Wedding Welcome Guide By JMEG PHoTOGRAPHY

Hi Friend!

Congratulations on your engagement! I am so happy you're here! I hope to answer any and all questions you have in this guide! If for some reason your question is not answered, please feel free to reach out so we can discuss it!

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, Friend! I'm Megan, but my friends call me Meg!

I believe the best experiences come from someone you can connect with, so before I get to know you, I'd love to share a little about myself so you can feel assured that we're a good fit!

When I am not pouring my heart into my work, you can find me anywhere outdoors, hanging out in a coffee shop, or nuzzled on the couch snuggling with my son. I enjoy travel, cheesecake, pine trees, kittens, sleep, coffee, and above all family time. My happy place includes waking up early, wrapped in a cozy blanket with a fresh cup of coffee to watch the sunrise (preferably by a lake or in the mountains). I have a soft spot for outdoor, small intimate concerts, morning hikes, and kayaking.

I would be honored to document this milestone of your life. Don’t hold back, you only get this moment once. You be you, I’ll be me. Let’s create something real.

WHY JMEG PHOTOGRAPHY?

Because you deserve the best. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. After the cake is eaten, and the party is over, you'll be left with two things: your partner, and photographs. Those photographs will be one of the few tangible things you'll have to look back on, and I do not take that lightly.

I am inspired by romance, intimacy, and nature. I seek to capture the true expressions and emotions between couples in the great outdoors, giving you an end-product that is real and authentic.

Frequently asked questions

What sets you apart from other photographers? I am one of the most emotional people you'll ever meet. What this means is, I am emotionally connected to you as people, and to your wedding day as a whole. I invest my whole heart into ensuring everything goes smoothly for you. This connection allows me to see things that others may over look; the unposed, in-between moments. I love to have fun and encourage you to be playful and relaxed while interacting with your loved ones on your wedding day! I use natural lighting as often as possible. Instead of being intrusive, I allow my couples to engage with one another as they would on a regular day, and provide guided posing as needed.

I offer a full-service experience, including a timeline consultation, and a viewing + ordering appointment to help you choose the photographs you’d like to display in your home.

How many photographers will be there at our wedding? That will depend upon your wedding day needs and desires, but I typically prefer to have two.

Do you photograph Elopements? Of course! Depending on availability and the number of hours you have set aside for photography, I have special rates for intimate weddings and elopements. I love the intimate setting created between a couple as they exchange vows in an alternative fashion. *Contact me to receive additional information on my elopement collections!

I'm not located in Rochester, do you travel at all? Yes, I absolutely love to travel! I have an adorable little dependent, so I'd need some notice to get everything in order, but if there's a special location you're set on, nothing will deter me from joining you. There will be an additional fee to cover travel expenses and this will vary, depending on where you go and the time of year.

What is your shooting style? I love to be both interactive and discrete throughout the day. I love meeting your families and interacting to ensure everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera. I teach all of my couples how to pose, model and interact throughout their engagement session, so they are naturals on the wedding day and don't need quite as much interaction from me.

Do I have to order prints through you? You don't have to, but I appreciate it so much when you do! The complete digital gallery is included with all wedding collections, and the print release allows you to print wherever you'd like. However, I do encourage printing through me, as it's the only way I can guarantee the quality and color consistency of the images is when you order your prints through me. Also, as a bonus, when you order prints through me, you are supporting my business.

You and wedding guests will receive a 50% discount on gift prints for the first 30 days after your gallery is delivered. Your guests will be able to make any, and all print purchases directly from your online gallery and have their orders shipped right to their door! That way, you don't have to take on any added stress by being the middle man.

How long does it take to get my images back? You will receive your images at your viewing and ordering appointment which will take place 4-6 weeks after your wedding date. This is where you will see your images for the first time. Products do take an additional 3-5 weeks to be delivered.

What equipment do you use? I love my Canons! I always carry the 5D Mark 3, as well as a variety of lenses. Most wedding days, I am equipped with: 50mm 1.2, 35 mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8, 24-70mm 2.8, and the 70-200mm 2.8.

Will 8 hours be enough? I am often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is YES! Our main goal right now is securing and saving your wedding date. You can always add additional coverage as we finalize your timeline if needed.

How do we reserve our wedding date? Once you've decided you'd like to move forward with booking, I will send you a proposal, contract and invoice. You can save your date by accepting the proposal, signing your contract and providing a 50% retainer.

Once you book your wedding date and the retainer is paid, I will send you a detailed questionnaire and welcome packet. I want you to be as prepared as possible to have a fun, relaxed wedding photography experience!
