Booked? What's Next?
So you've decided on your wedding collection, signed your contract, paid your deposit, and you're officially my couple - yay! The creative process is just getting started and I am SO excited to get to know both of you more and help you prepare for the best day of your life that will be here before you know it! Here is a brief description of what happens in between when you become an official #NDPbride all the way to designing your album together after your big day is in the past.
Who are you?
I like to get together for a quick coffee or appetizer (Starbucks is my worldwide office), if logistically we can (skype works too), so that we can totally put wedding photography aside and I can just get to know the two of you more. What you do, how you met, what your favorite breed of whale is - you know, the important things.
Engagement Session Hang Out
If you're choosing to do an engagement session (which I TOTALLY recommend), we will get this on the calendar earlier than later, and use it to 1. Have a blast and remember your engagement season through a killer day 2. Practice and get you used to having a camera in your face while you're all cuddled up 3. Educate you on what to put where, how to move consistently and not be posed but still look your best 4.Capture some beautiful images for you to remember your engagement season by, as well as use for save the dates!
Your engagement session will be edited and delivered to you in 1-2 weeks through an online gallery. From this gallery you can download all of your digital files, purchase prints and wall art, and share your gallery on social media. If you'd like, we can work together to design the perfect Save the Date for you to send out well in advance to your guests.
You'll receive your wedding questionnaire months before your wedding day so that I can have all of the details, contacts and things to know all in one place, in which I can also create a timeline from and stay in contact with your other vendors.
Once your questionnaire is complete, I will work through that information and create a sample timeline that works with the hours of coverage you have purchased with your collection. We will plan a time to meet up and go over everything and create a more solidified timeline. This helps in making sure everything is organized on your wedding day, we're covering all of your must have shots, and planning for appropraite lighting.
Pre Wedding Chats
We will chat 1-2 more times before the wedding to iron out final details, make sure that we both have everything we need, and get dang excited!
Best. Day. Evaaaaaaa!
Make sure you're checking my social media accounts for sneak peeks that might very well make their way on my pages in the following days.
4-8 weeks after your wedding, your gallery will completely edited and uploaded to another online gallery, where you can again view and download your gallery, share on social media, and purchase prints or wall art. This is also when your family and friends can use their 2 free prints credit!
I will create up to 50 spread layouts for you to go through and choose which to include in your wedding album. We can swap photos in and out, and customize it to your exact taste. After all, you're going to be looking at this album for years to come. Once your album is organized and the order is sent off, it will arrive at your door in the following days.
1 Year Later
Who's up for a 1 year anniversary session ;) ?!?
