If you're looking for someone who creates beautiful, photojournalistic images, is fantastic at making you, your guests and bridal party comfortable, is super easy to work with and really loves their job, then YOU'VE FOUND ME!
STEP ONE: VIEW MY WEBSITE
You're here on my website, so you're already killing it! If you've read everything and you're ready to chat with me, then we can start with an email or phone call and we'll eventually hop on Zoom and get to know each other! You can tell me about you and your partner's love story and I can crack a terrible dad joke or two.
STEP TWO: YOU ENJOYED MY WITTY REPARTEE, SO NOW WE MEET UP!
(assuming pandemic rules allow)
Many clients know from our very first conversation that I'm the photographer for them, but if you're not quite there yet, I am more than happy to talk again, especially face to face! The better we know each other, the easier it will be for me to create stunning images for you and the person you love, and the more comfortable you'll be when it comes time to jump in front of the camera.
STEP THREE: OK, ENOUGH OF ALL THIS CHIT CHAT. WE WANNA BOOK YOU!
You love me, you really love me! You're ready to give me thousands of dollars! YAY! Seriously, though, I'm happy and thankful you trust me on one of the most important days in your lives. We're going to make such a good team and by paying your first fee and signing a contract, you'll be locked in my calendar...your date will be yours and yours alone! High five!
STEP FOUR: WHO'S READY FOR AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION? YOU ARE!!!
Engagement sessions are so exciting. You get all prettied up, rock your favorite stylish outfits and I capture it all for the world to remember. Pick a place with sentimental value or a place that looks gorgeous to you, or we can figure out a place together! You can use these images for save-the-dates, invites, or just to show off on social media.
STEP FIVE: IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIG DAY, SO LET'S MEET UP AGAIN
Are you tired of seeing me yet? NEVER! I'm too damned pretty! This meeting is where we wrap up all the final details, the timeline, the must-have shots, etc. Any last minute changes can be discussed and we can put your mind at ease if you have any final questions or concerns.
STEP SIX: OMG, OMG, IT'S YOUR BIG DAY!!!
There will be so many of us rooting for you to win today, and when it comes to vendors, I'll be your biggest hype man! All your planning, all your time and effort, every choice you've made...it's all in place. No more stress, just fun (OK, maybe a tiny bit of stress, lol). I'll be there at your side, capturing every moment I can, big and small. Fun side note: the photo up above is me capturing the photo you saw at the start of this page!
STEP EIGHT: YOU MIGHT BE THINKING "NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT FOREVER TO SEE OUR PHOTOS"...NOPE, YOUR PHOTOS ARE DONE ALREADY!
Heck yeah they are! I pride myself on a really quick turn around time. I try to make sure you have a sneak peek of some exciting shots within a few days after your wedding (gotta give those aunties something to titter about!), and in most cases, your full galleries will be sent to you within 3 weeks. How saucy am I? Pretty saucy.
STEP EIGHT: IT'S BEEN MONTHS SINCE OUR WEDDING...TELL ME THIS ISN'T THE END!
Alas, your big day has been relegated to the annals of history. The reveal of your gorgeous images is over. All the pomp and circumstance is a distant memory. Is that really it for us? ARE WE DESTINED TO NEVER SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN?
I sure hope not! I love it when my professional relationships turn into friendships, so maybe that'll be us! But if you're already missing my cute face, never fear - I'll be reaching out to you now and then post-wedding to check on you, see how life is, and remind you to get those milestone photo sessions like new babies, family portraits, business headshots, reunions, anniversaries, etc. :D
BTW, for all that money you're spending, it's not just my stellar company you'll get! Here are a few *extras* that come with booking me:
A 45 page, full-color bridal guide .pdf that features all kinds of useful information, including a sample photography timeline, tips and tricks, vendor information and a step-by-step 12 month planning timeline!
Treats! Who doesn't love treats!?
Peace of mind knowing you've hired a professional who genuinely loves what he does.
An autographed 5x7 of yours truly. Did I mention how pretty I am?
OK Namu, we didn't click that first booking link, but we're FOR SURE ready to book now! LET'S GO!!!!
And while you wait for me to get back to you, how about some free wedding resources? (this section under construction)
