Planning your wedding is a huge project. Trust me; I've been there. Let me handle taking your beautiful wedding day photos so there's one less thing for you to worry about. I want to help make your day perfect and develop a photography plan together that will keep everything running smoothly, while still capturing all of your precious moments.
If you are local to the Portland metro area, I would love to meet over coffee and tea and spend some time getting to know you and your love story. To get an idea of what my wedding photography process looks like, you can explore my step-by-step below.
There's nothing like a wedding, and you'll only have once shot to capture yours with timeless photos.
If you are local, I love to meet over coffee or tea and spend some time getting to know you and your unique love story. We chat about wedding plans, my process, and I answer any questions you have. If I seem like a good fit, we move on to the booking process.
1. Get in touch
Once you’ve decided I’m the right fit for you, I’ll send you a booking package which includes your package to review and a link to pay your 25% deposit. After that, your date is officially saved! It’s time to get started.
2. Save Your Date
Now it’s time to have fun! After you’ve booked, we’ll schedule your engagement session, and don’t worry, we’ll guide you through everything. You’ll feel so comfortable with my guidance and prompts that you’ll be a posing pro by your wedding day!
Bonus: You'll be sent your online gallery of images within 2 weeks to download and share however you wish.
3. Engagement Photo Session
Once we’re eight weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! I’ll send out a questionnaire that we’ll use to create a custom timeline to ensure we capture every meaningful moment. Solidifying your timeline will not only make sure we have enough time to photograph all of the important parts of your day, it’s a big help for your other vendors, too!
4. Timeline Planning
Your wedding day has arrived! Now it is time to just enjoy yourselves and soak it in as my second shooter and I capture it all.
We'll plan this with you far in advance, but we'll typically arrive at the bride and groom's respective getting ready locations around 10 or 11 AM. From then on, we'll be with you for the rest of the day capturing EVERYTHING.
Fun fact: You'll probably spend more time with us on your wedding day than any one else (since we start so early, you'll likely see us more than your future spouse!). That's why it's so important for to make sure we're going to love working together.
5. The Big Day
After your wedding day, you'll receive an online gallery full of your edited photos to download, print, and share!
No one wants to wait months and months for their wedding gallery (like I did), so I will be sure to deliver your gallery within 6 weeks of your wedding day. You will also receive a sneak peak within 48-72 hours!
All told, you'll end up with 75-100 photos per hour of photography time. Your wedding gallery will be available to download for 2 years, backed up for 5 years, and I also provide a flash drive of your full gallery as well. I can also help order prints and other heirloom artwork of your wedding photos. We'll chat about that when the time comes.
6. Gallery Delivered
Even though it was nearly 10 years ago, I still vividly remember both the joy and stress of planning my wedding. Trying to pull off your big day is hard enough to pull off, so I like to be upfront with all my prospective clients when it comes to budget and investment.
My wedding photography packages start at $3,200. This includes:
> Two professional photographers (myself and a second shooter)
> Full wedding day coverage starting at 8 hours (consecutive hours)
> 600+ edited high-resolution digital images
> My full-color 75-page Wedding Photography Experience guide
> One COMPLIMENTARY engagement session!
To secure you date and book me as your wedding photographer, a retainer fee of $1,000 and a signed contract are required.
