learn about the process

Congratulations, your Engaged! The next part of your love story has begun! I believe that developing a strong bond with my couples is the most important thing. I want to help support and love on you through this next part of your story. I'm here to help make your big day go seamlessly and to capture all the parts of your love story!


why choose me?

the details

When you first inquire I will send you a guide with pricing and answers to common questions. More importantly, I want to learn more about you and your love story! I'll ask you to share a little bit about how you met, the proposal, and your wedding plans!

We then will set up a phone call or skype call so I can share a bit more about me and how I work, as well as answer any questions you may have!

initial CONSULT

You have decided that I am the perfect fit for you! YAY!! Once you let me know that you'd love for me to tell your story, I will do a happy dance (HAHA!) then prep your contract and invoice. I will send them both your way and once they are complete, they come back to me for my signature. You then receive a finalized copy for your records and WE ARE OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL!! Pop the bubbly!! 

ready to book

Once we're officially official, it's time to plan your engagement session!! EEK! I will send you my calendar and you can select & book the best day for you around your schedule right through the calendar! I will also send a questionnaire that helps me figure out great locations to recommend to you for the session. I'll then send you my ideas and we'll pick the best spot! I'll send you information on how to choose your outfits (I always get this question!!) and things to remember for your session. Then, we'll shoot the session and have SO MUCH fun getting to know each other!!

Engagement Session

As I share with potential couples, I am a HUGE planner! I LOVE putting in time throughout the year leading up to the wedding day with my couples to ensure that everything goes perfectly. I want my couples to be able to trust 1000% that I will deliver everything and more that they are expecting. Around 5 months prior to the wedding I send a questionnaire and use that to create my couples custom day of timeline for their big day! I also send a questionnaire about 2 months prior that asks all kinds of goodies on details for the day and for names for the family formals! 

Wedding Prep

The day is here!!! SO EXCITING!! I arrive with my second shooter and we are SO excited! It's time to get ya'll married!! 

After the big day, I always share a sneak peek of images with my couples... I know how excited you are to see and share some of those images with your family & friends!

Your wedding day!

4-6 weeks after the wedding you will receive your finally gallery of all of your beautiful images!! YAY!! You will then download all of your full resolution images and are able to send the gallery to family & friends for them to download as well! You can print them anywhere you please or even order prints directly from Millers Printing Lab through your gallery (they are amazing!!).

If you ordered an album you will be sent information on how to make your album selections. I will then create the album and send you a proof for approval prior to ordering!
