What's in the edding Collection?
Your love story is unique to you, no one else has the same story. It started the day you met one another and it continues to grow every single day.
Imagine sitting down with your children or grandchildren many years from now. Telling them stories of your wedding day. Showing them the beautiful album that has become a family heirloom.
Your love story deserves to be shared with friends and family. I want to hear all the adorable little details like how you met, how you were proposed to, how you knew it was love, etc.
I love the way your eyes light up when you talk about your story!
It warms my heart.
Take a walk with me through the experience
Wedding Portrait Planning Session
We usually meet at the bride's home. It will last between an hour to two hours. This is a meeting of the minds to make sure we tailor these images perfectly to your needs.
Who's helping you plan your wedding? Your sister. aunt, mom, brother, uncle, friend, etc? Invite them! They know you well and they will be able to think of things that we may miss when we are making a plan.
We will talk about things like: are we doing a first look? Some brides don't want to see the groom before the wedding so we can have you two meet around a corner to hold hands; share some sweet words, or a prayer before the ceremony.
We plan things like what time I'm meeting up with the ladies getting ready and what time my second photographer is meeting up with the guys.
All of these questions and more will be answered in this planning session. It helps us get on the same page to make sure your wedding day is captured the way you've always dreamed.
After the wedding planning session, I will email you the plans so you don't have to try and keep up with everything. You have enough to worry about. Let me help you shed some stress.
My second photographer and I will attend the rehearsal so we can get to know your families. This helps them feel more comfortable with us on the wedding day so we can get those real smiles.
We also look at the lighting to figure out how to overcome any struggles. We plan where we will position ourselves as we watch the flow of the ceremony. It's all about being in the right place at the right time. We may do some detail shots as well of the tables and the venue.
After the rehearsal, I will email you to let you know that we are ready for the big day. I will include what times we are meeting with the guys and ladies so we are on the same track.
I keep this constant line of communication with you so that you have less to worry about. Be filled with excitement for your wedding day. Let us handle the rest.
It's your wedding day! Let the hair curling and the make-up perfecting begin. I will be with you from start to finish. My second photographer will be with the guys as they get ready.
This is a great time for images with mothers and daughters or sisters. The finishing touches like putting on the veil and buttoning up the dress are heartfelt moments as it's almost time to walk down the aisle.
After everyone is picture-ready, we will do the bridesmaid portraits with the bride. I will also get little detail shots of the bouquets, the rings, shoes, dresses, etc. My second photographer will be doing the same with the guys.
The Wedding Ceremony
During the wedding, we will both be working to capture the special moments of the ceremony.
For bridal portraits and bridal party portraits, we will sneak away for about 45min to an hour. This can be done before or after the ceremony.
Once you return, you will be announced at the reception and everyone gathers for dinner.
Between the dinner and the dancing, my second photographer will be available for family portraits. Then it's on to the festivities! The first dance, the father daughter dance, the mother son dance, etc.
After the wedding, I will email you to let you know your images are uploaded and safe. I will also schedule a reveal date with you. Generally, the images will be ready in 4 to 5 days. If you are on your honeymoon the week following the wedding, we can schedule it for when you return.
The Reveal Get-Together
That moment you've been waiting for has arrived! Remember those people that helped you in the planning session? Invite them to the reveal party!
I can bring some wine and cheese, beer and pretzels, or popcorn and soda. The images will be on a USB and Online so we can watch the story of your love on the big screen TV.
This is not a sales session! So you don't have to worry about the sales pitches. It's just reminiscing about your special day with family and friends.
I will take the time to show you how to access your online gallery, how to share it, and how to purchase extras from it when you are ready.
If you are curious about wall art, now is the time to ask questions. We can talk about sizes and see what would look best in your home. I'd be happy to help you find things like metal prints or wood prints.
After the reveal party, I will email you with a date to expect the wedding album. They can take up to two weeks to be completed and checked for quality.
This is my favorite part! I love, love, love bringing you these custom heirloom albums and watching your eyes light up. I know you will remember all the perfect moments from your wedding when you flip through the pages. I also know that there are stories to be told to future generations when you show them someday.
The story of your love is meant to be shared <3

Covid 19 Updates
As you know, Covid 19 has changed how the world interacts. Rest assured we are taking precautions to protect both your family and our own.
I pride myself on being a very personal photographer that enjoys sitting down with you to plan and to deliver images. However, during this time we are able to make exceptions when needed. Video calls are available for planning sessions to limit our exposure.
