First and foremost, you can expect a beautiful engagement and wedding gallery. That should be a no brainer! But there is so much more to 'hiring a wedding photographer' than that.
I don't want to be just another box checked off your list. I want to be there as an intentional choice. I put a lot of time and energy into each of my clients to make sure I can provide them all the best experience possible.
You can expect someone who wants to be there for you fully. Someone who knows you deserve to be celebrated. Someone who knows that you are SO excited to get to marry your best friend.
That's what I am here to provide for you. From booking, to engagement session, to planning your timeline, and especially the day of your wedding. I'll be there for ya!
And obviously, you can expect me to HYPE YOU THE HELL UP!!
"I know we’ll look back on our wedding photos for years to come and cherish them just as much as the first day they were delivered. Thank you Emma!!"
After you inquire with me, I'll send you over the whole shebang via my Pricing Guide. This breaks down all of my packages, what each includes, and goes over some FAQs! You'll also be able to see LOTS of sample galleries of REAL (yes 100% real) wedding days so you know exactly what you'd be getting in return!
Next, we'll set up an inquiry call to make sure we are a good fit for one another, and I'll be able to answer any lingering questions you may still have! If everything sounds good, and you are all set, we can get you officially on my books!
After booking, the fun begins! We can start to plan your engagement session! Then before you know it, it'll be time to start planning your timeline!
After that, it's wedding day and it's time for us to have THE BEST DAY EVER!
How do we pay you? Do you offer payment plans?
How do we book with you?
Why do you include an engagement session in all your packages?
What about posing? We are super awkward!!
What are your favorite types of weddings to photograph?
What is your typical turn around time?
Do you travel for weddings?
How many weddings do you take on per year?
Good things take time, but I am extremely impatient! LOL.
Engagements take anywhere from 3-4 weeks for deliver, and wedding galleries take 6-8 weeks! Now, I am very impatient, and I'm sure you are too, so I DO make sure to send ample previews so you aren't waiting tooooo long with nothing to see ;)
Ones where the couple really wants to enjoy their day and keep the focus on THEM! So many couples get caught up in the nitty gritty and what is trendy (which there is nothing wrong with that) But I personally love weddings that truly showcase the couple's personalities because that is what we are there to celebrate!
Believe it or not, most of the couples I work with have never had professional photos taken before and say the exact same thing! Can you tell by looking at the images on my website?! NOPE! So don't worry! Part of my job is to figure out yoru comfort level on camera, and from there find posing that works uniquely for you!
Like the previous question, most of my couples have never had professional photos taken together! This is totally normal, and what isn't totally normal is getting your photos taken! More importantly than having some bomb photos, its even more important to learn how you connect on camera and your comfort level of being on camera BEFORE I show up on your wedding day!
Because planning a wedding is already a lot of work (on top of all 12 million other things you have going on!) I try to make the booking process as easy as possible!
After deciding to work together, all you have to do is tell me which package sounds like the best fit, and from there I send you over a proposal that is active for 48 hours! This gives you plenty of time to sign the contract and pay your non-refundable retainer! Simple as that!
I take payments via card, credit card, or check! This is all on your client portal, where you'll also find the contract and a few other questionnaires that help us prepare for your wedding day!
While I don't offer payment plans, I do try and split your payments up to make each "chunk" a bit more manageable! There are 3 payments, one due at booking as your non-refundable/non-transferable retainer, one 6 months from your wedding date, and one due 1 month from your wedding date!
Think we'd be a great fit and you're ready to have the best day? Go ahead and fill out my inquiry form so I can start to learn all about your wedding day!
After I receive your inquiry, I'll send over my Pricing Guide that goes over LOTS of important info and includes tons of real sample galleries! From there, we will set up an inquiry meeting to make sure we are a good fit to work together!
I can't wait to hear from you! And don't forget to include all the super fun deatils! I want to hear it ALL!
