients want to rush through formal photos because guests get antsy and start to leave the reception early, or don’t want to stay. So their time is cut short for formals and almost no bridals are taken that day. It’s sad because brides have no pictures of themselves alone and in their wedding dress. There’s none to show their kids, none to hang on the wall, or give a copy to their husband so that he can keep it on his desk at work.

Bridals sessions are usually done around 6 weeks prior to the wedding and take 2 weeks to edit and deliver to the client. Travel is also something that is offered for a small add on fee. This process is something that is so special. I always tell clients to get the bridal! Indulge! You won’t regret it, I promise!

Wedding Day Coverage

The coverage you get from Andrea King Photography on your wedding day depends on the package you choose. Every package, though, includes coverage of your actual wedding day (ceremony and reception) with me, Andrea, as your photographer. The packages are for consecutive coverage and cannot be split into sections for different parts of your day.

For my larger packages I offer a second shooter option to help me capture more of the details of your big day. More shooters means more images, so that's always good. I offer specialty add-ons such as rehearsal dinner coverage, day after formal photos, trash the dress, and bridal boudoir.

No matter what package or add-ons you select, the photos from your wedding day will be beautiful. I take both journalistic/lifestyle and candid images and also posed shots. From the moment you secure your date with me, we'll work together to make sure every single image you want is captured on your big day.

I create a timeline for the day and send it to my couple two weeks prior to your big day. I have found that this helps with the general flow of the day as well as making it easier so that family members and wedding party members know where they need to be. It is also a big comfort to my clients to see their big day laid out in front of them and know that their wedding day will be as smooth and efficient as possible.

Payment Plans

A non-refundable retainer of 35% of your package is due in full in order to secure your wedding date with me. Payment plans for the remainder of your balance are made available to my clients through me. I electronically invoice clients on the 1st of the month and accept PayPal Credit, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.
