When it comes to photography, I’m not just another vendor. I genuinely enjoy connecting with my clients, understanding their dreams and aesthetic, and delivering exceptionally stunning photos from their big day. I look for authentic moments of emotion, and want your love and joy to be captured intentionally and remembered forever.
We’ll definitely get your standard portraits, fridge photos, family shots, and group takes. But also promise to deliver the rawness and realness from your wedding day to fill you to the brim with bliss for years to come. Have a few questions? Check out some of my answers below.
What is the whole process from engagements to wedding day like?
+ Engagements //
Engagement photos are the perfect chance to show off your love for each other! You can get professional shots to frame or use for save-the-dates, plus you and I get to work together before the big day. Taking engagements helps alleviate any nerves you might have about a camera following you around all day because, by then, we’ll be old pals.
These are just so much fun. This is your chance to dress up in your wedding gown, get dolled up, and take some photos that you and your husband will cherish forever. Bridals also help you visualize what you will look like before the actual wedding day, which is so exciting. These are taken about a month before the wedding.
+Wedding Day //
The big hoorah! Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and you deserve to commemorate and celebrate it with stunning images from the whole day. I’ll be there to capture every moment, from getting ready with your girlfriends to your husband’s face when he sees you, and every toast, whoop, and dance move in between.
+Two-mouth turnaround //
That’s right! Two months after your wedding, you’ll have your fully edited, super- gorgeous, tear- and laughter-inducing gallery of wedding photos. Plus, within 24 hours of your wedding, I’ll send you and your honey a sneak peek of eight to 10 photos from your day! These are yours to send to aunties or uncles who couldn’t make it and, of course, post all over Instagram. The important things! Hey, I get it.
Where are you located?
I call West, Texas, home, but I also shoot weddings in Waco and all over Texas. If you’re getting married outside of the Lonestar State, no problemo! I love to travel and shoot destination weddings.
How do my partner and I feel more comfortable (aka less awkward!) in front of the camera?
I want you to have fun and feel relaxed the whole time we work together! I’m not just snapping away on my camera willy-nilly. I pinky promise to let you know if a stray hair is askew or if any makeup is smudged. I’ll help with posing—where to look, whether to smile or look serious, how to walk the walk and talk the talk…and when to make out. I got you, friend!
What are the benefits for engagements?
Engagements give us both a leg up on your wedding day because we’ll already have met! I’ll understand what makes you feel comfortable, what gets your jitters out, and what helps you laugh, relax, and enjoy. Plus, you’ll have the chance to hang with me, too, which makes your wedding day less stressful since you already know the gal who’s going to follow you around all day! Good times, all around. Engagements are great to use for save-the-dates, invitations, or in frames at the rehearsal dinner or wedding itself.
Do I give RAW files?
Nope, those guys can’t be opened or printed. I deliver only the crème de la crème images from your exciting day. You’ll get a gallery of 500-plus photos, depending on the size of your wedding, amount of details, number of formal photos, and so on.
Do I travel?
Is the sky blue? YES! I adore traveling, and I love capturing your love story in fun and far-away places. I just ask that you cover my flight and lodging for three to four days, so that any required location scouting can be done.
Do you back up your images?
One hundred percent. I back up everything to a secure location as soon as I get home from events, plus I keep images on memory cards until I send ‘em off to you. Your day is safe with me!
Can I see one of your full wedding galleries?
Absolutely! Send me an inquiry and I’ll get you one to flip through.
How do you come up with a shot list?
I’ve worked with so many couples that I have a number of incredible shots inmind to get on your big day. Plus, I’ll be sure to get a list of group and family shots from you before the wedding, so we don’t miss Uncle Tom or Cousin Betty when it comes to group photos.
How do we make this official?
I require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer of half of the total price for your package. I can only hang on to your date once I’ve received both the contract and retainer. The remaining cost is due 30 days prior to the event date.
For portrait sessions, a contract and full payment are due when booking.
