Lovely Photos with Ease: My Approach to Wedding Photography

My photography business is centered around great service and I have been honored to receive hundreds of excellent reviews and many national awards. I think this is because I focus my service on communication with my couples, lots of preparation and research, a strong work ethic and dedication to my craft. It also helps that I absolutely LOVE MY JOB!

Every step of the way I work to keep your experience stress-free and enjoyable.

My style is classic and timeless. I like to do a mix of portrait and candid photo-journalistic shots, with a focus on real emotion and candid moments. My goal is to make everything as easy for you as possible while capturing every special moment in an artistic and beautiful way. I also think having lots of variety is important. For example, for the couple’s portraits, you will receive some that are more romantic, some that are more editorial, some that are fun, and some that are classic. 

Here are a few details about the process:

Before our consultation: I will look up the sunset time on your wedding day to see how it might affect your schedule. I research your venue online to see other weddings that have taken place there and how particular areas will look in photographs. 

During our consultation: I love to hear about the two of you! Your backgrounds, how you met, the proposal and your plans for your wedding day. I will also tell you a little bit about myself and my style and answer any of your questions.
Most couples tell me they are either a bit camera shy and feel like they don’t know what to do or don’t like to have their photograph taken. It’s ok! I’ve got you! You shouldn’t know what to do. I will guide you through every step of the way and help you feel comfortable and, hopefully, even, have fun!

Engagement photos: I highly recommend planning an engagement session so that we are able to work together before the wedding day. This can be fun and casual and actually brings an ease to your wedding day. When I am shooting couple’s portraits it will be so much more comfortable because you will already be familiar with my direction and posing and know what to expect. 

Before the wedding day: I will help you plan your schedule to make the most of your photography and make the most of your time. I have tips for how we can maximize all the group portraits and fit special photos into your timeline, like sunset or nighttime portraits. When the schedule is planned out the best way it can be, most of my couples are able to enjoy a large portion of their cocktail hour!
I will also ask you lots of questions to make sure all goes smoothly–everything from any concerns you have about looking your best in your photos to making sure I understand any family sensitivities. 

On the wedding day: I’m here for you. I arrive early to scout out the venue and best photo locations. I am always thinking about your timeline and getting the best shots I can, but I am also happy to grab you a water, carry your bouquet and help in any way I can.

Editing your photos: My editing style is also very natural and classic with a focus on bright images and true-to-life color. I edit every photo for light, color, contrast and cropping. I also do minor retouching such as removing exit signs from the background of your first dance. 

Delivery: I deliver a sneak peek the day after your wedding, a blog post with around 30 images in 2-3 weeks and your full gallery of photos within 5 weeks. All of your high-resolution digital images will be delivered through a password protected online gallery. You will be able to download and print images directly from your online gallery. I typically deliver around 600-800 images for an 8-hour wedding day.

Throughout the year: I follow and take classes from other wedding industry leaders to stay sharp, observe new trends and learn new techniques for my business.
